Dec 9th 2009 1:39PM if you were an alliance newbie who happened to be put on a 4-1 horde dominated pvp server at the character selection screen and had to level up to 70 in BC before the easymode xp, you'd be hardcore anti-horde and pro-alliance. it has nothing to do with the lore.
Jul 26th 2009 8:50PM "Healers are at the mercy of everyone else's gear, experience, and latency,..." This is the reason i love being a healer. Your healer makes or breaks the group, PERIOD. Outstanding healers can compensate for SO much. Yes, you are at the mercy of the group, but on the otherhand, you are the only member that can; through sheer skill, keep a fail group 'pugging' along.
Mar 1st 2009 12:44PM Started a little after BC hit, but my memories:
As an NE druid/alchemist, when i first saw the price for a stack of the highest vials in Darnassus at 1.5g and after using all my gold (or lack of gold) to purchase the leather armor set from the guy in darkshore because it looked sweet then thinking to myself: 'this is why people have to buy gold in this game'.
Camping my first rare, the ghost lady that spawns in Ameth'Aran near Auberdine, for days just to make sure i got all the sweet phat lootz she dropped.
Making that most epic, frustrating, long and terrifying trek from Menethil Harbor to Iron Forge on a tip from a friendly druid on the boat out of Auberdine. For those that have never made this journey as a low-level noob, you have truly missed out.

Aug 27th 2008 11:10PM You HAVE to be choosy! If a healer wants to go, ask him, "how much +healing?". Same for tanks: health, armor? Magic users: +spells... Its not rude, its just the way it is. I personally am more offended when people ask for my spec than for my +heals on my druid.
Omen Threat Meter is a must. If dps is not where it should be AND the group seems to be struggling, leave group immediately. My personal requirement is: your total damage must be above the tank's or you're doing at least 500 dps. The only exception to that is if you bring some kind of viable CC. If you have no CC and you're not above 500 dps, instant /kick.
