    Special Thanks to Captain Grim for editing this video! You may know him from Kurcials videos and his "Varian" video in particular. Hopefully this video will just be the first of many from Grim. (I still write the script and do the voice lines though)

    "Game is too crowded/too many people" - That was a statement you could pick as the reason you're quitting the game in Vanilla. How ironic.

    Reckoning was in the game for a whole lot longer than a day. The issue was, the skills counter reset when you went through loading screens. So going into mc alones as a pally to try and stack reckoning procs for 8 hours wasnt doable. Kazzak was picked because he was a world boss on the same continent with the blasted lands (which had an invincible quest npc to use for stacking procs). The pally bought a ton of white vendor weaps and stacked procs for half a day befor going and reck-bombing DoomLord Kazzak. And the news went so viral in the community and on the forums, that Reckoning was nerfed in less than 24-hours after the act.
    But Reckoning indeed was in the game in that state for a long ass time. He was just the first to abuse it, and the one who got it nerfed.

    You forgot about Soulfire, also 6 sec cast, just as pyro. Also having one shot potential

    You wrote "9. Fear" instead of "8. Fear". Great video nonetheless!

    Rogue 100-0 was easily done without prep. Especially with T1-3 gear. You could time it well enough to kill anyone. It was absurd. Another terrific video. You're great at this. Awesome voice and research and you obviously have intimate game knowledge yourself. Ty!

    When shawdowstep was introduced to rogues (before tbc if you remember the patch had given the new talents) , you could shadowstep -cold blood - ambush with a top gear rogue and pretty much one shot all cloth wearers, prep and repeat for all the rest. i do have loads of videos in warsong just one shot players. our mage was pom-pyro one shot players as they were jumping down the graveyard...oh well..good old times
