    Starts in TWO DAYS!

    I think I've seen only one post on it on all the blogs I have on my reader. Anyone have any good posts from history or want to write up something new? I am looking to update my holiday summary post with some new info.

    Yeah, the only way you'll be making gold off this holiday will be by visiting the elders. There's simply nothing you can do outside of that. Unless you find suckers to buy your fireworks and dresses. I've never cared for this holiday from the gold side. Someone prove me wrong!

    I totally would, but I've never seen a lunar festival. I saw it on the calendar in-game and have been wondering what it's all about...
    Retired - I blame Kathroman for everything.

    (that's a joke, eh)

    From what I have seen, this doesn't seem to be a good gold-making event since the rewards/achievements require people to actually do something instead of buying stuff from the AH.

    W/ that being said, I did stock up some and for the crafted festive dresses. Not expecting a huge return on those though.

    While it's not exactly a big profit center, you should get on all the toons you possibly can, so you can make s. While not as useful in raids anymore, people still occasionally buy them for the heck of it. I can usually get 2-3g per Elune stone, which isn't bad considering you can usually get a stack of solid stones for that.

    I had forgotten about those. Fortunately, it's really easy to get the lantern as you don't have to kill Omen, you just have to walk through his corpse after he's been killed.

    What stinks is even with the spotlight, raid targeting via the colored spotlights is even better now. =(

    Although I do like having a few stones around for screenshots of boss kills. It truly demonstrates how awesome my pally is!

    Well, I've been doing decently well at completely controlling the supply of Firebloom during this holiday, and I've been selling a lot of Runecloth, too. I'm using the remote AH to buy up anyone else's Firebloom and post 10 stacks of each, Firebloom in 2s and Runecloth Bolts in 4s (needed for the dress in those quantities), pretty much constantly. And people have been buying them, slowly but better than nothing. So, my first taste of price fixing... fun times.

    Do you think anyone will pay me to take them to all the Elders on my ?

    I think you'd have a better chance if the elders still provided experience. And, there's still a level requirement to get the elders in all the dungeons.

    I feel like this goes back to the whole GPH thing. I get asked based on my gear for me to tank a heroic random and get someone an instant queue. I always respond back that I charge 1k per random (and even that is low for what I could make or spend my time elsewhere).

    I have yet to find a buyer at that price. The point is I guess is that you have to figure out what GPH is worth it for you to do that and then find a buyer that will pay that to you. I wouldnt pay because I still have to be around to talk to each elder and can not afk the achieve while you do it for me.

    TLDR - Your time is proably worth more elsewhere.
