It’s time for the annual harvest festival in World of Warcraft. Harvest festivals, of course, are a time when everyone comes together as a community, pulls crops out of the ground, and celebrates the bounty of the harvest with their neighbors. At least, in the real world. In WoW that’s apparently when everyone pays tribute to dead people. That’s… a little odd, but everyone has their own traditions.
Players who which to participate will need to head out to the Tomb of Uther on Alliance side or Hellscream Memorial on Horde side to pay tribute to each faction’s particular fallen hero figure. Pay your respects over the next week, and that’s it; it’s not a part of the larger holiday meta-achievement, just a part of the world. And if you’re wondering how this ties into harvesting crops and celebrating same, well, you’re not alone.
You can also check out the preview stream of the next patch later today, although given that “harvest festival” means nothing we can’t be sure “content update” doesn’t mean something strange.
