The Classifieds: Understanding the schedule


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.

Did you catch this awesome interview about the AFK Tavern? We were pretty excited about it; I wish I could open one around my own home. Just to cement how cool it is, check out this picture they sent us of their own roasted crocolisk.

We had a few letters this week to The Classifieds asking about what the deadline schedule is like. I need submissions in place by Monday, since I turn in The Classifieds Tuesday morning. While I sometimes squeeze late entries in through the day, I can't always promise that.

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.

Drak'thul EU group I entered Zul'Aman just to get the JP, and maybe to have a go at the bear. Kombr, Møtiøn, Lelou and Dawemáslo (all Drak'thul-EU) ask me if I've got the bear. I say no and they say they'll get it for me. Sure enough we blast through the instance, downing Halazzi with 8mins to spare. since they all have the bear, they pass on it, and basicly give it to me. They sure made this DK's week! -- Frosteyes, Xavius (EU)

Acronym for a name Raiding alliances are usually a good way to get into raiding. OSTW is an Alliance guild on the Khaz Modan PvE realm. We are a small guild that does everything from casual raiding, to dungeons, to leveling. Our goal is to have as much fun as possible seeing all of the content WoW has to offer by maintaining a mature group in a cooperative, drama-free environment. We are laid back, friendly adults who have a wide variety of playstyles, time commitments, and in-game interests. We are currently running Cataclysm dungeons and pre-Cataclysm (Wrath) raids. We find that staying behind the raiding "power curve" allows us to experience WoW's end game content without the pressure, gearing, and time requirements of current raiding content. We plan to start the Tier 11 Cata raids down the road a bit. Please visit us at for more info.

Casual-core You are accustomed to hardcore, but casual-core is a fun turn of phrase. Templars of Lia Fail, US-Exodar [H] is a level 25 casual-core guild looking to rebuild our raiding ranks. We started in BC as a friends and family guild and had great raiding success through Lich King – including fielding several raid groups. But the Cataclysm attrition hit us hard and we came under new management (well, some guildies took it over). The rebuilding is going well and we are successfully raiding 10-man T11 content, gearing folks up. We hope to start T12 content in the very near future. Most guildies are working adults and provide a fun environment. We raid Tuesday 7:30-10:30 and are looking to find a second night. We'd also like to get a late-night run going for our West coast guildies. Check out our website and fill out an application at: Or send an in-game message to Yaboot or Conqubine.

Future imperfect Sounds like a good group, but naming the guild Dystopia just seems like asking for trouble. Dystopia of US-Spinebreaker is a Horde raiding guild that is currently 7/7 in normal Firelands and progressing quickly. We're looking a few more Ranged DPS to push us over into 25 mans full time. We also have spots open for a Holy Paladin and a Healing Priest. We're looking for applicants that are fun to be around and won't cause drama - because we won't tolerate it! We raid Monday through Wednesday from 8:30 to Midnight EST. We're a guild full of friends that like to have fun together, but we also know how to get stuff done. Visit to apply, or Real-ID Faralia at with any questions.

Great scott! These good folks are still recruiting; get your time-heavy sneakers happening. One Pt Two One Jigawatts of Hydraxis-US [Horde] is still actively recruiting players who are interested in raiding older content, PvPing with others in their bracket, running dungeons, or anything else they'd be interested in at a level cap. We have raiding teams, arena teams, are working on gearing players for rated BGs, and there are large communities of twinks at our levels all over the country. If you're interested in joining us, drop us a line at our website, or send a tell to one of our officers in-game. All of our policies and guidelines can be found at our website, linked above. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Healer wanted This group needs a third healer. Kalimdors Legion - Hydraxis [H] is currently looking for a third healer for it's core 10 man raid team. The ideal individual would be a resto druid or shaman, is raid aware and has good attendance. We currently raid Tue/Wed/Thur night from 7:30 till 11:30 server time. Kalimdors Legion has been a very successful guild since the days of the Burning Crusade earning many server firsts including 25 man Heroic Lich King. Recently KL has decided to shift to a 10 man core team. For more information about our guild or to apply please visit us on our website at
Hellbillys As an Appalachian hipster, I just love this name. The Hellbillys are a small Alliance 10 man guild dedicated to raiding, semi-drunken fellowship and the elimination of jerks from the face of Azeroth. Sort of like the Knights of the Round Table, but with more beer. Currently on Firelands content with two 10 man teams, 1/7 but looking to push into FL in the next couple of weeks. Currently working on Beth. Currently looking to permanently fill a long vacant Healing spot as well as a Ranged DPS spot, both on our core Team 1. Prefer a Disc Priest or Resto Druid, but all candidates will be considered and given a shot. As for Ranged DPS, we prefer a Warlock or Balance Druid but again, all candidates will be given consideration.If interested in joining or want more info, contact a Hellbilly in-game, drop a line to our email or write on our facebook page wall.

Heroic Method This group needs a few exceptional players to succeed in heroic content. Methodic is a Horde side guild on Blackwing Lair - US. Currently 6/7 Heroic 10 man, looking for exceptional players of all classes/specs! Main group raiding Tues-Thursday, 7-11 PST, with an up and coming group raiding Fri-Sun. If you have raiding experience, and you excel at what you do, we want to see your app! Still seeking the elusive balance spec druid! Apply at or speak to our recruitment officer on Real ID at:

Inevitability These guys are (inevitability) looking for a few healers. Inevitable Failure on Doomhammer US Alliance is looking for a couple decent healers to fill out our 10 man raid. One friend had to leave for RL, and another can't make raid times anymore due to a change in his work schedule. We could use a paladin and a priest, probably, but are willing to discuss other choices. We raid Friday 9-12 mountain and Saturday 8-12 mountain. We're pretty casual, with little interest in heroics unless 4.3 takes long enough that we have nothing else to raid. We made 12/12 in Tier 11 before 4.2; we're only 4/7 now, as summer has hit us the same as anyone.

Weekend Raiding BNeed some raiding on the weekends? Sounds like these guys can help. Brought to you by GenocideX @ US Aerie Peak! GenocideX raids 25 mans Friday and Saturday nights 6pm (Tz -07:00). We are 7/7 Firelands , and on the cusp of starting heroic mode come and be a part of a small time commitment guild that takes raiding very seriously! NEEDS: DPS: Deathknight, Moonkin, Warlock, Hunter. HEALS: Holy-Priest, Resto-Druid, Resto-Shammy. App@ PRESS BUTTONS HARDER!
