Apples Heroic DS Tag-Along Sweepstakes

If you want to join the Apples' community, register to the forums and let Ellach know you've done so. We like new people to lurk and troll us.

What's going on?
Apples will be opening our main-raid to a few fellow hordies each week to come along and kill internet dragons with us. We are doing this to expose people to raiding that may not otherwise have the opportunity to. This is in no way an attempt to recruit you for Apples, you will stay in your current guild, we just want to invite other SoEers to come along with us for the raiding experience and to get to better know the SoE community.

Each week we will bring along a couple new players and they will clear through the entire heroic mode Dragon Soul with us. Those randomly picked will be invited the day of the raid, given a brief explanation of what to do for each boss fight, and allowed to experience the raid content and the Apples raiding environment.

What do you get?
- 8/8 Heroic Dragon Soul.
- Savior of Azeroth title.
- Any achievements that are doable on heroic mode difficulty.
- Any gear that drops and you are eligible for, free of cost.
- Mounts that drop (Apples raiders have priority, but almost done)
- A good time ;)

When?
Every Tuesday at 7 server time from August 7th till Pandas!
It's good to be on earlier for invites and instruction (6:30 server time is ideal).
We'll try to give you ample notice of your day.

How do you enter sweepstakes?
Head to our forums and post in the General Public section under the stickies thread.
Website: http://www.ApplesGuild.com
Direction link to thread: http://applesguild.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=7292
Can post as a guest or register and get approved. Check the guidlines listed for that :)

Post there with your toon's name and the specific days you wish to be entered:
Aug. 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th
Sept. 4th, 11th, 18th

If you can't make a certain day due to other obligations, don't put that day and you'll be skipped over for that particular day but not the others. If something sudden comes up, let us know ASAP, as people can only win once and if you miss your chance... you miss your chance.

If you can make all of them, just say all of them.

Additional Info:
Everything is free. No gold required.

People will be picked at random. We will try to draw with enough time for long enough advanced notice.

You only need to be level 85 with a DPS or Heal spec to enter. If you're a main-spec tank, you can't tank for us unfortunately, but you're free to DPS in whatever gear you have. Gear quality and experience is not a factor.

We also ask that you be able to listen on Ventrilo and follow simple instructions. Talking is not required.

We also hold the right to refuse anybody access to this sweepstakes, but I don't know why we would. Just thought that sounds good to throw in there for extreme cases.

Feel free to ask any questions regarding this sweepstakes to an Apples officer (Kuruption, Algebra, Christel, Malakoji) or post here or on our forums (now open to all of SoE).

Hope to see you guys soon!

Please note: Achievements are account-wide as of Mists. So if you're an ally main with an 85 Horde alt kicking around, you'll have the achievement on your main once the Mists patch rolls in! :D :D :D

Can't wait to do this, going to be loads of fun!

EDIT: Also, don't whisper Malakoji, since Ellach forgot I race changed. He does that sometimes. Whisper Martahn instead, its the same guy, just a new name. He's also cuddlier than any other officers.

FIXED :D

First thanks to Apples for doing something like this.

On the flip side what is the iLvL requirement for heroic?

Edit: Because "s" key decided to quit for a instance.

This has to be one of the best good samaritan type proposals I have ever heard of in game. It has given me a whole new level of respect for apples. As much as I would love to cave your horde skulls in; I respect and admire you.

If you're asking specifically for our run, there isn't one. You could be in greens and we'd still bring you if you won for that particular day.

If you're asking in a normal guild group run, then probably 390ish with the 30% nerf for the first 6 and high 390s/lower 400s for the last 2.

Edit: Thanks for everyone who's signed up so far, I was surprised at the numbers we've already received on the first day. Hopefully you all have as much fun as we will.
