What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been


Well, right around this time last year I was starting to get into the holiday achievements. After the fun of the Fire Festival, with 2 easy dailies that all my toons could do, I started doing the Brewfest dailies. Those are the actual opposite of fun, when doing them with a lot of alts. If you click on the brewfest label for this post, you can see how much time and effort I put into them last year.

This year? Meh. Gwyddion on Daggerspine racked up 200 tokens, and got the Brew of the Month membership. I didn't bother going to 350 tokens, because she already had the Disturbing the Peace achievement from last year. I had gotten to 350 tokens, got the clothes, gotten drunk, and was racing the clock back to Ironforge to turn the clothes in and get the membership. Unfortunately, she didn't make it.

But..........I was able to pick up a little something extra for my main Bloodshrike. I wasn't comfortable trying to get into the PUG groups to kill Coren last year, but with the LFD tool this year, it's supremely easy to kill him daily. That completed my last requirement for this achievement, and got me my 90th mount, the 310% speed Violet Proto-Drake.

I also was able to get Brewmaster for Pallormortis, Bullkathos, and my soon to be 80's Banesidhe and Thrillkiller.

Doing the dailies netted me 5 tankards, a teleporter for Bullkathos and Bloodshrike, a dagger for Bull/Thrill/Blood/Pallor, a Kodo for Bull, and a Ram for Bull/Pallor....and Pallor again.
No luck for Bloodshrike. Random number generator iz random....

So on Demon Soul and Daggerspine, ALL toons now have either the Brewmaster title, or need to be high enough level to use the food/drink and kill Coren, and they'll have the title then. On Darrowmere, I'm just gonna wait until they're close enough to 78 to be able to kill Coren and get the one-time 40 token quest, then go from there. There's only 7 toons that I would have to do that with, so I'm happy to put it off.

Here's hoping I'll have better luck at Hallow's End.
