Common trend, everyone saying, "Nothing new". Blizzard: you are slacking.
Like as not the reason for no pandaren elders is that the races of Pandaria did not participate in the War of the Ancients, and only at the end, during the implosion of the Well of Eternity that caused the Shattering, did they know something apocalyptic was happening in the outside world. (ref: Lorewalker Cho's lecture on the "Emperor's Burdens")
I like all events and LOVE changes , But hate when its the same as last year and I have nothing to do over the event that'll keep me occupied while in the que for HC and LFR! Awesome Guide btw! :)
Guess Blizzard doesn't care much about this event, first one updated will be Midsummer Festival, included in 5.2 (~march)
First order of business? Schematics!
I'm excited! The Lunar Festival is one of my favorite world events! :)
There is new Noxy art for this guide, which imo is an exciting update :P

She did one of me last year, but this one is in a slightly-different style. Always a fan of moar arts.
I agree with a majority of the comments, I keep checking these guides for changes in the holiday activities, I really think the holidays were one of my favorite parts of wow because it changed up the regular activities for a few weeks.It was great to have something completely different to do aside from rep grind, do dungeons, bg's, and raid on the weekends.And with a new expansion, I would kind of think they would want to implement the pandarian culture with the existing holidays. :-/
Begun to farm coins on ally for pet, realised I can just buy it on AH cheap.. Had collected 5 coins and then brain started to work.
It's ironic that the Lunar Festival, based on the Chinese New Year, was made to be a druidic festival in-game, so the Chinese-themed Pandaren, whose land broke away and disappeared before druidism took hold, don't actually celebrate this festival.
Like all others I find it dissapointing they did nothing at all with the Lunar Festival when they could have really hit it out of the park with the Pandaren and this holiday. While I do find the xp an easy alt grab for lvling, I am still dissapointed that they added nothing new aside from 2 pets in all these years. With the new pet battle system it would have been great to have had a Pandaren questline leading to some sort of pet that tied in with the lunar festival. It seems odd to me that Pandaren is so segregated from this, almost disjointed. /dislike

It's like folks that come to the US bringing their traditions and celebrations with them. I would believe that just because they are now residing in Pandaria they wouldn't forgo all outward celebration of the event. Aside from the small set up at the Shrine, that's it. Just feels weird to me. There are numerous places like the Incursion in Karsang where this would've dropped in quite nicely.
I don't think everythings been reset for the Elders. Just went to the Uldum pair which I know I did last year but neither are coughing up. Infuriating when I need to do some power leveling.
Yeah, they don't seem to have reset the Cataclysm elders, so if you did them last year, you're out of luck (or at least, Lucky Red Envelopes - <cymbal crash>).
Does it work for a DK on another realm?
