Probably just a 9% EXP/rep buff and a message about Deathwing again.

could someone explain this and the anniversary item?

i've had my account for a long time but i guess i unsub around the time they do anniv gifts

Blizzard has sent out items now and again around November for the nth anniversary of the game's launch. I think it was the 3rd or 4th year when they started doing it. I remember there being a baby polar bear as one of the items, and when they remade Onyxia for level 80 they sent out an Onyxian whelpling.

Lately it's been an item that'll last for a couple of weeks that gives an XP buff based on how long the game's been around. In Cataclysm there was a reference to "the return of a certain dragon" but when last year's anniversary rolled around, after the release of MoP, they never changed the text, so everyone was like, "wait, which dragon again? Ha ha ha!"

But yeah, probably no pet this year, just a thing that gives you 9% XP or whatever and an ugly purple tabard while it's active.

Just curious, how much you paying per month for SuperMario and Zelda these days?

And yes, I do still play.
If you have to use force...use Shining Force!

Does it come with a letter telling us to stop Deathwing again?

It's not a tabard, just a crappy item.

Blizzard doesn't even care about the game anymore. They can release 9 million pets, mounts, and tmog items on the store but don't give crap for the anniversary anymore.

Yeah, you'll be lucky if they remember to change the letter they send this year. Or else it's back to killing Deathwing.

9 years old is probably not that special.
10 year old, yes, that is probably something they will celebrate.
If someone post "I don't care", they actually care VERY much.
If they DON'T care, they WON'T bother posting.

The fact this 'game' been around for 9 years, and has still retained it's "popularity". ..shouldn't matter if it's not a milestone anniversary or not. Blizzard should be so priviliged in suckering......uh, i the best gaming experience any MMO game has to offer for a subscription.

Maybe they should shut it down "fix it" and re release the same crap like that game you play.
