Server Down? Spam those servers that are up then.
Ah, the time honored traditions never die, do they?
Is your server down? Go roll a toon on a server that is up and whine, befoul, and otherwise stink the trade channel up with your incessant yapping. Yeah, yeah, we all have 70's elsehwhere. Subject Matter Experts the lot of us.
Or play an alt that is on a server that is up.
Frightened, level 6 Warlock, was on a server that is up. My other 19 characters are on 2 servers that remain down. I *hate* when that happens! ;)
Which let me run Frightened up to Silvermoon and do the Blood Elf quests. "I'm here to help," he'll announce in Tranquillen.
Plus he took up herbalism and mining and cooking and first aid. Time sinks all.
P.S. Real nice job on the patch there, Blizzard. Real nice. A little over half the servers couldn't be brought back from regular maintenance. And the servers that are up... lag city. Five minutes of dead realm, but the chat channel? Joy. It's not like you nerfed the Shamans again. That usually goes so flawless. Tuning instances for those five guys over in Europe? And the rest of us suffer for it? GG.
