WoW Insider giveaway: Manaprincess swag {WoW}

Jul 10th 2008 12:01PM I'd wait till I get mugged and shivved/shot to use that health potion :D

What are heroics for? {WoW}

Jan 27th 2008 3:54AM This is fine. I've been in groups where everyone greeded the tomes/armaments and, if people got the "wrong" one, they would simply trade with whoever was in the same situation but of opposite faction (within the group or later).

Blood Sport: Essential Arena addons {WoW}

Jan 25th 2008 12:10AM If a hunter NEEDS to be paired up with a resto druid in order to be successful in arenas, I wouldn't call that "stepping up to the plate."

WTS: Merciless Nether Drake 3,000g PST {WoW}

Nov 12th 2007 4:54AM Quote: he did earn it. by paying 3000g. you do have an inkling on how property, exchange for currency and all those other econ 101 things at work here function, right?

just because he worked smarter and not harder doens't mean he still didn't earn it. if you really think effort must equal reward, then you should be blaming blizzard for allowing such nonsense.[/quote]

Sure, and suppose I bought a pilfered Oscar statuette on the web. Are you saying I earned it because I paid what the seller was asking for it, even if I didn't slave away to perfect a craft and actually win it?

Or say I got an authentic Super Bowl ring made and paid big bucks for it. Did I still earn it even though I never played professional football?

There's a difference between earning something by saving up enough money for it (say, a sports car) and actually earning something through skill and effort (a trophy, a ribbon, a medal, anything that is supposed to reward you for an outstanding skill or performance).

Here, I'll leave you with a little something they don't teach in econ 101: not everything has a monetary value.

WTS: Merciless Nether Drake 3,000g PST {WoW}

Nov 10th 2007 9:46PM It's not about vowing not to display the title, the mount itself serves as a title (which lasts through future seasons, by the way).

Quote: His guildmates quickly jump to his defense, saying that the mount was pretty much the only thing he couldn't farm and compared the cost to the Cenarion War Hippogryph.
-End Quote-

Yeah, it's the only thing he can't farm because it's not supposed to be farmed. It's earned. You want an armored netherdrake? Become a leet PvPer and EARN it.
