Just in case you haven't caught up on our competition rules, you can check them out here. You need to give your answers in a reply to this post. We will not accept any other forms of entry. You can check back here for new clues on the last day of the competition. All answers that you submit will remain hidden until we can see that 10 people have got the answer. This will not affect the time of entry in any way, the forum will keep track of that for us.
Today's clues will be about an NPC within the current live patch of Warlords of Draenor. It can be found somewhere within the game at this moment, either on Azeroth, Outland or Draenor. The post will be closing at 18:00 CET on 30th December, 2015.
Good luck and remember: Don't waste your guesses!
Clue 1


No allegiance yet made, she requested his aid.

Clue 2
Unveiled on our Twitter at 22:00 CET.
Clue 3
Unveiled on our Twitter at 03:00 CET.
Clue 4
Unveiled on our Twitter at 13:00 CET.
The contest has finally come to a close! Today’s answer was: Gunther Arcanus. Now he may not be the most well-known NPC, but he’s pretty damn cool. Let’s look at our clues:

Clue 1: Gunther, after freeing himself from the Lich King (this is a pretty incredible feat to do so by oneself), never allied himself with any faction. He sat on an island alone, surrounded by the mindless dead. He believed every undead was like those around him and in the Scourge.


It wasn’t until a book of a Lich was uncovered that the Forsaken and Sylvanas finally remembered him. Through his old friend, Bethor Iceshard, you make contact with this incredibly powerful being and convince him that there is a faction of undead free from the Lich King.


Clue 2: Before his death in the Third War, Gunther was actually a mage and necromancer within the Kirin Tor. He was an incredibly powerful mage in life, and even more so in death. One of the books within The Violet Citadel lists him as one of the casualties of the war.


Clue 3: This references the fact that he was surrounded by that which he feared he had become; the mindless dead wander around the island and he believed this was everything the undead was capable of.


Clue 4: This references the fact that the island on which he is camped is in the middle of Brightwater Lake, in Tirisfal Glades. It is directly in view of the Undercity, hence the city of the banshee royalty, Sylvanas.


Points for Day 5

  2. Nocturnez: 80 Points
  3. SnappleJesus: 65 Points

I don't know if it's ok, but my first answer wasn't entirely correct, the NPC is Shade of Aran, but i only wrote the Person, Nielas Aran.

      Today, we release our Path of Exile site. It is not entirely finished yet, but the content is there and we felt comfortable sharing it with Path of Exile players from our current audience.
      This is a project that we have been working on for quite some time (so nothing to do with the recent Diablo announcements or lack thereof). We developed a CMS from the ground up, using our many years of experience with Icy Veins as a basis for the various features we required on the publishing side of the site. We also added things such as a proper item database or a dev tracker. These are things we can't have on Icy Veins, because the tech the site is running on would not permit it. Hopefully, one day we can run Icy Veins on our new tech and do all these things, if we feel like it.
      As I was saying above, the site is not 100% ready, but it is very close in terms of features. We worked hard in the past two weeks to fix all major bugs, so that end users can have a smooth experience, and we have enough content to cover the currently most popular builds. So we are waiting for your feedback!

      Currently you will find the following things on the site: guides and news for Path of Exile, an item database (still missing out a couple of base items), a dev tracker (Official Forums + Twitter + Reddit), and of course forums where people can discuss about that game.
      Our guide offering is currently as follows:
      Triple Herald Blade Vortex Elementalist Build Arc Mines Saboteur Build Guide Glacial Cascade Mines Saboteur Build Guide Ancestral Warchief Ascendant Build Guide Ascendant Hit Elemental Build Guide Aurabot Ascendant, 8 Auras Build Guide The Cleave Ascendant Build Guide Herald of Agony Occultist Build Guide Frostbolt/Glacial Cascade Totems Hierophant Build Guide Uber Labyrinth Farmer Juggernaut Build Guide Rain of Arrows Deadeye Build Guide Tornado Shot Deadeye Build Guide The Baron Zombies/Skeletons Necromancer Build Guide Toxic Rain Pathfinder Build Blade Flurry Gladiator Build Guide Spectral Throw Raider Build Guide Cyclone Slayer Build Guide We also have a beginner guide for fresh exiles.
      With all that said, we're hoping to see you on that new website and are looking forward to your comments!
      Please welcome our newest website on Path of Exile!
