I have to laugh at the people that say they want to see the events of wow classic...I was sitting in silithus when the AQ gates opened on my server...screen froze up...unfroze 10 minutes later...I was in a graveyard with a few hundred other spectators...ran back to rez...accepted...saw a few anubiseth guys running around died again before all of them loaded...eventually gave up and spirit rezzed at the graveyard...There are things I miss from classic that being said...the original AV (I could care less about grinding for gear in a bg anyway) was actually fun with epic battles in the field of strife and everyone trying to summon the forest lord and the ice guy (can't remember his name)...The raids themselves were really at about the same difficulty as the current wrath raids...people did 40 man MC with 10-15 people...it would have been puggable if people had any clue about decursing and not pulling aggro..it certainly wasn't any harder than naxx to do...Razorgore wasn't that bad once your warriors learned how to kite...Vael was iffy...liked to blow up someone right as they dc'd in the middle of the melee group...or just turn and roast the party cause someone couldn't watch aggro or whatever...rest of bwl was cake though...As far as farming goes, it really depended on who you raided with but it wasn't really that bad even then...Just make an herbalist and an alchemist and you could sell stuff forever in AH...

I'm pretty sure AV only actually ended once a week on Malygos. Players just eventually left and got replaced like they were working a shift.Win or lose, an AV match actually ending was a server-wide event that everyone would be talking about.
