One of the best parts about MMOs is that they give players a chance to be kind in countless little ways. Maybe not always in memorable ones, too. You don’t have to befriend the person who swoops in to save you from dying in an ill-advised fight, but you can still appreciate them. I don’t remember the names of various people who raised me when I died in Valkurm Dunes in Final Fantasy XI, but I appreciated them just the same.
That’s the fun thing about being kind to other players: You can even just do it idly while you’re busy with other things. You stop and cast a raise spell on someone who needs it. You help a new player kill things for a bit. You do something random, anonymous, and kind. So what’s your favorite story of anonymous kindness from an MMO? What story can you think of where someone just swooped in, did something nice, and left without further interaction?
