I, personally, do not get HOW the players find this enjoyable, seeing that it took me 15 days played to just reach 60 in Vanilla (not Classic) on a single character, and died so many times. Couldn't even really afford weapon skills, so when I finally got Azuresong Mageblade in MC, I couldn't equip it.But, obviously, players have the right to enjoy the game however they want, and I respect them for doing something I can not.
It's surprisingly good. Since you've already leveled before, the next time around won't take as long. You'll be able to properly plan your talents, professions and routes, or at least have a better idea than before.Some people speed run it, some people do it with extra restrictions for "achievements". But the most fun for me is seeing everyone take it super seriously in the community, dying really does mean delete, and everyone plays along.It has breathed fresh life into Classic, has added an unexpected source of replayability, and is only getting more popular.
