Lunar Fest holds a special place in my heart because I first started playing WoW during Lunar Fest '08. Of course at the time I had no idea what it was. I remember walking up to the guy in the glowing column of light and saying "Hello" to him. I thought he was an in game moderator. I went on to tell him I'm new to the game and asking him where I could find some quest item that was giving me trouble. After being miffed that he didnt bother to respond to me I walked away sulking.To this day I always /wave at the glowing light dudes, even though they are stuck up and wont answer my questions.

I, too started playing right before the start of the Lunar Festival, granted, it was the very first one. I recall having no clue how to go anywhere except for Teldrassil and Darkshore, but I was confused over how many people were talking in trade, despite no one being in Darnassus. Needless to say, when the opportunity to magically skip across the ocean to Stormwind via the scroll you get, I took it! Got the flight path, and hearthed back home to Darnassus, only to find out that I couldn't fly there from the Village...I also discovered Thunder Bluff and Orgrimmar that day, because the portals were "bugged" and didn't prevent you from going to opposing factions cities. That was hotfixed the next day.

I started playing about a year later in between Winter Veil and Lunar Fest. It was really cool and like you I had no clue what I was doing. I was on my mage or rogue and remember not having a clue where I was when I read that scroll (moonglade) I just kept asking the guild If I was going to get ganked or not (I had not PvPed at the time but read/heard about it). One of the things I failed to do that year (but corrected it in 2010) was pick up the alliance FP. Especially good for those toons in the 48-55 range who might have to turn in a quest or two there. Fun times. Can't wait.
