Actually the original was so much better for community building because you had to basically get to know people. Need to go to another continent. Get to know some mages. Meet warlocks to summon you to dungeons. Etc.
Agreed. I came from EverQuest, where you had to group for everything. WoW classic had you group here and there, but even that felt like you were sequestered from the other players...until endgame and you suddenly needed to run 5-mans to be able to raid or do pvp.
