    Wrath I think.

    They stopped making class mount quests necessary in BC, but you could still do them for giggles for awhile after that.
    It is 4 of the old world bosses

    Emeriss/Lethon/Ysondre/Taerar
    In addition to those we also had Azuregos and Kazzak/Kruul.

    Trying to think of other things....was there any backpack item or stupid one off thing that was removed when BC hit? Or was only around for a small amount of time in vanilla? Things that I may be missing could be holiday event items....not sure what else

    I don't believe this is true. The Feats of Strength are still indicative of having played before BC, though.

    I got Knight title, went into the Champion Hall or w/e it's called, and went "Oh. This is kinda more plain than I expected" and walked out never to grind ranks again because I didn't care for the PvP set.

    Pretty sure I was a Sergeant just because that was easy to maintain with random BGs at the time of the change =P

    Oh... I never heard them called that, especially considering they weren't drake models, they were dragon models. I always heard them referred to as the "Dragons of Nightmare," but maybe my server wasn't up on popular slang?

    Taerar was my favorite.

    They weren't removed until Cataclysm, though, unless I've gone completely mad.

    Though you could have traded the original epic mounts in for the new armored mounts which a lot of people ended up doing which cost them the achievement.

    It was definitely true, you just must not have deranked fast enough to lose the title (Knight was rank 5 if I remember right, so not so high as to be competitive where you could lose it easily). Ask anyone who had a higher title but lost it before the new pvp system was implemented. It's not just the highest rank you ever earned.

    If you care about telling how old a character is.

    Oldest guy I have left on my account, don't ask me why I deleted stuff when I was younger, I was stupid.

    As for other stuff, only a few things like ash,asteish, the old epic mounts (tauren is only one i can think of), FoS PvP titles, think that is about it anymore.
    White raptors that are not the card game mount as well as the red raptors. For orcs, it was the arctic and red wolves.

    No, you aren't going mad. They were removed with the pre-Cataclysm events.
    when all else fails, read the STICKIES.

    For people saying if you lost your title during 60 you didnt get it back...

    Um hello I got Warlord (rank 13) and quit PvPing. I got deranked all the way down to like Rank 4-5 when they locked out the ranks near the end of vanilla. I have my warlord title now. So yes...it was you got to keep your highest earned title (AFTER they reintroduced the titles)

    I have the Legionnaire title on my mage, that is the only proof I have, unless you count it took me weeks of farming motes in Felwood to get my epic mount lol

    Only things that jumped out were the pre-BC event gear and the original epic mounts....(and that one legendary that accidentally dropped in MC)....What other things could you have which could be from vanilla WoW and only from vanilla WoW?
    here is my proof:
    feat of strength pvp title,
    collector's edition: panda, diablo, mini-zergling
    tabard of the prtector

    I have knight title + tabard of the protector on my warrior, but my warlock is still older character and have absolutely nothing to prove it, lol. But this whole "vanilla player" is fucking hipster shit at it's worst.

    Was there any boss that was around only for vanilla that was removed when BC hit? Just thinking that maybe loot items from them would be unique to vanilla WoW

    When did Kazzak leave Azeroth and head to Outland?

    I have Earthstrike and the entire Symbols of Unending Life set. Regardless, who does care?

    All that PLUS Exalted with the Hydraxian Waterlords, and if you played Vanilla you know that was hard to pull off

    Totally...not focussing on the "vanilla player" rather trying to look at the vanilla item - seeing what unique things there are in the game

    Am I right in saying that you can still get the old vanilla collectors edition pets now...just as long as you buy an unused collectors edition of someone?
