In another article we mentioned a few things you’ll miss from Retail, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have them in Classic! Although we can’t help you with Spirit healer not being available, luckily there are some addons for you that helps in other ways.
Though addons from the original Classic cannot be used in the modern Engine of Classic, most of the new addons are being ported to Classic.
- Vendor Price :
This might come as a surprise to some people, but you couldn’t see vendor prices in Classic. This addon helps you to see how much is an item worth if you sell it to vendor. Simple, easy.
