when the shaman's class colour was pink
when enchanters used to advertise the glow effects of their enchants because people liked red or blue glowing weapons.
when Dwarves were considered the best priest race by a mile.
when each class got their own personal revamp patch and when the shaman one got delayed because of severe problems with mages they busshocked.
When the world event Peon day still existed. (it was september 30)
Queueing for AV before an MC raid because you knew it would take 4 hours to get into it, that was ok because it lasted 8+ hours.
Raid dps as a rogue was autoattack then afk.
"Wait for 5 sunders."
Debuff limit on bosses and if you went over it, it pushed off the first one (good bye sunders, hello aggro.)
Fear juggling as a warlock.
Firestones vs. Spell Stones.
OOC rezzers and buff bot pallys.
Devilsaurs with ninja like sneaking skills.
Ammo pouches/quivers increased attack speed for hunters.
Innervate was a druid talent.
Certain specs were only for leveling or pvp (shadow priest, feral druid, arms warrior)
5 man group quests to kill elite mobs.
Mallet for ZF and Scepter for Mara got you into groups. Ring for UBRS got you into guilds.
And my all time favorite:
If the names Kalahad and Fury hold a special place of respect and envy.
