Children's Week is Coming: April 29 - May 5

Children's Week is coming! Taking place once a year in Orgrimmar, Stormwind, Dalaran, and Shattrath City, this week-long celebration is a time to give back to the innocents orphaned by war.

This year, the holiday will begin on April 29 and will end on May 5. Take an orphan under your wing, perform the tasks you are presented with and you’ll show one of Azeroth’s children that you care (and be rewarded with a special in-game pet to boot).
Many orphans wish they had someone special to show them the wonders of the world. Throughout the year, they often spend their time wandering around their home cities of Stormwind or Orgrimmar, dreaming of the day they'll be old enough (and big enough) to venture out into the world to see the sights their parents would have shown them.

During Children's Week, brave heroes of the Horde and the Alliance can make these kids' dreams come true! Visit your faction’s local orphanage to take one of these children on a whirlwind adventure around the world.


Event Details
When: April 29 - May 5th

Where:

  • Alliance: Orphan Matron Nightingale in Stormwind
  • Horde: Orphan Matron Battlewail in Orgrimmar
  • All Factions: Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath City, Orphan Matron Aria in Dalaran.
Activities
Visit famous landmarks with one of Azeroth’s orphans by your side, embark on adventures across the lands of Azeroth, and bring your young friend back to the orphanage.

Children's Week in Eastern Kingdoms or Kalimdor

Many orphans wish they had someone special to show them the wonders of the world. Throughout the year, these children spend their time wandering around their home cities of Stormwind or Orgrimmar, dreaming of the day they'll be old enough (and big enough) to venture out into the world and see the sights their parents would have shown them. During Children's Week, brave adventurers of the Horde and the Alliance can make these kids' dreams come true! Visit your faction’s local orphanage to take one of these children on a whirlwind adventure around the world. Talk to either Orphan Matron Nightingale in Stormwind (Alliance) or Orphan Matron Battlewail in Orgrimmar (Horde). After that, you’ll be able to take your young friend on an adventure across Azeroth.

Pet Rewards
  • Mr. Wiggles - summoned with the Piglet's Collar, this cute piglet is one of the reward options available from your faction capital city quest.
  • Whiskers the Rat - summoned with the Rat Cage, this cute baby rat is one of the reward options available from your faction capital city quest.
  • Speedy - summoned with the Turtle Box, this cute baby turtle is one of the reward options available from your faction capital city quest.
  • Scooter the Snail - summoned with the Snail Shell, this adorable baby snail is one of the reward options available from your faction capital city quest.

Children's Week in Shattrath

The orphans of Shattrath's Lower City, victims of the war that rages across Outland, also need company and adventure. Talk to Orphan Matron Mercy to offer one of Shattrath’s orphans the adventure of a lifetime as you embark on an adventure across Outland and learn a little about your ward along the way.

The outcome of the ongoing battle against the Burning Legion may one day lie in the hands of these children, so a little encouragement, or a push in the right direction, could make all the difference in the world.

Pet Rewards
  • Egbert - summoned with the Egbert's Egg, this cute baby hawkstrider is one of the reward options available from the “Back to the Orphanage” quest, which begins with Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath City.
  • Peanut - summoned with the Elekk Training Collar, this cute baby elekk is one of the reward options available from the “Back to the Orphanage” quest, which begins with Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath City.
  • Willy - this baby floating eye will occasionally wake from his nap to kill a nearby creature classified in the game as a "critter." He is one of the reward options available from the “Back to the Orphanage” quest, which begins with Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath City.
  • Legs - this cute baby Spore Walker is one of the reward options available from the “Back to the Orphanage” quest, which begins with Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath City.

Children's Week in Dalaran

The orphans of Northrend need your help. For less than the cost of a cup of Kungaloosh, you can sponsor an unfortunate orphan like little Roo or Kekek. Simply contact Orphan Matron Aria in Dalaran to pledge your time and show one of these children that you care. You can make all the difference in the life of a young Oracle or Wolvar. Act now!

Pet Rewards
  • Curious Oracle Hatchling - this little companion can be obtained during Northrend Children's Week by completing a quest chain.
  • Curious Wolvar Pup - this little companion can be obtained during Northrend Children's Week by completing a quest chain.

Other Rewards
  • Achievements: Children's Week currently offers a total of 110 achievement points, split over seven achievements and one meta-achievement. *Please note that achievement objectives between the Horde and Alliance are nearly the same, though there are some minor differences.
  • Titles: Matron or Patron, depending on the gender of your character, granted for completing the meta-achievement “For the Children.”

Join them for their non-stop live stream where all ad revenue raised not only on this weekend but from the whole month will also be donated to the charity. Donate and be around in chat because whenever Nik gains a talent point a giveaway will be done for your chance to win some awesome prizes!

    According to the icons, Death Knight S12 has a carapace styled buckle.

    When it's available, could you make an updated video of that too, Boub?

    Pretty please? <3

    I totaly understand all of the sighing and frustation there lol. I got to 634 cinders and finaly gave up. I know, I know, I was close... but honestly I could only stand DRUDGING up the nessesary people to do this with and get the bosses down only so many months in a row. After weeks and weeks, then months and months of the same thing I figured, "Frick it. Some day I'll go back in get it maybe, but for now I have a staff thats close enough and I think I'll go regain a small portion of the sanity I gave up getting just to this point."

    Congratulations Nana and guildies

    Catchy song.

    I like the mage set, but those eyes just throw me off so much. I hope they decide to remove that glow.

    Those armor sets just look silly. They should rework the armor model so they don't have to use the same 5 parts every time, but go crazier every time.

    That video was excellent! Can definitely see that a lot of work went into it, great job!

    Still got 245 more Smouldering Essences to collect myself, unfortunately my guild disbanded so I'm stuck now - maybe soloing Alysrazor each week in MoP will be easy enough for me to keep at it for ~49 weeks.

    AMAZING VOICE!

    Also very well made video!

    Mage set is cool and themed to fit the expansion. Warrior set is so-so, same old theme, over-sized shoulders, helm with horns, spikes etc. They need to work on the warrior set.

    What an awesome song. Great job there !!!

    Mage set is awesome. Warrior set is kinda ruined by the shoulders...

    mage set reminds me of vivi from ff IX

    hmm, mage set doesn't look too bad actually, the only thing that feels out of place is the head peace :s

    no thanks

    Mage set is just plain ass horrible and Blizzard should feel bad for ever creating it.

    Warrior set is pure awesomeness.
  1. Honeyprime's Avatar
    The mage set looks.......hysterical. Gave me a good laugh. The rest look good.

    Awesome video.

    I'm not a real big PVP'er (I suck so much at PVP) so I won't be getting the meta for this holiday. /sigh

    The only thing likeable about the mage headgear is the hat. It has a very anime feel to it. The rest of the set fits, but it doesn't at the same time. I don't know. It needs more zippers and blue cloth to really stand out for me. I took a color theory class; this is just a piled-on mish-mash of everything but the kitchen sink's color.

    God i love Warrior set.Will look sick on my orc

    I enjoyed the music video because it actually let me see the story that was only available for the legendary chain. It was a good story, too bad we all couldn't at least experience the story points. Same thing with the Rogue Legendary. Seems like they had a cool character, but I know nothing about him through in-game stories.
