...then Id try and break causality or something. Maybe give lvl 1 me 5000g.

"You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him."
I believe the code of conduct a person holds them-self too in a place with high anonymity says a lot about that person. More so if there is no way to verify one way or another. If you can't show some common decency over the internet, whats stopping you from being an ass outside the internet? The eyes of others? Fear of getting caught?
Aug 3rd 2010 5:14PM I've now done the new tank experience no less than 3 times now since patch 3.3. Let me tell you how much I have come to hate you all since I started tanking.
Story's like the breakfast topping really grind my gears. Raging at new tanks or being snarky doesn't help anyone, in fact it usually just makes things worse. We NEED more tanks, we NEED more healers. Yet every time I've geared up a new tank its been the same thing. Snide comments from the death knight or fury warrior about how they have more health than the tank. Complaints from the mage who AoE's before mobs even get to me that I cant hold threat. Generally hateful or pompous comments on gear quality. Never mind that we might be in nexus, that one is defense capped, and that the healer is managing just fine.
Personally, I deal with it all with a large dose of apathy, and its what I recommend to all my friends who ask me how to tank. Woe to the mage or warlock who pulls before me. I wont save them. I probably wont even step in to help unless the healer is threatened.
Let me tell you, I would have given up on this tanking thing long ago if it wasn't for the kind words and encouragement from strangers. The "you did fine man, ignore that prick" or "nice tanking" make it all worth it.
Aug 1st 2010 4:39PM see, this is the reason I developed an entirely new (to me) strategy I've come to call "The Meta". Over the coarse of wrath I've steadily leveled up a small self contained industry for my toons. Currently I need to shop outside my own characters for very little. I have my own jewel crafter, enchanter, blacksmith, leather worker, tailor, engineer and alchemist.
The for Cataclysm I also have a inscriber planed. Its the one chink in my armor, but at the moment it doesn't matter, mostly because of the wall effect described above. I think the most I've paid for a glyph I think is 20g.
It's a wonderful plan, it largely allows me to ignore the AH trading schemes and has placed me in a very good position to dominate the early market in cataclysm, when the potential for making money is at its highest.

it's just not the sort of thing you do.
Feb 17th 2010 6:48PM the truly memorable ganks are often the ones that take the longest to set up - they also happen to be the sweetest. I remember when I was back on spinebreaker I watched a little blood elf warlock do the quest in Nagrand to get the birds eggs. she must have spent at least an hour or 2 trying to get up into that nest. when they did finally get up there I was waiting, stealthed with a cheep-shot with their name on it...
I could hear the rage over the internetz. it was delicious.
