[[OOC: Hello! I’m posting this event thread on behalf of Compasion, and their stellar concept of returning to our Class Halls to confront the mysterious events that usher us into the Shadowlands.]]
Past Class Events
The Knights of the Ebon Blade
When: Thursday, September 10, 2020. 6pm new server time (MDT)
Where: Archerus, The Eastern Plaguelands
Look in the Group Finder for (Alliance and Horde): ’ Shadowlands Class Event Series ’
The Death Knight event is graciously lead by Burier of the guild “Order of the Ebon Knight”.
The Lich king has risen new death knights to join the ranks of the Ebon blade, and so they hold a ceremony to introduce these new deathknights into their rank. But there is tension in the air—you do not add new soldiers to your ranks unless you’re expecting a fight. Some within the Ebon Blade do not trust it, some even outright refuse to serve under ‘another Lich King’, as due their past experiences.”
Burier: “it is another freshly raised class of 4th Generation Knights. Bolvar keeps on raising them for a threat long passed (ie. N’zoth), but is he perhaps intending to further reinforce losses sustained by the Ebon Blade?"
- The event is in Acherus so the graduating class is likely going to be downstairs, whereas higher level discussions will be around the order table. For this event maybe think about how recently your DK has been raised, and how they feel about these fresh faces, or what recent disturbances they’ve noticed. If you are a fresh face, how do you feel being raised and initiated into the Ebon Blade?
The Gathering of Priests
When: Tuesday, September 8, 2020. 5pm new server time (MDT)
Where: Netherlight Temple, the Sanctum of Shadows
Alliance Contact: Compasion-CenarionCircle
" The priests who dove into Ny’alotha and the visions of Nzoth at Wrathions behest saw strange visions there, and heard worrying whispers. Truths are mangled and re-arranged to be deceiving but to many speak of a sky torn asunder for these visions to be ignored. The priests of Netherlight Temple gather to make sense of all these accounts. This event will likely start in the sanctum of shadows. For the event think about A: what has your priest specifically witnessed? The sky being torn asunder? A glimpse into one of the realms?"
- Be creative, but if drawing directly from beta please also be courteous! Reckless spoilers aren’t appreciated. We’ll probably have some shadowpriests as well, so what would the Void whisper to them about you. This is less necessary but I wanted to throw it out there as a fun character activity."
The Shaman of Azeroth seek answers
When: Tuesday, September 15, 2020, 5pm new server time (MDT)
Where: The Maelstrom
Host: Kharnom-Dalaran , Vita-Cenarion Circle
Group Finder: ’ Shadowlands Class Event Series’
The shaman of the Earthen Ring are worried. They have noted disturbances recently–the dead are not passing as they should, and are resistant to shaman’s trying to guide them. In parallel with the meeting of Druids at Hyjal, the Earthen Ring shamans have called another in the Maelstrom, to discuss what these events may mean.
The Druids of the Circle seek balance
When: Thursday, September 17, 2020, 6pm new server time (MDT)
Where: The Dreamgrove, Val’sharah
Event Host: Ahzell-Turalyon
Group Finder: ’ Shadowlands Class Event Series’
Many druids have noticed the same imbalances the shaman of the Earthen Ring have. Even more worrying, the newly integrated Thornspeaker druids of Drustvar are reporting the forces of the coven re-emerging, and the druids of Zuldazar report Sylvanas’ forces in their mists. Deeply worried, Cenarius calls the druids of the Cenarion Circle—and their new allies—to meeting in the Emerald Dream way to address these rising threats.
The Paladins confront enemies of old
Where: Light’s Hope Chapel, the Eastern Plaguelands
When: Tuesday, September 22, 2020, 5pm new server time (MDT)
The Paladins of Light’s hope chapel have noticed an uptick in undead activity in the Plaguelands and beyond. The Highlord invites all paladins to Lights Hope Chapel to address this rising threat, and how to rectify it.
The Monks convene
When: Thursday, September 24, 2020, 6pm new server time (MDT)
Where: The hot springs in the Peak of Serenity, Kun-Lai Plateau.
Many monks felt the spiritual disturbances early, often during meditation, sometimes outside it. But it did not bode well for things to come. Some felt their astral spirit being pulled away, others got deeply sick from simply trying to project. So when the forces of death finally struck, it was little surprise. Meeting under the peaceful image of the Jade Serpent that graces the Peak of Serenity’s hidden pools, they gather to discuss how to address this undead threat."
When: Tuesday, September 29, 2020, 5pm new server time (MDT)
Where: Hall of the Guardian
With undead running rampant, the mages of the Hall of the Guardian call an urgent meeting. They must counter the necromantic magics that are returning once more, and perhaps even address a traitor in their midst…
When: Thursday, October 1, 2020, 6pm new server time (MDT)
Where: The Dreadscar Rift
Also noticing an uptick in necromantic energies, the Council of the Black Harvest calls warlocks to meeting, on the semantics of death magics.
What are the benefits? Drawbacks? How does it play with the magics of shadow and fel. Should it be a force that Warlocks wield? Should it be a force that warlocks oppose?
The Hunters journey to Northrend
When: Tuesday, October 6, 2020. 5:00 pm new server time (MDT)
Where: River’s Heart, The Sholazar Basin
Hunters from across the world gather in Northrend, eager to test their skills against the land’s formidable challenges. But strange, sinister things are once again on the move in the frozen north…
Following Sylvanas Windrunner’s actions, the hunters of True Shot Lodge gather to discuss the fates of the remaining dark rangers that once fought the Legion alongside living marksmen—as well as worrying reports of rising undead noticed by hunters of all stripes from across the world.
When: Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 6pm new server time (MDT)
Where: The Halls of Valor
Warriors Gather at the behest of Odyn, Who has sent them messages Via Raven that Helya’s allies and remaining forces are gathering. They gather to feast, but more so discuss the forces of undeath attacking every single city, and where to strike to maximize damage to those forces.
Following the rallying cry of the many paladin orders against the Scourge, those under the banner of The Silver Hand are mustering for maneuvers on the Argent Tournament Grounds.
When: Saturday, October 10th, 7PM EST (5pm new server time MDT)
Who: Anyone willing to lend a hand with the defenses against the resurgent Scourge
Where: Argent Tournament Grounds, Icecrown
The Demon Hunters
When: October 15, 2020, 6pm MDT
Where: The Fel Hammer
After the war, the Illidari reconvene on the Fel Hammer to mourn their dead brethren, contemplate the fate of the Illidari, and discuss their role in stopping the tide of undeath. Tensions may run high, given that only weeks ago they were on opposite sides of a battlefield.
[[Originally scheduled for October 13, 2020, all the patch day activity sent the rogues into their shady haunts and secret lairs until another opportunity to meet arises. Rescheduled for next week.]]
When: Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 5pm new server time (MDT)
Where: Cantrips and Crows, Dalaran over Northrend’s Crystalsong Forest
The rogues of the Uncrowned have noticed covert agents of the Cult of the Damned infiltrating cities across the world, and call themselves together in the Dalaran sewers to discuss the threat. But with the espionage scene for both factions still ongoing (a true spy never rests) the tensions of this meeting may run high.
[[Thank you all for joining these events!]]
