WAR's Birthday Presents

Yesterday, Warhammer Online officially celebrated its fourth birthday. Although, I consider the Head Start to be the real day, that's not important.  What is important is presents!  What MMO birthday would be complete without some gifts for their players?

First, we are getting the standard gifts.  A 50% XP/Renown buff that goes on for the next 10 days.  Players will also be able to loot fireworks off of your fallen enemies.

For the 4 year veterans, there is a new item to be had:  A summon-able mailbox.  It will last for 3 minutes and cannot be placed near other mailboxes.  So no blocking the keep entrances ;)  I suspect this item will appear in the Entitlements window on a billing date, we'll see.  Each realm gets the mailbox from their capital city.

That's not all that was interesting about the birthday post.

As well, we’re putting in the framework for a new Live Event, not bound by seasonal constraints, and able to spring up more often and unexpectedly.  In fact, look for it to invade the servers soon after 1.4.7 premieres. 

I have no idea what this is all about.  It sounds like some semi-dynamic content, but who knows?  As long as it is something NEW, I'll be happy.  So bring on 1.4.7 so we can see what this is all about! ;)
