April showers might bring May flowers, but it also brings with it a great many things to do within World of Warcraft. Make sure you keep an eye on your in-game calendar for exact start and end times so you don’t miss a thing!

In-Game Events

Darkmoon Faire: April 2–April 8
The Darkmoon Faire is open for business once more! Meet Silas Darkmoon and his troupe, play games that test mind and the nerve, and behold exotic sights from the four corners of Azeroth . . . and beyond!

March of the Tadpoles Micro Holiday: April 5

Today, the baby Winterfin murlocs of Borean Tundra complete their trip across the Westrift. This event lasts one day only so don’t miss out on the fun!

PvP Brawl—Frozen Arathi Basin: April 5-11

Great ready for cold weather in this week’s PvP Brawl. Enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. Put away your bathing suit and pull out your parka. You’ll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumber yard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a –mostly– frozen lake.  One more thing, the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you’re prepared for the weather.

Burning Crusade Timewalking Dungeon Event: April 5-11

While this event is active, players level 71 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players and their times down to revisit past dungeons from The Burning Crusade expansion. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate for a players’ regular level.

Arena Skirmish Bonus Event: April 12- April 18

While this event is active, Arena Skirmishes will award Honor at an increased rate. Will you answer the call to battle?

Noblegarden: April 17- April 24

The feast of Noblegarden has arrived. The proving grounds of each race, the place where young heroes first test their strength, each holds cleverly hidden treasure eggs. How many can you find?

World Quest Bonus Event: April 19-April 25

While this event is active, completing Broken Isles World Quests awards bonus reputation with the appropriate faction.

PvP Brawl: Gravity Lapse: April 19-April 25

Gravity getting you down? Step into the Eye of the Storm and be prepared for a whole new en-lighten-ing experience. Every minute, players on the battlefield will find themselves launched into the air, only to gently fall toward the ground once more in a perpetual aerial ballet as they try to accrue enough resources to take the win home for their team.

Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking Dungeon Event: April 26- May 2

While this event is active, players level 81 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players and their items down to revisit past dungeons from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate for a player’s regular level.

Volunteer Guard Day Micro-Holiday: April 28

Today, the denizens of Azeroth and Draenor take some time to celebrate the hard work that their guards perform. /salute a guard to show you care!

Eye on Battle Pets —Do You Even Bunny Hop?

With Noblegarden occurring this month, it seemed like a good time to highlight some of the various rabbit or bunny types of pets that pet battlers can collect — including the newest addition the Noblegarden Bunny.

  • Holiday: New Noblegarden Bunny
    Noblegarden kicks off April 16, and you’ll be able to purchase a the new Noblegarden Bunny from the holiday vendor for 100 chocolate. It’s sure to match your holiday finery so get out there and collect those eggs!
  • Dungeon Achievement: Hopling
    Strange things are happening in the Stormstout Brewery, but to see some of those things, you’re going to need a little help from Ling-Ting’s Favorite Tea sold by Auntie Stormstout within the dungeon. Collect the golden hoplings tucked in the nooks and crannies of this dungeon and you’ll earn the Achievement Ling-Ting’s Herbal Journey and a new Hopling companion pet.
  • Engineering: De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion
    You’ll either need to be an Engineer to create the De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion (learned from Gnomish Engineering Trainers at 475) or you’ll need to make friends with one to add this high-tech companion to your collection. This is a great pet for those with allergies. No fur!
  • Boss Fight: Darkmoon Rabbit
    It looks so cute and fluffy, but don’t let the Darkmoon Rabbit fool you. You’re going to need to gather a Raid group and head to the Darkmoon Faire to take on this beast. If you’re lucky, you’ll gain a Darkmoon Rabbit for a companion.
  • Spawn: Dust Bunny
    It doesn’t have to be spring to do a little spring cleaning. Just click on the special rugs found around Dalaran to get the Spring Cleaning buff and then go do a little hunting for Dust Bunnies. You’ll need to do battle to catch them and your buff will only last for 15 minutes.
  • Pet Battle: Black Lamb Alright, so it’s not a bunny, but we couldn’t resist throwing the Black Lamb into the mix. It’s spring after all and it’s so cute and fluffy! You’ll need to venture into Elwynn Forest to battle for one of these companions. (Good luck Horde players.)

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 5/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal Antorus, having killed every boss we've pulled.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: YES. We badly need RANGED DPS, but exceptional melee will be considered, particularly mail.
      Healers: MAYBE. We'd like a restoration/balance druid who can dps as well as they can heal and are okay being expected to play either role.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      Our Patch 7.3.5 zone preview continues with Fate's Veil, Forge of Aeons, and more.
      Patch 7.3.5 adds several new zones to the game and it looks like they might be used for scenarios.
      Fate's Veil (Void Elves Unlock Scenario)
      The zone is very similar to the the in Locus-Walker & Alleria quest chain in Mac'Aree, possibly related to Void Elves. It has a cool skybox with Old God infested planets.

      Forge of Aeons (Lightforged Draenei Unlock Scenario)

      The Sunwell

      Uuna Scenario
      A new zone called "A Dark Place" was added in Patch 7.3.5. It's referred to as "Uuna Scenario" in the game files. Not much information is available at this time, but you probably came across Uuna on Argus. Uuna's Doll drops from an ur'zul elite (The Many-Faced Devourer). It's most likely going to be some sort of solo content, where players help Uuna.

      New scarab mounts related to the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday have been added to the game in Patch 7.3.5.
      We found four new models in the game files so far as of 7.3.5 Build 25632. They all share the same flavor text and will only be available during the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday.
      "The Qiraji War Tank has only been seen recently during the Call of the Scarab, could this hint at a resurfacing of the deadly creatures?"
