Fulfill your postal fantasies in World of Warcraft’s secret quest chain
Blizzard has a habit of sneaking in semi-secret content into its patches for the community to discover, and this time around, it’s all about mail. Snail mail, that is. In a video game.
World of Warcraft’s Patch 7.3.5 contained a world-spanning hidden quest chain that involves the postal service, and it has players buzzing over it. By picking up a piece of lost mail in Dalaran (or buying it on the auction house if you’re lazy), players are called into service under the town’s postmaster to help sort and deliver mail all over the place. The quest uses a sorting minigame and the actual in-game mail to proceed, so there’s a meta element involved as well.
With the return of Johnny Awesome and special rewards like titles, a summonable mail carrier, a pet, and an heirloom upgrade, it’s a fairly worthwhile quest chain to complete. Plus, it’s something to take your mind off of the endless Legion invasions and world quest grind, so why not?
