Blood Thirsty Team

Blood Thirsty Team Challenge Rules

We know you’ve wanted to play with your friends, now you can. Traditionally, the Blood Thirsty Challenge is a solo World of Warcraft challenge, however, we know a lot of you wanted to run with your
friends. While you won’t be able to list your character for the regular Blood Thirsty Challenge, you can add your character to a team you or your friend create, following the rest of the traditional
Blood Thirsty Challenge rules.

Have a question about the rules? Check out our Teams FAQ.

  1. Do Not Die! – the most important rule of the challenge. Once one character dies
    the entire team is moved to the Honoured Dead section.
  2. All characters on a new team must be between Levels 10 and 20.
    1. Teams are ‘locked in’ after Level 20. Changing personnel before Level 20, could potentially red-flag the team: ie. Warlock in the team, healthstone used but then warlock removed
      before Level 20. Since Warlock is no longer in the team, the healthstone use is no longer allowed.
    2. Due to the listing/level restrictions on the challenge, Death Knights and Demon Hunters are excluded.
    3. The challenge is complete once ALL team members reach Max Level.
  3. Minimal Quests Completed – Individuals on the team are allowed to complete only 4 quests before flagging the entire team.

    • Goblins, Worgen, and Pandaren are all allowed to complete their introductory quests. Please see the list allowed link below.
    • Some quests are allowed to open up the Mists of Pandaria and Legion expansions. Please see the list allowed link below.
    • Yellow flag is given for 5 to 9 quests completed.
    • Red flag for 10+ quests completed.
  4. No gear higher than White quality. Please be aware this is different from the SOLO Blood Thirsty challenge. Greens are not allowed!
    1. No enchantments on your gear.
    2. We no longer allow exceptions for Shirts & Tabards. Any green+ equip will flag you.
    3. NO COSMETIC EXCEPTIONS! We are NOT allowing
      any cosmetic gear exceptions.
  5. No Talents allowed.
    1. Spec changes are ALLOWED.
  6. No Primary Professions allowed.
    1. No Secondary Professions allowed.
  7. No Potions or Flasks used. We also check for Healthstones used if you do not have a Warlock on your team.
    1. EXCEPTION:: You are allowed to use healthstones only if you currently have a warlock on your team.
  8. Your team’s Killing Blow / Total Kills percentage must be 75% or higher.
    1. Individual characters must remain within 10% of the highest Total Kills value on the team.
    2. Honestly, kill tracking is not issue if you are grouped up together and leveling AS A TEAM. If you are following the rules, you won’t need to worry about this particular rule.
  9. No raids, arenas, or battlegrounds allowed.
    1. Dungeons are OK! (please see the FAQ)
  10. Joining a guild is OKAY, however, you cannot use Guild Repairs or the guild bank to assist your team in any way.
