Blizzard began celebrating World of Warcraft’s 18th anniversary early this year. The anniversary celebrations were moved ahead in time by a few days to coincide with the release of Dragonflight at the end of the month.

On November 23, 2004, World of Warcraft was released with the intention of following in the footsteps of the critically acclaimed strategy game Warcraft 3. The game had established the standard for massively multiplayer online games (MMORPGs) for over two decades, with its roster of eight playable races, nine classes, and two opposing factions. There have been eight expansions since then, each adding new material and features, with Dragonflight being the ninth. Dragonflight ushers in World of Warcraft’s Third Era, bringing a fresh wave of narrative and gameplay to the game despite the game’s ups and downs throughout the years, including the various issues surrounding Blizzard in recent years.

Since the pre-expansion patch went online, the game has changed significantly. The World of Warcraft anniversary celebration was moved forward from its traditional time in late November to earlier in the year. The event began up on November 6 and will wrap up on November 27, a day before Dragonflight is set to take flight. While the event is active, players may Timewalk throughout Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms to face Classic period monsters like Azuregos, the Dragons of Nightmare, and Doom Lord Kazzak in the hopes of defeating them and earning valuable gear and Timewalking Badges. These badges may be exchanged for various amusing cosmetic goods from Timewalking sellers across the globe and in the Caverns of Time.

Each year on the anniversary, gamers will get a special accomplishment and anniversary package in their in-game inbox. In the box is a boost equal to 18% of the event’s total experience and reputation points. Every year on the anniversary, the buff’s power increases by one, and this year’s party is no exception. With this increase, those who aren’t yet level 60 will be able to do it in less time, allowing them to get up to speed before Dragonflight lifts the level cap to 70. However, it does not coincide with the release of the expansion or the Dragonflight levelling experience. At this time, both Dragonflight and the pre-expansion patch will provide enough opportunities for players with several characters to get up to speed.

Both groups will experience an increase in membership during the anniversary. On November 15, the second part of the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch will go live, allowing players to make their own Dracthyr Evoker and learn about their origins among the Alliance and the Horde. A player’s reputation may be improved by the amount of experience gained from the anniversary until November 27.
