It’s an absolutely packed week in retail World of Warcraft, with two holiday events now live in the game as well as two weekly bonus events and more!

The Lunar Festival and Love is in the Air holiday events are both currently active in the game, with the Lunar Festival running through the 17th and Love is in the Air going through the 19th. The Darkmoon Faire is also back through February 10th. Between these three events alone there are plenty of limited-time achievements and rewards to be earned.

There are also two weekly bonus events currently active in the game: a Battleground Bonus Event and a Pet Battle Bonus Event. Speak with Kazra in Valdrakken or check your Adventure Guide for weekly quests for these events. You’ll also see passive buffs associated with each, increasing your Honor gains from Battlegrounds by 50% and experience gains from Pet Battles by 100%.

This week’s PvP Brawl is Packed House, a 15v15 arena battle.

Also happening this week is the launch of Phase 2 for WoW Classic: Season of Discovery on Thursday. Tomorrow we should also get an early look at some of the new Hero Talents for The War Within.
