Valor is signified by ones ability to stand strong in the heat of battle. Leaders of family events must show their valor by leading troops into combat and bringing our troops through the battle successfully. The victories below highlight Lakshmi's accomplishments on the battlefield as a leader.

"Great event! I didn't know I could get VW's big chest more than once a day."
"Our feerless Lakshmi has the patience of a saint. I enjoy any event she leads because she never leaves anyone behind. I had never been to the area we were before but still made it through with her guidance. I am more grateful for the fact she does not seem the least bit annoyed when she goes to save the jumping puzzle impaired. She led a fun event and I consider her a priceless leader for us all to look up to and enjoy our time with."

"Lakshmi provided clear, concise information about the Silverwastes and happily answered questions from several new players. Under her leadership we quickly achieved every goal and overcame every challenge the game threw at us. I was also impressed with her positive demeanor. I'll happily run many more Saturday's in the Silverwastes with her in command."

"She was very kind and patient. "
"Lakshmi's events are always an enjoyable time."
"Working with such a large group of players is like the proverbial herding of cats. Thankfully, Lakshmi is an amazing cat herder. She was calm and patient while keeping a mass of gatherers together. Which was not an easy feat since some of us were clearly directionally challenged. Also she had a plan but was flexible when the game changed due to events. Amazing job!"

"Thank you for the crafting faire. I hopped off voice chat at the end, but my only suggestion would be to break into tier groups each week."
"Lak- thanks so much for making my 1st crafting event so much fun. Your patience and leadership much appreciated. I am still quite new to the game and trying to get the rudiments of crafting. My hope is we can, perhaps have a couple of crafting 'assignments' in the event which will show us the basics. Thanks again."
"Great Work shmi! :) I hope that there are other areas in the works for upcoming events. Very well run event. "
