Celebrating 11 Years of WoW
The costume and Thunderfury were hotfixed to be Bind on Pickup, so no more abusing alts to get more!

    I love that this is how they are doing the Anniversary. These last six months have given me a lot of hope in Blizzard. It's like they are listening again. I miss this. We don't need a pet or mount every year, but something fun like these items feels good.

    My only qualm is that the Thunderfury item isn't a toy. Maybe they can adjust it in the future, like the Winter's Veil items.

    Would be weird if you used the Costume in Deadmines and then Vanessa would be "Daddy?"

    Shouldn't be charges. Having to log alts, send them to a bank-alt and store them, whenever I want 1 i have to go get it to the alt. This is sad.
    Why not make it toys? We already have some transformation toys, these 3 wouldn't hurt anyone.
    Same for the sword, it's a shame that after the event has passed they're gone if you didn't hoard them.

    No TF should not be a toy... same reason as you can't xmog it. However wouldn't mind if they made the other 3 things toy related :/.

    The Thunderfury can't be permanent because it would kinda decredit those who actually farmed it, and it would give more reward than farming it (Able to use it as technically transmog).

    The Edwin costume should of been a toy though instead.

    Those are some weak gifts, how about a pet or mount? I know you sell those for money, but anniversaries should be a big deal.

    Echoing the disappointment that the costumes aren't toys... what a waste.

    We got the mount and pet last year because it was 10!!!!! Years of WoW. Okay?
    Onyxian Whelpling for the 5th anniversary. That's it with all the extras besides the XP/Rep buff.

    You sound like a wife who gets beat up at home and thinks "He swore he'd never do it again. I swear, tonight he's going to change".

    Right? I like how optimism is being compared to a form of delusion.
