Blizzard Gives WoW Players Double XP Until April 20

Blizzard gives World of Warcraft players double the amount of experience for a month. The developer calls the action Winds of Wisdom and reports that it is aimed at people who stay indoors.

The Winds of Wisdom promotion kicked off on March 20 and will run through April 20. All players in Battle for Azeroth will receive double the amount of XP, including Starter Edition and Legion players. “Players will also have the opportunity to take advantage of this experience boost while continuing to use their favorite heirlooms,” Blizzard wrote.

The developer does not directly attribute the promotion to the measures in place due to the new coronavirus, but does mention that it is intended for people who stay indoors and “return to Azeroth”, making double the amount of xp an incentive to play WoW during possible lockdowns.
