With Hadeen’s account reactivated I logged him in to see if the WoW 4th anniversary achievement & the Baby Blizzard Bear present was still being handed out and luckily they were.

Congrats Hadeen – it’s a Baby Blizzard Bear!

Yes, I’m a tiny bit late, but in fairness I’ve been busy trying to set up this site and forgot all about it until reading WoW blogs over breakfast this morning. I’d also already posted about this on my own site so no wonder it slipped my mind.

Anyway, yes World of Warcraft is 4 years old as of yesterday-ish. With the time zones and server times it kind of worked out as part of Sunday night and half of Monday, but let’s just leave it at yesterday for the sake of my brain not hurting.

As a birthday present to all of us who have made Blizzard stinking rich, upon logging in any time over the course of that day you will receive an achievement:

and a Baby Blizzard Bear which will immediately threaten to drown you in cuteness:

Surloch and my various alts logged in and got the presents, and I logged in Marlokh so he’s covered as well, but unfortunately Hadeen missed out due to unexpected account expirage. I’m not sure whether it’ll show up in the mail anyway, possibly without the achievement, but I guess disappointment will depend on how much Hadeen really wants an adorable little bear that pretty near everyone else has.

I should mention that the bear is Bind on Account which means that once you’ve done the usual clicking on the item to learn the spell (which I did for Marlokh btw), the item will still be in your bags. Do not destroy it! Send it to a bank alt or stick it in your bank bags as any current or future characters on that server will be able to use it to learn the spell. It’s just like a Never-ending Gobstopper that you can pass around to your imaginary friends I suppose. Just not as gross.
