World Events

The druids have gathered and Moonglade is aglow. Those dressed as dragons are sure to delight, let’s honor our elders and put up a good fight. 2020 is the Year of the Rat so grab some cheese and settle in for this year’s fun is about to begin! This year’s Lunar Festival begins on January 24th and will wrap up on February 7th. For a complete overview of the event please feel free to review WoWHead.com’s guide.

New for 2020
There is a new quest chain available this year for those that want to make their flower crowns transmogable year-round. The Lunar Preservation quest chain is a bit involved. While you can pick up this quest chain at pre-flight levels, from what our testers are saying it will be extremely difficult without it. At some of the moonwell locations you’ll need to visit there could be some mobs you’ll need to deal with as well. Overall looks like a fun questline but perhaps not exactly challenger friendly and might be best left to your regular characters.

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

Quests
All of the quests for this event are ALLOWED. That being said there are a few things to make note of:
– The quest Elune’s Blessing asks you to defeat the demon Omen. This is a dangerous endeavor for challengers and just because a quest is allowed does not always mean it is a good idea. You are NOT ALLOWED to group up with others to complete this quest. Based on comments on WoWHead you do not need to get kill credit to complete this quest. After he dies you can get close to or stand on his corpse and you should be able to get Elune’s Blessing to complete the quest. Once this quest is turned in you need to remove Elune’s Blessing ASAP!

– The Lunar Preservation questline may be better left to non-challenge characters.

Honor Thy Elders
Scattered throughout Azeroth you’ll come across elders of years gone by. You can honor them simply by talking to them. In return, you’ll receive a Lucky Red Envelope and a Coin of Ancestry along with some experience points. Remember that you may need to locate Zidormi and ask her to turn back time in order to interact with some elders depending on your level as some zones have phasing changes at key levels. This activity is ALLOWED. WoWHead has you covered with a list of Elder locations which you can find here.

Inside the Lucky Red Envelopes, you’ll find an Elder’s Moonstone or a Lucky Rocket Cluster. The Elder’s Moonstone has no bells or whistles and is ALLOWED. The Lucky Rocket Clusters are another matter. Setting these rockets off in the rocker cluster launchers will give you the Lunar Fortune buff which is NOT ALLOWED. Please be aware that if you are within 20 yards of someone setting this rocket off the buff will be applied to you. Should this happen it needs to be removed ASAP!

Cosmetics, Pets, & Toys
The Coins of Ancestry that you have received from the elders can be used to purchase items from the event’s vendors located in Moonglade. You are ALLOWED to obtain all of the pets and toys. Please remember that while you are allowed to acquire the pets you are NOT ALLOWED to participate in any pet battles. As far as cosmetic items are concerned please remember to follow your gear rules.

Festival Dumplings are also available from the vendors in Moonglade. This special treat will restore both health and mana and does not have any buffs so these are very challenger friendly. You will need Coins of Ancestry to purchase them.

The halls have been decked, and garlands abound. The excitement is building all around. Great Father Winter will bring gifts that delight! We’ll feast and be merry and have snowball fights! We’ll gather together as we sit by the fire, regaling stories and sharing hot apple cider.

The Feast of Winter Veil has begun and will run through 6 AM on January 2nd. WoWHead has a full overview of the event which can be found here.

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

New for 2019
There are a couple of new things this year. One of those being A Tiny Winter Hat. This item is obtained by visiting the Smokeywoods Pastures cart in either Ironforge or Orgrimmar and clicking on Pepe. As of this moment, the item is not on the live servers but an official Blizzard post said it was new this year. Perhaps it will get hot fixed at some point during the event. At this time, this item has NOT been tested. If this item does get added in during the event, consider it NOT ALLOWED until we’ve had the chance to test it. Once tested we’ll update the post on the final answer.

Another new thing added in this year is sleigh rides around Ironforge and Orgrimmar. You can find the sleighs near where Greatfather Winter is located. It looks like you can ride in the sleigh or on one of the stags pulling it. No buffs are incurred and this is just a fun, silly holiday activity. This is ALLOWED.

Quests & Daily Quests
There are several quests and daily quests available during this event that you are allowed to complete. While you are allowed to complete them here are a few things to make note of:
– The quests Treats for Great-father Winter(H) and Treats for Greatfather Winter(A) involve cooking. You are NOT ALLOWED to learn cooking for this quest, however, you can buy the gingerbread cookies needed off the Auction House if any have been listed. The milk can be bought from vendors.
– The quests You’re a Mean One…(H) and You’re a Mean One…(A) involve retrieving Stolen Treats from The Abominable Greench. Once he has been slain the stolen goods spawn at the entrance of his cave. You do NOT need to kill the Greench in order to be able to snag the gifts when they spawn in. It is recommended that challengers keep a safe distance from this boss as there is a good chance he’ll one-shot your challenger. This quest may only be available to players level 60 and up as indicated by a post from Blizzard.

For challengers that have upgraded their garrisons to level 3 and are level 100 or higher, an additional 4 holiday daily quests will become available. These can be picked up in your garrisons from either Almie(A) or Pizzle(H).
– The quest Grumpus involves killing him and you must tag him to get credit. This quest may be too dangerous to bother with. When in doubt, scout it out.

Warlords Savage Gift
The Savage Gift is obtained from Izzy Hollyfizzle who is located in your level 3 garrison. The gift can be purchased for 5 Merry Supplies and may contain the following items:
Apexis Crystals
Oil
Garrison Resources

Catching Greatfather Winter
At Highmountain Peak in the Highmountain zone, you can find a Highmountain Tauren version of Greatfather Winter.

When you catch up with him, he’ll award you 500 Order Resources.

This quest may only be available to players level 60 and up as indicated by a post from Blizzard.

For challengers that have upgraded their garrisons to level 3 and are level 100 or higher, an additional 4 holiday daily quests will become available. These can be picked up in your garrisons from either Almie(A) or Pizzle(H).
– The quest Grumpus involves killing him and you must tag him to get credit. This quest may be too dangerous to bother with. When in doubt, scout it out.
– The Elixir of the Rapid Mind which has a chance to be contained in the Savage Gift is NOT ALLOWED.

You are ALLOWED to catch Greatfather Winter in Highmountain. Doing so will award 500 Order Resources.

You are ALLOWED to take a sleigh ride around Ironforge or Orgrimmar.

At this time the new item A Tiny Winter Hat has yet to be added to the live servers. This item is NOT ALLOWED until we can test it if/when it gets implemented. We will update the status of this item at that time.

While you are ALLOWED to open your gifts from Greatfather Winter, that does not mean you can use everything you receive. You are NOT ALLOWED to use the following:
Mechanical Greench
– Winter Veil Cookie

Schematic: Snowmaster 9000 *Sidenote: While you are NOT ALLOWED to learn the schematic, all toys are ALLOWED to be used at the player’s risk. When in doubt, scout it out.
Formula: Enchant Weapon – Winter’s Might
Recipe: Elixir of Frost Power
Plans: Edge of Winter
Pattern: Green Holiday Shirt
Pattern: Gloves of the Greatfather

The following festive items can be obtained during this event by /kissing a winter reveler once an hour and are ALLOWED. These revelers can be found in the inns:
Fresh Holly
Handful of Snowflakes
Mistletoe(see below)
The Mistletoe is the main item you need to be careful with here. When used on another player it places a spirit buff on them. It does not look like you can place this on yourself however should another player use this on you remove it immediately since the buff is NOT ALLOWED.

No holiday is complete without some special treats though being a challenger can come with some dietary restrictions. The following treats provide buffs that are NOT ALLOWED:
Gingerbread Cookie
Fizzy Apple Cider
Honeyed Holiday Ham
Hot Apple Cider
Sparkling Apple Cider
Winter Veil Egg Nog
The Winter Veil Eggnog (no space) is a different item and is 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.

Blood Teams
This holiday revolves around quests that are NOT ALLOWED. All that mob grinding has landed you on Greatfather Winter’s naughty list.

Classic Iron
While we are still not able to track Classic Irons just yet, for those interested, the Feast of Winter Veil is running through January 2nd on classic servers. WoWHead has compiled a guide for the Classic version of the Feast of Winter Veil, which can be found here. Most of the quests look pretty straight forward and fairly similar if not the same as some of the quests available for the retail version of the event. If you are attempting any of the holiday quests on your Irons in Classic just remember to review the rough rule set we have on the site before getting started and when in doubt feel free to ask us for clarification.

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. This pet can be put in a cage though so you might luck out and find it on the auction house.  As far as cosmetic items are concerned just follow the gear rules for your challenge.

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. Take the portal to Caverns of Time from your faction’s main city. 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. You can use this portal at level 1. Once you get to the bottom of the cavern stand in front of Chromie and turn to your right. Travel a little ways around the circle and you’ll come across them. The trivia question is a daily quest once again!

Battleground: Alterac Valley of Olde
A new event for this year’s anniversary celebration is a version of the Alterac Valley battleground. This sounds like a lot of fun for your mains and alts but battlegrounds are NOT ALLOWED for your challenger.

“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.

 

Candy
You are ALLOWED to obtain Tricky Treats since they are used as currency to acquire special items available from the event vendors. You are NOT ALLOWED to consume them or the Hallow’s End candy as they grant buffs to your character.

Headless Horseman DungeonThe Scarlet Monastery dungeon encounter with the Headless Horseman is NOT ALLOWED. Solo Irons are not permitted to do dungeons.

Masks & Wands
Masks are NOT ALLOWED as some will give you a stat buff so best to just avoid them altogether. Wands are NOT ALLOWED due to the fact you need to group up with others to use the item.

Cosmetics, Pets & Toys
You are ALLOWED to obtain all of the pets and toys. Please remember that while you are allowed to pick up the pets are you NOT ALLOWED to take part in any pet battles. You will also need to remove any buffs the toys may give you. As far as cosmetic items are concerned just follow your gear rules.

Tin Man:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are ALLOWED.
– The apples from the Apple Bobbing barrels are ALLOWED.

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.
– 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.

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.
– The Brewfest Enthusiast buff is NOT ALLOWED.

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.
