The Classifieds: Patch notes keep rolling


If you haven't seen them yet, check out Mr. McCurley's masterful retelling of the 4.0.6 patch notes. The upcoming release of this patch helps remind us all that we're a little more than a month into Cataclysm. How are you doing in the new content? Have you killed any bosses? Is everyone level 85?

The important thing to remember here is that everyone moves at their own pace. If your guild isn't downing bosses left and right, don't panic. Most people aren't. If you're a new guild, heavy on melee, lacking experienced raid leaders, have a weird raid composition, or any other of a billion things, don't worry. Focus on enjoying the game and just keep moving forward. Patch notes will keep rolling, you'll keep playing, and we'll all get through it together.

Random Acts of Uberness

It's when another player lights up your night with precise play, a wicked sense of humor or unexpected generosity that your login becomes something to remember. Share your Random Acts of Uberness with Keep things brief (150 words or less, please), and be sure to list everyone's character names and home realms or battlegroup.

We've been running a little dry on Random Acts of Uberness lately. I actually suspect that the evil email dragon has eaten more than a few messages. If you've encountered a person who made your day shine, drop us a mail at

Faelyci of <Forest of Oblivion> After staying up past my bed time, spending way too much gold leveling my tailoring, I put up two Hyjal Expedition Bags on the AH to recover some of my expenses. The next day, I smiled to see that they had sold, but when I opened my mail I found that I had put them up for 4 gold 95 silver each instead of 495 gold as I had intended.

Then I got an in-game mail from Faelyci containing both my bags. This kind draenei shaman saw that I had made a simple mistake on the AH and rescued my mispriced bags. Her simple kindness, cheerful note, and willingness to spend 10 gold and few minutes time to help out another player make her uber in my book. Thank you so much, Faelyci! -- Rylka

Madyia of Auchindoun Our guild group landed in heroic Stonecore the other night and we were grouped with Madyia as a healer. The first two bosses were easy, but then came Ozruk. After breaking ourselves upon his body several times, repairing, and wiping several more times, we started to get worried in Vent that Madyia might leave. I felt horrible because most of the wipes were directly attributable to me: the tank. Ozruk's AE abilities were frequent and unforgiving, but after 8 or 9 wipes, I finally found my tanking groove and we killed him. After that, the last boss was cake. I just wanted to thank Madyia for patiently helping this poor tank through a tough fight. Hope you get that trinket from Azil!
