Azurethos, The Winged Typhoon

Azurethos, the terror of the Kul’tiran seas, marshalls the power of wind to force enemies out of its roost, cause waterspouts, and capsize ships. He has earned his reputation as one of the deadliest beasts in Kul Tiras.

Overview

Azurethos attacks the party with the power of wind in an attempt to force them out of its roost.

Arena Skirmishes Bonus Event (April 16th – April 23rd)

Blizzard (Source)

Sharpen your swords and reinforce your boards, because you’re called to the PvP Arena for the hectic mayhem of Skirmishes.

THIS WEEK: ARENA SKIRMISHES

All week, from anywhere in Azeroth, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), select the Player vs. Player tab on the bottom of the window, and then under Casual, choose Arena Skirmish and JOIN BATTLE. You’ll be matched up with teammates and provided with opponents to kill in the Arena. You can also queue for a Premade group or create your own group within the Premade tab. 

Look for the following all week long:

Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and in Boralus has a quest for you–The Arena Calls. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal.

Quest requirement: Win 10 Arena PvP Skirmishes

Reward: A PvP loot box

Passive buff: +50% honor gains from Skirmishes

If you’ve been looking to make some Honor gains, this is the week to do it!

WHAT ARE BONUS EVENTS?

The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

Arathi Blizzard PvP Brawl (April 16th – April 23rd)

Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You’ll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a – mostly – frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you’re prepared for the weather.

Noblegarden (April 22nd – April 29th)

Noblegarden is just around the corner and updates include the new Noble Gardener’s Hearthstone which will cost 150 Noblegarden Chocolate, and three new rabbit ears.
