Caught being uber: Elderly couple met at BlizzCon Unfortunately, I don't have the name of the couple, but they were elderly. The lady started playing Warcraft due to her daughter asking her time and time again to play, then the daughter bought and set her up with an account. She met this man in game, and they quickly fell in love. BlizzCon was their honeymoon and for them to recognize me as someone that's a "pillar of the community" was humbling. We compared LFR battle stories and it was so interesting hearing their take on things. It is humbling and honouring that they asked lil' ol' me for a hug. -- Sha of Happiness
Among our other Random Acts this week is a little doggy who's so cute he got his human a resolved game time issue plus an extra snippet of game time. Tail-waggin' good times!
Derp is a lvl 80 DK, twinked. Got in a LFD while I was on my little priest leveling -- suddenly I see that in the meters the DK was pulling 32k DPS ... at level 80, single target. So I inspected and saw that he had a lot of twink gear. We started to talk, and the guy told us that he got tired of progression raiding and decided to make a twink to have some fun. He is now the leader of a WotLK-only raiding guild, when the dungeon finished, he asked for us to stay in the group, and re-queue us.
We run 3 or 4 dungeons in chain, after that everyone had to go and left the group, but he gave us his RealID to contact him later. Next time I log and he was online, he proceeded to invite me to a group and queue as a tank, chaining another several instances. The pattern repeated a couple of times.
After the I got out of the Throne of the Tides and Blackrock Caverns, his DK couldn't do instances with me anymore, so he started to log his mage (Updated) and run several of that old TotT group thru the low-level MoP instances. We queued all as DPS (since we had no tank and he couldn't select it :P), but then during the dungeon he would tell the tank not to worry, he could do it in case it was needed. And encouraged me to go heals (something I didn't want to do given how awful tanks and healers are treated in LFD).
So I want to thank this former elite raider for his attitude towards someone learning (to heal) and leveling. It's nice to see non-elitist people in the community from time to time hehehe. See you around. -- Animaneth, Stormrage (US-Alliance)
He recently learned that another guild on our server had been hacked and their guild bank was ransacked. He decided to spend a day farming mats to put them back on their feet. As he put it, "Time to give back to a community thats given me so much over the years." So, I'd like to nominate Volde of Fates Call for a Random Act of Uberness. -- Volde's Guildie
Caught being uber: Choceh and Ethorne, Argent Dawn (EU-Alliance) I recently created a draenei warrior in all the excitement of WoD's announcement. When using the dungeon finder to do Scarlet Halls, I bumped into two players, Choceh and Ethorne.
After one dungeon we got chatting and ended up farming dungeons from 30-40. We then noticed we were all from Argent Dawn, so we decided to quest together.
We have since made a pact to level together as much as possible. Such a random encounter with friendly and fun players certainly was an uber experience. -- Draklus, Argent Dawn (EU-Alliance)
So, I opened a ticket, and a fantastic GM gave me two days of gametime, all I had to do was include a picture of my dog. Thanks, GM (withholding his name for obvious reasons, he has to be a professional). -- Trair, Bleeding Hollow (US-Alliance)
