Twitch drops are returning once again and this time around we’re seeing another unheard of reward for tuning in! The Goblin Weather Machine – Prototype 01-B is being offered to players after watching 4 hours of Twitch in the World of Warcraft category with your Twitch and Battle.net accounts linked starting February 1st.
This is yet another example in the precedent that Blizzard seems to be reversing course on FOMO (Fear of missing out) type offerings and giving players the opportunity to get in-game items that were either outright impossible to attain anymore or extremely limited. Previously, at the start of the expansion, it was the ubiquitous Feldrake mount that could only be acquired by an exceedingly rare code attached to a rare card in the Warcraft TCG.
Go give some love to a small streamer, or hit up your usual! Read on for the full details.
The adventures in Dragonflight continue, and with it, more Twitch Drops! Watch any Dragonflight stream on Twitch.tv from February 1, 10:00 a.m. PST until February 5, 23:59 p.m. PST, to earn the Goblin Weather Machine, a toy featuring limited climate-altering properties. Get yours and enjoy sunny weather anywhere you go!*
*Sunny weather not guaranteed. Goblin-made machines undergo somewhat rigorous testing and are mostly safe to use. Our goblin engineers are not responsible for any permanent climate changes brought to Azeroth, Outland, the Dragon Isles, or any other realms due to misuse of this toy. Void where prohibited.
To participate, you must link your Twitch account by visiting https://account.battle.net/connections. If you have changed your password or made any changes to your Twitch or Battle.net account, you will have to relink your accounts. When you relink, there will be a 7-day cooldown before you can relink a new Twitch account. After you’ve claimed your rewards on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the Battle.net region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where your items will be delivered. It can take up to 24 hours to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. Read our Frequently Asked Questions section for more information.
