WoWeekly: Win Over $200,000 in Cash Prizes, Join The 2010 WoW Arena Tournament

By Lia

I normally don’t care about the PVP aspect of WoW (I’m a raider!) but the announcement banner at the World of Warcraft website totally caught my eye.


“Earn a Murkimus, Become a Vanquisher and Complete for over $200,000 in Cash Prizes!”

I thought, “What the hell is a Murkimus?” After clicking on a few links, I got the answer:  a Murkimus is an exclusive Armored Murloc in-game pet.

AMG! Let me say it again, an ARMORED Murloc in-game pet! Screw the $200,000 cash pricez, I just want the pet, haha!
