Nice Guy Award: Player gives away two 50,000g mounts
Over on Reddit’s /r/wow this morning there was a great post by a priest named Clearly_Unimpressed about a recent time he responded to a question in trade chat: “What would you do with 200,000g?” He replied that he’d buy a Vial of the Sands — the Cataclysm archaeology item that gives you the Sandstone Drake mount.
So what happens?
The guy asking the question in chat finds Clearly_Unimpressed and opens a trade window with him, handing over the Vial. Clearly_Unimpressed was actually quite impressed, thanked the generous fellow for his gift, and mentioned that he wanted to give it to his friend who always desired one.
The trade chat champion would have none of that. He scooted off to auction house and returned to Clearly_Unimpressed, giving him another Vial so he and his friend could have matching mounts.
Too often we hear only about the bad people, the annoying things, the changes we don’t like, etc… Hopefully today we can all take a minute and remember that there are a ton of great people in this community, like this trade chat hero.
Amidst what sometimes seems like an ocean of rude, uncaring players, there are definitely those players that really care about others and go out of their way to help.
One such example I have is when I started a character on a completely new realm. My toon was in their teens and I literally had like 16 silver to my name. I was running through SW when I stopped to look in my bag, and a level 85 rode up to me, opened trade and dropped 200 gold on me! I was stunned! The gold was so timely for me as I could now get some bags and train up professions, etc..
That gold meant more to me than I can say not so much because of the economic impact (although that was huge), but because of the random act of kindness this person showed. I sent them an game mail telling them how much I appreciated it and promised them I would pay it forward, and that I have, and will continue to do.
