I'm pleased to announce the Stormspire.net Mists of Pandaria Guide Contest!
The contest is funded by our Goblineer's WoW Gold Guide / Premium Membership so be sure to check it out!
To enter the contest, create and submit a guide to the Contest Entries forum. We're leaving this one wide open, so your entry can cover almost anything, so long as it has some relation to World of Warcraft! You may submit your entry now, or wait until Mists of Pandaria officially launches. You will have a full month to write up a guide after the launch.
The contest will feature our best prizes yet, so don't miss out! First prize already announced (scroll down).
Bonus TSM Category:
Sapu is graciously offering a bonus prize for the guide which best utilizes TradeSkillMaster in a unique or especially effective manner. You can win this prize by integrating TSM into your guide, or by writing purely about your use of TSM (see Reverb's Enchanting + TSM Guide). The winner of this prize will be chosen by Sapu himself.
- Don't steal content. All entries must be original. Stolen or otherwise plagiarized content will be removed and the user permanently banned from the site.
