Not mine, but I'll relate it anyway.My brother was a very vocal, active officer of a large guild on my server (so his guildmates should have known who he was). He would write "has earned the achievement [Level 80!]" in guild chat so it would come out as [Brother]: has earned the achievement [Level 80!]" in guild chat, linking SOMEONE ELSE'S achievement, and laugh as the "Grats!" rolled by on the screen.The other thing he did? He constantly told his raiders to "read the boss strats!" before raids, so to test his raiders during a Naxx raid after Patchwork, he said on vent "Everyone make sure to run through the slimes to get your buff for the next boss!" and laugh hysterically as people died. ._.

Ahhh the classic "Stand in _____ get a buff!" routine. I've used that a couple times myself. One of my two personal favorites were both in ToC. The first was telling some newbie raiders in a whisper that having the snobold on your back during the first fight increased your DPS drastically. In vent the four of them (was 25man) argued so hard over who should get the snobolds while everyone else, who had cleared ToC multiple times, simply sat back wondering. One of them was an unholy death knight and he literally sat there spamming taunt on one snobold trying to get it to go to him.The second was convincing a few people who KNEW the fight to play Chicken with me. You know, where you see who stays the longest before backing out. I always won because..well..mages can blink. Thankfully I was the raid leader that time so the following wipe was excused. Totally worth it.
