wow The Month Ahead in World of Warcraft: January

1 post in this topic


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.

      A preview of Tier 21 Sets dropping in Antorus, the Burning Throne raid added in Patch 7.3.
      Antorus won't be opening immediately when Patch 7.3 goes live, but at a later point, just like the Tomb of Sargeras. Tier 21 Set bonuses aren't available at this time.
      In this article, we're previewing Normal difficulty Tier 21 Sets. Mythic difficulty Tier 21 Sets can be found here.
      Death Knight

      Demon Hunter

      Lightforged Golem is one of 7.3 mounts that deserves a separate preview. It has unique animations and it's quite probable that it will be related to Antorus, the Burning Throne raid as a reward for completing Glory of the Argus Raider.
      Below are screenshots of the mount including the /mountspecial animation.

      We found two news pets that were added to the game in Build 24473 of Patch 7.3! Naxxy is a floating necropolis and Dibbler's a mini spider tank.
      The first pet is Naxxy that will be available during Hallow's End for 150 Tricky Treats. It's a floating mini version of Naxxramas! The pet is BoE and can be traded - Naxxy.

      The second pet is Dibbler that can be found inside Leprous Sack of Pet Supplies rewarded for a new 7.3 pet daily quest (Bert's Bots). The item's also BoE - Model D1-BB-L3R.

      Horde players can purchase Vicious War Fox from Deathguard Netharian in Orgrimmar for 1 Vicious Saddle.

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.
