May 2nd 2009 8:28PM There have been a few things that I was sure I'd never do - raiding, or playing a rogue, for example - that I ended up doing and enjoying a lot.
So, my "nevers" may change.
However I am reasonably sure that I will never:
- Play a human
- Play a warlock or warrior
- Manage to level a mage up. I've started many, and got a couple to reasonable levels, (one 50, one 60) but end up leaving them. Don't know why. I quite like the class.
May 2nd 2009 6:28PM I agree with Zayd. It's not just for purposes of epeen, though I know that would be important for some. Everyone and their dog is wearing tier gear now, including some players that I've run with and know to be complete morons. It's like the "everyone's a winner" approach of school prizegivings. I'm not going to get into the argument as to whether that's right or wrong, or whether fail players are just as important as people who aren't carried through.
But pre-wrath if you were picking someone for your team or your guild, at least you could get some kind of reasonable idea as to where they were in the game by looking at their gear.
Even if I'm not one of the people who gets to be wearing the best and most shiny version of the Ulduar gear myself, I still like the idea that there is something to aspire to. It did get boring, in BC pre nerf, when every time someone spotted a player with a warglaive they just HAD to link it in guild chat (Um. Wow . Yes. I haven't seen one of those since...well the last time someone linked it) but at least there was that sense that there were items that stood out enough for enough for people to still be impressed by.
Apr 24th 2009 5:50PM Seeing Thrym for the first time in Zul'Drak is a highlight. I'd deliberately not read ahead about Wrath creatures and I'd never met Thaddius in old Naxx, so that made it even more of a shock.
Then in Ulduar, doing the antechamber for the first time. We're down the bottom of the stairs admiring the pretty starry sculpture when we hear an alarmed exclamation from our normally very quiet and unflappable tank. We thought some trash mobs had ambushed him but no. He'd just spotted Kologarn for the first time.
Apr 23rd 2009 1:48AM I liked the vocals, actually, even if the sound production wasn't polished.
Mar 27th 2009 4:10PM I love everything about the Vrykul, but the panto-swedish accents of the some of the female ones, particularly the poison seller in Brunnhildar village, is double awesome with extra awesome sauce.
Mar 25th 2009 7:39PM Nearly all my characters have unique names, at least, unique across servers in the US armory, without recourse to using special characters.
With the two most recent characters I rolled, I decided that I wanted to use names from Finnish mythology. Which is against naming policy, but I see so many others flaunting it in more annoying ways that I figured Meh. Those toons are the only ones I have that don't have unique names.
Obnoxious names are good in that they give pretty fair warning that the person under them is probably not someone that I'd want to play with. Also in my experience anyone who calls themselves something like "Bestlock" or "Awesomehunter" is usually NOT.

Mar 16th 2009 11:09PM My thoughts exactly Nieboh.
Also I've often wanted to throw in some positive feedback on forums but just didn't feel like being trolled to the ground while wiser and more elite minds than mine explain loudly that I am in fact a noob and trot out pages of theorycrafting to prove that in fact I am actually not having fun at all.
