This Month in WoW - September 2016

This Month in WoW
September 3rd by Blizzard Entertainment

September is here, and so is the Burning Legion! There’s much to see and do, and we have our eye on what the community's up to, too. Here are some of the key things you won’t want to miss this month.

World of Warcraft: Legion

The expansion is live now!

The Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, and the demons of the Burning Legion pour into our world. Their full, terrifying might is fixed on summoning the Dark Titan to Azeroth—and they’ve already located the key to his return.

With the Alliance and Horde devastated, only you can take up Warcraft’s most legendary Artifacts, scour the ancient Broken Isles for relics of the titans, and challenge the Legion before Azeroth’s last hope dies.

Kingdoms will burn!

In-Game Events

Stay up-to-date on all of the upcoming in-game events. Check the in-game calendar for exact event start times for your realm.

Darkmoon Faire: September 4 – 11

Come one, come all—step up for a fun-filled week of activities that will keep you coming back for more! Participate in games to earn special prizes! Everybody's a winner at the Darkmoon Faire!

During the first week of each month, convenient Darkmoon Faire outposts with Darkmoon Portals will appear in Elwynn Forest and Mulgore, offering free rides to Darkmoon Island and the Faire.

Harvest Festival: September 9 – 16

The Harvest Festival is a time to commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives to help friends and allies. Feasts are held outside Orgrimmar and Ironforge in honor of these fallen heroes.

Pirates' Day: September 19

Captain Demeza sails to the goblin town of Booty Bay and recruits land-lovers into her buccaneer ranks.

Visit her or her henchmen in the capital cities if the pirate's life is for you!

Brewfest: September 20 - October 6

First celebrated by the dwarves, Brewfest now holds appeal among all the races of Azeroth!

Visit the Alliance camp outside Ironforge, or the Horde camp outside Orgrimmar, and join the party!

Did You Know?

Eleven years ago, on September 13, 2005, Patch 1.7—Rise of the Blood God brought Zul'Gurub, Arathi Basin, and the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza to World of Warcraft.

For the first time, players ventured into the capital of the Gurubashi jungle trolls. It was here that Jin'do the Hexxer summoned the savage loa Hakkar the Soulflayer into Azeroth, threatening to unite the Gurubashi and Zandalar trolls into an empire that could present a grave threat to the world.
