    Your skill is what is important, but the amount of time you spend mastering something isn't something to take for granted either. Proof you've been doing anything for any large amount of time is a brilliant addition to any application.

    And besides, there's no reason to pick on someone because of how they played eight years ago. The game was new, and you're looking at it through the lens of almost a decade of experience with the game. Whether we want to admit it or not, many of us were not very good then and probably all of us -- even the better classic players -- had laughable skills then compared to what we have now.

    This was removed in beta and never went live.
    All of this is true. I look back at videos and think back to how I healed during Vanilla/Tbc/Wrath and it's laughable. And yup to the plainstriding too! O.o

    Unless you didn't care to grind PVP titles. I think my rogue I played back then is a Master Sergeant? I dunno - I didn't do the Grand Marshal grind like a lot of my friends did, I just raided.

    Like most have said, it doesn't matter. I have the physical box with the receipt in it still, lol. But I don't have the account from vanilla, or any of the titles. With that said I would not be willing to put any effort at all into proving to some anon on the internet that I played vanilla. I don't care if they believe me or not, its meaningless.

    Also, vanilla titles aren't proof of anything. They just prove that you have an account that was played in vanilla. It doesn't mean you played vanilla. Account trading back in vanilla/bc was rampant, when accounts were worth a ton and there was no logins.

    Only things that jumped out were the pre-BC event gear and the original epic mounts....(and that one legendary that accidentally dropped in MC)....What other things could you have which could be from vanilla WoW and only from vanilla WoW?
    Anything from Zul'Gurub comes to mind.

    Only one person ever got the legendary necklace from MC.

    Somewhere between here and the sick, twisted world in my head.
    Well an account that have been made and is from back then might also prove it.

    Isn't that the dark portal event? A few people have mentioned that and mainly the tabard acquired from the event.....If you're thinking of something different would love to hear which one it is
    I could have sworn it was removed in BC, however seeing you're the 2nd person hitting the nail on it I might have been wrong.

    Anyone else remeber fishing for squid off azshara but you could only fish them in the winter... and then in the summer it hcanged to like summer bass or soemthing? Don't remeber them adding that after vanilla seasonal fish!

    Another way to know if some one is from vanilla look at there youtube chanel or photobucket, imagedup wtv they use and look at old pictures / vids... if they got some like this then they were from vanilla!

    If you don't knwo what this is...chances are... not vanilla! Check out those OG hunter marks!

    O and guilty for autoattack as #1 keybind...then again back then I added skills as I got them and CLICKED everything... hell keyboard turnd with arrows, etc etc addons and keybinding were only something I started to do when I rolled my second toon the mage... before that I was alwasy laughing at addon users since each patch = entire UI broken for days... we didn't have auto updates days before on curse back then!

    Winter squid! Grilled Squid was my raid food in classic! I would fish it in Feralas.

    I don't remember what the summer fish was or where you could catch it.

    I think all the seasonal fish are still seasonal (same with the night/day ones), just no one cares about them anymore.

    I've still got the same character name but nobody with my characters name shows on my old server. I did race change mid wotlk from nelf to draenei but I had the search set to look for chars with my name of any race.

    no way of knowing the player behind the account was only that the account was.

    now i remember funny stories like the world first thunder fury went to a druid that could not even use it but the was with the BWL patch
    but for account showing only 3 are pvp FOS the BC event tabard and OG mount FOS all other could be gotten in bc too.

    if you got one of played Vanilla.

    My idiotic bashing of this poor guy hurt your feelings as well? You must be just like him back then huh?

    Seriously binding auto-attack as 1 from level 1 to raiding? Doesn't matter how noob you are you shouldn't have that? I took auto attack out since level one playing on my rogue?

    How can you even 'enjoy' playing when you have auto attack keybinded as 1 and have your keys binded all the way to 0? click click click click click? How do you enjoy playing the game by torturing your mouse?

    Please amaze me with some explanation, just because people like you and Proteen are ultra noobs back in vanilla doesn't make the entire world the same.
