Why Vanilla Players Seem to Romanticize the “Good Ole’ Days”

About the Author:

I began playing World of Warcraft about three quarters of the way through Vanilla. It was my first foray into an MMORPG and I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. Other than a two year break between the end of Lich King and end of Cata, I have been around since the dark days. The days before flight. The days when 100g was a lot and took time to farm.
