yay world events
useless world event
Sorry, but I'm a huge fan of world events, and this one is the most dissatisfying of them all. It's boring and there's nothing to do. Thank goodness we have Brewfest coming soon.
There are achievements involved with this event and those reward you with a pet turkey and a title
The food does not go away. You can only hold 20 of each item however.The horn does not go away and you can keep it indefinitely, but it only creates 4 food, takes up a bag slot, and has a 12 hour cool down. You'll get a stack of about 20 of-level foods in that time span so this really isn't a useful item.I do like that they get players to look into the lore a bit more... but there is definitely a ton more potential to this event if they ever wanted to, I agree.
The quest Honoring a Hero gives you 500 rep towards your faction's meta reputation, ie Alliance or Horde, not the individual race reputations. It's one of the very few that does. It's a useless reputation but completionists chase such things, so this festival isn't entirely worthless for everyone.
Where do you get the horn?, I've only seen one quest so far and it gave me a book.
Verified, you only get the book this year, and not the horn.
I'm not sure if that's how it always was, since this is the first year I've done the quest. Just providing a counter example to the claim of "you only get the book this year, and not the horn."
