Participants will need to send in screenshots of each character at level 10. Characters will then need to grow as swiftly as possible and reach Level 50 within the event time period. The first five (5) legions to complete the requirements before May 31 will win a special prize bundle.
“A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed” and“Auction House”
During the entire month of May, watch out for two other major in-game events where players will need to make use of their wide network of friends. By inviting them to play along in-game, players will receive prizes from the“A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed” event. Participants may also wage a bidding war by readying rare and precious items to sell in the“Auction House” event, where fortunes will be made.
