Another February rolls around, another year Darkwind celebrates as a guild. This year, Darkwind turned 8!
Our events this year was a short collection of our "best of games" from previous anniversary parties. A Steam Tonk Tournament at Krasus Landing (grats, Bloodshox on winning!), a Dazzling Rod Tournament that became like a Lazer Tag game in the Darkmoon Faire forest (grats, Malfrost for winning a JewelCraft toy for having the longest kill streak of 11), Shoeboots winning the transmog contest, and Growliebear grabbing the prize for winning our trivia! Everyone in attendance /rolled for the final mount prize, with Henessy rolling a solid 100.
