Upcoming Holidays in Azeroth
Within the next week we have three upcoming holidays starting! Two of these holidays offer mounts, toys and achievements that can only be obtained during the event. Check your in game calendar to see the starting dates and times for these events!
The Harvest Festival runs for a week, starting today. This holiday is fairly uneventful, and has no achievements or items of note attached to it. It is a time to commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives to help friends and allies.
The yearly Harvest Festival is now underway in Azeroth. This is a solemn time when the Alliance honors Uther the Lightbringer by lighting a candle at his tomb in the Western Plaguelands, while members of the Horde show their respect to Grommash Hellscream by leaving a bottle of spirits at the base of the Hellscream Memorial in Demon Fall Canyon in Ashenvale.
When: September 18-25
Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar
Commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives to help friends and allies. Feasts are also held outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar in honor of these fallen heroes.
Pirate's Day is a 24 hour event to celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day! During the event you can obtain an achievement and two toys among several temporary cosmetic items.
