If you’ve been subscribed to World of Warcraft for the ten years (without breaks), you could be in for a treat. Blizzard have sent a mysterious package to their most loyal players, and today we can finally see what it contains.
A giant metal statue of an Orc riding an equally giant wolf.
World of Warcraft player “Smitti” posted the picture above on the games forums for all to see. When asked how long he’d been subscribed to WoW, Smitti proved his worth. “[I’ve] not had a lapse since Dec 04.” Smitti said. “Oh and a few more specifics. It’s a metal statue with a metal base. Weighs a few pounds. Stands about 8 inches tall.”
The base of the statue holds some significance, as that’s where you’ll find this personal message from the Blizzard team:
“The Orc statue is a constant presence in our life at Blizzard Entertainment. It’s where we meet to talk, to eat, to celebrate. As we celebrate ten years of World of Warcraft, we present this token of our appreciation to you, stalwart adventurer. Thank you for being a constant presence in our lives as we adventure together.”
Recognise the statue from somewhere? Well you should – a life size version of it guards the gates to Blizzard’s HQ.
Are you a lucky owner of one of these lovely gifts?
