It may come to no surprise to the Iron Man community, but Lyssan has become the first Battle for Azeroth Iron Man Champion on his Night Elf Priest. Completing the task with a /played time of thirty days and ten hours, with the journey from 110 to 120 taking roughly five to six days.

When asked if he had any near-death experiences from 110-120, Lyssan said “No, it was pretty uneventful. I had to Shadow Meld a couple of times but I wasn’t in immediate danger of dying. 110-120 is doable but you need a lot of patience, even more than before.”

His main advice for Iron challengers in Battle for Azeroth is “Stay in Legion for as long as you can. I moved to BfA at 114.5, and there is a lot of doable content in BfA, especially in Tiragarde Sound.”

Lyssan has crafted a longer post on the WoW Challenges forums with details and recommendations for taking on Battle for Azeroth leveling. You can view the post here: Lyssan-leveling from 110 to 120|WoW Challenges Forums

Congratulations once again, Lyssan, on becoming our first Battle for Azeroth Iron Man Champion!

Co-Authored with Ster. 

Congratulation to Ferreilean on becoming our third Battle for Azeroth Pacifist Champion!

Starting her Druid back in March of 2013, it took Ferre approximately 2,028 days to reach max level (a /played time of 18 days). Ferre likes to use Archeology to help level her Pacifists as we well know from the last time she was on the show for Ep. 130 “Ferre Digs It”. Ferreilean is her first character to obtain the title of Professor!

Level 115 brought a heart-stopping moment when flying to Southern Barrens. She got too close to a Horde camp and was shot at in the air. Ferre did manage to get away but her screen was flashing red and she ended up flagged for PvP.

When asked what’s next, Ferre said she has an Iron Druid at level 111 and that she’ll be working on that.

Congratulations once again Ferre and good luck on your Iron!

Ster joins us this week to share with us a boat-load of BFA tips and tricks!  We talk about the Virtual Ticket gifting changes, Con Before the Storm panels that Leeta and Stone are both participating in, Harvest Festival and Brewfest! As always we cover the State of the Challengers; Leeta & Stone review their weeks into the challenges; We read your comments, feedback and answer your questions.

Reminder: We no longer have a “CLEAN” tag.

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

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, it’s not allowed for any challenger (Iron, Tin, Green, Blood or Pacifist).

Brewfest Enthusiast: At 6:15 am & 6:15 pm, 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.

For a full run-down of Brewfest, you can visit WoWHead’s Guide: http://www.wowhead.com/brewfest-guide

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask us on Discord, our forums, or on Twitter: @WoWChallenges.

This year’s Harvest Festival has started and will run through September 25th.

The Harvest Festival basically has one quest that leads you to honor a hero. Alliance characters are sent from Ironforge to Uther’s Tomb in Western Plaguelands, while Horde characters are sent from Orgrimmar to Grom’s Monument in Ashenvale.

This is actually a great opportunity to grab some nice food (granting 4% health and mana per second) and is accessible without needing to complete the quest. This food will scale with your level… STOCK UP NOW!

This quest is okay for Irons, Tins, Greens, and Pacifists. Sorry Blood Thirsty challengers no love for you here as a quest is involved, best to just grab a snack and be on your way.

Per0tin joins us again to talk about his latest challenge adventures and ask for advice on whether he should do Blood Thirsty or Pacifist first.
