Get Married In-game, Set a World Record
2012/02/07 at 10:27 AM
Over at ZAM,
the whole staff is participating in setting a world record on February 14th
on RIFT. Anyone who gets hitched on Valentine's Day in RIFT will be helping RIFT set a world record of the most virtual marriages in a single day in a video game. Five of the lucky newly weds will even earn some special accolades from the RIFT devs themselves.
The idea of a MMORPG being in the book of world records is beyond cool to me and so is coming together as a community on a singular day, so I'm all for it. You can even get married using a trial version of the game.

As an added bonus, comment in this post how online gaming has played a role in your relationship (or friendships, if you're going stag this holiday)! One winner will receive their choice of a Blizzard store pet.
Wowhead's Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Sweepstakes
2012/02/03 at 5:31 PM
This giveaway is now closed. We will be emailing and announcing winners on Monday.
If you visit Wowhead, you're probably like me and you love RPGs. This means you have more than likely heard of the upcoming
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
--an open-world RPG of an immense scale that lets you define your own destiny and story (check out the demo
, if you're interested). It also means you more than likely want your own copy.
And if that's the case, then I have some awesome news for you.
We have six
special edition Reckoning game bundles
which include maps, cards, and the game itself to give away at Wowhead this week and next. To top it off, we're giving away a grand prize of
a collector's edition of Reckoning
which includes everything in the special edition along with some added bonuses: a 12.5" troll figure and a lithograph signed by Ken Rolston! As I'm told, only 700 of these unique sets have been produced, so this is pretty sweet.
We'll be giving them away at 12:01PM PDT next Friday, February 10th, 2012. To enter to win, all you have to do is the following...

Giveaway is now closed: thanks for all of the creative entries! We will be announcing winners soon after we read through everything.
2012 is here and while the first week of the year comes to a close, there's one thing everyone wants to know about: New Year's resolutions. From in-game to the real world, every year millions of people make them--and then either stick to them with admirable resolve or crumble under pressure once the holidays are over.
Thanks to the generous folks at
, I've even got some gifts to hand out to those who answer
well. Ten commenters will receive one
Wooly White Rhino
each while another ten commenters will receive one
ball each. It gets even better, too; as an added bonus, the first five winners of the rhino code will also receive a box set of
Scott Pilgrim novels
which includes a poster as their grand prize!
Reply to this post and tell me what your New Year's resolutions are--either in-game or out--to be entered to win.

SWTOR Beta Key Giveaway
2011/11/14 at 12:13 PM
Star Wars: The Old Republic is coming out next month and the beta has been in gear for quite some time. Many of the Wowhead staff members, myself included, have spent their share of time with the force lately and loved it. Unfortunately, the beta has been hard to get into for many fans beyond a weekend stress test. This week, however, we've got a chance for you to get in easily!
Our parent site,
, is giving away 25,000 beta keys for SWTOR on a first come, first serve basis. Yes,
keys. We'd love for you to support them by entering their giveaway and trying out SWTOR. All you have to do is sign-up for a ZAM account and you get a free key instantly sent to you--while supplies last, of course.
Please note that this is a key for their next testing phase, which will start shortly--BioWare will be emailing you an invite based on the email you redeem the code with.

Oh, and as a disclaimer: this post isn't the place to start SWTOR versus WoW wars. Save that for another website; we love all kinds of MMORPGs here at Wowhead.

Deathwing Kill Video
I made this a few days ago for Tankspot--it's just me killing Deathwing on the final encounter of Dragon Soul from this week's PTR. I realized I never shared it, though!
A few words on the fight: first off, it's really fun. It looks boring when you see a video, because it's just generally boring to watch videos anyway; the gist of the fight is that you gain buffs, you have to dynamically jump to the platform, and the

League of Legends Sweepstakes
2011/08/20 at 3:56 PM
It's been a while since we here at Wowhead have hosted an old-fashioned sweepstakes. Thanks to the wonderful folks at
, though, that's all about to change. From this weekend to next, we're giving away prizes--all in support of
League of Legends
What's League of Legends, you might ask? Simple: one of the best games out right now. It's been taking the gaming community by storm recently and even the pro-gaming circuits are playing it. With dozens of champions and intense gameplay, LoL is one of those games that's easy to get into but incredibly hard to master. In other words, it's addictive--and what gaming's all about. You don't have to take my word for it, either;
it's free to play so you can start whenever you'd like
and see if it appeals to you.
Anyway, about that sweepstakes we're hosting. Thanks to Riot and Razer, every day for the next seven days, we
