WoW Factor US-Arygos Alliance Follow-up

Arygos played host to the latest WoW Factor event, with a big turnout for a small realm.

We arrived on Arygos with a 75,000 gold prize package awaiting us, put together by Death Becomes Us guild and Kaimbeliah. They also added a few highly desirable items to the prize total, which we awarded to the runners-up who narrowly missed the top prizes.

Joining the panel as a guest judge this week was Dizzywick, previous WoW Factor winner from Emerald Dream US, and creator of fellow transmog blog, Dizzy’s Dressing Room. Elvine provided a livestream of the event as usual, this week as part of a 24 hour stream marathon for the Child’s Play Charity.

Turnout at the event was impressive even before the start, with a dozen or more waiting at Stormwind Cathedral when the judges arrived. There was also a greater number of level 1 visitors than we’ve ever seen before, so many that it probably became confusing for participants to determine who was actually judging! It was wonderful to see so much interest from people coming from other realms.

Competition Outline

The event was divided into two rounds, the first being the so-called ‘Random Round’, where we awarded multiple prizes of various sizes. In the second round, judges selected two characters as overall prize winners, before highlighting three more individuals as potential winners. The audience were then given a chance to vote to select the third top prize winner, with the two remaining runners-up being awarded smaller item prizes.

The prize total came to 75,000 gold.

      Thanks for coming Auralee and congratulations on your prize! We had a lot of fun as well, it’s always impressive when so many players get their best Sunday clothes on at the same time and strut around.
