Let’s face it. Sometimes, the needless grinding and progressing of video games can be boring. Sometimes you just want to relax and do something that isn’t important to the game’s structure or plot. For MMORPGs, this can be both an easy thing to do and a hard thing to do. For while they often have a lot of content, but that doesn’t mean it may be as relaxing as you want it to be. If World of Warcraft’s latest Micro-Holiday doesn’t relax you, you might have a few issues.
The Spring Balloon Festival is currently going on in World of Warcraft and it’ll continue until the end of the 12th of May. In it, several characters in Azeroth (some of which you might know) are giving balloon tours throughout the world. As you ride, you’ll get special “commentary” about the areas below you, as well as the chance to meet new people who are on the ride with you. You can chat with them about what you’re seeing, hearing, or whatever. Plus, you’ll get to see Azeroth in a way you likely have never been able to before.
So sit back, relax, go up into the sky, and look down in wonder on all that has been created in a game that you enjoy.
This is but the latest of the games Micro-Holiday’s. Past ones included Orphan Week, Volunteer Guard Day, March of the Tadpoles, Ungoro Madness, and much more. There are still two more coming, the Glowcap Festival and the Thousand Boat Bash. It’s Blizzard’s hope that these Micro-Holidays inspire you to try out new things to break up the “routine” of World of Warcraft. Most likely, this idea will continue, and for good reason, as it does add more content to the game without having to be something that’s “always there.”
