WOW GOLD AAO - WoW Beginners Guides - Love is in the Air Guide

Love is in the Air Guide

Buffs can be dispelled, but sockets are forever. That was the line from the Valentine’s Day World of Warcraft commercial that aired during the days of WoW: The Burning Crusade. Now the holiday has come back around but this time with a vengeance. No longer do you pick up chocolates from the guards or find out who’s spiked the perfume. A mysterious group of Goblins called the Crown Company has taken over the holiday and the Steemwheedle Cartel is none too pleased.

What’s New
A lot has changed and the holiday has been revamped to remove all of the frustrating bits out of it. No longer do you have to hope you get the right item from a guard or sit AFK for hours at a time while a debuff wears off.

Guards no longer give out gifts and “Heartbroken” no longer exists.
Innkeepers have no role at all in the new Love is in the Air holiday.
You can now do four daily quests for your capital cities in addition to other daily quests once you’ve unlocked them.
Love Tokens are now used to purchase all of the goods that used to come from Pledges. You can get these from daily quests or by farming any mob for XP to make bracelets.
Many of the achievements have changed, but they’re rewarded retroactively (so you won’t lose any achievements).
Love Tokens and Charm Bracelets
How to get stuff to buy some stuff.

Love Tokens are the currency used during the holiday and are obtained through daily quests or farming enemies for Lovely Charms. They can be traded into the Lovely Merchant for holiday themed loot.

Lovely Charms

Travel to Stormwind or Orgrimmar and locate the Crown Company. They’re outside of the auction house and are usually surrounded by people. Start by talking to the flying goblin and picking up a Lovely Charm Collector’s Kit. This will allow you to pickup “Lovely Charms” from any enemy that would give you XP (so green or higher). It’s got a random chance and the items automatically go into your inventory. Just keep it there. Once you have 10 you can turn them into a Lovely Charm Bracelet. This is the objective of the four “A Gift for the …” daily quests and can be turned directly into Love Tokens.

Daily Quests

There are a total of six daily quests (five to start, 1 you can unlock) and an additional daily quest to do the new boss fight. Not counting bracelets and awards from the dungeon daily, you can have a total of 30 tokens a day. That means you’ll only need about 8 days of farming just the daily quests to get everything you’ll need.

Total Tokens Needed
Assuming you DO NOT use other player's items you will need about 100 tokens total, give or take a few. For everything for the holiday you'll need about 150 and that includes Perma-Peddle.

Questline Walkthrough
Head to Orgrimmar or Stormwind and look for the Steemwheelde. The first quest you will get is called “Something Stinks” which will ask you to scan 5 guards with the given item. Look for guards with a purple hue and use the item on them. When you return you’ll get the quest “Pilfering Perfume.” You’ll then be turned into a goblin who CAN NOT STOP. Head out of the gates in either Org or Stormwind and go to the left (for both cities). There will be some weighted companion cube looking boxes and some Forsaken standing around them. Just keep moving, walk near them and get the item, then run back to the detective.

Once that is done you’ll be given quests to find “Snivel Rustrocket.” Alright, for Horde you’re going to want to pick-up the quest “Snivel’s Sweetheart” and go to Roka at Gotri’s Travelling Goods in the Drag. There turn it in to her and visit the bank, the barber shop (it’s in the cleft of shadow), and the auction house for “Hot On The Trail.” Roka will be furious and send you to find Snivel at the zeppelin tower (the old world one, not the one to Northrend). Travel there, speak with him, and it’s done.

Alliance players will want to seek out Marion Sutton in the Gilded Rose (Trade District) and then visit the bank, barber shop, and the auction house for “Hot On the Trail.” Again, like the Horde you’ll need to go the Alliance Harbor and speak with Snivel in order to finish this questline. Return to the detective to unlock the instance daily breadcrumb and the Crushing the Crown daily.

Random Crazed Apothecaries will spawn and explode doing about 3k damage to whoever is nearby, so split up.

Most of this fight is avoiding the stuff on the ground and nuking the bosses down as fast as possible. You can two man it as long as you’re smart about moving and one tank keeps both bosses on them. For bigger groups, you can have one strong melee DPS like a Warrior or a Paladin hold aggro on one boss while the tank picks up the other boss. If you have a decent tank then he can use one of the neutralizers and just hold both bosses.

Make sure not to stand in clouds on the ground that you’re not neutralized for.

DO NOT pull the bosses up the stairs. They will reset.

Your quest item is CONSUMED whenever you start the quest. So if you wipe or reset it then you’ll lose your chance to do it that day.

Loot

One of five epic 226 necklaces will drop with the same stats as the Emblem of Conquest neck pieces.

Additionally, the “Forever-Lovely Rose” is a nice looking flower for your head. Vile Fumigator’s Mask is a silly mask for your face. Toxic Wasteling is a funny pet you can have. The Heartbreaker will make a person randomly weep. Finally, a rare mount has the chance to drop called the Love Rocket.

Achievements
Fool for Love is the main meta achievement. You will need to complete all of the achievements below except Perma-Peddle, Tough Love, and Lovely Luck Is On your Side.

Dangerous Love

Finish the “Crushing the Crown” daily quest once to get this achievement awarded. You can see our guide above on where to go to do it.

Fistful of Love

Buy the Handful of Rose Petals and use it on the listed class/race combinations. It's best to do it in Dalaran and track the achievement so you can keep track of what you’ve done and what you need to do.

Flirt with Diaster

This one is pretty easy and very funny. Buy a stack of booze and drink until you’re smashed. Then go to the Undercity, put on some Perfume, throw a Handful of Rose Petals on Jeremiah Payson the Cockroach vendor, and then /kiss him. For the Alliance you’ll want to do the same, except on Sraaz the wandering pie vendor in Ironforge.

I Pitied The Fool

You’ll need to buy five Love Fools and visit Wintergrasp, Arathi Basin, Naxxramas, the Gurubashi Arena (in STV), and The Culling of Stratholme with them. Place them down, select them, then type /pity. You WILL NOT have to buy them yourself if someone else has one out. You’ll need to form a raid group in order to zone into Naxxramas.

Obtain a Bouquet of Red or Ebon Roses from Prince Keleseth in Utgarde Keep, Prince Taldaram in Old Kingdom, or the Maiden of Grief in Halls of Stone. You can do this on Normal. So if you’re a level 80 with a lot of free time you can just queue into them and help some lowbies out.

Well that’s the new holiday! Happy Love is in the Air and be sure to enjoy all of the fun before it ends.
