Wowhead's Olympic Beta Key Giveaway!

Wowhead is having a giveaway to celebrate the Olympic Games – and this time, your prize is a key to the Wrath of the Lich King beta!

 

Wowhead has five Wrath of the Lich King beta keys to give away as prizes in our little Olympic Game.

 

How to Win:

 We have a sticky thread in the General forums for the contest entries. All you have to do is post a response in the thread, with an idea for a new Achievement for Wrath of the Lich King, like these:

  • High Dive: Fall 65 yards or more into water, without suffering any fall damage.
  • Speed Skating: Skate 100 consecutive yards on ice.
  • Marathon Runner: Run all the way from Booty Bay to Light's Hope Chapel on foot.

Once a day for the next five days, we'll select one poster at random from the thread, announce them in the sticky, and send them a beta key for Wrath of the Lich King! That's right – it really is that simple. You don't need to kiss a boy. You don't need to cook a murloc. You don't even need to respec holy! Just submit an achievement idea, and you're golden!

Please see our official Contest Page for the complete rules!

Apollo's Servant: Complete 100 "Messenger" quests (i.e. go tell stormpike what i think of his mother... then come back here and tell me what he said)

Tri-Athlete: A timed event that must include 5000 yds of running on foot, 25000 yds of mounted running, and 5000 yds of swimming. only 1 form of tranportation allowed between "checkpoints" (would require actual implementation of a quest , rather than tracking of something already accomplished.

Polar Bear Club: Swim in frozen area with no gear (i.e. naked)

Combatant: PVP oriented accomplishment. Lead each battle ground in Killing blows/HK's, Damage done, Healing done, etc... ( pick a stat) at least X number of times.

Keeper of the Flame: Deliver the essence of the fires of Ironforge/Orgrimmar to the frozen wastes of Northrend.

Coach: guide 3 or more players below level 20 through an instance as the group leader.




On a lighter note: Using 10 DK's with deathgrip, and a mage with Living bomb, Pull, pass and punt a gnome ... over the walls of Orgrimmar. That woud be epic. You could play Volley-gnome. Until they died :(
