April showers might bring May flowers, but it also brings with it a great many things to do within World of Warcraft. Make sure you keep an eye on your in-game calendar for exact start and end times so you don’t miss a thing!
Darkmoon Faire: April 2–April 8
The Darkmoon Faire is open for business once more! Meet Silas Darkmoon and his troupe, play games that test mind and the nerve, and behold exotic sights from the four corners of Azeroth . . . and beyond!
March of the Tadpoles Micro Holiday: April 5
Today, the baby Winterfin murlocs of Borean Tundra complete their trip across the Westrift. This event lasts one day only so don’t miss out on the fun!
PvP Brawl—Frozen Arathi Basin: April 5-11
Great ready for cold weather in this week’s PvP Brawl. Enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. Put away your bathing suit and pull out your parka. You’ll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumber yard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a –mostly– frozen lake. One more thing, the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you’re prepared for the weather.
Burning Crusade Timewalking Dungeon Event: April 5-11
While this event is active, players level 71 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players and their times down to revisit past dungeons from The Burning Crusade expansion. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate for a players’ regular level.
Arena Skirmish Bonus Event: April 12- April 18
While this event is active, Arena Skirmishes will award Honor at an increased rate. Will you answer the call to battle?
Noblegarden: April 17- April 24
The feast of Noblegarden has arrived. The proving grounds of each race, the place where young heroes first test their strength, each holds cleverly hidden treasure eggs. How many can you find?
World Quest Bonus Event: April 19-April 25
While this event is active, completing Broken Isles World Quests awards bonus reputation with the appropriate faction.
PvP Brawl: Gravity Lapse: April 19-April 25
Gravity getting you down? Step into the Eye of the Storm and be prepared for a whole new en-lighten-ing experience. Every minute, players on the battlefield will find themselves launched into the air, only to gently fall toward the ground once more in a perpetual aerial ballet as they try to accrue enough resources to take the win home for their team.
Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking Dungeon Event: April 26- May 2
While this event is active, players level 81 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players and their items down to revisit past dungeons from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate for a player’s regular level.
Volunteer Guard Day Micro-Holiday: April 28
Today, the denizens of Azeroth and Draenor take some time to celebrate the hard work that their guards perform. /salute a guard to show you care!
Eye on Battle Pets —Do You Even Bunny Hop?
With Noblegarden occurring this month, it seemed like a good time to highlight some of the various rabbit or bunny types of pets that pet battlers can collect — including the newest addition the Noblegarden Bunny.
- Holiday: New Noblegarden Bunny
Noblegarden kicks off April 16, and you’ll be able to purchase a the new Noblegarden Bunny from the holiday vendor for 100 chocolate. It’s sure to match your holiday finery so get out there and collect those eggs!
- Dungeon Achievement: Hopling
Strange things are happening in the Stormstout Brewery, but to see some of those things, you’re going to need a little help from Ling-Ting’s Favorite Tea sold by Auntie Stormstout within the dungeon. Collect the golden hoplings tucked in the nooks and crannies of this dungeon and you’ll earn the Achievement Ling-Ting’s Herbal Journey and a new Hopling companion pet.
- Engineering: De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion
You’ll either need to be an Engineer to create the De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion (learned from Gnomish Engineering Trainers at 475) or you’ll need to make friends with one to add this high-tech companion to your collection. This is a great pet for those with allergies. No fur!
- Boss Fight: Darkmoon Rabbit
It looks so cute and fluffy, but don’t let the Darkmoon Rabbit fool you. You’re going to need to gather a Raid group and head to the Darkmoon Faire to take on this beast. If you’re lucky, you’ll gain a Darkmoon Rabbit for a companion.
- Spawn: Dust Bunny
It doesn’t have to be spring to do a little spring cleaning. Just click on the special rugs found around Dalaran to get the Spring Cleaning buff and then go do a little hunting for Dust Bunnies. You’ll need to do battle to catch them and your buff will only last for 15 minutes.
- Pet Battle: Black Lamb Alright, so it’s not a bunny, but we couldn’t resist throwing the Black Lamb into the mix. It’s spring after all and it’s so cute and fluffy! You’ll need to venture into Elwynn Forest to battle for one of these companions. (Good luck Horde players.)
