It's official: We've reached peak selfie saturation.

The self-objectifying social habit is everywhere, spawning a barrage of selfie-enhancing accessories and a seemingly endless, Facebook timeline–destroying stream of duck faces. Now, selfies are infiltrating the one of the most iconic video games of the last decade—World of Warcraft.

Through the game's new Patch 6.1, WoW gamers can obtain a S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera. With it, they can take selfies of their characters making a range of facial expressions, including the dreaded duck face.

The only issue with the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera, as Polygon notes, is that it currently cuts off your character's hand when it takes the picture, though this could easily be fixed through a subsequent patch.

Players can obtain the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera by completing the level 100 Field Photography mission. If they complete another mission called Lens Some Hands, the camera will be upgraded to the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera Mk. II, which equips it with three filters. That's right, filters. Just like Instagram.

So if you're into selfies and WoW, go complete some missions. The future of Draenor may depend on your selfie-taking abilities.
