"LFG 45 Baron"
"ffs ganked by scarlet courier"
Waiting outside the actual Battleground Instances to queue up. Man, so many people at Silverwing Hold. It feels strange riding up there now and it just being dead.
Considering A)It's not on Earth and B)The Alliance no longer owns it, nor is the zone even relevant anymore, you're right.Originally Posted by Solia
I think the single best one has to be the gold lol. Getting the obscene amounts for your epic mount was an achievement in itself. Outside of getting massive guild help for my epic mount, I don't think I ever saw more than 1k in the entirety of Vanilla. BC was a different story, we were ALL suddenly rolling in gold!
You're a Vanilla player if you cried when you replaced your T2/T3 raiding epics with BC greens before you even hit 61 >.>
Killed almost everything in vanilla, if was great at the time but the only thing memorable (positive anyways, tons of grindy negaitves) was after months and months spending every single copper piece I'd save for a looong ass time and getting on that badass dreadsteed for the first time.
Apply blizzards model to any other subscription service,you'd be outraged:
Netflix adds no new movies for a year, you click a new movie, there's a $5 fee.
You're in an accident, click your onstar button, but there's an addition $20 fee for them to help.
You turn on your tv only to find all you get are the infomercial channels. Every other show is pay per view.
See how dumb that model is?
If you still avoid Hillsbrad while leveling an alt out of habit.
Drakedog the warlock pvp master
having riding enchant on gloves, mithril spurs on boots, and carrot on a stick for faster moving in PVP
Engineer trinkets that reflect a certain school of magic like frost or fire
using noggenfogger to jump from the giant tree to darkshore
climbing the mountains behind kargath to get underneath stormwind
If you remember barrens chat or mankirks wife or remember the paladins during molten core who had to give buffs all raid long.

Prey on the weak and you will survive, prey on the strong and you will live.
I know most of these "You know' things, and I started at the end of LK..
And some of the stuff here still existed pre 4.0.1, and still some in cata.

When warriors had to "stance dance" fears on onyxia/neff.
Farming encrypted twilight texts and cultist gear in Silithus to pay for your epic mount, and after you're done realizing you too wanted exalted with the Cenarion circle for the AQ20 mace.
You played Vanilla if you admit it was a terrible game and you feel you wasted your time on it, and you lay awake at night wishing you'd just played when TBC came out instead.
Also you keep mistaking everything for Molten Core scenery.
It will never go away.
You remember Naxxramas as 40-man endgame content.

well UBRS was a 15m dungeon. I still remember queuing for that.
The old "best way" was ppl with pvp titles but as they brought those back... I guess checking WHEN someone got a pvp title. If it's from the date of the achievements patch they're likely vanilla

You played vanilla if you remember the original Badass Warrior Weapon was Blackhand Doomsaw, not some pussy "arcanite reaper" bullshit.
You played vanilla if you remember a time when you could tell some uppity little Paladin to "shut the fuck up and heal me," and they'd say okay instead of raging about the Blizzard bourgeoisie trying to keep the hard working Ret Paladin down.
Another thing, I'll never forget dueling in Ironforge by using the little pillar trick to challenge. I don't remember when they fixed it, but it made me so sad.
