The Season of Giving

December 17th, 2009

I love Christmas time!

One of the things I love the most about it is being able to buy and make gifts for the people I care about, to show them how much they are appreciated throughout the whole year.

And so this year, I decided I’d spread a little love to my budding new guild – Razorblade Arcade.  But what could I do?  I knew I didn’t have time to come up with a special guild event.  Instead, I decided to go the simple route of buying some gifts for every member of the guild.

I would have loved to customize them more, but in the end there was really only one custom component to each gift package.  Here were the contents:

  • 1x[Epic Gem]: I did a be.imba check on my guild and determined which gem was most used by each raider and got one of those cut for each person.
  • 1x[Frost Lotus]: Something everyone needs, especially as we begin progressing through a new raid dungeon!
  • 1x[Paper Zeppelin Kit]: 5 charges of zeppelins sure to keep raiders entertained while listening to those boring boss strategies.
  • 5x[Heavy/Trusty/Zippy Copper Racer]: Because it’s just not Christmas without toy cars!

This was all put together and sent off with a letter from my “anonymous” Orc named “Bladeaclaus” who wished everyone a Happy Winter Veil with a “Ho-ho-ho’ktar ogar!” (Oh, the cleverness of me!)

I even put together a little package for our 1 sub-80 guildie, a 76ish Hunter.  His package included custom-built [Giantmaim Bracers], a [Bright Scarlet Ruby], a [Tickbird Hatchling] and a good ol’ [Heavy Leather Ball].

Sure, it cost me over 2400g to put everything together, and left me with less than 1000g to my name, but I really have no real need for the gold, so I might as well spread the wealth, right?

I hope everyone enjoyed the little surprises in their mailboxes!

And I hope everyone else is having a great time with 3.3 and Winter Veil while I live vicariously through you whilst I study.
