3d-Love-Heart-Transparent-BackgroundThe Love is in the Air world event starts tomorrow, February 15, and will run through until February 29 (yes, this year is a leap year). We go over the WoWHead.com Love is in the Air Guide and let you know what’s allowed for your Challengers.

Quests: All quests are okay to do except for Blood Thirsty challengers.

Lovely Cards: The Lovely Cards (example: Lovely Undercity Card) are NOT allowed as they provide stat buffs for your character.

Love Tokens: These can be spent on a number of things, however, please keep in mind that the Box of Chocolates and anything that is a Cologne or Perfume are NOT allowed as they provide you buffs.

Dresses & Suits: There are white-quality dresses and suits that can be equipped, so these are fair game for your Challengers. No need to worry about equipping an item and getting flagged for it.

Apothecary Hummel: NOT ALLOWED as this counts as a dungeon. You’ll need to use your regular characters for your chance at the Big Love Rocket.

Collecting Charms: You’re allowed to collect charms for achievements if you want except Pacifists as the Lovely Charms require you to land the killing blow to receive the charm.

 

ichingThe Lunar Festival begins today (Feb.1) and runs through to February 15. Gong Hey Fat Choy (Lai See Dou Loi)!

There are no real big changes between 2015 and 2016 BUT there are some things that all Challengers will need to watch out for and/or take advantage of. The source of this information is from the WoWHead.com Lunar Festival Guide.

Honouring Elders: You can absolutely go and 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.

Lunar Fortune Buff: In each of the envelopes you will receive either a Lucky Rocket Cluster or 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, 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.

Festival Dumplings: Allowed. Good health/mana regeneration. Stock up on these.
Festival Dresses and Suits: Allowed. They are all White-Quality equippable gear.
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.
