Activision Blizzard set to celebrate World of Warcraft's 10-year anniversary

A series of special events (and dog giveaways) await avid players


Despite losing a few players over the past few months, Activision Bizzard is set to celebrate World of Warcraft's 10th anniversary in style. Yes, it's ten years old...let that sink in with all the hours you've logged into it.

Along with the forthcoming events that are scheduled for Blizzcon 2014 (taking place in Anaheim on November 7th and 8th), the publisher will also host a series of activities for in-game players during the same month, including a recreation of a Team Deathmatch-style Battleground based upon Tarren Mill vs. Southshore, as well as a special 40-player Raid Finder that will let players relive the experience of hunting down Ragnarow and his minions within a fire-covered lair. Beat him and you'll be able to earn a special Achievement and unlock a special Core Hound mount.

But perhaps the most adorable of the rewards is the ability to claim a new fire-based pet: the Molten Corgi. We're not sure what his attack capabilities are, but he's so cute that most of you probably won't even care.

Get the full scoop on when the events will unfold here. But be sure to take part quickly, because they're only happening for a limited time.

      How I miss the days of hunting down "Ragnarow"

      So, I guess that's what the Southshore vs Tarren Mill battleground was. I hope the objective is to be the first team to kill the flight master.

      I always wanted a Core Hound mount. I was excited when I saw it was being added to the game files but I guess it'll lose some of the cool factor because everyone will get it and be riding around on it. At least it's not going to be another store mount.

      Of course the pet is time limited but I assume the BG is going to stay? I wonder about the 40 man raid

        Oh it sounds like the mount is guaranteed so I assume the whole instance is limited
