i agree with .Razed#7 and would like to add that blizzard ruined the game, only because of their greed for money.. i wouldn't advise any1 to support this company.
As a mage told me once: i put 3 points in improved blizzard, but the company still sucks
If u really want to play what they call WoW today, search for a nice private server
i don't know 1 server where ur character gets lost when the server shuts down.. exept you created it 2 mins ago... and since the blizzard servers are laggin', there's no real difference between a private server and the retail servers.
and i think it's appropriate to say, that the real wow feeling is dead since TBC.
