Using your item will get the celebrations rolling by shooting off fireworks*, applying a (visual only) tabard to your character, and granting a 7% bonus to experience and reputation gains while active.

We look forward to another year of adventures ahead and many more to come!

The ad is set to air sometime during the first half… and when the star of this spot asks, “what’s your game?” you’d best have an answer ready.

    So we left the scraps for casuals like you. Enjoy.
    The hardcore raiders and top guilds disbanded after they removed attunements during and after ICC? As in Icecrown Citadel? Yeah. That's what happened. Right.

    I know you are not a successful Hardcore Raider.

    Let me know when a Top Guild raider refutes what I have stated.

    The 7% bonus is just for kills so this won't help you with DMF rep

    Edit: Here's an old blue post back from Nov 2010.

    I'd potentially concede that because we didn't clearly state "You won't get a pet" people still held out some hope, but I also don't feel we were in the wrong by including all of the correct information.

    We've never stated that every year we'd give a pet for the anniversary. I realize for the last two years that's been the case, and I do apologize that it created an expectation which wasn't met. I don't though believe we've somehow misled anyone as our announcement was clear and complete in the information it provided.
    And yet nothing you posted here proves that the only reason we got a pet before was a "mega anniversary." Only that Blizz will sometimes award pets and sometimes not, which is exactly what I was alluding to.
