Could you only raid Onyxia once a week back in Vanilla Wow?Oh god thats terrible. Nearly a whole year just to get a raid geared for Nefarian. =/

It meant guilds in BWL had earned the right to be there. It really meant something to be in a BWL guild at the time.

What usually happened is that the people that you kitted up with cloaks left to join guilds that were already progressing into BWL, it was harder for newer guilds to get a foothold in BWL because of it.

Yes only once a week, no not nearly a year. Skinning Onyxia would give two to four scales per kill (as Euan said). That'd make 2.5 to 5 months. It'd take you that long to get everyone geared up from Molten Core (remember, 40 people need those drops, and there wasn't a token system yet, so once all your warlocks (of which it seemed you'd have about 2) had their Felheart, any more Felheart that dropped was wasted chances for others to gear.Progression was slow and challenging back then. My hunter will never sell or disenchant her epics from those days.

Ony was on a 3 day lockout back then I believe, could be wrong it's been a while.

The original poster haven't done the whole thing even once. First of all, scales are skinned, 2nd - skinning yelded 2-4 at once, so on average you needed around 3 months to get 40 man raid geared up with cloaks.

"Progression was slow and challenging back then. My hunter will never sell or disenchant her epics from those days."Because progression was EARNED back then, instead of the entitlement system we have in place now.
