Gates of Ahn'Qiraj open on Medivh

Yesterday night the gates of Ahn'Qiraj opened on Medivh. While the bearer of the scepter was stuck in queue for over two hours, hundreds of players were waiting at the gates in Silithius. After the gong was used, a massive war spread out.. and not only in Silithius! While brave adventurers fought the evils coming through the gates, other were fighting the colossal bugs that appeared at the different hives. All over Silithius horde & alliance were fighting the ancient evils.

Reports came in, that in areas near Silithius, like Southern Barrens, Tanaris, Feathermoon, etc. massive Qiraj resonating crystals emerged from beneath the earthen crust, guarded by Qiraj Defenders. The war spreads over Kalimdor and it is up to us to hold the lines.

Apparently the person using the scepter on the gong will be granted with a legendary mount: Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal
Rumours say that all owners of a scepter can use the gong to obtain that mount, as long as the war rages (approx. three days). From test server we know, it is also possible to find the mount inside the AQ instance. The legendary mount is a purple bug, you can ride also outside of Ahn'Qiraj.

To enter AQ20 or AQ40 there will be no attunement quests needed once the gates are open. Here is a link to the first movie from the opening, not a very good one but gives some impressions. We can expect longer videos to show up during the next days... and the server Mannoroth is close to open the gates as well.

In the sum up, not only the event itself but also the incoming reports from the AQ instances sound like a lot of fun...
