Wow Lunar Festival Guide
Lunar Festival is a Wow Holiday loosely based on the Chinese New Year celebration. Wow Lunar Festival consists of quests, novelty items, achievements, and of course fireworks. The Lunar Festival is a time for celebration, happiness, and fortune.
Coins of Ancestry/Elders
All you need to do is find an Elder (listed below) and talk to them and your quest is complete. Every Elder provides 1 Coin of Ancestry and only 1; however, you may revisit an Elder the following year of the Lunar Festival. There are a total of 84 Elders, each of them standing in a circle of light with some being more difficult to reach than others.
You can spend Coins of Ancestry on festival outfits, fireworks, food, companions, tailoring patterns, and engineering schematics. These coins don't expire so if you want to, feel free to save them for next year's Lunar Festival.
Along with a Coin of Ancestry, players will also receive a Lucky Red Envelope when visiting an Elder which contains either a Lucky Rocket Cluster or an Elder's Moonstone.
The beast Omen is a main component of the Lunar Festival. He was once defeated long ago in Moonglade, but every year he respawns at the Lunar Festival. This gives players a chance to experience a unique raid-style encounter and is required for the Lunar Festival Title and Elune's Blessing achievement.
To get to Omen you first need to talk to a Lunar NPC in a major city and they will give you an invitation and an Elder Moonstone. Before leaving the major city, make sure you purchase Rocket Clusters because you need them to summon Omen. Then, stand in the beam of light near the holiday NPCs in any major city and right-click on your Lunar Festival Invitation to transport you to Moonglade.
In Moonglade, south of Stormrage Barrow Dens are Rocket Cluster launchers that you need to use, they're at 64,60 and 63,62. Launch Rocket Clusters and ghost wolf mobs will spawn, pwn those mobs and eventually Omen will appear. Pwn Omen and stand in his beam of light for the achievement.
