Last updated on Apr 01, 2020 at 15:02 by Aernath 1 comment

The Ahn'Qiraj War Effort is a server-wide event that involves massive amounts of material contributions from both factions to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj.

1.

What is the Ahn'Qiraj War Effort?

The War Effort tasks all players on each server with collecting a massive amount of materials for the upcoming war, as well as acting as a timegate for the opening of the Ahn'Qiraj raids.

Once players had managed to gather all of the required materials, a 10-hour battle would ensue and players with The Scepter of the Shifting Sands Icon The Scepter of the Shifting Sands would be able to obtain their Scarab Lord title and mount.

You can read more about how to obtain this reward and find the Scepter in our dedicated guide below.

Spending your Commendation Signets

The signets that you can earn as both Alliance and Horde can be spent to receive additional boxes of Ahn'Qiraj War Effort Supplies Icon Ahn'Qiraj War Effort Supplies. Note that, as you increase the amount of signets you spend at once, the value of your loot increases.

If you spend 5 signets, you are likely to only receive some green items and scrolls, but if you spend 30 signets, your loot will mostly be blues and, if you are lucky, epics.

For each hand-in, you will only receive 1 box, regardless of which quest you hand in. Only the value of the loot inside changes.
