It's that time of the year again! Yes, it's my favourite world event, Brewfest, at least for the next few days. And how could you not love a world event whose principal themes are beer and sausages.
I've got in the beers, fried up some sausages, and got ready for some serious ram racing, barking, boss farming and chucking-steins-at-Dark Irons. I really miss the Pink Elekk and Wolpertinger hunts from last years, and was suspicious that they'd be removed because they were the events that actually forced you to get drunk, but apparently it was just because of a bug, and they'll be back next year. So I can stop being a uspicious, if tipsy, Nelf.
However, the Dark Iron invasions are working like clockwork, and are by far my favourite part of the event at the moment. Characters of all levels, drinking anc hcuking steins at invading dawrves is just an insanely fun way to spend 10 minutes, especially as your screen gets more and more blurred the longe it goes on… Look out for the giant beer mugs that turn you into a drunken master for a few seconds.
I got Leafy her entire Brewfest outfit last year, including the pony keg, so this year, I'm just aiming for the Beer of the Month club, while working on getting some of my alts geared up. Pictures to follow.
However, last night we assembled a party of Ravens to head off to BRD and take down Coren Direbrew. Again. And Again. And Again. On our third kill, he dropped the Direbrew Hops, to make me a very happy Leafy. Just one piece of gear left to replace and I'm full Epic...
But I wasn't nearly as happy as Blayse, a gnome mage of my acquaintance:
Yes, wee Blayse won a Brewfest Kodo, which dropped for us on the same kill. Gnomes. Kodos. It just works.
