Barmaids and Mounts
As last year, Coren's main loot is a set of trinkets that are clones of existing badge trinkets with new, Brewfest related names. If you're a new 80 who wants to save up their badges for tier gear, these are perfect for you. Even veterans who've been meaning to pick up some off spec gear should like them. As a warning, the procs from these and their badge counterparts will not stack with each other, although the equipped bonuses will, if you're short on good trinkets. Here's the rundown:
There's a few old favorites from last year taking a return as well. You can, of course, still get Direbrew's Remote
as well as the Swift Brewfest Ram
and Great Brewfest Kodo
. Both factions can still get both mounts, and I'm hearing purely anecdotal evidence that they're dropping at pretty good rate this year.
The Barmaids are back this year as well with new level 80 trinkets: The Bitter Balebrew Charm
and the Bubbling Brightbrew Charm
. The 170 stamina alone makes them pretty nice, but who can resist having their very own Voluptuous Brewmaiden at their beck and call? I know you'll see me in BRD every day until I get my hands on one. As it is the Bubbling Brightbrew Charm will probably beat out the Essence of Gossamer
for newbie tanks.
One more item for your approval: The Direbrew Shanker 2.0
. Despite the unoriginal name, you probably shouldn't underestimate this dagger. It packs a pretty big wallop for its ilevel. Of course, it also looks like a broken bottle, so you should totally feel free to steal it from Rogues for RP. Totally.
No matter what you want to get your hands on, though, you only have around 2 weeks, so you'd best get cracking. We'll see you at the Grim Guzzler
