Just a collection of photos from the folks on the floor!
WoW has always been about change. Burning Crusade came around, and we got to fly for the first time. Wrath came out, and we were allowed a glimpse into the world of the awesome Death Knight and grew quite intimately aware of just how powerful Arthas was. Cataclysm came, and the world was ripped apart. Cataclysm also brought some heavy changes to the talent system. While the talent system has always been in limbo - some patches would bring game-breaking abilities to some classes, while destroying another class's ability to play - it has been pretty standard: A couple dozen points put into skills/abilities that power your character. Indeed, without talents, characters would be very underpowered.
For a limited time (unannounced time frame, as of posting) Blizzard is offering what they call an "Annual Pass" plan, which requires one to commit to a 12-month subscription to World of Warcraft. Sounds pretty useless, but then you look and see what the rewards are:
I don't know about many others, but free Diablo 3 is more than good enough to warrant opting into this plan - especially if you're already a paying customer of World of Warcraft.
The only caveat is that you have to have had a World of Warcraft account on or before October 18, 2011, have a valid credit card and be 18 years or older. Still, I imagine many have dabbled in WoW at least a little, so having an account before now shouldn't be too hard for many people.
I know I"m debating heavily on re-opening my WoW account. What about you?
EDIT: After logging into my B.net account, I have confirmed that if you have *ever* had a World of Warcraft account, even if it is not currently being paid for, you can still opt into the plan.
