Micro-Holiday Schedule 2017

Patch 7.1.5 will introduce Micro-Holidays to the World of Warcraft and Blizzard has now released the schedule for the upcoming year.

The PTR build is already flagged as Release Candidate, so it looks like we will be able to celebrate Call of the Scarab at the end of January on the live servers.

January 21-23: Call of the Scarab
To commemorate the first ringing of the Scarab Gong on January 23, 2006, players will be able to relive a portion of the Ahn’Qiraj gate opening by collecting items for turn-in. The winning faction will then be able to claim bragging rights and have their faction flag hang over the gates until the next Call of the Scarab micro-holiday event.

February 23: Hatching of the Hippogryphs
Those who head to Feralas will be able to bear witness to the yearly hatching of the hippogryphs. You may even make a little friend for the day.

April 5: March of the Tadpoles
Each year, the Winterfin murlocs allow their tadpoles free reign over their village. You can make a difference by adopting your favorite, feeding it, and protecting it from nearby predators.

April 28: Volunteer Guard Day
Step into the shoes of a guard in the major cities with a /salute and you’ll get to serve and protect the city just like them. Stay vigilant and watch out for any invaders.

May 10-12: Spring Balloon Festival
Several of Azeroth’s characters – some of whom you might recognize – are giving tours of Azeroth in their hot air balloons. You’ll enjoy their commentary and interact with other citizens as you take in the scenery.

May 27: Glowcap Festival
Head to Sporeggar in Zangarmarsh, collect some rare mushrooms, and help the sporelings heal the great mushroom, Fshoo. You’ll gain a bit of Sporeggar reputation for helping them out.

June 6-8: Thousand Boat Bash
Thousand Needles is where the biggest bash on boats can be found in Azeroth. It’s a chance to unwind a little, away from the lurking danger of the Burning Legion.

August 10-12: Un’goro Madness
Dinosaurs are running amok in Un’Goro. Help quell the rampage and you’ll be awarded some temporary evolution buffs.
