Dec 19th 2007 5:34AM For the Horde, baby. For the Horde.
Apr 6th 2007 12:59PM To the best of my knowledge, if you destroy your healthstone, talking to any innkeeper will give you an option to receive a new one free of cost. I'm only 85% sure on this one, though.
Apr 4th 2007 8:42AM Did any of you fight Gruul last night? My guild on Dalvengyr-H one-shotted him because he only shattered once. I'm curious if the same thing happened to anyone else or if we were just lucky.
We were so pumped once we were done that we immediately flew to Karazhan to kill the first couple of bosses

Apr 3rd 2007 9:50AM @Dark - Look at the list of figures they've covered:
The Alliance Expedition - Alliance
Arthas Menethil - Alliance Prince turned Scourge
Grom Hellscream - Horde turned Burning Legion back to Horde
Illidan Stormrage - Alliance turned Burning Legion
Kael'thas Sunstrider - Alliance turned Horde/Burning Legion
Lady Vashj - Burning Legion
Medivh - Burning Legion turned Neutral
Neltharion - just plain crazy
Sylvanas Windrunner - Alliance turned Scourge turned Horde
If you look, you'll see there are plenty of Alliance lore heroes mentioned... they just defected to either the Horde or Burning Legion. Of course, if you want real heroes, there's Vereesa Windrunner (Sylvanas' sister), Falstad Dragonreaver, and, of course, Rhonin who, with the previous two, destroyed the Dragon Soul and freed Alexstrasza. Rhonin later went back in time with a consort of Alexstrasza and Broxigar, an orc warrior, to the Burning Legion's first invasion of Azeroth.
Apr 3rd 2007 8:57AM I wouldn't mind seeing some speculative lore instead of something already proven. Something thought-provoking. For example, look at the Grimtotems. They're one of the only tribes not to band together with Cairne when he unified the Tauren. Yet, the leader of Grimtotem, Magatha, resides in Thunderbluff. It's long been said that Magatha is seeking power for herself and would probably challenge Baine for leadership should Cairne die. Despite being aggressive to both the Horde and Alliance, however, they appear to remain true to the Tauren lifestyle and, in Thousand Needles, the Grimtotems even have Tauren Rogues and Mages. Are the Grimtotems plotting something? And quests in Thousand Needles suggest they're allying with someone; who is it? The Scourge of Razorfen to the north? The Centaur of Thousand Needles below the mesa? Some new power?
If you want a topic more relevant to the expansion, anyone who read Rise of the Horde knows what Oshu'Gun is, but you could always explain how it, Mother Kashur and the naaru, K'ure, are related and what impact it will have for the Draenei and Orcs (since they both hold it as a holy place) and what this means for Orc/Draenei relations since the orcs have freed themselves from the Burning Legion's corruption.
Or, as someone else suggested, go over a list of the Easter Egg NPCs you meet in South Shore in the Caverns of Time. If Nathanos Marris becomes the Blightcaller when the Scourge attacked his home, killed him and brought him back as an undead, I'm curious to find out what happened to the little Marris girl. Did she die? Or is she out there somewhere following in Nathanos' footsteps before he died?
Apr 3rd 2007 8:15AM That's the exact reason I toss buffs at random players when I see them. Especially as a pally, my 5 minute buffs are incredibly cheap and I usually get a 30-minute STA or INT buff in return. And, of course, I'm always secretly disappointed when I buff someone and don't get anything in return.
Mar 26th 2007 4:59PM "World Server Down"? What the f*** does that mean?
or even better...
[Bill Lumbergh whispers]: Hello Peter, what's happening? Listen, are you gonna have those flasks for us this afternoon?
[To Bill Lumbergh]: No.
[Bill Lumbergh whispers]: Ah. Well then I suppose we should go ahead and have a little talk.
[To Bill Lumbergh]: Not right now Lumbergh, I'm kinda busy. You know what, in fact I'm gonna have to ask you to just go ahead and send me a tell later, I've got a raid with Nihilium in a couple minutes.
[Bill Lumbergh whispers]: I wasn't aware of a raid with them.
[To Bill Lumbergh]: Yeah, they sent me raid invite.
Mar 23rd 2007 8:25AM "When players kill other players with the Shatter mechanic through stupidity, all resulting item decay will be assigned to that player."
A large part of me wishes this one wasn't a joke.
Mar 12th 2007 2:47PM Instead of a new class, what about a new talent tree based on profession or epic quest line? For example, a grand master engineer who opens up a new talent tree called "Tinkering" or a troll epic quest line that gives a player a talent tree "Cannibal". Barring some minor restrictions, any class could open up almost any tree allowing them to broaden their abilities or focus on a specific roll.
A priest who puts his points into the Tinkering tree could suddenly have a resummonable pet a la an Elemental, could increase his bomb strength or temporarily empower himself as a beserk killing machine like the Goblin Tinkerer hero from WC3. Or a warrior could put points into the Cannibal tree allowing him to eat the bodies and drink the blood of his enemies so he could regen health in and out of combat as well as increase the damage he does the more hurt he is.
They could add variety to old, traditional classes as well as include a sense of uniqueness.
