Children's Week, also known as Week of the Wardens[1], is celebrated by both the Horde and Alliance in Orgrimmar and Stormwind City. At the beginning of May, and lasting for a week, it is a time for heroes of both sides to give back to the innocents of war...the orphans!

Children's Week is also held for both factions in Shattrath City and Dalaran for higher level characters.

Many Azerothian holidays are based off real-life counterparts. Children's Week generally occurs in early May, and is likely based off of Japan's Children's Day which is held on May 5th.

Northrend's Children Week was added in patch 3.2.

Schedule 2014: It will begin April 28th and end May 5th.

Greetings, all.

We are presently aware of an issue which is preventing players from completing the quests Little Orphan Roo Of The Oracles and Little Orphan Kekek Of The Wolvar if they completed either quest last year. While we do not have any specific details to provide in regards to when this issue will be resolved, we will keep you updated with the latest information as it becomes available.

Thank you for your patience.

To clarify, this issue won't be able to be resolved for Children's Week this year. If you completed the quest previously you won't be able to complete it again for the other pet this year.

Achievements

The orphan's week event is tied to several achievements.

Inv misc toy 04 [For The Children] is the meta-achievement. Inv misc toy 01 [Veteran Nanny] is associated with Children's Week, but since it requires completing the orphan quests in 3 different years, it is not part of the meta-achievement.

Players must be level 77 to complete Achievement boss kingymiron 02 [Hail To The King, Baby] (minimum level to zone in on the Dungeon Finder) and Inv misc food 31 [Bad Example] (minimum level is 75 to eat some of the foods sold by aimee in Dalaran ).

Notes

Papa hummel orphan effects

Effect of Papa Hummel's Old-Fashioned Pet Biscuit on the Blood Elf and Orc Orphans

  • This quest set is extremely easy, considering the amount of reputation you receive.
  • The Outland and Azeroth quests are separate from each other, and both can be completed in the given week.
  • Papa Hummel's Old-Fashioned Pet Biscuit is usable on the orphans.
  • In order to complete the achievements after finishing the quest chains, you will need to ask the matron for another whistle.
    • The whistles will last for seven days, after which they will disappear. Although the achievements only specify needing your orphan out to complete the criteria, you will only be able to earn credit for them during the event.

Patch changes

  • Mists-Logo-Small β Patch 5.0.1 (Beta): [Cooking School Bell] hints at pandaren? orphan questline.
  • Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.1.0 (26-Apr-2011): Stormwind and Orgrimmar quest lines completely changed;Legs added as an Outland chain reward.
  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.2.0 (04-Aug-2009): Wolvar and Gorloc orphans have arrived in Dalaran and need your help! Players can find out more by visiting the Eventide District (completing the quests being offered for this event will not count toward any Children's Week achievements). Players have a limited amount of time to care for these orphans before they take their leave. They will then return again for the regularly-scheduled Children's Week next year.
