Let's see..... Melee Hunter? Check. Wiping raids on my warrior due to forgetting Def Stance? Check. Raiding with a Fishing Pole? Check. 2h Enh shaman? Check. (T_T)
I'm embarrassed to admit that...
... I have punched a Gnome once. No particular reason. I was just having a bad day.
never knew you could eat and drink at the same time.
helpful loading screen tip was helpful!
I'm embarrassed that it's so hard for me to start using macros with modifiers. I just recently started using mouseover macros, really helps a lot with some spells. Glad that I am a quick learner... :3
I don't rememeber exactly when but at some point during a ICC25 heroic run, a trial member found his voice on Ventrilo for the first time and pointed out to 23 others that the holy paladin (me) was wearing a fishing hat - for 7. fucking. bosses.
I was level 17 or 18 on my original warlock in vanilla before I realized stacking strength and using my staff as a melee weapon was inefficient.
Back when I leveled my first character, a hunter, I always equipped the weapons that looked coolest. You would often see me with weapons that had no stats but procs.
I still save all my CDs while I do dailies or when I level alts - I simply don't use them unless I'm killing boss-like npcs
Hmm, cant remember many but.. It was back in vanilla and i was about to ding lvl 40 on my warrior and i knew the mount/training cost a lot of gold, which i didnt have... so i actually bought cloth off of ah, made it into bandages and sold the bandages to a vendor.. It actually was profitable but prolly the most slowest way to make gold, but in the end i got the mount.
Now that i think about it i wonder why the fuck i did it like that.
Also everytime i did an instance in vanilla, i was tanking it with a 2H in arms spec every single time until like lvl 50~.
I got a warrior to 55 struggling and dieng, made a DK then found out about talent points. :/
This thread looks like the random tells from "sha of guilt" you get in HoF.
I admit back in early vanilla i discovered there was something called "Voidwalker" ...at lvl 35.At that time I was saying to myself "Man,this game is really hard" because I just spammed shadowbolt and just 2 mobs aggroed at the same time ripped me appart.Once I was able to get the Voidwalker...now this is a completely different thing!!!.
The Noobness did not end there,I realized I could get,at that lvl,another pet called succubus.For doing that you needed to talk to a guy in south Barrens.Being a human warlock the only way I knew to get there was getting to Wetlands to get the ship that take you to Theramore....so I and my voidwalker started walking north from Redridge Mountains to Burning Steppes.I think theres no need to say how many times I died lol...one bajillion at least and then a guildie whispered me some magical words "Deeprum Tram!! you naabb!!".
And then after 400km on foot from IF to Theramore i,again,realized there was a ship from Stranglethorn(flight path there already unlocked) that put me really really close to the guy for the succubus quest in south Barrens.
It does not end there.Some guy in a forum told me the only spec that worked was SM/Ruin (30/0/21) and since I liked crits and big crits I started putting point in Destruction.Smart move specially when my attack rotation consisted in dotting the big bad mob and then using the wand while the vw and the dots killed him(dots didnt crit back then)...without a single point in affliction yet.I think from 15 to 35 I used shadowbolt no more than 5-6 times.
Maybe when I was playing my rogue till the end of TBC and not using SnD on raiding because I thought it's useless....yeah
To be honest i had no clue that frost bomb deals more dmg if the target is frozen (pet nova/mage own nova). Is that really true? Haven´t done that on my mage :P..
Also, been playing paladin since TBC released and when i was doing ZA timed one day i noticed this spell that reduces dmg taken and makes you immune to death for some seconds. Had no idea there was a spell in prot that was called Ardent Defender. Everytime i saw other paladins using it by /yell Ardent Defender is up i always went to my spellbook looking for that spell but i just couldn´t find it. One day i checked my talent tree and noticed a spell i hadn´t specced, it was ardent defender..Can´t understand how i could be that blind.
I thought Warriors were the one that had blood lust, when we raided MC. I mean. It sounds like a warrior ability <.<
Found out when i complained to a warrior in whisper about him failing blood lust >.>
Everyone has so much to say
They talk talk talk their lives away
When I first started playing (Feb 2006) and hit level 10, a friend told me about talent points, so I picked one (improved wands, probably...) and then completely forgot about them until he reminded me about them again, around level 30... Even then, I didn't really understand why they were so important and kept forgetting to place my talent points
Today, I'm embarrassed to admit that I once again am in a position where I don't really care or know about my talents. I haven't had the time to read about them, or try different "specs". I mainly picked proc-talents rather than ones you have to activate because I'm likely to forget them anyway. Yeah, I haven't raided in a couple of years and kind of lost my edge since then...
I'm also embarrassed to admit that I've ALWAYS preferred "equip:"-trinkets rather than "use:"-trinkets for the same reason as above. I just forget.

Started playing Death Knight as main so I could start soloing stuff in MoP. Primarily played Blood, and Frost as my rarely used off-spec.
In Cataclysm, Unholy Presence was the way to go for Frost DPS.
When the class changes hit with 5.0, I didn't bother to read up again on presences and just assumed it would stay the same. Was my off-spec so didn't care much.
I did crappy DPS up until 5.1 and just couldn't understand why... my priorities on abilities was good, was using all my CD's when needed, diseases always up etc.
Then I see a DK standing around in Frost Pres. Then I Google "mop frost dk presence". Damn, that was embarrassing.
I really should have read farther than rotation/glyphs on the quick start guide...
