World of Warcraft Anniversary: My Epic 10 Year Journey Summarized in 50 Screenshots

There is nothing quite like World of Warcraft.

This month World of Warcraft celebrates its 10-year anniversary. Since its inception it has become more than just a game for people like myself who have visited Azeroth to see what all the fuss is about. Its engrossing world is where I have created lasting memories, and forged great friendships. It’s an alternate reality where throwing fireballs is possible, death is only temporary, and learning strategies to defeat foul beasts for weapons and equipment is just another day.

I’ve been fortunate enough to remember to take screenshots throughout my 10-year journey. Although my first month playing is confined to the limits of my memory, I’ve captured many of the moments that have made World of Warcraft undoubtedly one of my favorite games of all-time. With that, I can share some of these brief moments in virtual space and time with you.

In the gallery below you’ll see 50 screenshots of my journey from 2004 until 2014. Previously, these have only been seen by myself and a couple friends. Now, I will share my journey with you.
