Dec 9, 2009 The Rise and Fall of the Lich King: Screenshot Contest

The Scourge answers to but one king and he is a terrifying foe. Enter the heroes of the Horde and the Alliance to match steel with steel and face down this walking terror and his minions in the cold steppes of Northrend.

We're looking for your best screenshot of your own effort to put a damper on the machinations of the Lich King and the Scourge in Northrend; you could win a Rise of the Lich King Stein.

Now the time has come to break through the fortified gates of Icecrown Citadel and confront the Lich King in the frozen heart of his domain. Follow Jaina Proudmoore or Sylvanas Windrunner through the Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron, and Halls of Reflection in an attempt to subvert the Lich King's army in a new multi-wing 5-player dungeon. Join the Ashen Verdict as they charge through the citadel's main gate to take on the Scourge's most powerful leaders and fearsome monstrosities in a new 10- and 25-player raid.
