Breakfast Topic: What WoW title would you choose in real life? {WoW}

Jan 10th 2012 10:59AM Am I seriously the only one here who would fancy the "Jenkins" title?

I don't like ostentatious status-quo exhibition, not in real life, not in game either.
My car has to be cool for me, not for my neighbor or anyone, I bought expensive wristwatch because I felt I deserve it at that time but you probably would never see me wearing it, unless you are my wife, family or very close friend.
My business card doesn't state my education or professional achievements - there is my name, company, department, phone and email.
My company e-mail doesn't say more information either.
If we are doing business together, you would know who I am. You don't need to know I have PhD. If we met in school facility you don't need to know my rank in the company I work in.

From all the titles, and I am pretty sure I don't even know about some that exist in WoW, Jenkins for me is the only one that does not try to ramp your respect and credibility. It doesn't say you spent days completing dailies, fought a big boss in big raid group or was very thorough with collecting/sampling or what have you.
It simply says you like to have fun, you appreciate a god laugh and yes - when you come to the situation you can't stand any longer to be in - you will just "jenkins it", expecting a failure but there is still a small hope for success, but you just jump right in there.

Breakfast Topic: How lazy are you? {WoW}

Dec 28th 2011 9:48AM lazy? those people who are buying haris pilton's bags for 3000g of AH because one trip to shattrah is apparently worth less than 2k ;).

The Daily Quest: 4.3 impressions and more {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2011 2:41PM I play WoW only since end of August, so recently I had plenty of noob moments. To pick the epic - besides the little like (hey, using shift or alt while viewing a gear item is so much easier to compare the items etc.), my biggest noob moment was when I visited AH while levelling my first alt at level 40. For the second time. And that was my first ragequit. I was so pissed at myself, I didn't log on for 2 days after.

I spent the first month on trial account, and during that time I visited Auction House only once - in Darnassus. Hey, I can view the auctions, I can't use it. And anyway, nothing special there (I was level 14 Draenei Hunter at that time).
Never ever I visited AH again until few weeks later - until recently, I was a loner - besides few random players, I met while on quests - and that was the trigger which brought me to buy the battle chest - meeting fellow players in the quiet places of Azeroth, one or two quick greetings "Hey, are you doin the quest XY? yeah, let's do it together" - so for me WoW was my fortress of solitude. Except Darnassus (I don't like Exodar very much) I didn't even know about Ironforge or SW until my late 30's levels,
rarely I joined random dungeon, or a BG, but most of the time, I was travelling through Kalimdor on my own, enjoying the quiet time. Didn't have to talk to anyone - as oppose to my IRL where as a manager of IT department - I am always in a meeting or on the phone. And then I reached level 40. And didn't have the 40g to buy my 100% riding. I had 20g, overall not more than 50g earned - 30g spent on vendor armor and other items. One of the few wow friends offered to just give me the 20g I was short, saying "it's really nothing", but I didn't accept. At the time, 20g was a HUGE amount of gold for me. I didn't do dailies - why you ask? I didn't know about them.
I had mining and skinnin as profesions - my rough estimate is I vendored, for few golds, around 2000g worth of ores and leathers comparing to selling it in AH.
And then the same friend (Hey Neread of Dentarg, didn't see you for a few months!) brought me to Ironforge. And then to SW. (another noob moment - for 2 days I though SW is just downtown of Ironforge (since it was connected with subway).
And I visited AH in dwarwen. The inn in Dwarven is my home since that day and I always feel uncomfortable to log off from the gime for longer time and not heartstone to Dwarven beforehand).
And I just was curious - is the AH still the lame place without any items usable for me?
And I saw the prices of leather. And of ores and bars. That day, I made my first 100g. In a week I made my first 1000. Then I made it to steady income of 300 a day. Then 500. And so on..
Even today I am angry at myself for the lost days of grinding few silvers and being HAPPY having 20g..
