The launch of WoW: Shadowlands on November 24

can already be felt in World of Warcraft. Sure, the pre-patch has been online for a little while, but that's not the only reason. Now those responsible at Blizzard have also brought forward the celebrations for the 16th anniversary of WoW and already started on November 01. The in-game fun should run until November 22, so until just before the launch of the new expansion.

In an official post on the website, Blizzard reveals what you can expect during the anniversary in Azeroth:

Log in from now until November 22 to unlock the WoW 16th Birthday achievement, and then stop by your mailbox to pick up your anniversary gift pack.

The pack includes 200 time-warped badges, a holiday pack that grants you 16 percent more experience and reputation during the festivities, and a "Letter from the Time Walkers." This will allow you to start a new quest that will take you to either Orgrimmar or Stormwind.

The quest givers Historian Llore and Historian Ju'pa also have two daily quests in the Caverns of Time that will allow you to earn additional time-warped badges. You can either answer questions about World of Warcraft (buy now 14,99 € ) or defeat some well-known enemies. Collectors also have the opportunity to get classic loot from these enemies.

Classic bosses celebrate with

Sixteen years have passed since the gates to Azeroth were opened and heroes of the Horde and Alliance set out on adventure. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're bringing some familiar enemies back to Azeroth - with slightly revised abilities. Players level 30 and above can take on Lord Kazzak (Ravaged Lands (32/49)), Azuregos (Azshara (49/84)), and one of the four Dragons of Nightmare (Smariss - Duskwood (46/38) / Lethon - Hinterlands (63/27) / Taerar - Ashenvale (93/40) / Ysondre - Feralas (51/10)) daily for loot and 50 Time-Distorted badges.

Return to Alterac Valley

In Korrak's Revenge, a battlefield inspired by the early days of Alterac Valley, you can overpower enemies, collapse their strongholds, and collect tokens that can be used to summon powerful reinforcements.

Players who participate in Korrak's Revenge and complete the Alter-ractal achievement will be able to earn two mounts: the Stormpike Battle Ram (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Growler (Horde).
