I would expect a rather large boost in numbers because of WoW Classic.
The question I wonder is, what lesson will they take from it?

The DPS cannot hear the healer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Class quests in Classic is one reason why i’m excited to play it, i think it was a mistake to take them out, as Blizzard usually do they overcorrect, so instead of changing the quests to make them less tedious they removed them and with them the learning abilities system, add to that many class quests to obtain good gear, so many quests removed with first patch for Cataclsym.

So i’m happy to try all of that in Classic.

Its going to be interesting to see how questing in the plaguelands turns out. The old Darrowshire questline was pretty much impossible without a party.
