Well it’s time of the year again, the valentines are filled out & perfume/cologne is abused.
This year is different though! The in-game world event for Love is in the Air received a major face-lift this year. We have a completely different system for the [Love Token] and the needed achievement items / vanity items. Many sites like WoW.com and MMO-Champ have laid out the details but it’s a good change to this holiday. You can now guarantee grabbing a Peddlefeet!
I’m actually not to worried about getting it complete on my alts with this nerf/change.
Here is a screenshot of the some of new content/quests:
Anyways, I made a short video clip of the new Love Boats that are available in various capital cities:
Well, today marks the end of 2009’s Midsummer Fire Festival (6/21 – 7/5).
I must say that I’m glad the festival is a whole two weeks. The start of my week-long family vacation this year was also the start of the festival in WoW. So the first thing I did when I arrived home last weekend was to go through and do the entire world event on my main character.
After completing [The Flame Warden] on my warlock I realized that he made at least 750g or more from doing the event! From there I thought about my two level 80 alts and how horrible there current titles (Jenkins & Stormwind) were.
So it began, I logged over to my DeathKnight the next day and started traveling the world to every bonfire, just like my main character did. After completing the event and earning Coldarra’s new title over the course of two days I then thought, “I made like 1000g and achieved a new title!”
It was time for the 2nd alt, Mazer then completed the event which I did in one day’s time. Unlike my other two level 80s, Mazer leveled a lot through instances so he had not traveled much of the world. So in the process of getting him a new title, I also picked up any flight paths he was missing. (DeathKnights are created with all Eastern Kingdoms & Kalimdor flight points with the exception of Ghostlands.)
So what did I do this week? I worked towards and completed [The Flame Warden] on three level 80s!
After four days, Uriahworld finally has his [Fool For Love] achievement complete! The part that most players have trouble with is the [Be Mine!] achievement because it’s a random item from the Gifts you can only obtain every hour. Blizzard acknowledged the low drop rate that many players had with the [Bag of Candies] and it was fixed in a hotpatch last Friday night.
Turned out to be an OK Valentine’s Day. I did a Molten Core clear that I’ll post about within a few days.
Been busy all of yesterday with the Love is in the Air Warcraft event.
I finished up almost half of the achievements needed for the [Fool For Love]. In all, I think I spent around 4 hours in the major cities to make 3 [Alliance Gift Collection]. The only achievement to really elude me so far is [Be Mine!] which is a random thing comparable to the Halloween mask achievement [A Mask for All Occasions].
The night ended with us finishing up Naxxramas for the week and then getting a two-shot kill on Malygos. That makes the 2nd week that my guild has killed Heroic Malygos.
