As has been said by pretty much everyone before me, using WoW to plan a terrorist activity is pretty far fetched. The reasons have also been laid out, so I don't have to delve deeply into them either.However, the conversation itself isn't as far fetched. It doesn't have to fool anyone into thinking the speakers really are gamers, its purpose is simply to keep people from thinking they are terrorists. If I saw the above conversation in-game I would think it was either someone trying to impress me with their game knowledge/skill ("i have 5 70s in full epic", you know the type), or someone who had gotten ahold of a friend's account or trial account and made a character to make fun of the real players. I would not think of terrorist activity.So, seeing the above conversation in WoW would not be very likely, but I can easily imagine it being in a private IRC channel or some other chat network.
