    OT. hunters had quivers that added 15% haste, and were also an ammo bag.

    Yeah except early on a lot of us 'enjoyed' running on foot, until 60. Who actually had 100g from questing back then?

    When you needed four people with the Aqual Quintessence for MC to douse the runes as it was a one-use item back then and you had to re-visit the giant water elemental in Azshara to get a refill.

    --None of us "old timers" actually call it vanilla, but rather remember what WoW used to be like lol?
    --Bringing eight pallies to a raid, and every single one of them was holy...
    --Taking an entire 40man raid into UBRS/LBRS entrace to MC that mob and get the damn buff
    --Making rogues disarm traps in the suppression room
    --having four tanks lined out to "die" on Vael, without any kind of threat meter at all...
    --Best gear in the game was from raiding only, and all the pvp gear had zero resilience
    --Doing Mara runs to farm NR gear lol

    You didn't, you had to work the AH aswell and buy almost nothing, also lvl'ing professions? Nu uh. Not untill late in vanille did they increase the gold from quests. I believe it was in the patch when lvl 60's where able to gain profit from doing quests after they dinged 60. Exp became gold for them. When it first came out I was like, WOOHOO 2g50silver for a quest, only 400 more quests till my epic mount. Altho there wheren't that many quests lol.

    I've not read the whole thread so most of these have probably been said.

    You remember when there was no honor point system.
    You remember random loot chests could be found around the world.
    You remember that hunters had access to three pets only.
    You remember that non mob loot/herbs/nodes/etc did not sparkle.
    You remember that gold was scarce to come by.
    You remember that Sylvanas had a night elf model.
    You remember that you didn't get your first mount until level 40, and when you got it, it felt like god.

    When a tank breaking 8 k hp was almost unheard of.
    When orc rogues were almost unstunnable doe to racial
    When you could macro a rogue to use 1 button for the entire rotation with if slice and dice is on and if 5cp (check cold blood), eviscerate, if slice and dice is =<3seconds slice and dice, else sinister strike, I dont remember the exact code anymore, but it was so amazing...

    Well that's easy. They never want to go back to Vanilla.

    I am almost positive that Plainstriding was never live. It was removed while the game was in open beta.

    You sir are correct. Plainstriding never made it to vanilla, along with silly things like paladin auras being abilities you had to keep on your bar

    If, as a druid, you remember getting on the boat from Auberdine to Menethil, then running through the Wetlands, through the mountain pass into Loch Modan, up into Ironforge, getting the tram to Stormwind, then running down to the coast off of Westfall to do the quest for your aquatic form, after reading up how to do it on Thottbot.
    Did you like the above post? How about sending me a dollar? I'd have adverts here but apparently that'd break ToS.
