The Classifieds: New lyrics to I Play W.O.W.


The Classifieds brings you weekly news from around the WoW community, including our famous Random Acts of Uberness shout-outs to players who make your WoW sessions memorable.

As part of the season finale to The Jace Hall Show, new lyrics have been added to the gamer anthem I Play W.O.W. Not only are these lyrics a nice acknowledgment of Cataclysm, but they're equally a homage to the folks who follow Jace's work.

The whole episode is pretty good, but I think the new lyrics really stood out. While I can't imagine they'll recreate the entire video just to feature the new lines, I hope they find a way to string the original song and the new lyrics together. They're a strong addition to I Play W.O.W., and it'd be cool to hear it all on the same MP3.

Local Edition: Community News

The Alliance of Guilds on Undermine (US-A) are working together to advance their common good. Over 32 guilds have joined a chat channel, sent guild ambassadors among one another, and made huge strides in working together. The AoG was put together to help compete with a single guild who was nabbing all the realm firsts; it seems like they're making good progress on that goal. If you're a player on Undermine, you should definitely check them out.

Guilds are starting to achieve guild level 25. Congratulations to The Syndicate and Blacklisted on being the first guilds on their respective realms to become level 25. It's obviously been a long, hard road. Ding -- grats!

EmberIsolte created this video to make sure we know April is Troll Month! While trolls might not be for everyone, she managed to make trolls fun, entertaining, and incredibly word-clever.

Huntercuddles was so touched by the helpful crab from April 1 that he put this video together to say Goodbye Crabby! This one's going to stay with us for a while.

An MIT class project is using LUA in WoW as a jumping-off point to learn programming. They've posted their revolutionary curriculum on the web. This is yet another example of how the game is permeating culture and even education!

Adding another 10-man The Scattered Winds already has one 10-man team, but now they're looking to add another. The Scattered Winds ( is a level 20 Horde Guild with a current 10 man team raiding 2 nights/week (3/6 3/4 1/2). The guild has existed in WoW since the launch of vanilla and stems from guilds formed in other games. The core tenant of the guild is to play the game and have fun. Many guild members are ready and prepared to assist with questing and running dungeons. We currently have members interested in forming an additional 10 man.

Arts and Education Steelspring Cartel actually has some unique inclinations. Steelspring Cartel is a casual guild that looks for something different from its members. While we find the exact quality to be elusive in name, it seems an inclination toward learning, arts, and witty banter will help you fit in with our circle of guildies. If you have a love of reading, are able to do calculus equations in your head, want to bring more art into World of Warcraft, or have more than once experienced l'esprit de l'escalier, we would like to invite you to join us on US-Wyrmrest Accord for heroics, raiding, and whatever we decide is fun this week. More information can be found at our website, or you can contact any officer in game.

Boomkin needed The guild Hardline is specifically interested in picking up Balance druids. We are currently recruiting a Balance Druid who is experienced with current heroic mode bosses and preferably who has previous experience with progression guilds. They need to know to properly utilize their class, kiting, cc, tranq, etc. We are a 5/13H guild who are working on being a competitive server first, as such we want someone who is determined and committed. We raid Tues/Thurs/Sun from 8pm CST to 12pm CST. To apply or get more information our website is: We thank you if you choose to help us find our balance druid.

Choose your destiny Choice is looking for a few good ranged folks. Choice is a semi-hardcore raiding guild on the Skywall server founded two years ago by a group of friends interested in high level content in World of Warcraft. We have a number of players who participate in PvP, and a great collection of "Friends and Family" members who play casually and enjoy the social aspects of life in a guild , but 25-person end-game raiding is our focus. We are casual in terms of the hours we play, but not in how we approach raiding.

We work as a team, and every raider is expected to contribute to the group's success. We strive to keep the atmosphere in our raids professional and focused, yet relaxed. We enjoy some friendly banter between players, but we try to keep it within reason so as to make the most of our time together. Since we don't raid longer, we have to raid smarter. We're currently looking for healers & DPS! Come check us out at

Established guild This group is looking for ranged DPS and healers for four nights of raiding. The Covenant is a long standing, established guild, that has been raiding 25 man content for 5 years.

We are looking for experienced ranged DPS and healers that can commit their time four nights a week. We raid from 7PM to 10:30PM Central time Sun-Mon-Wed-Thurs.

Need some healers Paragon is looking for some DPS and healers for heroic content. Paragon is looking for more exceptional healers and dps to solidify our 25 man progression team. The team was created near the beginning of Cataclysm to tackle end game content - we are currently 2/13H. Raid times are Mon, Tues, Thurs & Sunday, 6-9pm pacific time. We offer a mature, fun environment for raiders who cannot commit to 16+ hours of raiding but still want to see heroic content. Come join us!

Raiders to the courtesy phone Dragons Call are seeking a few friends for raiding. We're a casual guild with a focus on 10-man raiding. Raid attendance plummetted at the end of Wrath and has not yet rebounded, and we're looking for fun, laid-back, mature people to start our march upon Cataclysm raid content. We're currently in need of tanks, ranged DPS, and a non-druid healer, but anyone with an interest in raiding will be welcomed. Raid times are usually Tues/Thursday nights. We'd really love to get back in the swing of raiding!

Video advertisement Velocity thought you should simply see why you'd like to join them. Frankly, their promotional video is just awesome as hell.
