    Warrior defensive stance's damage reduction used to apply to fall damage. Since max fall damage was 100% of HP warriors could fall from any distance without dying, provided they jumped with full life. I remember climbing to Hyjal during vanilla (it was empty at the time and was not supposed to be visited by players) and jumping to Felwood from there. The fall lasted like half a minute and I survived thanks to defensive stance.

    IIRC You needed Soulshards to summon your pets as well, as a Warlock.

    Heroism/Bloodlust used to only be group wide and didn't give exhaustion but had a 15 minute cooldown. This lead guild leaders to shaman stack their groups on easy fights to pad the meters.

    Also Draenei's passive used to give a group wide 1% hit (spell or physical depending on what class you were in TBC) which allowed for draenei stacking to relieve the need for hit so you could gem other stats. Later changed to 1% hit when spell hit and hit were merged and then at the end of WotLK was changed to a personal buff.

    To be even more precise, 10/15/08 is when the earliest achievements date back to (that I've ever seen), might differ by one day in the Americas, but someone will have to confirm/deny that since I think they get their updates Tuesdays.

    The only one I can remember from when I first started playing in TBC was that "class-quests" still existed; totems, pets, animal forms, poisons (I believe, but one quest to just unlock the ability to craft poisons), and I think that's it.

    That's good information and it is in detail, but there is something interesting that I can't find. Could you give me something about blacksmithing level guide? I want to level up in blacksmithing quickly.

    Dives[/URL] from the server Boulderfist EU was the leader of the guild <Wipe Club>. He was the one who delivered the speech in “Onyxia wipe animation” video, of which some parts became instant classics, such as “more dots!”, “many whelps, handle it!”, “minus 50 dkp!” etc. There are also 3 more known recordings of him, of a wipe on MC trash, Ragnaros, and Razorgore.
    This had me lmao.....thanks for this.

    For those who are unfamiliar with it, it is NSFW, but I would have loved to raid with this guy.

    You used to have to click 3-5 times on a node before mining everything out of it.

    Yay...

    -Hippogryphs in Azshara used to drop more money than any other mob in the game, so it was usually farmed by bots 24/7.

    So that's why that gold farmer was doing it. He was nice enough to trade me the feathers he got while I was farming them for my blue leather shoulders.

    -There is no WoW in Japan at all.

    There was (is?) a Japanese guild, though. Apparently they had to use a mod to get language support for chat.

    I definitely don't remember the Draenei hit racial stacking. You could only benefit from one.

    The runes that you had to extinguish in Molten Core to summon Ragnaros, were unique to each boss and denoted the first letter of the bosses name. Upon extinguishing them they would light up inside the roof of the cavern Ragnaros is summoned into.

    The guild STARS used a tactic in ToC where they would fill the rest of the 25 man raid with 15 warlocks, and apply soulstones to the raid before each encounter. (they would run outside and back in)

    It sounds like they planned some kind of AQ event with Outland, possible that the old Vanilla Hellfire was meant for that, and that they planned to turn that into some kind of elite area with quests or world bosses.
    Apparently there was going to be a long quest for warlocks, similar to the Scepter of the Shifting Sands line, and it would lead to you opening the Dark Portal and access to the original "Outland" zone (you can still see it on youtube). The Dark Portal opens event and the Highlord Kruul invasions from the TBC intro were supposed to be the event for the questline.

    I believe the same was planned for those 4 Emerald Dream portals.

    Paragon did it first, for the world first kill.

    Yeah, my raid leader in BC used to actually rotate shamans between groups so the same group could get Heroism multiple times (we had one melee group that was typically the highest on damage output). We also used to have a dude with a Paladin alt log to his alt, give everyone in the raid a buff, then switch back to his main (the buff would stay on as long as his paladin was offline but still in the group). Then we'd just stick his offline paladin in group 8 or something.

    You might still be able to do that offline buffer thing, but I haven't played, much less raided seriously in a long time, so I dunno.

    Heroism was originally going to be a Paladin spell, to give Alliance players access to 'Bloodlust'. But instead they just gave Shaman to the Alliance, and let them have it.

    Look closely next time you use it and you can still see the Paladin-esque visuals.

    Here are some bugs that entertained me for a while before they got 'fixed'.

    Around Wrath(?), you were able to dance while mounted. It would not show any of the lower-body animations, only the top-half. Meaning that your male blood elf would turn to look at you while mounted, yet the legs are still 'forward'. Perhaps it did the lower body animations but didn't show them, yet keeping you 'standing in place', so as to not move. Some creepy animations from this, yet some being funny, like male orc.

    Around Wrath(?), you were able to unsheath your weapons while dancing. Meaning that you could dance with your weapons out, sheathing and unsheathing at will. Makes a male undead look like he's skinning himself (like with daggers). Some funny weapon dances.

    Sometime in Cata, you were able to spam your mount's animation, sound and all. I annoyed my raid leader by picking the most annoying of mount sounds, a hawkstrider and the sea turtle (it was during the wait-before-pull period though). So spamming the SCREEEEE sounds, as well as the BOINGI sound from the turtle.
    ...If that chest gives you nothing but white shields, then you can blame Schrödinger and his zombie cat. ~Tannis, Borderlands 2

    ...Never mind that shit! Here comes Mongo! ~ If you didn't know that was from Blazing Saddles, you are sad and I have no intention of speaking with you.

    You still can I believe? I remember even back in WOTLK we would get on our turtles or mammoths were the main ones due to the noise, tap space and then an arrow key and repeat, could do it pretty fast. And in a large raid with everyone on mammoths doing that... oh god. Not forgetting the mammoth trains in Dalaran.
