Agreed, and when they said they were going to use the 1.12 patch I was disappointed. 1.11 would have been a far greater version of Classic if they had simply included a few of the tweaks to itemization and talents in 1.12.
Second, I don’t want to see Burning Crusade. Would prefer Classic+. Burning Crusade was the beginning of undoing all of the original Vanillla work with flying mounts to mess up land travel and PvP, dailies, and other nonsense like Paladins for Horde and Shamans for Alliance.
