He used to but that got changed in 5.1 or 5.2.
You could bubble it, though.

I purchased a microtransaction in a game, that wasn't related to making the game easier to play (stash space).
You should all be proud of me for doing this, since I was such a staunch "anti micreotransaction" type of person for so long.

So this is more a "success for the community as a whole and the business of micro transactions" thing? :D

I don't even care about whether it's "right" or not in a game with a subscription anymore, at this point if I could buy bank storage tabs in WoW (not just goddamn bag slots, but actual tabs) I would be throwing my money at Blizzard. Money dipped in bitterness and a slight dab of resentment, but money still.

My banks and bags and storages are BRIMMING with transmog stuff. I've thrown out anything I can re-farm from a dungeon or early raid, and just kept things that are relatively hard or actually impossible to re-acquire. Still don't have nearly enough space. :(

I normally purchase the $20 pack of points. That's 200 points.

Stash Tabs, are 6 more tabs for 175 points, but you can catch them on sale for far less.
Premium Stash tabs, which allow you to name them, and change their color are 200 points for 6. I purchased one pack of these on sale, as I use them as "headers" for the areas of my stash. Currency, For Sale, Flasks, Uniques, Gems, Vendor trash, are all labeled, and then have other tabs behind them. All told, I have purchased ~24 extra tabs, but that's because I'm a packrat.

This weekend, I purchased the Seraph Wing Skin for a skill that I use, because it's freaking awesome, and I bought the Ivory Weapon Glow. Those two transactions set me back ~165 points total, with the Skin being the bulk of the points.

I was really just trying to find a way to continue to support the game, without purchasing the supporter packs, since nothing in the supporter pack interests me. You pay ~10 bucks more for the basic pack, and get a forum title, a "back piece (fancy shield that stays static on your back), a digital copy of the soundtrack, and a "skin" for your portals. I don't care about any of that.

Now, if I could save the cash to get in on the next round of "design a unique" supporter packs, I'd do that. But they are normally $1,000 +, and limited supply. I'm just not going to drop that kind of cash on a game as an impulse buy.


Still having a blast in the game, even if my "main" (can you have mains in an ARPG?) is feeling a little boring to play. I've got the spec worked out pretty frekkin' great, and at this point, I really only press Q, or W, depending on if it's single target, or AoE, and then either 1-3 are health flasks, and 4-5 are my armor flasks. Once I get back into running challenging content, that will change for sure, but I'm trying to stockpile the "hard" maps, for when I get more levels, and I'm looking for more XP. I figure at this point, i'll keep running the intro maps until I run out, or hit 80, whichever comes first.

After multiple sub 15% wipes on Siegecrafter 10H on Wednesday and then losing our second tank due to him leaving for a vacation from Thursday till this coming Sunday, we finally managed to score a kill last night.

We were pretty worried starting on Sunday seeing as one of our main belt DPS is our 3rd tank (544 ilvl), and previous pulls showing us that our DK wasnt able to get the belts consistently, it was seeming unlikely. Spent Sunday relearning while they both learned new roles, to finally push through and score the kill after something stupid like 330 wipes. (Roster consistency/impacts of internet issues causing a chunk of those - but that's for the frustrations topic :p)

Bring Wrathion a Bolt of Wool, a Hillman's Cloak, Fine Thread and 10 clumps of Yeti Fur. He then knits you a cloak

Finally seen Garrosh go down. It was only on Flex unfortunately as I got benched during normal kill (which we got before the flex one ... go figure) but nice to finally see the cut scene.

You are done with the hard part, the remaining questline is actually enjoyable and you should be sporting orange pixels within a day :)
