A weekly event that happens from 9pm and 11pm every Sunday in Krasarang Wilds. Times may vary depending on your server and Daylight savings but if you’re not sure, ask one of the Wandering Heralds travelling between Halfhill and Turtle Beach.
If you arrive during the festivities, you’ll find a group of celebrants shooting off fireworks, chatting by one of several bonfires and enjoy the multitude of lanterns being released into the water. You’ll even see some familiar faces like Lorewalker Cho and Chen Stormstout inviting you to try his special brew.
You can speak to Lorewalker Shuchun who is standing in front of Liu Lung’s statue to learn more about the festival – a celebration of the first Pandaren explorer. As a bonus you can experience this historical event for yourself if you’ve completed the Balad of Liu Lang as part of your Lorewalker rep grind.
If you’re there for the opening or closing ceremony, you’ll earn an achievement Wanderers, Dreamers, and You.
Legend has it that Liu Lang once set out to explore the seas beyong Pandaria on the back of a turtle. Every few years, he would come back, always seeking new explorers to travel with him. To this day, whenever a pandaren is daydreaming or staring off into space, we ask if they’re “waiting for the turtle.”
Most pandaren aren’t very adventurous – they like to stay close to hearth and home. But some of us are still dreamers…
Tonight we gather at Turtle Beach on the southern coast to gaze out at the sea and celebrate Liu Lang’s spirit of adventure. It’s called the Wanderer’s Festival.
Pet Battlers will be interested to know that you’ll be able to tame a pet unique to the festival – the Wanderer’s Festival Hatchling (an aquatic combat pet). Be sure to get there early though as they tend to get snapped up pretty quickly.
Have you experienced the Wanderer’s Festival yet?
