    You had (have?) spurs on your boots... Think they acted as an enchant aswell. People used to macro to swap boots and trinket (carrot indeed) upon mounting.

    Mind control and zone the opposing team out of the battleground :P


    Being a warlock and remembering how much gd work it took to get ANY of your pets unlocked (god forbid you want infernal or doomguard).

    Or doing any of the original dungeons with way too many people, like 40 man brd.

    When you remember getting dishonorable kills for killing lowbie, opposite faction, non-guard NPCs (like vendors).

    Easiest way to tell someone who played in vanilla is that they quit playing during/shortly after wrath.

    While simultaneously reading up on the game every day, and visiting a plethora of WoW related forums to whine and moan.

    You know you played in Vanilla when... you would enchant your low level weapons with beast slaying for that awesome red glow, or +7 weapon damage for the blue glow.

    Oh god yes!

    Also twinks had a level 19 Warrior fully decked out in the best twink gear around. He was a monster.

    If you know this joke:

    Q: How many rogues does it take to kill a paladin?



    A: Two: One at the paladin and one at Ironforge innkeeper

    Just for fun I am going to take this even farther back...

    You know you played in Beta when...

    You farmed skill points by soloing elite whelps in the Blasted Lands.
    You were able to learn every profession as long as you used enough skill points.
    You were able to play an undead character and speak with Alliance players.
    You played a paladin and totally destroyed undead players in PVP.
    You were able to learn skills like mob tracking on any class.
    You attempted to enter the plaguelands only to get obliterated by hidden Infernals.

    I used to raid with someone who got to Commander just for the mounts, then spent weeks farming dishonorable kills to get back down to private. Lol.

    You went to a cave (not in it) near Nethergarde Keep and tagged a "minion of IQYTW^Y" whatever... and this fellow couldn't die and did piss damage... so you would go afk and train your weapon skill.

    d) You remember Stratholme, Scholomance, Black Rock Depths, Upper and Lower Black Rock Spire being 10-15 man groups.
    e) You remember contribution points from combat in Hillsbrad during the South Shore vs Tauren Mill push and pull combat.
    f) YOU WERE AT the opening of Ahn Quraj Gates
    g) You remember the Trolls White Raptor
    h) You would kill for a Zandalari Hero Charm

    j) You remember Horde had Shamans, and Alliance had Bubble Hearth, I mean Paladins
    k) You remember Azeroth before Battlegrounds, Mauradon, Dire Maul
    l) You fought the 3 Green Drakes, Azeragos, and/or Kazzak
    m) Your Gnomish Death Ray and Shrinking Ray were devastating in PvP
    n) As a Rogue, you could stealth into Orgrimmar/Ironforge and use a Gnomish Mind Control cap to take control of a member of the opposite faction, and have them attack their flight master, for fun
    o) You had a piece of your Tier 0 gear ninja'd, and it upset you
    p) You qued for 2-8 hours for an Alterac Valley, just to spend the next 2-16 hours in the same battle
    q) You knew (for Horde) Peeling the onion was the only way to win AV because of the darn BERSERKER TROLL in the middle of AV
    r) You remember Sithilus as a deadzone
    s) You had no safe town/fp inside Western Plague Lands as Horde (what a terrible run back)
    t) The cave on the shore of Eastern Plague Lands was empty, and Tyrion was a hermit hiding out from the world in his small house
    u) You remember the battle for Darrowshire quest line
    v) Gold was neigh impossible to keep (if you were a raider)
    w) As a Mage you had to make raid food and water, TWO AT A TIME (or warlock shard farming)
    x) ONLY THE CHOSEN could make Hand of Sulfuron/Thunderfury
    y) You damn near crapped your pants when you saw your pvp opponent was in tier 2 shinies (pre AQ)
    z) You had to individually fly between flight masters as there was no Point A and B, there was Point A-Z

    Did those things in TBC :/

    I remember kiting the General in ... LBRS ? I think back to the Beast while the rest of the group killed the adds, then you feigned death and hope it didn't resist (it always resisted so I'd die every single time).

    Oh and the best part of vanilla (to me) was fly to southshore. Then start walking to silverpine, swim through the lake, aggro the murlocs on the little island in the middle, walk in front of undercity, hope you don't aggro the guards or a lvl 60 sees you. Keep walking, reach SM and run the (very long) instances there for hours. Fun times.

    Oh and the epic fight between Southshore and Tarren Mill before BGs we're released.

    You remember Sillithus being a deadzone? I guess you didn't open the gates of AQ then yet? Else that is a false answer.

    Anyone can find something someone said about vanilla in another thread or forum, repeat it, and pretend it's the good old days or whatever. Hell, remember that poll MMO-C had about when you joined a while back and the majority claimed vanilla? hmmm...
    You take this how seriously?

    Did it occur to you MMO-Champion is probably mostly visited by pretty serious gamers a rather large amount of whom would have played WoW in its first year?
