    You couldn't go from sitting (eating/drinking) to casting. Same thing while mounted.
    Mage had to talent evocation.
    Mages had to put 3 points in arcane explosion to make it instant (1.5sec cast).
    PoM Pyro.
    Windfury proccing off itself.
    Bubble heart.
    10 man instances.
    Flight paths didn't link, so you had to choose the next flight path every time you landed.
    Pots had a 3mins cooldown but could be used repeatedly during an encounter.
    Resil used to reduce the chance you were crit, it wasn't changed to damage reduction until Wotlk.
    PvP trinkets didn't all work the same, they were class specific.
    Speaking of which, class specific items. And class specific quests.

    I remember Dishonorable kills.

    Ratchet didn't have a flight path.

    Hunters had to do a quest to get their level ten pets, then once they tamed one, they couldn't use it until they ran to their capitol city to train the proper spell for feeding and healing it.

    You had to tame wild beasts to learn the abilities you wanted your pet to know. This included upgrading their current abilities Bite(3) to Bite(4). Some wild beasts were better than others (The Rake, Broken Tooth), and King Bangalash was desireable because he was the only creature with that one talent that gave him haste. I can't remember what it's called anymore, but it wasn't a learnable ability. If you untrained him, he couldn't get it back.

    The gorilla quest in STV was a pain unless you had help. So was the quest in Silithus where you had to kill the elite scorpid and his two cronies. Pretty much any elite was a pain without a group.

    Azuregos' shouts had a huge range and could be seen in Orgrimmar.

    The Druid level ten quest to get bear form. All that running around! I don't know how many times I died from traveling, and then to the elite sharks that swam in the waters along the coast.

    The game is better now.

    No one mentioned that only Dwarf priests were able to cast Fear Wards in Vanilla (and later on Draenei too in TBC), Night Elf priests had Starshards and Elune's Grace and so on..

    If the boss had a fear mechanic the only class that could tank it was a warrior unless you had several dwarf priests.

    Very fond memories of getting the Rohk'delar and when 2.0 hit ... hunters in pvp made warriors now look like lambs ... lol and when you would "cast" an aimed shot from shadowmeld

    When 2000 dps was thought very very good.

    Having to press shield block every 6 sec or a grisly death would likely follow.

    12 hrs AV battles being considered short ....
    Science has made us gods even before we are worthy of being men: Jean Rostand. Yeah, Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair colour!.
    Classic: "The tank is the driver, the healer is the fuel, and the DPS are the kids sitting in the back seat screaming and asking if they're there yet."
    Irony >> "do they even realize that having a state religion IS THE REASON WE LEFT BRITTEN? god these people are idiots"

    Used to have to carry four totems around with me, taking up bag space. The horror.

    Doing the Whirlwind Axe quest as a noob warrior.
    Dreadsteed Quest as a warlock.
    Stealth (as for hiding in the forest) your way to goddamn SM , being so much afraid that a lvl 60 will kick the shit out of your poor ass.
    Run with your stupid rare mount horse in EPL when you are already scared to death, then encounter Nathanos with his fucking dogs.
    JizzInPants when you bought your first epic mount.
    Walk near a Rank14 Grand Marshal paladin, and just think he is a god.
    Opening of AQ gates.

    When time travel will be a valid option In the future, Going back to those times will be the first thing ill do.

    HoR runs were heavily dependant on quality and class of tank, especially before the nerf that reduced RNG on the spawns (getting 3 mages on the 5 adds wave was pretty much GG in PUG). Honestly, it was easier for me to tank it with barely epic warrior than with full TotC geared DK..

    I remember when you loved a class so much esp Druids you actually had a seperate toon for each spec lol

    Oh and being invited to a raid as druid just for ur brez and expected to throw heals irregardless of your spec (i was a Bal druid in vanilla)

    Druid code and helping lowbies with the westfall part of the swim form quest and the posioned deer quest in darkshore lol

    Actually seeing another Boomkin in a 40man raid was rare, saw 2 plus me in a MC run once...

    I remember giving loads and loads of Runecloth to Ironforge and Darnassus to reach exalted. Then, I could learn Tiger riding and Ram riding. Being a human, I couldn't learn Mechastrider riding though...

    Getting all them Paladins to coordinate for buffs (with Pallypower I believe?) and asking them to buff my pet ;D;D Good times.

    Thank god buffs dont require reagents anymore. Lots of stuff that brings back great nostalgic memories, but at the same time I dont miss most of it.

    Yes. What I meant was when TBC was released and all you did to 'top meters' was get 2 spell power trinkets, pop them, then stack lifebloom on the tanks and they'd keep that original spellpower value, so you'd just keep them up all fight; negating the use of Rejuv.

    Hence.... "What is this rejuv"

    Also... if it hasn't already been mentioned:

    Honour lag..... for us Oceanic players it'd come right in the middle of raid time....

    Anyone remember that level 40 and 60 mounts could be bought and traded, and your rep with Org or whatever race gave discounts? I would spam chat to get a 60 to buy me a mount when I got up the money, since it was cheaper to pay them for the mount to buy, than to have to save up that much more to buy it with your own rep. And at one time, mounts were hella expensive, and the training was cheap, then they switched it. I had bought a mount before I could ride it, and it cost me a lot, then with the change, I couldn't afford the training. Good times.

    LOL I remember this. Not from vanilla, TBC or wotlk. But from cataclysm. I was lucky to get the barman shanker at the VERY last day of brewfest. Was doing 18k-20k crits.

    Never argue with and idiot. They bring you down to their level, and then beat you with experience.
