Whelping Pets Given Out to Celebrate Fifth Anniversary - World of Warcraft -

Five years ago today, the 800lb gorilla also known as World of Warcraft made its debut on the MMOG scene. Today, Blizzard is celebrating this event by giving all players an Onyxia Whelping pet, as well as an e-mail thanking fans for the continued support.

Read the e-mail below:

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 Whelpling. We suggest you bring the little guy out whenever you can and say "Many whelps! Handle it!" Your friends won't mind. Honest.

The WoW dev team
