    Noggaholic. I still watch that video from time to time.

    You're a vanilla player if you remember questing in XR only to randomly get decimated by a 40 man Alliance raid. Or killing that poor group of 5 Alliance making a running towards RFK.

    I don't think anything else in the game has been as horribly broken as that spec was.
    Closer near the end of vanilla it become a good Warlock PvP spec though.

    Oh, and another good one that not many people know. In the beginning of vanilla WoW there was absolutely no existance of PvP yet.
    It's strange to realize now, but PvP was one of the major new things in one of the content patches of vanilla.
    Well not PvP. BGs and honor were added in a patch. Before this the TM and Southshore fights were most active.

    I for one didn't have enough gold to buy the 100% land speed mount until I was level 66. And to get flying I had to farm quests after hitting 70 for 2 weeks to get the 1000g to get that.
    By the time I hit 60, they had already swapped it so the expensive thing was the riding and the mounts themselves were cheap, which sucked since I had the pvp mount sitting in my bank. I was 63 or 64 (don't remember exactly except that I was in Zangarmarsh) when I could finally afford the epic riding.

    The first epic mount I got after my black warhorse was actually the green elekk (human character). I wanted one so bad that I spent a huge amount of time immediately after BC went live grinding exalted with the Draenei -- no easy feat then -- which meant thousands of runecloth turn-ins. I was too impatient to wait for the pvp version of the mount (good thing too since I don't think they added it until the end of Wrath). I actually hit exalted with them before my home faction on that character.

    WORTH IT. I had a badass elephant.

    There is no way anyone would remember this, because using the skill meant not having shield wall for another thirty minutes.

    When i think about it. There were some for rogues aswell and hunters if not misaken. Was is eviscerate. Although you learned that fom the trainer later but you could get a higher rank at earlier point if not mistaken. for hunters I think it was arcane shot, but not 100% sure here.
    Tranq shot was a hunter tome as well.


    Ontopic: Never wanting to go back is a good sign of having played vanilla.
    Example- How did you get flasks?

I played WoW since closed, final and release and yet I don't feel I'm worth or supposed to be more knowing than the new MoP players. This thread sounds more of a brag
    They are more important. And so are you.

    If you played vanilla, you knew what a Thorium Widget was even if you weren't an Engineer. Most likely you've bought an overpriced one off the AH!

    You played vanilla if you remember people leaving your MC and BWL raids because their AV queue popped. (Queue was HOURS long, and the games were DAYS long each)

    You played vanilla if you played a warlock pre-death coil.

    Still playing, still enjoying.

    I still remember that heart dropping moment when you've just formed your UBRS raid and you realise no one has the key. Or you finally get to Drak and the hunter says he doesn't understand what you mean by "Kite him to the beast's room... and back if you're good, dying is fine so long as you get that far though."

    You'll have to explain this one to me; I don't remember it at all. Was it needed for a quest or something?

    If I'm not mistaken, it was used for Dire Maul Tribute runs. There was a way to skip each boss except the last one to increase the loot you received at the end. I believe the Thorium Widget was used to activate the trap to freeze one of the ogre bosses, but someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    As for me, you know you've played vanilla when you get great nostalgic feelings about things mentioned in this thread, but think the game is much better off now since things are no longer the way they used to be.

    If you got a piece of T2 in Molten Core (and it wasn't the pants from Ragnaros).

    If you had a PvP rank title in TBC, Wrath.

    One of our mages got his T2 shoulders off Magmadar. He nearly shat himself.

    If you remember the crazy turban of Jihad that was priest T2 helm at launch :x
