Just before fall, here in the northern hemisphere, MMORPGs are heading out for pumpkin spice… and Oktoberfest brew. That’s how it is with World of Warcraftwhich officially kicked off its long-running Brewfest celebration last night.
“Do you love eating delicious food, drinking copious amounts of beverages, and riding rams around barrels of apples?” Blizzard asks. (You do.) “Brewfest is here and you can do all that and more from September 20th to October 6th.” Notably, there is actually some new post-Dragonflight content in this year’s version of the event , where players outsmart their dragons.
“The Brewfest is coming to Dragonflight! Start a conversation with the Holiday Enthusiast in Valdrakken to begin the brewing festivities. In addition to the usual fun in Ironforge and Orgimmar, new Brewfest quests can be completed on the Dragon Islands, including one that lets you test your dragon riding skills. And what would Brewfest be without some great rewards? There are new items available at the merchant – the Orange Brewfest Bulwark sign customization and a safe ride home with the Brew Barrel toy.
There is also a Brewfest armor saddle for renewed proto-dragons. However, keep in mind that you probably won’t get one, as it’s a rare drop from Coren Direbrew that you can only defeat once per day.
