You played Vanilla if... Part 2

Since the first thread reached max posts allowed...

Being able to afford riding because you made gold with the UBRS key.

Runs to Rend 500 times to finally have Felstriker drop only to be ninja'd by a hunter.

You remember running to a battleground entrance.

You remember running to AV's battleground instance and still having the same AV going on.

Innverate was the final Resto Druid talent, and Hurricane was the final Balance one.

Rebirth was 30 minutes.

(For those of you who were in the 0.6 beta):

Your chat logs were locked into place.

Druids just became available. Hunters were still unavailable

The game was playable on Windows 98 SE.

The rest system allowed you to go under 100% experience gains, down to 25%

The day I got my Earthshaker in Molten Core was the day that EVERYBODY wanted me to join their PvP group.

I also remember having a LOT of difficulty getting into raids as a fury warrior, because back then, warriors were under LOTS of pressure to be prot.

I also remember seeing lots of PvP videos.

I miss PvP videos...

Less useful bag space on my Hunter
1 bag slot was for ammo
1 bag slot was for pet food
1 bag slot was for mats i picked up on the way to make more ammo

Getting a purple on my priest (i think it was staff of jordan) and then not rolling on anything else in that instance run because I didnt want to seem too greedy

Getting enough gold for my first mount three levels after I could get my first mount.

Sea lion form wasnt just given. You had to do two quests first.The first involved swiming around the lake in moonglade looking for a trinket before a timer expired. The second involved traveling to westfall(a nice quick trip from darn to menthil harbor - walk to ironforge - take the tram to sw and walk to westfall (picking up the fp's on the way because they were not gimmies back then)). Once you reach the coast of westfall, you needed to look for the second half of the trinket that was off the coast in water that was deep enough that you pretty much had little time to explore.

All the hours I wasted making the slog from Menethil to Ironforge...

You knew that feign death would actually kill you

anything grey was a dhk

tauren mill raids where great until some idiot killed a quest giver and every pvper instantly dropped group for fear of there weeks farming would be lost.

I remember naxx being the hardest raid ever, harder then any other raid that got released after that. Also the bugs, before 1.0.5ish warlocks feared people under the map, exploited that in battlegrounds, and sometimes people would just randomly fall under the map on their own too.

Oh those where the days!

Countless hours spent trying to clear MC on school nights, only to repeatedly wipe on Baron Geddon at 4 in the morning.
