    In Halls of Lightning, on the hallways to the first boss, if you look over the hallways, you can see lines of Iron Vrykul lined up below. Hard to imagine that I ran that place that many times not to notice it until now.

    I remember i logged my Warrior when the TBC talents came out to check them out, and then I actually had the spell "seduce" in my spellbook.
    I had no mana so i couldn't use it

    -A'dal in Shattrath hits for over 100,000 damage and becomes invulnerable at low health.
    It should be noted that this was not implemented until numerous people found out that a Fel Reaver could be kited into Shattrath to fight A'dal.

    Loved this!! I'd forgotten about a lot of this stuff. Was great to read it and reminisce. I didn't see Dishonorable Kills mentioned though. Those were great times. World PvP at its finest.

    Edit:
    "-If you are playing on US servers, you can roll a human on server Moonguard, and walk to Goldshire Inn. Warning: What is seen cannot be unseen."

    I should have heeded the warning...

    Btw thanks for sharing all this, I started the game with the Open beta, it was so... different from other MMOs that I bought the game right at the release!

    Oh and a little one... Wow was released in EU on February 11 2005, four months after US So even tough I've played the game since the beginning in EU, there are some things mentioned by the OP that I didn't experienced, probably due to being fixed in those four months. Still there were a lot of funny things indeed... Well funny retroactively because those were just TEDIOUS at the time, but nostalgia has quite an impact on the mind

    GOD THOSE WARLOCKS WITH 30 SECONDS FEAR
    GOD THOSE SHAMANS ONE-SHOTTING ME WITH ONE WINDFURY (enh shamans were pretty rare in fact, but as a mage I avoided them like the PLAGUE in BGs indeed... Well when BGs were implemented at least, the first was Alterac (40vs40 at the time) and guess how long the queue was on a highly populated server... TWO HOURS. YEAH REALLY.)
    And there were 1h+ queue to actually ENTER a server in the EU (wouldn't know about US), and for like two months, until new servers were added. Good thing the game was and still is that awesome otherwise it would have been a flop with those queue times!
    GOD THOSE awesome crits with patch 2.0 as a mage, with the new talent trees xD Two arcane/fire mage could easily kill one big geared warrior tank holding the flag with two healer at his side, in mere seconds!
    GOD THOSE ENDLESS GRINDS TO LEVEL A FACTION TO EXALTED FOR ONLY ONE ITEM! Augghhhh.

    Oh and another one... Frost/arcane was the only real raiding spec when you only raided MC (and back then you had to have 40 persons almost fully geared with MC loot to begin BWL, which was AWFULLY SLOW with 2-3 loots per boss), because a LOT of mobs were simply IMMUNE to fire... And some even to poison and bleeding like the rock elementals. And you HAD to spec 5 pts into imp. arcane explosion to make it instant and be able to AOE efficiently

    Good TEDIOUS times indeed Nostalgia is great, but if you don't realize that the game is 10 times better now, well you're just a guy blinded by that very nostalgia.

    (sorry for approximative English)
    Thats why i played through vanilla nearly everyday and I don't now in Wrath, just making a point.

    I've been reading and keeping up with this thread for a while, so just to nip the Conspiracy Theorists in the butt. The Spirit Healer loop actually says, "It is not yet your time. I shall aid your journey back to the realm of the living... for a price." Not to mention, holy priests turn into the spirit healer form and the tooltip reads "You have become more powerful than anyone can possibly imagine. " If a spirit healer is that powerful, she need not have to talk to you about your money just to get it.

    I still remember when we were doing BWL there were rumours that some guild was making a working threat meter, which at the time was considered kind of impossible, because how could anybody really know how much threat you had in comparison to another player. In the end I think there was some addon floating around, but in reality it didn't really work and the estimates given by it were really rough and not even close to 100% reliable. The consensus seemed to be that if there was a working threat meter that would make the job of dps way too easy, because the hard part of their job was doing as much damage as possible while not overaggroing. Therefore knowing how much threat you had compared to the tank would make it completely easymode so really it would be like cheating. Boy, have things changed.

This was removed from the game, because it was a reference to smoking weed.

    The Toyes wrote the song.

    "Smoke Two Joints" is a song originally written by The Toyes, who performed it in traditional Reggae style and released it in 1982.

    In Gundrak if you look over the side of the balcony at the Elemental boss you can see a giant tail. No idea what it is

    Oooh yes I forgot to mention that!

    At the begging of the honor system (patch 1.4), it was very hard to get to Rank 14 to get the best gear available at the time, but those with extra time in their hands that did it were literally wrecking balls (see videos of Maydie (okay res) or Dominion (low res) for epic overpowered vanilla ownage, still got HQ versions of them on an old hard drive).

    Anyyywaaay the thing I wanted to mention is that you actually LOST honor if you killed a grey-level player OR a "civilan" NPC! It was rumored (by Blizzard) that if you did tons of "Dishonorable" kills, you would be banned from your own factions, be labeled "Outlaw", the friendly city guards would attack you, you wouldn't be able to take quests or buy stuff, etc. Then a crazy guy with lots of time actually grinded tons of Dishonorable kills to see if that was true, and made a vid of it (I bet you still can find it). A then... Nothing. Other than sinking him to the depths of the honor system, there was no Outlaw rank :P

    I don't know if it has been mentioned or not, I'm not going through all 51 pages.

    But, Stormwind isn't actually on the ground. The entire city is floating about 30 feet above the actual ground. There are several ways to gain entrance to the area below Stormwind. Underneath, there is crappy textured ground, and several holes in the floor. If you jump into the biggest, you will fall into the top of the Mage Tower :S

    Also, it is completey possible to run from this area to Ironforge, along the mountains that seperate the zones. Along the way you may come across several "inaccesible" places, such as a camp that is seen on the Gnome starting sequence. (In fact, if you leave your main toon there, and have a friend roll a Gnome, they will actually see your char in the entrance video.)



    Another one,

    In the game files, there is a secret prison. It is simply a big white room, with a white chair in the middle. It is totally innaccessible in retail, and I wonder why it is there, maybe GM's teleport very naughty players there for interview?

    Orgrimmar is also floating above the ground

    And the white untextured room is located on GM island.
