Nightmare New Year
2014, Year of the Horse!
For this year's New Year's release, we wanted to take some inspiration from the Chinese zodiac. 2014 is the year of the horse, so naturally this is what we've come up with...
You weren't expecting ponies, were you?
In Norse mythology, Hrimfaxi and Skinfaxi are the steeds of Night and Day, carrying the chariots of the sun and moon across the sky. Their equivalents in Lore are Frostmane and Embermane, and Ulfgar (remember him?) is worried that something is wrong with them. Embermane, the Steed of Day, has gone missing and her brother Frostmane is keeping the land in perpetual darkness. It's up to you to find her so she can bring back the sun - and bring in the new year.
So then, who's that nightmare steed, you ask? Is he what's keeping Embermane from returning to the sky? /Join frostmane to find out!
New Sun and Moon Lorekeeper Gear!
Ulfgar is a renowned Loremaster of Dwarfhold, and after you've helped him solve his horse problem he'll want to show his appreciation! Visit Ulfgar's shop in /frostmane to find sun and moon themed gear such as...
- Lorekeeper of the Sun armor
- Lorekeeper of the Moon armor
- Solar Lorekeeper Hair & Locks
- Lunar Lorekeeper Hair & Locks

- and more!
Also pictured are the Eternal Revolution Mace and Eternal Revolution Katana, available from the 2014 New Year's Rares shop! And last but not least...
Sir Liest Returns!
That's right, the long-awaited Sir Liest battlepet is here! What a great way to start the new year, right? You can pick Battle Commander Liest up from the Undead Legion Shop. As he is a battle pet, this little guy is Legend-only.
