his week starts the rare triple combo of holidays. We're in the 2nd week of the lunar festival,
today starts the Love is in the Air holiday, and this week the Darkmoon Island is open for inspection.
Should be a busy week for everyone. Not a lot changed with the Love is in the Air event. Only major change is that there is a mount available, the [Swift Lovebird] for 270 [Love Tokens]. This should spur continual sales during the event.
Thankfully for the goblins in all of us, the [Lovely Charm Bracelet] are again BOE this year so look to sell these either through trade chat or on the AH. Grab a [Lovely Charm Collector's Kit] on all of your questing and raiding/instance alts. They do drop in PVP as well, but you have to get the kill shot to get credit for the charm.
Every year the Blizzard powers that be tend to tweak the drop rates when someone finds a very nice
farming spot. So keep an eye for good farming spots, especially if you have finished the opening to
the fireland dailies. Craft or purchase a [Potion of Treasure Finding] and run do some farming in the cataclysm areas. My suggestion if your at level 85 is going to be based around Mount Hyjal, up and down the area close to the Sanctuary of Malorne. Mobs die quickly and large amount of fire volatiles drops.
Lower levels want to look for large amount of mobs that can be killed quickly. The wrath expansion areas still have many mobs that are within "level appropriate" to get drops of the charms. Other professions such as skinning might find the twilight highlands area a good option to skin the dragons for raw materials. Leather is still selling at a premium on many servers. If you stay withing 2-4 levels of mobs you are killing you should continue to get the drops for the charms you need to make the bracelets.
Here is a link to Wowinsder for their overachievers guide to the entire holiday. Keep an eye here for any updates we have as all three holidays continue. Also please post comments on your suggested farming spots.
Don't forget to have your [Darkmoon Adventure's Guide] for dungeon and raid instances for drops of the rare tomes and items to turn in for Darkmoon Faire tokens.
All this going on is going to keep people busy for the week.
Good luck and good hunting
[Addendum 12:07] Looks like the bracelets aren't able to be placed on the AH. so trade chat is the only [option]
