Dude! It’s April 1st, which means a lovely April Fools’ day gag from ye old Blizz. I’d love it if it were something WoW related, but I’d bet cheap wow gold they’re gonna take the opportunity to promote Overwatch or sumn. I’m writing this post a little early, so the gag’s not up yet. Buncha other folks have already released theirs so I’m surprised we haven’t got some troll patch notes or the like.
Anyway, that doesn’t mean this month isn’t chock-full of content after a slightly barren March. The Noblegarden Feast is up first, starting April 6th and ending April 13th. It’s a little weird that Horde folks are now taking part in this, but whatevs, more content, right? The PIG’s gonna be sure to find ALL those coins, candy, eggs and goodies… otherwise I’ll just look up a FAQ and get ‘em, what, it’s Easter? I got REAL bacon to chow down on, you dig?
Besides, I’m probably gonna be more invested in my favorite regular wow event, Darkmoon Faire. This month it runs from April 5th to 12th, so there’s some weird overlap with Noblegarden, but it’s not a big deal. Location as usual is Darkmoon Island, just outside Thunder Bluff and Stormwind.
If you’re savvy, you can get a whole heapin’ buncha rewards too. Blizzard’s promising a crayzee seventeen different battle pets, a few of which I don’t have yet. There’s the Darkmoon Tonk, Darkmoon Zeppelin, and Darkmoon Monkey. Two mounts are up for grabs too: Darkmoon Dancing Bear and Swift Forest Strider. Replica armor sets for all classes, but hey, you probably already have the Lightforge set for Paladins, right? There are also of course a TON of heirloom items and heirloom upgrades.
After that? Children’s Week, from April 27th all the way through May 4th. Some people don’t dig Children’s week, but they’re grumps. Yeah, the orphan model looks tres creepy, but the quests are fun, and heck it’s kinda cool that the Blizz acknowledges orphans and gets gamers to do something cool for ‘em, even if it is only virtual. I’m all for it. You can get started on the orphan quests by heading to the Orphan Matrons in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Shattrath City or Dalaran. Do a good deed, get paid. Well, not paid, you get six achievements, the character title “Matron” or”Patron,” and up to10 different battle pets. Not bad for a day’s work, eh?
And that’s yer month of WoW. Of course there’s The Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, which takes place all over Stranglethorn Vale, every Sunday from 2pm. Gotta be honest, the PIG prefers BACON, not fish. That’s yer lot for this week. I’m outtie 5-thou.
