1+ Like to OP and your entire guild.
very heartwarming and gratz to get these items named after you!
you guys are true heroes
is it possible i've seen Ben in Top Gear once when they wanted to do some kind of rally stage? i remember something about a team of handicapped ex-soldiers taking on all sorts of extreme challenges..
Massive respect to you and your guild!
* Bows with greatest respect*
I salute Hexu, Davidian and the rest of Die Safe members for this remarkable achievement.
I used to play in a guild called Die Safe on Doomhammer during my vanilla and early BC days and I had great time and great memories in that guild. I guess all guilds with that name are awesome :)
Also good job Blizzard for adding those two items.
To Hexu and Davidian. You guys are true living legends of WoW. Not only that this makes me even more happier that I am (and has been for years) a part of WoW community, but now I can wander the Azeroth knowing that people like you two actually exist and are out there.
An absolute well done guys!
That being said, I am amazed and awed by the sheer mindbogling stubborness displayed by Ben despite a dissability afflicted on him after reaching adulthood, which I believe often makes it all the harder comming to terms with, than it does for those born with them(could be utter nonsens ofc, wouldnt be the first time, that is atleast my experience as a longtime aide working with people unfortunate enought to either being born with a dissability or getting a cripling disease/dissability later in life).
Back to Ben - Hats off man! I cant say for certain, but I am fairly sure I wouldnt be able to find your strength should I end up in your situation.
Owen - dude - what is so inspiring to me, is the matter-of-fact attitude you display, you dont appear to do this out of some sense of pity, but because it comes natural to you... that is beyond applauding, its what makes the rest of us shape up and strive to be a little bit better!
I cant say if its your upbringing or all yourself or just that right combo, but dont ever change man, ever!
Lastly a kudos to your guildmates for taking part in creating an atmosphere where this is possible, good stuff guys and gals!
edit: Oh bugger! forgot a hf to blizz for making those items - guess im so used to whining and moaning in here Icompletely forgot... gj guys!
To the people wondering why Hexu is still at level 86 I have the answer for you.
Ben changed his main at the near end of Dragon Soul.
He now plays under the name 'Dirtypawz' which is his level 90 Panda Rogue.
We are still dropping bosses and Ben is hitting harder than ever.
Keep up what you are doing Die Safe!
Also - amazing story. Got a feel from reading it
