Time for another home-realm event as the WoW Factor headed to Argent Dawn EU this week, the home of WoW Roleplay Gear!
Accompanying the usual team as a guest judge was none other than Phaice, top prize winner from one of the earliest WoW Factor events, Scarlet Crusade US Horde. She is responsible for an array of impressive transmog outfits, as can be seen on Phaice’s Facebook.
The event was hosted at our usual Alliance location, Stormwind Cathedral, albeit not without controversy. A number of individuals were unhappy with the choice of location, due to the proximity to a roleplay hub and likelyhood of attracting trolls. We sympathise with their concerns, but unfortunately there are no other Alliance locations which could have held the enormous crowd that showed up this week!
As always, Elvine provided the livestream with judge commentary, although due to a crash early in the evening, the recording was divided into two parts which are linked below.
Initially, we were scheduled to have a 100,000 gold prize package provided by Narve, a local AD player. However, not only did Narve out-do himself by adding a further 30,000 to the pot, but a number of others contributed to really bulk out the prize fund. Noelani added 26,000 and a handful of transmog items, Xarcias and Royal Court guild each donated 2,000, and The Gold Queen dropped by with her own special 10,000g prize to hand out. All of that brought the grand total for the night up to a staggering 170,000 gold. A huge thanks to everybody who contributed, especially Narve for initiating the event and sponsoring the bulk of the prize money.
If you’re like to read about the event from the perspective of a participant, Samaramón has written about her ‘Lady in Blue’ outfit, which won 3,500 gold at the event, in the article My Mad Mog Skillz finally paid off! (TheWoWfactor) at Samaramon’s World.
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 four characters as overall winners and three more as runners-up.
The prize total came to 170,000 gold.
