—— 魔兽世界日历

美酒节Brewfest是游戏中的一个年度世界事件,从每年9月20日开始,一直持续到10月6日。节日期间有一些任务和一些新奇的东西,比如套装、酒罐和骑山羊。

背景

根据日历中的描述,美酒节最初是矮人的节日,后来成为了艾泽拉斯各种族共同庆祝的节日。

WoW-comic-logo-16x68.png 本段文字所记述的内容来自魔兽世界系列漫画

The origin of Brewfest is recounted in the graphic novel Pearl of Pandaria.

Shortly before traveling to Kalimdor and meeting the halfbreed Rexxar,[1] the famous pandaren brewmaster Chen Stormstout, having been overwhelmingly recommended to try Thunderbrew beer, found his way to Dun Morogh and Grimbooze Thunderbrew at Thunderbrew Distillery, challenging the dwarf to a drinking contest to decide who was the better brewer. In the end, when the two were nearly passed out, Chen declared Grimbooze to be superior. However, Grimbooze liked Chen's beer more. After a brief and lighthearted argument, the two decided to hold a contest in Dun Morogh for all dwarves to taste their drinks and decide. Coren Direbrew whined his way into getting a position in the contest as well. In the end, Chen and Grimbooze were neck-in-neck while Coren only had two votes, one from himself and one from Chen out of pity. The Dark Iron attacked them in anger, and Chen fought him off. Grimbooze's brew was declared the victor by a single vote.

The festival continued annually, with the Gordok ogres replacing Coren and the Barleybrew dwarves replacing Chen, eventually evolving into the modern Brewfest. Coren Direbrew, never forgetting his humiliation, has led attacks on the festival every year since.

It's a shame that Direbrew couldn't keep his temper in check, for while his brew at the time may have been substandard, his current Dire Brew could have been the talk of Brewfest... if he hadn't gotten himself uninvited all those years ago.

活动地点

活动内容

美酒和美食

在美酒节有许多美味又便宜(甚至免费)的手工啤酒、节日香肠、椒盐卷饼和奶酪。

在美酒节的主要活动地点有三个摊位出售美酒,其中两个摊位出售阵营特有的酒,另外一个摊位则是中立的食人魔酒商。这些酒不仅会像一般的酒提供醉酒效果,还会像其它饮料一样为你恢复法力值并提供进食充分效果。其它城市的啤酒花园也有商人出售同样的美酒。三位商人分别出售三种酒,有越来越高的等级需求和相应提高的进食充分效果。这些美酒比其它饮料的法力恢复速度更快,但是它们带有“需要美酒节”的标签,会在美酒节结束后消失。

出售面包、奶酪和香肠的食物供应商也会在活动地点出现,只不过只在主要活动地点。他们既出售美酒节特有的食物,也卖普通商人出售的一般食物。节日特有的食物能提供优秀的增益效果,并且价格比同等级的一般食物便宜一半。不过这些特有的食物同样带有“需要美酒节”的标签,也会在美酒节结束之后消失。

开酒罐仪式

每天两次,分别是早上6点15分和下午6点15分,大工匠梅卡托克萨鲁法尔大王会分别亲自来到各自阵营的美酒节现场,主持开酒罐仪式。参加仪式的角色会获得一个美酒节的热情增益效果,获得的经验值提高10%,持续2小时。如果一个角色仍带有此前的仪式上获得的此增益效果,持续时间并不会刷新,因此玩家在尝试获得两小时增益效果之前应该确保移除已存在的增益。这个增益效果在角色死亡后仍会保留。

联盟 大工匠梅卡托克的讲话

埃菲库格·铁桶喊道: 大工匠梅卡托克来了!开酒罐仪式马上就要开始啦!
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 你们都聚在这里庆祝这个伟大的节日,真是令人高兴。今年,我们经历了许多艰难困苦,所以像美酒节这样的节日特别振奋人心,特别受欢迎。
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 许多年前,当麦格尼国王陛下把这些节日的准备工作交给我的时候,我向他保证,我们侏儒会将美酒节办成一场令人难忘的盛会。但麦格尼明白我们侏儒还有许多工作要做。所以他希望这个节日能够办得朴素庄重,以纪念往昔。
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 我对此可以理解,但国王陛下能允许我这个侏儒去开酒桶,已经是个改变了。我还记得那无数个夜晚里,我独自一人静静思考如何最有效率地打开酒桶,并把里面的酒绝对平均地分给大家喝,请注意绝对平均和最有效率这两个词。
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 制定出了完美的计划之后,我派出了手下最精锐的人员来研制能够完成任务的机器!我们的计算已经精确到秒……
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: ……好吧……我估计这儿已经没人想听到开罐器74205和75633的名字了……如果我说开罐器1701-D的话,你们可能会兴奋一点……
麦维·麦酒喊道: 打开酒桶!
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 好吧,好吧……现在我们就开始十秒倒计时,大家准备好了吗?10!
美酒节的人群喊道: 五!
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 哦……好吧,让我们直接数零吧……
美酒节的人群喊道: 四!
美酒节的人群喊道: 三!
美酒节的人群喊道: 二!
美酒节的人群喊道: 一!
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 酒桶打开了!现在,我来献上祝酒辞。啊,放心,我尽量简短一些。
大工匠梅卡托克喊道: 喝吧,喝了以后一切都会变美好的!

奖币和纪念品

美酒节的许多活动中,玩家可以收集到拾取后绑定的[美酒节奖币],用于在主要活动地点的NPC处兑换各种纪念品。

赛羊

赛羊也是美酒节的一个重要传统节目。有几个赛羊相关的任务。在任务期间,玩家会骑上一个临时的赛羊坐骑。

赛羊有5个档次的移动速度,通过额外动作条上的加速!技能来调整。点击此技能可以“激励”赛羊,数次之后赛羊的速度就会提升。连续点击几下后赛羊就会提升速度,接下来保持一定的节奏持续点击即可让赛羊保持当前的速度,而停止点击后过一会赛羊的速度就会下降。引导任务赛羊会前的热身会让玩家熟悉如何改变赛羊的速度。

当赛羊处于慢跑或疾跑状态时,玩家会持续获得赛羊疲惫减益效果。当效果叠加到100层时,赛羊会筋疲力尽,速度降低到几乎停止,持续15秒。因此在相关的日常任务中,玩家需要控制赛羊的速度,避免赛羊精疲力尽。

赛羊缰绳
魔法制造的物品
任务物品
唯一
使用:放松缰绳,加快速度!
"羊儿,你快些跑!"

在运送酒桶的任务开始时,玩家会获得一个[赛羊缰绳]。与一旁的赛羊学徒对话也可获得这个物品。使用这个物品可以达到与点击加速!按钮相同,因此操控赛羊最简单的方法就是将这个物品放进动作条,然后按下对应的快捷键(而不用一边点击额外动作条上的技能、一边转动视角改变方向,或者专门给额外动作条设置一个快捷键)。还有一个替代方案:创建一个宏/click ExtraActionButton1,然后将它放进动作条——这个宏的效果等同于点击额外动作条上的技能。

运送酒桶

日常任务美酒节佳酿要求玩家骑上赛羊运送酒桶。在第一次进行此任务之前,还会有一个引导任务来来回回让玩家熟悉路线。玩家需要骑上赛羊,在活动地点与酒桶的供应地点之间往返,运送酒桶,同时可以赚取[美酒节奖币]

玩家获得的赛羊坐骑一开始持续4分钟。每当玩家成功运送一次酒桶时,赛羊的持续时间就会延长30秒,同时玩家会获得2枚美酒节奖币。不过赛羊的总持续时间上限为15分钟——即使玩家成功运送了第23个酒桶(虽然基本不可能),让持续时间到了15分30秒,在时间到15分钟时赛羊仍然会消失。如果全程让赛羊保持疾跑,在路线上来回一次需要花上40-60秒,因此熟练的玩家可以让初始4分钟的赛羊持续10分钟以上,并在每天的日常任务中获得20个以上的美酒节奖币。

在运送酒桶的路线旁,放置了两个苹果桶。当玩家骑着赛羊接近苹果桶时,赛羊疲惫减益效果会被清空,重新从0开始计算。这在最大化每天运送酒桶的收益中非常重要。利用这些苹果桶,可以让赛羊全程保持疾跑状态,同时不会筋疲力尽。

For the keg deliveries, there are apple barrels which, if you ride by closely enough, will remove the Ram Fatigue debuff entirely and allow it to start at zero again. This is very important to maximize token gain from the keg delivery daily quest, allowing you to gallop at full speed throughout the event. (The apple barrels work on any ram, and there are some barrels near the barker quest NPCs, but the barking run does not have barrels along the barking route.)

Players with lag may find that riding past the barrels does not always dispel the debuff. If this happens to you, compensate by ramming the barrels for a half second or so and then slide around them. An alternate method is to make an arching, banana shaped path around the barrel resulting in a longer path through the barrel's trigger radius without having to actually pause the forward movement of the ram. Jumping in the proximity of the barrel seems to give you a fraction of a second longer for the fatigue dispel to proc. This extra time in proximity to the barrel will reduce the chance that you will miss your reset and exhaust your ram. In the 2007 Brewfest you could stop (by pressing the key that would normally cause you to back up) momentarily, again creating extra time in proximity to the barrel, but this is no longer .

You should keep tabs on the fatigue debuff and watch for the red flash when it dispels, but beware, the red flash is an unreliable indication, check that the debuff reset to zero. If the debuff fails to dispel, it is much more expedient to return to the barrel than to allow the Exhausted Ram to proc.

Picking up a keg will result in an emote and notification that the keg item has been acquired, as well as a special sound. However, these do not occur until around a second after the pickup has in fact been triggered. Even later, the NPC can be seen to throw the keg to you; the keg itself will travel slowly through the air, usually reaching the ram a few seconds later. Turning in a keg similarly provides an emote, notification and sound, again around a second after the turn-in has actually been triggered. The keg and tokens will also appear in the player's inventory.

Note that the process of both picking up a keg and returning one are triggered while still at a significant distance from the related NPC (especially the former). Because of this, with practice, you can turn back from the NPC around a second before confirmation of the hand-off has been received. Use visual landmarks, such as the distance from the nearest fence, to mentally mark the earliest possible cut-off point. While risky, this can shave substantial amounts of time off your run, allowing you to return more kegs each time. If a hand-off fails to trigger, simply immediately race back toward the NPC before too much time is lost.

The best time of day to do this quest is when the server is least busy, because you will have less problem with events not proccing. Evening is the prime time to avoid, if your schedule allows it.

An excellent path for Alliance
Optimal path for Alliance

There are four apple barrels along the route - barrel 1 in the ram pen, barrel 2 at the crossing, barrel 3 at the gnome house (new in 2008); this was moved to across the street in 2009, and barrel 4 in Kharanos behind the keg thrower (moved in 2009 to near the carts on the other side of the street). You should avoid using barrel 4, since barrel 3 is so close to the keg thrower. Just make a quick 180 shortly before you'd ride past the guard (Ironforge Mountaineer), and ride back to barrel 3. Similarly, you should avoid using barrel 1, since barrel 2 is so close to the keg receiver. Just make a quick 180 shortly after you ride into the clearing where the receiver stands. You should use as few barrels as possible; each entails a slight but cumulative delay. There are a few fast routes, but you will have to compromise some guidelines.

  • Strategy 1 - The first strategy is less risky, but a little slower (14-15 deliveries). Just ride to barrel 3, get the keg, ride back to barrel 3, then ride to barrel 1 at the ram pen (skipping barrel 2 entirely). Rinse and repeat. Uses 3 refreshment barrels.
  • Strategy 2 - The second strategy is like the first, but reverses the refreshing scheme. Ride to barrel 2, ride toward barrel 4, but approach from the keg thrower's side. There is a line of barrels stacked near the road, if you ride along either side of that, you are close enough to get a keg. Ride around keg four, or jump and spin over it, and ride back to barrel 2. Ride toward the keg receiver, turn in the clearing before you get to him, and repeat. Uses 3 refreshment barrels.
  • Strategy 3 - The third route (16-20 deliveries) goes like this: You start by going to barrel 3, get the keg, ride to barrel 3, then ride towards the ram pen in a straight line. Now there are two flags in front of the ram pen: Flag 1 in front of it next to a big tree, and another one next to a smaller tree. When you ride a couple yards past flag 1, you'll throw your keg. Make a quick turn there, and ride around the big tree towards barrel 2. Your fatigue should be 50-55 when you make that turn. Just to be safe you should stop using your Ram Racing Reins at 45-50 fatigue. You'll fall back to Canter when your debuff stacks to ~90 (this is where it gets a little risky). Just make sure your debuff resets, then start using the Reins again and Gallop to barrel 3, etc. So this is the path: Barrel 3, pick up the keg, barrel 3, deliver, barrel 2, barrel 3, pick up the keg, barrel 3, deliver, 2->3->pick up->3->deliver->2->3 etc. Uses 3 refreshment barrels, none of which are end point turns.
  • Strategy 4 - (~18-20 deliveries) Another route you might want to try is hit both middle barrels in both directions, and skip both end barrels: (start), barrel 2, barrel 3, pick-up (yards in front of the NPC), barrel 3, barrel 2, deliver (yards in front of the NPC), repeat. This is a very fast, yet forgiving route, and you can adjust your pickup and delivery turns as you gain confidence. Uses 4 refreshment barrels, none of which are end point turns. This is slower than the third strategy, but the timing is not as tight, so it is less risky as you are building confidence.
  • Strategy 5 - It's possible to use only barrel 3. The path is very simple: Barrel 3, pick up, barrel 3, deliver. You should only try this route if you're very good at using the jumping trick below (keep the Galloping speed midair while only getting Canter fatigue ticks). You need to use it about 6 times when delivering the keg. It's the fastest possible route (very close to a straight line), but also the hardest. Tip: Practice with the ram from the barking quest.

The new apple bucket locations for the keg run
Optimal path for Horde

Since 2011 and due to the Cataclysm, the path for the keg run was dramatically changed, forcing players to ride through a heavily obstructive blockade.

Optimal path
  1. From the NPC, ride directly through the tent and jump over the fence.
  2. Navigate carefully around or between the two fires; it is easy to get stuck on these, but try to find the most direct route.
  3. Pass the barrel, and duck left to avoid hitting the crates.
  4. Set a course tightly skirting the edge of the small hill to the far right. This section leads the player across the main duelling spot for Orgrimmar, and just to the right of the Honored Ancestor NPCs.
  5. Once the hill is reached, turn right slightly to set a straight path to the next apple barrel, which will now be visible.
  6. Once the barrel is reached, immediately turn right, sticking close to the barricade without getting stuck on it.
  7. Once past the barricade, turn straight toward the keg-throwing NPC.
  8. A few yards after dropping down onto the lighter-coloured path, do a full 180 degree turn and head back toward the barricade. The NPC will throw the keg to you a moment later. This part can take practice to get just right, but can shave valuable seconds of your run.
  9. Return to the hand-in NPC following the same course. A second or two after jumping the fence, and before reaching the tent, again do a sharp 180 degree turn and start the course again; the NPC will accept your turn-in a moment later. You'll need to immediately jump the fence, which can be tricky. Aim for the left part of the fence, which is lower.
Easier version

If jumping the fence and riding through the center of the blockade works is too tricky, follow this course instead:

  1. From the NPC, ride north to where the spiked barricades end, and turn right. You'll see the apple barrel directly ahead, without any further obstructions.
  2. From here, follow the optimal instructions above. If you're worried about missing the pick-up, wait until you receive notification before turning back.
  3. On the return, turn right at the final apple barrel, returning to the hand-in NPC by the same route.
Specific tips

Whatever the route, the Horde course features ample apple barrels, with little reason or good opportunity to skip them. Because of this, the player should keep the ram at full speed for the entire duration.

General tips
  • A tip for quick, easy course changes: Once you get your ram pointed on a clear straight path to an apple barrel or keg pick-up or drop-off point, rotate your camera to face the direction you'll want to travel after getting there. That way, when you reach your destination, you can press the right mouse button to change your heading instantly and accurately. The rams are always running, but the game still keeps track of whether your character is in run or stand mode. If you are in run mode many peoples' camera swings to face forward. You can just press your key bound to turn off movement. Your ram will still be running, but your camera will stay in place as if you were standing still.

You can also hold down your left mouse button after rotating the view to remain facing where you've turned the camera. While doing this, pressing the right mouse button will instantly change the direction as above.

Another tip to try and maximize your runs involves jumping. If you jump while your ram is Galloping, then in midair you switch to Canter, you can get a few seconds of Gallop speed with the fatigue cost of Canter. So with some good timing you can get 2 to 4 seconds of free Gallop time between the barrel thrower and the apples. Also for those without lag, take note of how soon you can turn around. It's much sooner than you may think.

Keep your thumb on the space bar to jump, because you will get hung up on scenery items, and jumping will usually release you. If that doesn't work, try quick turns.

If the Exhausted Ram debuff procs, you are kind of screwed; even if you are at a barrel, with zero fatigue, the debuff will run for its full 15 seconds. Don't sweat it, just do your best and get the most tokens you can out of the remainder of the run. If the debuff procs and your fatigue is still high, around 85, then trot or canter to the nearest barrel, don't gallop, then resume the run after you've cleared your fatigue.

Seconds count

To restate the point, if you can consistently shave seconds off your runs, you will get more tokens. Don't feel bad if you screw up, it is a learning process, and this run has all kinds of room for improving your technique. If you at least try, you will get some tokens. But the curve of run time vs how many tokens you get takes off asymptotically toward infinity as you approach a 30 second run. So, as your runs get very good, fractions of a second saved can accumulate to several tokens difference.

Need bag slots!

It is vital to ensure that you have bag slots available for the reins, the keg, the tokens you will be receiving, and if you are close to 200 tokens, for a new stack of tokens. If you accept the run with insufficient bag slots, you've used your run and you will not be able to get another until the time limit has passed. If the ram spawns, do not despawn it. Clear space while mounted and use the remainder of your time. If you despawn the ram, you've used your run. If you have no slot for the barrel, you will be able to do the runs, but will not receive the barrel and will earn no tokens. If you have no space for additional tokens, you will not receive the tokens for the run. If you have 199 tokens and no space, you will not receive one token for the run, you need to be able to receive two per run.

  • MoP 补丁 5.4.0 (2013-09-10): Nearly all references in quests and achievements of the requirement of being drunk have been removed and usually defers only to the use of Synthebrew Goggles.
  • Hotfix (2011-09-26): The Keg-Shaped Treasure Chest now contains 10-14 Brewfest Prize Tokens.
  • 大地的裂变 补丁 4.2.0 (2011-06-28): The Horde's Brewfest area has been moved due to the new landscape, along with a new path for the keg run.
  • Hotfix (2009-09-30): "Brewfest is a time of year where the focus is placed squarely on the celebration of fun and food. In order to give everyone enough time to truly experience this event (and after some fine tuning on the part of the event organizers), we will be extending the event two additional days. The festivities will end on October 5th at 11:59PM, so don’t miss it!"
This extension will most likely only apply to the 2009 Brewfest season.
Lasted from October 3rd through the 16th.
