    Also my bank alt's guild has three tabs. Yes the third one was 500g. No I haven't regretted it. (Packrat.)

    As does mine! (Have 3 tabs on my bank alt's guild)

    I have half a tab full of recipes that don't sell well. I'm not sure what to do with them.

    I'd probably have at least 2-3 tabs set up on mine, but I really like having my alts guilded for ease of hearing about what's going on. As much as we use vent, a lot of people do ask for/about things in guild chat, and I'd hate to miss out on that. Spur of the moment Karazhan raids, ZA runs, etc.

    Sure, they'd be easy enough to find with a /who, but it's still more effort for people than if I'm just in the guild.

    Now, if only I could have/pay for a "guild bank" for the account regardless of what guild I'm actually in, that'd be awesome.

    Sad: Blacksmithing is only up to 210 on my warrior. I'm not going to have enough money to hit 350 before the expansion.
    Happy: Warrior got his pvp shoulders. All that's left is chest and pants. And two 2h weapons.

    Hate: The frustration of being unable to upgrade gear on what is likely to be my new main because I can't get a fucking ten-man going. Last week I almost got ZA going but we were short one pally tank, and ironically my boyfriend who normally would have gone if I asked was at a wake that night. Last night I tried for Kara but only got like five people. Then later I had to sit there pissed off while six or so of them went to a bear-selling run. We have people in our guild who have been to plenty of other people's bear runs and still haven't gotten theirs, but sure guys, you go sell some random scrub a bear for a mere 3000g. Idiots. I almost said I'd go on my warlock if I could bring my shaman in for Zul'jin, but I didn't want to condone their behavior so I just logged off.

    Do you guys not run other 25mans on off days? It's to the point where we had someone's old buddy reroll shaman, and she went from greens to T6 in Alt Temple. I'm going to lobby hard to bring my druid (who is in T4, at least) next week.

    Alt-gearing 10 mans are dead right now because 1) serious bear runs are trying to get bears, 2a) the market for badge items has tanked, making Badgezan less profitable for T6 mains and 2b) seriously fuck karazhan anyway.

    I think kara is pretty cool but it's a major disappointment, they did a pretty poor job of designing Mehiv's home I thought.

    Hopefully one day they'll implement the replica tower that goes underground, and this time do it justice.

    More cool stuff, more of an attempt to recreate his home.

    Where was the multidimensional library, for example. I mean yeah they had a dining room, and a guest wing, but it just wasn't enough like a home and workplace, and too much like a tower designed to be a series of boss fights.

    Hope: that I can figure out what I want to do with my priest before expansion. He's pretty well-geared for a guy who only really either plays solo or with two other friends, and I've gone on some pug instances and healed really well (despite only switching to disc/holy recently). After I get my SSO neck and s4 gloves, though, I'll be at a loss. I don't really want to arena or BG anymore, and while I like instance runs, I can see myself burning out. Maybe I can try diving into pug heroics, despite possibly being the worst idea I could have.

    Nope we've never taken an alt to BT, they still drag everyone through on their mains almost every week. Part of the reasoning is that people fuck around and are slow when we have all mains, so alts would make it even worse. But people fuck around and are slow because they're bored as fucking hell and everything gets sharded except maybe one rare drop and something off of Illidan. Maybe if we rotated in alts people wouldn't be so bitchy about BT. I quit raiding until WLK anyway, got sick of certain people and Sunwell, so my shaman doesn't exactly need gear for anything but easier leveling/instancing while leveling.

    The thing is, I'm REALLY REALLY BORED. I have a month of.. nothing... to do. And having a character in shitty gear frustrates me to no end when I know that a mere one or two more Kara runs would fill in the gaps just fine.

    Our BT run is a weekly compromise between "ugh it's raid time and we only have 20 people" and "ugh it's BT I don't want to go to that again" and "ugh do we have enough geared/experienced people to even do this?"

    We're lucky in that we get to take the raidlock of an early week fun-run-ish BT, so now we get to come in with Naj/Supremus dead. We also have a pretty large pool of people who either quit the main raid, were formerly in a raid that blew up or topped out in T5, so just filling slots isn't that much of a problem. It's doing BB/RoS/Mother with that undergeared/inexperienced group of people that slows things down.

    Still, in 3.0 everything will have 30% less health, which ought to make it easier to steamroll everything. I don't know if you're still an officer over there, but I would definitely argue in favor of bringing in alts (especially if they're reasonably geared) as a way of keeping people motivated.

    I love the look of kara. I also have a major hardon for castles so maybe that helps. Also I've only been there once and not driven to hate it by going there every week for a million years.

    Though, half the raid was ported outside on Nightbane then after they died I too was magically ported down there and got raped by skeletons. Crazy shit like that after a year of the instance being out kinda sucks. I blame the rogue since he said that always happens to him. bad mojo.

    I'm still an officer, but I don't want to suggest anything of the sort, because it will be seen as purely selfish, I'm sure. At least by one person who I don't want to deal with. I've been hoping someone else would bring it up. I'm not the only person planning on rerolling for the expansion, though I think I am the only person rerolling from DPS to healer and not the other way around. Maybe after 3.0 and we can see just how much easier things are.

    Hate: I guess I made the wrong decision two years ago. It was down to playing my feral druid as resto or playing my warlock in BC. I went with the warlock. Not to say I didn't have fun, but there were many nights I wished I could magically respec healer to get a raid going. And then I'd have all my achievements on one character instead of spread out to two and soon three....

    Hate: FUCK You Blizzard! I try to do lowbie quests to get the loremaster title. on the PTR server i find that i need 380(730 total) quests in Kalimdor and 150(700 total) quests in EK to finish the old school content(as alliance).

    Do you know how hard thats going to be? especialy since they all are "low level" now and dont show up on the mini map. They could at least add an option to let you see them if you want, Its not like its a big programing task. Put it in as an option in the interface options: want to see low level quests y/n.

    Then I read that Horde only has to do 700 quest in Kalmidor and 550 in EK. RAAAAAAAGHHHHH!

    Second Hate: Honor points are not being reset after all. Wee we get to keep our tokens and points come WoLK. Thanks blizz, after I spent all my tokens on mounts, cause it was use it or lose it time. Pick a path and stick with it would ya?

    Happy: Still got 40k honor points tho
