No, this is not a gold selling advert, and I'll start by confessing that I'm a voyeur.
Do you want help with your game? Do you want people to have a chance at knowing something about you before replying to your questions or analyzing your replies to others' questions?
Please, for the love of gnomes, if you're not describing your situation in detail put an armory link in your post or even better, for general use, in your Wowhead profile.
Like some stickys say, the more we know, the better we can help you. An armory link for the alert observer tells such many things about your character. Go ahead, check mine and then determine whether I can answer a question regarding Reliquary of Souls phase 2 or not.
One thing that irritates me with people who were smart enough to list their characters including lowbie alts and the realms that they're playing on... That's great, chap, but sorry, I can't keep track of whether your particular server out of the hundreds that exist is in EU or the US (or Asia) and while I'm prepared to check your character in the armory my patience has a limit that's exceeded by firing up all WoW regional websites, and trying to find your particular server in the realm lists, AND then constructing an armory link to your character. Please, please, please put an armory link somewhere, it's so much easier for all of us.
And yes, I know that people switch main characters. Why not make a link to that one in your profile? Write a short line on how you play, perhaps why. The more we know, the better we can help you.
Formatting your profile also helps a lot when trying to find out stuff about you - this is something we do for YOUR sake, so you help yourself by helping us by making your profile more readable. Don't know how to format your profile or posts in general? This link
will help you, you'll have use for it, I promise!
There are those that use the armory solely for bashing other peoples' gear. This is folly. The best example I've seen was a thread on the state of endgame on the wow-europe forums where a hunter with some pieces of gear from Serpentshrine Cavern was bashing a rogue for having early Karazhan gear, and adding a poorly written insult along the lines of "omg u kara nub i bet you never saw a raid u know nothing of endgame stop qqing". The funny thing (apart from a person raiding SSC telling others they know nothing about endgame for the more seasoned of us)? The rogue was exalted with Brood of Nozdormu
(the faction associated with AQ40) and was still using one part from the Bonescythe (tier 3)
set acquired in Naxxramas. He was also exalted with Hydraxian Waterlords
(the faction associated with Molten Core). No raiding experience, indeed. The hunter was, conversationally, neutral or hated with those factions, and barely scraping honored with Argent Dawn.
Sincerely, the dude trying to help you with your game
