WoW's 5th Anniversary!

Wow, another year has gone by for WoW!

We wanted to thank you again for continuing to play World of Warcraft with us. In celebration of our 5th year online, we decided to bring back our first raid encounter, the black dragon Onyxia.

To help remember the event, you are now the proud owner of your very own Onyxian Whelping. We suggest you bring the little guy out whenever you can and say "Many whelps! Handle it!" Your friends won't mind. Honest.
