A World of Warcraft veteran offers a unique way to celebrate the MMORPG timeline with murals highlighting certain expansions.
Activision Blizzard just revealed the next World of Warcraft extension known as Dragonflightbut each expansion has amassed its own fanbase over the years, which has inspired Classic WoW. A long moment World of Warcraft fan decided to do something creative with their old expansion boxes to celebrate the ever-evolving MMORPG.
Since Dragonflight was confirmed by Activision Blizzard last week, many members of the World of Warcraft community expressed their excitement for the upcoming changes in a number of ways. Reddit user Thatnerdyguy92 recently shared a themed wall art image that showcases each expansion, starting with the original. World of Warcraft the box art leading up to the expansion that changed several aspects of the original world, Cataclysm. Thatnerdyguy92’s display shows Blizzard’s early progress in getting where Dragonflight goes when it finally comes out.
The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysmand Classic are all depicted in wall art by Thatnerdyguy92 which combines the original boxes with their matching disc in a fitted black frame. In the case of the original world of warcraftt box, the Classic the wall art features the Orc disc out of the four included with the PC game. Each expansion’s box art is centered in the frame, while the discs are featured on the bottom left side of it, leaving the majority of the box art unobstructed.
World of Warcraft was originally released in 2004 and the first version received numerous content updates and fixes leading up to the launch of its first expansion, The Burning Crusade. Wrath of the Lich King developed the original concepts introduced with the first two versions of World of Warcraft when it was released in 2008, while Cataclysm changed a lot of Azeroth in 2010. That’s the conclusion of the expansions featured in Thatnerdyguy92’s wall art, but Blizzard later released Mists of Pandaria, Warlords of Draenor, Legion, Battle for Azerothand, more recently, Shadowland.
Although Thatnerdguy92 hasn’t explained why their framed extensions stop at Cataclysmmaybe it has to do with players withdrawing World of Warcraft experimented with expansion. Many players have also turned to buying World of Warcraft digital extensions because beyond getting collector’s editions, there’s little benefit to having a physical disc with most PCs built in recent years not even including disc drives. Many World of Warcraft fans have been celebrating Thatnerdguy92’s idea of using their “dusty boxes” in creative art rather than keeping them on the shelf ever since they shared the idea with the community.
