Blizzard April Fools 2016 Round Up
2016/04/02 at 12:24 AM
As usual in Blizzard fashion, we awoke to a bunch of brand new news that made us smile and get our hopes up only to realize...it's the first of April! Urg! We had quite a few fun little things shown to us across many of the Blizzard platforms.
Unfortunately, this means that Wowhead's
own post from April 1st
is also untrue. No Pepe Artifact, burning Garrison, Old Gods sponsoring the Darkmoon Faire, or Overwatch event in WoW. The entire Wowhead staff had a blast putting the data together and hope it made you smile!

Challenge Mode Reward Updates
Blizzard has just posted a blog which details changes to the Challenge Mode rewards issued when the current "season" ends.
Some rewards are getting big changes, notably the Silver reward mounts from
Ancestral Phoenix Egg
are now account-wide plus you automatically know all four color variations instead of having to pick one color. In addition, the nine
titles for Realm Best times
are being completely removed.
Watcher later posted clarifications on why the Realm Best titles are being permanently removed, which we've added to our blog.
* Reward ClarificationsWith the upcoming end of the Challenge Mode Season, we wanted to provide some additional clarification on how we plan to handle rewards.
All Achievements associated with Mists of Pandaria Challenge Modes will become Feats of Strength.
The “Undaunted” title for achieving a full set of Bronze medals will become account-wide.

April Fools' Roundup
We love coming up with April Fools' ideas at Wowhead and seeing what clever things other sites come up with! This year, the Wowhead Staff plotted to liven up the 5.3 PTR with
cosmetic character auras, Earth Day, Doritios Locos feasts. and more
. We hope you all had fun with it, and we'd love to see some cosmetic rewards or updated world events in the future on the real PTR!
Here's some of our other favorite pranks:
ElvUI users did the Harlem Shake
upon logging in, which not only made your character dance but shook up all of your ability buttons.
WoW Interface discovered that Blizzard was switching to a Flash-based UI
, with swf and js files in the Patch 5.4 alpha client.
WarcraftPets broke the news that players can summon multiple pets at a time
but with a cost--the more pets you have out, the lower their polygon count
April Fool's and News Round Up

April Fool's is one of our favorite holidays at Wowhead--we love coming up with our own pranks and seeing what other sites get up to! This year, the Wowhead staff plotted and created
a newspost about moggable legendaries and new world events on the Mists of Pandaria beta
--two things that I really wish were real! We hope you all had fun with it--we certainly did with all the disguises, fake database items, and Photoshop magic.
Here's some other April Fool's posts we really liked from around the web:
So how did you like all our grandios announcements yesterday? All nonsense you think? Okay, okay, we admit it: Yes, they were April Fool's pranks. But don't you wish they were real? To let you in on the fun we had yesterday and make sure you didn't miss any of our carefully crafted jokes, we list all of them again in this thread for you to check out. Which of them did you like best?
Happy beginning of April! :)
