During the Harvest Festival of Azeroth, the Horde and the Alliance give thanks to heroes for the sacrifices - in some cases ultimate sacrifices - they have given on our behalf. In the time of the Harvest Festival, a great buffet is built up outside of Ironforge and Orgrimmar.

From Harvest Festival on the official site:

Throughout history, many have given their lives to aid their allies. Every year, members of the Horde and the Alliance set aside time to honor the memories of the fallen and to pay tribute to those whose memories are held most dear: Uther Lightbringer, for the Alliance, and Grom Hellscream, for the Horde. Heroes take time from their adventures to visit the graves of these two great leaders and to leave a tribute to them at the memorial. To show their respect, members of the Alliance light a candle at the Tomb of Uther Lightbringer in the Western Plaguelands. Members of the Horde show their respect to Grom Hellscream by leaving a bottle of spirits at the base of the Hellscream Memorial in Demon Fall Canyon in Ashenvale.

Details Edit

Outside of Orgrimmar and Ironforge are a table and wandering ghostly NPCs of the corresponding faction, fallen heroes, who can be waved or cheered at, saluted and bowed before.

The following items can be picked up from the table:

These foods can be fed by hunters to their pets, providing an easy and free way to maintain the pet's happiness.

Currently, there are no Achievements for the holiday to be unlocked (but eating & drinking the items above counts towards Money achievement Tastes Like Chicken & Money achievement It's Happy Hour Somewhere).

Quests Edit

Harvest fest

Honoring Uther at his grave

Rewards: [For the Light!]

Rewards: [The Horde's Hellscream]

Additionally, 2 days later after completing either quest, the player gets [Bounty of the Harvest] in the mail. It is an item with a 12 hour cooldown which produces 4 food from the harvest.

Notes Edit

It is likely that, similar to Lunar Festival, Harvest Festival is an in-game event corresponding to harvest festivals in East Asia, such as the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival and the Korean Chuseok as the dates generally coincide

    • 2006: October 6
    • 2007: September 25
    • 2008: September 14
    • 2009: September 27
    • 2010: September 16
    • 2011: September 6
  • In 2007, these quests were not available to Blood Elves or Draenei.
  • Coincides with the anniversary of Stress Test Beta Has Ended. The final day is Columbus Day in the United States and Thanksgiving Day in Canada (October 8th in 2007).
