I remember the moment I joined the WOW TBC Gold TBC on the laughing skull. There were 3 primary participants who spoke in trade chat. I joined the convo and began talking about how I couldn’t pay for flying. One of the players offered me enough gold to buy a plane and mount.
As well, a buddy and I spent many hours running across the ocean of orgrimmer with ankhs , and battling in the fatigue zone, trying to get to GM island. We got the closest possible. The corpses were not able to be brought back , so we filed a GM ticket. The GM simply ported to us, said "Why" and cheap Burning Crusade Classic Gold then rezzed.
