wow The Month Ahead in World of Warcraft

1 post in this topic

14513-the-month-ahead-in-world-of-warcra

December is a busy month for most people and Blizzard has made sure that there is plenty going on in game too.

 

We've put together a quick run-down of the month for you and the major events to pay attention to on the live servers.

 

This weekend sees the first Bonus Event in action, where Arena Skirmishes award a huge amount of bonus honor when completed. If you need something to do in game and you haven't tried PvP, we would definitely recommend you choose to farm some gear now! The event will continue until the 7th December.

Bonus Events in December

 

9th - 14th December: Time to return to the glorious days of the Burning Crusade with Outland Timewalking. 

 

16th - 21st December: All that farming during the Arena Skirmish event is finally going to pay off. Get yourself into Battlegrounds and take part in the Battleground Bonus Event!

 

23rd - 28th December: Tired of farming rares for those pesky reputation items? Fear not, the Draenor Dungeon Event is here! Gather your friends and speed through the dungeons of Draenor until your reputation bars are nothing but Exalted. 

 

30th December - 4th January: Have you been neglecting your pets? Are they gathering dust at level 1, never to be used? Grab your pet bandages and your favourite companions and dive into the world of the Pet Battle Bonus Event.

Darkmoon Faire

 

Make sure not to get too involved with farming Arena Skirmishes this weekend, since the Darkmoon Faire is back in town! It will run from 6th - 13th December. Make sure to get down to the Faire and show off your skills at the various games, hosted by your favourite NPCs. If you want to display your new-found arena skills, then make sure to jump into the Darkmoon Arena for a chance to win the prize in the middle. Be warned, it won't be easy!

 

In 6.2.2, only one new toy has been revealed: the inv_misc_seesaw.jpgDarkmoon Seesaw, which can be purchased for 50 tickets from Gelvas Grimegate.

 

If you'd like some tips on how to get the most out of the Darkmoon Faire, make sure to visit our guide here.

Winter's Veil

 

Are those sleigh bells we hear? Nog and cookies that we smell? Of course! Great-father Winter is back to visit us for Winter's Veil! Make sure to journey to Ironforge and Orgrimmar to collect your Winter's Veil treats, but it's not all fun and games. NPCs will be ready to hand out tasks for you to complete, with cooking recipes and toys to be earnt. If you're really feeling the festive spirit, you may find yourself lucky enough to earn the brand new festive mount inv_misc_pet_pandaren_yeti_grey.jpgMinion of Grumpus.

 

Other notable new additions to the Winter's Veil festivities include:

  • Grumpling, a new pet.
  • A variety of new toys, including the ability_malkorok_blightofyshaarj_yellow.Yellow Snowball, with the very important description: "Not for consumption".
  • New questlines, which reward the new currency achievement_worldevent_merrymaker.jpgMerry Supplies, used to purchase Garrison decorations.
  • A particularly useful new gathering tool, which is unusually a consumable, the inv_drink_23.jpgFizzy Apple Cider.

If you're feeling the chill during this festive period and need some pointers to help you out, just visit our guide here.

      In addition to pets coming with the Deadmines Pet Battle Dungeon, the latest 7.2.5 PTR build added two pets that drop from the Time-Lost Wallet inside the Deaths of Chromie Scenario and our friends over at WarcraftPets seem to have discovered a new fairie dragon pet possibly from Argus.
      Ageless Bronze Drake (Ageless Bronze Drake)
      The pet is a miniature version of the Reins of the Bronze Drake mount and has a unique Rewind Time ability "This particular drake has oddly retained its age throughout its travels, but its size has certainly changed."
      Bronze Proto-Whelp (Bronze Proto-Whelp)
      The pet's a miniature version of the Reins of the Time-Lost Proto-Drake (Storm Peaks) mount and comes with the an ability to bend time "The Bronze Proto-Whelps have been discovered only in the most peculiar of timelines."
      Sun Darter Hatchling - Faerie Dragon Pet
      Quintessence from WarcraftPets suggests this pet may be from Argus as noted by its description. If you try to paste the item in-game (Patch 7.2), it seems to coincide with a mount tagged named as "REUSE", however 7.2.5 Mount Journal lists the pet and so does the in-game tooltip.

      Sun Darter Hatchling drops from Oddly-Colored Egg (Source N/A) "This unique species of faerie dragon is not usually found on Azeroth."

      Nether Disruptor is again up in both regions and with Seal Your Fate, you can get a free Seal of Broken Fate each day the Nether Disruptor is active.
      The good news is that these bonus seals go beyong the normal 3 limit. All you need to do is accept the quest Fate Sealed from Maggie "Slither" Masterson (coords: 41.19 // 64.46).
      World Boss Apocron

      The permanent Nether Disruptor perk (Epic Hunter) always unlocks a Broken Shore World Boss that drops item level 900 loot and this time, it's Apocron. Below is the loot he drops.

      Four new bosses were added to the Broken Shore. Base item level of their loot is 890+. Old world bosses remain untouched with 860+ loot. The bosses will spawn when the Nether Disruptor's active.
      Patch 7.2 World Boss Loot Tables
      Below you can find loot from the new world bosses. We don't know yet if they share respawn timers with existing world bosses.

      Several Serenity members joined Method recently, but it doesn't seem to be the end. Slootbag confirmed on Twitch that some Serenity members (Naguura included) are forming a new guild for Mythic Tomb of Sargeras progression on Twisting Nether (EU - Horde), but haven't decided the name just yet.
      According to a reddit post, they won't be competing for world firsts and instead, they're looking for a place in the Top 10 - 20. Time commitments will be 50% less than what they were in Serenity and each raider only needs to maintain 2 geared characters (down from 5).
      The guild will still be hardcore and raid 7 days a week (6 hours a day) during the first weeks of ToS progression. The roster's only missing healers and recruitment may be open soon.

      This week's 7.2.5 PTR patch added a new tracking quest (fix?) for the undiscovered Shoe Shine Kit vanity item.
      Shoe Shine Kit is one of the few items that haven't been discovered yet and it should be available in the game since Legion launch. Every Sunday, Sheddle Glossgleam leaves the toy store (2nd floor of Photonic Playground - 44, 47) at 12 AM (PST) / 3 AM (EST) realm time and goes drinking in Legendermain Lounge. During his absence, a chest spawns, but nobody managed to open it yet. The WoW community has cracked down mysteries far harder than this, which is why I believe the chest couldn't be opened until now and Blizzard stealth fixed this in the latest PTR build by adding a new tracking quest related to the toy - Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.  Notice the different ID in the old quest -  Shoe Shine Kit Tracking Quest.

      Comment from discussion Still a mystery: Every Sunday morning (tonight) Sheddle Glossgleam leaves behind a chest that nobody has unlocked.
