Heroism in MMOs is a tricky thing. Most games cast us as some sort of cosmic fulcrum, but then most games also ask us to take a time out from saving the world in order to collect a few thousand rat tails or kill a boss who has already been defeated by a thousand other players.

Action combat MMOs can sometimes turn these trivial tasks into quasi-heroic moments, at least for me. Just the other day I was running yet another daily instance in DC Universe Online, but the game's nifty combos and niftier animations elevated what's normally a by-the-numbers armor grind into something reasonably exciting.

What about you, Massively readers? When's the last time an MMO made you feel heroic, and what were you doing?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
