I maxed out first aid purely for the achievement, I always carry with me 20 bandages since the start of this expansion, and yet have to be able to use it. Most of the time raid damage is continued and it's not even possible to bandage anyway.
Yeh I'm not even bothering with alts, don't see any reason. Probably the 500 bandage achi is more important.

Maybe it's because I play with folks who 'don't be an ass' includes 'don't pop things out that make extraneous noises or other distracting whizbangs when it's go time'.

But perhaps this is because by the time I started playing, those things were *real* old hat.


The main problem was that in a 25-man raid piled up to buff, you couldn't figure out who was doing it. So people found it really funny to do it, and then pretend they were mad about it too. But you're right, instant gkick is maybe a bit much :P

Eventually I figured out that you can watch the combat log to see who's dropping them. In retrospect, I should have just written an addon to yell at them.

I used TJH to call out people dropping Mole Machines in raids, since that was a fad in my old guild. I just had it spit out "X opened a portal to hell." in raid chat.

It wasn't a rule, but an officer in our old guild used to yell every time someone looted in combat because apparently she'd configged her action bars or something to be where her loot window popped up and couldn't be bothered changing it. So after a few raids of yelling every time someone looted, it became an unofficial rule on the pretext that if you're looting in combat you're not dps'ing (although most "battlelooting" basically was a case of misclicking on a mob).

We also had a "rule" that you shouldn't use DPS pots (like Destruction pots) because then you might not be able to Health pot if you needed to. Yeah ..... I ignored that one and chainchugged Destro Pots. They certainly weren't complaining that I was giving everyone more mana.

The guy who tried to replace me as a Shadow Priest when I switched to Pally Tank couldn't keep Misery up. Misery was applied every time you cast a dot and lasted longer than the dots did.

We later found out the reason was that he only had one action bar (as in 12 buttons), and he put his dots on different bars and to use them he had to Shift-Up to switch actionbars and then click the button and then Shift-Down to get the next one etc.
To this day, my head still hurts from that explanation.

This pretty much sums up my feelings about that.

Not so much a rule but tradition. When ever anyone gets an achievement the proper response is to congratulate them with a "u sob". This stems back to when they were added in the pre-WotLK patch and everyone who logged on spammed the guild chat with a flood of achievements.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

We have something similar, if a bit more crude, any achievement is greeted with a chrous of 'achievement whore!' or such. There are 2 or 3 people in guild who jostle for most points on Horde on the server so it started with us giving them trouble and now we do it for everyone :)

I miss my old raidleader 2 years ago.
Gnomes were not allowed in our guild.
If any gnomes dared to enter, (classchanges to annoy guildmaster) they had to die instant. It was not allowed to heal/taunt/help gnomes.
