After 15 years of World of Warcraft, you’d expect something of a blowout for the game’s anniversary… and that’s exactly what you’re getting with the new anniversary event offering extensive rewards. Players need only log in to get a pet and a celebration package, but they can also take on an old-school version of Alterac Valley to earn faction-appropriate mounts or take on classic raids to earn their very own Deathwing mounts. Because is there anything more appropriate in World of Warcraft than rewarding you by having a thing to ride on? No. There is not.
If you want to get everything from the event, you’ll need to both take on the old-school AV experience (which can also be used to level characters) and deal with nine of the most memorable raid bosses from the game’s first three expansions. Fortunately, the event will be running until January 7th, so you’ve got plenty of time… and since the anniversary package also increases experience and reputation gains by 15% during the entire period, you’ll have a notable advantage.
