where would you have to go with the crate of coconuts? and why?

I'd take them down to the corner of my street and make and sell a variety of coconut producsts. Such as (but not limited to) coconut milk drinks, coconut cream pie, coconut shrimp, and if you just wanted plain old coconut meat then you could have that too! Why? Because I can, that's the only reason why I do things. There is no such thing as reason or purpose :P

Why won't you roll a character on Shatted Hand?  Noooo, stay at your RP server :P ;).  Just kidding...

What's your favorite WoW class?

It's not a RP server, it's just a PVE I don't get into the whole roleplaying part of MMO's ;)


What's your favorite WoW class?

Well, I love my level 60 Paladin... but I'm having a lot of fun with my Hunter and Rouge. While I occasionally play my Mage, I have to say I don't like getting killed so easy :P

I also have a Warrior and a Warlock but I don't like them very much. And as you can see I guess I really don't have a favorite, just whatever I feel like playing. ;)

Hunters and mages are my favorite classes to play.  My main is a mage and my alt is a hunter.  I've heard rogues are the most fun, but they are, by far, the most overpopulated class on a lot of servers.  On shattered hand, one out of every two characters are rogues.  If you're a rogue, good luck getting into a good guild like Drama...heh, you'd probably not even be able to get into Skyfang!  :P

Well, I'm guildless anyways so I don't really care ;)

Plus, I've never heard of those 2 guilds so I don't care about that either hehe
