    This a thousand times over. I remember the feeling of satisfaction whenever I got my epic ground mount after a week or so of farming like a madman. Even had to borrow the last 10g because I was just exhausted.. and then POW.. OMFGIMSOFASTWHATISTHISNONSENSEWHEREHASITBEENALLMYLIFE?!

    How to know if someone played vanilla!
    You can talk about anything in vanilla that the newer players from TBC -> MoP can't know about.
    "You played vanilla if..." finish this sentence.

    I'll do a few examples:

    You played vanilla if you killed Kazzak in Blasted Lands.
    You played vanilla if you farmed Tyr's hand in EPL.
    You played vanilla if you know what benediction is as a Priest.
    ... if you can name all priest racials.
    ... if you know about 21/8/22 as a Rogue.
    ... if you know this inn music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SImDN0CDXPA (Human inns only).
    ... when warlocks had to farm soulshards before raiding or doing anything really, poor guys. And when a soulshard took a bagslot.
    ... when hunters needed ammo for their ranged weapons, and the ammo stacked per 200 and took bagslots. And there was different types of ammo's, very strong ammo could be made by engineers.
    ... when guards gave honor.
    ... when you got knocked down by the [The Unstoppable Force]
    ... when Ironforge was the main city where everyone on Alliance hanged out because it was the only city with a Auction House.
    ... when Innerfire (Priest selfbuff) gave attack power.
    ... If you knew who Broken Tooth was as a hunter.

    Point of this thread? To remember certain things about vanilla WoW that you forgot now that someone else mentions it!
    I didn't play vanilla and I know or did half of those...
    What bosses will be in the Deathwing Raid?

    If you did all the quests to get the hammer to bang the gong in ZF for the extra boss...and probably still have it in your bank cuz it was a pain in the ass to get.

    only 1 of the things the OP said were in endgame. Everything else was and could easily be discovered by a lower level person, and even experience them.

    Looks like we have one person here who didnt play in vanilla!!!

    You played vanilla if you yelled "Loot the dog!" more than one time in every Molten Core run.

    Something unique to vanilla wow that never used after ? Farm mobs with detect invisibility at Duskwood to get shards for raiding as warlock, and "dream" of having an alt (I don't remember more than 5people who actually had 2 lvl60 characters, and their alts were greenies crap gear users who only exist for mining/herbing),
    The beginning of wisdom is the statement 'I do not know.' The person who cannot make that statement is one who will never learn anything. And I have prided myself on my ability to learn

    You know someone who played Vanilla if:

    - He knows how to get a 2.0 attack speed dagger as a rogue. (soloing Barman Shanker, good old times - mage killer)
    - He knows what bubble hearth means.
    - If he one shoted people with WF + Arcanite Reaper. (good times when horde didn't have pallies)
    - If he knows what vodoo piles did in Zul Gurub
    - If he knows what is the special effect of IRON FOE (the epic mace from BRD) - Tip: you speak dwarvish, even if you were horde
    - If he knows what Jindo used to scream everytime Mandokir killed a player.
    - If he knows that in the cockpit of the schredders in Stonetallon has a Kerrigan's photo.
    - If you asked for help to get a WW axe
    - If you asked for help to do DM west for your epic dreadsteed
    - If you know ho is the false warchief
    - If you know how to start the quest for Quel Serrar. FKn best sword model of all times.
    - If you crafted 2.800 heavy runecloth bandages to grind rep to get the undead horse (i did this, omg) during AQ opening
    - If you had a char named Kazaakspy, Azuregospy, Ashenspy, Hinterspy, Feralaspy and Duskspy.

    I can keep going....

    Wall climbing!!! I miss going behind the bases in WSG, or climbing the mountain side and dropping the flag up there, even before the patch where the flag resets if not held for sometime... Those 17 hour BG's before a GM comes in and resets everything. In all honesty, the game sucks compared to what it used to be.

    Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.

    A lot of this Vanilla stuff was still around in BC. Most people seem to be forgetting that. But I guess that's why BC was the best expansion, eh?

    Well, TBC removed a lot of the stuff people listed. Such as:

    1) Needing groups for group quests
    2) Elite mobs in the world, especially in front of dungeons (related to #1)
    3) Pally and Lock mounts being challenging

    etc..... Yeah, they were there at the beginning of TBC, but not for much longer.

    While the entrance to BWL has always been in UBRS, the patch that capped it at 15 was made well before BWL was implemented; the orb has been there as long as the raid has. The UBRS portal, however, could be used without having completed the attunement quest.

    A fair few of these I did after Vanilla...

    The one thing I still have nightmares about is being a Night Elf and ending up in Ironforge because I had just learned about boats and just picked up Aspect of the Cheetah... the horrors I faced... *shudder*

    You haven't played Vanilla unless you've spent a week straight in the same AV xD
    Don't expect others to be happy with you if you aren't happy with yourself.

    The battleground Marks of Honor.
    AV lasting hours, even days. And actually summoning the boss.
    Farming gold being a pain in the arse.
    Wallclimbing IF auction house (or airport)
