    Yeah. Humans had desperate prayer, dwarves were op'ly broken with fear ward, night elves had some arcane damage starfall like thing, trolls had a lightning shield but with shadow damage, undead had devouring plague.

    OT: Nothing but caster form till 10, bear form till 20, 0 energy when you shifted, couldn't talk to npcs in form, forms took most of your mana, melee'ing as balance to regain mana.

    The old adage. It takes an army to kill a paladin and an army of paladins to kill anything.
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    You're saying you're old enough to be a medieval man?

    I'm so old I remember being able to play for 12hrs straight with no wife or kids that magically turned that number into 27minutes (on a good day).

    I'm so old I remember telling my son he's too young to play the game.
    He's now a better raider than I am...

    - talent trees
    - druid quests for forms
    - warlock shards as non stackable items
    - hunter arrows/bullets
    - speaking of hunter/warlock: getting first pet/demon at lvl 10
    - in general, lvl 10 was special as you get some iconic skill/ability
    - priest endless wand-ing after going OOM after 2-3 casts
    - OOM itself, anyone remember that?
    - mana breaks in dungeons
    - running till 40, later lowered to 30
    - one spec for life, respec possible at trainer for an exorbitant cost
    - selling all the graey items and amassing 20s from it
    - having 1g total AFTER visiting trainer
    - spells were bought, not auto learned
    - spell ranks (warlock health tap rank 1 to get a buff trick)
    - weapon skills

    and the absolute best:
    - ding! in /1

    I'm so old I remember eating carbon from fissure vents in order to satisfy an evolutionary need.

    ... too much?

    I remember when the lack of QOL features was part of the experience of playing a MMO at the time, and was considered "normal".

    All the tedious aspects of wow were legacy features of Everquest.

    Thankfully, all that crap is long gone.

    The shard grinds. <3

    My memory is a bit hazy (except for remembering how tedious it was), but didn't you also need to get the killing blow with drain soul to get a shard, making it hard for people to assist in the grind?

    I remember when 500g was a lot. And real talent trees where a thing. Terrible drop rates, terrible respawnrates.

    Fond memory in TBC - leveling my BM hunter in Un'Goro crater, chasing a Gnome Warlock with my Troll Hunter on mounts - he gets dismounted when running through puddle, because Gnomes are short and mounts couldn't swim, he proceeds to cast Fear, I press Bestial Wrath - immune to fear, big red kitty shreds him.
    My nickname is "LDEV", not "idev". (both font clarification and ez bait)

    yall im smh @ ur simplified english

    I'm so old I remember when Blizzard actually engaged with the community art creators and there were machinima contests on a regular basis.
