World Events: To Honor One's Elders Achievements

Posted by Mog in , ,

Beginning on January 24th at 6:00am, the Lunar Festival World Event will begin unlocking several achievements and the another required meta-achievement for [What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been]. This world event will be considerably easier than previous events as far as RNG is concerned as there really isn't any "luck based" achievements. Rather, this achievement will require a lot of traveling and patience to complete. In order to make your lives (and who am I kidding, myself too!) easier, here is a brief rundown of all the Lunar Festival achievements and necessary information needed to accomplish them!

[Elders of Eastern Kingdoms], [Elders of Kalimdor], [Elders of the Horde], [Elders of the Alliance] - All four of these achievements require pretty much the same thing. You need to visit all of the listed locations and speak with the elder present there. Once you speak with him/her, you complete the quest/achievement and receive a [Coin of Ancestry]. has an absolutely fantastic guide to knock out all four of these in an extremely efficient manner, and so I wouldn't even bother trying to put my own guide together. The guide can be found here.

[Elders of Northrend] - Same deal as just need to visit the people listed. The one hitch is that I don't have coordinates as of right now because this will be the first Lunar Festival in Northrend...but the listings give a general idea.

[Elders of the Dungeons] - Same deal again...just need to run the dungeons listed and scope out the Elders found inside.

[50 Coins of Ancestry] - If you've done the world Elder achievements, this is an automatic achievement.

[The Rocket's Red Glare] - You need to simply shoot of 10 [Red Rocket Cluster]s in 25 seconds or less. These rockets can be bought from Lunar Festival Vendors in all major old world cities, and the launchers for the rockets are nearby. Another easy knock out.

[Elune's Blessing] - You need to complete the [Elune's Blessing] quest given by Valadar Starsong in Moonglade (53,35). The quest itself is to kill Omen (the monster pictured above), but one thing to note is that in previous Lunar Festivals you don't actually have to participate in the kill. You simply just need to stand on his corpse.

[Lunar Festival Finery] - You simply need to purchase a festive pant suit or festive dress in order to complete this achievement. Such articles of clothing can be purchased for 5 Coins of Ancestry from Valadar Starsong.

[Frenzied Firecracker] - Easy enough. Just purchase 10 [Festival Firecracker]s from Lunar Festival vendors and pop them on the ground.


Looking back, I'm not really sure how much of a necessity this guide was/is to the average player. Most of the achievements are pretty self-explanatory, but I wanted to compile at least a list of links to make your searching easier. I hope this was helpful, and good luck on getting your "Elder" title!
