Holiday Gift Giveaway


Happy Holidays SV! To celebrate the holiday season as a guild we will be having a Holiday Gift Giveaway. To make it easier for everyone to participate the gifts will be available to be claimed on two days, Sunday, January 7th and Monday, January 8th. On Sunday, January 7th one of the guild tabs will be filled with grey items. Each of these grey items will correspond to a wonderful holiday surprise. All you have to do to participate is log on Jan 7th or 8th and choose the grey item that seems luckiest to you. Then you just mail the grey item to me (Galena) and I will mail back your gift from the guild. It's one gift per person, so don't worry if you can't log on both days. :)

If you'd like to help out, there are two ways.

  • Send me unique grey items. I need help finding the silliest, most unusual, or even just favorite grey items to fill the bank tab with. This is your chance to spam my mailbox.
  • Donations! I always appreciate your help coming up with fun prizes. In particular, the games from engineering and jewelcrafting and the pets from enchanting, alchemy, etc are usually fun to win and many people still don't have them. Non-profession toys and pets that are uncommon are also a fun holiday gift. Mounts or help with the mats to create one are always a safe bet. I will post a list below of what we have still in our prize pool from the guild party to help if you aren't sure what might be a good option. :)

Thanks in advance for all the help and prizes! You guys always make getting these events together much easier with your generosity. Also, a big thanks to Kash for suggesting we do something for the holidays again. :)

Warmest wishes for a fun, safe, and happy holiday season.

I've put a couple of scraps in the guild bank. You should take at least one to give away.

I added both engineering rocket mounts to the pot.

Many thanks to Zinnie, Q, and especially Xb for the donations!

I don't spend enough time in game to make anything cool, but that is why there is money!  I'm offering up one 10$ pet, and one 25$ mounts of the winner's choosing.  Just let me know who wins and/or their gift preference.

I'm also happy to just provide blizzard bucks if the winner would like to put it towards something different, like a Jaina Proudmoore outgoing voicemail message (someone is working on that right?).

Now I'm torn, the pets and mounts are on sale for half off until the second.  I could give twice as many gifts without a choice, or stick with the plan...  thoughts?

Hmm, that's tough. I'm not an avid pet collector, so I only have one of the Blizzard Store pets. Others may have most of them though. I guess see if any one else weighs in that has a bunch of them. If not that many people have Blizzard store items, then pre-buying would probably work out. Either way, I'm sure people will be excited to win the blizzard store pets and mounts. If you do decide to pre-purchase, let me know and I can certainly update the list. :)

For the store items, when you buy them you can send them directly to the winner if you are battle tag friends now. So would be easier to get to people if you wait til the party to go it, also it gives them the choice of the one they want if they already have some of them. I'm waiting with the two pets I'm giving out, so people can choose which one they want when they win it.

I am leaning towards offering the choice.  I just have to get over the feeling of leaving money on the table.

Obviously we need to do this earlier next year so we can take advantage of the holiday deals.

Yeah right.  I already bought them and have them halfway leveled. If they go on sale, I buy them.
