An 80 huntard friend was going to run me through DM (weren't we just talking about that?) and a few lvl30ish hordies thought they were baddesses for tearing up that lobie ali town.
They were flagged when my 80 bro showed up...it was quick...I was paying more attention to chatting at the time then what was going on around me...next thing I know I have the Honorable Kill achievement and a fist full of auto-grats from the guild
I don't judge people on their gear, I look at their professions, rep and achievements as well, it's all about enjoying the game.
I don't charge for VC runs, call it my charitable contribution to the game. I just show up in Westfall, gather up those interested, help them with the Defias Traitor quest if needed, then burn through VC.
My rogue is alch/enchant, priest is tailor/herb and druid is miner/jc.
My rogue farms cloth, priest tailors it, rogue de's it.
Rogue makes pots, and chants all BOE for the others, priest supplies herb, druid supplies gems. Works well.
The real money is playing the AH. Buy out entire stocks of certain ores/herbs/pots on raid nights = cha ching.

I d/c'd 5 times in 2 minutes.
So....I read up on what kind of tanks/healers people preferred to have in their group, brought an enhance shammy to lvl30ish...then tried a feral druid to 20ish...and finally fell in love with my Retardadin who is sitting at lvl74 patiently waiting for me to log back in one day and continue the PWNage
But...you know...suppose I don't want to spend hours and hours every day for a few weeks to collect 5K for my epic flyer....I do my dailies, I sell goods and services....I just want to cut down the waiting time so I can go do other things like Sons of Hidor quests...so I pay a visit to my friends over at MMO...a pre-paid credit card number and an hour later, I have my flyer
By the time I hit 77 on my DK, I had enough gold for the epic riding skill, epic mount, and cold weather flying.
1. Avoid buying anything from the AH except bags. Especially consumables.
2. Auction all the cloth, meat, and BOE greens that you get. Enchanters buy BOE greens, regardless of the stats, to get skill ups. If they don't enchant it, then they DE it for a shard that's worth 3-15g. Meat is profitable for cooks when they can use it to create food with stat bonuses, and the demand never goes away. Cloth is an obvious one.
3. Be a miner or herbalist and auction the raw materials. Prospectors pay a lot for unsmelted ore, often more than the corresponding bars. Lazy miners also buy ore for skilling up.
4. Whenever possible, choose staves and 2-handed weapons when there are no upgrades in the quest reward list, they vendor for the most.
5. I ran stratholme about 8 times, so some gold grinding but not much.
I'm sure there are better strategies, but this is what worked for me.

The only thing that matters, is that you enjoy the game.
I farm because I love the challenge, I'm flagged so itsa farmin' and a gankin' for me. There's nothing better than ruining some dirtbag hordes gaming experience, than camping his/her punk ass and forcing them off my farm.
I have BC rep flyers, Reins of the Onyx Netherwing Drake & Cenarion War Hippogryph, they work for me.

I think game addiction is a very serious issue. When I was in high school and college, I became hooked on Everquest (and later WoW). As a result, I didn't socialize nearly as much as I should have, and to this day my social skills are lacking. Additionally, in college I started playing computer games so much that I would frequently miss class. I became very depressed and nearly dropped out, and thought of suicide.
Maybe this is a chicken-or-egg type of problem...I don't know. I remember playing lots of computer games and not socializing, then becoming depressed...but maybe my depression led to the computer games and not socializing. At any rate, as soon as I stopped playing WoW, my life definitely improved.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

I've never been into WoW that much at all, my roomate in college plays WoW all the time, and it is interesting to watch, but I personally prefer LARPing just because I feel more into the RP / fighting - especially with the boffer combat.
