We're Giving Away 500 World Of Warcraft: Legion Beta Keys!

The middle of the year is usually a good time to get into MMOs. But if you're not sure what to play, or you've been thinking about returning to the land of Azeroth for a bit, then there's World of Warcraft: Legion.

The full game isn't out until the end of August. But if you'd like to give the beta a go, we've got 500 keys to give away.

As a small reminder, here's some of the new bells and whistles that Legion is adding to Blizzard's long-running MMO:

New Hero Class: Demon Hunter—Unleash the demon within as an all-new melee hero class gifted with preternatural mobility—and the ability to metamorphose into hellish new forms.
New Feature: Artifact Weapons—Smite the Legion with class-specific weapons of lore. Unlock abilities and traits, and customize your weapon to suit your needs.
New Continent: The Broken Isles—Discover the fate of a lost night elf civilization, confront twisted fragments of the Emerald Nightmare, and hunt agents of the Legion in all-new zones. Forge your own path through the Broken Isles as you explore content that dynamically scales to your level.
Boost to Level 100—Come fully prepared to battle the Legion with a level-100 character boost, and fight alongside your friends in this epic new chapter of World of Warcraft—available immediately upon pre-purchase†.
New Feature: Class Hall—Gather with fellow members of your class and unite followers of your order—including iconic characters from Warcraft lore—to carry out missions at your command.
New PvP Honor System—Fight for fame, glory, and a range of new PvP-specific powers as you face the opposing faction in Arenas and Battlegrounds.

The main hook for many people will undoubtedly be the Demon Hunter hero class. People have been wanting to represent Illidan's kind for years, and while your progress and access won't carry over from the beta to release it'll be fun to see what Blizzard is doing with Demon Hunters.

    Close to 10 years worth of memories but the most vivid memory was more recently bringing together a great group of friends across Australia for warlords and being able to all meetup in Melbourne for one of the guildies birthday and all of us chipping in for a replica Frostmourne

      One of the funniest nights we've had, as with every other guild get together we have

      My funniest moment was when me and my friend were camping time lost proto drake and we saw a horde guy and we tried to kill him but we died because of our awful ilvl and he got the drake

    Our guild loves swapblasting each other to death (lava/acid ponds) between pulls on heroic/mythic runs.. managed a last second swapblast under iron reaver on one of our mages who was prolific in getting ppl killed - best part is noone saw it coming and few actually saw me do it.

    I think my favourite memory of world of warcraft would be 2vs2 arena with my mate from highschool the amount of intense matches that we came up against (we were fire mage and moonkin) we had a lot of fun times either one shotting teams or being one shotted ourselves - at least we got a lot of quick games in

    Best thing I can think of is needing to rez 90% of a raid group each week after the dreaded SSC Elevator boss, followed in Wrath by the horrific Frogger boss (let's not even mention the safety dance).

    It was still vanilla wow, I had a 60 on a PvE server already. Rerolled on Mannoroth PvP. Soon as I got to Stonetalon Mt, 1st PvP zone I went to. A Horde Warrior with Hand of Rag (1st I'd ever seen) came and one shot me. Great intro to WPvP lol.

    When i first started playing Wow i was stuck in ghostlands and had no way out, i found a guy who said he'd show me the way out if i added him, 5 years later we're still friends who play allot together. Ghostlands always being my favorite zone ever.

    Ill never forgot the time my mate and i were going for the achievement to win 10x 2's in arena in a row, his mum had come to pick him up and we around 5-10 mins into a resto druid arms warrior fight (which we knew was gonna be a long one) when we were 9/10. We managed to hold off her aggro for probably 20 mins and eventually won

    It was during the early Burning Crusade expansion - Was leveling with my friend while on school holidays on PvP Frostmourne. He was a prot warrior and I was a holy (No idea why we were both spec'ed like that - guessing we were planning to just do instances). Doing quests near the right side of Hellfire Peninsula. This lvl 70 alliance paladin comes ganking us but for some reason he was really low geared and must of reached 70 recently. I ended up healing my friend for like 10 mins + and running around kiting the pally and eventually killed him :D! Started /laughing at his corpse and went off on our jolly way only to get ganked by him and another 2 friends :(.

    As a noob I remember trying to walk from Stormwind to Ironforge and getting absolutely destroyed in Burning Steppes. This was before I knew there was a train.

    On my first character a warlock trying to do a quest to get my class clothing, I grinded for 5 hours in a depressing tower with a friend only to have said friend reveal that as a tailor he could make the clothing for me :(

    My most vivid memory is one of my first: Listening to the Lament of the Highborne after giving Lady Sylvanas the necklace gifted to her by her sister. Such a great lore moment for an old school Warcraft fan.

    That would have to be during a mount run with mates recently and getting Ashes of Al'Ar. I ride it anytime im with them in-game just to rub it in ;)

    I remember being convinced that I could jump off a cliff in the Badlands... They even offered to jump first, as long as I followed. They did, so I did... then toward the bottom they pulled a parachute... I died.

    When EA said Warhammer Age of Reckoning was a "WoW killer"

      I think it was a typo all along, they meant it was a WAoR killer.

    Me and my friend were flying on my 2 person mount. I kicked him off over the horde base in tanaan jungle and he instantly died. On this day the PVP plane was born.

    Was learning to play and was doing my first Dungeon. Learning the need/greed system - was needing everything and they explained it to me. Jump to last boss and drops a cloak I needed.
    Was kicked from party, everyone /spit on me. Wore it for the next 12 levels.

    When I was a young noob I tried to get to Stormwind. I looked For 6 hours until I found the road to stormwind. I did not know how to use a map. lol

    So many memories, but I think my first guild who were also my coworkers at a Bank. Giving tips and advice on playing MMOs, watching the admin officer teach the stockbroker accountant how gold farming works :P. Raid kills were celebrated more enthusiasticly than real life project milestones.

    When I first started playing, around the tail end of vanilla, I remember leveling my paladin (aooman) all the way to level 34 on DIAL UP!! I have no idea how I managed to do that with the crazy lag.

    Played all the way through vanilla. Tarren Mill PvP, killed Rag in Molten Core etc. Had an absolute blast.

    Then I walked through the Dark Portal when BC came out. Seeing Hellfire Peninsula for the first time = mind blown. Was so different and alien. My jaw dropped.

    During raid break, one of our tanks went to Stormshield and went AFK. What he didn't know is, one of our Mages secretly followed him and swapblasted him into the water. The tank returned to find himself swimming with the fishes. :D

      We seriously need to create a Death By X ranking system for our guild.. style points and multipliers included

    Getting into raiding properly for the first time in Cata (been playing since BC) with my fiancé, and downing Deathwing while he was current content with an awesome guild that we are still with today. That and getting that first epic in BC felt so good!

    Had to pull out of a 40-man Blackwing Lair raid after our dog fell violently ill (she chewed a cane toad and needed a vet ASAP). I was primary tank, my wife was primary healer and we essentially ruined the raid for 38 other people. The dog was OK, but we were gkicked for putting our dog's life ahead of everyone else's entertainment. That night, we learned just how cruel some people could be in the name of epic loot. The incident also triggered a bunch of gquits from nicer guildmates protesting our treatment. Definitely a vivid memory.

    Raiding with my mates when everyone dies. As the only rogue taking on the last 3% of the boss popping all my cooldowns just to survive. Eventually the boss dies and I'm feeling good about myself. Until someone points out my damage is low for not having poison's equipped

      I think that is more than 50 words

        Yeah a friend pointed it to me and so I cut it down. I got too excited entering and retelling the story :)

    Doing progression on ZA back in BC, everyone dead except the holy priest with the boss at 1%. Managed to kill it with a Shadow Word: Pain tick right as he died!
