    R14 took a lot more effort and time commitment then 2.4k currently does.

    you can't get the old armor to transmog for the same reason you can no longer get 'champion of he naruu' or season specific gladiator drakes, because you didn't play when it was current and you didn't earn it.

    I agree: it's something that Blizzard actually did right for once.

    I'm sorry but, it's not the same. Not even close.

    The Rank 14 grind in vanilla required more then simply time. You think the time required is a few days? No. Try a few months minimum. There was also a "list" of field marshals who were "queued up", technically, and that meant that just because you had enough for that week you weren't getting GM and you had to do the same thing over and over again (sometimes all day, 7 days a week) in order to remain ELIGIBLE for a rank 14 spot. Someone said it took sacrifice, a rather large understatement.

    So no offense, but there's a reason why the level 60 pvp stuff was made to be only for those who participated at a high enough level in vanilla. It wasn't a matter of sitting afk in AV and getting GM.

    No one is trying to undermine what it takes to reach 2400, at least im not, but some of you simply have no idea whatsoever what it really took to reach GM in vanilla.

    I was a military man at the time, due to deployments and exercises I was only able to hit rank 10 in my GM group (I was actually 1% away from rank 11 before I had to go on a two week exercise so I lost it) I was one of those dedicated enough to show up and through many sleepless nights help 4 people achieve grand marshal. Believe me, their achievement were just as much yours as it was theirs back then and they thanked each person every single day for many months after.

    You can see why they made that gear a special case. At least I hope so.

    I reached R13 in vanilla and can't even tranmorg my alts or have the title on them. Go figure.

    I'm not arguing where the rank requirement should be for the replica gear (since it's Blizzard's call), but how in the world is a pre-BC FoS/title not a sign of being a veteran?

    I, too, only enjoy things when most other people are excluded from them.

    That's why eating has gotten so boring

    This is something Blizzard did right, especially when almost everyone and their grandma is now a HWL / GM due to the exploits.

    That sucks, man. As I said in an earlier post, I am only a measly Sergeant on my Warrior, but I haven't played that character outside of an occasional alt since 2.3. I'd love to be able to throw my title on my new characters. It's about the best veteran badge I have as an older player

    Quite possibly the dumbest thing I've ever read on these forums. People that made rank 14 literally had to have someone play their character 24/7 (not exaggerating) on certain realms, having friends in other time zones help them by playing their account while they slept etc. Now all you have to do is get in right with the core group of decent players on a realm and you can get it in a few wins, or hell, just go to some website that sells rating/titles. Sounds a lot harder than vanilla to me.

    Why are you putting so much emphasis on the H?
