1.12 is probably the right choice. Classic WoW is a better game than Modern WoW, pound for pound, and I say this while remaining cognizant of how stripped down and basic the old game will feel in comparison. It was, as much as any MMO could be, a game where all the elements helped realize a coherent vision. It was a game where your choice of race, class, spec, professions, and gear really made a difference. It was a game where the level grind to 60 was not subservient to a bloated, arcane, top heavy endgame. It was a game with really tight five-man dungeons that would try to kill you, including in the early and mid game. Even while traversing the wilds you had to stay on your toes because pulling more than one enemy at a time, depending on your your class and how good you were, could actually get you killed. It was also a game with The Barrens, so it wasn't all amazing, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't consider The Crossroads a second home, perhaps only after Orgrimmar. The server raid (Bronzebeard) on Darnassus was glorious. We lost, but still.
Not to be that guy, but they made WoW too accessible. Too [i]casual[/i] and reliant on mindless grinding, at least for all non-raid content. When you have people like my own sister saying that leveling has become too easy to be any fun then there really is a problem.
I don't think I'll have enough time for WoW Classic for the remainder of my working life, but it has my unwavering support all the same... I'll probably try it out for a month or two though. May as well roll a Troll Shaman all over again.

I'd have preferred Burning Crusade, but I'll definitely check it out.
