And how does one get to Honor Hold without going through the Dark Portal or getting a portal from a mage/summons from a lock to Shattrath? And surely your friends are more likely to give your a portal/summons than 600 gold?
Jun 7th 2009 8:34AM Back in the days of raiding Karazhan for fun with alts, we had an alt who accidentally took the wrong ring at Friendly. As we all waited just inside the second instance entrance (up the stairs and across the bridge), she ticketed the GM. With our tanks afk, the GM appeared inside the passage and pulled the trash to either side of us, causing us to wipe (partially cos our tanks were afk, partially cos we were pretty stunned at having a GM visit us).
We all got back and met the GM on the bridge, where we proceeded to give the GM grief for killing us. So, nicely, he summoned us a repair bot that didn't charge us for repairs. He then asked the character with the wrong ring to destroy the wrong ring and prepare to be made ready to take the new ring. This 'making ready' consisted of lots of lights and levitating the character high above Karazhan with fireworks going off all around her. Finally, he turned us all into gnome pirates, except for our off tank, who was turned into a ninja.
It really livened up boring Kara farming :-)
May 19th 2009 8:14AM I wanna win as well! Pick me pick me pick me!!!

Dec 8th 2008 2:53AM Keep working through the Wrath content, especially Howling Fjord, Grizzly Hills, Sholazar Basin, and Storm Peaks. These four zones have quests and storylines relating to the Titans in varying degrees.
As for Sargeras... the Burning Legion is far larger than its operations in Outland/Azeroth. It wouldn't surprise me if the long-term plan for WoW includes an expansion or part of an expansion that sees the fight taken to the Burning Crusade.
May 22nd 2008 5:26PM My other guild runs Kara with a very lovely priest called Necrolar. However, the first time we went into Kara and downed Attumen, Necrolar ran straight at the yellow question mark on his mini-map (the blacksmith), ignoring the 5 undead mobs surrounding him. Needless to say, instant squishy priest and the rest of the raid laughing like crazy in voice chat. Since that day, any silly trash wipe in Kara is celebrated with this chorus (sung to the tune of Blame Canada from the South Park film):
It seems like everything's gone wrong since Noobrolar came along,
He's not even a real healer anyway! :P
Also, he can be referred to as Necroleeroy when we want to wind him up :D

My guild's second kill of Magtheridon was heading towards a wipe witrh him on about 4%, and those of us who were dead started yelling 'throw the kitchen sink at him' 'throw the plumbing' etc. Finally, I yelled out (as someone typed it as well) 'pick up the dead gnomes and throw them at him'. Bang, he died. Now, 'throw the gnomes' is a good luck call to be yelled in Vent when a boss is at les than 10% health :)
Apr 6th 2008 5:16PM Two things from me, one old and one new.
1. When taking people through ZF for the first time, I treat the part with the graves like a proper boss fight. With total seriousness, I point out the witch doctor guy in the corner, and explain that the MT has to keep him occupied, while the rest of the group loots the graves as fast as possible to weaken him.
My girlfriend fell for this and got her shadow priest severely beaten on while the rest of us stood around laughing before our lvl 70 paladin consecrated the lot of them.
2. I almost fell for this one today in AV. Someone suggested in /BG that typing /afk list would provide a list of all players afk-ing. Half the alliance team disappeared in seconds.
Mar 15th 2008 8:35PM Back in December, I created a Night Elf druid, and levelled him around Darkshore and Ashenvale. For the first 25 levels or so, I would sporadically receive random group invites. Ctrl-click would reveal low lvl characters based in Elwynn and Westfall. I couldn't understand it, so one day, I accepted group invitation. Cue a macro containing badly punctuated and spelt adverts for gold and power levelling services, followed by a quick group disband.
I wasn't going to stand for this, so I polled my guild for the most vile and disgusting insults imagineable, made a /p macro, and would compete with any further spammers to see who could get their macros off fastest, before disbanding the group and reporting spam.
This petered out around lvl 25 or so, when I guess the spammers realised that targeting someone who had completed 1/3 of their lvling was a waster of time, as they would not be as interested in powerlvling or free gold.
