the funny part too is that this is 1.12, which is practically bc lite
they're skipping some of the really weird patches like the one where you could fit in wand hits between every cast.
Also it lowers the amount of dumb exploitable stuff they might have to deal with, and lowers the amount of abilities with 30min-1hr cd's.
It's kind of unfortunate though, if they wanted to give a real vanilla experience I think they should've progressed through the patches, but I get not wanting people to see the state some classes were in before the class patches, and how much even more crazily op rogues were in early vanilla.
Granted 1.0 was the best prot pally ever was in vanilla since kings as a 31 point talent was the only way you were ever playing as prot.
