Blizzard sent a in game mail to everyone regarding the 8th anniversary.
It contained a item you can click that gives you a 8% increase in leveling xp , it last for a week or so cant remember.
But also was a nice letter attached , the letter was the same exact letter we recieved last year, it was reffering to Deathwing.
Blizzard is lazy.
They couldnt include a pet as a gift because they would rather sell it in the item shop.

Way to turn a happy event into something negative and selfish. I have a feeling that you are the type of person where, even if you DID receive a pet, you would complain that they didn't send you a mount.
I was playing EVE actually. Thats not a smak towards WoW at all.
But I did have the elitist attiude of most EVE players at the time (and most still have), thats its a cartoon game for kids.
I found out about three years later that it was a damn fun game to play. I count it among some of my best MMO memories, with people I still have contact with, though somewhat irregularly.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
I was already ready for when it launched as i played since the beta.
I remember thinking how massive this world was, that feeling of seeing the first enemy alliance character.
Getting my full shadowcraft set and showing off in town, later nightslayer
Annoying the alliance while they tried to kill Azuregos
Fighting over Tarren Mill and 12 hour long AV battles.
Then during the games expansions the scale seemed to shrink for me, and i found myself hanging out in cities waiting for dailies/instances or raids to do
I loved the hell out of the game, now like many i long for a similar experience with todays mmo's
Making so much noise you dont know when to listen.
This could be said as true, but in a more positive fashion. They actually decided to release their latest pet as a charity drive for the people involved with Hurricane Sandy; 100% of the proceeds will go to help those people.
I'd rather have the option to pay $10 and help people than be given it in the anniversary.
When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

YOU ARE NOT PREPARED!!!
There are wannabes MMOS which dream to beat WOW and then there is WOW.
WOW isa genre of its own. Success well deserverd.
In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.I don't play games, I inhabit virtual worlds™ Still currently "subscribed" to EVE, and only EVE!!!"This is the most intelligent, well qualified and articulate response to a post I have ever seen on these forums. It's a shame most people here won't have the attention span to read past the second line." - Anon
Originally posted by Kyleran Ah yes, I remember having fun in WOW 8 years ago, when my son (who was 12 at the time) and I first logged into Azeroth. Now he is 20 and so much has changed. Well except that almost every MMO since then has been practically the same damn game.
How bizarre, same experience for me. I got into MMO's a few years before WoW. WoW was one of the first MMO's I played together with my Son who also is now 20.
Since then he's gone on to beome a bit more hardcore than myself... playing GW, DF, Rift, LoL... others...
My son continued to play WoW including all the expansions but stopped after Catacombs. I stopped after I hit level 30 on vanilla WoW and started playing SWG, PS, WWIIOnline.

Grats Blizzard. So what are they going to do for the ten year anniversary?
