    What colour were shaman pre BC

    Yesterday, I had an argument with a friend of mine about the class color of the Shaman pre BC. I'm like 100% sure that they weren't blue, but rather pink like the Paladin.
    Unfortunately I couldn't find any official enough source to convince my friend. I even checked the official patch note from patch 2.01 , but there isn't anything on there about the change.
    Does anyone of you guys have old screenshots from back then, or other proof that would support my case?

    I'm pretty sure the classes didn't used to have colors at all. They just all appeared as blue dots on the minimap. And raids didn't used to have the entire raid listed, either; you were only able to see people in your actual party at the side of the screen.

    The shaman class colors pre BC was pink like pallies, since shaman and pallies were exclusive to their factions, Pallies for Allies, and Shaman for Horde, they shared a color. It was changed in BC to a light greenish blue and eventually it settled on the shaman class colors we know today.

    heh, yea. i saw Benediction there and was instantly jelous...

    i say a lot of things.
    some of them may be sarcastic, rude, or insulting.
    but if you read carefully, i dont aim to insult people, and very rarely trolling ~ its my honest opinion. if you think im talking about you, go get some coffee and read it again later.
    have a nice day.

    You didn't get dishonorable kills from players, you got them from killing quest givers and other "civilian" tagged npcs.

    OMG Karen, you can't just ask a Shaman what color he is!
    It's LeviOsa, not LeviosAR!
