The Classifieds: Thriftee, never spend a penny


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.

We're always on the look out for new and interesting play styles. It's a big World of Warcraft, and we love to see the new and exciting efforts folks make to to expand the community even a little further. We've seen game pacifists, but never a game cheapskate. Check out this letter we got about Thriftee:

I just wanted to tell you a bit about our dear guilde Thriftee (the player behind Thriftee is an elderly woman, 60+) who are one of those who loves to find minigames inside the game itself. She enjoys to find unsual challenges and has before this levelled a level 1 explorer Twink that you have featured before on Classified (Döra the explorer).
A while ago she set out on a new adventure. Levelling a toon to level 85 without spending one copper even on anything. That meant no training, no repairs, no flights, no mount, etc, etc. It took her a while but now shes done it.
Shes quite a cool woman, she frapses, does a wee bit of machanima and sets thise fun challenges for herself and blogs about it.

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. Don't be afraid of sending an entry more than once if it doesn't appear; sometimes internet dragons eat email, and we'd hate to let that keep deserving players from getting their due.

Nombi I just finished a pug run through Scholomance with my Holy Priest, Owlmagus. The group was excellent but in particular, Nombi from Earthen Ring went above and beyond. We rolled on the Freezing Lich Robes and she won. A second later, up popped my trade window. Yep, she gave me the piece because her current robe was better than the one I had. With all the complaints we hear about pugs, I wanted to give kudos and my thanks to her. -- Owlmagus
