Last weekend, Deeprun Pest Control held the Monkey Island event on Aggramar. Visitors came from far afield: both Horde and Alliance alike were present, including many from far-off servers…
The first event was a 9-way class vs class battle in the Gurubashi Arena to see which class could successfully open the treasure chest. It didn’t take long for the mages to be victorious, but this may have been because some classes were just having too much fun ganking their favourite anti-class.
The class battle was followed by a scavenger hunt across Stranglethorn Vale. Following the clues given, the brave adventurers set off in search of such rare items as a message in a bottle and a cockatiel, before finally finding the elusive Buygrush to deliver the items in person.
The penultimate event was the much anticipated costume contest. Judging the winners was tough, there were many great entries, but eventually 3 clear winners emerged. The 2 runners-up were Pandiani (as Medivh) and Tamber (as an Orc Grunt), each of whom won a “Pet Biscuits” TCG card.
The winner of the contest was a dwarf named Balarak, dressed up as an Irridiated Sentry gnome from Gnomeregan (complete with Alarm Bot pet). He was awarded the grand prize of a Beta key for Wrath of the Lich King.
The final event was a spectacular cliff-top fireworks display. Tens of thousands of fireworks went up in smoke in a stunning display.
A video of the costume contest and the fireworks display was recorded by a visiting cameraman, Existensa. An outtakes video is also available courtesy of Wietkop.
We’d like to thank Skypheonix for organising yet another highly successful and memorable event, and to everyone who attended: thank you for coming, and we hope you had a good time!
Also thanks to the 2 GMs who turned up to show us their moves!
