Lunar Festival 2016

The Lunar Festival is a 2-week event based on Chinese New Year and will run between the 1st and 15th February (or the 2nd – 16th for Oceanic players). There aren’t really any changes this year except for the heirloom upgrades added in Patch 6.1.


These fireworks (previously only seen during the short pre-MoP Theramore’s Fall scenario) cost 25x Coins of Ancestry. Better still, learning one automatically teaches you the toy for the opposing faction.

Pet Lovers

These faction-specific pets cost 50x Coins of Ancestry each. The good news is, they are BoE meaning you’ll be able to trade them or purchase them from the AH.


Give your Perky Pug some fireworks to play with for the cost of 1x Coins of Ancestry. Watch him run around in circles having the time of his life.


Three firework schematics require 500 skill to learn and 5x Coins of Ancestry to buy.

Heirloom Upgrades

The following items will upgrade an heirloom piece to 90 and 100, respectively.

2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey who are said to be ambitious and adventurous, but irritable.

  1. Thank you for the reminder, I thought I didn’t need anything but I do need heirloom upgrades so looks like I’ll be collecting coins after all.

    Thanks for the reminder and summary. I too had forgotten the heirloom upgrades.

    • Isn’t it great? It’s always nice to have another way to get those heirlooms.
