Ask Jeeves – Lovely Charms


Whether you’re just trying to make your life a little easier by saving up for your holiday Daily Quests, or looking to buy (and sell?) the holiday mount, “Love is in the Air” usually means that you’re going to be doing some grinding.  Sadly, this grinding does not involve a Significant Other, or even a picture of the Significant Other.


No, this type of grinding involves killing green (or better) mobs to get Lovely Charms.  Ten of these bad boys combine to make a Lovely Charm Bracelet, which sells to the holiday vendor for a Love Token, which is then used… you know what?  Screw it.  You know how this works by now.  If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be farming the Charms in the first place.


Which begs the question:  Where the Hell does one go to farm Lovely Charms?


I’m glad you asked.  Seriously.  It gives me something to write about.


– Mjordin Combatants on Savage Ledge:  The training ground north of Jotunheim in Icecrown is filled with scrappy gentlemen with an impressive respawn rate.  The one drawback to this spot is that it’s open world, which means anyone can come by and try to scoop up the mobs.  On a high pop server, this may be more of an issue.  If you’re planning on using this spot, try to hit it up on off-hours.

– Trogs in Fractured Front, Deepholm:  Another open world spot, but one that is quick to get to.  The trogs are quite plentiful, but they have a bit of a longer respawn rate and take a little longer to kill.  However, if you loot these bad boys you can make some gold off the drops.  As the video shows, a Potion of Treasure Finding can really jack up your gold making potential.

–  Unstable Corruptions in Throne of Tides:  There are those who say that this is the best place to farm Lovely Charms.  Claims of 100 charms in ten minutes have often been reported.  However, most people who are not rocking raid gear (or a 390+ gear score) will not be able to get to the Unstable Corruptions solo.  To reach them, you have to kill the first boss of the zone:  Lady Naz’jar.  That bitch does not play around, but she does play for keeps.  If you can get someone to help kill her and then make your way to the Unstable Corruptions, you’ll be sitting pretty.

– Slags in Halls of Lightning:  The best place to farm the Lovely Charms, IMO.  Fast respawns, plenty of non-elite mobs to mow down, low hp, and easy to get to.  It’s also in an instance, so you won’t be fighting anyone else for the respawns.

(Edit:  There’s talk that the slags may have been nerfed.  If that’s the case, you might want to check out Throne of Tides.)

Good luck with whatever your plans are for the bracelets.  Have fun killing mobs for hours upon mind-numbing hours.
