Oct 11th 2011 11:21AM I've split out whispers and guildchat into a new window to keep the random spam separate for this very reason.
May 19th 2011 1:24PM I hate him not because of who he was before reading Stormrage (i kinda liked the broody sarcastic night elf who couldn't care less who you were), but for suddenly realizing he was playing us all along, making us accessories to poisoning Malfurion.
Curse you Staghelm! All those handins on two characters for the Ambassador achievement, and all the while I was wondering if we'd ever get to see Malfurion wake up. Curse you!
May 6th 2011 8:47AM I'm just back from a guildies wedding, and they're coming to ours in a few months!
Jan 5th 2011 1:30PM They can add all of the fixes they like for this one, but it still won't fix it completely.
One reason: "There is always a bigger idiot"
I should know, I work in tech support - my mortgage payments depend on this simple little fact of life! :)
Nov 2nd 2010 8:55AM This!! My main for years was called Inaraserra - my boyfriend farmed for weeks solid for that little firefly pet (very shiny!), and the very next patch they took the reference out. Broke my heart that did!
Oct 5th 2010 11:09AM Nice!!! I saw this on Facebook a while back - was at EP (that festival) this year and it was just full of all sorts of Epic Winnage like this :)
Sep 13th 2010 12:47PM The last I'd heard on this was anyone with a 310% mount got the 310% skill for free. But that said, its only 250g.. so either way I'm not pushed as to what they choose to do. 250g is easy to come by.
Actually i just realized that didn't answer your question, but I can't imagine why they'd remove that mount as a reward - completing all of those events still takes a lot of dedication and effort and that wouldn't change. The event bosses would likely be scaled up to 85 though.

Jul 16th 2010 11:30AM Exalted with the Bloodsail is a really, really steep challenge... I looked it up once, and ran away screaming.. here's what i remember..
You can only get to honoured from killing the goblins in Booty bay. You can jump into revered by handing the quest in (i got to 499 revered at one point). After that though, you don't get any rep from killing stuff in Booty Bay. There's a single NPC somewhere in the Badlands (i think, going from memory), that gives 5 rep a kill, and spawns on a timer.
No idea whether he still exists in Cataclysm.
The bright side is though, that when you do go back to do your quests to come back from Hated with the goblins, make sure you do the handins one at a time. You get the most rep with the town you give the handins to, but you get spillover rep with the others. So, you can use that to maximise your rep gain from the handins. Should save you some DM runs :)
Jul 5th 2010 7:55AM Its definitely Soggoth the Slitherer in Darkshore.
I played through that questline on the beta yesterday (and its a truly awesome questline).
(DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER if you don't want to be spoiled)
Its an epic questline that has you fight the "Battle for Darkshore" against the Twilight's Hammer, and its a phased quest. You first spy on the Twilight's Hammer and learn that they are indeed, trying to summon Soggoth. The whole area has changed now, and theres a lot of 'faceless ones' wandering about with the twilight's hammer.
The druids at the Grove of the Ancients send you to Remtravel to learn what you can about Soggoth; apparently he was originally taken out by 20 Stone giants sent by the titans. All giants but 1 were lost, and the last giant allowed Soggoth to wrap him in his tentacles and lift him up, so that he could sink that giant sword into Soggoths skull.
The druids are a bit nervous with this information, but decide that instead of stone giants, the Ancients could help (There's a quirky description of them as 'lumber giants'). To rouse the Ancients from their slumber, you need to get an artifact, but the keeper of the grove has been murdered... by the Naga! (yes, its really strongly implied that the Naga are involved with the Twilights Hammer somehow)
So, off you go offshore to confront the Naga in a cave, only to find out that their leader has sent his summoners up top to present the item to Azshara herself.
As you make your way up to try to stop her, Malfurion appears to help you out leading to an angry exchange between himself and Azshara. I can't remember much of what was said, i was too busy picking my jaw up off the floor at this point. :D
In the meantime, the Twilights hammer have sped up their plans, but because they've sped it up, they've summoned Soggoth only as an Avatar of Soggoth. You then call on the Ancients, and they appear to help you take down the Avatar of Soggoth
It was an unreal questline. I'm not entirely certain on whether it begins in the Grove, with Malfurion himself a little bit earlier, at the Eye of the Storm (thats another really epic one) Everyone should definitely try them both!!! :D
