Unlike previous competitions, this one we actually had a tie for first place on! - Both Zungaba and Phyace placed first with a whopping 24 items found each before we called time. Argento was "third" (technically second, really) with 22 items. Due to Zungaba and Phyace both taking first, I had to pull them both into a group and let them roll off for first pick of the prizes. Each first place winner got a 14 slot Runecloth bag
(laugh all you want, but we're almost all low-level, broke, and those are the
gold standard for awesomesauce right now) and a truly cool Dragonhawk non-combat pet of their very own. Our "third" place winner also got a non-combat pet and a [Lucky Rock]
, which is almost but not quite entirely unlike
a 14-slot Runecloth bag. Perhaps if Argento nurtures the Lucky Rock long enough a 14 slot bag will drop for him -- or a Blue BOE that will pay for a bevy of Runecloth Bags
! (You never know, it could happen...)
Sadly, we did have a couple of people who were unable to participate due to machine problems -- or more properly, screen shots not working
. So for anyone considering running one of these types of contests in their own guild, I'd strongly advise you to let people know in advance. Suggest that they check their settings and be certain they can take screen shots so there are no last minute surprises in your scavenger hunts!
For now, you can check out some of the various screen shots we got from the winners and some of our fabulous runners up. Also, for those curious about the next event, Elizabeth has graciously stepped forward to help with the planning of that one, so keep your eyes peeled for more details!
Until the next round of craziness, I'll catch you all on Zangarmarsh
