Very thorough and helpful…I was glad to get the details on timing so I can be on when the Dark Iron fight goes on…trying to get enough tokens to join Brew of the Month club! Also, I didn’t know how to do Direbrewfest, and learned that I cannot because I’m not high enough lvl. Something to look forward to in coming year!

Thanks for the effort…now if I could figure out why the daily ram ride keeps bugging out on me (reins disappear), and understand if it’s something I’m doing wrong, I’d be all set!

I love going for mounts and I was thinking maybe you could earn a Ram for completing the quests, or collecting a high number of tokens…but it looks like this isn’t possible? Just the items listed are available? And in that case, aside from the fun of the quests, is there really a larger picture reason for doing the Brewfest quest line?



There’s the achievements to collect, and if you collect the right achievements from all the world events during the year then there is Violet Proto-Drake you earn for the achievement What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been. There is also the chance to earn a Brewfest Ram or Kodo mount from the Coren Direbrew fight. I have both, but they only dropped for me on the 3rd year of trying!



Is it possible to enter the instance with a level 85 accompanied by level 90’s? I’ve been hearing obscure rumours that people have been doing this and I’m curious to see if they’re right.
