I don't necessarily buy that "empty world" hypothesis. I would have done the rep grinds with or without epic rewards, just for the achievements. And in fact, rather than grinding them out for 2+ hours a day in the first few weeks, I would have focused on the one or two I wanted most urgently and spread that time out over a much longer period of "real" time. Rather than being done with them in a month and a half, I might've taken 3 months to finish them all up, doing a few dailies a day. If anything, what gives the world activity are things like the Ironpaw daily, the rare spawns, or the achievements that require you to do dailies in interesting ways. I'm working on them, bit by bit, on Theck. It's keeping me out in the world even though I'm exalted with everyone, simply because I want to chip away at those achievements.

And it works without burning me out because the time investment is small - I might do Tillers dailies, Shado-Pan (for an achievement), or August Celestials, but that's about it. I can stomach 30-45 minutes of daily "chores," as long as I feel like I'm working towards something I want. The 2+ hour daily grind every day for the first month or two was fairly exhausting, and almost burned me out on this expansion, which is saying something. I haven't felt that overwhelmed or tired of the game, ever, including Vanilla WoW (though, to be fair, I had a lot more free time back then, so it's not entirely a fair comparison).

Exactly the same, I've pretty much given up on dailies of any kind at the moment, despite 'needing' to finish the reps I got so sick of them I've been doing non WoW things instead in the 2 hours I had been spending on them all.

Seeting:
Bank project presentation meeting.
A Cell phone goes off with a old tone ringtone... you know the trim-trim?
Nothing unusual but a third party contracted resource sudently goes into frenzy mode and start clawing in his suit trying to get to the cell...
Everyone goes silent because this guy in in panic, and everyone is looking: Why in hell is this guy panicking? it's just a call...
As the guy finaly gets his cell and as he is about to press mute... a voice comes out from the Ringtone:

Oh noo, haha! :lol:
I never understood why people would want ringtones like that.

I've been using the boss battle theme from Final Fantasy VII for ages now. To most people it just sounds like any other ringtone, and then there's the rare "thumbs up" approving look from random strangers that actually recognize it. ^^

An acquaintance actually had Bloody Tears as his ringtone for quite a while -- he was genuinely surprised when I recognized it.

Apparently, he had gone years with it without anyone identifying the tune.

I'm a big fan of Battle on the Big Bridge (I think that's the name...the Gilgamesh theme song). It's one of my favorite ringtones.

I totally hate ringtones. Phone is on vibrate only, for everything.

Actual ringtones kind of annoy me (for myself, not necessarily on others), but my alarm clock is the FFX-2 theme song. (Shut up Sab - I love the music AND the game!) Of course, I insisted we use that as our "walk down the aisle" music at our wedding ceremony, so now, every morning when it goes off, Invis goes "it's time to get married!" lol

I joked with a friend the other night that it doesn't sound the same without the constant beeping of the low health warning.

For a long time, my ring tone was the Everclear cover of 867-5309. My "tone" for text messages is the sound of morse code. I find it humorous at least.

+1 internet to Invis! :D

I also use the classic FFVII victory fanfare, every now and then someone does a double take and looks around slightly surprised when it goes off, it's like a gamer alert :)

Had someone at work who used to use the Stargate theme. I think I may have been the only person there who recognised it.
