Well I feel it's not just computer MMOs that can lend to someone being a geek.I spazzed when I got the Horseman's Reins from Karazhan a month before WotLK launched.Similarly, I spazzed when i got a jump-shot tomahawk kill from 30 feet away in Black Ops.Does the latter make me less of a geek just because it's considered more "mainstream"?

I don't think the writer is suggesting that one brand of geek is "better" than another, but this website is WoW Insider, so he framed it in terms of the game to which the site is dedicated. I'm sure many of us would be considered "geek," and not just "WoW geek," but this particular piece is aimed at the World of Warcraft audience, isn't it?

Regardless, I would still call myself a geek, no matter which way I'm looking at it. over-enthusiasm for a hobby makes you a geek IMO. Hell, I love being a geek. Makes stuff fun :D

Horseman's Reins from Karazhan? lolwut?You mean the vampire horse, right? (Which isn't "The Horseman's Reins" I don't think.. stupid work firewall..)

Quite so. The Horseman's Reins summon the Headless Horseman's mount, not Attumen's mount (those are the Fiery Warhorse's Reins). Although the confusion is understandable, I've been trying for three years to get the Horseman's Reins - and I've only ever seen them drop twice.ENNUI!!(P.S. a geek)
