55.  When three players can read the same rules text and interpret it with three totally different results.
56. And a 50 page flamewar results from said text.

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.

57. 25 of said pages are spent arguing about how to argue.

59.  If after significant investment, when fighting with two weapons, you still perform worse than if you just picked up a two-handed weapon with no additional training (unless you're a rogue).

Linnorms are 3.0, not 3.5.
I am constantly amazed by how many DM's ban Tomb of Battle.  The book doesn't even exist!

I am talking about the Steel Dragon from Dragon of Faerun....
When he is ancient he can cast as an 19 level sorcerer in addition to being a Huge dragon and having its own special abilities....
And it is only cr 15....

(I would refute that...  but I guess if I'm just using it as a prereq it still isn't that good...)

When a human with 48 levels of wizard is CR48 and a tarrasque with 48 levels of wizard is CR 44.
My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

I'm more hinting that you also got an increased rate of attack back pre-3E.

You wanna know badass?  Weapon Specialization in 1E in Darts.  Darts.  4 attacks per round at 1d3 each at range.  'Twas wicked. 

They totally nerfed Bow Spec, tho, in 2E.

Still rocks in 3.5 core games.  Gotta do something w/ your bonus Fighter feats...

64. When a third-level cleric can go the rest of his life without sleeping with no penalty.
65. ...but that's not all that impressive, since ANYONE can go the rest of his life without sleeping if he's willing to take penalties to his ability checks.
