The Daily Grind: When's the last time an MMO made you feel heroic?

DC Universe Online - Four heroes
Heroism in MMOs is a tricky thing. Most games cast us as some sort of cosmic fulcrum, but then most games also ask us to take a time out from saving the world in order to collect a few thousand rat tails or kill a boss who has already been defeated by a thousand other players.

Action combat MMOs can sometimes turn these trivial tasks into quasi-heroic moments, at least for me. Just the other day I was running yet another daily instance in DC Universe Online, but the game's nifty combos and niftier animations elevated what's normally a by-the-numbers armor grind into something reasonably exciting.
