Recently with focus on raiding and gearing-up, etc…it seemed like we needed some tension breaking in the guild. Everyone was getting too uptight. So I came up with a plan to have a wild night of fun with my guildies in-game and on ventrilo.
This event never had an official title. I referred to it as something different every time… so if you use my idea, maybe you can be more creative and come up with a better name than “Wild Night” or “EK Raw…” whatever.
The first plan was to have a naked run-through contest. I tested this out with a friend beforehand to see what two naked 85s could handle, and I came up with Utgarde Keep. It is hard enough that you can actually die in there if you get crazy, but it is low enough to handle if done correctly.
I then paired everyone with a team member that would be a good match. Everyone either got someone like a hunter or warlock on their team (pets help), or they got someone who could toss a heal and res. We had five or six teams participate.
There were a few rules. The main rule was you had to be completely naked…only tabards were allowed for the shy and some gray level 70-74 weapons for melee users. I mailed the gray items to everyone that was going to be there that needed them beforehand. (Quick note on that- gray shields are very low drop rate… I bought mine from a vendor in Storm Peaks.)
Healers were not allowed to be in healing spec, they had to go dps or tank spec. Any class abilities like healthstone, etc. could be used besides that. You were allowed to skip any mobs possible.
I was paired with a healing shaman who went enhancement for this event. At the last minute though, I had to get my husband, a pro protection paladin, to fill in on another team for someone who didn’t show. My husband always wins every WOW contest, so I knew this could be bad.
When we started, I know my team was ahead. My felguard was tanking, and we started skipping mobs after the first room. Then on vent, I hear that my husband’s team is already past the first boss…WHAT? Both teams made it to the last boss at the same time, but since they had the lead they did end up winning.
My teammate blamed me of course because I died when he ran off and left me. :( wahhh Oh well.
The second event planned for this event was drinking games on vent. I am not recommending this to every guild, because this could maybe get too wild for some people. However, my guild is pretty tame so I didn’t have too many concerns about it.
The first game we did was WOW trivia. I have used the trivia addon in the past but found that the questions are too hard for newer players. So I wrote my own trivia questions. I had 20 questions that I read out on vent, and the first person to type the answer in guild won. Some complained this was not fair to slower typers, but since not everyone had mics, that is how we rolled. If you missed, you drank. During this time, we had dueling outside Stormwind.
The second game was a dice game using /roll. Here are the rules:
Roll two dice. Anything that adds up to six (i.e. 2-4,5-1) or has a six in it (i.e. 6-1, 6-2, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4, 6-5), you drink a “good” gulp of beer. Any time you roll double 2s, 4s, or 5s you drink that many (2, 4, or 5) “good” gulps of beer (You can modify this to just one “gulp” on doubles). If you roll double 3s you are penalized twice, for getting doubles and adding up to six. Thus four “good” gulps (or 2 if you play the modified rules). The killer is double 1s or double 6s. For this you do a SHOT of your favorite poison (i.e. JD, Southern Comfort, tequilla, etc). Lastly…you continue rolling until you get something that you don’t drink on (i.e. 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 2-3, 2-5, 3-4, 3-5, 4-5). If you roll the dice off the table, you are also rewarded with a gulp of beer.
This game was to get those of us left pretty drunk for the last game, which was “I Have Never.” You say something you have never done….Anyone who HAS done it has to say so in vent and drink. Needless to say, this got a bit personal, so just a warning. You have to be willing to air your life stories pretty much. This went on until 12a-1a.
It was a fun night!
