    You know a player started in Wrath if:

    - They don't know how to cc
    - They don't understand what threat is
    - They think ToC was hard
    - What's a world boss?!$?
    - what's wand specialization
    - Hand of salvation wtf???
    - They believe all healers have unlimited mana
    - They don't remember resistance gear
    - They ask where you got hand of a'dal
    - They think caverns of time is just a place to do culling of strat
    - They don't know what attunements are

    Here comes the fish.

    I started in wrath and I know every single item in your list.

    1/10.

    EDIT: Then again, your posting history says a lot.

    I started in Wrath and know every single one of those things...
    -I cleared all cata heroics the first few days of release (When CC was required)
    -I played enhance shaman in 3.0 where Enhance had a ridiculous high amount of threat, and could really mess up poor tanks without some windshear so i'm informed
    -World bosses still existed in Wotlk from prior content and were easy to farm for aesthetically pleasing gear
    -Wand specialization is irrelevant because it existed then too
    -Hand of Salv was an extremely useful tool on fury warriors after they popped all CDS, used by a paladin
    -Healer's didn't have unlimited mana in all situations, and at end game although it wasn't unlimited it was plenty
    -Resistance gear was a terrible game mechanic (/pally auras)
    -Hand of a'dal was fair enough
    -It's called old raids, discovered that while leveling
    -Attunements still existed for certain areas as well as hardmode requirements (Think of unlocking heroic mode with a LK kill)

    This is a pointless thread

    Weapon Oil? What's that?
    Spell Healing? What's that?
    Quest lines for Pally and Lock mounts?
    Pot Chugging?

    But they did have res gear for the first tier in WotLK. I remember the Frost Res gear that was used in Naxx (WotLK version of course), and some even used it in Ulduar....until they realized it wasn't needed.

    Judging from recent post history, someone here clearly has an axe to grind.

    This seems more like a hate thread aimed at people who started in Wrath.

    Started in Wrath:

    -You aren't going to out threat my warrior or dk nor will I attack targets that aren't yours
    -TOC was easy Ulduar had some nice HMs. T11 Heroics were hard.
    -Kazzak?
    -They took out a lot of specializations: i.e. profession specializations once existed too
    -Idk ask a Pally? Salv is an iconic ability
    -wish my shaman knew had heard that when I started healing
    -Resistance gear still exists, its just a flawed system
    -Hand of A'dal? WAIT! That guy in Shatt had hands? Or it was just a crazy long questline requiring real work.
    -Attuned to what? MC, BWL, Kara?

    People can still learn things. Stereotypes aren't cool when you use them to hate on others.

    -They claim early Cata heroics were as hard as BC ones

    It wasn't even hand of salvation. It was blessing of salvation. In fact, given that Ret didn't have built in threat reduction until, I believe it was 2.4, and due to the nature of their bursty damage/threat from CS/SoC/AA slamming together at the same time, BoSalv was typically a bigger DPS upgrade for Ret than BoMight, simply so they didn't have to throttle their threat as much. It took a SECOND Paladin to give the Ret Might. :P

    Anyway, I think having a poster name like "Oldschoolwow" is a giveaway, as well.
