Love lingers in the air around Azeroth, and the time has come to shower those closest to your heart with generosity and compassion and show them your genuine appreciation of kindness and affection during this holiday celebration.

The Love is in the Air event has been re-imagined with fresh rewards, new quests and locations, and more!

Something is in the air in the major cities across Azeroth. Artisans have come together to put on the Gala of Gifts, where townsfolk can get tokens of kindness and affection for their loved ones.

Getting to the Gala

The Gala of Gifts can be found outside Stormwind and Orgrimmar, with portals to the gala located in major cities across Azeroth. Gala directors Luciano Delgado (Alliance) and Mahaja Cloudsong (Horde) will help ensure you enjoy your time at the Gala of Gifts.

The Trouble with Love

 A new yearly questline is available—Inspector Snip Snagglebolt and Detective Snap Snagglebolt are on the case again! The Crown Chemical Co. has been kicked out, but something still smells like trouble... Team up with Snagglebolt and his new companion, O.D.I.E., the robotic canine, to sniff out the mystery!

Treat Yourself

Practice self-love by relaxing, relieving stress, and whatever self-care means when you make a scenic getaway through a magic portal, helping others as you revisit interesting places around Azeroth.

To escape to a world of tranquil peace, visit the following daily quest-givers, Gabbo Blinkwink (Alliance) and Aurora Vabsley (Horde). To pamper yourself in self-love, visit the daily quest-givers, Ying (Alliance) and Ning (Horde).

For the Love of Rewards

New rewards are available from holiday vendors, including a new mount, pet, and more:

Someone once told this Heartseeker Mana Ray it was adorable. It has been pursuing that positive feeling ever since.
Whereas some moths are attracted to light, the Heartseeker Moth seems attracted to warm, fuzzy feelings. Some say the phrase "butterflies in your stomach" actually refers to an infestation of Heartseeker Moths.
Share the love with the stylish Exquisite Love Boat Toy that comfortably seats four.
A rose by any other your true appreciation with an Eternal Rose cosmetic customization.
