Blizzard Is Getting Rid of Longtime 'World of Warcraft' In-Shop Content

The World of Warcraft team has always offered some pretty sweet stuff that players could buy during their time in Azeroth including sweet mounts, battle pets, helms, and more. Now, Blizzard is preparing to say goodbye to some of the more iconic shop items - ones that have been with us since damn near the beginning.

As of right now, there are nine items in total on the chopping block. If you haven't scooped up any of these yet, do it - and do it fast:

Battle Pets

  • Lil'XT
  • Cenarian Hatchling
  • Moonkin Hatchling


  • The Ginning Reaver
  • Swift Windsteed
  • Armored Bloodwing

Vanity Helms

  • Crow of Eternal Winter
  • Jewel of the Firelord
  • Hood of Hungering Darkness

While some of these were hailed as the items to have "back in the day," they haven't seemed to age well as players focus on the newer items added to the store. For those looking to scoop these up before they are gone for good, Blizzard has lowered the price on each individual item drastically. Whether you're buying them for yourself or for your fellow raid buddy, it's a good chance to make that grab before they are no longer available.

As for how long these items will continue to be in the store for, January 6 is the final day to make that purchase.

What are your thoughts on the removal of the above items? Sad to see them go, or happy to see more space freed up? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below, or hit me up over on Twitter @DirtyEffinHippy!
