Brewfest

Get your tankards ready, put on your Romance Goggles (while they’re still common quality!) and have some fun!  Brewfest will run from September 20 to October 6!

Quests: All lead-in, ram-racing and daily quests are allowed. Pacifists may not want to do ram-racing since you’re whipping the poor thing, but there will be nothing there to technically disqualify you.

Loot: Most of the white Bavarian gear has been turned to uncommon, so you can no longer equip it. There are a handful of items still remaining that are common (white) quality, however, you should be very cautious with these as they may turn uncommon (green) in a future patch. Your challenger will be flagged. You can cash in your Brewfest Prize Tokens for the Brewmaster title or add to your toy or pet collection.

Coren Direbrew: Since this is in a dungeon again this year, its not allowed for any challenger (Iron, Blood or Pacifist).

Brewfest Enthusiast: At 615am & 615pm, Mekkatorque and Saurfang issue speeches. Everyone nearby gets a 2-hour buff that grants +10% experience. This buff is NOT ALLOWED. If you happen to be in the area when the buff is applied, you can simply right-click it off.

Blood Thirsty Challengers: Overall, the event is centered around quests, which you are not allowed to do.

Pacifist Challengers: While you can do *some* quests, you should be very cautious as you may accidentally pick up proximity kills when the Dark Iron Dwarves attack.

With patch 7.2.5 a nice undocumented change that came in resulted in many holiday items that were previously Common (white) are now Uncommon (green). This has resulted in many challengers being red-flagged.

It is important that you remove the items from your character ASAP.

I’ve gone through to reset most flags, however, I don’t believe all characters will be updated to reflect the new uncommons that were equipped. I’ll be doing another pass tomorrow after our big nightly job is done and attempt to fix any new toons that get flagged again.

If you see your character incorrectly flagged, please let me know at Stone -AT- WoWChallenges.com. All I will need is your toon, realm, region and I can go have a look. When you send me your character information, please make sure you’ve already unequipped the gear so that you won’t be red-flagged again.

At first we thought this change only applied to Noblegarden cosmetic items, however, I’ve found cases of this applied to Brewfest and Pilgrim’s Bounty items. There are still cosmetic items that remain Common (white), however, based on this change I highly suggest you unequip any items that are marked “cosmetic” in case this happens again.
