Erynalia of Azuremyst (US-A) "Hello Classifieds - if you could send a shoutout to Erynalia from the guild Echoes of Infinity on Azuremyst Alliance, that would be awesome. Erynalia is a scribe who, when I didn't have the darkmoon card she needed to trade for, just GAVE me the last one I needed to make my deck. If that isn't uber, I don't know what is. Thank you again from Rhii (scribe) and Rhee (resto shammy who is getting a Tsunami card) on Azuremyst! You'll be welcome to a return favor from me any time." -- Rhii/Rhee, Azuremyst (US-A)
