Breakfast Topic: Where do you want your character to die?

Everybody knows that everybody dies, and nobody knows it more than us. Our characters have gone through so many world-changing events, from the opening of Ahn'Qiraj's gates to the death of the Lich King to surviving the world breaker himself. But we have seen in game that not everyone can make it though this world alive -- Cairne Bloodhoof and Magni Bronzebeard, just to name a few.

But if you ever needed to have your avatar lay down his or her weapon for the last time, where should it be? Would you want to die at the infamous Wrathgate, or would you be one of the many nameless killed in the cataclysm -- or would you just have your character pass on in a quiet inn after leaving an eventful and adventurous life?

Breakfast Topic: How about that one gear slot you can't seem to upgrade?

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the AOL guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

People pride themselves on getting the best gear for their characters, whether it's for competitive arenas or to progress as a raider. But do you have that one gear slot that you just can't seem to get an upgrade for? In Cataclysm, I am in a core raiding group and I have been raiding for the past three months -- but after making an almost full clear of both BoT and BWD and countless heroics, not one wand has dropped from any of the bosses.

It's getting to a frustrating point. The truly sad thing is, it is the one slot that is stopping me from getting the achievement Cataclysmically Superior. I wonder if other people have this problem? Has there been a piece of gear that, no matter how hard you try, you can't seem to find a replacement for? It there a blue quest necklace still dangling around your neck? Are you still running around Stormwind or Orgrimmar in green shoes?

Breakfast Topic: What pop figures deserve an Easter egg in WoW?

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider's pages.

Just this past year, I've fallen in love with a television show called Dr. Who. For all of you who do not know what the show is about, it first aired in the 1960s, and it is about an alien who can change his face and goes traveling through time and space with a human girl in a spaceship that looks like a blue box that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. If that turns you off based the level of geekiness from that last sentence, don't worry -- it gets a lot worse.

But as I learned more about the history of the show, I always ended up asking myself, "Where is my Time Lord in WoW?" We are all aware of the fact that Blizzard is not afraid to put popular references in WoW, with Lady LaLa and Haris Pilton -- but why not put in a well-respected science fiction character? The thing that kills me is that there is an excellent place to put the Good Doctor into WoW that makes it seem natural: the Caverns of Time. It would seem like a great fit, a place where heroes can witness significant events and fight to correct them.

What about you guys -- who think should get a nod from Blizzard? Do you stop and ask why there are not five teenaged NPCs running around fighting monsters in five different-colored outfits? Or do you think that adding more and more of these fourth wall-breaking nods ruins the game, similar to what people say that Harrison Jones did to Uldum?
