Iconic Classic Videos

Classic Discussion
Hello fans and veterans of the infamous bean called Vanilla planifoli, plainly just known as vanilla, descending from the old Actez's plant tlilxochitl, which now mostly finds its use in deserts and ice creams, listen up!

Everyone has his hero. Even in Classic WoW.

I remember watching videos of people doing certain things which just left me blown away.

I am talking about those guys who brought a little mainstream attention to the game when it was still in it's infants boots (compared to todays addon progression).

So who was this person for you? Who even motivated you to start playing that class ?

Drop your story and let us discuss those old heroes.

I've come up with this list so you guys and girls know what kind of people i have in mind (in alphabetic order & it will definitely miss out some players so don't be mad at me) :

Eryx - Endless Sacrifice (Rogue):

Grim - Total Annihilation (Rogue):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWNt_8xcOZw

The Hackleman Brothers - Myndflame: Illegal Danish
Number 1 (Supersnacks): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUsF8weJJWs&t=14s
Number 2 (Escape from Orgrimmar): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8h1chd0Dfw

Indalamar - THE warrior in Wow Beta:

Nihilums Kel'Thuzad World First:

Leeroy Jennkins - you already know who it is:

Unbreakable - The enhancement Shaman:

Vurtne - Frost Mage Legend:

Feel free to post videos etc. of the person who inspired you to play a special class!

For me it would be a 2-way tie between Kungen and Grim.

Edit: I've added youtube links
I can only look back at heroes retrospectively, but Preach is one of my favourite commentators and story tellers for Vanilla content. I couldn't tell you the names of the characters he played, but some of his tales (however treacherous they may have become) are quite inspiring to me. I feel for - just a second - that I'd like to have given that a shot, to become World First or to bang the gong of Ahn'Quiraj.

One thing's for certain: my title here most definitely does not mean the Most Vanilla Player. Now Most Vilified Potato? Nobody can take that away from me. ^^

+1 for the thread, I'm gonna look up some of these folks now and see what they had to say of the game back then!

I was thinking about off-game characters too and i'd like to mention the Hackleman Brothers (Myndflame), creators of illegal danish.

They are MVPs in some sort to me.

thanks! you'll find some epic videos
There were two videos that I remember which I always used to watch that made me create a warrior character, sadly I forgot the names of those videos/people. One of them was a warrior that wasn't even highest level (maybe even dings during the video if my memory serves me right). The other video was a well made video. What I can remember is that both of them had the same song in the background which was:

If anyone knows what I am talking about, please send a link to the videos; it's been far too long since I've watched them.

Perfect music choice, really fits rogues imo.
As a Mage, Otherguy, Atmas, Saerdna and Vurtne were my gods. Faxmonkey for the humour and cool tricks.
