Jun 6th 2008 7:44PM I have to throw this in because no one else ever mentions this, but I work for the fraud department of a major credit card company.
The accounts that aren't stolen/hijacked from legitimate players are purchased using stolen credit cards. These people have to pay for the accounts they don't steal and the transfers somehow to get gold from one server to another, and when I have some 89 year old woman on the phone and have to explain to her why there are 18 $25 charges from Blizzard/world of warcraft on her credit card statement I just want to strangle all the people out there who dont' think it's a big deal to buy gold.
You're stealing money from other people's credit cards. And because I work for that company and we sometimes have to eat the cost, you're stealing money from ME and my family.
May 5th 2008 8:55PM This year's New Year's eve party. My friend who hosted it has a very large and diverse group of friends, and for some of us all we had in common was knowing him .... and playing wow.
We had a nice group discussion on different server AH economic factors and server in-jokes. ("So what do they use in trade chat on your sever? On Draka it's the Giantstalker's belt")
Nov 13th 2007 4:17AM I've always had a slightly different sense of humor, but I love the horde guild Chocolate Milk Shark
Oct 1st 2007 2:58PM I personally love the Depeche Mode quests "Everything Counts in large amounts" in the blasted lands and "Precious and Fragile things need special handling" on Azuremyst isle.
There are lots of little things all over that are just silly. I was on my rogue in the Burning Steppes the other day and an NPC emote/yelled "Oh no, run for hills! Wait! We already in hills!"
Ogre humor for ya.
Aug 27th 2007 9:23PM Draka went down several times sunday night. Kind of weird; was in shadowlabs with a group, and we were in the middle of a trash pull when it crashed, two of my teammates died and logged back in the graveyard, one stayed alive but was put back at the beginning of the instance and the instance was reset, and two of us logged back to find ourselves in the inn, with our hearth on cooldown at 40% life.

Jul 23rd 2007 3:44AM Most of the orcs in Shattered halls seem to have weapons that are grown out of their arms, since are not able to be disarmed. I can see this guy coming at me, visibly beating on me with a sword in one hand and a sheild in the other but when I try "Disarm" I get the error "target is not holding a weapon"
The hell he isn't!
Apr 11th 2007 1:31PM Ok, I was already chuckling at the beginning with the spinning mounts, but by the time they got to the pirates I was laughing pretty hard. My coworkers already think I'm nuts at least. thanks for the link: bring on the funny machinima!
Apr 11th 2007 11:52AM As someone who came late to the game it makes it more fun to us, as well. My main is slowly climbing from 63 to 70 and if everyone already knew all the tricks of how every class was played... well, it would suck to be the new kid.
Mar 30th 2007 10:55AM We have a pretty much adult only, family friendly guild. But we do have one member who is 13 years old. That person's parents are also in the guild, and they play together a lot.
