Hello, and welcome back to WoW History, where we look back at major events that happened in the game's past, and remember the fond memories we might have had back then.
Ready for another trip down memory lane?
September 6th, 2016 - Legion Companion App Launch
One of the most revolutionary events in the history of WoW, today marks one year of the launch of the
Legion Companion App!
With this app, you can complete Class Hall Missions, manage Class Hall resources such as active Followers, Champion equipments, Class Order Advancements, and check what Draenor and Argus world quests are active, while you're away from your computer!

September 6th and 9th, 2016
On these days, players discovered that Legion is not your typical expansion and it's full of secrets, finding out the world boss
Kosumoth der Hungernde
and the long awaited
Zügel des lang vergessenen Hippogryphen
! This community banded together, eventually forming the
WoW General Secret Finding
is considered the
Zügel des zeitverlorenen Protodrachen
of Legion, a mount that is excessively hard to find. This time, instead of having to camp specific spots for hours on end, players interested in the mount would find and click several crystals scattered across Azsuna to obtain this mount.
Kosumoth the Hungering
is the first real secret in Legion! By searching a series of dark orbs scattered around the dark places of Broken Shore, players eventually attune themselves to the Eye of Azshara zone, allowing them to see and withstand Kosumoth's dark attacks via

Other Legion secret items that would be discovered through the expansion are the
Gedankenwurm des Rätselmeisters

September 4th, 2014
gains a memorial for him in WoW. His death, back in 2014, certainly shook the world, and it wasn't different for Blizzard, who created the tribute NPC
, in his memory. Robin can be found on the coast between Talador and Nagrand in Draenor, by rubbing the
Ewig brennende Lampe
. Robin is a djinn that displays his amazing powers before complaining about how he lives in such a small lamp, mirroring the Genie's introduction in the movie
, which was voiced by Robin Williams himself.
The island with the Ever-Burning Lamp also contains other references to Robin Williams' work, such as a broken egg with an engine in it, a clear reference to the sitcom
Mork & Mindy
, and toys are also scattered, a reference to the movie
, both starred by the man himself.
Rest in peace, Robin Williams!

September 10th, 2013 - Siege of Orgrimmar Released
Patch 5.4 is released! This is the patch that released the raid
Schlacht um Orgrimmar
, and the last major content patch for Mists of Pandaria. Highlights include:
New Raid: Siege of Orgrimmar
: The tensions brought by Garrosh Hellscream's arrogance have reached it's climax with the devastation he unleashed in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, and now the Horde and Alliance must lay siege to Hellscream's capital, to topple the ruthless warchief once and for all.
The first implementation of flexible raids, a raid that dynamically changes in difficulty depending on how many players you have in the raid, happened here. Siege of Orgrimmar had a Flexible difficulty that allowed people to bring from 10 to 25 players, and have the raid be appropriately scaled for them. The system eventually evolved to what we have today, with flexible raids being a thing for all difficulties but Mythic.
A island lost in time, Timeless Island is a new zone that emerged far off the coast of the Jade Forest. The island worked as a new quest hub with plenty of secrets and catch-up mechanics for alts, five World Bosses (
and the Four Celestials), and many rares for explorers!
This patch also marked the first implementation of Vignettes, mini-map indicators for events such as rares or chests near you!
A new feature where seasoned players can test their skills in challenges specifically tailored for their specialization in a safe, controlled environment.

Operation: Gnomeregan and Echo Isles: Zalazane's Fall begins!
As part of the pre-Cataclysm events, players undertake events for their factions to help them claim prime areas. Those were temporary events that went away with the release of Cataclysm.
In Operation: Gnomeregan, the Alliance helped High Tinker Mekkatorque, the leader of the Gnomes, bolster their race and take back Gnomeregan from the hands of Mekginner Thermaplugg. Alliance players who participated in the effort got the Feat of Strength
Stolz von Gnomeregan
Horde players helped Vol'jin defeat the betrayer Zalazane and retake the Echo Isles, on the coast of Durotar, as their home once and for all. Horde players who participated in the effort got the Feat of Strength
Stolz der Dunkelspeere

Make Love, not Warcraft wins an Emmy!
The South Park episode that pays homage to WoW, Make Love, Not Warcraft, won an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program (One Hour), dethroning series such as Spongebob Squarepants and Avatar: The Last Airbender.
For those who never seen this episode, the four boys have an adventure inside World of Warcraft, their favorite online roleplaying game, as they face a mean, high-levelled ganker. The episode featured heavy use of Machinima to create a live world for the protagonists, and generated memes such as "How do you kill that which has no life" and even got an in-game homage, in the form of
Töter der Leblosen
! The sword was heavily featured as a plot device for the episode, and later added into the game.
You can watch the full episode over at the South Park Studios website. Warning, viewer discretion is advised!
Can you imagine if we had a similar phone app back in Warlords and Draenor, with Garrisons? Or did you watch Make Love, Not Warcraft when it first aired? Let us know in the comments!
Thank you so much and enjoy Argus!
