WoW Wednesday: Children’s Week Guide

Children’s Week is another of World of Warcraft‘s major holidays that runs from April 30th through May 7th. During this time, players can adopt orphans, giving them the opportunity to see what a hero’s life is like. Players of both factions can adopt three different orphans, each with their own quests to see different parts of Azeroth. Each quest line ends with the choice of having to pick one of several different battle pets. There’s a total of ten holiday pets you can obtain.

To adopt an orphan visit Orphan Matron Nightingale in Stormwind, Orphan Matron Battlewail in Orgrimmar, Orphan Matron Mercy in Shattrath, or Orphan Matron Aria in Northrend Dalaran.
