1. Before you pester people about a particular quest, look it up at thottbot.com.
2. If you're talking to someone, don't use the general chat. Whisper directly to them. Nobody thinks you're funny and you're causing relevant text to scroll off the screen for other people. It's awful in Ironforge.
3. I think the add-on Auctioneer is the best thing since sliced bread. It's impossible to manually keep track of the costs of everything or what prices things normally go for in the auction house. Auctioneer does it for you.
4. Go to sleep at some point.
5. Unless you have a lot of experience in battlegrounds, and as much of a temptation as it might be, never go solo unless directed to by your raid leader. You will get your ass handed to you. If you're a DPSer, go with a healer, and vice versa (or whoever is available).
6. Also related to battlegrounds, do what you're told. If you are supposed to play defense for the flag, play defense and stop people. If somebody from the other side attacks and retreats, don't chase them halfway across the map to get the kill. Use your head and evaluate your ability to catch them within a short distance of what you're supposed to be protecting.
7. In my personal opinion, if you're playing with strangers, set looting to need before greed. I find it keeps most people in line and minimizes the chances that somebody is going to get pissed off about who got what. Sure, some people will put down "need" on what they don't actually need, but most people will abide by it.
