Dec 18th 2006 12:12PM Ok. I'm a newb. The names I typed in my first post didn't show up for obvious reasons.
Original guild name was "Pretty Pwnies"
Now it's "Runs With Scissors"
Dec 18th 2006 12:10PM We had a long list of names when we started our guild on Greymane. We ended up with
As a joke our GM called us at first and made our tabard pink with a white butterfly on it.

Luckily, that only lasted 2 weeks.
Nov 22nd 2006 1:05PM +1 disenchanted enchanter.
I started out with the standard skinning/leatherworking with my rogue. But when I hit that point where leatherworking gets a bit expensive to level (no guild to help supply mats, didn't feel like spending all my playing time grinding on cats and bears) I picked up enchanting.
About the same time I picked up enchanting, I took part in starting a guild. All of a sudden I had people sending me all of their green drops. My mailbox was full every time I logged on. My bank was completely full of enchanting mats. I was happy.
But there is only so much time you can spend on the Trade channel hawking enchants. And there's always a higher lvl enchanter that is hawking at the same time as you. Those rare moments when people would actually pay me to enchant their stuff were great. But they were too few and far between.
So I picked up leatherworking again as a level 40 rogue. I have enough money to just buy whatever mats I need at AH. I've gotten it up to nearly 200 in about two weeks of casual playing. I can now make 4-5 blue items that sell at AH for a very nice profit and my leatherworking pretty much sustains itself even without my skinning.
I've just started my first alt and I think I'm going to go herbalism/alchemy. As a leatherworker, there are a few elixirs that I need for my blue items that are very expensive at AH and alchemists can make for cheap.
Nov 14th 2006 10:26AM When I was leveling up my enchanting I handed out minor-level enchants for free. The only one I ever charged for was Beastslayer because it made weapons glow red and lower level players were willing to pay for it.
Since I've ditched enchanting and gone to leatherworking, I just make lots of stuff for guild members for free. I don't care to be tipped by guildies. I do, however, always offer to tip. I had some guildies who are alchemists make up some Elixir of Minor Defense for me so that I could make Toughened Leather Gloves. On my server that particular elixir sells for 1g each at the AH. They made me 14 of them so, naturally, I tried to tip. They were practically insulted!
Oct 27th 2006 11:29AM My first was an Orc Rogue during the Beta. I didn't play the beta very long. I think I got him up to lvl 12 before I handed the beta account off to a friend.
Fast forward a couple years (about 8 months ago) and my group of friends here at work started a guild. I decided to get back into it and started up a Night Elf Rogue. Probably a very noob thing to do - but I love him! He's my main and will be until the expansion.
