World of Warcraft 15th Anniversary Collectors Edition Announced

In addition to the WoW Classic launch date being announced there was also a news item about a World of Warcraft 15th Anniversary Collector’s Edition.

WoW at Fifteen

While the box won’t be available until early October, you can pre-order it today for $100, because of course you can.  And when I say box, I mean box, as this appears to be focused on physical items.

Things you get

The list of items for the CE are:

  • Ragnaros Statue
    Behold Ragnaros, he who is ancient when this world was young! Bow, mortals, before this 10+ inch immortalization of the Firelord himself.
  • Onyxia Pin
    Add to your pin collection and adorn your home with the head of Onyxia, Broodmother of the Black Dragonflight.
  • Map of Azeroth Mouse Pad
    Gaze upon the realms your character has explored these past 15 years while you prepare for the next adventure.
  • Fine Art Prints
    Reach into Azeroth’s vivid past with eight frameable fine art prints.
  • 30 Days of Game Time
    Extend your stay in Azeroth with 30 days of game time to aid you on your next adventure.
  • Alabaster Mounts
    Take to the skies with these majestic alabaster mounts—living stone tributes to a pair of familiar flying creatures.

    • Alabaster Stormtalon for Alliance characters
    • Alabaster Thunderwing for Horde characters

While I am fond of collector’s editions for WoW (I regret not getting the original one) I am not really big on physical items, save for maybe the sound track.  At my age I am already carrying too much baggage when it comes to little nick nacks and dust collectors, so a ten inch tall Ragnaros doesn’t thrill me.

The mounts… maybe.  I’d prefer battle pets, but mounts are still good.

The Anniversary Mounts

But Blizz has me covered.  If I want just the mounts, they will be available on their own in the Blizzard shop in August.  If you buy them there then buy the CE you will get a $25 credit in the Blizzard store to cover the overlap.

And if you don’t want to spend any money on this, Blizz has plans for in-game anniversary gifts for the 15th anniversary for all subscribers.  We’ll get both a mount and a pet.  Blizz had put up a video of them.

So, in addition to WoW Classic, we have some things to look forward to later this year.

    No worries on the statue, it’s already sold out. How a pre-order sells out on the first day is beyond me. All they have said on the forums is look to your local video game store for pre-order sales. I don’t have any near me anymore, the one I did have closed a few years ago. Someone in marketing really needs to think things through.
