I really hope Blizzard has put some effort into freshening up Brewfest this year (as they should do for all holidays) for those who have done it all last year. For instance, Harvest Festival is upon us for the 5th time and what have they done ? Nothing ! Even more bizarrely they run it over a week ... a whole week of nothingness !And whats with people missing out on mounts etc. from years gone past ? Don't you have on line friends, guild members who help out etc ? Form a farming group with 4 other online friends or guildies for mount runs and holidays. We did that at the start of last year , and everyone in our group got both mounts. One of the reasons why this new bag system unfairly punishes people like us, we were managing fine with no ninjas and had people who were committed to helping each other out.Getting back to what I was saying, 264 trinkets would be nice, its no big deal dropping gear of that item level as it will be replaced in level 80 starting zones in Cataclysm.

On behalf of the many loyal WoW.jostiq.com/insider/thing I will say tell your QQ walking buddy. Blizzard doesn't revolve around you. Yeah I did it all last year too. So what? If you really must post your QQ please do so on official forums. That ghostcrawler dude needs some more work (sorry GC). (Cutaia) if you could reply to this to get your new face icon as seal of approval I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I suspect the change in the way the holiday boss encounters are accessed was done for a variety of reasons. Preventing ninjas was obviously part of why Blizzard chose to do it. But a secondary purpose, I believe, was to STOP players from farming these bosses for their rare drops in exactly the way you describe. Leveling the playing field does not equal "unfair punishment". Every day, each of the characters you play have the same shot at getting the rare loot no matter how many friends you have or how many characters you've leveled to the cap. Seems pretty fair to me.A third reason (although non-loot related) that I think Blizzard made these changes was a result of the constant griefing on PVP servers at the holiday encounter's instance gate - another welcome change, in my book.
