The Classifieds: Machinima greats Myndflame and Yumfries return to the scene


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.

Two incredibly popular machinima makers have recently returned to make their mark on the WoW community. I'm only listing them in alphabetical order here.

Myndflame has been incredibly busy, from some new songs to a full album. If you've got some time or a few loose pennies, take the time to swing by Myndflame and support their art. One of the best ways to get more of this creativity into the community is to help out the people doing the art, and Myndflame is certainly deserving.

Yumfries is also back with a new video called STUFOOH! The video has some adult concepts and blue comedy, so be warned that it's not necessarily appropriate for work. Yumfries has always had some ironic commentary about the community and its "celebrities," and Nub Tales has been especially insightful. STUFOOH! is probably going to be a little controversial, but it's worth the watch.

Esuren of Silvermoon (US-H) During Noblegarden in front of Ogrimmar a level 18 dwarf female hunter with the name of Forthehordee. Was there for so many to get one of the hardest of classes. A hordee killed the dwarf before I could tap her with my spring flowers (darn you blizz for the 5 minute cd). I cried over her corpse. I waited in vain hope of the dwarf coming back. A hordee dk by the name of Esuren whispered me that it was a toon she spent 4 hours making just so folks could get their achievement. She picked up my wee level 37 goblin on her dragon mount. Took her to a safe spot and switched to her dwarf just so I could get the achievement. Many thanks to a very considerate person behind the toon! -- Anonymous

Ethos has one heck of a guild video. Ethos is a small Alliance 10-man guild on the US-Dalaran server. While plenty of guilds are working on heroic content on our server, we still feel our recent completion of the normal mode tier content is an accomplishment. We had quite a lengthy setback and we have recovered with a vengeance. We are proud of our accomplishment and I made a video to celebrate it. Check it out here. You can stream the video, but downloading it results in a much higher quality experience (trust me, it's worth the download). We're recruiting and thinking about moving into 25-man content. Thanks! Valimor.
