Achievement Hunter : Brewfest
Want to start achievement hunting? Not sure where to begin? Not a problem! Each week Phoenixsting will go over some achievement hunting, with tips on where to begin.
Ah Brewfest, it’s that special time of year where we get to partake in the largest virtual beer festival in the world. Brewfest has 10 achievements to complete over a two and a half week period. Six of these achievements count towards the Meta-Achievement Brewmaster, which awards the title Brewmaster and counts towards the Meta-Achievement, What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been.
Brew of the Year & Brew of the Month (Meta required)
Brew of the year & Brew of the Month are two achievements that you will get when you purchase the Brew of the month club membership form. You can purchase this from the Brewfest vendors for 200 Brewfest prize tokens. When you purchase the membership you will receive the Brew of the Month achievement. Once you have the membership you will receive a sample of brew mailed to you on the first of every month. Once you have sampled all 12 brews you will be awarded the Brew of the Year achievement. Luckily you only need the Brew of the Month achievement for the Meta-Achievement.
Down with the Dark Iron (Meta required)
I recommend doing this achievement as soon as possible. It will require you to defend the Brewfest area from the attacks of the Dark Iron Dwarfs. They will attack every 30 mins. You will need several people at the Brewfest to help you complete this achievement as it is extremely hard if not impossible to do it by yourself.
Direbrewfest (Meta required)
To complete this achievement you must travel to Black Rock Depths and taunt Coren Direbrew into fighting you. This is a lot easier this year due to the dungeon finder tool. Just open it up and select holiday events and que up for the Brewfest one. Once inside you can speak with Coren to start the event. Once you complete it you have a chance at some nice loot that includes a mount and and epic mace.
This one you can complete the same way you did the going down achievement. Just make sure you are drunk while doing it. You can find my guide here:
Have Keg, Will Travel (Meta required)
The easiest way to obtain this one is to purchase some Fresh Brewfest Hops for 2 tokens and use them on one of your mounts, otherwise you can always hope to win the mount in your daily attempts at the boss.
The Brewfest Diet (Meta required)
This one is one of the easiest ones to get, all you have to do is purchase and eat all of the food available from the Brewfest vendors. It will cost you about 20 silver and 68 copper to purchase the foods you need. You will need to be level 75 or above to consume all of the foods.
Strange Brew is similar to the Brewfest diet, except you need to purchase and consume the wonderful brews of the festival. Again there are some drinks that you can’t consume unless you are level 75.
Does Your Wolpertinger Linger? (Meta required)
To obtain this funny little companion you have to complete the quest called Catch the Wild Wolpertinger. This quest starts with Goldark Snipehunter for the Alliance or Glodrak Huntsniper for the Horde.
Disturbing the Peace
This is another one that I recommend to aim to do early. You will have to save up 350 tokens to purchase the festival cloths from the vendor. Once you have done that just head on over to Dalaran and dance baby dance!
So what part of Brewfest are you looking forward to the most?
