My favorite WoW holiday

This is entry #11 in the 30 days of WarCraft series of articles.

Those of you who are regulars around here can probably guess the answer to this one…

Yep! You got it… Brewfest!

In fact, Brewfest is probably the only holiday I really get into. I love the whole atmosphere of Brewfest — the music, the revelry, the… brew!

I’m such a fan of Brewfest that a few years back I made a 29 twink hunter named, Pilsner. My plan was to deck him out in full Brewfest regalia – starting each BG in character. I had him all planned out, creating him a few weeks before Brewfest, then religiously knocking out the dailies so I could get the cool Brewfest duds.

I made him back before heirlooms existed, and before no-experience was an option. He was perfect. He was geared to the tits — and with me being a pretty experienced hunterer — he used to melt faces in WSG and AB. In fact, by the time he was fully geared and ready for BGs, it was almost boring he was so good.

Because of this, I’d often just leave him in his lederhosen for the duration of the BG. It was great… my 29 dwarf running around like one of the Ricola guys, toting that beastly Nesingwary quest gun and an Archeus with Savagery on it – just wrecking the horde.

Unfortunately, I ended up deleting Pilsner back when Blizzard ruined twinking, but his memory and his screenshots live on..!

Here he is with his trusty sidekick, DANZIG.


So there ya have it… Brewfest! I’m all about it.

  1. I would have to go with Hallow’s End. I love the whole atmosphere of the event. The Horseman has some great lines as well.

  2. I agree, but I also have to say I still have not been able to get the Headless Horseman. I really like theater of it all.

  3. Brewfest, as well! Hands down.

    I have been known to have a Guinness or two while playing, but you can bet your pet that during Brewfest drinking while playing (not all the time and certainly not to excess) is a certainty. I literally feel like I’ve entered the atmosphere of the game and the festivity.

    Is it realistic? No.

    Is it crazy? Yes.

    Is it fun as fun can be at the time? Oh hellz yeah!
