I just have one question.What is the level of functionality of these servers? Can you paste a character into the server? Would quests work? Does it work, or does it not function, just... owning it?To clarify, are these servers usable in any way or form, or do you just own it for the kicks of saying "I own a server"

They are sitting with a plastic cover, and do not work.It's unlikely you could even power them up. This is an individual blade in a server. Each server was made up of many blades. The software would have been wiped. Absolutely no way would Blizzard let you have the software that runs the servers. They won't even tell you what it is, let alone give you a copy.

The latter. It's a high-tech paperweight with souvenir/sentimental value.

They are not functional at all, but that's not really the point in owning them. These are like those records you frame and never play, the guitar pick from your favourite artist that you won't use yourself but keep as a memorabilia item.The plaque on the servers read: "Blizzard Entertainment has carefully preserved and archived our retired server blades, releasing only a limited number for a noble cause. To us, this server blade is more than just hardware: within the circuits and hard drive, a world of magic, adventure, and friendship thrived. From fishing in quiet lakes to defeating Arthas in Icecrown Citadel, this blade was home to thousands of immersive experiences across the world of Azeroth and beyond. We thank you for the safekeeping of this important part of history."I would love to have one for the above reasons, just as a little piece of history. :)
