    You know who oldschool people are? Those who know the real reason behind Scarlet Crusaders having an ability called Holy Strike.

    No clue tbh. Didn't paladins have a strike in the beta? I missed the beta by a few days

    You nailed it. They have Holy Strike because they're the original paladins. During beta the players' skills got changed, but npcs remained as initially developed.

    Will of the Forsaken used to make Forsaken completely immune to Fear/Charm/Sleep but they were susceptible to Priest/Pally abilities such as Turn Evil and Shackle Undead.

    Go back far enough and Forsaken were classified as undead, therefore passively immune to fear, charm, and sleep. But Paladins specifically could wreck them.

    I remember having to SNEAK past Undercity to get to SM. I was really scared I would be ganked. Summoningstones were unheard of.

    I remember walking to Booty Bay to get a boat to get to a Thousand Needles... that was a LONG run. I didn't really quest in Stranglethorn. So I did not have many if any Flight Paths.

    I remember feeling very nervous landing with the boat at the Barrens... knowing I was in the "enemies territory". I felt like a trespasser.

    Once I got my paladin 60% speed mount, I felt really lucky, as other people needed to pay a lot to get the riding skill + mount. I just got it for free as a quest. The 100% mount was a different story. Altho cheaper (I found a Black Pristine diamond) it was a very hard quest. And when I first used it, I felt like I was as fast as the wind!

    I remember seeing an alliance person for the first time. In Ashenvale. It was a druid and I was on my shaman. Battle lasted for hours! Tried to get to gnomeragen or w/e its called. Took ages did it once and never again XD

    I remember participating in a "charge". All mounts in a straight line before we attempted to thrash Crossroads or Tarren Mill.

    It was an awesome sight. I can't recall feeling more pride in being Alliance (even if we got butchered by the guards). Never saw the horde make such a line.

    Ofcourse making the line was just for show... it didn't have any effect.

    I remember seeing a Tauren for the first time. It was in Scarlet Monastery. WoW was just a few weeks old and this guy (Nez, Aggramar EU) was a few levels higher then me. I opened the door with the key from the library, and voila this HUGE Tauren was staring at me. I ran like only a little paladin could! He seemed to be afk at the time, but I didn't know that.

    Scared the hell out of me.

    I know some of these things and I am not a vanilla player.

    I did one walk through all of Mulgore with 3 friends, 2 of them being players since Beta and they were all like "Oh and this place is where there was a massive fight!" "THIS IS THE ROCK WE USED TO SIT ON OMG!"

    Robin also went: Oh... Sander, Wait... Come to me now.

    Sander: Wut?

    Robin: If I am correct, there's a mining node in a few meters, it was my first node ever.


    We walk a bit further and surely, Robin shouts: FUCK, THIS IS MY FIRST MINING NODE!

    Awesome how stuff like that happens. :P

    Haha yeah I remember battling a druid aswell as a paladin. It took indeed HOURS... and since we were in such a remote area (in the plaguelands somewhere), no one came to help either of us.

    Actually created a toon on the horde side later on, to talk to this guy/girl. We greeted eachother ever since and refrained from battling eachother again haha.

    Good times

    i can remembe a time in vanilla when there was a patch that swapped the price for the mout with the proffesion, so mounts were 1000g a pop and the tallent was a lot cheeper then they changed it after so the talent cost more and the mounts were alot cheeper...... also farming dire maul for the epic book to get quell'sera. or how labourious it was to lvl a pala and get its mount!

    The honour system came out with ranks on one of the patches afaik. Prior to that there was nothing for pvp. Just you and the other players. The 1st night pvp honour came out my word did TM/SS get a beating!

    Also I remember when a few friends killed some NPCs and even though I did nothing I was in the same group and I got the DK flag lost a lot of my work that week! :P

    Yeah, the paladin mount quest could be very expensive at that time if you weren't lucky with the drops, but it was really fun to do a 5-paladin Scholo run Especially using different seals and their judgments on mobs on the special boss fight.

    Also, if you played Vanilla as a paladin, you remember that seals had short duration and were consumed when Judgment was used Also, Seal of the Crusader, Seal of Command (aka Seal of Casino) and Seal of Fury

    Seal of Wisdom - Seal of Light

    Remember standing in the corner ontop of those piles of skulls/bones, waiting for the next wave to come at us. It was pretty difficult and you couldn't do it alone... you needed atleast 1(2?) more paladins to complete this.

    Yeah resealing was a bitch... Think you had 30 seconds per seal... and it costed a lot of mana too.

    OOOO also

    Carrot on a stick trinket + mount speed enchants on gloves I think. Made you just a tiny bit faster

    Mind controlling people and deleting their gear.
    One cannot simply quit wow his way into Mordor.
