World of Warcraft news » A Many Splendored Thing: Love Is in the Air Begins February 8!
Something is in the air in the major cities of Azeroth. Many guards and townsfolk spend their days giving and receiving gifts to other amorous citizens.
Sounds and fragrances swirl through the Azerothian air with the undiluted smell of love. Light with a hint of armor oil and mana notes, there’s just a hint of chemical top notes and a slight undercurrent of charm… or is that just conspiracy?
When: February 8–21
Where: Orgrimmar (Horde) and Stormwind (Alliance)
