World of Warcraft has stood the test of time.

The biggest feature of the anniversary event is no doubt the new raids, dubbed as “Memories of Azeroth”, three custom versions of vintage raids will allow players to once again take on some of the most iconic bosses of previous expansions.

These raids will each feature three bosses from Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, and Cataclysm with the likes of Kael’thas, Illidan, and the Lich King himself making a short return.

How to play the Memories of Azeroth World of Warcraft raids

If you want to attempt to take on the Memories of Azeroth raids then all you need to do is log into the game when the event is live, open the Raid Finder, and queue up for whichever raid you choose.

However, you will need to have an item level of at least 380, as this will be no easy task. These enemies were all some of the most powerful characters in the game after all.

Players will receive a new WoW pet just for logging into the game.

Players that are able to defeat all three bosses will be rewarded with a brand new flying mount, a black dragon inspired by Cataclysm’s final boss, Deathwing.

Also, everyone that logs in during the celebrations will receive a care package in the mail, which includes a tiny black dragon pet in the theme of Nefarian, increased experience and reputation, fireworks, and more.

To top it all off, players will also be able to battle it out in a vintage version of the Alterac Valley battleground, with long-gone mechanics such as summoning reinforcements and bosses making a return.

Completing the Alterac Valley of Olde achievement in-game will grant yet another reward, a Stormpike Battle Ram for Alliance and a Frostwolf Snarler for the Horde.

The event will last for two months and is expected to end at the beginning of January 2020 depending on your regions reset day, so you have plenty of time to enjoy the celebrations and grab all of the rewards.
