WoW: Call of the Scarab – This is what the mini holiday is all about
These days Azeroth remembers the opening of the Ahn'Qiraj gates. As part of this epic event from Vanilla WoW times, players from both factions had to collect huge amounts of resources before a player was allowed to use the famous gong to open the gates.
This was preceded by an extensive quest series in which the respective player had to secure the scepter of the sandstorms. As a reward, the lucky man was given the only legendary mount in the game to date, the Black Qiraji Resonance Crystal, and the title Scarab Lord. Opening the gates of Ahn'Qiraj allowed server-wide access to the two raids Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj and Temples of Ahn'Quiraj. To this day, many WoW players remember this event, which caused the servers to crash in many places: So many characters had gathered in southern Silithus that the WoW infrastructure could not withstand the onslaught and finally collapsed. The reason why many players wanted to attend this event at the time is obvious: over weeks, they had collected countless quantities of craft materials and farmed reputation until it was finally time to reap the rewards of their own work. In addition, the opening of the gates as an event was second to none at the time: such a major event was previously unknown to most MMO fans.
Even if the whole process from hitting the gong to the end of the sequence itself was like a single jerky orgy for many fans (if they could have been part of it at all), the mention of Ahn'Quiraj and the associated event at WoW veterans up to today ecstatic, nostalgically transfigured enthusiasm.
