Back when it was "hardcore"

Mention things you specifically had experience with (and dare I say...miss?) from WoW back during earlier years that are simply gone from the current casual friendly WoW.

-Defias messenger searching in westfall

-Pages for hills of stanglethron(sp) (damn was this quest(s) a pain, but I miss trading and haggling with others for pages in StV)

-Being to low level for the next quest hub so you actually had to just *gasp* go kill random mobs to level up. (I can't say I miss this *much* but it had a small appeal for some reason)

-Chicken escort quests. (I think these are still around, but I go through zones so quickly that I don't ever really reach them or get the drop, I also recall these being pretty damn tough solo for some reason, I'm betting if they're still around they've been nerfed to easymode. I recall one in (I think) feralas where you keep getting jumped by like 5+ furbolgs per wave or something.)

The robot chicken quests are still here, but now you only fight one mob (besides the regular enemies along the route) and the path is much shorter (thankfully on the latter, you don't have to slowly walk the entire length of Hinterlands or Tanaris anymore).

You can't persuade fanboys. You'd be better off trying to convince a wall. ~CodeNamePlasmaSnake~

Terrible escort quests
The Green Hills of Strangethorn (Although selling pages on the AH was nice money)
Actually having to save up for a mount
Running out of quests in an area and not being a high enough level to reach the next hub
Sincerely not knowing where Mankrik's wife was
Quest Helper NOT being build in the map (You had to actually know where to go, the map didn't point it out for you)
