This dress is a rare reward from the valentines day quests. Several dresses were part of the rewards, but the black is the rarest. Due to the rarity and the fact that it does not bind and can be shared amongst characters (or friends) the price for one can be substantial.
Normal lovely dresses (blue, red, and purple) come from a V-day quest chain that starts in Stormwind.
The Lovely Black Dress is a rare random drop from the gifts of adoration that come from wooing the guards.
Do these come from only Gifts of Adoration? Or can they come from the Gifts of Friendship as well?
I looks absolutely DIVINE on my male orc hunter...
First thing to drop for me today :D
I wanted this quite badly last year and set forth to purchase one until I heard the asking price was 200g. I set up an army of alts in anticipation of this year and have it down to a 12 hour cycle (the debuff may wear off sooner when logged off, but 12 hours is safe and easy to work around when dealing with work and sleep).
I have 2 now after 30 or 40 of the adoration gifts and I'm not sure if it's just dumb luck or if the rate isn't quite as bad as some would have you believe. Regardless, I'm happy to have it and even though I have 2 and could make an easy couple hundred off selling the extra, I really have no inclination to do so. I *love* this dress ;)
Ok, the LBD, as we call it, has certainly been a rare fish. i didn't realize how lucky I was last year, when all but 1 of my female characters Hordeside would up with one.
This year, I wanted one for my Alliance Druidess - as my 1st chara, and my main, on an RP server - she's earned it, i think.
Research now, from here, Allak, etc., lets me know I was VERY lucky to have snagged 2 dresses last year, getting them from only 'normal' running around.
Alliance side, the best known rate came from the Alliance Brigadier General - A NPC THAT NO LONGER EXISTS IN GAME. Forget trying him - he's gone.
I've now started trying the other sources listed, as well as some highly speculative guesses about who DOES have it, based upon what I've observed in the last couple of years.
After the event has finished, I'll let you know how i fared. I'd like to get 1 for Darq here, but she is eligible for the quest reward Lovely Dress. IF YOU ARE 60+ YOU'RE BETTER OFF DOING THE QUEST!
If i do wind up with any 'extra' dresses, I'll post in my server thread, and let the best stories get them as prizes (as fitting for an RP server).
Oh! Almost forgot to mention - Hordeside, i snagged up 2 more LBDes already, now having 1 for each of my Horde females. Currently, on our server AHs, they are going for 20-70g Hordeside, 100g+ Alliance, and I didn't get a chance to check the neutral AHs to see.
You do not have to be level 60+ to do the quest for the lovely (blue, red, purple) dress. I did it this year at level 10. I'm not sure what the minimum level is.
Ok some people still seem confused about how easy it is get this. You don�t need to worry about cooldowns...
This is how I farmed it:
Alliance solution only, sorry :(
I have 2 accounts so its slightly easier than if you have only 1, but it can still be done and I will explain how to do it with one account also.
Create a new character (human), run them from Northshire Abbey to Stormwind. This new character needs 1silver and 10 copper to be able to do the quest and receive a pledge package.
You can achieve this in a number of ways. I sat a character from my other account in sw and just passed the money each time. With one account you could do it with mail (sending cash is instant).
Your new character needs to buy the following from the inn keeper:
Perfume = 1silver
Cards = 10 copper (for stack of 10)
Go outside the inn and speak to the guy standing near the fountain in front of the Stormwind bank. Get the quest from him. Apply perfume to yourself (right click it in your bag).
Now go find a male guard with a heart above his head. Right click the guard and hand in the quest.
You get a Pledge Reward (this is what can contain the lovely black dress).
Open the reward package and if you got the dress, great you are done.
Else, logout, delete the new character, create it again (same name is fine), then do the whole thing over again.
As I said above took me less than 5mins to create and complete the quest, and about 20 goes to get the dress.
NB: You can also get the lovely black dress from Gift Packages: These are the packages you get at the very end of the quest chain to collect items from all the guards. It would take you ages just to run one character through that whole quest, so just forget about those and concentrate on these.
Actually it's not.
Got one to sell on Auchidoun, Horde. PST to Skwisgar. I'll put it on the neutral AH if any of you Alliance are interested.

This is only available during the Valentines day celebration. It is not a quest reward either. You get it in gift packs that are given to you by the gaurds and people of stormwind or undercity.

Is it from the end quest or is it just from giving people the love tokens for the other quest pieces? There are two types of rewards. Pledge of Adoration and Gift of Adoration. I believe the Gift one is something you only recieve on your first Love Token use?.
