The Classifieds: Celebrating world PVP


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.

Ahn'Qiraj: The Fallen Kingdom is a player-run event on Emerald Dream (US) to promote the idea of world PVP. It takes place on Aug 13 at 7 p.m. server time. If you're not familiar with the term, essentially world PVP harkens back to the days when we didn't have battlegrounds, arenas, or other fishbowl player-versus-player contests -- just simple, random open warfare in the middle of the PVE zones. You can find out more about this event in the official forums; this group is definitely hoping for a big turn-out.

In a whole different kind of news, Xander and Airielle of Pendragon (Proudmoore US-A) put together this cover of Part of Your World called Part of Your Raid. Xander wrote the lyrics while Airielle performed it.

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.

Hexacore, Mooiellia, and Aoide of Drenden (US-H), and Ophiilia of Blackwater Raiders (US-H) I was clearing Heroic Deadmines the other day with Hexacore (Drenden), Mooiellia (Drenden), Aoide (Drenden) and Ophiilia (Blackwater Raiders), and while we were killing the trash before Ripsnarl a message popped up; "Server Restart: 15:00". We were silent for a moment, and then someone commented "Well, guess we have to finish this in 15 minutes." Ripsnarl went down at t-minus 9 minutes, Cookie died at around 7. We tore through the nightmare and engaged VanCleef with about 4 minutes left (grabbing the achievement in the process) and got to her final phase with only 1 minute left on the clock. That last phase was intense, with the countdown filling chat, but we finally managed to kill Vanessa and complete the run with less than 15 seconds to spare. I really wanted to give a big shout-out to my party members for pulling off such an impressive feat. -- Arkondrksoul of Argent Champion (US-H)
