Mercifully... and it is a small mercy, the "Loot" cards only seem to unlock cosmetic upgrades. I suppose it'd be a bit shockingly unfair if you got the "Massive Epix Axe of Deathtoeverything" card and it'd allow people to effectively buy epics but even cosmetic upgrades are sort of... enticing.

Of course, they don't elaborate on that at all, cosmetic could be things that don't affect how you play in PvP or how much damage you deal, take or heal. If there are pets, mounts or tabards in there I'm still a goner.

I think the day has finally arrived when the US Government needs to call off the War on Drugs and start dosing their water supply with a cocktail of hard narcotics.

Y'know, you might not notice a change in many WoW players if you turned them into obsessive zombies :)

Why don't you let me look after your money? :)

Because unlike my hypothetical stockbroker I would give money to if I had large wads of it to spare after my excessive lifestyle took its chunk, the returns YOU provide do not typically appreciate in value and furthermore, if I scatter any more cards or books or models around the house cartographer is going to gut me like a fish.
