Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday Live Jan 21-23
The Call of the Scarab holiday event remembers the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj world event from Vanilla. This event is an Alliance vs Horde showdown, with the victorious faction flying their faction banner for the next year.

The Call of the Scarab quest will send you to Silithus so that you know where the vendor and world quests are. From there you can complete quests and defeat bosses to earn Commendations for your faction. Whichever faction has the most Commendations at the end of the event wins.

Cultist Camps

World Quests
There are several world quests associated with this event, all rewarding Commendations that contribute to your faction’s total.

Material Turn-In Quests
These materials can be turned in to the NPCs near the banners to earn Commendations (Field Marshal Snowfall / Senior Sergeant Kai’jin).

Mini-Boss Quests
These quests are started by items dropped from the Wind Stone and Greater Wind Stone bosses at the Cultist Camps.
