“I always thought that common sense would prevail. But on a game show, there is no common sense.”
Our Guild Event
Last night began the first of five guild events on Thursday nights. It has been and will be hosted by one of our members and has been a few months in the planning.
Our first was pretty fun:
- We all had to make new level on human paladins and not move a step. Stacked up on top of each other for ten minutes while we waiting was great.
- No heirlooms, no heirloom mount, no flight points, no gold.
- Our task was to get to Booty Bay and buy the Senegal pet for 40 silver and return to Goldshire to turn in to our game leader.
Most of us got out our Enchanted Torch so that we’d look like a peasant mob. I regret forgetting to screen cap this stuff.
I did not win. Not even close.
I chose to earn my 40 silver by killing mobs like boars and spiders and vendoring. The hope was a green piece of gear to drop. I had zero luck but others did much better.
A few headed straight to Booty Bay, right through the heart of Stranglethorn and dying. Their hope was to beg some gold at the dock. Even with nekkid dancing, they were ignored; by accounts via Discord this was humiliating to much laughter.
The winner went to Stormwind, found a stranger who was on our realm and begged a gold. Then he went to Westfall and swam down to Booty Bay. He’d set his hearth in Goldshire and beat everyone by at least half-an-hour.
Players could also get points for Achievements. One player ignored the task and racked up quite a few points via achieves.
We rewarded first, second and third place winners with items that they chose from our Prize tab in the guild bank. Mostly toys, rare pets, mounts or stacks of flasks and then some odd bits like inky black potions etc.
The game master is throwing gold into the pot. For each participant, he tosses in 1000 gold. He’ll do this each week; so the final amount might be pretty high.
Next week the heirloom restrictions are off. We are tasked to reach level ten during this week so that we can be invited into a raid team. He’ll be porting us somewhere with his Mage. That’s all we know.
It is our hope to get even more friends to participate and really hurt his bank account!
