    ... when bosses had only 8 debuff slots for a whole freaking 40 man raid.
    Please correct me if I'm impossibly sexy for no reason.

    I haven't played on Al'akir EU since a good bit before Naxx40 release, yet I can still remember the name of the server's first High Warlord and Scarab Lord: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...ar/Lylz/simple

    Menethil Harbor ---> Dun Algaz all the way through Wetlands by foot.. You would know every croc on the side of the road by it's first name. because they all wanted to have you for a snack. You were level 16, they were level 20 - 22.
    Dun Algaz ---> Dun Morogh. Trying to get past the damn orc bandits who basically blocked the way through the pass, and were also level 20 - 22.
    Dun Morogh ---> Ironforge. When you finally arrived in IF, like 45 min to an hour after you took off in Auberdine, and you didn't die more than 3 times, you felt epic!!
    Haha, I had totally forgot about that run. So tidious, but so nostalgic! My heart was beating quite fast running that route.

    Yeah, thorium widget was used to freeze the guy so you didn't have to kill him. You got better loot if you finished the tribute run without killing him.

    Kind of related, but who remembers getting to that robot gorilla quest in Un'Goro and not having a Mithril Casing on them?

    "Remember when" conversations are the lowest form of conversation.

    OH, and you know if someone played vanilla if they knew about whipper root tubers, and knight dragons breath. Throw in some blasted boar lungs too while you're at it

    I think the type of conversation you're attempting is even lower.

    Not read 1 comment about:

    Being in a 40 man raid and only having party frames

    Or

    Paladins having to buff everyone one at a time and by the time you got to last person the buff was nearly run out on the first one

    Or

    Arcane Power and Zandalarian Hero Charm

    Or

    Knowing what Thistle Tea is.

    Holly ball's, completely forgot about that run... The first time you get to IF as a little bitty Night Elf.....

    I actually belive I had an escort, just a friendly by-passer, but I really cant renember now days...Good fucking shit.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    Oh man, we did so many three man runs to get my friend in there for his enchanting training.

    At Burning Crusade launch he stopped playing and gave his account to a mutual friend, who immediately decided enchanting was too costly and dropped it for herbalism so he could make money. It's silly because it's not his account anymore and he'll never come back, but when I saw that, I felt sick to my stomach. We put in so many runs!

    If you used a mod package called "Insomniax".

    Using a mod pack back then was common for anyone that used mods as using mods was a new concept, a very new concept.

    The Wetlands-Khaz Modan Marathon. I will never forget that run on lowbie elves on my way to level in Dun Morogh or Elwynn due to how boring I found Teldrassil/Darkshore/Ashenvale to be.

    Awesome sig by Elyaan is awesome.

    Two classic ranks are shown due to account-wide achievements.

    My 8 year old Paladin main

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...vement#81:a472 The rank I actually earned on my Paladin.

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...vement#81:a440

    My 8 year old Hunter alt

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...vement#81:a452 The rank I actually earned on my Hunter.

    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...vement#81:a449

    Positive nostalgia, not to be confused with rose-tinted-glasses.

    We share the same classic rank on our Alliance main, and I'm also retired, but contemplating Mists just for the exquisite music/quests.

    When I was bored in BC at 70, I'd patrol the Wetlands Marathon road to escort low-level night elves and draenei to Ironforge.

    i'd rather farm my epic mount OUTSIDE of doing anything dungeon/raid related lol..

    farmed whelps in badlands for the pet whelp, got a drop, sold it for 300g, and got the epic dagger out of it which i (idiotically) used because it was SOO much better than my lvl 36 dagger....)

    i was a weird combat daggers spec, imp ambush +daggerspec/precision/crit, and crit / backstab crit on assassination.

    i'd ambush -> gouge -> backstab -> evis. mobs would be dead.
    Still I cry, tears like pouring rain, Innocent is my lurid pain.

    You played vanilla if you have the old type of epic mounts, white raptor etc.
    If you did the drakefire amulet questchain.
    If you remember what hydraxian waterlords rep really was used for.
    If you had to go raid, to get the tome that made you learn Frostbolt rank 14 etc.
    If you remember how tidious it was to prepare to fight Garr in MC.
    If you know what detect magic was, and wich boss in MC it was important to use it.

    I think those are vanilla only memories^^ can't remember more worth mentioning atm ;P

    When players could have only one of each HoT so you had to let the druid/priest with the most healing put it on the tank or risk his wrath.
