On Wednesday, November 23, World of Warcraft will enter its seventh year online. That’s seven years of leveling, raids, random dancing, farming, and marriages. So I hope you didn’t have plans this Thanksgiving WoW addicts, cause you’re sure to spend more than just Thanksgiving day enjoying WoW instead of say, eating turkey, enjoying the company of family, or setting up Christmas decorations. Of course, no one blames you for wanting to skip out on that last one.
Starting November 20th until December 3rd, a feat of strength will be added to your list of achievements, as well as a Celebration Package item. This package includes fireworks, a tabard for your character, and a 7% bonus to experience and reputation during the celebration period.
With my family being Asian, we don’t particularly do anything on Thanksgiving, so WoW fans in a setting like mine won’t have to worry about missing a whole lot. Now that I think about it, I guess that’s why WoW is just as popular in places like China and Korea than anywhere else.
