Security of the client and global interest is the WOW TBC Gold main thing I worry about. The 3.X client is superior as it has a more refined engine and the tools are much easier to use. However, I'm concerned that I'll lose this Vanilla aspect to switch from 2.X to 3.X.X and I'm not interested in releasing WOTLK-related content. Also, I'm not sure if anyone would want to play on a custom 2.4.3 server.

There are a lot of custom server launches, and their popularity never diminishes. My opinion is that they are launched with little information. I can assure you that a server would launch if it just announced itself after putting in the effort.

3.3.5 emulators are definitely not less suited to quality compared to the 1.12.1 emulators. This information isn't available to me. Trinitycore has 34k commits, compared to 4,8k on vmangos. TrinityCore is much more advanced in terms of both stability and quality. you have tons of options for tools that aren't compatible with 1.12.1 emulators.

VMaNGOS its strength is that it includes work put into while used to run Nostalrius and Light's Hope. There are plenty of problems such as instabilities, vulnerabilities, and other similar things that can only be seen on large populace servers. This is VMaNGOS strengths. Because its main use case is vanilla servers, it scales well. It is a single server that does it well, vanilla. Darrowshire is a perfect example of this.Recently they also included an adaptation of the Warden anti-cheat

This has been discussed before, but I'll attempt to make it more exciting. It's possible to do this if you are having fun. The client you choose to use is merely the matter of choice. WotLK clients are better, since they offer access to a variety of new tools and may be modified. Content is mostly identical, with only a few differences in talents and knowledge.

If you're embarking on this enormous project with the idea in your mind of having a large playerbase, then you're wasting your time. This community doesn't flock to custom servers and even were they to, their excitement about new releases will cause them to consume the cheap Burning Crusade Classic Gold entire server in three months when it took 1+ years to complete.
