World of Warcraft Celebrating its 12th Anniversary with a New Corgi Pup and More

wow-corgi-pup-320

World of Warcraft is 12 years old, and Blizzard is celebrating with an anniversary event that includes a Corgi Pup.

It's been 12 years since World of Warcraft launched. That kind of longevity from a MMO is impressive, and Blizzard is looking to celebrate the milestone with a brand-new in-game event. It's simple to participate. All you have to do its log in.

Once you're in-game, just head to the nearest mailbox, where you should find a special "Anniversary Gift Package" waiting for you. That package will contain 200 Timewarped Badges, a special item to increase experience and reputation gain from kills by 12% for an hour, and a letter that will start a quest to visit either Orgrimmar or Stormwind.

In your capital city, you'll find daily quests that will let you acquire more Timewarped Badges simply by answering WoW trivia questions. Badges can be traded for plenty of anniversary rewards, including the newest pet in the game, the Corgi Pup.

You need to log in before November 30 to claim this reward, so you've got about nine days to get it done.

Coming up with interesting and new rewards is hard, right Blizzard?

This feels like the bare minimum of caring on their part.

They could have done so much more like for example they should have done the anniversary of the Black Temple raid and made us raid there again just like they did with Molten Core for Vanilla.

It's not as nice as the molten corgi they gave away for the 10th anniversary.

At least make it an ice corgi or something for contrast. We can have a corgi of varying element every other year.

I'm not complaining too much because I wasn't around for the 10th and this is one of precious few corgi available to me[1], but an ice corgi would have been awesome.

20th will be BWL
30th will be AQ20 AND AQ40 IN ONE RAID because whynot
40th will be Firelands and be claimed as MC remake

To be fair, a lot of people requested the Corgi. You get an amount of time-warped badges (currency) which is just enough to buy it, or you can buy other stuff if you want (work towards a couple of nice mounts), so it's an okay gift, especially if you have several characters (and you only want 1 corgi).

As for Legion, it's been somewhat of a disappointment. Personally, I think it's the worst expansion of them all so far, but maybe it's because they've stuck to the recipe of pruning and simplifying the game. It's gotten out of hand to be honest and despite the fact that they finally seperated PvP from PvE, they still make changes to classes that affect both, because of one.

Blizzard has been given a lot of leeway from fans and there's still a huge and rabid following that'll excuse any error they make, but the fact is that they've lost sight of what a game is and they keep fucking up specs and classes for no good reason. Half my guild has quit already and the vast amount of members have been playing since vanilla or TBC.

Anyway, I'm letting my sub run out early this time, I'm not having fun at all this expansion.
