, will even add Pepe to your own Order Hall!

Darkmoon Faire Old Gods Updates
noted the similarities between the Darkmoon Faire and Old Gods
. Each time we see the Whispers of the Old Gods logo with the blinking eyeballs, it makes us think of the Darkmoon Faire sign.
Our suspicions were correct; tragedy strikes the Darkmoon Faire sign, which breaks and no longer can blink. The quest
humorously implies that the Old Gods are sponsoring the Darkmoon Faire.
Our sign is broken! The eyeball is stuck and won't blink anymore! Our masters... I mean, our sponsors, are going to be really upset if they find out. They always whisper that proper logos are important for branding.
The materials to fix the sign aren't anything too fancy... are you up for a quick trip to Ahn'Qiraj and Ulduar? <Name>, speak to Professor Thaddeus Paleo if you'd be interested.
The Old Gods also visit the Darkmoon Faire in the patch:
is a battle pet from Darkmoon Isle. When the adorable artwork was revealed as part of a Hearthstone card, players began clamoring for this creature to show up as a pet or a plush. Unsurprisingly,
is best friends with Pepe...they know how effective being cute is when it comes to getting power!
also sells the new vanity item
. Currently in-game, he's the NPC who helps you complete your Darkmoon Decks for trinkets, but also has a slip-of-the-tongue implying that he works for a more sinister group.

offers some answers. Your Garrison is set on fire and your followers celebrate before making their great escape by...what else? Completing a mission. Your followers go up against the Shipyard, Mine, and Salvage Yard--while the Shipyard comes with naval threats they can't counter, their escape will be successful as the start chance is at 100%.
The mission rewards the junk item
and we've also datamined another junk item,
. Now we know what happens to all the untouched stacks of
in our bags.
Finally, since your followers have made their escape and you have dozens of follower tokens lying around, the
have been updated to increase either your follower's item level,
or your own
item level. This should be a good catch-up mechanism for alts at the start of Legion.
Overwatch In-Game Event
Overwatch is Blizzard's newest game, launching in May. We've already seen the publicity blitz begin though with the "Recall" cinematic for Winston, the Baby Winston plush, Overwatch Origins, and Tracer in Heroes of the Storm. It's not surprising that Overwatch will make its way to Warcraft with an in-game promotion in May:
So far it looks like there will be transmog items based off iconic armor and weapons (
