The Harvest Festival is celebrated by both the Horde and the Alliance as a time to commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives to help their allies. The Alliance honors the memory of all the fallen, but particularly Uther Lightbringer. The Horde also remembers those who have fallen, with special emphasis on the memory of Grom Hellscream.
When: September 13 - 19th
- Alliance: Ironforge, Tomb of Uther Lightbringer in the Western Plaguelands
- Horde: Orgrimmar, Hellscream Memorial in Demon Fall Canyon in Ashenvale.
Activities: Honoring A HEro
Throughout history, many have given their lives to aid their comrades. Every year, members of the Horde and the Alliance set aside time to honor the memories of the fallen and to pay tribute to those whose memories are held most dear.
To show their respect, members of the Alliance light a candle at the Tomb of Uther Lightbringer in the Western Plaguelands. Members of the Horde show their respect to Grom Hellscream by leaving a bottle of spirits at the Hellscream Memorial in Ashenvale.
Throughout the festival, remembrance feasts will be held outside of Ironforge and Orgrimmar. Adventurers are invited to partake of the feasts to be strengthened for challenges to come in the future. Available foods include:
- After you complete your journey to your hero's tomb and have left a tribute to his memory, return to Javnir Nashak outside of Orgrimmar or to Wagner Hammerstrike outside of Ironforge in order to receive your reward: The Horde's Hellscream or For the Light!
