WoW's 6th Anniversary
Feat of Strength. Be sure to grab it on all your toons!
World of Warcraft turns six on November 23rd, 2010! It’s been a truly incredible six years, and we’d like to thank you all for joining us on this momentous occasion. To celebrate, players that log into the game between the dates of November 30th and December 14th will receive a feat of strength added to their Achievements. We look forward to another great year ahead and many more to come!
Unfortunately, it does not seem yet as though there will be any other rewards for this event, such as the
Baby Blizzard Bear
offered in previous years.
There isn't a pet planned for this year, no. We plan to reserve this sort of celebratory bonus for the most notable milestones or events in the future.
Oh well, maybe something interesting will still happen... like the end o

This phase adds several new quests in the capital cities of each faction. The full listing is below.
Remember, for the full info, you can always check our completed
Elemental Invasion Guide!
Zarhym made an interesting post on the new community site regarding the invasion! Seems it will be even sooner before we see the next phase of the invasion!
The time between the start of stage 2 and stage 3 was shorter. I can tell you the current plan is to make the time between stage 3 and 4 even shorter. ;)

Phase 2: November 8 - November ???
Tablets of the Earth
Tablets of Fire
Go to the harbor / zeppelin tower and talk to the quest NPC there. A short event will begin, where you - imbued with the powers of the Tablets - need to use your new abilities to fight various elemental attackers off. Remember, use water to counter fire, air to counter earth, and fire to counter water. After the event is over loot the tablets and turn the quest in.

Day of the Dead 2010 Quest Guide + Information!
2010/11/01 at 3:45 PM
Day of the Dead
event has begun yet again in the World of Warcraft! This holiday remains
from 2009, so veteran players will find that there's nothing to do. It's also worth mentioning that the single quest available in the event doesn't seem to have reset from last year, so there's
no reason to participate. Newer players, however, should definitely head over to the nearest major city graveyard and get their achievement ASAP, as the event only lasts one day!
This event is a memorial holiday in which we celebrate the honor and memory of those who have passed on. They make a spiritual return to our lands, which we prepare with food and festivities, for only two days:
. The holiday is a
in-game event, similar to
, but it's pretty interesting regardless!

Elemental Invasion Has Begun!
2010/11/01 at 12:45 PM
One of the final Cataclysm pre-launch events has begun! Elementals will now be invading remote outposts — and a few major cities as well! It's your job to fight back and eventually gain a rare Feat of Strength -
Tripping the Rifts
. Along with the invasions, the Twilight Hammer cultists are now stirring up trouble in the most important cities of the Alliance and the Horde - Stormwind and Orgrimmar. The entire event is still in Phase 1 (out of 4), so the danger isn't extreme... but who knows how grim things will become in a week or three?

Deathwing is Coming—and He Is Literally Going To Kill You
2010/10/26 at 8:13 PM
I'm reading a blue post from Zarhym right now, and he's giving us a chilling warning of things to come...
Apparently in the period preceding Cataclysm, Deathwing is going to be flying from zone to zone, murdering people. The implication behind the post is that once a day, Deathwing will fly down from the sky in a particular zone, and
incinerate every living creature in the area.
Everyone who is killed this way will earn a Feat of Strength for having been killed by Deathwing! Could it be ? We'll see!
Edit: Bibi from MMO-Champion has posted a
of the event!
One of Azeroth’s oldest adversaries will soon tear through the Elemental Plane to reforge the world in flame, but this foe won’t be conducting his reign of terror from the confines of a castle or lair. Deathwing is a destructive force the likes of which adventurers have yet to see in World of Warcraft, and his appetite for devastation can only be satisfied

It's Talk Like A Pirate Day in World of Warcraft, Too!
2010/09/19 at 4:42 PM
September 19th (today) is
in World of Warcraft, an in-game version of the international holiday
Talk Like A Pirate Day
! There's nothing new this year, so I'm just going to repost last year's guide for you guys, in case there's some new players out there who haven't had to opportunity to participate! While Pirates' Day not a full-blown holiday (such as
Midsummer Fire Festival
), it still provides an amusing distraction from the everyday grind - complete with pirate costumes and flagons of grog!
