(Ended) Another Winter Veil giveaway (US)

Postby Pyrephoenix » December 22nd, 2015, 4:20 am

Hi and happy Winter's Veil!

I've been exceptionally lucky over the last few weeks and hope to pass the luck onward. I have been able to acquire a full set of each of the three Raiding with Leashes criteria pets and 12 of the 13 engineer-created pets (I won't have the time before the end of the contest period to make all the Jard's Sources for Pierre). When Lil' Bling saw me collecting, he grabbed his pet Spirit of Summer and insisted on helping with a giveaway (you know how generous those Bling robots can be) so they'll be part of the RWL2 pack.

Much like Madja's giveaways, there's a request and an entry requirement: first the request, which Azaelia put better than I could (here):
To be in with a chance of winning one of these goodies I would like to respectfully ask those who already own these gifts to please (...) enter for fun and state they have the prize rather then sell them on.

Edit: if you only need part of a prize you are still welcome to enter, this is not meant to only be for people who don't have any of these pets. I would request that you gift the pets that you don't need on to someone else who does.

And the way to enter: Take the pet whose acquisition meant most to you--lucky drop after lots of farming, given by significant other, etc--and visit the place in-game where you think your character will likely retire, and send us a screenshot. Don't forget to explain it!

I'll assign entries a number as they come in (likely once/day) and upon contest close, will /roll that number in-game. Anyone online can whisper me to join the group if they like--Corhianne on Nesingwary--and will provide screenshots of the rolls.

Prizes (again, US region only):
1. Raiding with Leashes 1
2. RWL 2 (plus Lil' Bling & Captured Summer Flame)
3. RWL 3
4. Engineering pets

This contest will run until midnight Eastern time (Greenwich -5) on New Year's Eve Dec 31, since I started so late, we'll give folks time to enter. I'll do the /roll at 6PM Eastern on Jan 1.

I think I covered everything. If you have questions, please ask! Pets are held with my bank alt on Nesingwary (yes, I never renamed the tab >_>): Image


--------------------
Entries:
1. Fahra
2. Yazlor
3. Misteltoe
4. N0083rp00f
5. Toki

"Pay-it-forward":
Lunarific

I missed my own deadline, thanks to the cable going out. /Rolling in 15 minutes (7PM Eastern, Hannalore on Nesingwary-US).

Thank you so much for doing this!
I already own a few pets out of each set you have listed, but will happily take only the ones I still need, if that's allowable =)
My favorite pet is Zao. I loved that little yak as soon as I saw him online. The first time I saw a character with him in-game I almost cried at how beautiful he was. Zao was the reason I ran the Celestial Tournament. At the time I had very few high-level pets, so I spent the better part of three months crying in frustration as I died again, and again, and again in the tournament, only to go out and level more pets to try once more.
Zao was worth it all.
I plan to retire to Half Hill to help Yoon with his farming. It's so peaceful there, especially in the rain. I love the band, and I love my neighbors. Out of character, I always have a toon parked in their farm so that when I'm having a rough day I can log on, hear the beautiful music...and, if I'm lucky, see the rain.

That's really nice of you to do this! :)

It seems that most people already have those pets though, and a shame that there's only one entry so far... I always like to give pets away to friends/guildies, was wondering if you would mind me entering on the proviso that I give anything I win away to people who need the pets? (I have all of them already.) Of course, if more people who actually need the pets enter then you can disregard this completely. :P

Yeah, I was hoping to draw in the "just getting started" and "RNG's a (dirty word)" folks. Excellent suggestion: when January rolls up on us, if I don't have enough entries for all four prizes I'll do a secondary set of rolls for any community members who would like to hold random home-server giveaways (enter as normal but specify you're entering for a pay-it-forward drawing).

Hello,

Thank you for the kind give-away contest. I have some but not all of the pets offered in the collection and if I win will gift duplicates. It is taking me forever to explore Azeroth and collect all the beasties! Alternate characters always distract me from my plans...

I began my adventures as a Night Elf Druid and the Sprite Darter Hatchling was available as a quest reward for Alliance characters. I was tickled with this little fairy dragonkin and it initiated my intrigue with companion animals.

The time I had available to play WoW significantly decreased as my teenage sons interest in WoW was growing, so he took over my account. Years later, I found Cataclysm under the Christmas tree from my son. I started a new account but missed my lil fairy beastie. When Mists of Panderia came out I fell in love with battlepets; "gotta catch them all". Sadly, the Sprite Darter Hatchling was no longer available via quest so I began a mission to capture one in the wild.

Over the years, every character created, Alliance and Horde conducted a mandated battle stint through Feralas. I left a swathe of shredded Noxious Whelp wings in my path. The Sprite Darter Hatchling seemed forever unattainable to me ~ until I stationed my mage, Squeaklet, in New Thalanar and finally one day, a Grimtotem Marauder released one for me! I named this one "Addiction" as it was this pet that drove my fascination with pet collecting.

Squeaklet is an alchemist who enjoys gardening, she will retire to her garrison flower patch. By then, she will have completed Draenor Pathfinding and can hop on her Enchanted Fey Dragon mount to go anywhere.
Image

Besides, she is a mage, she can leave the heavy lifting in the capable hands of her Human manservant and summon portal where ever her heart desires!
Image
Like picnicing with old mates at the resort in Feralas Mountains, just south of Camp Mochaje and New Thalanaar where she captured her Addiction.
Image
Or flying over rolling hills and through the majestic purple skys of Nagrand searching for new pets.
Image
Retirement is the beginning of new adventures...

Like several others, I need some but not all of a given set. I would have you keep what I do not need in order for someone else to have a chance at the pets.

Thank you for doing this.

The little Blue fellow was a goal I had set for myself the moment I decided to have anything to do with pets. Even though more and greater challenges have come, and a few met, since then, this one was my first and is still near and dear to my heart.

As for the location, outside of any bar or pub, this place feels most like home. With good friends and a brew or three near at hand, yet still has the tranquil beauty without the scars caused by the unthinking actions of others.

[image to follow once I have my 8 posts yet not spam] The top of the hill behind our farm in Panderea.

Like others I have a scattering of the pets already and would not want to deprive any other collectors of the opportunity.

Thank you for this wonderful idea. I also have some of the ones to win and will gladly let you give them away to someone else or I can give them to friends or guildies.
I could not decide on my fav pet as there are so many but the Kirin Tor Familiar stayed in my heart for spending SO MUCH time in Dalaran to get these books. Thank you to all those lovely people in trade who helps out others to get this pet at a time when not a lot were collecting them as madly as my daughter and I.
I just joined this fantastic website over Christmas, though I used it for any years. Thank you for all the effort everyone puts in.
To all a happy holiday season and ALL THE BEST FOR THE NEW YEAR! Good luck with your pet collection
My place to retire is in my garrison - all my pets there is the best feature of it.

Contest entry period has ended and I'll be /rolling in just a few moments.

Image

It's a little small; the final line says "The first four unique rolls were 4,5,1, and 2; our winners are N0083rp00f, Toki, Fahra, and Yazlor. As per the contest entry rules, I still need a photo from N0083rp00f; it doesn't have to be posted on the forum as long as you can give an image link."

N0083rp00f, the easiest way to do this is to upload your image to imgur.com, then to post it here, edit your post with the end of the address: just tell us it's "/(address) on imgur." and sub out (address) with whatever the random letters they give you are. Please do so before 7PM on Jan. 3, or I will pass your entry.

Edit: this is why I don't run raffles :oops: . Misteltoe (and Lunarific, should we end up in previously discussed situation), I also need an image submission from you in order to consider your entry valid. I apologize to everyone for not bringing this up earlier. Same thing as for N0083r, doesn't have to be posted here as long as it's linked.

Toki, Fahra, Yazlor, I've sent in-game mail to your WarcraftPets profile toons on your respective servers to confirm that I typed your names correctly. Once you reply I'll send through your prize packages. N0083rp00f, we already connected in-game; you should have mail waiting (if you haven't already picked it up).

Fahra, you didn't list a full 12 pets. I took the liberty of looking through your wanted pets here to see what others I might be able to award you. I hope I chose well.

Edit: Fahra, Yazlor, your prize packs have been sent. With the hour's mail delay, they should both be available for pickup in the next 5-10 minutes (as of 9:45PM Eastern).

Second edit: Toki, I just got your confirmation email and sent your packet. Should be available about 2:50AM Eastern.
