Step into the light!

Every year, the druids of Moonglade hold a celebration of their city's great triumph over an ancient evil. During the Lunar Festival, citizens of Azeroth have the opportunity to honor their elders by celebrating their sage wisdom, sharing in magnificent feasts, and (of course) shooting fireworks!

The Lunar Festival is a time of celebration for the peoples of Azeroth. They gather to acknowledge their triumph of ages ago, when an alliance of Azerothian races (Night Elves, Tauren, and the proto-dwarven Earthen) defeated the Burning Legion.


Seasonal Boss: Omen

An embodiment of strength and fortune, the great wolf Omen fought beside the heroes of the War of the Ancients until he succumbed to demonic magics. Turning against his allies, he raged across Azeroth, leaving death and terror in his wake.

Omen was finally defeated in Moonglade, and he now sleeps among the silt of Lake Elune'ara. But each year, at the beginning of the festival, he stirs... Heroes of maximum level must make haste to ease this tormented Ancient’s suffering, in the hopes that perhaps next year he will return with a clearer mind.


During the Lunar Festival, you will have the opportunity to honor your elders; in doing so, you’ll also honor their culture and people. Those who show their elders respect will be rewarded with Coins of Ancestry, Lucky Red Envelopes, faction-wide reputation, and gold.



The innovative and artistic engineers of Undermine have been slaving away since their display of pyrotechnics in July. Their latest and greatest — not to mention highly dangerous — creations will be on display in the cities of the world every hour after sunset. Keep your eyes to the skies, and be sure to stick around for the finale!
