Zygor Guide Contest Winners

…I’d like to get some input from you if I could. It’s been over a month now since I named the winners. I imagine most of you have had a chance to play around with the addon for awhile..?

Have you enjoyed the guides?

Have they made questing easier?

Were you able to burn through levels on your alt faster than ever thought humanly possible?

As I’d mentioned towards the end of this post, I’d like for you to just post some comments at the end of that review, letting myself and others know what you think of the guide.

So if you get a chance, I’d appreciate it if you could let me know how you’re getting on with it.

Post your comments here.

Thanks. :)

We Have Some Winnahs!

A few hours ago I selected the winners for the Zygor Guides contest. During my highly complex & scientific, yet random selection process… two entries resulted in a draw, so there were actually six winners!

I’ve notified Zygor Guides of the winners, as well as the winners themselves. So, if you were one of the lucky half-dozen, expect to see a golden ticket in your inbox soon. As soon as I get the winner’s guide of choice selections back, I’ll forward the details to Zygor Guides and you guys will be on the fast track to leveling mania, or getting rich via dailies, which ever you decide.

The Journal of Huugg Staffshatter, Son of the Frostwolf Clan

Day One of the Second Year In The Warchief’s Charge

Huugg, Orc Hunter

It has been a long, cold journey to Northrend…

Many of the soldiers on the journey with me have been severely frostbitten. A troll named Tar’jit fell asleep in the bottom of the zeppelin, never to awake. He had died of hypothermia.

I spoke with some of the other warriors in the Second Legion while we made the trip from Orgrimmar to Warsong Hold. One of them had been stationed in Dragonblight for a month before he’d been sent back to Kalimdor to be treated for wounds sustained while fighting at the Wrathgate. He spoke of the legendary empire of the undead Scourge, tales of behemoth spiders withering away from thousands of years of decay, and of the hated Lich King, Arthas.

He told many stories to those of us new to Northrend. Most were frightening tales, worse than any I had heard before. Nothing I had experienced during my tour of duty at Hellfire Peninsula one year previous would even come close to the horrors I was likely to encounter in Northrend.

Yet, there was one story of his that enchanted me… one that grabbed me… [Read more…]

A big round of applause

…for… Huugg!

Huugg was the big winner in this past week’s Celestial Steed Mount Contest. :D

Like I said yesterday, this was no easy choice for me. Truth be told, I had 4 for consideration, with 3 of the entries as winners during various times of the judging.

Huugg’s ended up being my eventual choice for a few reasons…

For one, I just really liked the story. I thought that he did a nice job developing the plot and the characters, including Narvas of course. [Read more…]

This is not going to be easy

Celestial SteedI’ve read all of the Celestial Steed Contest entries and have even re-read a few of them. I’ve gotta say, I’m thoroughly impressed with the thought and work that had gone into some of these submissions. It’s also been an absolute delight (yes, I just used that word) reading these. Some of them have moved me, rallied me, made me chuckle, and even flat-out laugh.

Excellent work people! :) I had no idea what to expect going into this, as it was a very impulsive and whimsical plan to host this contest. I must say… the response to this exceeded my expectations. :D

So, here’s where I’m at… Although I do intend on announcing the winner sometime this evening, I need a little more time. This is going to be a tough decision, so I need to be sure I’m making the right one. I’m going to read through the top submissions as many times as needed, until I feel like I’ve chosen the one I perceive to be the best. In other words, the one I like the most. ;)

In addition to the winner’s submission, I’d also like to publish the other stories from those participants I view to be the next runner-ups. I think it would be unjust to limit the audience to only me. Regardless of which story I personally like best, I feel a few of these should be shared with the entire hunter community here at HuntsmansLodge.com. [Read more…]
