Nov 1st 2009 8:06AM Got "the Hallowed" title for my main and my new death knight got the plate helm for cackling purposes. Didn't get the mount, but didn't really expect too. All in all it was a very complete experience for me.
Oct 6th 2009 8:15AM I was only able to play for a few days of Brewfest, but I was able to get my title with the whole "buy the gear, return for tickets, buy brew club" trick. Got all the trinkets I wanted off Coren and two tankards. Haven't decided which 'toon gets them, but they are better than anything any of my melee have now.
Would like to see it changed next year to be a little more laid back, but I'm happy that I got mine this year.
Sep 30th 2009 8:59PM My story involves bags as well.
I was killing time in Ironforge looking for a Direbrew group when somebody was broadcasting over /1 that he needed a gold or two so he could buy some 6 slot bags. After getting mocked and ridiculed by many other players I decided to take pity on the poor newbie (lvl 10 dwarf paladin). I had a few netherweave bags sitting in my mail waiting for the price to go up so I could flip them for some extra gold. I gave him 4 of them. He told me he was a new player with no friends in game. No bags had dropped for him in the whole leveling process and he was still rocking just the basic backpack you start with. He was very grateful for the help and spent the next few minutes broadcasting how great a person I was. A little embarrasing, but nice to be recognized.
Aug 8th 2009 9:01AM In game I'm know by those that know me as somebody that loves to quest and does it a lot. Probably a daily quest giver out in the middle of nowhere would be most appropriate. If it was really an homage to me though it would take into account my alt-itis. One daily quest given everyday, but the character that gives it out would change everyday.

Alexadros Mograine was in Naxx, not Tirion. Tirion was out in the border area between Eastern and Western Plaguelands giving quests to help steer his son away from the Scarlet Crusade. Alexandros dropped the Corrupted Ashbringer as he was the one that had created it.
Jul 13th 2009 6:47PM Quests and NPCs that reference Bolvar as a class always call him a paladin.
Jul 12th 2009 9:40AM My ideas for making spirit useful to (caster) shaman:
All mp5 gear on mail converted to spirit.
Water shield changed to have a flat amount of mp5 on it, plus it now allows 30% of passive mana regeneration to happen while you are in combat. The percentage might need to be tweeked a bit, but you get the idea. Enhancement needs some mp5 from water shield so it will need to keep its flat mp5 quality it has now. The extra passive in combat regen is to help restoration and elemental shaman and hopefully end the complaint about healing maces and such "wasting" item budget. Casting shaman will find spirit a useful regen stat.
Unrelenting Storm in the elemental talent tree changed to "you gain 3/6/10% of your combined spirit and intellect as spellpower." Elemental has two major complaints. Too much mana and not enough scaling with gear. Helps with both problems. Eliminates a mana regen talent to make way for shaman to gain more of their best modifier from on gear stats. I would use both spirit and intellect in the talent so that players could choose which stat they wanted to stack.
The percentages I've put above are probably a bit off. Maybe we need more passive regen from water shield. The spellpower conversion might be to generous. However, I think you get the idea.
Jun 16th 2009 8:27AM Hmmm, I got two ideas. If the plan is to bring the whole world of warcraft to an end with the end of the MMO, then I think we should see good triumph over evil. Velen's 'army of the light' is formed by a joint operation of both Horde and Alliance forces. The merged military, with the player as an important member of the group, takes the fight to Argus. Kil'jaeden is destroyed. The Legion is left in shambles. Old adversaries become friends. We all go down to Feralas and dance with Ewoks... whatever.
If the idea is to keep the story moving and just go back to RTS territory or some such then a darker ending is in order. The Shadow Council lives. Carefully waiting for the right moment, the members of this dark order have moved themselves into position quitely. On a calm day they strike. From inside each court some of the most seemingly loyal members of the Alliance and Horde strike out and kill their own leaders. Chaos erupts across Azeroth as both factions are left without any steady hands commanding the ship of state. Players must return to their own racial capitals to protect them. Meanwhile, the Shadow Council raises their leader (an Old God, Sargeras, whoever...) and takes a large chunk of territories around the world. A new Warcraft RTS is released a few months later with new villians to bring to justice and the factions realigning around different cores.
At least those are my ideas...
Jun 3rd 2009 9:25PM Gotta say I preferred the Tundra to the Fjord in terms of the first zones we can enter, but the Storm Peaks were the best experience of the expansion for me. I like Titans, I like goblins, and I loved the big "Sons of Hodir" quest chain.
