World of Warcraft Extends Its 10-Year Anniversary Event by a Week

Blizzard has stated that the World of Warcraft 10-year anniversary event will be extended by another week. That’s effective as of today and will run through until January 13 at 1:00 p.m. EST.

A thing to note is that the announcement so far has been made for the North American servers only and I haven’t come across any clarification that it isn’t so. Players on other realms would be disappointed in this. However, if you’ve already gotten what everything out of this event then there’s little to fret over. The extension does not include anything new and the contents remain the same.

The game’s 10-year anniversary brought along a special version of the Molten Core raid that required players to be level 100. The item level requirement was 615 and the entire instance was scaled up to meet the new level requirements. Defeating Ragnaros gave players the Core Hound Chain mount, a new achievement and a fiery helm with an item level of 640.

In addition to that there was also a Tarren Mill vs Southshore special battleground which featured a 40v40 setup for players between level 90 and 100. Taking part entitled everyone to a new title.

World of Warcraft recently received its new expansion called Warlords of Draenor. This is the first time in the past couple of expansions that the game has seen to a massive rise in its subscribers. The numbers had previously been on a downfall following the release of Cataclysm.
