Competition: Win a beta key for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

Don't Horde them all.

"Azeroth paid a terrible price to end the apocalyptic march of the Legion's crusade-but even as the world's wounds are tended, it is the shattered trust between the Alliance and Horde that may prove hardest to mend. As this age-old conflict reignites, join your allies and champion your faction's cause-Azeroth's future will be forged in the fires of war."

World of Warcraft's brand-new expansion Battle for Azeroth is just around the corner now, launching in mid-August and moving the story of Azeroth forward.

However! Our pals over at Blizzard have given us a number of beta keys to give away to lucky readers, allowing early access to the expansion.

For your chance to grab one, we're setting you guys a little creative writing challenge. We want you to write a short social media bio for either your own World of Warcraft character, or an existing character in WoW lore.

Here's an example:

Robust treasure-seeking Dwarf from Khaz Modan. Likes: Hitting things with hammers, Dislikes: High shelves.

...I'm sure you can probably do better than me.

You can enter below - the competition closes at midday on Friday as usual and we'll draw 500 winners to receive a beta key. Good luck!
