Whether your opinions on World of Warcraft are positive or negative, you can’t deny that reaching 11 years of operation is quite the accomplishment. The game is celebrating the achievement with presents for the players, as usual with an 11% buff to experience from quests and enemies for all players, along with a variety of toys like an inflatable version of Thunderfury and a picture-perfect Edwin Van Cleef costume. It’s worth noting that all of these toys have limited charges rather than being endlessly usable; don’t run them out.
A recent interview with executive producer J. Allen Brack also reveals some of the plans of the studio as the game moves past its anniversary. Brack states that the team is focused on doing things for the game without focusing on subscriber numbers and not reporting on them is important to avoid the community fixating upon that as a statement of health. He also states that the level 100 boost token in Legion will only be consumed when the boost experience is complete once the expansion launches, allowing players to try various classes before settling on one for the boost.
