    That guy is fucking terrible. He thinks it's his gear. It's him. He doesn't know how to play, at all. His opponents are trash too, but still do better than him. And while Warriors are considered shit until they get geared up at 60, that doesn't apply to level 30 twink PvP where Warriors can aggressively scale with gear while all the casters are hard-pressed to find any +spell damage or +healing at all.

    At low levels anything deals physical damage via weapons were god-like if you found a decent weapon for that level. Ench.shamans were much more broken thanks to having magic on top of it, I remember killing same level magi with 1 frost shock and proced melee attack.
    I miss those good'ol unbalanced days. Days before that Arena fuckery...

    It's for the best. Any famous streamer would get constantly ganked or surround themselves with an army of orbiters making any zone they're in unplayable.

    All streamers are from the US.

    Europe is free from this disease.

    Hivemind, stop being a fucking LARPer.

    Those days are not coming back. In 1.4 they nerfed Windfury from 3 bonus attacks to 2 (also WF will no longer proc off itself) and in 1.11 they cut windfury's bonus attack power by half. Windfury was determined to be overpowered despite the fact that it failed as a DPS spec in PvE and was a crap spec for PvP since you're basically playing slots hoping for that 20% proc to put you within a margin of victory, not to mention you're playing a melee without without charge or sprint. Classic WoW is 1.12 so enjoy. The good news is that since the Blizzard balance team does not understand the game they were balancing, they believed enhance was the PvP spec and nerfed it when in reality the best Shaman PvP spec was 30/0/21 elemental which does surprisingly high damage, cannot be kited, and has much better heals.

    I expected streamers would roll PvE, honestly. So play a PvP server and your server will probably never have to deal streamers. Instead you just have to deal with a 40% rogue server population up your ass, but you could always be the rogue. Or a druid, but then you need to raid for gear.

    I suspect Windfury was nerfed because of the totem. Enh shaman was never a good spec in vanilla, be it PvP or PvE, it was a one-trick pony that heavily relied on RNG and it had nothing else going for it.

    Considering the Beta is capped at 30, Warriors should be doing monster damage compared to other classes since you can do the Berserker Stance quest line in Arathi Highlands and get the Whirlwind Axe which is pretty much a level 40 weapon. They should be gibbing lifebars.

    Yeah, I'm not worried. All the big streamers are definitely from NA, so we'll at least be free from Assmongoloid and the other retards running around with 500 people helping them.

    Having the same thoughts myself. Considering you either need to raid or grinds premade BGs to get decent gear the hours required are pretty steep.

    Eh, not really. It depends on how active you want to be. PvP gear is a grindfest and I don't recommend it. Vanilla PvP is terrible in general and there's no way to test your skills, it's just an almost endless grind. As for raids, you can only log in for 3 hours a week and do the current content, it's not that big of a deal. But if your guild wants you to run every raid, it can get very time-consuming. The guild as an entity does need to farm every raid throughout the whole vanilla, MC for bindings, BWL for elementium and some BiS gear, ZG for enchants, AQ20/40 for books and idols, world bosses for BiS items. Only Onyxia doesn't drop anything that is always needed if you don't rotate your raid roster, since you need her scales for the cloak. When I played in Kronos, I didn't want to raid anything other than current tier and I didn't. I was low priority for drops due to that, however, even though I was there from the start and never missed a raid, so it depends on your loot council. I eventually got everything I wanted, though, so it's just a matter of time and patience.

    As for consumable grinding, if you grind everything, it's time-consuming. If you play the AH, it's not only incredibly faster and more efficient, but also fun. So, yeah, the grind is overstated in the sense there are ways around it.

    This is a necessary rule because as you continually gear people up (including newer people) you need enough raiders to do some amount of older content.
