The Classifieds: BlizzCon is two weeks away


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.

As I was busily working yesterday in stately Gray Manor, my good friend (and boss) Dan dropped me a message. "Do you realize," he said (and I paraphrase, because he's my boss), "BlizzCon is just two weeks away?"

I dropped my coffee with a gasp. It really is just two weeks away. We'll get to see the Foo Fighters rock the house and stand in line to buy awesome merchandise. Oh yeah, and WoW Insider is going to have one hell of a party.

Here's hoping you're packing your bags, folks. BlizzCon is getting very, very close. Two weeks will fly by before you know it, and suddenly we'll all be in Anaheim soaking in that beautiful Blizzard love.

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.

Lorillina of Alleria (US-A) About a month ago my DK on Alleria, GeoKnight, sent money to the tune of 10k gold to at the time what I thought was my Shaman Lorilina. However, upon sending the mail and never receiving it on Lorilina I knew I had to have accidentally hit an extra character in the "To" field. So I took it for what it was worth and crossed my fingers and sent out mail to every possible misspelling I could think of. Simply stating, "I accidentally mailed that money to the wrong toon, my mistake. Enjoy!"
Well, come to find out that today I log in to that little mail blip on my map and long behold it's Lorillina from Alleria returning my gold! I can't thank them enough and wanted to share this with you guys (and gals). There are some really decent people out there that I am glad to say that I play this game with them! -- Geoknight
