    Brewfest 2019
    Brewfest is back again with item level 395 trinkets! This year the event runs from September 20 to October 6. As with many of the holiday events, this one was changed to allow you to queue at a lower level.

    If you are still leveling alts, don't forget to grab the Brewfest Enthusiast buff at 6:15 AM and 6:15 PM PDT outside of Ironforge and Orgrimmar at the Tapping of the Keg ceremony.


    What's New in 2019

    • The grounds have gotten visual revamps with the allied races getting their own stands as seen below. Both factions also have an outhouse with a line.

    • The barrel of apples has a new model.

    • There is a new event, the Brewfest Chowdown, which is an eating contest.
      • The event begins once 4 people click the stand.
      • You have 3 buttons - one to eat, one to drink, and one to call for more food.
        • Eating fills your bar
        • Drinking reduces the bar.
        • You have to call for more food after eating 3x.
      • The goal is to be the first to finish 10 plates while trying not to let the bar get to 100 as it makes you choke for a few seconds
    • A variety of events (other than a Dark Iron attack) can happen such as alementals running rampant or Hozen attacks.
    • Down With The Dark Iron has been removed from the Brewmaster achievement.
    • The loot from Coren Direbrew is item level 395 for max level characters.

    Get ready to crack open a cold one with friends new and old during our revamped Brewfest! Sample brews from Azeroth and beyond with representatives from many prominent playable races during the booziest time of year.

    When - September 20–October 6
    Where - Ironforge Entrance (Alliance), Orgrimmar Entrance (Horde)
    Currency - Brewfest Prize Tokens

    Completing quests and activities on the Brewfest grounds will generally reward you with Brewfest Prize Tokens. These are used to purchase most of the items you will find on sale at Brewfest.


    Activities
    NEW! Brewfest Chowdown
    Slurp and burp your way through this eating contest to be crowned the Chowdown Champion. Compete with three other players in front of a panel of spectators to prove your prowess but try not to choke (literally)! The first to finish 10 plates of sausages takes home the prize. Manners optional. Speak with Etga (Horde) or Britta Steinhart (Alliance) to participate. Prize: 1 Brewfest Chowdown Champion Token.

    [​IMG]

    NEW! Timed Events
    Every half hour a group of alementals, hozen, or Dark Iron dwarves will show up to destroy the Brewfest grounds. Put a stop to their shenanigans for a reward once a day.

    Chug ‘n Chuck Alementals
    Throw nearby taster mugs at these destructive alementals to put a cork in their plans.

    Shoo Pesky Hozen
    Unruly hozen want to monkey around—restore order by driving away these pests.

    Tip: Some of these buggers are winged, so saddle up on a flying mount to reach them!

    Get your fists swingin’ when the Dark Iron dwarves invade the Brewfest grounds!

    I did 3-4 runs with the 36+ spellpower proc trinket. Haven't gotten it once to proc.

    I did get a 125+ haste proc though...and I am not sure what the source was. Since I was grouped with 120s it could have been anything tbh :/

    The developer's are such garbage, it's insane. How can you release a holiday and NOT test the items it gives?

    Yes. There are 2 +9 trinkets though. One is a madien that heals and the other is a madien that does damage. Not sure if you can have 2 of the same type.

    well, from I understand...

    They actually DO proc. But they never changed the required level for the buff you get. So they're shooting blanks, so to speak

    Well, let’s give them the same crappy trinkets that won’t proc below a certain level, even though they can loot it, but don’t worry, they will really love the new model of the barrel of apples.........:eek:
    I’m with u Hashies on this one? WTF r the devs thinking?

    Now, now... to be fair, you're just not looking at things from Blizzard's perspective: which has always been "If it doesn't affect the max-level players, then fuck you." :rolleyes:

    It's insane that you can fix an apple barrel and brag about it but not the ITEMS that drop. You want to take about devalueing your holidays, this is it. Your first thing in the "What's new for Brewfest should be "Fixed trinkets to actually proc for characters below level 60"

    Submit your tickets

    Intellect Brewfest Trinkets Don't Proc At Low Level

    Same thing every year guys. Maidens work fine, Attack Power one works, Intellect ones DO NOT proc. I'm in combat, spamming damage/heals, nothing. It's been like this since low levels could Q for this holiday. I'm on a level 20 currently.

    I'm pretty sure the proced spell itself has a req level 60, from the really old Brewfest days when that was the level minimum. Can you fix the proc to scale with the looted trinket level?

    I was really disappointed to see the pretzel crown was seasonal mog only. Rip my dream of sausage hat with a pretzel crown....
