WoW Factor US-Lightbringer Follow-up

Not to be outdone by previous WoWfactor events, Lightbringer brought an enormous crowd down to Stormwind Cathedral for our latest transmogrification contest.

Things didn’t look too promising at first, as the judges assembled at Stormwind Keep with five minutes to go before showtime and the only other person in attendance being ‘Wöwfactor’ who, despite the name, was not affiliated with us. At the last moment we decided to switch our destination to Stormwind Cathedral, hoping that the length of the aisle would provide ample space for contestants to line up. Much to our surprise, within about 2 minutes of this change being announced and moments before the show was due to commence, the Cathedral hall was flooded with an array of colourful characters.

Keelhaul fronted the prize money once more, with a grand total of 152,000 gold to give away to the fanciest of transmogrification outfits. As if that wasn’t enough Icy Veins sponsored two Blizzard store mounts for the top two outfits of the night, making this the largest prize fund to date.

Due to the number of participants and the scale of the prize package, the event turned out to be the longest yet, especially considering how difficult it was to choose winners between so many well constructed outfits. A livestream was once again available so that participants and transmogrification enthusiasts could follow along with the judging process, kindly provided by Elvine whose nifty camera-work and high quality recording made sure that the viewing experience was excellent. You can view recordings of the livestream commentary over at Elvine’s TwitchTV page: Part I | Part II | Part III (Note that the event itself begins at approximately the 53 minute mark in Part I).



Competition Outline

For this event we divided the competition into four rounds, starting off with a large number of characters winning small prizes and gradually working up to the top prizes, the two Blizzard store mounts provided by Icy Veins, by process of elimination.

  • Round 1: Twenty-seven participants were selected to win 1000g each (27k total)
  • Round 2: Fifteen of the Round 1 finalists were given 5000g (75k total)
  • Round 3: Four finalists from Round 2 were awarded a further 10,000 gold and three more received 3333g each. We had initially planned to have a Top 5 winning 10k each, but we had difficultly choosing the last slot between three characters, so we split the remaining prize gold between them (50k total)
  • Round 4: Finally, two out of the Top 7 from Round 3 were chosen to receive a Blizzard store mount of their choice

Read on below for a list of the winners and a screenshot gallery of the top 15 sets of the night!

Congratulations once more to the winners and commiserations to those who didn’t receive a prize, we greatly appreciated seeing every outfit, even if we didn’t select them as finalists.
