This is the third time I’ve entered a Tyrael’s Hilt giveaway but I had never come this close to winning before. The last one was run by WoWHead so you can imagine the number of people in the running for that one. However, I still came out with a small runner up prize which was unexpected.
So for Navi’s Moving House Giveaway, I couldn’t believe such an awesome prize was up for grabs again, especially since it’s been on my Ultimate Wish List for so long. I spent a good number of hours looking for all 16 clues but there was a bit of a mixup with my answer to the second question. It didn’t help that I was missing two of the clues so I thought the last question asked
“Five who __ __ favourite NPC in WoW”
I had picked five of the eight names (derived from the first question) and tried to figure out the favourite NPCs for the blogger names I had chosen. Funnily enough I had Navi’s favourite NPC correct which meant I would have been the first one to give her the correct two answers but since I submitted five NPC names, it didn’t count. It was only later that I realised that the second question started with ‘Who’ and not ‘Five’.
In the end I managed to come up with the second correct answer by ~1am last night. I’m told it was within half an hour of both Arv and Luxy but the draw was due to happen early this morning so with only three names in the running, there was a really good chance of winning. As these things go, I ended up coming second so a big grats to Arv for winning the Grand Prize.
I’m sure he’ll have his levelled up in a day :P
Since my name was drawn second, I won the TCG Riding Turtle from the Heroes of Azeroth Expansion leaving me three to go for Mount Parade. I did wonder if this was any different to the Sea Turtle you can fish up but it appears to be the same other than the colour. One advantage is the fact that you can ride it at any level so it’s great for twinks who can use it to cross water at a speed advantage but on land your movement speed would be the same as walking. I don’t mind though since it still counts towards my achievement.
Three to go… which will they be?
