People always forget the bad stuff.I'm sure no non-healing priests, druids, pallies or shammas would want to go back. (Because you would be healing)No Flying mounts.No Dailies (farming was a bitch)Rotations are lame (Chaining frostbolts! woo!)Talent specs are lame.No ArenaNo BattlemastersNo Honor Points (its by rank).Lagforge/LagrimarVanilla wow really wasn't all that great looking back on it.

* Five minute blessings (with no Greater versions)* Pallies/Druids/Shamans are ONLY allowed to heal in raids (cor: Warrior tanks only)* No tier tokens; week after week of sharding double Felheart/Nemesis* Horridly-itemized tier sets* Not being able to get loot if your rez timer expires before the boss dies* Not being able to get loot randomly because of bugged Master Loot* Gates in BWL being bugged closed

I played an MS warrior preBC and raided with no problems. It sucked not having an itemized tier set but it was doable just fine.

vanilla wow ftl...people definitely like to gloss over all the bad stuff in their minds. the game changed...get over it. the good memories i had with vanilla wow had more to do with the people i used to run with than the hoops we jumped thru to play the game.

Bah. You can't go back. It's a fact of life.Think of it this way: All you folks that think Vanilla WoW was "better" or "more fun" have to really put things in perspective. Think of your significant other. When you first started hanging out, I bet you had great fun. And sometimes you look back on those days and wish things were still as adventurous and fun. But the truth is, even if you went back in time, the problem is you. Your brain knows what it knows. You can't suddenly forget everything you know and everything you learned and see things with new eyes again. And this applies to World of Warcraft just as well as anything else.It's just the simple truth. You cannot relive the same thing and have it feel the same way it did the first time.Nostalgia is what it is. You can't go back there. It won't be the same. Take what you have now, and enjoy it.

@leonDefinitely the exception - I know pre-bc I could count the number of dps warriors on one hand who had good dps (and even then they were still being blown away by the pure dps classes). I'm still having a hard time adjusting to the massive population of ret pallies (even in bc most pallies healed), or the lack of warriors willing to tank.Goes to show how design affects gameplay - we still need tanks and healers for stuff.Still a new one has showed up - we pretty much won't take anymore dk's unless they want to tank (we have enough dps dk's).

I think things have definitely improved since Vanilla but TBC and WotLK have some disadvantages over Vanilla too.
