Flag of Iron Shards Contest

- Posted in Events by

We're excited to announce a new contest! Due to yesterday's surprise Stronghold sale, we're actually holding the contest a little earlier than planned!

The contest is a raffle with 10 epic mounts and companions, with the possibility of a legendary War Triceratops!

Our Stronghold is in desperate need of Shards of Power to build out the stronghold. While we normally count on the players to earn them by doing Stronghold missions, this sale is a great opportunity to make a big dent in our coffer!

In order to earn a ticket in the raffle, you just need to donate one Stronghold Chest of Power. Normally, these are available from the Zen Market at 300 Zen, but, this weekend, they're 20% off (240 Zen). That's just a little over 100,000 AD at current exchange rates.

What's more, if we have 30 entries, it will unlock a "Grand Prize," the Legendary War Triceratops!

You can earn as many raffle tickets as you want - just send the chests to Siniestro to make sure your entry is counted properly.

All entries must be received by 1 pm Eastern (New York time) on Monday, June 11th!

The Free Corp Shards Contest!

The contest will begin on Thursday March 22 and end on Monday March 26 at 8am eastern. Winners will be announced Monday evening at 8pm eastern. This will be a 4 tier raffle with 10 total winners drawn.

To Enter: YOU HAVE TO MAIL the SH Chests of Power in game to myself NOD@R3DWood0riginal (the O in original is a zero) or to my wife PHOENIX@CopperTopChick.

T1- one chest donated, 4 names drawn will each get a r10 radiant enchantment. T2- two chests donated, 3 names drawn will each get a r11 radiant. T3- 3 chests donated, 2 names drawn will each get a r12 radiant. T4- 4 chests donated, 1 name drawn will get a r13 radiant.

People who are eligible for the higher tier prize/raffle will not entered into the lower tier raffles.

I will repost this message on Slack once each day during the event. If you have any questions message me here or in game.

Thank you all and Good luck!

The Biggest Contest EVER

- Posted in Events by

Hello, Poison Clan!

The end of our Stronghold build is coming into sight. We need to do 8 more upgrades and we're finished!

What we really are Adventurer's Shards and Influence - so we're going to do one last contest!

The contest starts Thursday, March 23rd at the daily reset and will end on Thursday, March 30th, when the 2x Professions event starts in your time zone.

The rules are simple - donate 2000 Influence (PER CHARACTER) to earn a raffle ticket.

You can donate vouchers (from Auction house or from Dragonflight or wherever) or Influence - just save it up until you have 2000.

You can donate multiple times (PER CHARACTER) for extra chances, but it has to be 2000 each time.

You can use as many characters for the contest as you desire.

I'm going to put up a list of prizes later, but they will include:

Uncommon quality (green) mounts

Uncommon quality artifact (green) equipment

Rare (blue) and epic (purple) quality insignia pack

Rare quality (blue) artifacts

Grand Prizes:

Epic quality (purple) Heavy Mystic Nightmare mount

Glorious Resurgence Epic Artifact Pack

1 raffle ticket

So you might ask... WTF, a raffle ticket?

And I say "yes, a raffle ticket... in the other part of this contest."

There are only 59 raffle tickets available for this second drawing, plus 1 ticket as a prize in the Influence contest.

The prize for this second drawing will be a legendary mount!

Once I have the actual mount in hand, I will announce the type (probably a manticore, but it depends on what is the best value in that price range).

In order to qualify for your raffle ticket, email me 5 chests of power. Only chests that are sent to @dread venomous (any character) will count towards a raffle ticket.

We need a minimum of 20 contestants to hold the drawing. Once we have 20 (100 chests), I will start popping the chests to help the build - depositing adventurer's and trying to trade the others.

You are allowed a maximum of 2 raffle tickets - we don't want to discourage donations but we want to force anybody out. If donations are low, I will announce in guild mail that this maximum has been waived and allow existing entrants to acquire more tickets to increase their chances.

Both drawings will be held on Thursday, March 30th, so make sure you deposit your Influence and email your chests before then!

Good luck!!!!

2x Influence and Grand Prize Winners

- Posted in Events by

The Influence contest was an unprecedented success. Posion Clan raised 509,160 influence (that's legit - does not include my own total). In fact, the entire Coffer Buster Contest series blew the lid of off the coffer. We're so close to Gh 20 that you can see sunlight glinting off it over by the Lake. We are almost there.

Here are the players who won prizes in the Influence contest and who won grand Prizes for the series!

Second 2x Influence Contest!

- Posted in Events by

The second week of our Siege of Neverwinter contest is winding down. We'll have the drawing for prizes this weekend. As soon as the event ends tomorrow, 2x Influence is starting up, and that coincides with the fifth and final event in the Coffer Buster Contest series.

I can't stress enough that we are in desparate need of Influence - it will take 2.2 million Influence to finish the build with rank 10 boons. Last time, we raised over 400,000 Influence and I think we can do even more than that this time!

The rules of the contest are simple and the list of prizes is long (see below).

To qualify for a raffle ticket, you must donate 2400 Influence. Each additional 800 Influence donated earns you another ticket.

Each contestant is limited to a maximum of 2 prizes and 1 grand prize in the drawing, unless there are more prizes than contestants - everything goes in this contest.

This gives everyone a fair chance while still allowing players with multiple characters to maximize their chance of winning.

ALSO - any prizes that are not awarded in the second Siege contest will also rollover here. Everything goes in this contest!

The drawing for this contest will be early next week (Monday or Tuesday) and I'll also do the Grand Prize drawings for the "Coffer Buster Contest Series" as a whole at that time. Originally, the drawing would be for players who qualified in all 5 contests. However, the drop rates for the Siege of Neverwinter were horrible for many players and we've also had roughly 40% of the roster turning over since we started the contest series. Because of this, if you have qualified for any contest, you will get a raffle ticket in this drawing.

These are special prizes. Everybody knows about the Apparatus of Gond mount and we're giving away two lillend companions.... but my favorite parizes are 4 epic Angel of Protection Companions that Dreadnought and I donated. These represent 1 year of our time in the game and are a very sentimental prize to my thinking. If you win one, I hope you appreciate the symbolism! :)

Items:

14 dye pack packages - made up from a random selection of 12 different packs - each pack will have at least 4 packs of 1 kind of dye

15 Insignia packs - wide variety of insignia, each pack will have either 1 purple or 3 blue insignia, with the remainder made of green

Siege of Neverwinter Contests

- Posted in Events by

3/3/17 - Clarification: Only Siege vouchers count towards your contest total. Cut off day for week 1 is March 9, 2017 at 6 pm UK time, 1 pm NY time, 10 am Pacific.

Hello, Poison Clan!

This Thursday, The Siege of Neverwinter starts again. This is a two week event that has the potential to blow our build schedule completely out of the water.

If you go to the Master of Coin, she gives you a mission that unlocks Stronghold vouchers from the Siege event and these vouchers can super charge our build!

At our current rate of progress, it will take roughly 15 weeks to get to GH 20, Marketplace 10, and all 4 boons to 10. If everybody jumps in and farms the Siege of Neverwinter for two weeks, we can cut the build time down to as little as 5 weeks. The vouchers are great!

So this is an amazing opportunity, which we've been looking forward to for a couple of months now. Unfortunately, it isn't a lot of fun running around in circles, killing mobs and waiting for voucher drops, so we have put together a contest... actually TWO contests, one for each week of the siege!

If you donate 100 Siege vouchers to the coffer, you will receive a raffle ticket. For each 30 vouchers afterwards, you will receive an additional raffle ticket.

It is that simple. Each week, we'll hold a drawing to find the winners. here are the prize lists, but be aware that we may add even more prizes if you start farming more - we want every raffle ticket to have a minimum value, so more vouchers means I will throw in more prizes!

Here is the list of prizes for the two 1 week contests:

Shards Contest Results

- Posted in Events by

We did a fantastic job with the Shards contest.

26 players donated a total of 136 chests, which brought our total opened for the 2x event to 176!

That raised 35,200 of each Shard type. That gives us about 13% of the Adventurers Shards we need, over 50% each of Dungeoneers and Heroic, and well over 100% of Conqueror's Shards - in fact, we have over 28,000 Conqueror's shards stored among players that can be traded to other guilds for Adventurer's shards!

Of the 26 players, 21 of them donated 5 chests or more, which means I added both of the Glorious Resurgence Epic Artifacts Packs to the special raffle!

Stronghold Chest of Power Contest

- Posted in Events by

Quick Summary:

New Contest. Email me a Stronghold Chest of Power in time for this weekend's contest (deadline is Sunday, February 12 at server reset). You get 1 raffle ticket for each chest, and a special raffle ticket for every 5 chests. Prize list is below.

Detailed Explanation:

We just finished up a wildly successful Influence contest and you guys blew the top off of it.

To help us get to our goal, the next contest is for Stronghold Chests of Power - during 2x Shards weekend!. In an ideal world, we would each buy 10 Stronghold Chests of Power and that would let us finish building the Stronghold.... but remember, donations are NOT and NEVER WILL BE required in Poison Clan - this is 100% volunteer only!

The contest is simple - email a Stronghold Chest of Power to me and you will earn 1 raffle ticket. You will earn 1 additional raffle ticket for every additional chest you send. I have purchased 40 chests to help us get started!

Additionally, for every player who donates at least 5 chests, you get an additional ticket in a special raffle - the prize is an epic Heavy Mystic Nightmare. If 10 players get into that raffle, I will add a Glorious Resurgence Epic Artifacts Pack to that special raffle... and if 20 players get into that raffle, I will add a second Glorious Resurgence Epic Artifacts Pack! Players receive an additional special pool ticket for each 5 chests they donate!

So, run some dungeons and get some salvage. Refine your salvage and convert the AD to Zen and buy some Chests from the Zen market.

Notes:

I will ask some of our newest players to help put the shards into the coffer so that they can use the marks towards Dragonflight Armor or other gear.

Also, some of the shards will be traded to other guilds in exchange for Adventurer's Shards. Almost all the other gauntlets need Conqueror's Shards and we only need 6k to finish the whole build. unfortunately, we need about 260k Adventurers :)

If we get a light response for this, any unclaimed prizes from the general raffle pool will be used in our next contest, during the Siege of Neverwinter event. Unused prizes from the special pool will be liquidated to purchase Chests of power and/or gems for the coffer. If participation is as active as the Influence contest, additional prizes will be added to maintain the value of tickets!

Finally, the marks I get will be converted into scrolls, which i will farm and sell for AD, which i will then use to refine runestones to put in the coffer. Everything goes back to the coffer or to new players who need help with gear!

Players who contribute 5 Chests of Power will receive an additional raffle ticket in a special drawing for an epic Heavy Mystic Nightmare mount (and will receive an additional ticket for each additional 5 chests donated after the first 5).

If a total of 10 players donate 5 chests each, I will add a Glorious Resurgence Epic Artifacts Pack - this will be raffled off in the same pool of tickets as the Heavy Mystic Nightmare mount.

If a total of 20 players donate 5 chests each, I will add another Glorious Resurgence Epic Artifacts Pack to the pool!

Influence Contest Results

- Posted in Events by

Congratulations, Poison Clan!

In 4 days, the guild raised 418,150 Influence - that's over 4,000 Influence per hour!

Because of all the players who jumped in and helped out (and all the raffle tickets they were awarded), I had to add a lot of prizes to the mix.

Take a peek at the attached screen shot for the winners lists and I'll get to work mailing the prizes to everyone!

Amazing job!

Prizes and winners!

"Coffer Buster" Influence Contest!

- Posted in Events by

I'm pleased to announce the first event in our "Coffer Buster Contest Series," the 2x Influence Contest!

Remember, every player that qualifies for at least one raffle ticket in each of our contests will earn a raffle in our final grand prize drawing!

The first contest is an influence contest, to take advantage of the 2x Influence weekend running from February 2nd until February 6th.

During that 5 day period, your character must donate 2400 Influence in order to earn a raffle ticket in the contest drawing.

To Qualify:

For each character that donates 2400 Influence during the event, the player receives 1 raffle ticket.

Each additional 800 Influence (for each qualifying character) awards an additional raffle ticket.

Whenever you donate influence, email KAY, who will verify it.

There are 6 activities that allow you to raise Influence for free (remember that these amounts DOUBLE during 2x Influence weekends):

Stronghold Heroic Encounters - maximum of 400 Influence per day per character

Strongbox of Influence dropped during Dragonflight - worth 400 if deposited unopened, worth 2000 in vouchers if unlocked

Stronghold Boon Structure missions - mission per character for every 20 hour period. These include:

Stable - Race (Whispering Caverns) worth 40 Influence, takes 3 minutes or less

Barracks - 4 Heroic Encounters (Well of Dragons) worth 100 Influence - the HEs also drop refinement, potions, Tyranny currency, and occasional artifact equipment

Explorer's Guild - retrieve 12 chipped mugs from opening Skill nodes - worth 100 Influence, easy to run while doing other content

Temple - kill 30 enemies in the stronghold - worth 20 points (will increase as Temple is upgraded) - easy to complete while running HEs

Influence is also available from vouchers obtained off the auction house or from Stronghold Starter Packs (Zen market)

Some events (like the upcoming Siege of Neverwinter) also drop vouchers worth varying amounts.

We're going to need a little over 4.4 million Influence to finish our Stronghold build, and we currently have about 500,000 of that, so the 2x Influence event is a huge opportunity for us that can make quite a difference in our plans!

Strategies:

Run multiple heroic encounters and "bank" the completions - open 5 each day of the event so that you don't have to farm them that day.

Run multiple characters - the contest is designed to give everyone a fair chance at prizes without punishing players who run extra characters and play longer hours.

Save and donate Influence boxes and vouchers. They don't double but do count towards your total!

Prizes to be raffled:

Moonshae Druid, uncommon
