COMPETITIONS - BY ARANESH
Happy Holidays!

Jan 3 Edit:
Submissions are now closed and winners will be announced later today :-)

Dec 28 Edit:
We have one more pet to give away, the Archivist's Quill (on North America servers). Thanks NIteowl1970 for donating it :-)
And we love all the poems. It's amazing to see what you all come up with :)



We hope you are all in a festive mood and ready to relax, rewind, reenergize. It's a very special and also weird time but there is only one thing that could possibly stop you from having a wonderful time: You :-)
So don't be a grinch, accept things as they are, treat yourself well, do what's good for you and your loved ones within the limitations we have this year and you'll see, things will be fine :)

To make it a little bit sweeter, we're hosting a big Giveaway over the holidays! You can win one of the following:

  • 2x One Month Gametime (US)
  • 1x One Month Gametime (EU)

Prizes are sponsored by Blizzard EU (codes) and our very own Remte (EU pets), thank you!

How to participate?



Write us a poem! Ideally, use a winter theme, celebration of light and obviously pets, but the choice is yours.
Same for style, length, verses - all up to you.
Sticking to the good old AABB rhyme? No problem. Fancy a Haiku? Sure thing! Rather go freestyle? Absolutely!
Anything goes, just let your creativity carry you away :-)

Just post your poem here in the comments before the end of January 2nd and on the day after we'll draw and announce the winners!
If you are not posting with a Xu-Fu account, you must include the region your playing in and some way to contact you.

Never tried poety but here's a haiku.

The solstice has come
Bearing a legion of pets
For us to collect

You said that a haiku would work, and I ran low on time, so here goes:

Late though I may be
I want to participate
Hoping to win pets

Christmas cheer
Leads to new year
More pets for all
No need to brawl
We'll clear the maw
I know this for I have foresaw

As snow reflects the winter moon
And the stars shine clear and bright
I gather all my tiny toons
And gear up for a fight.

My little Snowman freezes all
My Runt's spike will impale
While Winter's Little Helper gives
The Gift of Winter's Veil.

My Boneshard friend provides a chill
Valk fills them with despair
But peace on earth and all goodwill
Comes from my Arctic Hare.

That fuzzy bun just dodges all
And burrows far from harm
Not even Plushy Elek's got
That bunny's gift of charm.

So be ye hearty, hale, and true
And be all of good cheer
As Bun Bun wishes all of you
The happiest New Year!

This will be the best Winter Vale yet!
First the preparations, it all begins with step one.
Don't forgot to have some fun!
Let's open the box of holiday cheer.
We must decorate everywhere!
Tinsel on the tree and holly by the door.
Glitter and bling, there must be more! More!
Wrap the presents neatly under the tree.
Such a display for all to see!
Step two, I begin to bake.
A nice plump holiday cake.
Wait.. What is that crashing!
Into the room I am dashing.
Scattered ornaments all around.
Crashed to the ground.
And what do my panicked eyes see.
A tinsel wrapped Lucy.
Well even ghost cats needs some cheer.
I pick her up with a tisk and oh dear.
Into the kitchen I find my greatest fear.
Such horror and plight!
The cake was halved by a ghostly bite.
I guess Frostwolf Ghostpup's likes sweets too.
This leaves one thing to do.
Gathering my furry, scaled, and ghostly friends near.
It is time to celebrate and remember this year.
Its ups and down and moments of great delight.
The greatest gift is their presence this blessed night.
For you see, Winter Veil is not just about stuff.
It is the company that is enough.

Winter time, Christmas time
Seasonal pets are hard to remember
But this year when the bell chime
The snowy owl became mine!

A new year arrives
Cold air brings change to the world
Training starts anew

Now this is a story, all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became hooked on hunting pets (rare)!

In endgame content, born and raised
Mythic raiding was where I spent most of my days
Stressing out, fighting, defeating the dark
But after 10 long years it was no longer a lark
When a couple of guys, who were chillin in guild
Told me of a new collection I could build
I caught one little pet and then I was scared
I knew that I'd never been happy unless they were rares!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everyone!

Hello I am Ikky
I move rather quicky
when I've done my time
I bring out a slime
and leave my foes rather sticky

Jingles plays with snow
Rotten Little Helper is slow
[weather(snow storm).exists]
And snowball hits
Rotten Helper gets mad
… Jingles is dead

Winter veil is the time of year
when we all lift a mug and cheer
Then set out to battle our best
to conquer, win, and beat the rest

Now the season comes to close
as I sit here and write this prose
of Pets in Battle and Winter spent
This has been my entertainment.

Thanks to WoW, Xu-Fu, and all of You
may your 2021 be ever bright
Your Pet battles won are fast and true
through all the day and night.

Xu-Fu is the place to go
To learn how to beat your pet's foes
Their guides cannot be beat
and good fortune will you greet.
Have a great Holiday all
When called to battle, answer the call!
Whether you are for the Alliance or the Horde,
May nothing but goodies appear at your door!
