Battle for Azeroth: Island Expeditions Showcase
Visitors will be able to try out one of the new features from Battle for Azeroth, Island Expeditions. Team up with two other players and venture to an uncharted island in search of Azerite—but beware; you’re not alone! NPCs from the other faction will be there trying to beat you to the plunder.
Visitors also have the option to play through the Siege of Lordaeron event that kick-starts Battle for Azeroth.
Stop by the Darkmoon Faire area for some fun-faire themed fun! Mount-up for your photo opportunity on top of a lifesize X-53 Touring Rocket, show your faction pride with a selection of airbursh make-up designs, and get your fortune read at the Fortune Teller’s booth – the most fortunate may even win a prize!
