Wasn't it during BC that we also saw changes to how mob tagging worked? I forget when kill-stealing went away and you'd simply need to deal the first bit of damage to have the mob "belong" to you.

kill stealing was there for beginning of dailies in 2.4 i remember that, but sometime between that and 3.0 it was changed, i think it was a 2.4.x patch that did it

I thought that was one of the innovations that Vanilla came with? I'm pretty sure I remember them hyping "no more killstealing" back in 2004

It was dealing the first point of damage that tagged mobs up until either sometime in BC or Wrath, when it was changed to the first bit of non-proximity aggro tagged mobs. Warlocks would see their dots go up on a mob, only somebody else would hit it before the first tick, and then wander off while the dots sent the mob chasing after the warlock, then turn around and loot the mob at their convenience.Good times.

Vanilla introduce tagging, as in the first bit of damage gave you looting rights.BC improved this, so that any spell that aggro'd a mob gave you looting rights. A big boon to DoT classes.
