Brewfest Dailies

Brewfest Ram RouteYesterday I headed back over to Ironforge during my daily hour where I usually complete my Argent Tournament quests as well as jewelcrafting and random dungeon. When I got there I was shocked to only find 2 daily quests and even more shocked that it was actually only 1 but available from 2 people, so one of them disappeared when you completed the other.
Fortunately the dark iron dwarf attack is also a daily but thats only 25 tokens, bit of a let down after getting 125 in the first day :P. Anyway one of my guildies mentioned the Ram delivery quest is actually repeatable every 18 hours it just doesnt have a quest marker. Sure enough I popped over and was able to give it a shot but only managed to grab a couple of tokens from about 3-4 runs. Once I found out he made 21 runs I set out to get some tips.
Over on WoWWiki they have a chunk of text about getting the most out of your run, I’ll try and put it into simple steps but you can always pop over there for more information.

  • Use apple barrels – Follow the route on the right, passing apple barrels resets your fatigue so you can run at top speed 100% of the time.
  • Make your course changes quick – Aim your camera with your mouse then click to flip your character round as soon as you pickup/drop off a barrel.
  • Jump… alot – If you jump while galloping you will be flying through the air at top speed but only use Canter fatigue.
  • Learn and Improve – Every time you get your run faster it will mean more tokens, don’t worry if you mess up as it just takes practice.

I didn’t know about any of these tips, I used to just canter the whole way until I was close to 100 fatigue then just trot til it went down. Hopefully my run tonight will next me alot more than 6 tokens.

Weekend Update

I haven’t blogged much over the last few days but I’ve been busy busy on WoW. We’ll start with friday night, my guilds ICC25 alt run where they take undergeared characters such as my mage, Wizzam. Last week I was lucky enough to grab a heroic ring and necklace, this run I got my hands on a Vanquishers mark of Santification, which coupled with the 108 frost collection I reached after the run I was able to buy the Bloodmage Robe and instantly upgrade to Sanctified Bloodmage Robe before gemming and enchanting. I also managed to get my hands on Shoulders of Mercy Killing, so again not a bad week 🙂 a few steps closer to being strong enough to take down LK.

Also this weekend I got round to making a new alt. I went for a paladin and named him Rommli. We did a little leveling on the Friday before my raid and some more on the Sunday. Have only managed level 21 from a few quests and Deadmine runs, but in no hurry as I have til Cata to get him to 60 which shouldn’t take too long. As well as levelling him, I eventually gave my Deathknight another shot and got him from 56-60, slowly tidying all my characters up to at least 60.

Finally to round my weekend off I caught the start of Brewfest. I’m not really that bothered about getting all the world events on all my characters so Wizzam is going to taking this on. I’ve decided trying to raid with 2 characters isn’t really that viable so Tynee is going to get shelved from now til sometime in Cata. Wizzam will become my end-game character as he was in TBC where as Tynee will become my PvP character to spend most of his time in Battlegrounds and ganking PvE’ers waiting for dungeons.
Back to Brewfest, I was quite surprised that me and a couple of my friends managed to do all the achievements within about 30mins as most events take quite a while. The only one I have left is the dance in Dalaran and brew of the month/year which will only take a few days farming the tokens. I am hoping for the Kodo mount, and fingers crossed I get as lucky as this guy on the first day [image]. I already have the Halloween achievements on Wizzam so come October he’s going to get a little bored but I’ll be able to spend time on my other characters cleaning up their levels and professions in preparation for Cataclysm.
