Jul 21st 2011 9:40AM I'm sweet irl and in game. But I am sarcastic irl and that hardly ever translates correctly to text, chat or email, etc.
Other than that I gotta say that one thing I participate in in game that I never would irl is that anal thing in trade chat where you link "anal [_____]". That can get so hysterical I'm on the floor laughing. And I'm as far from an 8 yr old boy as you can get. Go figure. I think it's the cleverness of it.
Jul 20th 2011 9:19AM You can name your hunter pet for free once. After that if you want to rename it you have to buy 'Certificate of Ownership' made by inscription prof and for sale on AH.
Jul 18th 2011 10:16AM Thrall and Aggra hands down the best drama I've ever been touched by in WoW. The way it unfolds while you're fighting, you want to keep turning and watching. It really hooked me in while I was underwater and she was talking about his visions while we could see them in the whirlpool. Her acting was amazing!!! I hope we see more of her.
I need more 85s just to see this again and again.
Jul 15th 2011 8:29AM Rogue and Dk have that instant satisfaction of rushing in and hitting things. Warrior didn't have it for me, although that was the first toon I tried. And Ret used to but not now.
Jul 7th 2011 9:23AM On the achievement The Fiery Lords of Sethria's Roost, I wish they would make it like in Tol Barad where if you participate in the kill you get credit. Now, I guess you have to be in a made group or get it tagged first.
Jul 7th 2011 9:18AM I've had that looting bug since patch 4.1. Sometimes when you click it loots, sometimes not. You don't realize it until you see the mob is still sparkling and have to go back to try and loot a second time.
Jul 2nd 2011 8:22AM It was an escape from the reality of the financial crisis in 2008. And I wasn't the only one. I saw toons named Lostmymoney and Citigroup on my server. First time I logged in I got the polar bear pet. Being a virtual pet fan from way back I was trying to feed it :P
Jul 1st 2011 9:52AM I think a male troll in a dress is the coolest combo in the game!
Jun 22nd 2011 10:49AM I stress over skintone/color the most, especially since you can't change it. I practice alot before committing. Sometimes after a period of time I may find I made a mistake. For example, in belf I wanted a light tone but I picked one that turned out to be kind of flat. I saw someone once who seemed to be glowy and checked the various skintones again in the starting area and found it. But I'd already had mine.
Other than that, name is most important. I have scraps of paper all over the house listing names I make up. That goes for hunter pets too.
Jun 8th 2011 10:21AM I'm surprised so many find Org confusing. This is the one that feels most like home for me. I agree on the barrow dens (so frustrating, not fun) and the first ICC dungeon corpse runs.
It was so fun tho as a new player to get lost in an opposing faction land and having to watch every step you take so you don't run into an npc or something. As a horde, getting to Duskwood and Elywnn Forest, even Deadmines was so memorable for me.
