This time I didn’t leave them behind somewhere, Blizzard took them.
For the WoW anniversary event Blizzard gave us a pair of Bronze Tinted Sunglasses to buy from the anniversary vendor. I bought them and put them on right away, replacing my engineer goggles look.
They have a sparkle animation. But now they’re gone. As soon as I logged in after the anniversary event ended I was back to the helm I had been wearing.
Of course, they weren’t really gone. They are still there in my list of transmogs. They just only work during the anniversary event.
I guess holiday restricted items were a thing already, and Blizz warned us they would be gone with the end of the event, but the sunglasses were so not tied to the anniversary in any meaningful way that I thought they might relent.
Ah well, I guess I’ll have to wait another year for that look again.
