The new tankard is an exact scaled-up replica of the in-game version. Taverncraft is now accepting pre-orders for mid-November shipment for the holidays.
“The Tankard O’ Terror is truly massive in size, weight and capacity, and will be a lot of fun for World of Warcraft enthusiasts,” said Jerry Bennington, president of 3 Point Entertainment. “There’s never been anything quite like it, and I’m confident players will enjoy using their tankards to celebrate alongside their in-game characters.”
