Lunar Festival 2022

Those dressed as dragons are sure to delight, let’s honor our elders and put up a good fight. The year of the Tiger has pounced in! It’s time to let the fun begin!

This year’s Lunar Festival begins on January 30th and will wrap up on February 13th. For a complete overview of this event please feel free to review Wowhead.com’s guide.

New for 2022
At this time there does not appear to be any new updates for 2022 that will affect any of our challengers. If any are brought to our attention we will update you.

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. This activity is ALLOWED and¬†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!

Food
Festival Dumplings are 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 though.

Cosmetics, Pets, & Toys
The Coins of Ancestry that you receive from the elders can be used to purchase items from the event’s vendors located in Moonglade. While you are ALLOWED to acquire the special items from this event’s vendors please remember to follow your gear rules, remove any buffs toys may give you, and participating in pet battles is NOT ALLOWED.

Pacifist

– The quest Elune’s Blessing asks you to defeat the demon Omen. While you are NOT ALLOWED to participate in his demise, you do not have to get kill credit to complete this quest. Based on comments on WoWHead 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 the Elune’s Blessing buff ASAP! Please be mindful there will be LOTS of other players around and there will be a greater risk of getting a prox kill. You will want to use extreme caution if you attempt this quest. Just because a quest is allowed does not mean it is a good idea to do it.
