It has to be at least 6 months, as my account has been inactive since early Oct and I don't have a gift sitting in that tab.

I had a break between cata/MoP - way longer than six months ago ;)  

DARN STILL NO FREE TIME  -  DANG U BLIZZ!!1!

It might be that this gift (Or conditions to be eligible) are triggered when the servers reboot (Including login servers?). So if you're on EU, you may have the gift waiting for you in a few hours. I stopped in January myself and haven't received the gift yet either (EU).

Not correct. My GM has been inactive for 2 months and he got the game time today.

Always the same. If you are paying player you are fucked. Why does every company fuck the "loyal" player and only give "new" or not paying members of the community something. This is a fucking joke!

The whole purpose of the free time is to entice people back to the game. That's hardly necessary for current subscribers and totally understandable.

I stopped playing shortly before tomb of sargeras' raid opened, seen a bit of that new isle daily quest tower thing where everybody collaborates, done that chapel dungeon and that's decided to quit.

I received the 7 days free gift.

However, he is not wrong.
Take a look at the advertising of banks e.g. 
A special offer with higher interest rates - only for "new" money, new accounts.
As a customer, you are already with a company - and that's why you are way less interesting then somebody else that the company MAY get as a new customer.

Sometimes it feels like a joke, I am quite with you there. You are with your bank for 20 years. Maybe even with quite some money. (Not millions, but let's say 50 000 or something like that. Sure, that's not much. But it aint nothing either.) And yet everyone who is a new client and who puts maybe 500 bucks into his account is better treated than you are.

Like I said, I understand the logic - why care about somebody who is already your client. 
Nevertheless you definitly get the (correct) impression that you are not appreciated as a client. Which may even leads to looking for a change. (Which - ironically - will make you interesting for the company who didn't care about you for years.)

Well, I stopped playing a little over a year ago right as Nighthold released.  No free week received here yet.

Man, I must have stopped too late.  I stopped mid-tomb and I didn't receive it.


Edit: For those who did receive it, did you have the game installed still? I had uninstalled it.

I cannot find the "Gifts" tab

Never mind. No gifts waiting. Thought my third account might (about 3 years now). May not apply since it is linked to my active account.

Hi Stan I just registered to say thank you for sharing the event that happened in April. Do you know of any future free wow game time giveaways from Blizzard will be? I haven't played in a long time and want to start back but don't have any money right now :(

      Here's a preview of both Moonkin Forms empowered by the Incarnation: Chosen of Elune talent.
      Incarnation: Chosen of Elune alters the look of your Moonkin Form for 30 seconds. In this article, we're previewing empowered Kul Tiran and Zandalari Druid Moonkin Forms.
      Kul Tiran Druid
      Kul Tirans have four color variations of their empowered Moonkin Form.
      #1

      #2

      #3

      #4

      Zandalari Druid
      Zandalari Trolls only have one Moonkin model, so the empowered version does not have any other variation besides this one.

      With Kul Tirans and Zandalari Trolls confirmed for Patch 8.1.5, it's time to speculate about the next set of Allied Races that will be added later in Battle for Azeroth.
      Mechagnomes
      At last year's BlizzCon, Blizzard talked about Mechagnomes on the What's Next panel. The plan in Rise of Azshara is to release Mechagon, a Mythic-only dungeon, that will later be split into two wings, similar to Legion's Karazhan. Here are eight mechagnome variations that were teased at BlizzCon.

      With a new zone and dungeon, the Allied Race would definitely fit the story of Patch 8.2.
      Vulpera
      Vulpera have been rumored as a possible Horde Allied Race in Battle for Azeroth for some time now. They currently have more customization options that Kul Tirans. Sure, they're probably intended for NPC generation for now, but it would be a waste of resources if they were left unreleased.

      The Vulpera are closely tied to the Horde and the story of Vol'dun in Battle for Azeroth. Check out our Vulpera Allied Race Preview for more information about the race.
      Which Allied Races would you like to see next?

      Xal'atath is back in Patch 8.1.5 as part of the Crucible of Storms raid intro. This article contains spoilers.
      While the Priest Artifact has been drained out of power in Legion, Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire is back and players embark on a mission to help her regain power. Cinematics have obviously not been implemented yet and we played through the questline on PTR. Read on for more details!
      The Azsharan Medallion
      The quest chain is started by looting an Azsharan Medallion that drops from Naga Invasion World Quests in Patch 8.1.5. The goal is to take it to the Tortollan Quartermaster, Collector Kojo.
      Orders from Azshara
      <Kojo studies the medallion and grimaces.>
      Ugh... naga.
      This medallion is inscribed with orders. Looks like naga have been commanded to invade our shores and seize artifacts of great power. You know, I recently came upon one such object. See that dagger over there? Nasty thing. Gives me the willies. I swear I hear it whispering to me. I found it nearby at Atal'Gral, on a makeshift altar. Maybe if you take it there, you'll get an idea of how the naga intended to use it.
      You learn that Kojo found a mysterious dagger that's whispering to him at Atal'Gral. Loot Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire near Collector Kojo and make your way to the altar to place Xal'atath there.
      Every Little Death Helps
      <The whispers are faint, but grow louder as you hold the blade in your hand.>
      So weak... need... blood... souls...
      <The voice trails off, but you can still sense the dagger urging you on.>
      Help Xal'atath recover its strength by killing nearby naga.
      Ah... much better. How cruel of that priest to leave me in such a state!
      But enough about me. No doubt you have many questions. I can offer countless answers.
      Unintended Consequences
      <Xal'atath speaks once more.>
      The servants of N'zoth prepare for their master's return. They intend to conjure a scouring storm to wash away all unbelievers.
      The particular ritual they will invoke requires three ancient artifacts. One of void, one of storm, and one of ocean. Even now, I hear the void relic calling to me. It is being empowered... or corrupted. I am not sure which. I see it upon a cliff, overlooking a vast sea. Come, class. We can find a much better use for such a prize.
      You must collect three artifacts for Xal'atath and the first one's located in Drustvar.
      Once you approach Falcon's Rest, take out the novices that are performing a ritual on the stone.
      Once all enemies are defeated, loot the Void Stone and unleash it to help Xal'atath find the two remaining relics.
      Xal'atath has taken on a mortal form.
      The Pirate's Treasure
      I sense another relic. A trident thought lost to the depths. It calls to me, $PlayerName. Do you hear it too? Its song takes form. I see a harbor to the east. An ambitious pirate, greedy and proud. Completely unaware of the power hidden within her hoard of gold. The would-be captain's hubris will not permit her to simply hand over her prize. I fear she must be taught a rather harsh lesson. But that is your speciality, is it not?
      To recover the trident, you must go to Stormsong Valley and the uninstanced version of Freehold where the last boss is located. There's a creature that needs to be killed for Skeleton Key and a treasure chest, which contains Trident of Deep Ocean. Bring both items to Xal'atath to start the next quest.
      The Tempest Crown
      <Xal'atath breathes in deeply and smiles.>
      My strength grows. I can see it clearly now... the third relic we seek. The crown known as Tempest Caller. How fitting that after the fall of Atal'Gral, the gluttonous Toatana would be the one to find the artifact. He was always scuttling about the depths, seeking treasures for his collection. Toatana's greed has left him trapped within a cave he can never leave. The crown awaits us there.
      The final relic can be found in Toatana's Cave in Vol'dun. Xal'atath appears right when you enter the cave.
      Defeat Toatana and loot the final relic - Tempest Caller.
      Twist the Knife
      The relics are ours... as it was meant to be. There is but one more step needed for the great truths to be revealed. The naga sought to summon their storm from a place that echoes with an ancient power. Though this site has had countless names over the ages, you mortals know it as the Precipice of Oblivion. I will go on ahead and begin preparations. Join me there.
      Go find Xal'atath at the Precipice of Oblivion near the Crucible of Storms entrance.
      Enter the Crucible and place all three relics as offering. You will notice a big eye glaring at you. A cutscene will begin to play as you place the final one and you will be teleported out of the Crucible. The cutscene isn't implemented yet and we won't see it before 8.1.5 goes live.

      You are now supposed to return to the Great Seal and tell Talanji of what transpired in Stormsong. We entered the Crucible once again and saw additional Xal'alath & N'zoth roleplay, suggesting that Xal'atath betrayed you and the dagger is actually serving N'zoth.
      Talanji was despawned for some reason for Zandalari Trolls and we were not able to report back to her. It's good to finally see Azshara's influence and N'zoth. Let us know what you think about the questline in the comments!
