    Wasn't that pretty far into TBC when that happened? I remember having to run from Exodar to Ironforge on my first Dranei.....and dying a lot on the run. I don't think there was a boat that go you anywhere close.

    AV lasting for a WEEK. fishing for 2-3 hours near horde bass. glitching underneath org or stormwind as horde and yelling idiotic macros. kiting world bosses across continents.

    You know you played vanilla, when you get annoyed at ppl leaving a dungeon cause it takes longer than 30 minutes.. You know you played Vanilla when you get angry, and want to go physical on pricks whining about stuff being too expensive and stuff being too hard.. And last but not least ( my personal one, but guess everyone disagree..) You know you played Vanilla, when you actually miss the long epic quest chains, taking you across the world, making you experience stuff.. And you get upset when you see ppl rushing to max lvl, then complaining about the game being boring... Enjoy the damn journey...

    Classic WoW

    Not sure if told already but:

    You played Classic WoW if you remember using lower level spells for more efficiency.
    You played Classic WoW if you remember the endless wipes and running back to BRM without complaining!
    You played Classic WoW if you remember Arcanite Reaper HOOOOOOOO!!!
    You played Classic WoW if you remember that rogues two-shot all clothies... Ambush > Backstab; NEXT!
    You played Classic WoW if you remember leveling a paladin was auto attack and AFK for 5mins on each mob... Also paladin seals were consumed and ONLY lasted 30secs.
    You played Classic WoW if you remember feeding hunter pets.
    You played Classic WoW if you remember when some spells came from books that were random world drops.
    You played Classic WoW if you remember using Thotbot.com before Wowhead.com came at all.
    You played Classic WoW if you remember when epics WERE EPIC!

    I was in one of the longest AV's ever on Frostwolf (US) horde side. That single AV took 8 days to complete and Horde were victorious! We joined it after waiting SIX hours and never left it once... My friend and brother and I had turns playing the character threw all those 8 days!

    Spirit used to allow Wind Fury to proc more often
    Wind Fury used to be amazing with a 2-hander in battlegrounds.
    CC for players was 30 seconds, not what it is now.
    Warlocks were scary. gnome warlocks with pink hair were the devil incarnate.
    Elixirs used to stack and stack and stack. Not just two types.
    I had a lvl 60 lock w/pink hair lol

    My guild at the time had 2 Atiesh made so we were a little ahead of the curve ;x. Huhu was a lot of fun for sure until you severely outgeared it


    I'm gonna have to call bullshit on the bolded part. Your guild did not have 2 Atieshs' made halfway through AQ40. Hell I can't even remember any guilds having more then 1 completed by the time TBC rolled out.

    I have one on my priest and I was the 2nd to get it.

    Also, you got Atiesh from Naxx not AQ40. The only piece from AQ was off of Oruo

    Most, possibly all it has been many years, dropped in AQ 20.

    k) You remember Azeroth before Battlegrounds, Mauradon, Dire Maul
    l) You fought the 3 Green Drakes, Azeragos, and/or Kazzak
    m) Your Gnomish Death Ray and Shrinking Ray were devastating in PvP
    n) As a Rogue, you could stealth into Orgrimmar/Ironforge and use a Gnomish Mind Control cap to take control of a member of the opposite faction, and have them attack their flight master, for fun
    o) You had a piece of your Tier 0 gear ninja'd, and it upset you
    p) You qued for 2-8 hours for an Alterac Valley, just to spend the next 2-16 hours in the same battle
    q) You knew (for Horde) Peeling the onion was the only way to win AV because of the darn BERSERKER TROLL in the middle of AV
    r) You remember Sithilus as a deadzone
    s) You had no safe town/fp inside Western Plague Lands as Horde (what a terrible run back)
    t) The cave on the shore of Eastern Plague Lands was empty, and Tyrion was a hermit hiding out from the world in his small house
    u) You remember the battle for Darrowshire quest line
    v) Gold was neigh impossible to keep (if you were a raider)
    w) As a Mage you had to make raid food and water, TWO AT A TIME (or warlock shard farming)
    x) ONLY THE CHOSEN could make Hand of Sulfuron/Thunderfury
    y) You damn near crapped your pants when you saw your pvp opponent was in tier 2 shinies (pre AQ)
    z) You had to individually fly between flight masters as there was no Point A and B, there was Point A-Z

    Holy necro, Batman!

    Even as a Vanilla player, I've yet to understand why it is made out to be some badge of honour. Who cares if we played a very buggy version of the game that had many more flaws than today's version of it?

    Rarely updated...

    How to tell if someone played in 'vanilla'? Call him a noob and see how long a speech he gives about being better than you.

    I miss the original AV After waiting hours for a game to start - playing until 2 AM Saturday morning, getting up around 10 AM and joining right back in. Weekend long AV's were a blast, although as alliance we really got shafted with Ivus, Lokholar was significantly more powerful at that time !

    Don't know if this has been mentioned already but: You played vanilla if you own Tabard of the Protector
    Also, You played vanilla if you bought your epic mount and riding skill for 1000g few days before the patch that discounted the cost. (Yup, i did this since i didn't have any clue about patch notes and such back then and also 1000g was a fortune back then.)
    Don't argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
