On January 16, 2007 the second expansion for World of Warcraft launched. The Burning Crusade turns 10 today!
The expansion brought us two new playable races - Draenei and Blood Elves. We got flying mounts that were usable in Outland at Level 70. Outland became accessible via the Dark Portal in Blasted Lands. Sockets were introduced to the game and added to Jewelcrafting. The original Karazhan was added in the Burning Crusade expansion. The expansions added Tier 4 through 6 Sets. Patches
Patch 2.1 added the Black Temple and daily quests and the opportunity to enter Hyjal. Attunement wasn't as easy as it is today. For Hyjal, you had to complete The Vials of Eternity, but the problem was that both Kael'thas Sunstrider and Lady Vashj dropped a limited amount of vials and it took months for a full raid to get attuned.
Patch 2.2 added voice comms to the client.
Patch 2.3 added Zul'Aman as a 10-player raid where you could get Amani War Bear and brought quality of life improvements to 20 - 60 leveling.
Patch 2.4 introduced Isle of Quel'Danas, the first outdoor zone that was added with a patch. There was a lot of world PvP, daily quests, where the whole server had to participate to unlock a vendor, Magister's Terrace (where we learned that Tempest Keep was merely a setback) and the Sunwell Plateau raid.
Remember Nihilum? They snatched a lot of world first back in the day!
Nihilum was the first guild to down Archimonde in Mount Hyjal.
Method was the first guild that defeated Lady Vashj.
Kael'thas Sunstrider was downed by Nihilum, another world first.
Illidan Stormrage was brought to justice by Nihilum. He drops two legendary items - Warglaive of Azzinoth and Warglaive of Azzinoth.
SK Gaming downed Kil'jaeden. who drops Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury.
Are there any fond memories that come to your mind when you recall "The Burning Crusade"?
Blizzard still hasn't resolved their issues with reward distribution for PvP Season 1. Initially, Starym wrote about how rewards needed to be re-evaluated and now we got an update about what actually happened and why there were delays.
Each season, we reward titles to the players at the top of the 3v3 and RBG ladders based on the number of players we consider active in the bracket. For the last few seasons, we have only considered players active if they have a rating above 1000. For Legion Season 1, we made the mistake of also requiring players to have 50 wins to be considered. As a result, far fewer players were considered active than intended. Since rewards are a percentage of this set of people, we ended up giving out too few rewards, which in turn meant that many players received a lower-tier reward than they should have.
Fortunately, we have a plan in place that will allow us to fix the issue and grant rewards based on criteria we've used in previous seasons. Within the next few weeks, we will re-evaluate the ladder from Season 1 and redistribute rewards. When this occurs, you will either receive the same reward you have currently, or, in some cases, a higher-tier reward.
Rewards are coming and should be redistributed next week!
Just a quick update, we're still reviewing the accuracy of the data, but barring any unforeseen problems, we hope to re-distribute rewards at some point next week. (Source)

Vengeance DH vs. Mythic +3 VotW solo video, how very lore-appropriate!
We've already seen a Warlock solo Mythic CoS, but now we're upgrading to actual Mythic+! Oldschool solo artist Mionelol is back after some Karazhan solo kills (including Shade of Medivh and Viz'aduun) and is taking aim at Mythic Keystones, getting a lore-appropriate start with Vengeance Demon Hunter vs. Vault of the Wardens +3. There was "only" one chest at the end, so clearly more class tuning is required!
Here's Mione's armory, featuring a 896/893 equipped item level, in case you were wondering.
