Sure, there's an expansion in mid-launch, but that doesn't mean we can just ignore
the Harvest Festival
, does it? Running from September 24th (that's yesterday) until the 30th, the Harvest Festival is an in-game holiday remembering those that made the ultimate sacrifice. Both Horde and Alliance celebrate the holiday - the Horde commemorate the death of Grom Hellscream
and his last act of defiance against the Pit Lord Mannoroth that freed the orcs from their enslavement to the Blood Curse, while the Alliance celebrates the life of Uther the Lightbringer
, hero of the Second War and martyr of the Scourge.
You also get to pig out, because some things are universal.
So head on over to Blizzard's official preview
and then get your festival fix in game.
It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in
Mists of Pandaria,
World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
