Oct 4th 2010 8:26AM Some of the most spectacular self-inflicted deaths I've ever seen happened back in BC. When Prince enfeebled the kara raid, my husband, a hunter, used a fel mana rune thingy that restores mana at the cost of health, woops.
My shadow priest friend was standing in Netherspite's beam that increases damage done, but also damage taken and forgot to leave Power Word: Death out of his rotation, woops.
The best ever though was sort of my fault. Some guildies were helping a friend attune to Ogri'la, and we were waiting for him near the giant gronn that sits guarding his treasure. My pally friend challenged me to a duel, and he probably would have won had I not feared him right into the waiting gonn.
May 24th 2010 8:39AM One of the hunters in my guild and I were walking around Arthas' platform waiting for everyone to group back up after a wipe. I forgot to toggle my run back on, so naturally I got the first plague and started sauntering over to the OT with the adds. By the time I realized why I was moving so slow, it was too late.
May 11th 2010 8:51AM My guild started out as a casual guild for a bunch of friends. We had all been playing on different server, and decided to play together. We've picked up a bunch of people along the way, some of whom I have met (and it's always been so much fun!) and others I have not had the chance to meet yet.
A couple guys in my guild who live on the east coast have developed a rad bromance and visit each other for weekends regularly. Another guildie works at Disneyworld and met up with guildies who were on vacation there.
I got married in March and about half my guild was there. :)
Apr 17th 2010 9:05AM Are you sure you had no warning that it wouldn't transfer? When I purchased my mount on Thursday, I was warned several times through the process that the redemption codes were EU/US specific. It's there in print.

Mar 15th 2010 9:09AM I am actually in the same place as the "deserters" in this post, and it's not an easy thing to do. I had been playing in a 10-man guild with several RL friends for about 4 years. We merged with another guild that we had run with casually around the arrival of ToC. It simply didn't work out. My friends were frequently unhappy with organization and decisions and felt they didn't have a voice at all. It went from a great casual relationship to one where I didn't even want to log in because it felt like a chore. We needed, for our own sakes, to go back to our 10-man ways. My fiance quit wow not long before our merger and he was beginning to get upset at the amount of time I was busy raiding. Leaving the larger guild was important for my relationship as well.
Do I feel bad for the people that I left? Yes, I feel terribly guilty. I wish them all nothing but the best and hope that they will forgive me and continue to be friendly. At the end of the day I had to make a choice that worked for my professional and personal commitments without quitting WoW entirely. Sucks.
Feb 8th 2010 8:59AM Troll rogues are tough to find on my server as well. In fact, during the Thanksgiving event, I had a bunch of extra time on my hands with the holiday from work, so I rolled a troll rogue (I'm normally alliance) and ran it from their starting zone to Ratched, through STV and up to Stormwind to sit at one of the feast tables. It was an epic run; totally worth it.
