Jan 25th 2008 11:53AM You do realize why they have that debuff at the bottom? You can find some youtube/google video of people summoning people in the depths of what may be the well or another aquatic location. Once the unsuspecting person accepts, they find themselves too deep to swim up and drown.
A little warlock unending breath or other trinkets/gear (deep dive helmet anyone) and you can do some same faction griefing for giggles and glory.

Fine, as stated before, gaining money and being smart with purchases was a game mechanic and still is. Buying your mount at 40 is supposed to be a big deal. That is why we had multiple "how to make money" guides floating around. If you do all the quests you can, sell all the grays you pick up and try to keep your impulse buying to a minimum, you will have the 100g needed or right about that point at 40 even without having a collection skill.
Trust me, I have done it at least half a dozen times with different classes.
Dec 4th 2007 7:27PM If the reasoning for daily quests is for money, I don't think they should do it. Part of the experience of leveling up is being dirt poor and deciding between repairing or buying your next skills.
I remember way back when I started my pally in Dec of '04 a friend of mine had been playing for weeks and came along and gave me 75 silver! That money was HUGE for me and I never had to run everywhere since I had money for the gryphon.
If it's done for leveling, then zones are bursting at the seems with quests and places to explore for the first time leveler. There is no need to add repetitive quests into the mix when leveling is already a grind to an extent and is even more accelerated now so you aren't "stuck" in your mid 30s, 40s and 50s like you used to be.
I don't know of any restrictions on the BG daily so I can see you doing it as twinks (unless there is an XP component to it I don't know about).
Nah, daily quests are bliz's bone they threw to us to give us a way to make cash without truly "grinding".
Nov 13th 2007 9:13AM @1 Great minds, eh?
Now, on the subject. Maybe they can do something similar that they did with +healing = +damage. Maybe they could make 5% of your health = Attack Power or Spell Damage(oh would that be sweet). So at 10k health, you could have +500AP/SD. Of course that would be severely OP'd for paladins.
Nov 13th 2007 9:07AM I know I will get lynched for this, but I really don't see a big issue with prot questing/leveling with paladins. With the proper mobs and a couple pieces of gear, you can AOE grind on mobs for hours making farming and questing easy in some cases.
Now prot warriors, watching them kill something is like watching paint dry.
Nov 2nd 2007 4:51PM @14 When I did it on my paladin, I was just into honored and did the grind up to revered in a weekend. I hadn't gotten my "cut" that month yet, so while I was down there getting the seaforium schematic, they gave me my revered level bag.
I am fairly sure the reward is based on what you level is when you accept the quest to get the gems.
Nov 2nd 2007 3:20PM Just did the grind to revered on my pally and my hunter this month. Took 6 hours(spaced out over 3 days) in the heap to raise it 10k rep. AOE Prot Pally love there...
Took me about 4 hours on my hunter to do 7k rep. Used an owl with screech on autocast to hold threat on multiple mobs.
Lots of cloth drops. Some greifing. Overall with other people farming, I was able to do it relative ease.

Gladiator Gavel. Good speed, excellent spell damage, pretty decent stamina. Slap the +40 sd enchant on it and you have pretty much all the threat alot of tankadins run with on 1 item.
