    I sent them an email back saying "better luck next time". :P

    Aside from having not played WoW in months and months, I also have never done any gold buying, and do not particularly care if my account actually does become disabled.

    Anyone else get "fished" before?

    I think they go look at people on the armoury and take a shotgun approach to emails in a hope to get one of the good ones

    I have got fish emails on my ebay email for certain things to a point I had to kill it and wait it out till they forgot about it then reuse that email

    I don't think you get can get email addresses from the armory.

    It occurs to me now, you might be able to crawl WoW-specific sites, but the ones I checked offhand have limited protections against crawling (such as showing less detail if you're not logged in).

    Oh wow the Armory has a lot of awesome statistics.

    Largest Hit Delt: 21648.

    I miss you Black Wing Lair I really really do.

    On another note is questing the fastest way to level? I can only seem to quest when I get into a groove for it and any other time I have no desire to quest. Which is really disappointing because this Mage deserves to get to 80. First character and all.

    EDIT: That Damage score isn't from BWL. They don't have the stats from Vanilla I forgot, dammit.

    They could have made all of his loot table futurama references, like they did with James Brown references on Bronjahm.

    I personally do this by either becoming a furbolg (alliance only) or drinking pygmy suckerfish concoctions to become a gnome. If anyone asks I tell them its a new healing form that came with the new patch. I'm overgeared for random heroics so no one seems to care.

    Except for the one tank who left because i refused to take my chef hat off and go into tree form. :P

    I think the folks at Blizzard are really reaching a bit too much for their cultural references.

    I think it's one thing to pepper a few easter eggs in here and there, but when it becomes the norm for everything to be a reference, it loses it's luster.

    If you want to do unarmed, go find and do this quest:

    http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=3454

    You get an equippable quest item that does not disappear after the quest. It looks like a staff, but skills up unarmed and does zero damage. Find a level one boar, unequip all your gear with durability and right-click. You'll skill up to 400 unarmed and defense in like half an hour.

    Edit: Also, how geared do you need to be for a pug group doing ICC trash rep grind?

    I didn't think you could skill up that final point unless you were fighting something level 80 or higher? Or does it just take like an hour.
