Update from March 13:
While there were delays on the Oceanic WoW servers due to a bug, the first Battleground Holiday on our realms started on time this night. For the next four days, you can earn extra honor and reputation in Warsong Gulch. During this time, additional emissaries of the corresponding faction will be standing around in the capitals, where you can sign up for the Battleground.

Original news from March 10:
You've probably noticed: Even though Phase 4 of WoW (buy now 14,99 € ) Classic will not officially start until April, the developers at Blizzard are already expanding the Battleground offer from March 11 at 23:00 with the 15vs15 Conquest map Arathi Basin. From that point on, all characters level 20 and above can join the queue.

  • Alliance players can find the Covenant of Arathor faction in the Refuge in Arathi Highlands. Samuel Hawke is the supply officer for the Covenant of Arathor. He is located in the city near the entrance to the battlefield.
  • Horde players will find the Desecrated faction in the city of Hammerfall in the Arathi Highlands. Rutherford Twing is the supply officer. He is located north of the city near the entrance to the battlefield.

Later that same week, Battlefield holidays will be introduced. During the holidays, you can earn additional honor as well as additional reputation on a specific battleground. In the official WoW forum, Community Manager Kaivax has now revealed the specific dates for the holidays:

  • Warsong Gulch: from March 13, April 10, May 08, June 05 and so on.
  • Arathi Basin: from 20 March, 17 April, 15 May, 12 June and so on
  • Alterac Valley: from 03 April, 01 May, 29 May, 26 June and so on

The holidays always start at 0:01 server time and last for four days.


reputation rewards of the Arathi Basin factions can be found in our special WoW Classic: All info on PvP, honor system and battlegrounds.
