The subject of this article or section is part of WoW's Anniversary, a seasonal event that typically lasts two weeks. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

WoW's 16th Anniversary is the Feat of Strength achievement earned for logging in during the 16th anniversary of World of Warcraft from November 1, 2020 to November 22, 2020.

Everyone who logged in received a  [Anniversary Gift] in the mail, which contained:

WoW's 16th Anniversary!

Wow, yet another year has gone by for WoW!

We wanted to thank you for continuing to play World of Warcraft with us, so here's an Anniversary Gift to go with your adventures!

We hope that you will join us for a very special celebration in the Caverns of Time!

Celebrate 16 years of World of Warcraft with us! Log in between now and November 22 to earn the WoW's 16th Anniversary achievement, then check your mail for a special Anniversary Gift Package.

Inside the package you'll find 200 Timewarped Badges, a Celebration Package item to increase experience and reputation gains by 16% for 1 hour, and a "Letter from the Timewalkers,"[sic] which will start a new quest leading you to either Orgrimmar or Stormwind.

In addition, questgivers Historian Llore and Historian Ju'pa will have two daily quests that give players a chance to earn additional Timewarped Badges either by answering World of Warcraft trivia or by defeating some familiar foes. Collectors will also have a chance to pick up a few pieces of classic loot from defeating them.

Classic Bosses to Celebrate

It's been 16 years since gates opened into Azeroth and the heroes of the Horde and Alliance began their journey of discovery and adventure. To celebrate this momentous occasion, some familiar foes have returned to Azeroth—with some slightly updated abilities. Players level 30 and above can take on Lord Kazzak, Azuregos, and one of the four Dragons of Nightmare each day for some loot and 50 Timewarped Badges.

Return to Alterac Valley of Olde

Run down your enemies, raze their fortifications, and exchange the tokens you loot from their corpses to summon mighty reinforcements in Korrak's Revenge, a throwback Battleground inspired by the earliest days of Alterac Valley.

Players who participate in Korrak's Revenge and complete the Alterac Valley of Olde achievement can earn two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Ram (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).

New Vendor Item

In addition to all the many great items available for purchase, you'll be able to use your badges to acquire a new item this year. Join the Party in the Caverns of Time

Gather your friends and join the celebration in the Caverns of Time as you /dance, play some Khadgar-ball Soccer, and more.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who's been a part of this adventure so far. You represent the best aspects of the Horde and the Alliance, and you inspire and motivate us every day. We're looking forward to sharing many, many more adventures with you in the years to come.

New items


  • The event was originally scheduled to run from November 16, 2020 to November 30, 2020. The delay of the Shadowlands expansion caused the event's starting and ending dates to be changed, however.
  • This was the second time that the anniversary event was not active for the day of the anniversary itself (the first occurrence being WoW's 6th anniversary in 2010).
