Apr 4th 2012 8:38AM My main is a hard core collector (182 and counting) so he has an addon that cycles through about fifteen of the rarer ones or personal favorites. Dragon Kite, Rocket Chicken, Celestial Dragon, Searing Scorchling, Moonkin Hatchling, Lashtail Hatchling, and so on.
But my alts generally keep one specific one. My paladin is all blue and gold and looks like she wishes she were in the alliance, so she keeps a Gryphon Hatchling. My DK is a big tough guy, so he has Deathy. My druid is a druid, so he has the Moonkin Hatchling. And for some reason I feel quirky with my shaman, her being a goblin, so she has Speedy.
Apr 4th 2012 8:29AM I did that too! But it was the other way around. I started an Alliance toon specifically to get the blue tantern for my hordie. And I didn't want to delete my DK, so I level up a rogue to about 30 and attempted to bring her all around the world for the 50 coins. I only got 42. I would have gotten them all, but for some reason, while I had three weeks to do it, I waited until basically the last day to start collecting them. I got 36 coins in about 6 hours on a level 30. The only coins I didn't get in EK and Kali aside from dungeon ones were the Blasted Lands and Azshara. I'm a glutton for punishment.
Apr 3rd 2012 1:20PM This and reading the Z-Axis article again remind of the time I accidentally flew from Outland to Bloodmyst. I was flying to BT, so I set my mount to fly in southeast toward the place, then went and got a snack. But I forgot, so by the time I came back, I'd flown past Shadowmoon, way out into the Nether and died of fatigue. I can't remember if I manually released or if the six minute timer ran out, but the graveyard it put my ghost at was in the far northwest of Bloodmyst Isle. At the time, I'd just recently read that z-axis thing article, so I figured I'd discovered that the Draenei zones are physically located to the south east of Outland on the same plane.
Mar 31st 2012 1:13PM Yes! Seconded! I've already donated to the Kampfire/Peacebloom Super PAC.
Mar 30th 2012 12:18PM I'm almost exactly the same as you. In games I played in the past, it was always "characters" and then shortened to "chars". (pronounced cares) Then when I started playing WoW, everyone is throwing the word "toon" around and I didn't understand why. I thought it was really stupid, so I resisted at first. Eventually I gave in and started using the term, but I actually still don't understand the term, and it's been years.
Mar 27th 2012 4:11PM Cephas, I feel your pain. I still need the Tol'vir mount, pet and staff. (And that's not even taking into account the one rare i still need for nelf, troll, fossil and dwarf. [but it's kalimdor, so forget dwarf]) and all I get it friggen Nelf commons day in and day out. I have probably around 200 of those alone. If I see one more [Carcanet of the Hundred Magi] I'm going to shove it up Harrison Jones's -ahem...
Mar 27th 2012 12:59PM Luotian, there was actually a brief time in the beginning of Cata where you could cause a bug as you tamed a pet so it would keep cool effects on it. For the most part it involved the pet keeping any buff/debuffs/etc when it was tamed. So if a plagued bear has the little green skulls floating around it it would still have that permanently when you tamed it. The downside to this is that almost all of these would go back to normal the first time the pet died. No more little green skulls floating around your pet. But there were five exceptions that would stay cool forever, even through death. The burning boars from the Tauren starting area would stay on fire forever. There was some ghostly owl; I forget from where. The oil covered wolves (I have one. His name is BP.) and birds from Borean Tundra would stay oily. And my favorite: There's a quest in Eastern Plaguelands to kill a ghostly wolf with a sword sticking out of its face. It stayed as is. To this day, I have a ghostly wolf with a sword in its face, and when people ask about it, I just tell them he had an accident trying to shave like daddy.
Mar 27th 2012 12:50PM You are now officially my favorite person ever. I don't know why I didn't think of that. Guy impersonating a bear, then getting stung to death by bees. I'm afraid I didn't punch out any women or assault and children though.
Mar 27th 2012 12:49PM Lol, my title for the picture was actually Hunny Business. So, yes, I had that in mind.
Mar 27th 2012 12:34PM Curses! In the time it took me type my response someone beat me to the Lost reference. (I had to go to Lostpedia to look up what the bearing was and ended up getting caught up reading some articles. Then I chased a butterfly.)
