A number of  BoE Epics have been donated too. We're keeping it surprise how these prizes will be handed out but it'll be fun.

A few other categories that are being considered include, Best NPC Impersonation, Classic Outfits, Funniest and some fun stuff like honorable mentions and booby prizes.

Additional sponsors, both individuals and groups are welcome. You can sponsor a new category of your choice or contribute to the prize pool for existing categories. A minimum of 10,000g or prizes of similar value is required to sponsor a new category.

Note to my regular blog readers, this is an idea I've been considering for some weeks and finally decided to give it a shot. This post is really intended to direct players on Antonidas US server to for contest information and rules. It will be updated frequently as things progress, new categories get added and so on.

  2. This is a really fun idea, we've been trying to figure out the logistics, looking forward to seeing how it turns out. See you tomorrow - Soliss

  3. Really have to wonder about Blizzard's ban policies sometimes.

    A player gets banned for telling people about a fun free event like this, yet trade is swamped with trolls and spammers blatantly disregarding the ToS and not getting banned for it.

  4. In case anyone's wondering the screenshot is an armory picture of my own personal transmog set.

    And since people keep asking, no copying my set doesn't mean you'll win. ;)
