New World of Warcraft Short Story: The Untamed Valley

In Pandaria’s Valley of the Four Winds, modest farmers have worked the land for generations. They are the true backbone of Pandaren society, feeding an empire with an honest day’s work...scant preparation for war.

Though Garrosh Hellscream has been defeated, the flames of his hatred still rage in the hearts of his followers. When the worst of these descend on Pandaria, closely followed by Alliance heroes Maraad and Lyalia, the humble Tillers find their farms transformed into battlefields.

The Tillers are committed to their homes and the earth they cultivate, but will they give up their lives to protect them? Worse, will they give up their lives for nothing?

The answer is in the 7th Pandaria faction story, “The Untamed Valley,” written by Robert Brooks. It’s available now on the Destination: Pandaria site as a free download. Enjoy!

Make-A-Wish® Charity Pet: Thank You!

Thanks to the epic outpouring of generosity from World of Warcraft players around the world who purchased an Alterac Brew Pup pet, we’ve raised $1 million to benefit Make-A-Wish in their continuing efforts to grant the wishes of children throughout the world with life-threatening medical conditions.

Last November, we announced that 50% of the Alterac Brew Pup’s $10 purchase price would be donated to Make-A-Wish, and the WoW community rushed in to lend their support. Thanks again for helping to make a difference in the lives of children.

Carbot Animations Premieres WoWcraft!

Carbot Animations has been bringing the StarCraft II community funny and brilliantly animated StarCrafts shorts for two seasons now, and the third has just begun. They also created a fitting tribute to Heroes of the Storm for BlizzCon, and most recently cast a hilarious shadow on the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls cinematic.

Carbot is now turning its genius for animated physical comedy to World of Warcraft with the very first episode of WoWcraft!

  • Mammoths on Parade
    There is nothing quite like a mammoth parade– the rumble of heavy feet stamping the ground in stolid purpose, shaggy dust stained coats swaying to and fro with every movement, shining tusks jutting out in defiance of any who would dare cross their path.

Mammoths on Parade

There is nothing quite like a mammoth parade– the rumble of heavy feet stamping the ground in stolid purpose, shaggy dust stained coats swaying to and fro with every movement, shining tusks jutting out in defiance of any who would dare cross their path. No one knows the power of these grand beasts quite like Horde guild Violent Apathy of Bleeding Hollow. Being the neighborly sort they are– they occasionally take time out of their busy day to visit their Alliance neighbors within the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Their march begins within the halls of the Shrine of Two Moons and ends within the Shrine of Seven Stars. Once at their destination, they share a little gift some like to call world PvP.
