With the release of Phase 2 of Season of Discovery just a few days ago, the number of events in the game has gone up. To help you keep track, here’s everything that is going on in the game this week!

Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire can be found in Elwynn Forest now through February 18th. Head over there to get your Sayge buff, and don’t forget to put it in a Chronoboon!

Holiday Events

Don’t forget there are two holiday events currently happening in the game!

The Lunar Festival is active through February 17th. Find and honor the Elders in each zone to earn some special rewards, including a few vanity items and some Elder’s Moonstones, which can be nice to have for marking locations in the world (or just for fun).

Love is in the Air will last through February 16th. Put on your best Perfume or Cologne and flirt with the guards to get your hands on some Box of Chocolates, which are soulbound and will give you a variety of buffs. There are also some fun vanity rewards to be had from this event.

Raid Lockouts

The new Gnomeregan raid is on a one-week lockout schedule for the first two weeks to give players more time to level. It will reset for the first time tomorrow. The next reset will be next Tuesday, after which it will revert to a 3-day lockout. Here are those dates:

  • Tuesday, February 13th
  • Tuesday, February 20th
  • Friday, February 23rd

The Blackfathom Deeps raid remains on a 3-day lockout, and the experience you get from bosses has been increased substantially, making it well worth the effort of getting a group together while leveling. Here are the reset days this week:

  • Tuesday, February 13th
  • Friday, February 16th
  • Monday, February 19th
