WoW Factor US-Tichondrius Alliance II Follow-up


The WoW Factor returned to its roots this weekend, revisiting the home of the very first event.

It was almost six months ago that WoW Roleplay Gear teamed up with Keelhaul of Disenchanting Azeroth to arrange regular transmogrification events, under the banner of The WoW Factor. For our first event as a team, Keelhaul sponsored 150,000 gold for the Faction Five on US Tichondrius Horde and Alliance, so called as there were five primary winners on each faction. Twenty-one events down the line, a few individuals banded together to set up a prize package to bring the show back to Tichondrius Alliance.

This time around the attendance was substantially higher and Stormwind City Cathedral was packed out within moments of the event starting. There were a few familiar faces amongst the AoE spells and smoke flares which adorned the aisles at the beginning, but none wearing the same outfits as on our first visit.

As has become customary for the WoW Factor events, we were accompanied in our judging by a special guest. This week we were joined by Draynee, a two-time WoW Factor winner from Proudmoore US, and a transmog-blogger. Draynee’s site, Pretty Fly for a Draenei, offers a fantastic selection of transmogrification outfits and screenshots, as well as a post detailing her experiences as a WoW Factor guest judge. You can find the link to her article below, along with Elvine’s livestream recording of the event and a Facebook gallery full of images from Tichondrius:

Event Announcement Post

The sponsorship drive on Tichondrius came primarily from Celerity, also know as Zukum, a moderator on Elvine’s livestream channel. Not only did he provide the bulk of the prize fund, but he was instrumental in arranging the time for the event, advertising on the realm forums, and assisting us throughout the course of the event. He was not alone though, as four other generous individuals contributed to the gold pile, as follows:

Celerity – 125,000g
Coachamerica – 50,000g
Zedura – 1000g
Zavicqt – 1000g
Anonymous – 1000g

All in all, that brought the prize total for the night to 178,000 gold. A big thanks to all of the sponsors!

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. For the second round, we initially intended to select five outfits to receive prizes as the best of the night. However, due to difficulty selecting the final winner, the fifth top prize was divided between four characters, resulting in four overall winners and four runners-up.
