Swift Lovebird questions

Postby Lysi » February 7th, 2012, 12:49 pm

What's the easiest way to get the 270 tokens? Warcraftpets just tweeted, "Non pet related, but if you really want the Swift Lovestrider without the hassle of dailies, farm 2700 Love tokens. Which is worse?"

But I thought the dailies (the 4 charms for leaders quests and the 2 other quests, and the once daily dungeon), was the way to farm tokens..? What am I missing? My hand is already achy from arthritis this week, and I'm not even sure I'm doing this right, lol. Also, I haven't found any lovely charms or lovely charm bracelets on the AH, can they be sold that way? I'd just buy the bird if I could, but I doubt the price will come down far enough for my budget.

Unless you're impatient or will not be online enough days of the holiday, it's much easier to get 270 Love Tokens by doing dailies, rather than by turning in charm bracelets to the vendor.

As you can get 30 Love Tokens per day from dailies, it will take 9 days of dailies to get the mount. 9 days of dailies require 36 Lovely Charm Bracelets, or 360 Lovely Charms.

You can also buy one Love Token by turning in one Lovely Charm Bracelet. Getting enough Love Tokens this way requires 2700 Lovely Charms.

I'm going to use the daily method, myself!

And although the charm bracelets cannot be placed on the AH because they are of limited duration, you Can trade them through a trade window.

Thanks for the info! I didn't know about the one bracelet for one token thing, that would be tedious! XD

I think I might farm the bracelets for the dailies with a low level alt. The higher your level, the more spread out the mobs are, takes forever.. And there's always someone grinding at the Fleshwerks already (that sounds dirty, lol).

The best place that I have found to grind for the bracelets and the Dark Moon fair kills is in the Deepholm zone, up above the where the good giant elementals are fighting the cave man mobs there is a mass of them that spawn continuously. Two or three of them drop down to run some kind of attack sequence while 20 or so stay on the ledge and can be farmed for ever. I complete the 250 kill requirement with loot potions and get "tiny treasures" filled with stuff.

I was able to get enough bracelets for the event week to complete the pet and mount in a few hours. That is, I farmed enough bracelets to compete the dailies at 35 tokens per day to get 270 and 40 = 310. And completed the DMF quest as well - they work together. I had to make a few trips to the base to see and repair.

I am a protection warrior and use AOE to take on as many of the troggs at a time that I can. The bracelets and "ears" fill up fast on that ledge above the cave. It is the northeast area just between the mushroom (red zone) and the throne.

Thing is the lovebird is boe so if you put effort into it you can farm a second one to sell at a later date. Either you do the dailies with an alt to get an extra mount to sell or you farm like a crazy person to get another 270 tokens on your main. If you just want a mount for yourself though the dailies should be enough.

I think this tokens farming thing is really great seeing as you don't -have- to do it, but there is still the option to. A friend of mine is on vacation and will miss more than half the event, but she still has the chance of getting enough tokens to finish everything because she can farm the charms or simply buy the bracelets off of someone else!

My favorite spot to farm so far has been one of the questing areas for the argent tournament in icecrown. The cultist type mobs there use the dynamic spawn timer and being a priest I just run and dot everything up, I never have to stop moving and once you get going the respawn rate becomes almost instant! :D

The argent tourney area is getting crowded on my server. I am even competing to compete my argent dailies. I still need a few of those pets :)

Yesterday Jarnsaxa got her Swift Lovebird, a cross between a flamingo and Ichabod Crane. Woohoo! Thanks for your help, everyone!
