1 post in this topic

15101-the-month-ahead-in-world-of-warcra

The new year is here and with it comes a brand new month of events for our adventurers in Azeroth. Make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening over the next 30 days!

 

Our first event, the Pet Battle Bonus Event, is carrying over from December and is due to end on 4th January. Make sure you visit our post about the event and make the most of what is left!

 

Weekly Bonus Events in January 

 

6th - 11th January: The first of the Timewalking events will be throwing us back into the icy reaches of Northrend!

 

13th - 18th January: Are you still missing those few Apexis Crystals for the mount? Don't worry, the Apexis Crystal Bonus Event is returning.

 

20th - 25th January: Dust off your PvP gear and get ready to battle, the Arena Skirmishes Bonus Event is back!

 

27th January - 1st February: Still feeling cold after that visit to Northrend? Not a problem, it's time to venture into the fiery grasp of Cataclysm Timewalking!

Darkmoon Faire

 

As with every month, the first week marks the return of the Darkmoon Faire! It will be running from 3rd - 9th January, so make sure you visit the tents for fun, games and achievements! 

 

You can always check out our guide for the Darkmoon Faire here.

 

Stranglethorn Fishing Competition

 

Unfortunately, in January there are no major world events, with Winter Veil ending and Lunar Festival starting next month. Why not spend your time trying out the fishing competition operating out of Booty Bay!

 

This competition can get pretty competitive, but it's definitely worth trying if you are interested in some of the prizes available:

 

1st Place: Can choose between a variety of "fishing" items, such as inv_fishingpole_01.jpgArcanite Fishing Poletrade_fishing.jpgHook of the Master Anglerinv_boots_cloth_21.jpgBoots of the Bay and inv_fabric_mageweave_02.jpgHigh Test Eternium Fishing Line. If you'd prefer a non-fishing related prize, you can also grab an heirloom ring for your alts, inv_jewelry_ring_39.jpgDread Pirate Ring.

 

2nd Place: You can choose from either the inv_boots_cloth_21.jpgBoots of the Bay or inv_jewelry_ring_39.jpgDread Pirate Ring.

 

3rd Place: No choice here unfortunately, you will just get inv_fabric_mageweave_02.jpgHigh Test Eternium Fishing Line.

 

If you are setting out for the first time to compete, here are some of our tips for getting yourself placed in the top 3:

  • Your inv_misc_rune_01.jpgHearthstone is your friend. Make sure it is set at Booty Bay for a quick return.
  • Make sure you have the inv_misc_fish_02.jpgFind Fish ability ready.
  • The competition is similar to camping a rare mount. Be polite and avoid other players.
  • Make sure you have some inv_potion_166.jpgElixir of Water Walking, unless you are a Death Knight or Shaman.
  • Ignore the general chat channels. People will attempt to mess with you by inflating their numbers of fish caught. Just because they say they have 15 fish doesn't mean they do.
  • Make sure you know which reward you want! Don't waste time thinking about it at the end.

      The first micro-holiday, Call of the Scarab, brings with it a gold-making opportunity. Selling meat can be profitable.
      Warlord Gorchuk and Master Sergeant Fizzlebolt are Meat vendors and you can find them near the Scarab Gong in Silithus for the duration of the event. They allow the turn-in of 20 pieces of various meat for 20 Alliance Qiraji Commendations // 20 Horde Qiraji Commendations per turn-in for your faction.
      The following meat can be farmed and resold on the Auction House.

      Pet Battle Dungeons are here. So far, only Wailing Caverns are available for testing. It's a scenario with 7 stages and increasing difficulty, where you fight your way up to get an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and eventually, Damp Pet Supplies.
      Pet Battle Dungeons
      If you have at least one level 25 pet, go to Dalaran and talk to Serr'ah. She will offer a quest called A Call from the Caverns.  Teleport to Orgrimmar and go to Crossroads. There you'll have to find Muyani. She offers another quest Wailing Critters, which rewards Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. Talk to her again and you will enter a scenario (Scenario: Wailing Critters) with 7 stages. Wailing Caverns is the only pet battle dungeon that's currently available and it functions like a scenario. You will be fighting pets and the difficulty increases as you progress through stages. You are able to Revive Battle Pets inside dungeons. When you complete the quest and turn it in, you will be offered another weekly quest, but this time, you won't be able to revive or heal your pets - Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns. When complete, you'll get Damp Pet Supplies. The bag contains some of the recently added pets. New Pets

      Patch 7.2 adds a new dungeon called Cathedral of Eternal Night. Drops from existing dungeons had an item level bump, Karazhan has been split into two and Vantus Runes are coming for Mythic+ dungeons.
      Dungeon Changes
      Health of enemies inside dungeons has been increased. To compensate, the item level of items that drop inside dungeons has been increased. Normal difficulty - item level 825+ Heroic difficulty - item level 845+ Mythic difficulty - item level 865+ The changes are really good as dungeons will stay relevant throughout the expansion. In previous expansions, dungeons were only used for initial gearing and for the daily dungeon bonus. Karazhan has been split into Lower / Upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder. Mythic+ Dungeons
      Are receiving Vantus Runes in 7.2. You can use one per dungeon / week.
      Vantus Rune: Black Rook Hold Vantus Rune: Cathedral of Eternal Night Vantus Rune: Court of Stars Vantus Rune: Darkheart Thicket Vantus Rune: Eye of Azshara Vantus Rune: Halls of Valor Vantus Rune: Maw of Souls Vantus Rune: Neltharion's Lair Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Lower) Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Upper) Vantus Rune: Vault of the Wardens Vantus Rune: Violet Hold Vantus Rune: The Arcway Tomb of Sargeras Vantus Runes
      Vantus Rune: Demonic Inquisition Vantus Rune: Fallen Avatar Vantus Rune: Fel Titan Vantus Rune: Goroth Vantus Rune: Harjatan the Bludger Vantus Rune: Kil'jaeden Vantus Rune: Mistress Sassz'ine Vantus Rune: Sisters of the Moon Vantus Rune: The Desolate Host Vantus Rune: Tomb of Sargeras What do you think about Vantus Runes being added to Mythic+ dungeons?
