    Old Slavic languages had eight grammatical case so how would eight grammatical case look like in Slavic languages if they still had it? It would be good that i see example.

    Seven not eight. OCS and Proto-Slavic had same cases as Moderns Serbian, Polish or Czech. Which is pretty much the same as you have in Slovene, Russian and Slovak, with additon of Vocative, case for calling. Proto-Indo European had 8 cases (+Ablative, preserved in Latin for example, also Sanskrit preserved full IE declension)

    Ok but still if we add eighth case how would it work?

    Well, in Slavic languages Ablative merged into Genitve. It is called  ablative Genitive, or Genitive of separation. Example
    "Узео је јабуку из корпе" (He took apple from basket)
    When genitive is used to denote origin, removing etc.

    I think you could understand this sentence (it is definition from schoolbook :D)

    ablativni genitiv genitiv kojim se kazuje otkuda nešto potiče, ili od čega se rastavlja ili udaljava, napr.: Treba se kloniti rđavih prijatelja; Srećno smo se oslobodili neprijatelja.

    So, we would have separate case for that.

    PS
    I made mistake in previous message, Vocative is case of calling (addressing).
