Any frozen in time toons or old screenshots?

Classic Discussion
Hallow's End, 2006, I was about level 25 or so. Waiting for WSG/AB to pop, back when you had to queue at a Capital City, or at the entrance to the BG itself.

This was about three weeks before BC dropped, but after Patch 2.0 was released. Felt so proud to get Stone Guard at level 48. I hit 60 a few days later, and got to AQ20 the day before BC went live.

Poor Dauthi's been neglected, she's my original character. I need to work on her, but Shadow in Legion is SO boring.
This is my rogue that i had in Classic, i stopped playing him shortly after Naxx came out due to a combination of RL stuff going on and being bored of raiding + playing a rogue...

My Warrior during TBC was this guy who i started leveling casually when i stopped playing my rogue and still managed to hit 60 before TBC came out.

...I guess i didnt do a good job of staying away from raiding since i cleared most of the raids in TBC as well on that toon, Classic and TBC both had some charm that WOTLK onwards lost imo. So i really didnt play much past that point except here and there on this character for a month or two when a new expac would come out.

Good grief. What kind of damage did your full t2 rogue do in pvp back then. o-O
I have some pictures i can dig up from another computer I BELIEVE~~!! I need to look.
Im planning to eventually collate my old screenshots into a video but they are nothing interesting. And im lazy ;)
Stopped playing this character shortly after Cataclysm. Earliest thing have 'frozen in time' since every other character in my roster was either played during Cata, or test driven to prepare for Legion.

I was never one to take a bunch of screen shots. Any I did have were surely lost during one rebuild or another. I'll dig around Photobucket later, there's a slim chance I can scrounge up something.

This toon is 'frozen' from late 2005 Vanilla about when the popularity jumped significantly, well before TBC. I rerolled with RL friends on a different sever and never returned. To bad the gear was changed to actually have good stats - I remember things like Ward of the Elements being terrible by today's standards.

Yeah, I had no idea what I was doing.. No enchants. Half Tank/Half DPS(?) gear. The talents got wiped at some point - that would have been an interesting look.

Looks like I did UBRS but nothing beyond - this was typical of Vanilla back then. I would say only 10-15% of players back then had any BOP raid gear back then. In that first year most players would not even make it to 60, getting stuck in the late 40s doldrums or just running out of quests and not wanting to grind it out.

This guy.
Never made it to max in Vanilla, got this guy to 70 in BC.
Actually came back with Classic announcement and a GM was able to find and link my 1st account which he was in to my Bnet. Gm noted I hadn't logged on in 10+ years, he still has a quiver and bags full of arrows.


How did you do this? You contacted a GM in Game (retail?) and they found the old account?
A lot of these look like a late PS1 era game, crazy how far graphics have come up in 13+ years.
Hey late to the party, but this is one of my favorite Vanilla screencaps. Had to convert it from stupid TGA to post to Imgur, but it's from a time when I jumped into Caverns of Time pre-BC. I was the guild main tank at the time, although our OT was honestly a better player than I was.

Mavlov, the mage I was with, was a good friend from freshman year dorms at CU. He lived 2 rooms down in my hall and he transferred servers to join my guild. At the time most guilds running BWL on my server used hunters and the tanks for kiting on Razor, but we used frostmages and the tanks. I remember him saying kiting that fight was one of the funnest things he had done in WoW. I always liked the pic with us in front of that awesome background. My potato of a comp had the graphic card bug where my Thunderfury was always black but it fit for this pic.
Actually I have one more to share. I just about spit my drink when I saw it again. I had totally forgotten about this moment. If i recall correctly, we were just starting our BWL raid when for whatever reason ALL of the BRM raid instances crashed. Half of our raid ended up falling and dying in a massive column below the ground in Stonetalon Mountains, the other half ended up below the ground dead in Hillsbrad.

It was horde and alliance, and we all had to spirit rez at the GY. multiple raids worth of T1/T2 chars all with rez sickness fighting at the GY in the middle of Stonetallon. No one could kill anyone since we all had the debuff. For whatever reason, the TF proc seemed to still be doing 100% damage though and I was able to spam hamsting with a windfury to eventually kill the enemy healers. It took us hours to get back inside the raid but the memory is worth more than the loot was.
This character hasn't been active sense Wrath of the Lich King. Someone took a screenshot of my warrior doing Scarlet Monastery during Vanilla, oh boy was my gear ugly looking, wish i had it. Also had a screenshot of me doing the AQ40 slime boss during BC, 20+ mix of 70s wiping cause we couldn't do enough Frost Damage.

Got a video of us doing Frogger in old Naxxrammas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-46tPuSj2E

Yes! I did the same thing. Opened a ticket in game asking if they would be able to find/restore an account and gave them email/name/character names/realms associated with account in question and they were able to add it to my bnet!
