World of Warcraft celebrated its 10 year anniversary last fall. Albeit several months late, Blizzard is rewarding its most loyal fans with a limited edition gift to commemorate the momentous occasion.
Those who created a World of Warcraft account within 60 days of the game’s release in America or Europe way back in 2004 and have maintained their subscription over the past decade may want to keep an eye on the e-mail address listed on their Battle.net account.
Eligible gamers should have already received correspondence from Blizzard and ultimately, a physical gift to the address on file. If you haven’t yet received an e-mail, you probably aren’t getting the gift.
So, what is 10 years worth of World of Warcraft loyalty good for? A miniature recreation of the Orc statue found in the courtyard of Blizzard Entertainment’s campus in Irvine, California.
A message on the bottom of the gift says the Orc statue is a constant presence in the life of those that work at Blizzard. It’s where they meet to talk, eat and celebrate. As Blizzard celebrates 10 years of World of Warcraft, they present the statue as their token of appreciation.
It’s certainly a pretty slick gift that’ll be treasured by many diehard World of Warcraft fans. For others, it’s an opportunity to make a quick buck as several statues have already found their way to eBay. As of writing, the miniature Orc statue is fetching anywhere between $300 to $800.
