Oscar Winner Also A 'World of Warcraft' Guild Leader


Posted February 24, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

A Trio of OscarsI'm told that the Academy Awards took place this weekend and many millionaires gave other millionaires pats on the back and golden statues.  What you might not have known, however, was that one Oscar winner is a World of Warcraft guild leader.

Steve Preeg took home a Best Achievement in Visual Effects Oscar for his work on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Previously, he's worked on effects for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I, Robot. In World of Warcraft, Preeg plays a Combat Rogue with 450 Enchanting and Inscription. He runs a progression guild has conquered all of of WoW's raid bosses except Sartharion.

Gratz on the epic lewt, Preeg. By the way, the +15 Oscar of Awesomeness is Bind on Pickup, so you won't be able to get it at the auction house. You have to go out and wait for one to drop yourself.

Preeg also was on a panel at DICE, which you can read about here.
