Cranberry chutney and pumpkin pie, slow roasted turkey and spice bread stuffing, my oh my. A feast for your stomach, a feast for your eyes can only mean one thing, Pilgrim’s Bounty has arrived! This year, Pilgrim’s Bounty begins on November 25th and will wrap up on December 2nd. WoWHead.com has a full review of this event which you can find here.

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the challenge variants please see below.

New for 2019
At this time there does not appear to be any updates for Pilgrim’s Bounty this year.

A Wrinkle in Time
Please be aware some of the zones have undergone big changes throughout several expansions. In order for some of the higher level challengers to access the Pilgrim’s Bounty NPCs, the event’s bountiful tables, or find the wild turkeys you may need to locate Zidormi to turn back time for that zone.

Quests & Daily Quests
This holiday revolves around food therefore the quests and daily quests do as well. Several quests require players to cook and bring the items to NPCs. Due to cooking NOT being permitted for Irons those quests are NOT ALLOWED. Other quests allow players to cook or buy the items to bring to the NPCs. These quests are ALLOWED but you’ll need to purchase the required quest items directly off the Auction House. You may NOT trade with other players to get them and you may NOT send the cooked items to your challenger.

Completing the dailies will reward you with a Pilgrim’s Bounty. Inside there is a chance you could find the Frightened Bush Chicken pet, the Silver-Plated Turkey Shooter toy, a Fine Pilgrim’s Hat, a Turkey Shooter, or cooking recipes.

Bountiful Tables
The bountiful tables can be found in all major cities and towns with inns. Eating at these tables is ALLOWED for the purposes of completing the quests, however, please note that eating the same meal 5 times will give you buffs that are NOT ALLOWED and must be removed immediately. They are as follows: Feast On Cranberries, Feast On Pie, Feast On Stuffing, Feast On Sweet Potatoes, and Feast On Turkey. Additionally, the Spirit of Sharing buff which increases reputation gains by 10% for 1 hour is also NOT ALLOWED and must be removed pronto. This buff is received after eating 5 helpings of all the available foods at a bountiful table.

Feasting Finery, Feathered Friends, & Fun
You are ALLOWED to obtain the toy and pets from this event. Please remember that while you are allowed to add the pets to your journal, you are NOT ALLOWED to take part in any pet battles. The Frightened Bush Chicken pet and the Silver-Plated Turkey Shooter toy as mentioned above can be acquired from the Pilgrim’s Bounty reward. The Plump Turkey pet is awarded upon completion of the achievement Pilgrim. Completing this achievement is not possible for an Iron as you need to cook some of the holiday foods which is NOT ALLOWED.

WoW’s 15th anniversary celebration event is shaping up to be the biggest yet! This year the celebration will run from November 5th through January 7th for the Americas, November 6th through January 8th for Europe and November 7th through January 9th for Asia! A party this big needed a much bigger venue. You can find all of your anniversary event NPCs in the Caverns of Time! The Alliance can find a portal to Caverns of Time in their main portal room in the mage tower in Stormwind. The Horde’s portal to Caverns of Time is located down a ramp on the left-hand side just before you enter the main portal room in Orgrimmar. For a more in-depth look at the event please see WoWHead’s guide here.

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the challenge variants please see below.

The Anniversary Gifts
Logging in after the event goes live will reward you with an achievement. You’ll also receive an in-game mail with special event goodies. This year’s anniversary gift contains the following:
– The battle pet Lil’Nefarian. While you are ALLOWED to add this pet to your collection pet battling with your challenger is NOT ALLOWED.
– The Celebration Package when used will increase all experience and reputation gains by 15% until the event ends. This item is NOT ALLOWED.
– A Celebration Firework. This item does not appear to have any buffs associated with it and is ALLOWED.
– An Invitation from the Timewalkers. This starts a quest that will bring you to the Memories of Azeroth raid. Completing this questline will give you an item you can use to teleport to Caverns of time for the length of the event. There is a minimum level required to start this quest. During our testing, you needed to be level 60+ to complete the first part of this quest. At this time we are not sure if anyone lower then level 60 can start this quest. It does not award any experience, just more of a breadcrumb to lead you to the Caverns of Time. The next part of the chain takes you to the event’s battleground which is a no go for you. You do not need to do this quest to access the vendors or trivia historians. You can use the portal to Caverns of Time. The Alliance can find a portal to Caverns of Time in their main portal room in the mage tower in Stormwind. The Horde’s portal to Caverns of Time is located down a ramp on the left-hand side just before you enter the main portal room in Orgrimmar. Yes, you can use the portal to get there at level 1.

Vendor Items
There are a few new items available from the vendors scattered around the Caverns of Time. The Sugary Soul Shard, the Spellstone Delight, and the Ookerdooker Elixir. These are NOT ALLOWED and should be avoided with your challenger. Also available are special 15th anniversary balloons. These come in BlueRed. and are a one-time use item but you can have up to 20 in your bag. For those feeling a bit mischievous, you can purchase Sharpened Pins to pop the balloons. Both of these items are ALLOWED.

Trivia
Don’t panic if you can not find Historian Llore or Historian Ju’pa in your factions main city. They are located in the Caverns of Time this year.

The trivia question is a daily quest once again!

“Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum! Cry for mercy; the reckoning has come!”

Our ghouls and goblins can delight while the rest of us will be cowering with fright! Hallow’s End has come round again and will be haunting us from October 18th through November 1st. For a full in-depth review of this event please feel free to check out WoWHead.com’s guide: Hallow’s End 2019

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the other challenge variants please see below.

New for 2019
Looks like the only thing new for this year was an update to the item level of the loot dropped by the Headless Horseman from the dungeon event and doesn’t really pertain to us.

Quests & Daily Quests
You may complete all of the quests and daily quests that are offered for this event.

Apple Bobbing
In the starting zone towns, you will find water barrels with apples in them where you can bob for apples. These apples will return 3% of your health and mana over 25 seconds while eating and do not provide any buffs. Feel free to stock up on them but do keep in mind this item will vanish from your bags once the event is over.

A Stinky Situation
You are ALLOWED to participate in the following quests: Stink Bombs Away! (Alliance), Clean Up in Stormwind, Stink Bombs Away! (Horde), and Clean Up in Undercity. Please do keep in might that these quests might cause you to be PVP flagged for a brief amount of time so exercise caution.

The Wickerman
You are ALLOWED to complete the Wickerman quest however the buff Unburdened (Alliance) or Grim Visage (Horde) is NOT ALLOWED. This buff provides a bonus to experience and reputation right-click it off immediately.
Additionally, every 4 hours an announcement will be made throughout Stormwind and Undercity signifying an RP event will be starting in 10 minutes that takes place by the Wickerman statue. At the end of the RP event, Genn or Sylvanas will buff nearby players with either Greymane’s Resolve or Decree of the Dark Lady. These buffs are NOT ALLOWED! Ideally, you should leave the area when the announcement is made about the event starting soon. If you do happen to get the buff on you it needs to be removed at once.

Headless Horseman Town Event
For this event, the Headless Horseman will rain down terror upon the starting zone towns setting the buildings on fire. You will need to grab a water bucket and try to put the flames out and then the Headless Horseman will descend to the ground where everyone can attack him. Once defeated a pumpkin will appear on the ground for you to loot. You are ALLOWED to participate in this event however there are two things to make note of. First off after the Headless Horseman has been defeated you’ll receive a buff called “Victory”. This buff should be removed but can only be done so after leaving town. Secondly, please take care when the Headless Horseman is around. The fires he sets can kill your challenger. Due to the risk of the Headless Horseman killing your challenger, it might be best to wait out the encounter and run in to loot the pumpkin after it’s over.

Candy Buckets
You are ALLOWED to utilize the candy buckets that are scattered across the inns throughout Azeroth. It’s a great way to pick up some relatively easy XP but it will up the mileage on your mounts as this is a travel heavy activity. WoWHead has put together a complete list of candy bucket locations which can be found here. Don’t forget if you are a higher level challenger you may need to find and speak with Zidormi to turn back time in order to access candy buckets in some zones.

Raise your tankards and get ready for fun, this year’s Brewfest has now begun! Brewfest will run from September 20th through October 6th. For a complete overview of the event feel free to check out WoWHead’s guide: Brewfest 2019

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the other challenge variants please see below.

New for 2019
Several new things have been added for this year’s Brewfest including new Allied Race alcohol vendors and a water elemental selling refreshing water. The apple barrel locations have been slightly shifted and the Down With The Dark Iron event has been removed from the requirements needed to obtain the Brewmaster title. Instead, there are different types of invasions such as Hozen Totem or Contained Alemental. It has been brought to our attention that there is an updated Dark Iron invasion. These NPCs are hostile, seem to scale, and will inflict damage upon you. You may want to sit this event out and wait for the quest item, Direbrew Cog, to become available to grab. It is also possible that you may only be able to turn in one of the three invasion daily quests in a day.

Quests and Daily Quests
You may complete all of the quests and daily quests for this event except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance). This quest drops from Coren Direbrew in Blackrock Depths and you are not allowed to participate in dungeons.

Coren Direbrew
Coren Direbrew is this event’s main boss and since he is located in Blackrock Depths you are Not Allowed to participate in his slaying.

Brewfest Enthusiast
At 6:15 AM & 6:15 PM Pacific time Mekkatorque and Saurfang will give speeches near their camps. At the end of the speech they will then cast the Brewfest Enthusiast buff on those in the area. This buff has a 2 hour duration and increases experience by 10%. This buff is NOT ALLOWED! If you are in the area when the buff is applied simply right-click it off.

Cosmetics, Toys, and Pets
Most of the cosmetic items have been turned to uncommon quality (green) so those are NOT ALLOWED. There are a few common quality (white) items still in place but please do be careful with these. Do not leave them on. Should you have them on and they get upgraded to uncommon quality (green) in the future you will get flagged.
There are several toys and a few pets available for you to spend your event tokens on. Remember while all toys may be allowed any buffs they give you need to be removed ASAP and even though you are allowed to pick up any missing pets from your collection you are NOT ALLOWED to pet battle with your challengers!

Tin Man:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are allowed except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance).
– Dungeons are NOT ALLOWED so you may not participate in the slaying of Coren Direbrew.
– The Brewfest Enthusiast buff is NOT ALLOWED.
– You are allowed to obtain the cosmetic items, toys, and pets but do remember to follow your gear rules, click off any buffs toys might give you, and no pet battles.

– Dungeons are NOT ALLOWED so you may not participate in the slaying of Coren Direbrew.
– The Brewfest Enthusiast buff is NOT ALLOWED.

Pacifist:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are allowed except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance). The new Contained Alemental event did not seem to incur any kills to my testing character. At the time of this article going up, I had not encountered the Hozen Totem event. You may want to scout that one before trying it with your Pacifist. You do not need to actively participate in the alemental event from what I’ve seen as the item that gives you the daily quest shows up once the invasion has been successfully dealt with. You can run in when it’s over, grab the quest and be on your way. The Hozen event most likely works the same way.
– It has been brought to our attention that an updated Dark Iron invasion does exist. The Dark Iron NPCs are hostile, seem to scale, and will inflict damage against you. You may want to sit this one out and wait for the Direbrew Cog quest item to become available to grab. Watch out for prox kills here.
– You are NOT ALLOWED to kill anything so no, you may not participate in the slaying of Coren Direbrew.

This year’s Harvest Festival will be running from September 10th through September 17th.

The Harvest Festival event has one quest that leads you to honor a specific hero based on your faction. Those who are part of the Alliance will be sent to the tomb of Uther Lightbringer in Western Plaguelands. If you are part of the Horde you will be sent to the tomb of Grom Hellscream in Ashenvale. A few days after completing the quest an item called Bounty of the Harvest will show up in your mailbox.

This event is a great opportunity to grab some nice food and is accessible without needing to complete the quest. Harvest Bread, Harvest Fish, and Harvest Boar will restore 4% of your health per second for 25 seconds. Harvest Nectar will restore 4% of your mana per second for 30 seconds. You will be able to carry a max stack of 20 of these items.

There are also 4 different types of spirit shards that players can get. They are an Anxious Spiritshard, Forlorn Spiritshard, a Peaceful Spiritshard, or a Vengeful Spiritshard. These items are NOT ALLOWED!

This quest will be allowed for Iron, Tin, Working Man, Green Man, Pacifist, Iron Team, and Green Team challengers. Sorry Blood Thirsty and Blood Thirsty Team challengers while you can not complete the quest you are allowed to restock your food supply.

For a more in-depth look at the event please refer to WoWHead’s guide.

Things are heating up in Azeroth with summer’s arrival. What better way to celebrate than with the Midsummer Fire Festival. This year the event runs from June 21st through July 5th. For a complete overview of the event and for lists of bonfire locations feel free to check out WoWHead’s guide: Midsummer Fire Festival

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the other challenge variants please see below.

New for 2019
Bonfires have been added to Zandalar and Kul Tiras. A new toy has been added this year as well, Fire Eater’s Hearthstone.

Festival Bonfires
Bonfires have sprung up across all of Azeroth. You are allowed to complete the Honor the Flame quests as well as the Desecrate this Fire quests. Completing these quests will award Burning Blossoms. These can be used as currency to obtain items from the event’s vendors. You can also use the Burning Blossoms to reignite bonfires that have been extinguished. Should you use the Burning Blossoms to reignite a bonfire or be standing next to a bonfire when someone reignites it you will receive the Fire Festival Fury buff. This buff is NOT ALLOWED. It can be removed so make sure you right-click it off.

If you are one of those challengers that like to dance with danger and want to attempt the Desecrate this Fire quests please be advised this will PvP flag you. For challengers that have flying available, Ster has a helpful tip: “Get close to a bonfire. Click on it to bring up the quest box. Mount up on a flying mount and rise up in the air a few feet. Click Okay to complete the quest. It will not dismount you but you will become PvP flagged. Hit your spacebar (or whichever key you use to gain height on your flying mount) almost instantly after clicking Okay to raise you up into the air, reducing the chances of being attacked. If you don’t have flying it’s much riskier.”

Quests and Daily Quests
You may complete all of the quests and daily quests for this event except for the Summon Ahune and the Shards of Ahune quests. These quests require you to use dungeon finder to group up with other people to access this event boss. Grouping up is Not Allowed for solo challengers.

The Ribbon Pole
At the bonfire locations scattered across Azeroth, you will find ribbon poles. Clicking on these poles and moving to spin in a circle will create colorful ribbons connecting you to the pole. Doing this will give you the Ribbon Dance buff. This buff gives a 10% gain to experience and is NOT ALLOWED.

Bonfire’s Blessing
Bonfire’s Blessing is a zone-wide buff that gives your faction’s players a 30% chance to inflict 10 Fire damage on any melee, ranged, or spell attack, increasing by 10 Fire damage per level. Normally this buff would not be allowed, however since it’s a zone-wide buff that can not be removed we have no choice but to allow it. This is NOT a green light to go around intentionally reigniting bonfires, should you get the buff due to someone else in the zone relighting a fire that’s fine.

Cosmetic Items, Pets, and Toys, Oh My!
You are allowed to obtain all the items from the event’s vendor but that does not mean you can put on the cosmetic gear. You will still need to follow the gear rules. Adding the toys to your toy box and the pets to your journal are allowed as well.

Blood Thirsty Teams: If you are a full team of 5 your team may queue for this dungeon, however, you are not allowed to complete any quests in the dungeon.

Collecting Charms: You’re allowed to collect charms for achievements, pets, mounts, and items if you want.
Blood Thirsty Solo & Teams: While you can collect the Lovely Charms, you’ll need to complete a quest to turn them in. Since you cannot complete these quests it’s back to the blood-soaked fields with you.

It is the Year of the Pig! The Lunar Festival runs from January 28th through February 11th. This year’s update brought seven new toys to the event! Please see the WoWHead.com Lunar Festival Guide for a complete overview of the event.

Honouring Elders
With the exception of  Blood Thirsty, all challengers can go honour Elders and take advantage of the free Experience Points they’ll give you. Honouring an Elder will give you a Lucky Red Envelope and a Coin of Ancestry. Due to the phasing that was added to several zones in recent expansions, you may need to talk to Zidormi to return the zone to how it used to be. The zones you may need to do this for are Undercity, Tirisfal Glades, Blasted Lands, Darkshore, Darnassus, Teldrassil, and Silithus.

 Blood Thirsty: These quests will count against your quests completed totals.

Pacifists: These quests are a great way to start a new Pacifist challenger, especially now that you need to be level five to learn your professions.

Lunar Fortune Buff
In each of the envelopes, you will receive either a Lucky Rocket Cluster or an Elder’s Moonstone. Setting off the Lucky Rocket Cluster from a cluster launcher will give you the Lunar Fortune buff… this gives you +250 health and is NOT ALLOWED.

Quests
All quests are allowed for all Challenges except  Blood Thirsty, even the quest that requires you to defeat Omen, although I’m not quite sure I’d recommend trying it… if you die, that’s it.

Coin of Ancestry Redemption
You can turn in your Coins of Ancestry for pets, toys, food, fireworks, and clothes.

Food
Festival Dumplings are ALLOWED. Good health/mana regeneration. Stock up on these.

Cosmetic
Festival DressesSuits & Crowns: NOT ALLOWED. These are all green-quality items and will flag your character.

 Blood Thirsty: You are ALLOWED to equip these since you can equip green gear.
 Green Man: All green event items ALLOWED for you.

Schematics & Patterns
Allowed for Pacifists only. You can buy these from Fariel Starsong to craft cluster & firework launchers as well as festival dresses and suits. Professions are NOT ALLOWED for all other challengers.
