A Lunar Festival elder.

During the Lunar Festival, 84 Lunar Festival Elders appear around the world; some are located in towns, others in instances, and yet more are simply in the wild. You can receive a  [Coin of Ancestry] from each Elder once a year. Elders may also tell you the location of up to 5 other Elders in nearby zones.

Coins of Ancestry can be turned in for several tailoring and engineering patterns, as well as other items. Each coin you receive also generates 75 faction reputation with either the Horde or Alliance. Not counting guild reputation increases, this would give a total of 6300 for most races and 6930 for humans if all 84 Coins of Ancestry are gathered. Furthermore, each Elder you visit will reward you with a  [Lucky Red Envelope] which contains a  [Lucky Rocket Cluster] or an  [Elder's Moonstone]. Using the Lucky Rocket Cluster gives you the [Lunar Fortune] buff (+250 health).

Through the Achievement system, players are rewarded for participating in the Lunar Festival. A total of 190 Achievement point achievement points are available from completing the festival-related achievements. Upon completing all of the Lunar Festival achievements, you will complete the world event achievement  To Honor One's Elders which gives the <Elder> title.
