    Actually it was. The highest rank I ever earned was Blood Guard, I wasn't a blood guard when 2.0 came around and that's the FoS/title I got. Do you think that there were that many people who kept rank 14 when it rolled around? No, because it was nearly impossible and once people had their gear they stopped grinding so much, but yes they got to keep their titles after 2.0. That's exactly how it worked.

    I have a pvp rank 10 (Champion) and I guess if I wanted I can prove it by the payment slip that is in the CE I bought? And ofc by Blizzard's log and payment files. Possibly it even states when my acc was created? That said...why would I want to prove it to some random strangers. People that matter to me know I played from day 1....

    Higher rank doesn't mean anything when it comes to playtime. Some people don't like PVP.

    It's funny that half of the people think this thread was created to try to arrogantly prove a point to someone else...I'm thinking the assumption reflects how people may be feeling about their game at the moment and the community

    The other half are treating it in the spirit it was intended...in that with looking at all the changes that have happened over the last 8 years what unique things are there left in the game?

    Apart from the obvious out of game proof (that apparently may or may not be proof) I think it's been narrowed down to:
    - the epic vanilla mounts that were removed achieve FoS
    - PvP title achieve FoS
    - Anything from the opening of the Dark Portal event...tabard/gear etc
    - Talisman of the Binding Shard
    Anything else?

    How do you prove that you got those? All that proves is that account was active then not you. I know a few ppl playing accounts they bought or were given it cant be that uncommon with a 8 year old game.

    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.
    Mine was apparently first seen at lv 43 on May 30th in 2005. Crazy...I spend 3 months to just get there o_O IDD - my played to lv 60 was 17 days.

    What this wise moderator said. Couldn't care less if you playe in vanilla or not. I know quite a few people who are proud of themselves thinking they are hotshots cause they played back then when in reality they feel like they started two months ago.

    Not the fact that you own them but the fact you know what they were used for. The twilight cultist sets in silithus

    Oh also have the 4 piece pally set from the scourge event thats gotta be worth something.

    Getting rank 13/14 required playing 18-22 hours a day for 2.5-3.5 months. Pretty sure that constitutes as higher rank contributing to playtime.

    Good old summoning gear so you don't get smited by the angry elementals that appear ;-)
    I think they were the things that I was farming so I missed out on getting all the juicy pre BC event gear - I wished I had that tabard now....Altho come to think about it, I wouldn't have it anyway since I got rid of my original account ages ago

    Wauw, I can't believe that NO ONE has actually mentioned items from the old undead invasion event (pre Naxx event). At that time 'everyone' did those quests, so most would have received such items at one point.
    I still have the Set of Undead Cleansing in my bank.

    It is true that the same event was copied in preparation for Wrath, but that was with epic lvl 70 gear, while the lvl 60 were blue. These two different sets don't have the same look (and names either, I think), so they should be distinguishable. I can't honestly remember if there were items for every armor class (though that would seem logical). Mine is cloth; I'm a mage.

    Still play with the same people you did in Vanilla...
