Jun 1st 2006 6:30PM The closer my main got to 60, the more I got random whispers asking me to run people through instances. They usually get shot down.
My GM and I have been known to run people through Stockades. We send out a LFG indicating that we have x number of spaces in a group with two 60s and the first to respond politely using complete sentences will be allowed to join. You'd be amazed at some of the whispers we get.
By the way, this also turns out to be quite an effective guild recruitment tool.
Mar 2nd 2006 5:37PM This is a point of constant humor and occasional disgust with my guild. The black mageweave ensemble holds a special place in our hearts and makes one of our priests thankful for the tabard.
Our GM actually bought a full set of mageweave just for fun and proceeded to dance outside the Inn in Stormwind.
Mageweave on a gnome is almost as good as plate bikinis on a Tauren.
Feb 7th 2006 4:49PM Oh man, where do I start? There was the Stockades run where one member of the group pointed out to the other members who kept asking which way was out that "Out is where we go when everyone in the group is finished with their quests." Bless her. I ended up joining her guild.
Then there was the Deadmines run where we too succumbed to generosity and let a lower level mage join us. She would continually pull critters when the priest very clearly asked us to hold up a minute while they restored their mana.
She kept aggroing everything and...get this...tanking. About as well as a mage can tank, that is. As we had both a paladin and a warrior, we asked her to please stop, told her to please stop and then finally got nasty about it. We made it all the way to the ship in an awkward silence. She proceeded to aggro everything on the second deck, wiped the group, then bailed. As with a previous poster, we ended up finishing the instance in excellent form without her "help".
I avoid PUGs whenever possible. Luckily, I belong to a guild that has a great diversity of professions and helpful people who are willing to quest with their guildies. They also speak in complete sentences and use grammar and punctuation.
It's like I've died and gone to heaven.
Feb 2nd 2006 5:58PM And in an odd bit of coincidence, when I logged in last night, someone randomly gave me 8 goblin somethingerother clams (food). They chased me down to give them to me.
I'm not sure if it was because I'm a girl, because I looked hungry or because they made the food, didn't want it to go to waste and I was the first person in their line of sight.
Feb 1st 2006 5:39PM As one of only 7 actual females playing female characters on Uther, I've only been gifted an item once. I helped maintain a heal on a priest soloing an elite dragon and he gave me the plate that it dropped. I was just glad someone was exacting revenge on that which had, an hour earlier, turned me into a fine red mist.
Then again, I play a human paladin who doesn't exactly "work it". My husband plays a female night elf and he gets chatted up all the time. To my knowledge, he hasn't received any freebies. At least that I know of...
Jan 19th 2006 12:35PM I am one of those who has a problem with gold farming, regardless of where they are from. While playing yesterday, I was spammed with whispered advertising from no less than 4 different gold farmers.
On the other side of the coin, I took a player to task uesterday on my server's main chat channel for telling someone to learn how to speak English.
Don't lump all WoW players into the same mold.
