"The coins' denomination roughly corresponds to the importance of the person who made a wish. Minor lore figures threw pennies, major lore figures threw gold coins, and people who are somewhere in between threw silver pieces. There are a few coins here and there that break the pattern, but not many."I've always found it puzzling that most of the racial leaders were too cheap to throw gold coins, choosing silver instead. Then again, I suppose this could be a nod to the "well-known fact" that modern-day monarchs like Queen Elizabeth II of England don't carry money, beyond maybe enough for cab fare."The Missing Diplomat" quest chain - I imagine it rocked *if you were around for he original ending*. Those of us who joined the game after Wrath's launch got stuck doing all that work for a big anti-climax. "Hey, thanks for all your hard work, but nevermind. We rescued the king off-camera while you were busy here." It was months into Wrath before I learned exactly why Bolvar Fordragon was such a big-shot, and I had to learn about him out-of-game.And Vargoth's reference to Captain Sanders ... I've taken to running all of my Alliance toons through that treasure map quest line, just because the shirt and belt make a good basis for a fishing gear outfit :D

I *really* wish they hadn't taken the entire Ony attunement chain out of the game. It was a pain to do, especially at level 60, but there was something really special about getting folks together to kill the (elite) dragons in Burning Steppes, doing BRD runs to get the note and completing Jailbreak!, getting into the back of the Mazthoril cave in Winterspring, etc.Now you've gone and made me all nostalgic.
