Love is in the Air

Love is in the Air
This year, Love is in the Air will run from February 2nd through the 16th. This event was based around Valentine’s Day, giving players a chance to give and receive gifts throughout Azeroth.

When we changed Holiday dungeons to scale based on a player’s level, we aimed to increase participation in those dungeons. We also wanted to avoid a situation where a player with an army of low-level characters had a better chance at receiving account-wide rewards than a player with one or two max-level characters. At the same time, we didn't want to impact the amount of chances that players who maintain several max-level characters had in previous years.

As a compromise, we made account-wide rewards a random drop for any character capable of participating in current-expansion content. For the remainder of Legion, players level 98 and above fit that criteria. The minimum level requirement will increase again in Battle for Azeroth, and will continue to increase in future expansions.

New in 2018
  • Heirloom upgrades added to the event vendor.
  • Event specific cosmetic items can be transmogged.
  • Neck slot items are now item level 880.
  • Players that are lower level than current expansion content (lower than Level 98) receive Heart-Shaped Carton, which doesn't contain the Big Love Rocket


Lovely Charm Collection
To start collecting Lovely Charms, players must purchase a Lovely Charm Collector's Kit from Kwee Q. Peddlefeet. With it in their inventory, players will be rewarded with Lovely Charms whenever they fight enemies which would grant XP or Honor.


The Event Boss: Apothecary Hummel
You can queue through the dungeon finder to kill Apothecary Hummel, who drops a Heart-Shaped Box or Heart-Shaped Carton (depending on your level) for the first kill of the day - this can contain:


Apothecary Hummel also drops a random neck piece from the following list:

Upon killing Apothecary Hummel for the first time you will also be awarded a Faded Lovely Greeting Card, which will begin the quest Something is in the Air (and it Ain’t Love).


Quests

Macro to help find Illidan during the Kil'jaeden encounter

Love is in the AirSo since they fixed tracking Illidan on the minimap as druid I made the following macro: /target Lord Illidan Stormrage /run if (UnitName("target") == "Lord Illidan Stormrage" and CheckInteractDistance("target", 3)) then Minimap:PingLocation(0,0) end /targetlasttarget What it does: When you are close to Illidan (10 yards) you will ping on the minimap at your current location. This is a minor improvement over manually clicking on the minimap since you can just run around while spamming the macro and don't have to move your cursor and aim carefully on the minimap. Also you don't have anything else to do anyways while running/searching. Make sure to repl...
