Blizzard Employee Auctions Off Rare 5-Year Sword: Start Farming for Dollars

by Lambert Varias

The eagle-eyed GameSniped spotted an unusual bit of loot for sale at the real money auction house known as eBay. It’s a sword, but not just any sword: it was given to a Blizzard Entertainment employee in recognition of his or her 5 years with the company. Apparently the sword isn’t binding, so now you have to chance to wield the sword even if you weren’t the first one to find it.

Blizzard holds an annual “Swords and Shields” ceremony to honor longtime employees. Five years of service qualifies for a sword, 10 years a shield and 15 a ring. According to Blizzard the design of the sword changes every year, which makes this item even rarer (if it’s the real deal, that is). However the shield and ring designs stay the same. I haven’t seen the ring but the shield is pretty sweet. It’s a replica of the shield on Lordaeron’s coat of arms.

Bid at least $510 (USD) on eBay to have a shot at earning the sword. Its rack does match the ones shown on Blizzard’s gallery, but I cannot vouch for the authenticity of this product. The auctioneer did say that the sword was given just last year, March 18, 2011 to be exact. That should help you verify if the loot is worth your hard farmed dollars.
