It’s another month in World of Warcraft, and along with the new weekly events, there is a whole new set of items available at the Trading Post.
This month’s theme revolves around the sands of time, with a Time-Lost Salamanther pet, an Armored Golden Pterrodax mount, and a Jeweled Copper Scarab mount. Transmog items follow the same desert/wastewander theme, with a gold and beige color scheme prevalent throughout.
The bonus reward this month is a wristwatch, the Golden Mobile Timepiece, another nod to time travel in WoW.
There’s another new reward now available to those who have earned the bonus reward 12 months in a row: a Burden of Unrelenting Justice transmog set, which features nine pieces of color-shifting gear in a day and a night color scheme. If you haven’t earned 12 bonus rewards yet, don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get this set whenever you do.
Don’t forget that you can freeze an item to save it for future purchase!
Time is on your side with this month’s signature item—the Golden Mobile Timepiece transmog.
Visit T&W** (Tawney and Wilder) just outside the Mage District in Stormwind or the Zen’shiri Trading Post next to Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar to check out all the latest items*** they have available.
Ride the Final Surge to the Finish
This month, new activities are available to help players catch up on their activity bar. These events will begin one week before the end of the month.

Get the Burden of Unrelenting Justice Transmog Sets
It’s been nearly a year since T&W (Tawney and Wilder) and the Zen’shiri Trading Post have been supplying a variety of delightful mounts, pets, toys, and transmogs to the citizens of Azeroth. To celebrate, players who have earned the monthly special reward from the trading Post twelve times will be rewarded with a new achievement, “Trading Post Enthusiast” along with a new color-shifting transmog — the Burden of Unrelenting Justice transmog set.
With the release of the Seeds of Renewal content update, players who complete the twelve months will also receive two non-color-shifting sets representing the day and night version of the color-shifting transmog for a total of three sets retroactively. Players who earn the achievement after the launch of the Seeds of Renewal Content update will automatically receive all three sets for their collection.
Don’t worry if January isn’t your month and you come up a little short. You don’t need to earn the special reward twelve times consecutively to get the achievement and the transmog sets.
How it Works
Get Tender Every Month
At the first of each month, players with an active account in good standing will receive 500 Trader’s Tender automatically every month from a chest called the Collector’s Cache. If you don’t have active game time on your account or aren’t a subscriber at the start of a new month, don’t worry. Your Tender will be awarded on the first day of the month when you do have game time or an active subscription. This will be the same amount for everyone, regardless of how you pay for your game time.
The Traveler’s Log
Complete monthly activities listed in the new Traveler’s Log. Each month features a rotating, themed set of activities. These activities provide the opportunity to earn up to 500 additional Trader’s Tender. There’s only a set amount of Tender you can earn each month through completing activities, so you won’t need to complete all the ones in the log each month. You’ll be able to pick and choose from a variety of fun in-game activities to easily earn Tender. Players can choose to earn by continuing to play the game as they already do, such as completing quests, competing in battlegrounds, participating in holiday activities, and even running Mythic+ dungeons. But you can also choose to take part in activities uniquely designed for the month.
Freeze an Item
Before the month comes to an end, if you haven’t purchased that one “must-have” item yet, don’t worry. You can “freeze” an item so you can purchase it later. When you freeze an item, it will stay available month over month until it is purchased or replaced.
If this month’s offerings didn’t have the items you wanted, you can hang on to your Trader’s Tender to spend later. It won’t go anywhere, and unspent Tender will continue to accumulate each month.
