Nostalrius 1.12.1 Vanilla / Classic Server Review/Thoughts from a level 60 [World of Warcraft]

November 3rd, 2017: This server is no longer in existence. I am leaving this video here for historic purposes. Please play on Blizzard’s upcoming Classic World of Warcraft servers if you would like to try Vanilla WoW.

I share my thoughts and give a mini-review of my time on the Nostalrius private server which runs World of Warcraft on patch 1.12 (Vanilla WoW). The video in the background was taken pre-level 60, just to give you an idea of how the game runs (killing mobs, PVP, looting, the auction house, flying, mounts, etc).

I am in no way affiliated with Nostalrius.

One thing people don’t really mention about vanilla is (well, probably because it’s a bit of a ‘non issue’ nowadays, but it is still something worth mentioning) the LIGHTNESS of the client, there is NOTHING too it, it takes NADDA to run and there’s technically no install, it’s super light and you can run like 10+ clients on any sort of relatively modern rig. I remember starting playing live originally, the lagfest that was IF with my 512mb ram and graphics card with 64mb memory…

I miss Nostalrius so much. I actually started playing vanilla wow here in 2014-2015. I wanted to play on a nice server and found Nostalrius. It was so popular and a great community. I loved every minute i were there. Right now i dont play wow but i really miss it. So all i can say is thank you nost, it will never be the same and i wont be playing on Kronos even know it’s a vanilla server.

denis says:

Mark Reynolds says:

kappa says:

meanwhile in live: blizzard asks for 13 euros/month and all my characters are stuck in a dead server with none to play. and they wont even do anything about it

Phoenix Phalanges says:

God I hated Cataclysm so fucking much.. Ruined everything, watching this and seeing Org like it used to be is so painfully nostalgic :,(

Zyphera says:

RIP! Blizzard will slay any attempt of bribing you back.

FukU2222 says:

The biggest thing I think that was important to Nost was their patch progression, they literally started with the patch that was right after plainswalking was removed. And progress all the way to Naxx over time.

RIP indeed, although I could not BOTHER with nost simply because of like 2k people all rushing around in starting zones fighting over scraps. Like a week just to get to level 10, wasn’t so bad once they opened the other server, but damn. So crazy to see this demand… How did they even create all the hype!?
