Am heutigen Samstag, den 21. Januar 2017, haben die Mitarbeiter von Blizzard Entertainment mit “Ruf des Skarabäus” den Ersten der mit Patch 7.1.5 in World of Warcraft eingebauten Micro-Feiertage gestartet, der nun bis zum 23. Januar in diesem Titel aktiv sein wird. Dabei basiert dieses sehr kurze Ingame Event vollständig auf dem ersten Läuten des Skarabäus-Gongs im Jahr 2006 und soll es den Spielern dieses Titels ermöglichen, die Öffnung der Tore von Ahn’Quiraj erneut oder möglicherweise auch zum ersten Mal mitzuerleben. Um dieses Ziel zu erreichen, müssen die Teilnehmer dieses Micro-Feiertags dann Ressourcen in der Spielwelt sammeln, Kultisten töten und mehrere neue Weltquests in Silithus abschließen. Die siegreiche Fraktion dieses Wettkampfs darf sich am Ende des Events dann darüber freuen, dass ihre Flagge ein Jahr lang über den Toren von Ahn’Quiraj hängt.

Folgend findet ihr zusätzlich zu der offiziellen Ankündigung der Entwickler nun auch noch eine umfangreiche Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten Informationen zu diesem Ingame Event.

 

Beschreibung: Mit diesem Feiertag möchten wir an das erste Läuten des Skarabäus-Gongs am 23. Januar 2006 erinnern. Die Spieler können das Öffnen der Tore von Ahn’Quiraj erneut oder vielleicht auch zum ersten Mal miterleben, indem sie Questgegenstände sammeln und bei NSCs abgeben. Die siegreiche Fraktion kann sich dann darüber freuen (und damit angeben), dass ihre Flagge über den Toren hängt – zumindest bis zum nächsten Mini-Feiertag „Ruf des Skarabäus“.

Remembering the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj

On January 23, 2006, a bloody war was triggered by a simple sound: the banging of a gong. No rallying fanfare, no bloodthirsty yell; just an eerie silence. Those long, uneasy seconds of dread. The calm before the storm.Standing shoulder-to-shoulder before the Scarab Wall, no one could have predicted what would happen—an epic ten-hour battle that claimed the lives of thousands of Azeroth’s bravest—or fully comprehended the effect it would have.

 

Action First, Faction Second

That’s not to say the battle at the gates of Ahn’Qiraj came as a surprise. When the menace of C’Thun turned into an urgent threat, leaders across the world pored over plans and forged unlikely connections as pressure mounted. Both factions knew war was coming and personal glory was a hubris no-one could risk. Any notion that one army could defeat General Rajaxx and his colossal battalion was soon abandoned as fantasy.

It was a unique time: scattered armies with varying allegiances were thrown together and faction pride was put aside. Let’s be clear: the battle at Ahn’Qiraj was won purely on the principle “united we stand, divided we fall.”

 

Warmongering vs. Gold Hungering

This uneasy alliance was not without its critics. Some showed their disapproval by shunning the war effort altogether, but others expressed opposition through acts of aggression. Rogue elements on both sides, unwilling to stomach this perceived betrayal of their faction, did not sit idle. Just as neutral auction houses became a tool for factions to share resources, they also became virtual battlegrounds. Crucial resources were picked up for next-to-nothing and sold on for personal gain. As with all wars, those who profit aren’t always the brave.

The sheer scale of that war effort is almost unimaginable when we live in a time of extended storage and fast mail. But back then, backpacks and cloth stacks were smaller. Getting precious resources gathered, sorted, and sent took many hours. And it took several weeks to source bandages, food, and equipment—resources that were in high demand and would soon dwindle.

 

The Importance of Remembrance

There are parallels with current events that are impossible to ignore: once more, we Azerothians stand united against the Burning Legion as they wreak havoc across the Broken Isles. We attempt to put aside a complex, bitter history in order defeat a common enemy. We eye each other suspiciously, even as we fight side by side.

We would do well, in these dark times, to remember the courage and spirit of those who were there at the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj. We must have long memories if we’re to make quick work of the demon forces we now face.

From January 21–23 we ask that you join us as we remember the fallen and celebrate the victory. All of Azeroth are invited to a special holiday, ‘Call of the Scarab,’ where we will gather to perform acts of remembrance and share our factions’ pride.
