Down with the Dark Iron

Dark Iron GuzzlerDefend the Brewfest Camp from the Dark Iron attack and complete the quest. “This One Time, When I Was Drunk…”

Achievement Location

To the southwest mountain base of Ironforge, breweries and partakers set up camp to celebrate the annual Brewfest. While the event organizer promises it to be the perfect holiday, Dark Iron dwarves occasionally – every 30 minutes for 5 minutes – “attack” the free brew being dispensed for everyone. They arrive from the underground through their large drilling machines.

WoW Achievement Guide

When the attack is in motion:

Complimentary Brewfest Sampler Drink a Complimentary Brewfest Sampler on the table. This gives you an item of the same name in your inventory. While aiming at an invading Dark Iron Guzzler, right-click on the item to throw it at them. (It’d be faster doing this by assigning the item to an action button. Or even better, create a targeting macro!) Nearby NPC’s will throw you more mugs for you to hit the enemy dwarves with.

There are big mugs that randomly appear on the ground that grants you a “whirlwind effect” to stop more drunken invaders.

If the invaders fails to destroy all the kegs, they will retreat and leave behind a big cog on the ground. Interacting with it gives you the quest “This One Time, When I Was Drunk…”

Personal Note

How I got the achievement was a rather fortunate albeit boring one. I happened to arrive at the festival grounds after the attack has already been thwarted. All that was left was the big cog lying there with a big quest marker above it. While an easier option, I suggest participating in the defense. It’s a fun one!

Other Notes

While the invasion happens a lot in a single day, the cog that is left behind can only be looted for Brewfest Prize Tokens every 12 hours.

A good deal of players are needed to successfully defend the booze. Encourage other players nearby to not just spectate the attack but actively throw mugs at the Dark Iron dwarves as well.

If possible, do not lose any of the three kegs to the dwarves. With one lost, for instance, the remaining two will be swarmed by more dwarves.
