Holiday Guide: Brewfest

New readers: Think your Brewfest quests may be bugged? This guide was made before Brewfest went live, but I've put up a new post with the latest updates on Brewfest bugs and hotfixes.

Brewfest is a new holiday event in World of Warcraft that will run October 2-16th. Based on the German Oktoberfest tradition, Brewfest quests can be completed for tickets, which may be exchanged for Bavarian-style costumes, collectible steins, and even a ram mount, which will be highly desirable to Horde players. This guide provides a quick breakdown of the Brewfest quests and repeatable dailies to help you get your new mount, non-combat pet, and eyesight-enhancing goggles. For more information and screenshots, you might want to check out MMO-Champion's Brewfest guide.

Where do I go?
Most of the quests are located in Durotar for Horde or Kharanos for Alliance. There are also Brewfest beer gardens located outside Silvermoon City, Darnassus, Undercity, Stormwind, Thunder Bluff, the Exodar, and Shattrath.

Brewfest Events
Dark Iron Dwarf Attacks
Dark Iron dwarves will try to steal the Brewfest Kegs every hour on the half hour. Pick up a Complimentary Brewfest Sampler by targeting target one of the Barkers from any brewery and /waving. He'll toss you a sampler, which you can then drink. Once it's empty, chuck the empty mug at a marauding dwarf. Each Dark Iron attacker you hit will earn you a stacking buff (up to 25). Talk to the Brewfest Rewards vendor to be rewarded with a ticket for each dwarfs you hit.

Brewfest Quests
Catch the Wild Wolpertinger
Wolpertingers are invisible jackalope-like creatures. Essentially we're talking a rabbit with antlers, wings, and a set of tiny fangs. This quest will reward you with your own Wolpertinger Tankard, which houses an adorable noncombat pet that is only visible to you or to characters who are drunk. To catch the wild wolpertingers, first drink enough to get your character totally wasted. You'll have several seconds of "completely smashed" to target the wolpertinger before you need to drink more to be able to see it. Then use the provided net to ensnare the wee beasties. Tip: to see the wolpertinger more clearly, you might want to go into your video settings and temporarily turn off the drunk effect by switching off full screen glow.

Now This is Ram Racing... Almost
Learn how to ram race with this quest. (Tip: if you drop the Ram Racing Reins, you can replace them by talking to the apprentice standing next to the quest dude.) Your ram steed has four speeds, but can get fatigued if you make him run too fast for too long. Keep an eye on your ram's Fatigue debuff -- if it gets to 100, you'll have to stop for 15 seconds. Keep clicking the reins to shift between speeds. You can also run your ram by an apple bucket to remove the debuffs. After you complete this quest, you can then do the quest There And Back Again, followed by the ram racing daily quest. Update: Wowinsider is reporting that these quests can actually be done once every 12 hours, so I guess that makes them "twice dailies?"

Did Someone Say, "Souvenir?"

Turn in your voucher and receive a Brewfest Stein from the festival greeter. You can refill your mug from the kegs throughout the grounds.

Pink Elekks on Parade
Pick this up at the main festival grounds, along with Catch the Wild Wolpertinger. For this quest, you'll have to travel to each of the three other festival beer gardens for Alliance or Horde, get drunk, and chase off the aforementioned Pink Elekks. This quest has now been fixed so that everyone can pick it up, and rewards you with 40 tickets.

Seek the Saboteurs

After a Dark Iron Dwarf attack, you may notice a set of Dark Iron Sabotage Plans on the ground. Loot them, and you'll get this quest to find Coren Direbrew in the Grim Guzzler in BRD. He's hiding in the bar behind the plans seller. Reward: Dark Iron Tankard (a level 54 off-hand which you can drink from).

Brewfest Daily Quests
There and Back Again
This is a delivery quest with a build-in time limit. Pick up the quest at the festival grounds, and you'll be given a racing ram. Head into the nearby town (Kharanos or Durotar) and grab a keg from the NPC standing next to the stack of barrels. Run your ram back to the festival and drop off the keg. The first time you do this quest, you have to deliver three kegs in four minutes, which will earn you 15 Brewfest prize tickets. After that, the quest will give you five tickets for each keg you deliver in the time allotted, with bonus time added every time you deliver a keg. You should be able to get 40-50 tickets a day this way, once you get the hang of the ram. If you're looking for some more help getting started with your ram, I've written some additional ram riding tips.

Bark for the Barleybrews!Thunderbrews/T'chali's Voodoo Brewery/Drohn's Distillery!
These repeatable quests require you to take a ram to the four Brewfest flags (the ones with the big mugs on them) in Ironforge or Orgrimmar and promote a given brew. Since these quests were bugged on the PTRs, it's unclear whether you can complete the quest for both of the rival brewers, or if you have to pick one. You can only bark for one faction each day, and the quest is on a four minute timer.

Brewfest Rewards
600 tickets - "Honorary Brewer" Hand Stamp
This stamp certifies you as an official Brewfest ram rider, allowing you to purchase both the normal level 40 Brewfest Ram (for 10g) or the Swift Brewfest Riding Ram (100g). The mounts are permanent, and are the same for both Horde and Alliance.
100 tickets - Eyesight Enhancing Romance Goggles ("Guaranteed to make EVERYONE look attractive!")
Equip these goggles, and you'll view every character or NPC you meet as either a gnome (Alliance) or orc (Horde). Sadly, the goggles have a 7 day duration.
Other, less awesome things to redeem your tickets for: Brewfest Pony Keg, Brewfest hats, Brewfest regalia, various food & drinks.

I was at my office and thought it would be good to read up on the brewfest quests. Thanks for the information.

I would have gone to MMO-Champion but I knew that might look bad to my co-workers. Your blog however doesn't look all 'gamey'.

Andor said...

very nice guide, thank you for this!
also there some other interesting posts aswell, im gonna be a daily visitor!

oldgamer said...

Hi there, nice guide and nice blog! You got a new fan in Europe, I live not far from Muenich's Octoberfest and I tell you I know Wolperdingers in real life ! I put a link to your blog on mine ;-)

Sevus!

Thanks all for the compliments! Now that the Fest is actually live, I've updated this guide to reflect the changes from the PTRs, as well as some extra tips on things like how to get a Brewfest sampler to throw at the Dark Iron attackers. Thanks for stopping by!

sharon said...

Thanks for this. I have been unable to tap any beer out of the large kegs tho. I originally received a empty stein, but it has disappeared and I can't get another one. Is this a bug?

Laura said...

@sharon - I'm not sure about that particular issue, but Wowinsider today reports that they're hotfixing several bugs with these quests today and tomorrow. Hopefully that'll fix it for you.

Rotundra said...

I'm just so happy to have found this blog! Thanks to you I know that this brewfest presents an opportunity to get yet another pet. I've been waiting for the Darkmoon Faire with my dark ale in hand (or hoof) so I could get a Jubjub. A wolperdinger will tide me over just fine!
Thanks for making this blog!

Michael said...

The Pink Elekks on Parade quest was offered to me on my level 70 character, so it is not solely available to low-level characters. The quest reward for this was also listed as 40 tickets, not 75.

ChaoticFayth said...

I can't seem to find out how exactly to promote the brews in the "Bark for the Barleybrews" quest.

SonofMoag said...

With the barking for the breweries, I get to all the places, but am still listed as failing. Do you have to get BACK to the brewery in the alotted time? If so, it's almost impossible.

BobM said...

Yes, you do have to get back to the quest giver in the 4 min. That includes talking to him and clicking the 'complete' button. I agree, its pretty hard (5 tries for me). Keep the speed up, but watch the counter so you don't get the exhausted debuff.

Prost!
Bob M

L said...

@Rotundra - Enjoy your wolpertinger!
@Michael - Yup, it looks like they've hotfixed Pink Elekks so that anyone can pick it up now. I've updated the guide accordingly; thanks for letting me know about the ticket change, too.
@ChaoticFayth - When the "Bark For..." quests are working properly, your character will automatically emote every time you pass a Brewfest flag. Unfortunately, they seem to be bugged for almost everyone right now. I've put up a new post about Brewfest bugs and hotfixes, but I'll keep updating as we get more info.
@SonofMoag and BobM - Four minutes is pretty short, and I've heard it's worse for Horde (makes sense - Orgrimmar is HUGE). One thing I've heard you can do is click off the racing ram and switch to your own mount after you complete the four objectives, and then race back at epic mount speed. Also, Alliance should keep in mind that you can jump off the road down to the Brewfest grounds without dying, instead of riding all the way down the hill.
Thanks everyone for stopping by and commenting, and let's hope Brewfest gets fixed soon!

SonofMoag said...

It is worse for Horde. I can get out of Org with just 40 seconds left. by the time I get back to the questgiver, I have two second to click on him and the complete quest button. I did it finally but their is NO margin for error. And that to me seems unreasonable for 40 tickets. For a hundred yes, but forty, no.

Hi! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.

Does building a well-established website like yours require
a large amount of work? I'm completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my
experience and views online. Please let me know
if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

Appreciate it!

I do not leave a response, but after browsing through a bunch
of comments here "Holiday Guide: Brewfest". I actually do have
some questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or do a few of these responses come across like they are coming
from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like
to keep up with you. Could you post a list of all of all your shared pages like your
