Great guide, very helpful for someone like me who hasn't participated in previous festivals. Just had a quick question, I play on Horde, so if I use an Alliance character to complete Elders of the Alliance will it count towards the achievement for the festival on my horde characters?

It should, but I haven't been able to test whether the Alliance elders will offer their quests to Alliance players. If you could test and tell me whether it works, I'd be very grateful. I won't be able to test before Tuesday, as I am currently abroad.

You are wrong. The single acheivements are NOT account-wide only the meta acheivement. That means you could do the alliance acm with an ally char and the horde acm with a horde char. but than you are missing an acm for both.

The Cataclysm zone Elders have not reset this year (Well, for me on Alliance / Dalaran US). The rest have.

I used the conditional tense, so I can't be "wrong" :P

All I did was make an assumption. I'll check things tomorrow and I'll update the guide accordingly.

I've just created a horde character on a random server and all my Lunar Festival achievements are completed. So you can do Elders of the Alliance on an Alliance character and that will give it to all your Horde characters (same for Elders of the Horde).

I don't understand why people make erroneous statements with such confidence. I mean, it's not like it takes long to check how the account-bound achievement system works.

I can also confirm this since the Elders of the Alliance achievement is on my achivement panel and it did count towards the meta, so I'm glad to see that I don't have to risk it with my Horde characters hehe.
Again, thanks for the great guide.

Sorry for the lack of answer, but you should have made a specific topic for that question ;)

Are there no rewards for Lunar Festival?  Before they awarded a Dragon Mount, now there is no mount and no rewards except achievement?

I can't recall any mounts, especially no dragons in connection with Lunar Festival. Except the Violet Proto-drake which is not a Lunar Festival-only mount. There is 1-1 pet for horde and alliance (festival lantern), and that is all as far as I know.

Feedback about me and my work is always appreciated.
