“Guide Dog” player and sightless guild-mate honored with in-game items, Olivia Grace, WoW Insider, 9/26/12.
Back in January, WoW Insider reported on British soldier Ben Shaw (Hexu) who was blinded by shrapnel in Iraq. He continued raiding in WoW thanks to his friend Owen (Davidian) who guides him in the game. Blizzard has now honored them with in-game items. Hexu’s Amplifying Helm with flavor text, “A man with a friend is never without vision,” and Davidian’s All-Seeing Eyes with flavor text, “Sharp enough to see for two men.” Such an amazing story!
