We may not get as many comments as The Queue, but I'd venture to say that people who read Random Acts of Uberness are as fond of this column as Queue readers are of their daily Q&A. Just take a peek at the comments we do get! I'm wondering if now wouldn't perhaps be a good time to start counting up all the comments Random Acts gets that say "This is my favorite feature on WoW Insider." You'd all be down with posting that to make our comments the most uber comments on WoW Insider, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you?
And on to today's business: WoW players were cool to one another at BlizzCon this year -- but hey hey hey, so were the ones who weren't there, too!
Caught being uber: Dotup, Cenarius (US-Alliance) After a relatively clean run through wing three of SoO on LFR (it was my first time tanking in there), Dotup sent me a whisper giving me some advice for the next time we fought, saying what would make life a lot easier on the whole group. I just wanted to give a shout-out and say thanks for taking the time to help me do my job right! :D -- Anonymous LFR Tank
Caught being uber: Unknown member of <Icon> (US-Alliance) This happened to a guildmate the other day. He ended up running into a new player out in the world and gave him a few hundred gold to get him started. Later that day, he received an in-game mail with 5,000 gold and a note: "Thanks for helping my son. It cheers me up to know there are people out there who repay kindness with kindness." He returned the gold and told us the story. -- Anonymous member of <Icon> (US-Alliance)
Caught being uber: Aallanelk, Darkspear (EU-Alliance) I just wanted to thank the lovely night elf druid Aallanelk on Darkspear (EU), who saw my lowbie tauren paladin Aktep on Lightbringer struggling in the Ring of Blood and decided to help me out. At one point she went AFK, and I accidentally started anyway and died, but she was still waiting when I got back and I got a /sorry from her, and we continued. Through emotes, we communicated for a minute until it was time for /farewell, and it was nice to see some cross-faction kindness. If you are reading this, thank you! -- Aktep, Lightbringer (EU-Horde)
[Editor's note: I guess tauren don't really get night elf gender differences, do they?]
Caught being uber: Shamhazi, Windypants and Darkleton, Khaz'goroth (US-Alliance) Today I reached the Change of Command part of the legendary cloak chain. My guild is inactive, so I was a bit worried as to how I was going to complete this part.
I put out a call on the Khaz'goroth server and within minutes had three people whisper and say they would help. A big thank you to Shamhazi [Editor's note: We didn't find a Shamhazi there, but maybe the player name will be recognizable] , Windypants and Darkleton, who came to my aid and in no time flat had killed Warlord Bloodhilt. They heartily congratulated me and went on their way. Their kindness was amazing. -- Shettra

It's those times another player lights up your night with precise play, a wicked sense of humor, or unexpected generosity that you're a night spent in Azeroth becomes something to remember. Looking for a place to feel good about humanity again? You've come to the right place: WoW Insider's Random Acts of Uberness.
