From now until August 15th, players from North America can sign up for the new WoW Variety Show that begins on the 24th. This event will be broadcasted live on Twitch, where players will be competing alongside four Celebrity contestants in 3 different activites:

  • Leveling Competition: Four Warcraft Celebrity Contestants will have an hour to level a fresh character as high as possible on a live server. Meanwhile, players will be able to interact with these contestants and help them with their leveling. The winning Contestant will receive digital goodies to distribute to their community.
  • Scavenger Hunt: 4 teams of 5 players, each led by one of the Warcraft Celebrity Contestants, will have one hour to complete a series of tasks throughout several zones. The team that either finishes all of the tasks first, or that completes the most tasks before the timer runs out, will receive digital awards from Blizzard.
  • Race Through Azeroth: Players will race through a series of check points, with no flying mounts, to reach the finish line.


  • Leveling Competition – 5:00 pm PST
  • Scavenger Hunt – 6:00 pm PST
