    Elwynn Forest chat with Hogger memes and noob trolling was pretty bad in 2005 as well, but nowhere near Barrens chat levels.

    It's not the chat, it's the running.

    Hard to imagine WoW Insider still being profitable to the extent they would keep it around at this point.

    Operations like that suffer tremendously when casual player interest in the game wanes and ad money dries up. Hard to keep afloat even with a loyal core of paid membership folks, which I'm not even sure they had (?)

    They did this with WoD and I like which follows the Timeless Isle with people getting rare/boss kills and sharing loot. They need to go back and do that with at least 40+ zones. Huge undertaking but better.

    Do you mean fill the old world with silver elites each with their own party bag?

    I remember seeing that there are a ton of silver elites in the old zones after CATA. They are just designed for the level of the zones and drop a rare piece of gear and a gold or two. The only places that don't have quite as many now are Outland and Northrend.

    I liked it when sighting a rare was an event and not an annoyance.

    I miss rares. They dropped 99.9999999 (recurring) % shit and you hardly ever saw one, but yeah, it was an event actually seeing one with some of them.

    Of course, it was a different story for Hunters. Tameable rares were an incredible rush, especially the more contested ones.

    Kinda. I just like how it works where if you can get in on the kill and get credit + loot.

    And I like beating someone to the punch with a ranged whatever :lol:

    Got the Primordial Slate Direhorn the other day, killing one of the Zandalari Warbringers in MoP. Some guy had been waiting there for ages every time I went past but must have been in the toilet when the thing spawned so BAM.

    I don't like stuff being too grab baggy, Timeless Isle was just horrifying to me.

    The days of the Time-Lost Protodrake are dead man. You can find it in Nagrand.

    That was almost as good as trolling the other faction during open-world raid encounters.

    There's a dead body of tlpd in Nagrand. Can't be killed there. You still have to go to stormpeaks to get the mount.

    Oh! I will look out for it, I want to see that tease.

    I am so impatient, every time I log in and it decides to make me use the authenticator, which I of course volunteered to use, I say under my breath "oh my god FUCK YOU". Really impatient.

    They're not dead, they're busy. And when they come back I will be one of their special people and get to hang out in their special Hydraxian spa.
