Mox Gauntlet: Help us tip the (sky)scales for charity before War Eternal!

Team ArenaNet’s participation in the Mox Gauntlet for charity is ten days away!

Now that you know when War Eternal is coming, we thought we’d add a little Episode 6-related challenge to our fundraising for the charity. Right now, we have some fun giveaways planned for our fundraising milestones. The day of the event we’ll be doing a drawing for a Guild Wars 2 item:

  • $1000: Quaggan mug with box signed by the ArenaNet Gauntlet team
  • $2000: Heart of Thorns and Path of Fire vinyl soundtracks signed by the ArenaNet Gauntlet team
  • $3000: Five Guild Wars 2 mouse mats signed by the ArenaNet Gauntlet team
  • $4000: Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition signed by the ArenaNet Gauntlet team
  • $5000: Guild Wars Collector's Edition signed by the ArenaNet Gauntlet team

But we’ve talked amongst ourselves and decided to have a little fun over the next few days while we wait for War Eternal! As we reach donation milestones over the next five days, we’ll give you some hints on how to acquire your skyscale mount! Part of getting your new mount is searching the new map in Tyria for loose skyscale scales. For every $2,000 we raise for this year’s supported charity, we will share a screenshot of one of the scales in the new map to help you find it a little more quickly once War Eternal is live next Tuesday. (Up to six screenshots)

The charity that the Mox Gauntlet is supporting this year is El Centro de la Raza, and here is a breakdown of how your donations will be used:

  • 25 USD: Summer Learning: Reduces summer loss of learning for one low-income middle school student through college readiness, tutoring, and leadership development activities
  • 50 USD: Mentorship/Case Management: pays for one hour of time spent with at-risk youth who want to find their way on the path to academic and professional success
  • 100 USD: After School Program: Provides one low-income middle school student comprehensive academic support and prosocial activities, including: tutoring, technology training, cultural enrichment, and case management for students as well as monthly parent workshops
  • 150 USD: In-Home Family Education: empowers one child under the age of six to attain their developmental milestones through a series of 15 sessions containing in-home education and support
  • 200 USD: Classroom Based Cultural Enrichment: Improves the academic, social, and emotional development of one at-risk high school student through art, including civil rights history and hip hop poetry classes

We’re going to get you started with one screenshot just for fun. This is the first one in the series–it doesn’t count toward the total of six, it’s a freebie! Once we get to our first $2,000, we’ll share the second one in the series. At $4,000, we’ll share the third one, and so on. You can support Team ArenaNet with your donation here. Ready, set, go!

    On a scale from 1 to scale, that's off the scale.
