Sweet, more days to get drunk!

/secondedLast year I was slowly leveling and pretty much ignored all the holidays(except for Hallow's End, I guess I'm just weird that way). Having finally hit 80 though, I'm having a lot of fun with Brewfest, way more than I thought I would. It's not just whacking a dwarf until purples drop(though that is enjoyable, and a quick way to good gear for a fresh 80), but the whole drunken revelry thing is just plain FUN.So much so that I was really hoping they'd extend it at least a day, if for no other reason than to make up for time lost due to that 3.2.2 snafu last week. But two extra days, I'm all for that, especially for the chance to kill Direbrew with a beer mug and a broken bottle while completely smashed. That will be a better reward than any achievement, title or even progress towards a drake.This does, however, raise a very interesting and important question: Will the Headless Horseman/Hallow's End receive similar upgrades?

Two extra days is nice.I'm not sure i'll take advantage of it though sadly, i've more or less given up on farming for the Kodo mount now, having killed Coren well over 150 times or so now and seeing the mount drop 3 times and have 2 of the people that won it later claim they weren't that fussed by it when the ONLY reason i go is to get it is a bit deflating. Especially since as soon as they get the mount they ofcourse stop coming to future runs thus being replaced with someone else who'll compete with me.It would be some consolation if i got the direbrew remote but alas i've seen that go to 7 other people.That said brewfest has got to be my favourite of all the holidays in the game as of yet.Maybe i'll feel a bit more optimistic next year.

Likely in response to the EU conundrum of us being down a day's worth of tokens due to the removed quests. This change IS relevant in both US and EU, yes?

@ RozencratzI really feel for you. I have been luckier this year than last, as I now have the Kodo & remote. Wish we were on the same server because whether I get the Ram I really want, or not, I'll still keep running Direbrew to help friends out. It only happens once a year!

I can completely understand about the kodo dropping, someone else gets it and then they don't bother to show up for the next runs. My guild leader last year did that... he suddenly stopped coming to the runs when he got his mount - on the third day in. Nice team effort there, huh. It was one of the deciding factors for me to stop running with random guild members at the time because of the 4 times the kodo dropped it went to people who were either on alts, who didn't really care about the mount but rolled for the heck of it or just paid off the high roller with 1k of gold for the mount.

@ rosencratzI feel bad about this, but every one of my level 80's has a brewfest mount of some sort. I never rolled need on an alt, but when the kodo dropped on my hunter everyone in the group had one. When the ram dropped on my druid - no-one wanted it. On my main - my shaman - I rolled need on the kodo and won it outright.
