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.

We’re pleased to announce that Mosotti has successfully reached 110 with his Blood Elf Hunter, known as Bikini Babe. This was Mosotti’s 6th attempt to get his BE to 110, over a span of about 40 days with 7 days of played time. You can read more about his adventures on the WoW Challenges forums where he describes the climb to 110.

He dedicates this victory to his patient wife and their newborn son.

Well done Mosotti!

Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday

Welcome to our first Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday. Factions compete Region-wide for the honour of hanging our banner at the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj. The event runs from January 21 through to January 24.

Quests: All quests are allowed, however, please be aware that some quests WILL flag you for PvP (picking up silithyst, for example).

Repeatable Food Quests: These are allowed, however, remember that you cannot get help from other characters, whether this means farming food materials or gold. Challengers can only use the resources that were earned on THAT specific character to complete these quests.

Level-scaling mobs: Caution and care are needed when venturing in here as the Twilight Cultists in the camps are now level-scaling. Basically the mobs will be at or one-level under your character. For most characters this should be fine, however, other classes might need to be more careful.
