World Events

Arena Skirmishes Bonus Event (April 16th - April 23rd)

Blizzard LogoBlizzard (Source)

Sharpen your swords and reinforce your boards, because you’re called to the PvP Arena for the hectic mayhem of Skirmishes.

THIS WEEK: ARENA SKIRMISHES

All week, from anywhere in Azeroth, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window, and then under Casual, choose Arena Skirmish and JOIN BATTLE. You’ll be matched up with teammates and provided with opponents to kill in the Arena. You can also queue for a Premade group or create your own group within the Premade tab. 

Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and in Boralus has a quest for you–The Arena Calls. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.
    • Quest requirement: Win 10 Arena PvP Skirmishes
    • Reward: A PvP loot box
  • Passive buff: +50% honor gains from Skirmishes

If you’ve been looking to make some Honor gains, this is the week to do it!

WHAT ARE BONUS EVENTS?

The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

Arathi Blizzard PvP Brawl (April 16th - April 23rd)

Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, 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.

I wish the Hearthstone toys would work differently. After 12 years of playing, I'm so conditioned to open my bag to hearth that I never really get to use the toys. What would be better I think would be a toggle effect or something.

      You can never really have enough alts it seems and leveling them can be annoying for a lot of players. Redditor skybeuter pointed out a cheaper way to boost your alts to level 110, considering the regular char boost service costs around 53 Euro.
      What you do is set up a secondary Battle.net account under your main one and set it up as a trial account. You then then take advantage of the current 44% sale on the regular edition of Battle for Azeroth, which includes a character level boost and costs 25E.

      Since the two accounts are linked the level boost can be applied to your main account as well, saving you 28 Euro in the process! The sale ends on July 8th.

      Here comes the big entry point into the new patch as Azshara welcomes both the Alliance and Horde into her domain in an appropriately flashy manner.
      Only the Alliance version is available at the moment, but the differences should be minimal based on what's we've seen and we'll update the post once the Horde one is posted.
