The launch of WoW Classic has been plagued by server issues

World of Warcraft Classic does not have any cross-realm zones, where people with characters on different servers can encounter each other. The current version of World of Warcraft uses this technology, which Blizzard calls sharding, to ensure that players are evenly distributed across zones (shards). With cross-realm raiding, the Dungeon/Raid Finder, and communities in the live version of the game, the only pillars of realm identity are guilds.

In Classic, Blizzard is replicating the entire continent as opposed to just zones through a technology called layering that was invented specifically for the launch of Classic. The plan is to remove it by Phase 2. There will be no cross-realm zones or Dungeon Finder, which makes the servers players are on matter.

Prior to creating your character, you have to choose a realm. WoW Classic has 29 realms right now, a mix of normal PvE, PvP, and combination realms. You’ll see if a Realm has a low, medium, or high player count before you jump in. Realms with higher player counts will take longer to queue into. Just a heads up: Wait times during launch week have peaked at around 10 hours. To enhance your adventure and compliment your gameplay, you can Buy WOW Vanilla Gold from the reputable sellers 5mmo.com in a safe secure environment and at cheap rates.

World of Warcraft Classic is available now on PC and Mac. You can download the game client on Battle.net. As far as price, World of Warcraft Classic doesn’t cost anything upfront. However, you need to have an active WoW subscription to play. Subscriptions are $15 per month, and if you already have a current WoW subscription you’re good to go. A subscription covers both modern WoW and Classic. You can save money by purchasing a six-month subscription for $13/month or a three-month subscription for $14/month.

WoW Classic is an almost exact recreation of World of Warcraft as it existed in 2006, just before the first expansion, The Burning Crusade, came out. That means combat will be much slower and more lethal, quests will be less intuitive and dynamic, and getting around the world will take a hell of a lot longer. At the same time, WoW Classic resurrects that hardcore breed of MMO that so many people originally fell in love with.
