It's beginning to look a lot like autumn on World of Warcraft servers. Devs have announced the beginning of the annual Harvest Festival. This years festival is set to run through September 22nd. The festival is to honor those who have fallen to save an ally. Both Horde and Alliance celebrate the Harvest Festival. Special festival quests, tokens and rewards can be earned as well.
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.
