Events add a new layer to gameplay, giving players a much-needed break from grinding. Some even give event exclusive items that become more valuable as time passes. Events also increase interest for World of Warcraft (WoW), attracting amateur and veteran players. Keep in mind that events can be weekly, monthly, or even holidays. Blizzard planned an event-packed month for May, where citizens of Azeroth celebrate.
5 World of Warcraft Events in May
Children’s Week: a Battleground bonus event where players receive Honor at an increased rate.
PVP Brawl: capture the flag at Warsong Gulch.
Darkmoon Faire: showing sights from all around Azeroth and beyond, as well as games that test the mind and courage of players.
Legion Dungeon: final bosses drop an extra item upon defeat.
Spring Balloon Festival: a three-day mini holiday was active.
The 2 Ongoing Events
The two current events are the Pet Battle, and the PVP Brawl: Deepwind Dunk.
Pet Battle: triples the experience for gaining pets, so go out and battle (same applies to the PVP Brawl in Pandaria).
PVP Brawl: Deepwind Dunk: players must grab a ball from either the center, northern, or southern areas of the map, and then go to the enemy base. From there, players can attempt either a long range shot or go for the dunk, while trying to avoid enemies from killing them. These two events end on May 23, so take the chance now before it’s too late.
As May is coming to an end, Cataclysm dungeons will be open every three weeks for the Timewalking event. Players can revisit the dungeons from the Cataclysm expansion, and gain loot from those dungeons scaled to the character’s natural level. The event will be open for characters level 86 and above. Timewalking is an excellent opportunity to gather World of Warcraft Gold since these items cannot be obtained anywhere else.
On the 27th of May, the Glowcap Festival will take place in Zagarmarsh. Help the sporelings keep the great Fshoo alive. You never know, they might reward you with amazing things. Lastly, there’s an Arena Skirmish Event that will roll over to June. While the event is active, players earn Honor faster through Arena Skirmishes.
Is there Anything Else?
Weekly events rotate every week, and the dungeons for another expansion will be available for Timewalking in another three weeks. PVP Brawls rotate roughly every two weeks. Besides, there are several micro-holidays throughout those periods where players won’t run out of things to do. It gives them something else to break the grind of leveling up and gathering WoW Gold. Expect more events to come this year. Happy adventuring!
