Perhaps this container will be the once-per-character-per-day "loot trove" to be dropped by
Love is in the Air
events, as alluded to in a Blizzard forum post on this page:
I tried to get one on the last event day on PTR but the group could not kill the boss. :(
Did anyone get one to see what is inside? Or can you "datamine" the contents somehow?
I opened one before the event ended, and it contained one the necklaces the boss can drop. The rest of my group also got necklaces from it, all from Hummel's loot table.
This isn't a Nirvana reference.
It's a "reference" (albeit very VERY loose) to the traditional "heart shaped box" of chocolates that people have been giving to their significant other for longer than the members of Nirvana were a twinkle in daddies eye.
The SONG "Heart Shaped Box" is a reference TO those boxes.
1: Cut a hole in a box
2: (( SNL fans know what to do here. ))
3: Make her open the box... and that's the way you do it!
The common drops from the seasonal bosses (the necklaces from Hummel, the trinkets from Coren, etc.) will still drop from the bosses themselves. The rare items, however, will come from a container like the Heart-Shaped Box that drops from the boss for each person in the group once per day. Under this method one can do the boss an infinite number of times per day and acquire all of his/her common drops while not being able to farm for the rare drops.

Just got the
from this box.
This is a reward from the Dungeon Finder, once daily, from defeating
It seems you can only queue from an NPC in a major city, not the dungeon finder itself (initially, it is availible afterwards from the dungeon finder, but can not be accessed through the drop down menu, and will dissapear from your dungeon finder menu if you logout or reload ui.)
In 2011, this box has a chance of containing:
Big Love Rocket
Forever Lovely Rose
Vile Fumigator's Mask
It also contains 24 Justice Points (these are not located in the box itself, but are received upon looting the box. (You will see a message "There is no loot", but you will still get 24 Justice Points if no other rewards are in the box)
I just killed the trio for the first time today and upon defeating them, I did not receive a Heart-Shaped Box as a reward. I checked my bags to make sure it wasn't overlooked but sadly, there is no such item in my inventory. I went to try to queue up again but it no longer displayed the Rewards blurb on the LFG page.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
To que for this event (As Horde) you have to talk to Steemwheedle Shyster in Org. He is by the cactus in front of Grommash Hold.
Somebody put their big love rocket in a heart-shaped box. Fair dos.
I am not particularly keen on the looting for the heart shaped box. Im not trying to say I want blues/purples to drop everytime, but at the least i would appreciate it if the loot box would show up so I dont think that this is bugged, the "there is no loot" did display but only for 2-3 seconds merely not enough time to actually catch this, let alone not realize that this wasnt a bug.
You can queue up for the first SFK run during Love is in the Air by using this script to select the right event in the LFD frame:
You can select your roles and join the queue without having to talk to the NPC at all, yay for saving travel time!
Perhaps this should have been called a "Heart Container"
I'm fairly certain the drop rates are off, since Wowhead doesn't record openings of the item without any item inside of it.
They should rename it "Screw-U-Box-Haha", cuz its always empty :-/
Thumbs up if you agree ;-)
I didn't get one today, so i sent a ticket, then later on i received one in mailbox. My ticket was never responded to, so i'm not sure if GM sent it or not.
Just posting this in case others had the same problem.
According to a GM, it is working as intended with no loot coming from the box other than Justice Points.
Silly me forgot to screen shot this to submit it.
I got the
coulda been worse
When I opened it, there was nothing in it but I got 24 justice points.
The Crown Chemical Co.
today and didn't get my
. I didn't know why but a couple of hours later I received a mail from The Postmaster.
"We recovered a lost item in the twisting nether and noted that it was yours. Please find said object enclosed."
You can get multiple rare items, along with your Justice Points in one Heart-Shaped Box.
I just got a Vile Fumigator's Mask and Forever Lovely Rose in the same box.
You can definitely also get a rare item if you're justice capped. I'm capped and received pet and gas mask in a box.
Is the drop for this reset at the normal server reset time, or is this a 24-hours from when you last got it drop?
Alright, do I have to be 85 to get anything? Because in all honesty, I have not gotten a single thing out of this box the ENTIRE event. I've gotten justice points, but there hasn't been any message saying that there was nothing else in the box. I saw it the first day, but any time after that there has not been a message telling me there was no loot. And when I try to open my tradeskill, I can't because it says I'm busy looting when the roll for whatever necklace dropped has already passed.
If someone in RL gave me a Heart Shaped Box for valentines, and I opened it to find a note saying "nothing here" and 25p I would be less than impressed. This is the equivalent.
i got the
and the also 24 justice points in 1 box :L wish i got the love rocket tho :(
Anyone else finding themselves with nothing to show with the event ending 5 days from now, seeing as how it ends at 2am the 22nd before dailies roll over? I even snuck in that extra random dungeon that you could do when the event was started at 3am the 6th before the dailies rolled over.
Not overly complaining but the drop rate for just the worthless things like Heartbreaker is excruciatingly bad. Probably like most people, my main goal is the Rocket but I would be fine with just the pet. But at this rate it seems like it's an impossibility. It's like they kept the ridiculous drop rates from when you could just farm as much as you want and forced everyone to only be able to do it for 2 and a half weeks.
Ah, well here wishing everyone else good luck with 5 more days left.
Note that you can also get doubles of rare items.
Just got my 2nd Rose.
Random loot drops suck. I have recieved the Heartbreaker, the Rose and two gaskmasks and the rest "no loot". I am a pet collecter and all I want is the pet... and yet I know others that want the toys. I would gladly trade the lot for the pet. I have done this every day and it's incredibly frustrating. I'm geared for raids so 24JP is worthless to me.
I would rather have all these BoE items like the Christmas pets. I'd happily make someone a few hundred gold to aquire this! I should be grateful I've got items at all though as it seems some haven't had anything.
33% drop for
? I'm laughing like a maniac
I don't mind a very low drop chance - what I DO mind however was that this was changed from a chance to drop from the boss, to a chance to get one in a once-a-day Heart-Shaped Box. I want the chance to at least ROLL on the damn thing. I've seen it drop in 2 of my groups in the past week and i'm not afraid to say I was jealous as hell, since my Heart-Shaped boxes didn't contain anything (other than the prerequisite JP). This should be farmable like all the other mounts.
only 3 trys back.. still nothing but 'no loot' bags... god its annoying...
This is NOT a reference to the song of Nirvana. It is not called 'box of chocolates' since there is no chocolates, neither it is called 'box which can contain mount and other stuff' because it would sound stupid and it is not called 'triangular shaped box' since it´s heart shaped! Not everything in WoW is a reference to something irl.(##RESPBREAK##)524##DELIM##thaia##DELIM##Removed bad language.
My son and I have been doing the dungeon everyday on our different characters for the whole event and neither one of us has gotten anything besides Justice Points.
Then another player that my son just did the dungeon with opened their box and got a wasteling, fumigator mask and forever lovely rose from one box. All 3 from one box. What? Really?
This box for me and everyone I know, generally drops nothing, 'There is no loot' and 24 justice points, so the percentages of item drop rates may be inaccurate.
I love how the drop rate on the Big Love Rocket is so low it isn't even recorded in the drop table of the box.
I killed the Trio every single day for the duration of the event. Got a box each day. None of them contained loot. I understand the concept of random drops, but this is quite ridiculous already. The event is over and all I got was ~400 Justice Points. All I can buy with that are level 80 relics. Thanks, RNG.
hmmm thats weird that im reading everyone able to do the boss at level 83&84 but for some reason my dk and druid still can't no matter what methods i tried to get in there. must be something with just my server.
weird thing is, after i looted this box (giving me the usual "there is no loot" message) i tried disenchanting some stuff, but disenchanting got blocked with the message "you are busy looting". confirmed this more than once.
The drop rates must have been abysmally low. I went the entire holiday only ever finding two items across both my 85s, my brother only ever found one item, and as far as I'm aware the people in my guild that had any interest in this never got anything.
I understand RNG can be a !@#$%, but this was ridiculous specially when these items are just toys. My condolences to anyone who didn't get what they wanted, or anything at all. I got very lucky and found the wasteling on the last day of the event when I had already lost all hope.
My results for 2011 Love is in the Air event:
80 boxes (5 characters at 84+, 16 days).
2 Toxic Wastelings.
2 Vile Fumigator's mask.
3 Forever Lovely Roses.
73 empty boxes.
I didn't keep track at Halloween or Midsummer, but the boxes for those events were definitely much more generous.
I have run this every day on 5 lvl 85 toons for 11 days now
And I have yet to get one drop of loot
EFF THIS HOLIDAY - Major fail on this one Blizz
Heart-shaped coffin (message of the Nirvana song)
Now also drops 5-10
instead of "There is no loot!" I mean, who eats an entire box of chocolates before giving it to someone anyway?
This Box now also includes 5-10 Love Tokens.
That will make farming those lovestriders a bit shorter than expected at least ;).
Just opened this box on 4 different characters. Each box contained 26 justice points and 5-10 Love Tokens. I think this might be the new form of "empty".
Also, it seems like you can queue for it using the LFG tab without talking to any of the holiday NPCs. Boss still drops blue necklaces, but now they're ilvl 346 (equivalent of heroic cata dungeon gear).
Just finished the boss on an alt and it didn't give a Heart Shaped Box, it was fine on all of my other alts. Let's hope this was just a one time glitch.
Does it still drop those two head pieces?
Since the brewfest event you are always going to get something now. For this event, you will always get at least Love Tokens.
I didn't get a box from finishing the boss for the first time this year, don't downrate badweather.
We're probably not the only people who this happened to.
I did get a grisly trophy though from the fight, not sure if it stopped the box from spawning or not, happen to anyone else?
Edit: Box just came in the mail :D
One thing you have to realize is the chance for it to drop isn't truly correct because it is showing as only being opened 8036 times as of me writing this. The figures would be more accurate if more people used the wowhead uploader. (I just figure the only people uploading are people that have gotten something out of the box)
Guess that's what we get when wowhead cleans out all the data a few months ago so the new drop rates could be more accurate.
You know I have never ever seen the Big Love Rocket. I haven't seen anyone riding or anything. I kinda believe it's just a myth lol
Wowhead hasn't reset the data for this year's event. Love tokens now drop from the box guaranteed, and they're nowhere to be seen. As they're actually a physical item and not an invisible currency, they'd appear on the list if this was an accurate table.
Incidentally, it's also been at 8036 loots since day one of the event. There hasn't even been an update, nevermind a reset. :x
I got a new complaint!
Just a few things about the 'Love is in the Air' World Event for Mists of Pandaria (or 5.1 as of this moment)
- You must be level
to queue up for the fight.
- The necklace items that drop are ilvl 480.
- You still get the heart shaped box and can only obtain it once a day per character.
- The items inside are the same as previous years, which includes the mount at a very very low drop chance. (again, like previous years)
Edit: It appears that you can be level 89 according to some reports. Just updating this post.
Good luck to everyone.
i just did it on my 89s.........
I got 38 and 37 vp out of this box respectively on the same toon so I would assume you get 25 on average (I happen to have the valor buff which would make the total 37.5 explaining the 37 and 38)
only drops from
, not from the event-boss how it's said in the event article
" the extremely rare Big Love Rocket, dropped by the event-only boss Apothecary Hummel in Shadowfang Keep".
And proof for this is the answer from a GM :
" Greetings Talisse,
Thank you for contacting us.
The Big Love Rocket can't be obtained from the apothecaries themselves, in order to give a fair and equal chance to all players without having them reset the instance multiple times a day.
We're wishing you the best of luck for this year !

Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.
I can tell you what you're not going to get though, that damned rocket T.T
I never have any luck on this.. lol
I highly urge that you open these before the holiday is over. After killing the Chemical Crew one last time before our Raid I neglect to open this. Once the raid is over Sunday night shortly after the holiday completed I find the Heart Shaped Box missing from my bags. I open a ticket and the GM basically tells me I should have opened it before Love is in the Air ended. So FYI, don't miss out on your valuable chances to get the mount.
" Any holiday related items that were present at the ending of the holiday period were removed by the server. This is intended, and regrettably not something that the GameMaster staff can change. I would highly recommend opening/using any holiday related items as they are gained, rather than waiting for a later time, as this risks being put into this situation. Apologies for any confusion"
This bag is also dropping 25 Valor Points in 2014 (was Justice Points in 2013). A very welcome bonus for those of us trying to grind out the mount... would have been nice if they'd thrown some Lesser Charms in as well, since the majority of these bags will be obtained by those with many many alts ;)
i just ran 10 of my toons 2 toxic wasteling and rest love charms just started this week 13 more days to go
I got like everything x2 but the mount on 6 toons oh well theres always next year
I did all of my 10 characters' event bosses this morning before work.
I rushed it and was still late, so I did not open any of the boxes before 10:00 am close-off of the event today.
I tried to open them later and they had all disappeared, even though the item does not mention 'Required Love is in the Air'.
*sob* for me, don't let it happen to you.
There is a loose reference to the song from the movie The Rock here. The main theme is titled 'Hummel Gets the Rockets'.
It has been confirmed by Blizzard that this year's event
is and will remain
"Moving forward, we're tuning loot and difficulty for the holiday dungeons to max level, and LFG requirements reflect that."
My goal was to collect all the boxes until the day before the holiday was over, then open them all at once.
I got antsy and opened like 8 at once - Nothin...
This year summary (2015):
Total 37 kills with 3 chars lvl 100:
It was my 6th love event and there were years when i run boss with 7-8 chars every day, still without mount drop, without toy drop and with 5x drop of Toxic Wasteling together.
As far as I can currently tell as of 6.2, you must be level 100 to queue.
Wish they didn't require a tank or healer to queue for this....@#$% is so easy....dumb to wait 15 min as a dps
I wish they would update this already... its been too long since it has been updated, all of this is old news and the Big Love Rocket isn't even on the contained items list...
To check whether Hummel has been killed today, copy and paste this command into the chat window:
If a "true" appears in the chat window, Hummel has been killed today; "false" indicates the opposite.
Doesn't it have a chance to drop the
big love rocke
t in 2016?
pretty gd lame that they just disappear if you dont open them
WoWhead doesn't even show the rocket mount on the drop list from this box, it must be so damn rare.
Ok time to talk in 2018 Legion terms
which is the rarest mount in the game
It also drops
pet but the rest i am afraid is useless stuff + 20ish gold. But let's talk about the even and the rocket
it drops from
and not the bosses corpses
can be looted once per day per character
it has 1 in 3333 chances to drop which is around 0.03%
only available during the
Love is in the Air
event which is once per year from 7th Feb-21 Feb
You can queue to the dungeon with all toons level 16+ so the real farming starts now. However, only levels above 100+ will be able to get the
, the rest - low levels will be looting a green version of it -
which DOES NOT have a chance to drop the mount
Don't go crazy if it doesn't drop this year... the chances aren't very high to drop in a single year but it's better than not trying at all
Is not a dual seat mount
You have 15 days to try so you better not skip any
You cannot join more than 10 instances in an hour and for some reason this counts when doing this even with your alts. Good thing is that you queue, you get the error that you cannot teleport to dungon but you if your team kills the bosses you still get the
while in town!
If you are lucky enough to drop for you - be happy, it also gives a feat of strength -
Rolling Death Knights won't work. You have to complete the whole storyline before being offered to queue for the dungeon. Same for boosted or trial characters.
the blue version doesnt drop the mount
It doesn't list the Love Rocket as a drop from this box.
Does that mean that the Love Rocket has never dropped for anyone who was using the WoWHead data collection addon?
Love is in the Air (February 8 - February 21)
What levels can get
has a 1/3333 chance to obtain that is 0.03% drop chance.
has a 0/0 chance to obtain that is a 0.0% drop drop chance; classifies
No que for
the crown chemical co.
Specific dungeon que for
the crown chemical co.
que available until you hit 20+
I'd love if you could buy this from the trader. Even if the festival currency price was astronomical and reflected two years of farming this event. But still it'd be something concrete, a goal to work towards.
169 attempts in 2018. Missed a few days, but got a decent sample size. Anyways, results below!
x1225 - 728.8%
x10 - 5.9%
x6 - 3.5%
x6 - 3.5%
x2 - 1.1%
x0 - 0%
I had one toon loot both Toxic Wasteling and Forever-Lovely Rose out of one box. So multiples are possible out of the same box.
Kinda worrying that the Big Love Rocket isn't currently listed in the "contains" tab.
Anyone know what level we get the box instead of the carton this year?
~400 attempts in this year and just opened one of these and saw the arrow that indicates you have two pages of loot that has dropped. I don't think my heart has ever jumped so high.
Turns out it was just the pet, the toy and a helmet all dropping at the same time, alongside the gold and the tokens.
That might be the biggest tease I've ever had in my life.
This year I used Korrak Event to prepare 16 characters for rocket farm and haven't seen a single drop from any group I've been on.. Still 2 days, but hopes are fading away. I guess if the Anniversary Event will be the same in 2020, I will prepare about 25+ characters to farm it in 2021... *cry*
Can we start speculating the level requirement for 2021?
Will it be level 50? 59? 60 only?
Im quite sad blizzard wont share informations about this when people ask about in their forums, its making me really nervous like evey year after a new expansion..
The only official reply that I found while browsing forums is this thread
TLDR: They(GMs) don't know
It is confirmed that they're working on a hotfix to make it available for level 50+ characters. Good luck with this year's farming!
High probability that you now need to be Level 50 (as of 9.0 level squish) to receive the epic version of this box. Caveat: not tested on a Level 49 - going to level it before doing the dungeon!. Level 46 alt got the plain version.
Who here played for about 10-15 years, farming this event each year and still hasnt gotten it?
Please increase the drop rate BLIZZARD before the franchise retires LOL
