Something is in the air in the major cities of Azeroth. Amorous guards and lovestruck townsfolk are spending their days giving and receiving gifts—but something’s suspicious about this sudden outburst of affection. . .
Take a deep breath. Smell that? That’s the undiluted smell of love right there. Don’t mind the fel undertones intermingling with it. Light with a hint of armor oil and mana notes, maybe just a touch of chemical (we’re mostly sure it won’t burn) . . . it’s bound to lead to good things this holiday.

Just a Little Crush
The !Crushing the Crown questline has been updated and is available for all characters levels 20-110 along with a new quest !Follow the Recipe which is available as a daily. It’s up to you to put a stop to the pernicious Crown Chemical Co. once more.
Heart Shaped Box (For Weeks!)
Hey! Wait! If you defeat the undead apothecaries (we’re looking at you Apothecary Hummel), there’s a Heart-Shaped Box in it for you. Now available to all players from levels 16-110, you may just find yourself grouped with other players of varying levels. If you can queue for Shadowfang Keep, you’ll be able to take on the Crown Chemical Co. On completion, you’ll receive level-appropriate loot and may even score the infamous Big Love Rocket (this year for sure!). Just join the queue within the Dungeon Finder queue each day during the event to try for yours.
Justify Your Love
Nothing says love like killing monsters and digging through their entrails for Lovely Charms. Use them to create Lovely Charm Bracelets that you can give to a friend, or perhaps your favorite faction leader, to show you really care!
