May is ahead of us and Blizzard published a list of events that await us in Azeroth in the upcoming month.
Don't forget to check out our "This Week in WoW" series (published every Tueday), where we preview all events in more detail on a weekly basis!
Time flies when you’re fighting the Burning Legion! May is already looming over us, much like the Sentinax looms over the Broken Shore. Despite the long shadow cast by this Legion ship, Azeroth’s champions fight on—and there are still bright moments ahead. Keep an eye on your in-game calendar for exact start and end times of the many events this month so you don’t miss a thing!
In Game Events
Children's Week (May 1 - 8)
Show an orphan what the hero’s life is like! Visit Orphan Matron Nightingale in Orgrimmar, Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath, or Orphan Matron Aria in Dalaran and make a child’s dream come true.
Battleground Bonus Event (May 2 - 8)
While this event is active, random Battlegrounds will award Honor at an increased rate. Glory awaits in the fields of battle!
PvP Brawl: Warsong Scramble (May 2 - 8)
Do you have a flag? Warsong Gulch has always been the scene of an epic capture-the-flag battle, but what happens when you can capture your enemy’s flag without having your own at your base? Find out when you step into this PvP Brawl! We’ve also added a few more power-ups to the field of battle to stir things up a bit. To win, your team will need to be the first to capture five flags.
Darkmoon Faire (May 7 - 13)
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!
Legion Dungeon Event (May 9 - 15)
While this event is active, the final boss of each Legion dungeon awards an extra item when defeated.
Spring Balloon Festival (May 10 - 12)

PvP Brawl: Deepwind Dunk (May 16-22)
Can you even dunk? If you want to win this Brawl, you’re going to need to work on your skills because Dunkball has come to Pandaria. You’ll race to claim balls from the map’s center, or northern, or southern mines, take them to your enemy’s base, and then go for a magnificent long range shot or go all in for the dunk.
Cataclysm Timewalking Dungeon Event (May 23 - 29)
While this event is active, players level 86 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players and their items down to revisit past dungeons from the Cataclysm expansion. While Timewalking bosses will yield loot appropriate for a player’s regular level.

Today, the sporelings of Sporeggar in Zangarmarsh hold their annual mushroom festival. Help them keep the great Fshoo alive as long as possible!
