Brewfest start date postponed after concerns raised

Brewfest start date postponed after concerns raised
A few days ago, we told you about Brewfest being updated for Mists of Pandaria. At the time, the decision had been made to keep Brewfest on the same schedule as last year, which generated significant controversy. As it stood, Brewfest would start Sept. 20, which meant players would have five days of the event in which they could not challenge Coren Direbrew, and then they'd be forced to level as quickly as possible to reach the new level requirement for facing him before the event ended on Oct. 5.

Happily, that decision has been rethought. In a blue post on the EU forums, Vaneras confirmed that the event has been pushed forward by over a week. (While the exact dates haven't been announced, it will likely now be Sept. 28 to Oct. 13, give or take a day.)

This change is highly welcomed; personally, even though I'd planned to level fairly casually, the knowledge that I'd be missing out on a trinket or two had irked me. Now, I'm much more likely to complete my leveling a few days before Brewfest ends and get a few shots at it.

Hey guys,

We are aware that many of you are concerned about not having enough time to level up and such, which is a concern we fully acknowledge, as we know that many of you would like to enjoy and experience the new areas and content at your own pace, and not feel like you have to rush through things and level up as fast as possible just to have a go at the Brewfest dungeon boss.

Therefore, In order to make sure you guys have some more time to prepare for this year's Brewfest, we have pushed the whole event forward by just over a week, stopping short of overlapping with the Hallow's End event.



It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!

Brewfest updated for Mists of Pandaria, requires quick leveling

Brewfest will be updated for Mists of Pandaria
It's official: Brewfest this year will be updated for Mists of Pandaria. This means you'll have 10 days from launch to get to level 89 so that you can queue for it, according to CM Nakatoir on the EU forums. You won't be able to access Coren Direbrew until after Mists ships, and you won't be able to fight him until you level to 89. This means that over the entire 15-day run of Brewfest, Coren will only be accessible for 10 days, and you'll only have as many tries at him as you can squeeze in once you hit 89, whenever that is.

You'll still be able to do the other Brewfest quests, because they don't have a level requirement. Man, I'm not going to get a lot of sleep this September and October, it seems. I need me my kodo. Someone stole the kodo from me back when it dropped directly from the boss, and I've never forgiven that person. She knows who she is.

Hope to see at least a few of you alongside me in the land of those desperately leveling to 89. At least the fight won't be undertuned, for once. Coren should be pretty hard for all of us undergeared level 89s smashing our faces against him. I won't pretend I'm not extremely disappointed by this decision. Cutting back on my available chances for that kodo in this manner is not cool by me.
