WoW Lunar

More in game holiday events!  There are quite a few this time of year, it’s a bit insane.  However, after the Winter Holidays and the calendar New Year celebrations, this one is smaller with fewer games participating.  Here are the events for the games I play.

WORLD OF WARCRAFT – Lunar Festival
February 1st – February 15th

The Lunar Festival is one of the more tame events within Azeroth, it’s a time of year where we celebrate and honor our ancestors. As with most holidays in WoW, it is another part of the Long Strange Trip meta achievement and completing all the Lunar achievements will get you the sweet title of “Elder”.

  • Elune’s Lantern


  • Large Cluster Rocket
  • Festival Dress
  • Festival Suit

As has been the trend for the better part of the past year, every time there is a holiday event in World of Warcraft, HoTS does there own version.
