Achievement Guide: A Fool for Love! <3

February 12th, 2009

Disclaimer: This post was accurate as of patch 3.0.9.

To get most of these achievements, you need to know the basics of the Love is in the Air event.  Here are the key steps to mastering the event:

  1. Buy [Perfume Bottle] or [Cologne Bottle] and a ton of [Love Token] from an innkeeper in a major (old world) city.
  2. Put on some Cologne or Perfume.  With Perfume, you can interact with male NPCs, with Cologne, you can interact with females.
  3. While wearing Cologne or Perfume, talk to NPCs to get [Pledge of Adoration: {Cityname}] from City Guards and [Gift of Adoration: {Cityname}] from any other NPCs.
  4. When you’ve gotten an Adoration gift, you’ll receive the debuff called [Adored], and you cannot receive another Adoration gift/pledge for an hour.  However, you can continue to talk to NPCs and receive [Pledge of Friendship: {Cityname}] and [Gift of Friendship: {Cityname}].
  5. You may also receive a debuff called [Heartbroken] which lasts for 1 hour (of game time, logging out pauses the timer!) To get rid of this debuff so you can continue getting gifts, find someone who is willing to mend your heart.  Large cities should have lots of people willing to do this.
  6. Friendship and Adoration Gifts/Pledges contain an “item”.  Each city has 3 “items” to collect. Pledges of Loyalty and Cards are only available from City Guards the third item is only available from non-guards.
  7. When you collect 5 of an item, you can combine them.
  8. When you have done this for each of the 3 items, you can combine those to create a [{Cityname} Gift Collection].
  9. When you’ve done this for all 3 major cities, you can combine them to create a [Horde Gift Collection] or [Alliance Gift Collection].
  10. Take this faction gift to a Peddlefoot NPC standing near your favourite faction leader (Thrall, for example!) and turn in the quest [Gift Giving] (Horde/Alliance) .  You’ll to choose a reward and you’ll also get a [Box of Chocolates].
  11. Repeat until all achievements are completed!

Now that you know how most of the event works, here are the specifics of the achievements!

[Heartmender] Mend 20 broken hearts with Unbestowed Friendship Bracelets.

Occasionally your Adoration Gifts/Pledges will contain [Unbestowed Friendship Bracelets].  These are used to remove the Heartbroken debuff from other players.  My advice when you are looking to use some of your Bracelets is to stand in the middle of a city and wait for people to ask to be mended, or watch people as they come by and check for the debuff.

[Flirt With Disaster] Get completely smashed, put on your best perfume, throw a handful of rose petals on Jeremiah Payson (Horde)/Sraaz (Alliance) and then kiss him. You’ll regret it in the morning.

If you have a [Bouquet of Red Roses], you can use this for your petals, but the [Bouquet of Ebon Roses] will not work.  If you don’t have one, you can use [Handful of Rose Petals] which can be found in Adoration Gifts/Pledges or received as a reward from the Gift Giving quest.

  1. Make sure you are wearing perfume (not cologne!)
  2. Bring enough alcohol to get you good and smashed.
  3. /kiss, and then use your Pedals on him.

Sraaz is a gnome who wanders around the Great Forge in Ironforge selling pies, and Jeremiah Payson is the cockroach vendor in Undercity.

EDIT: There is NO alcohol vendor in Undercity.  So you will have to bring some with you from another city, or use a [Brewfest Pony Keg] if you’ve got one!

[Nearest and Dearest] Complete the Love is in the Air storyline quest beginning with the Dangerous Love quest.

[Dangerous Love (Horde)] starts in Undercity near the bank or [Dangerous Love (Alliance)] starts in Stormwind.  The quest line is pretty easy, mostly just running around and talking to people.  Make sure you click the cauldron at the end, or you won’t get the achievement!

[Nation of Adoration] Obtain a Gift of Adoration from each of the cities listed below.

The cities for each side are the three major old world cities.

In Step 3 of my list above, you must talk to the non-guard NPCs to receive a Gift of Adoration for the achievement.  This can only be done once an hour, so it will take you 3 hours to get these.

[Sweet Tooth] Sample the Love is in the Air candies listed below.

[Box of Chocolates] can be a reward from the Adoration Gifts/Pledges, and you will also receive one each time you complete Gift Giving.  It will contain some (if not all) of the candies needed!  They have some pretty nice buffs… bring them along to raids!

[My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose] Obtain a Bouquet of Red or Ebon Roses during the Love is in the Air celebration.

The [Bouquet of Red Roses] is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.  If you have it from a previous year… great!  Otherwise, you’ll need to kill one of these bosses in Northrend to get [Bouquet of Ebon Roses].  Normal and heroic modes both work.

  • Maiden of Grief (Halls of Stone)
  • Prince Keleseth (Utgarde Keep)
  • Prince Taldaram (Ahn’kahet: The Old Kingdom)

[Shafted!] Shoot 10 players with the Silver Shafted Arrow.

[Silver Shafted Arrow] is a possible reward from Adoration Gifts/Pledges, and you can also get 5 from the Gift Giving quest.  Here’s a little trick though: you only need ONE arrow to finish this!  If you interrupt the casting on the arrow, it’ll still count, but will not use the arrow.

[Lonely?] Join someone in Dalaran at their Romantic Picnic during the Love is in the Air celebration.

[Romantic Picnic Basket] is a rare reward from a Adoration Plege or Gift.  When you or someone else uses it, it’ll set up a little picnic tent.  if you don’t have one, hang around in Dalaran for a while, and someone will surely set one up!  Just click on the little basket that’s on the floor to sit, and hope someone will join you.

[The Rocket's Pink Glare] Shoot off 10 Love Rockets in 20 seconds or less.

[Love Rocket] can be a reward from Adoration Gift/Pledges and also a reward from Gift Giving.  I advise you to put it on your action bar temporarily when you get enough of them, because these rockets require you to target an area.  This way you can use a keybinding to make sure you do it quick enough!

[Fistful of Love] Use a Handful of Rose Petals on each of the race/class combinations listed below.

  • Gnome Warlock
  • Night Elf Priest
  • Tauren Druid
  • Undead Warrior
  • Draenei Paladin
  • Human Death Knight
  • Orc Shaman
  • Troll Rogue
  • Blood Elf Mage
  • Dwarf Hunter

[Handful of Rose Petals] can be a reward from Adoration Gift/Pledges and also a reward from Gift Giving.  Hang around in Dalaran and keep an eye open for these race/class combinations.  If you’re looking for someone in your own faction, you can query to see if there are any around and maybe whisper them to meet up.  For example, “/who Troll Rogue Dalaran” will list all Troll Rogues in Dalaran!

[Be Mine!] Use the Bag of Candies to create each of the hearts listed below.

The [Bag of Candies] can be a bit tough to get your hands on. Like the Love Fool or Romantic Picnic,  the only way to get it is a chance from a Gift/Pledge of Adoration.  However, you must use your own to complete this, you cannot share your Bag of Candies with anyone else.  It will create little candies with cute sayings, and these can be traded – however, trading them will not count towards the achievement – you must actually create them yourself!

[I Pitied The Fool] Pity the Love Fool in the locations specified below.

The [Love Fool] can be received from a Gift/Pledge of Adoration.  However, you don’t have to use your own Love Fool – if someone else has one you can /pity on it just the same.  Also, you can still get the achievement if you use it on the remains of the fool, after it’s exploded!

Congrats!  With just a lot hourly gift getting, you should hopefully be a Love Fool with hardly any effort!
