TL;DR – You'll need to farm 4 Charm Bracelets daily to get a minimum of 25x Love Tokens every day!
(You CAN get the
Swift Lovebird Mount and Love Boat Toy, but you absolutely have to do the
Crushing the Crown and
Follow the Recipe dailies, which brings the total to 33 Tokens daily.** You need to be doing this without fail, as missing even a day might hinder your progress (the event runs from February 12-26, giving you a 14 day window, and the most expensive prizes will require 9 days of work with the Max Token method)).
Are you currently unsubbed, but have played WoW long enough to care about holiday items and the Toybox?
Don't wanna pay $15 or the 110k+ gold for a Token just to get a Hearthstone, Pets, Toys, and a Mount, no matter how cool they are?
Well, as luck would have it, you can actually get the 10-270 Love Tokens required for everything on a Veteran Starter Account!
This can also be achieved on a non-Veteran Starter, but it's easier to do it on a Veteran's, as they're still allowed to create Allied Race characters, meaning they can hop straight into the holiday grind without grinding levels first.
YOU WILL NEED:
Any Level 17+ Mage with the main four hub Teleports unlocked (you'll get the 2 gold needed from the Capital City quests!)
The Lovely Charm Collector's Kit – you get this by accepting the "A Gift For.. (Leader)" Quest or talking to Peddlefeet
To Modernize the Provisioning of Azeroth for NOT easy Alliance Shadowfang Keep access **
The Questline: Crown Chemical Co. completed to access the two extra Dailies **
Full set of Heirlooms (for kill speed and survival)
RIDING! Which means getting to Level 20, or..
Void Elf, Lightforged Draenei or Dark Iron Dwarf unlocked for a Level 20 Alliance Mage
Nightborne or Mag'har unlocked for a Level 20 Horde Mage
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALLIANCE PLAYERS:
** Keep in mind that the 33 Token upper limit is only (feasibly) accessible to Horde, because even with the To Modernize the Provisioning of Azeroth toy, the closest you can get is Andorhal, which means a long run through Hillsbrad Foothills > Silverpine Forest.
Alliance Mages CANNOT set their Hearths very close at all to Shadowfang Keep, so going here every day is entirely up to whether or not you want to put up with a long flight each day.
I'd strongly recommend going for the 33 Tokens route on a Horde Mage instead, for your sanity's sake.
CHARMS FOR THE CHARM GOD (AND HOW IT WORKS):
Besides the Capital City Daily (chosen between Bonbon Blitz,
A Cloudlet of Classy Cologne, and
A Perfect Puff of Perfume)..
Lovely Charms are your main source of Love Tokens, as you need to combine 10 of these to form a Lovely Charm Bracelet for your main dailies.
There are four Leaders (Faction-specific) you can turn these Bracelets into for 5 Tokens a piece every day.
EXTRA LOVE TOKENS PLS?
You can manually turn in Charm Bracelets for 1x Love Token each at the Lovely Merchants in each Capital City.
This is an incredibly tedious method because the Lovely Charm droprate is fairly low, but if you're in desperate need of just a few more Tokens for a reward you're close to, you can grind it out without fretting over having missed a day.
THE REWARDS! (TIME AND TOKENS NEEDED – ROUNDED UP FOR SAFETY NET):
(TOY) Romantic Picnic Basket – 10 Tokens, easiest to get
(HOLIDAY XMOG) Lovely Dress Box – 20 Tokens, chance at a different coloured Dress each box
(HOLIDAY XMOG) Dinner Suit Box – 20 Tokens, chance at a different coloured Suit each box
(PET) Truesilver Shafted Arrow – 40 Tokens " "
(TOY) Sturdy Love Fool – 100 Tokens (4 days @25 — 4 days @33)
(TOY) Love Boat – 270 Tokens (11 days @25 — 9 days @33)
(MOUNT) Swift Lovebird – 270 Tokens " "
(@33 values are similar only because of rounding up – 100 Tokens for example technically takes 3.03 (repeating days, meaning you would need an extra few Tokens to actually get to 100 in 3 days. All these values have been rounded up so that a reward that technically takes 2 & 1/2 days to get is labelled as 3, to save confusion.)
Simply put, I'm a collector, but I unsubbed from WoW until 8.1.5 launches for them sweet thicc boys and voodoo gals.
I'd rather not wait until next year when I might be actively subbed again to get that new, shiny Hearthstone, so I find workarounds with what I've got already unlocked instead. Sharing it with the community is just a part of that.
Special thanks to: my partner, my somehow intact sanity, ya'll supporters from my Lunar Festival guide and these two lovely test Mages!
Though I feel like I've covered everything here, leave a comment if you're a bit confused over something. No harm in asking questions, especially when it's a workaround!
