Apr 3rd 2012 6:02PM What Daisy said. As a woman, I've been playing almost exclusively female toons since the beginning of Wrath. I don't think any pugs have ever made the assumption that I'm a woman or if they have, they haven't said anything about it. My guild has several female raiders and I haven't encountered any sexism in guild.
Sexist WoW players are mainly young adolescent boys or blatant trolls. And let's face it, these are two demographics that spend a lot of time on MMOs. And I do see them in trade chat. I'm not saying "deal with it, ladies," but female WoW players can avoid these people the same way male players do: /ignore dumb people and join a guild that screens for immaturity.

Aug 9th 2010 2:07PM Considering how many people get their legendary (which the whole guild has to work toward for them) and then immediately gquit and move on to a guild with further progression, I have yet to meet a player with Shadowmourne that I can respect.
Apr 15th 2010 10:30PM I need to win a mount or else my husband will be forced to "surprise" me with one for my birthday.
Which is in September.
Nov 17th 2009 1:46PM Say your guild's recruiting and someone applies saying they've full cleared all raids except 25-man ToGC. Easy enough to check, thanks to achievements.
Nov 15th 2009 8:31PM I can sympathize a little with the wife. My husband tends to get obsessive about his hobbies. Before WoW, it was poker: online, pub tournaments, whatever. While I never forced him to limit his play, it did irk me that he was paying all this attention to something that wasn't me. My hobbies (reading, video games) were easy to set down when he came in the room. Online poker = no pause button. We tried to play together; he taught me his tricks, took me to tournaments, but I just wasn't interested. Eventually we decided we needed our hobbies to include each other & WoW seemed an easy choice, since we both liked gaming (though Final Fantasy was more my speed). We leveled together & had fun doing that; he drifted into PvP, which I sucked at too much to enjoy. But then I hit 80 & joined a casual raiding guild. He followed, got into it, eventually got us into a more hardcore guild, and now we raid together three or four nights a week. After a year of playing WoW, I think we're closer than we've been in the six years we've been together. Honestly I think every couple should share some hobbies, be it WoW or whatever.
Nov 1st 2009 2:37PM It should be noted that both this pole & the bone one can be disenchanted into Dream Shards. I got both a couple months after winning the Stranglethorn tournament & getting my Arcanite pole, so I went ahead & DE'd them.
Nov 1st 2009 10:51AM Got 3 Hallowed Helms on my main, but no pet over 2 weeks of Trick or Treating. I did get the pet on my level 3 paladin. Finally got my main's squashling by winning an HH roll on the last day & was inappropriately excited. I also got my DK up about half a level on Trick or Treating alone. I then went on to level her up to 68 through Outlands & picked up not one, but two Halloween bags that dropped from random mobs: the 16-slot Pumpkin Bag & the 18-slot Jack O'Lantern.
But never saw a mount drop.
