Valentines Boss, or "Apothecary of LOVE!"

The Valentines holiday starts in two days and I know most of you are (or should be) as excited as I am. I'm particularly anxious because of the new boss, the fact that Birdy doesn't have any level 80 friends yet, and how much I want her (and another alt) to get that pretty new PINK mount.

The mount definitely drops off the Valentines boss, according to Wowhead's data-mined feat of strength "Big Love Rocket."

For those of you who, like me, don't have people to run you through this year (or if your character isn't 80 yet), try to hold your dancing guts down so you don't have a heart-attack. I know every sensible person will want (nay, NEED) the rocket, and that includes you, but do yourself a favor and try to not wake up in the middle of the night stressing that you'll have to grind forever to get one. There are other years to get this puppy, even if it means waiting for everyone else in the world (of Warcraft) to get one so that you can roll uncontested.

Personally, I'm waking up in the night thinking "I want a pink mount nao!" But I have to remind myself: "Self, you has a phoenix. Chill. The Valentines boss is not going anywhere, family group is leveling to 80 on casual alliance alts, and you'll get your pretty pink mount on Birdy and Windwhistler if you're just patient and don't freak out."

Then I pat myself condescendingly on the head and go back to sleep.

Boss: Apothecary Hummel
Where: Shadowfang Keep (Silverpine Forest)

I don't have specific details on the fight or where he is in Shadowfang Keep, but you can be sure there will be some info available the very first day, usually on Wowwiki.

In the meantime, please feel free to look over last year's Valentines notes if there is anything you may have forgotten, and as usual I'll have changes and notes up for this year once the holiday starts.

Also, good luck with Peddlefeet this time around, everyone!


  1. Just to point out for all those people who, like me, didn't get the Be Mine achievement last year. This year you simply have to eat the candies listed. This means people who get extras can sell them on the AH for the people like me who will most likely have terrible luck and need them.

    On a side note, this is my last achievement for the What A Long Strange Trip It's Been - but I got Peddlefeet last year! Strange how luck works out for us all.

  2. Can you really sell them on the AH? I can't because of the "you cannot sell limited duration items" thing. There are a lot of people reporting that the bracers are sold on the AH.

    Do they all make this things up or is it different in the US and these things can be sold on the AH on a US server?

  3. Yes, you can sell the bracelets on the AH. I'm getting 20-50g off each.

  4. I just tried again. I got a "You cannot auction a conjured items." error message.

  5. Huh. I guess it is a difference between EU & US.
