    But my view might be tainted by being the GM of a guild that was pushing these raids in a race to be server first. Which meant something back then. At least for being able to recruit.

    But yea ... feeding the pet to keep it happy drove many a Hunter insane

    Now you've conjured the image of a quest "thin the population of MMO posters, bring me brains as proof" and after fifty kills and only two drops you think "well... actually expected."

    I used to rationalise that when a heart or brain didn't drop it was because I'd obliterated it with a devastating blow and it was my fault for being such a bad ass lvl 14 prot warrior in mostly grey items.

    Hard to tell, there is a neverending stream of people holding this reasoning quite seriously.

    i didn't like the class balance in vanilla; i think rogues should be able to take on at least three players in pvp. that seems balanced in pvp play. with more kills solo.

    I think that's what the 4 dots at the end were indicating

    This. when i saw "broken antlers" instead of "pristine antlers" the quest required, i had the idea i hit the mob to hard, so i broke the antlers.

    rpg immersion at its best.

    Organizing 40 people ain't hard.

    I was GM on several private projects, and with good class leaders it's quite easy and simple if people follow the rules and doing what they are told.

    Bring forth Classic already!
    From all things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

    When people say lack of quest, does that mean you were too lazy to travel to another continent's zone at the appropriate level? Y'all are caught up with min maxing and it shows
    Whether the world's greatest gnats, or the world's greats heroes, you're still only mortal!

    Horrible spec balance
    No QOL changes (mounts in bags, obnoctious reagents, ect.. )

    Respec costs. I was pretty much forced to play Disc/Holy for 9 months until whatever patch hit the server and let me reset talents for free. Made it impossible for healers to farm stuff easily on their own, or just like, you know, play the game in a different way.

    Pure lies, gear was far more important than talents. You just needed to collect a set of +damage gear instead of +healing gear and you could farm anything arguably more efficiently than pure dps specs.

    Pugs
    People were such morons with no idea how to play WoW back in the days
    Lack of gold

    ____

    I loved the game though. Still do.
    Around 5 million visitors of the mmo-champion forums don't actually play WoW themselves.
