Oct 20th 2008 5:07PM Option (a) -- Everyone gets a chance at the items, regardless of whether or not they were able to summon on that run. Assuming each person did their part in the battle, they all get a chance at the loot. This has worked just fine the last few days for me and my guildmates.
Oct 14th 2008 12:29PM I'm gonna go tame an exotic pet -- probably a Core Hound for the novelty of it -- and parade around with it. (Later, I'll probably abandon it to replace it with something more useful.)
Sep 5th 2008 10:31AM As long as it's optional, I see no problem with it. As a GM, I would never choose to impose a tax, though I might be one of the lucky few who has a guild full of generous people who contribute consistently.
If a GM imposes a tax and people leave, so be it. It was a risk and he/she took it.
Aug 18th 2008 6:26PM I guess it depends on whether you're talking about a raider or a non-raider.
Raiders apparently follow the rules outlined by others above.
For us non-raiders, a main is most likely the character(s) you enjoy playing the most. I have two mains, my hunter and my priest. I have several alts. The hunter and priest get about equal play time each week.
May 14th 2008 5:13PM I get a guilty pleasure from reading guild watch. I'm not in a raiding guild, and I completely respect that we all have our ways of enjoying this multi-faceted game. But, I'm still entertained by the drama that takes place in so many raiding guilds. Game on!
May 5th 2008 1:45PM Ha ha! That was fun to watch. Great job, everyone!
Apr 29th 2008 9:37AM I just started playing back in February, so my memory of my first impression is still very clear. I thought it was amazingly beautiful. The attention to detail on the ground and in the air was incredible. I remember thinking it took too long to get anywhere (and still do). I remember noticing how interactive and social everyone was. I remember being amazed by the number of quests there were and if it really would be possible to level without having to grind and grind and grind. I remember seeing my first Draenei in Westfall and thinking it was a Horde race. Not knowing about PvP (and that fact that I wasn't set for PvP) I ran for my life from her.
So many memories. But, the most important of all is knowing within the first few hours that I had finally found a game that was going to keep me interested for a long time.
Apr 25th 2008 3:28PM Having just started playing WoW 2 months ago, I remember very clearly what it was like to have no money and to have no idea how to make it. I finally read an article about mining profession and how much money you could make off of them. I didn't know, however, that the money was made on the AH. I kept selling the materials to vendors wondering, "how in the world can this be lucrative?"
Anyway...after a while I caught on (like everyone else) and now I make a fair amount of money each day. I never once resorted to begging. I remember those poor days with fondness...just like when I look back at how poor I was when I was a starving university student.
Why do people beg? Not because they can't figure out how to make money in the game. But, because they're bored, lazy, clever, not-so-clever, instant gratification seekers, etc. The list of reasons can go on and on.
