Nov 16th 2010 5:31AM Lol, I was there last night (same server!), utter utter carnage.
I won an Alterac Valley and respawned surrounded by the corpses of 30 Stone Elementals wondering what the hell was going on :D
Plus I liked the line of about 100 players in single file on Mammoths lined through the drag which occured before the AV too, took a few screenies :)
Dec 3rd 2008 4:48AM I've never been too fussed with playing the game for lore-based content; it's always been PvP and social content which has happily quenched my thirst. With TBC there is literally no real content which sticks in me head lore-wise; I really couldn't care less about Illidan, blood elves or the draenei.
Since hitting Northrend and playing through with the Death Knight the quests get you to be directly involved in the main story so often that it's really difficult not to get caught up in it. Yesterday I ended up finishing every HF quest (achievement ho!) and ending on the Queen in Gjalerbron was awesome :D I like the way this also set the scene for explaining the Instances too; most instances get a small mention in quests before groups go there, Blizzard are now now giving them full introductions. It just makes me want to do EVERYTHING REMOTELY POSSIBLE. Fank u Mr Blizz :D
Oct 29th 2008 1:13PM I managed to do everything bar the ridiculous 20 mask q by early last week, and was so relieved to have3 read on here that 3.0.3 will be scrapping that from the Hallowed title. I managed to somehow win both the pet and the hallowed helm on the same drop (with 5 people rolling 'need' on both too :p). Calls of haX0r and ninja ensured :D
Yeah, I think this year it's been a good event, plus alot of the dungeon runs have been made fun with the wands etc; changing someone into a gnome just before they tank Romeo and Juliet is a right wind up:)
Oct 26th 2008 5:34AM This morning I picked up the Argent Dawn qs from Ironforge and was sent to the Eastern Plaguelands. Outside the Light Chapel I picked up the 2 quests (catergorized as Invasion) and checked me world map to find a few different skulls dotted about. I went down the Blasted Lands (where one of these were at the time) and found a few other players curious about this quest too. We teamed up and got involved in some awesomeness :D Well worth doing; also some nice purple gear drops too (all seem to go towards +undead damage) from the elites to tie you over until WotLK. Well recommended.
Oct 22nd 2008 1:22PM Hohoho, I thought Christmas was in December (or Nov 13th depending on your point of view) :D I've only been able to raise my hit into the early 100's so far (and had to sacrifice a few % crit too in the process). Has been very hit-n-miss recently, as you get moments of numerical joy at the ridiculous splash damage you unleash, then shudder at the 5-10 seconds of "Miss Miss" that float up afterwards. Fank you Mr Blizzard.

Got given this if you haven't seen it already, was a 10 minute vid of Lich King including footage of flying mount fighting :D Hope you enjoy (and haven't seen it b4) :)
Mar 26th 2008 8:43PM The cooking recipies from Malygen (Bear Kabob and burgers) are unfortunately only 250-295 skill, and not upto 300. According to the patch notes it was meant to take you to 300 but that never happened (bah, hate fishing lol)
Mar 20th 2008 6:56AM I levelled up a Draenei Priest to 20, and managed to solo the dragon using him too. I did this within a few nights of rolling and enjoyed every minute of it. Got upto about 26 and got to Darkshire, then was bored senseless lol.
He's not pretty much permanently outside the bank JC'ing like nuts and making a fair bit of gold for all of my alts (also he's been left as the AH'er for me too). Went back over to my Warrior and haven't really looked back. I guess once the initial stint is done he didn't have the direct appeal that other characters did for me at that time. I'll get back to him one day though.
Mar 4th 2008 3:22AM #9 works in instances too, 'cos every n00b who agros 5+ mobs after clicking "Fear" on the last mob blames me lol
Nice thread :)
Feb 27th 2008 6:32AM I've made messing with specs myself recently, having just hit 70 with my warrior; was 20/41/0 while levelling up (dual wielding speciality) and have changed to 41/20/0 for PVP (2 hand weapons spec with axe speciality, bumped my crit up 5% with this). Taking a little while to get used to it but has high burst damage and I seem to be getting alot more kills with it (had to keep execute too, or the "INSTA-PAIN button" as I call it).
The one thing I did bizarrly neglect on this spec was "Improved Heoric Strike", as I now use Mortal Strike instead. Doesn't quite do the same amount of damage but limits healing; ideal for pvp.
