Shared Topic Idea: Children of Wrath: Dawn of a new Era

Casual Raid Leader asked:
We've talked about the concept of a BC Baby and the world that they grew up in. What things will the Children of Wrath never see? What aspects of the world will they miss? What aspects will have changed so dramatically that they have no concept of things we speak of?

Interesting idea:

1. What it was like to only have paladins on alliance and shamans on horde.
2. 5 min buffs for paladins that had to be cast on every single person in the group. (Hence the name buffbot)
3. taking 9 mos to lvl from 1-60.
4. BRD, LBRS, UBRS, Scholo, Strat all being 10 man instances.
5. The epicness of BRD.
6. Fighting Onyxia in SW Keep.
7. Sailing from Menethil to get to Auburdine.
8. Trade chat not going across every cities channel.
9. LFG being the busiest channel in game but not a single person actually LFG.
10. Having to run to every instance since summoning stones were non existent.
11. No organized PvP, aka battle grounds or arenas. PvP was chosen by either flagging yourself or fighting in arena by Booty Bay.
12. taking 3 mos to pick up 10 lvls after 60.
13. When Illidan and Arthas were just a piece of lore.
14. Taking down Baron for the first time.


  1. You know what is a really good one?

    The AH was only in one city, Org for the horde and IF for the allies. I remember when they made this change...I was pretty upset because of all the people and the socializing that went on in IF.

    I also remember the no battlegrounds. That was awesome lol

  2. Or when you could enter bgs only where they actually are...
    The many trips to ashenvale in that time... and the world pvp in ashenvale because it was so damn boring to wait 40 minutes for the next wsg pre-battlegroup...
    And the poor new rogues that will never know the joy of swirly-ball.

  3. Oooh forgot about the single city AH. And the PvP while waiting for BGs. And South Shore is under attack. Going across the global defense channel every 10 min.
