    Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday
    The Call of the Scarab holiday event remembers the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj world event from Vanilla. This event is an Alliance vs Horde showdown, with the victorious faction flying their faction banner for the next year.

    This year you will need to talk to Zidormi in Silithus to see the old version if you have killed Argus and can see the Wound in the World.

    The Call of the Scarab quest will send you to Silithus so that you know where the vendor and world quests are. From there you can complete quests and defeat bosses to earn Commendations for your faction. Whichever faction has the most Commendations at the end of the event wins.

    Cultist Camps

    World Quests
    There are several world quests associated with this event, all rewarding Commendations that contribute to your faction's total.

    Material Turn-In Quests
    These materials can be turned in to the NPCs near the banners to earn Commendations (Field Marshal Snowfall / Senior Sergeant Kai'jin).

    Mini-Boss Quests
    These quests are started by items dropped from the Wind Stone and Greater Wind Stone bosses at the Cultist Camps.

    These mounts only last for a few days and are bag slot items much like the Magic Broom from the Hallow's End Event.

    On January 23, 2006, a bloody war was triggered by a simple sound: the banging of a gong. No rallying fanfare, no bloodthirsty yell; just an eerie silence. Those long, uneasy seconds of dread. The calm before the storm.

    Standing shoulder-to-shoulder before the Scarab Wall, no one could have predicted what would happen—an epic ten-hour battle that claimed the lives of thousands of Azeroth’s bravest—or fully comprehended the effect it would have.

    Action First, Faction Second
    That’s not to say the battle at the gates of Ahn’Qiraj came as a surprise. When the menace of C’Thun turned into an urgent threat, leaders across the world pored over plans and forged unlikely connections as pressure mounted. Both factions knew war was coming and personal glory was a hubris no-one could risk. Any notion that one army could defeat General Rajaxx and his colossal battalion was soon abandoned as fantasy.

    It was a unique time: scattered armies with varying allegiances were thrown together and faction pride was put aside. Let’s be clear: the battle at Ahn’Qiraj was won purely on the principle “united we stand, divided we fall.”

    Warmongering vs. Gold Hungering
    This uneasy alliance was not without its critics. Some showed their disapproval by shunning the war effort altogether, but others expressed opposition through acts of aggression. Rogue elements on both sides, unwilling to stomach this perceived betrayal of their faction, did not sit idle. Just as neutral auction houses became a tool for factions to share resources, they also became virtual battlegrounds. Crucial resources were picked up for next-to-nothing and sold on for personal gain. As with all wars, those who profit aren’t always the brave.

    The sheer scale of that war effort is almost unimaginable when we live in a time of extended storage and fast mail. But back then, backpacks and cloth stacks were smaller. Getting precious resources gathered, sorted, and sent took many hours. And it took several weeks to source bandages, food, and equipment—resources that were in high demand and would soon dwindle.

    The Importance of Remembrance
    There are parallels with current events that are impossible to ignore: once more, we Azerothians stand united against the Burning Legion as they wreak havoc across the Broken Isles. We attempt to put aside a complex, bitter history in order to defeat a common enemy. We eye each other suspiciously, even as we fight side by side.

    We would do well, in these dark times, to remember the courage and spirit of those who were there at the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj. We must have long memories if we’re to make quick work of the demon forces we now face.

    From January 21–23 we ask that you join us as we remember the fallen and celebrate the victory. All of Azeroth are invited to a special holiday, ‘Call of the Scarab,’ where we will gather to perform acts of remembrance and share our factions’ pride.

    Azerite, for sure!

    This island is ripe with thermal activity. After a geyser plumes, azerite is sure to spill out of the fissures. This has got to be worth a fortune!

    Remember, control demands sacrifice. Power never comes without a price. You risk losing those closest to you in order to save them.
    This is the bargain we have made.
    < Alleria looks away. >

    With Alleria's teaching, we can avoid the fate suffered by those on Mac'Aree.

    We need no longer fear exile for the pursuit of knowledge.
    A path long denied to us is open at last.

    The voices never stop. They push, they bully, they plead. They will not relent, not even for a moment.
    But you are stronger than the voices. You can glean their secrets and draw upon their strength.

    We need no longer fear exile for the pursuit of knowledge.
    A path long denied to us is open at last.
    Be wary of unstable void rifts and their spawn. This place is not entirely safe.

    Pristine void energy is soaked into this space... Magnificent.
    The Voidstorm is growing. It might even consume the big island entirely.
    Unchecked void energies ravage the other islands. It remains too dangerous to navigate.

    The void energy released when the ethereals attacked left the other islands unstable. No one is allowed beyond this point.
    The last people who ventured beyond this space were consumed by the shadows.

    One portal, coming up!
    You have learned basic control. Mastery, however, can only be attained through practical application.

    Calm yourself and it will pass.
    Your emotions expose weakness. The Void will exploit that if you let it.
    Remain in control of your thoughts. The void cannot sway that which is immutable.
    What are you waiting for? Concentrate and banish this creature!

    Although broken and scattered, this rift holds many secrets. It will teach us much about the nature of the shadows.

    Studying this rift has value, but we cannot neglect our duty.
    Azeroth must be defended. Our place is out there, fighting for our world.
    The power that flows through us is a weapon. And weapons must be wielded.

    Locus-Walker is an intriguing fellow.
    Alleria seems to trust him... to a point.
    I think we can learn much from him, so long as we remain wary of his true intentions.

    The Light does not treat with the Void, elf. You should leave this place.
    This place is not meant for you.
    I can sense the shadow in you. Though it is diminished in the presence of the Light.
    Thank you, but I do not require your aid.
    Have you come to supplicate yourself before the Light? If you are here to speak with Archbishop Benedictus, I am sorry to inform you that he has left on a mission.
    I will help in whatever way I can, but I suggest you do not linger too long here.
    I commend your dedication. However, I fear you walk a dangerous path. You would best serve the Alliance away from the cathedral.
    Tread carefully, $c. Lady Alleria's name will only carry you so far.
    Perhaps is it as Alleria Windrunner says, and the whispers of shadow can be controlled. Be on your guard, friend, and may the Ligh--Hrm. Well... May fortune favor you.

    May the Light ever guide you, $n.

    I guess if the world's ending I might be able to figure somethin' out...

    Looking for a lift? Going someplace special I hope!
    I need a flight to Staghelm Point.
    All our attention is focused on foiling the Horde's efforts. We can't spare resources to make this flight network fully functional.
    If you need to fly away from this wretched desert, you'll have to manage it yourself.
    Should you be facing a dire emergency, I suppose I could cobble together resources for a single flight...

    We have learned much from our fight against the Legion. In truth, these warframes are the culmination of many years of research.
    If you wish, I can train you to craft similar devices.

    Non-magical devices are for mana-starved whelps, they said. Non-magical devices serve no purpose, they said.
    Orgrimmar practically runs on such creations!
    Time for me to show those palanquin-addled wretches back home the perfection of machinery!

    I stood by and watched as Elisande led us astray. I was wrong... about everything.

    For now.
    I am afraid I cannot allow that.

    I really hated this tophat at first. What does a guy have to do for a good tricorne? But I must say... this fits real nicely on my skull.

    Sure hope the boss knows what he's doin'.

    What do I have to do to get myself out of this job? I try to leave, some orc picks me up and plops me right back down here.

    Downsized? I'm already about as downsized as you can get!
    Boss Mida says I'm bein' discharged. The only things that oughta be discharged are guns and explosives!
    I've been downwardly promoted.
    We're here as part of a "workforce adjustment."
    I used to have a cushy office job in Orgrimmar.
    My position has been eliminated... feels like early retirement.

    Thank you for taking my survey, $n.I shall present the petition after I have enough signatures. Good day to you, $r.

    Watch your step! I can't do this all day! Actually, I suppose I can.
    Are you conducting some kind of dangerous experiment? I like it!
    If you're going to fall to your death, do it somewher else.
    Mind the gap.

    Reader Discussion – What Are Your Thoughts On Nintendo Labo?

    By GameInformer,


    Nintendo had a surprise reveal earlier this week, showing off its cardboard-software hybrid Nintendo Labo. Oriented towards kids, Nintendo Labo requires players to assemble cardboard into different toys, such as a fishing rod or RC cars. Then, you can attach your Nintendo Switch to see these toys come to life.

    The announcement garnered a lot of attention and varied reactions on social media, and now we want to know what you think. Is Nintendo Labo something you would buy for yourself? For your child? Do you think it holds promise, or will kids easily rip it apart after only minutes of use?

    Let us know in the comments!

    Sony Partners With Nike To Introduce PlayStation-Themed Sneakers

    By GameInformer,


    Sony recently teamed up with NBA All-Star Paul George and Nike to create some slick-looking sneakers based off the PlayStation's design. The shoe, called the PG-2 PlayStation Colorway, looks pretty cool – whether you're a basketball fan or not.

    In a post on the PlayStation blog, Paul George calls the partnership between Nike and PlayStation a "long time coming," and that he's loved video games since he was young. "Just like basketball, I’ve had a knack for video games since I was a kid. When I was 8 or 9, I used to amaze my uncle and all his friends by consistently beating them in all the sports games we’d play."

    (Please visit the site to view this media)

    The sneaker's design includes lights on the tongue of the shoe that illuminate and pulsate to show both the PG and PlayStation logo. On the heel, you can find a PSN voucher code, which gives you a Paul George dynamic theme for PS4 when redeemed on the store. Even the holes for the laces pay homage to PlayStation, with DualShock-themed colors.

    The sneakers are available for purchase as of February 10. No price has been announced just yet.

    Final Fantasy XIV: Rise Of A New Sun Update Arrives Later This Month

    By GameInformer,


    Final Fantasy XIV is receiving a slew of new content later this month thanks to the upcoming 4.2 update, Rise of a New Sun. Square Enix recently gave more details on what we can expect from the update, and released a new trailer.

    The teaser, which you can watch below, showcases the forthcoming update and has several callbacks to the SNES classic, Final Fantasy VI. For example, the Phantom Train makes on appearance at the beginning of the video and antagonist Kefka appears briefly at the end.

    Rise of a New Sun features the next arc in the Omega raid series, a new trial featuring one of the Four Lords, two new dungeons (Hell's Lid and The Fractal Continuum in hard mode), and several new mounts. You can check out Square Enix's dedicated site to the update for a more detailed breakdown, by heading here.

    Rise of a New Sun releases for Final Fantasy XIV on PlayStation 4 and PC as of January 30. Last year, Netflix released a Japanese drama called Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light which follows a father and son who bond over the MMO. You can read our impressions of the show here.

    Watch How Skipping Key Items Affects Ocarina Of Time In This Video

    By GameInformer,


    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was a landmark game for its time, but still functioned the way other Zelda games did, with a mostly linear structure with some spokes for side quests. Breath of the Wild broke this mold by letter players skip many parts of the base game and play how they wanted. But what if someone tried to play the former Zelda game like they would the latter?

    Youtuber Shesez tries to find out in his latest episode of Sequence Break, which uses glitches and other methods to circumvent the rigid design of games and see what happens. In this episode, Shesez finds out what happens if you don't get the Ocarina for Saria before you have to play your first song, how essential the first three dungeons are in finishing are to finishing the game, and what happens with young and adult Link swap places in cutscenes.
