World of Warcraft news » This Month in WoW®: November 2017
Prepare your appetite for a cornucopia of events this month–BlizzCon 2017, Pilgrim’s Bounty, and World of Warcraft’s 13-year Anniversary are all ahead.
Day of the Dead
During the Day of the Dead, people gather in graveyards to celebrate with and cherish the spirits of those they have lost.
Meet Silas Darkmoon and his troupe, play games that test mind and nerve, and behold exotic sights from the four corners of Azeroth and beyond!
Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking
While this event is active, players level 81 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players and their items down to revisit past dungeons from the Wrath of the Lich King expansions. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate to a player’s regular level.
A wonderful celebration of all things Moonkin is happening today in Moonglade. Stop by and see what you can learn!
Battleground Bonus Event
While this event is active, random Battlegrounds will award Honor at an increased rate. Glory awaits in the fields of battle!
PvP Brawl: Deep Six
Deep Six pits teams of six players against each other in three iconic Battlegrounds: Warsong Gulch, Silvershard Mines, and Temple of Kotmogu. Each Battleground offers a little variation on the traditional format, such as flags that are a bit closer in Warsong Gulch, fewer carts to keep track of in Silvershard Mines, and only two orbs within the Temple of Kotmogu.
WoW’s 13th Anniversary

We’re bringing back some familiar foes–with some slightly updated abilities–to Azeroth too. Many thanks from the WoW Dev team for enjoying the world of Azeroth and beyond with us!
Pilgrim’s Bounty is a time to reflect upon one’s good fortune and share with all around you.
Legion Dungeon Event
While this event is active, the final boss of each Legion dungeon awards an extra item when defeated.
Pet Battle Bonus Event
[November 29–December 6]
While this event is active, your pets will earn experience at triple the usual rate! Get out there and battle!

[November 29–December 6]
Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow.
