From a rogue perspective:

Backstabbing for only 1 damage (SO embarassing!!!!!!).

When you weren't able to use hide and sneak at the same time.

Back in the first 3-4 months of EQ you didn't get a successful message when you tried to hide or sneak. Died numerous times when I hit hide thinking I was hidden, only to come back after a bio to find myself at my bind.

Having an actual printout of every original, Kunark and Velios zone (I should have bound mine).

Porting into Wakening Lands only to have Woushi eat you and the kind druid/wizard that ported you.

Having the 10th ring War interrupt your experience group in the Great Divide/screw up your ability to sell your VL loot in Thurgadin so you can get back to your group (since you told them you'd be only gone 5 mins!).

The Kromrif Death Squad was terrifying!

Taking the boat from Oasis and running across Iceclad to get to a group offer in VL.

Ghoulbane camps in Upper Guk.

hmm don't you mean farming the ancient cyclops for the jboots quest in Southern Ro? The Najena drop is the fabled jboots, which I don't really consider fabled mobs "oldschool" personally hehe.

Hehe this is a sign that you are not old school...=p

(The quest to get the boots from hasten in Rathe Mountains was put in later, originally, way way back, the boots dropped from the same person who the fabled boots now drop from in Najena, hence why they drop from her and not from the fabled AC...=))

OHH yea! .... I do remember that now, holy crap I can't believe I forgot something so important! And no, it's not a sign that I'm not oldschool, just proves a lapse in memory of the original origin of the jboots... yes I am old school, I just completely forgot about that. I started back in 99/00 hehe :) I think I have that proven from my screenshots I posted in the pictures section of some really old screenshots. /bow I do stand corrected though hehe! ^.^
