World of Warcraft celebrated its tenth anniversary last November, and now it looks like Blizzard is offering a little something to the people who have stuck around for the whole thing.
According to Smitti on the World of Warcraft forums, a user who has allegedly been subscribed the entire ten years, Blizzard decided they would show a little love to the World of Warcraft devotees that have played consistently since the game’s inception by sending them a gift.
The gift in question? Well, it’s actually pretty incredible. To thank players for giving up ten years of their lives, Blizzard has sent out some rather sturdy statues. These aren’t your typical statues made out of plastic that you get with your collector’s edition, either. These are statues made of metal, and they seem to weigh a few pounds and measure roughly eight inches tall.
That’s pretty cool, considering how much it would have cost you to keep your membership running for ten years. Wondering how much that comes to? Well, I did the math. If you subscribed monthly as I so often do when I’m prone to playing, with no lapse, you would have spent $1800.
That’s an $1800 statue! You can bet these are going to become quite the collector’s item, as I imagine few people have actually stayed subscribed for such a long period of time. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some of these on ebay in the coming months, and if the recent 20th anniversary PS4 is anything to go by, they’ll come at quite the price.
The statue, by the way, for those of you that aren’t aware, comes from right outside of Blizzard’s headquarters. It’s quite the honor to have one for yourself!Tweet
