This November marks the 10-year anniversary of World of Warcraft, and we’re cooking up a few in-game plans to commemorate the occasion. Here’s a quick preview of what’s in store:
If you engaged in PvP early on in WoW, you might have fond memories of—and perhaps a few scars from—the endless tug-of-war between Horde and Alliance players at Tarren Mill and Southshore. To recapture that feeling, we’ll be opening a Team Deathmatch–style Battleground based on that timeless struggle. However, unlike the old days of Tarren Mill vs. Southshore, there will be a clearly defined victor, so you’ll need to work as a team or face crushing defeat.
Molten Core provided many WoW players with their first taste of WoW raiding. For the anniversary celebration, max-level players will be able to participate in a special 40-player Raid Finder version to relive the experience of hunting down Ragnaros and his minions within his fiery lair. Downing the Firelord will earn you an Achievement and a special Core Hound mount reward (fireproof leg armor not included).
Anyone who logs in during the 10-year anniversary event will also be able to claim a feisty, fiery new pet: the Molten Corgi! Just think of the corgi-parade potential when you and your friends summon these wee waddling balls of fire for a walk.
These events and rewards will only be available for a limited time, so make sure to check back with us later for more information on when you can expect to see all of these events and goodies in-game. ‘Til then, we’re looking forward to celebrating 10 epic years with you!
Blizzard has deleted this post from their website for some reason...
Why did they delete it?
\\o/ Ohohohohohohoho, guess they spilled their load pre-maturely!
well could be a chance because they somewhat saying with this post that the addon will be released a good time before the birthday celebrations begin :) :)
No idea, it's all over Twitter and the Blizzard devs are talking about it. And...it's back.
i dont get it.. why would they post it now if the 10th anniversary is in november?
Best news I've heard all day!
They probably want to build hype and would rather officially post it than having it datamined and possibly misinterpreted. Personally, I think it is pretty cool.
Molten core yay!
The good ol days!
Even though I never experience the "bloody" battles of the two towns at each other. I do like PvP and the also the lore behind this. Also a nice month and pet. Im so there. :)Southshore shall RETURN!
40 man LFR will be... Interesting.
"For the anniversary celebration, max-level players will be able to participate in a special 40-player Raid Finder version"What does max level equal? If the launch is before that and it's level 100 then players would need at least a month to level up. That kind of puts the time-frame for release in October which sounds fairly rushed at this point. Interesting. It could also be Level 90 as we say it could be after Blizzcon and before the anniversary so people could claim this achievement and hype Vanilla players into returning for Warlords of Draenor.
COREHOUND MOUNT.MUST HAVE.CORGI ADORABLEMUST HAVE.RAID FINDER?@#$%. MUST DEAL.Btw. I recommend everyone download DBM Vanilla for MC if they haven't for doing LFR.. if it is the same, that is.
This is awesome, 40 man LFR (the fails will be hilarious) corehound mount, free cool pet, and a deathmatch bg? Hell yeah!
What about the battle for crossroads, when are we getting that back :POT: Fingers crossed I am home for this as it looks spectacular
Yah, release WoD AFTER aniversary so everyone doesnt have to ding 100 to participate.
But what about Hogger? Is that still a thing?
