Anyone else miss the WoW events/exploits that caused mayhem in the major Warcraft cities?

>no more firebombing the Auction House

>>264987683

so when did it die?
>>
>>264987541

Paladins were walking gods, the only thing that could kill a paladin 1v1 was another paladin, divine storm was pure holy, there was no damage reduction for divine shield, mana was practically infinite with the amount returned on judgements and overall damage and self healing was crazy.

One of the most funnest times I had in WoW.
>>
>>264987730

Oh yeah I forgot to mention you could use both divine shield and avenging wrath, you could kill someone while being 100% invincible.

>>264987721

There was a bunch of hotfix nerfs starting with mana regen from judgements, it went from 33% base mana to 15% and much later it was buffed up to 20% (can't quite remember the exact number) and divine storm changed to physical.

A paladin in pvp armor you get from battlegrounds could easily go 1v5 with people with good gear and win, that's what I did.

Only good pallies healed well. Until Naxx gear good holy pallies had to scrape cloth/ leather gear together because the stats were shit on pally plate.

Even good gear would not guarantee you to bee a good healer. We had an insane holy pally that healed our main tank solo through certain fights and never ran out of mana. The guy was a beast. When he show me a screencap of his actionbars, you saw about 8 different buttons for holy light/ flash light. He downranked like crazy.

Not that guy, but i was a destro lock in vanilla when everyone was affliction. Did the same DPS as others, often out-DPSed them.

Everyone complained about it, but I managed to deliver nonetheless. Nowadays everyone is destro and affliction got nerfed to death, fuck you affliction you fucking boring piece of shit.

Let me guess, you take raiding super seriously and "that guy" who apparently doesn't play WoW to have fun.

And before you whip out that tic tac toe MS paint comic, I don't mean it like that. Not everyone wants to sacrifice what they enjoy so they can run "the right build."

>>264989137
Except a personal build is best because it fits the rotation you like and can excel with, whereas forcing some other build will probably just fuck with you

If your personal preference is good enough to keep up with other specs for your class and provides enough utility then fine, but running retarded specs that completely gimp you just because you like it is stupid.

When Cata came out I was the first on the server to get the recipe for the new alchemy mount. People were paying me 1000+G just to craft it. I wasn't advertising that price, that's just what people were offering. Within a couple of days, some more people got the recipe and spent the day shouting that they'd do it for free. Great business sense, faggots.

partially wrong.
Yes, raiders did whine.
Yes, questing cunts were whining.
Furthermore, erping faggots did whine the loudest.

Blizzard did end the event prematurely simply because the vocal minority complained very very loudly and threatened to unsub.

Meh people complaining about vanillia paladins here :( To me how paladins were back then were the perfect class, just so versatile through gearing.

You could go: Ret , Reck, Prot, Shock, Holy, Fire or just mix and match. Its a shame modern wow doesnt have that anymore :(
>>
>>264991276

But you sucked with all of them. I played as a paladin, and although i wasn't really good at it or any game for that matter, even I knew that paladins were outmatched by other classes in basically any area. You'd only need two paladins; one for Blessing of Kings, and one for Blessing of Might/Wisdom/Salvation.

Then they'd heal a bit, but not as good as priests or druids. Ret damage was shit, and tanking was out of the question before TBC.
>>
>>264991276

The only thing paladins had going for them in vanilla is unstoppable bubble hearths.

I was a hardcore raider back then and me and some of the biggest raiding guilds on the realm were major contributors to the event, we fucked up as much as we could literally ghoul raiding cities.

The only people who hated the event were autistic no fun fucks who ruin the game and they are everywhere, pvping, raiding, roleplaying.
