Even outside of World of Warcraft, Blizzard’s been busy busy busy this week.
First, take a peek at Hearthstone: The MMOTCG opened the Tombs of Terror last night, with its free first chapter for all comers willing to dive back into Uldum. The rest of the chapters will be “launching consecutively over the next two weeks” and buyable either piecemeal or in a $14.99 bundle for a steep discount.
Then in Overwatch, Blizzard is threatening everyone with the dangerous carpet caltrops known as LEGO in Bastion’s Brick Challenge, a new limited-time event. “From September 17 through 30, players will be able to obtain 5 sprays, 6 player icons, and the legendary Brick Bastion skin for a total of 12 new rewards,” Blizzard says.
Finally, if you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of weird World of Warcraft history in the form of a WoW server blade for the low, low cost of $300, well, you can’t. I mean, you could, but they’re already out of stock because apparently kind of a lot of people really wanted these things and have money to burn. The charity cause benefits Pencils of Promise, “a for-purpose organization founded in 2008 with the goal of increasing access to quality education for children around the world” – “to date, PoP has built more than 500 schools and currently serves more than 100,000 students throughout Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.”
Own a Piece of World of Warcraft History and Help Support Pencils of Promise.
We’ve preserved a number of retired HP server blades that once hosted WoW realms, and you can purchase one with proceeds supporting Pencils of Promise.https://t.co/yUrs1z0krX pic.twitter.com/alr6vHJECF
