The Classifieds: From Bad to Glad


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.

This video
was created by Bloodvein and Myndflame on behalf of Skill Capped. Cottage is a restoration druid gladiator who is widely known as one of the best PVP players in Europe. He'll be starting a death knight and going from a brand-new character all the way to Gladiator inside a single season. You can find out more at Skill Capped itself. I've watched this movie in its entirety, and I'm pretty excited to see where the whole series goes. Cottage is definitely putting out some worthwhile analysis, and both new and experienced players can benefit from the information.

If you decide you want to try out the Arena and PVP, make sure you take a look at Arena Junkies. It's a community site that's been around for a while, and many experienced PVP players post to the forums. While it might take some work to find the best information, AJ is definitely a great first stop as you're getting started with the Arena.

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.

Employment: Guilds recruiting

Looking for more? Send in your guild name, realm, a link to your guild website or armory listing and a sentence or two on your guild's focus (10-man, RP, late-night raiding, whatever) to

Dark raiding Okay, I don't know why I think of this as dark raiding. It's just their name. Dark is currently seeking a few Healers and DPS for Hardmode Firelands progression. Our focus is mainly on raiding but we have an active PvP community. We run 2 official ten mans each week and several unofficial raids on the weekends.

Do all the things This guild says they do everything, and from the sounds of their advertisement ... they just might. Looking for something a little different? Spectacular Death (A-Llane) is a casual guild that goes everywhere and does everything in WOW. We specialize in helping the casual raider see those raids he or she wouldn't get to see because he or she has a real life. Family friendly, we have all ages, skill levels and game interest. We run everything from Molten Core to Firelands and are well known on Llane for doing unusual events. We just did a flash mob of Stormwind and Orgrimmar and have organized Halaa Battle Token runs. If your idea of a raid is a shadow priest tanking, you'll fit right in. We will never have server firsts. We don't care. We're having way too much fun progressing at our own pace. Head on over to and read all about us. Server transfers welcome. We always have open recruitment.

New 10-man team This sounds like a great oppotunity to get in on the ground floor. Autumn Sun is a new guild to the realm of Whisperwind, and we're recruiting on behalf of the Alliance. We only formed on August 18th, but our core 10-man raiding team has been together nearly a year. We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30-10:30 and are 4/7 in Firelands. We are looking to get a second raid 10-man group going on a more casual, once-a-week schedule. More importantly, we're looking for players who want to experience a fun, friendly, and relaxed atmosphere. Autumn Sun is computer scientists, artists, receptionists, and web developers. We are brothers, and sisters, and husbands, and wives, and parents. We are soccer, and basketball, and baseball, and football. We are World of Warcraft, and Portal, and Spiral Knights and Cut the Rope. We are friendly, and patient, and constructive. If this sounds like you too, check us out at

Oldest guild on server Long-established guilds can sometimes be difficult to join. It sounds like this one wants to open up its doors. The Highland Army of US-Dunemaul is the oldest Alliance guild on the server having been formed on March 17, 2006 and raiding ever since. We are 6/7 in Firelands 25 and 7/7 in 10 man. We are looking for healers for our core 25 man raids before we start Heroic content. Feral Cats, Locks, and Rogues are also welcome. Raid times are Tues-Thurs 4:30-8:00 PM PST. There is a Sunday raid as well from 12:00-3:00 PM PST for those who cannot make regular hours. The guild is very close with longtime members and friends. Our atmosphere is laid back in general but serious in raids. We want people who are passionate about raiding and who can comply with our guild's standards regarding loyalty, determination, and performance. Interested applicant are encouraged to fill out an application on our website or contact Akeron in-game or Real-ID Akeron at with questions.
