    You know you played vanilla if you ever encountered the INSANELY huge nameplates, most often in BGs
    You know you played vanilla if you cringed anytime "Tribute run" was mentioned in the guild chat.
    You know you played vanilla if you wore green and blue gear for ragnaros and vael.
    You know you played vanilla if you made all your gold as a rogue in feralas and WPL.
    You know you played vanilla if "LOOT THE DOG" was one of the most frequent phrases ever said in raid chat or ventrilo/TS2.
    You know you played vanilla if shazzrah was where you skilled your ranged weapons up as melee.
    You know you played vanilla if you bought minor beastslayer just to have a glowing weapon (yes I did that)
    You know you played vanilla if you remember "Where can I find Mankrik's Wife?"
    You know you played vanilla if you used Thottbot or Allakhazam.
    You know you played vanilla if you spent most of the boss fight afk as a warlock.
    You know you played vanilla if you farmed worthless lowlevel crap for the gates of ahn'qiraj.

    And finally:
    You know you played vanilla if you were absolutely fucking clueless about the game, compared to how you are now.

    If you were Horde, you loved Sergra Darkthorn. If you were Alliance, you hated her.

    ... and if you joined later, you have no idea why anyone would care about her.

    Yes! This definitely.

    If you were a Druid and had to spec resto in order to raid, because your innervate was a 30 point talent, and needed for Priests.
    If you have the original game manual, where it says Druids can use spears (which wasn't true until much later).
    You refer to Molten Core as "Molten Bore".
    You remember having to become attuned to enter raids.
    You remember, as a Hunter, having to do the insane questline for Lok'Delar and Rhok'Delar, and if anyone messed with the demons while you were fighting them, you were screwed, having to wait hours for a respawn.
    Paladins and Warlocks having to do quests for their epic mounts.

    You remember people being able to do this before world bosses and dragons had leashes.-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jl0VWJdE01M

    wich is wrong as there was also a sword with the same +10 for skinning and palas CAN use swords...

    - 2nd is a little dodgy because you can only prove you were lvl60 at the start of BC. You have the Tabard of the Protector.

    Ok the actual 3rd is, which is an ultimate proof, you link your account payment history. I won't lol! And I suggest you the same.
    Another way is if you have a PvP title, since those were done away right before BC.

    You can check if someone has feats of strength for pvp ranks on their character, or wearing 60 pvp gear skins transmogged. There's also a feat of strength and tabard for the TBC pre-event.

    Actually, you could probably do a "How to know if someone didn't REALLY play Vanilla" thread. I hear a lot of stupid stuff about how great things were and how blizzard have ruined things. There's a lot of myths about Vanilla and what was aweome in it which, if you had actually played, were in reality painstaking chores.

    A lot was fun in Vanilla, and it's true a lot has been dumbed down massively, BUT a lot was a VERY tedious grind and it did take bloody ages to walk anywhere or quest, let alone getting a group together.



    You do realise that a great proportion of Vanilla players couldn't afford Epic mount/Riding at the time? It was a crazy amount and definately one of the money-sinks of its day.
    Vanilla was awesome at the time. WoW was so new, and a lot of fun. I think some people do miss that feeling they got when they played it back then, not necessarily the content. Vanilla was hard, I wouldn't want to go back. You were pigeon-holed into certain specs, even more then you are now. I remember as a Druid having to be resto to raid, because that was THE spec. There were no compromises if you wanted to raid. Making gold was hell. I only got my epic mount in vanilla because a guildie of mine was quitting WoW, and gave me all his gold...haha.

    That's right, I forgot about the rated BG's. I never did them. I do have that Feat of Strength on my Druid, though.

    Don't make fun of her gear...lol. I didn't have a ton of time to play her toward the end of Cataclysm, and I focused a lot of my time on my Priest. My Druid was my oldest toon, though.

    ... if they know how to run DM, UBRS, LBRS, ZF, Mara, or BRD.


    EDIT: I have 4 different FoS for Vanilla pvp titles. Makes me happy.

    Haha, my druid was so freaking terrible at everything in vanilla, was pretty funny looking, even resto was pretty much a second class healer. No one played druid so I did get gear awefully fast in raids.

    When you refused to change specs on your enhancement shaman because it meant having to level Two handed maces/axes again if you didn't enjoy it and wanted to go back after.

    Heck, even when you used 2 handed maces/axes on your shaman works.

    I was incredibly stubborn...haha. I refused to give up on my Druid, even though people kept telling me other classes were better. I'm glad I didn't listen, because I truly did enjoy my Druid until the end.

    This isn't a particularly good litmus test. I started playing late BC and I remember a good deal of these...

    Like paladin seals only lasting 30 seconds and being consumed when using Judgment.
    My allies are my sword; I am their shield.

    Holy crap, June of 2005. I had been deployed to Iraq in Jan. 05 and hadn't even heard of WoW.

    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...

    Druids were sooooo bad back then . Purposely picked them out with my shaman back then because they were a free kill haha. Purge + Earth shock + 2handed mace massive WF crit(How I miss those) and they just rolled over.

    Sure they could. They took daggers away from paladins right about the time of the Reckoning nerf. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xhgvouRprw

    I'm not exactly sure what abillity they used as i din't play lock nor hunter back then, but i DO remember my dad helping a hunter in his guild doing that quest (altho i only watched them doing the winterspring demon).... my dad was a lock.

    And well, lets see.... Like others have mentioned: The mount cost, altho it was only 20g for the riding skill, that you used for both lvl 40 and 60 mounts, while the mounts themselves costed 90 (normal = lvl 40) and 900 or so ("epic" = lvl 60). Ohh and a fun thing that not many people know these days about mounts: Both normal and epic mounts was common in the way that both kinds had white text. Blizz later changed them to blue(rare) and epic(purple) cause players used those words for them already.
    You also had to carry your mounts and pets around as actuall items taking up bag space untill TBC or so(?)

    Naxx used to be 40 man raid dropping tier 3, the attunement quest required nexus crystals and a few other items, making it really expensive in the start (atleast for casuals like i was back then)... even tho i wasn't in a raiding guild i still did the attunement just to enter the instance so i could see what the inside looked like, and to kill Biggelsworth, KT's kitty at the entrance (Still there in wotlk version of naxx)

    People farming the spellcaster mobs in northern part of western plaguelands for crusader enchant recipie, even tho there was like 5-10 mobs total there that dropped it, and they didn't respawn that quick. I remember my old stephmom doing this or hours to sell the formula... she was a Night elf warr so took some time to farm it aswell.

    Ohh and last one from me: the patch when ZG was introdused.... i dare anyone from vanilla to search for the ZG patch video. You will realise how much blizz has improved at making patch intro videos, and you'll be punched in the face by nostolgia

    Secondly, that +int buff for increasing skill is a complete myth.
