Multi-Tasking with the Lunar Festival

So you’re flying all around Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms to pay your respects to the Elders. It’s time consuming, but if you’re an Achievement collector you can get a little more bang for your buck by multi-tasking!

It’s Happy Hour Somewhere / Tastes Like Chicken
You have to go to all of the major cities, so why not kick back with a pint and a nice loaf of bread? It’s easy to get these two achievements just by visiting all the pubs and shops (like Trias Cheese in Stormwind) and having a bite or a sip of everything.

Shop Smart, Shop Pet…Smart
There are a few questable pets that you may not have bothered with in the old days of Classic WoW. Almost directly in between the two Elders in Feralas is a quest giver who starts the Sprite Darter line. And you have to go to Flame Crest in Burning Steppes, and to LBRS, so why not also finish up the quests for a pet baby spider and worg? (“En-Ay-Es-Tee-Why” and “Kibler’s Exotic Pets” respectively.)

Out at Shimmering Flats you can talk to Magus Tirth and buy an Ancona Chicken for a gold. Buy more than one — they sell pretty well on the AH. If you’re really being proactive, pick up some of Tigule and Foror’s Strawberry Ice Cream from a nearby vendor. You’ll need it for Children’s Week, and I bet it will sell well on the AH when that starts.

If you didn’t do them while leveling up, now is a good time to complete the mechanical chicken quests in Tanaris, The Hinterlands, and Feralas, and get a robot fowl of your own.

To All the Squirrels I’ve Loved Before and Pest Control
Many of these critters are easy to get on the fly, but if you’re Alliance you might want to love or kill a few of them now. The Barrens is your only home to Gazelles, and an easy place to find Prairie Dogs. Durotar is “hording” (ha ha!) all the Hares, and has lots of Swine. On the pest front, the only place I know of to find a Mouse is Westfall, so bonk one on the head while you’re out there.

Also, obviously if you haven’t done World Explorer yet this is your excuse.

      I did have most of them done.. although not the old world pets, because I was too focused on leveling up in the old days. Not everyone may have done them, though. ;)
