Inside Azeroth: January 2018
January 2nd by Blizzard Entertainment

The people of Azeroth have survived to fight another day. While the stench of fel still hangs in the air, the cosmic shifts in the skies above Azeroth suggest things seem to be looking up.

But there’s still much more to be done—and as we ring in the new year, it’s time once again to make a few resolutions. Will you vow to gain more achievements? Take your Mythic Keystone difficulty to new heights? Fish all the fish of Azeroth? Or will you simply vow to be a better citizen of the world, with good will in your heart for everyone (except the opposite faction, of course).

After you’ve looked at what’s ahead this month, share your WoW resolution for 2018 with us in the comments below.

It may be a new year, but the fight against the Burning Legion continues on Argus and in the latest raid dungeon, Antorus, the Burning Throne.
