The Truth Siren:
Normal is right where it should be in difficulty. Heroic should be increased slightly in difficulty.
BC grew in sub numbers more than any other period in wow. Not convenient enough for your sorry argument? Too bad,so sad! With the arterial bleed of subs the fastest it's ever been, it shows that no matter how easy things get, it isn't enough to keep people.
And I did the Wintersaber quest before they changed it to match the raptor quest. The only way I found to make that bearable was to do it at the same time as I ground out Timbermaw rep and to time my runs (I got it to 15 minutes/cycle for an hour or two).
Anzu and Ashes. They are my favorite mounts in the game, even still, so I farmed and farmed and farmed all of my characters. 4 Anzu, 2 Ashes. I still feel bitter about it.
Here's another discussion on wasted items, along the same lines as the OP: anyone have any items they regret vendoring before transmog? I have too many to name, but I mostly regret the Undead Slaying set I got during the end of BC.
I had a full set on my shaman and rogue that I know of, and I think I had a set on my priest. I DISTINCTLY recall vendoring it on the shaman and the rogue to save room, though.
At least the parts I had on my hunter (3/4, missing the chest) survived for transmog.
The other thing I wish I hadn't vendored was my paladin's Halberd of Smiting. At least there'll be models of it in 5.2.
Oh and I also paid 25k for the Drake of the northwind drake that took aprox 101 runs from a hunter friend, I barely even use it in addition I did 505 runs normal stonecore literally yes I tallied that BS to get that drake as well I had to duel box a friends hunter because every single friend of my hunter was like NO MOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE so one let me borrow his account. I also randomly gave a sandstone drake to someone for free yes.
<.< too much stories
Bought 496 bracers from AH for 30k (trash BoE) which got replaced by 502 heroic BiS one next reset. Nice way to waste gold. Now it's irrelevant, I have near half a million left and prefer having good RNG over bad one but here's more wasteful example:
In my nooby times in march (2 or 3 months into WoW) i bought 2x pyrium spellward (365 ilevel agility sword) cos i loved the look of swords on my back. Didn't knew that HoT heroics with 378 ilevel gear existed. That was when I barely had 10k gold on me and spent almost all of it on those swords.
100K gold on Ashes of Al'ar.
