Ars Technica Tours Blizzard HQ

The fine folks at Ars Technica recently had the opportunity to visit Blizzard Headquarters and tour their magnificent offices. While this doesn’t have to do specifically with World of Warcraft, there’s no coincidence that after 5 years of service to Blizzard, each employee gets a sword, and after 10 years they get a shield. The one shown in the article just happens to bear the crest of Lorderon.

The offices are amazing, and complete with life-size sculptures of figures like Illidan and a massive bronze Orc wolf-rider out front of the building. Head through the photo tour (and even note the “artists representation of Blizzard’s datacenter -although I’m sure they have many- that they weren’t allowed to take pictures of) and see the gloriousness for yourself!

    You know how this made me feel… because I told you. But this makes me have some semblance of hope that there is a job out there, somewhere, for me that will make me that happy. Also, I hope Blizzard starts hiring their own counselling staff… Cause dammit, I want an effing sword and shield! I’m just sayin’ is all.

    Blizzard is hiring all the time! You should check out some of the positions they offer:

    The last time I looked, they were hiring tons of community managers and GMs for World of Warcraft, although I think those are part-time positions. I’m not sure, but it’s worth a look and I think they’re in your general neck of the woods!

    If by general neck of the woods you mean California the state, sure. :P But it’s in Southern California. I did look. I’ll have to keep checking back :)
