Travellers, it is time to put aside your differences, your hatred of each other and join together for the winds of war are blowing. Soon, with the cooperation of both sides, your efforts will not be for naught.
In the west, lies Silithus, home to the Qiraji, trapped in their eternal prison behind the scarab walls thanks to both Anachronos and Fandral. However, the dormant Old God stirs in his slumber, slowly waking from his eternal sleep.
Once more, the Qiraji stir, with the power of the Old God flowing through them, many of the Qiraji have escaped their prison, forcing the denizens of Azeroth to prepare, for war.
Soon, the combined efforts of The Horde and Alliance will come together to end this blight once and for all.
Join us as we embark, together, to collect resources and materials to help with the war effort. Every member of the Horde and Alliance, no matter how big or small, can help contribute.
Our world is changing, and with that, we too must adapt to persevere.

War Effort: Alliance and Horde will work together to gather millions of supplies to aid the war front that is brewing in Silithus to launch an assault on the ancient Ahn’Qiraj Gates.

With that being said, there will also be a host of new quests, tier item overhauls, new profession recipes, and much more.

Please note that the requirements for the War Effort have been greatly increased due to the size of the population and to bring about a challenge worthy of Blizzard’s original War Effort. This will allow everyone to participate in the event.
We want to make this experience, one that you will remember forever, much like your original adventures in the World of Warcraft.
The staff here at Elysium wishes you the best of luck, as you journey through new challenges, go on epic new adventures and make memories that will last a life time.
