I'm very happy to see you included "The Coin Master". For a long time I was too busy leveling to bother reading up much on the lore, but when I decided to try for my Salty title I found myself intrigued by nearly every new coin I fished up. Such a tantalizing few words on each shiny coin that made me wonder "Hmm, so just what is it about this character that made him/her want this?".I'd alt-tab out of WoW to look up the names on the coins, read about that character with interest, and then find myself falling into "Wiki-holes" for the next couple of hours more often than not.I am a total Warcraft lore fiend these days, to the point that I spend many more hours on average reading than playing. And I don't think I ever would have bothered if those little coins hadn't put forth JUST enough lore to pique my interest, but not enough for me to really interpret them without having to look up more info.Thanks for the inspiration, Blizz!*casually flips her Titanium Seal of Dalaran and wanders off to WoWWiki for a stretch*

and let's not forget some of the great laughs you can get from them too. My personal favorite is Kel'Thuzad's Gold Coin: "Sometimes... I wish someone would come along and just give me a big, long hug."

Staghelm's coin is the only thing that makes me sympathize with him. It makes more sense when you know what happened to him in that war.

The coin that always gets me is Jaina's. I'm not an RPer by any stretch of the imagination, but I nevertheless intend to carry one with me when we finally have access to the Arthas encounter.

Sylvanna's coin really upsets me, I wasn't hugely fond of her before 3.3 but I've read so much back story to her now (and since read Day of the Dragon so know how big her sister is in that) and it gets me everytime.

If only Kael'thas coin would come up for me - the only one I'm still missing...
