World of Warcraft hosts 16th anniversary party, spotlights Shadowlands’ Ardenweald


It’s going to be a busy month for World of Warcraft, and it all starts with the 16th anniversary celebrations of the long-running MMORPG. The event, which started yesterday and runs through November 22nd, centers around a huge party in the Caverns of Time with plenty of goodies to attain.

Every player who logs in will get a celebration bundle that contains an invitation to said party, a 16% experience and reputation booster, 200 timewalking badges, and a reusable firework. The badges, by the way, can be used to purchase the new anniversary cloak from the vendor. One of my guildies noted that it has “different animation and swooshy effects” than your usual back-blanket.

You’ll also want to take on certain world bosses during this event for “classic loot” and participate in the Alterac Valley of Olde to get a new mount.

The studio also posted a one-minute tour of Shadowlands’ Ardenweald, the Druidic zone to end all Druidic zones. Check it out and get your full daily ration of neon:

Im wondering when we will see this mount that they had the poll for a couple months back. Kinda figured it would show up with the anniversary event, but nope.

It’s quite a thing when neon is the hallmark of Druidism and the natural world. :D

Its stirred up the lore quite a bit and upset many hardcore druid lore fans.

Most believed that when druids died, they went to the emerald dream. Introducing this new realm in SL, where even “gods” such as Ursoc go, bypassing the emerald dream, has thrown a big wrench into what so many were comfortable understanding.

It will be interesting to see where they take it… regardless of if its interesting and well laid out, or a complete disaster.

Sylvanas made a deal with the Jailer and everyone goes to the Shadowlands now that the veil has been shattered. At least that’s my take on the transpiring lore.


I think her deal with the jailer was to make it so everybody bypasses most parts of SL and start going straight to the Maw (as in the Jailer’s home). Isn’t this why the Vanthyr are bitching about running low on anima? I am probably wrong :-O .
