It’s been fifteen years already since World of Warcraft was released and it changed the MMORPG genre, managing to become one of the most popular videogames in the world. Millions of players have joined Horde and alliance to live adventures on Azeroth, taking part in epic fights through seven different expansions: The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, and finally Battle for Azeroth. After the reveal of Shadowlands, the upcoming eight expansion for World of Warcraft which was announced last weekend during the Blizzcon, Blizzard Entertainment has proceeded with the beginning of the celebrations for the 15th anniversary of the game.

Just by logging into World of Warcraft during the anniversary event with any character, you will receive an in-game mail with a few rewards, including the Lil’ Nefarian battle pet, an item that will boost your experience and faction gains while the event lasts and a few other things.

Also, all World of Warcraft players can take part in three new anniversary raids called Memories of Azeroth, where the dragon Chromie will guide them through some of the most memorable fights in the history of Azeroth. If you want to take part in the event you will have to fight to the Caverns of Time to fight against Lady Vashj, Kael’Thas, Archimonde, Heigan, Anub’Arak, The Lich King, Cho’Gall, Nefarian, and Ragnaros in three epic raids. If you manage to defeat them all, you will get a special achievement and the exclusive mount Obsidian Worldbreaker, inspired by Deathwing. The only requirement to participate in those raids is to have an item level of 380 or more and you can join them by talking to Chromie, who will put you in a queue on the looking for group tool.

If you are not so much into PVE and prefer some PVP action, you can join a special version of the Alterac Valley battleground that will be available during the celebration. Just by participating you will get an achievement that unlocks the Frostwolf Snarler and Stormpike Battle Ram mounts.

Alog with all those events, there will also be a special vendor available which sells items with fun effects during the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft.
