Want to own a World of Warcraft server blade for charity?

9:00 PM on 10.13.2011


Next week, Blizzard is going to be doing some special charity auctions featuring retired server-blade hardware. These original World of Warcraft HP BladeSystem servers hosted hundreds of North American and European realms at one time.

The company estimates a total of 2,000 server blades from roughly 500 different realms will be auctioned. Each one will be contained in a custom windowed case featuring the WoW logo. This case offers a view of the computer hardware inside and comes with a commemorative plaque signed by the development team.

The server blades will be auctioned off on eBay in different batches over the next four weeks, with the first auction starting on October 17. A third-party company called Kompolt will be managing the auctions and the best part about this is that all proceeds will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

For more information on the auction schedule or the FAQ about the auctions, you can go here.
