    Patch 4.3 - The New Darkmoon Faire is on Test Realms!

    Update - El's Extreme Anglin' is reporting a Sea Pony Companion Pet from fishing in the Darkmoon Island waters.



    Patch 4.3 - The New Darkmoon Faire is on Test Realms!
    It's the first week-end of the month and it means the new Darkmoon Faire is finally available for testing! The new faire is much much bigger than the old one and now has its own dedicated zone, you can enter it through the portals located in the old locations of the Darkmoon Faire (Goldshire, Thunder Bluff, etc ...)


    Upon entering the faire, you will be able to buy a Pouch o' Tokens or a Sack o' Tokens for a reasonable price, these tokens are used to play all the games of the Darkmoon Faire.


    More activities are now offered and on the test realms you can currently try:


    • A target shooting game where you have to score 25 points in 60 seconds.
    • The "Tonk Commander" game, where you have to shoot 30 targets with your Tonk in a set amount of time.
    • A ring tossing game, the goal is to toss rings on the turtle in the playing area.
    • The Darkmoon Cannon is still here, and will require you to trigger a skill while you fly to land and hit a target on the ground/water.
    • The new "Whack-a-gnoll" mini-game will let you test your reflexes and ... well, whack gnolls.
    • The Darkmoon Deathmatch Arena, the name pretty much says it all. Any player entering the Arena will be flagged for PvP and able to fight any other players already there.
    • Profession quests, rewarding you with tickets and a +5 bonus to your profession skill.
    • Last but not least, L90ETC gives a concert every hour!

    You can also just walk around the faire and spend your money to buy fireworks or even a balloon from the Balloon Vendor. The faire even has its own zoo with a nice sample of creatures from all over Azeroth on display!

    These games will reward you with Darkmoon Prize Ticket and after collecting enough of them, you will be able to buy rewards from the Darkmoon Faire vendors.


    Rewards - Tier 0/Dungeon Set Armor Replica
    The very first class armor sets from the old level 60 5-man dungeons are back in the game, or at least replicas of them are back and you can buy them for Transmogrification purposes! The items do not have any stats (Replica Deathmist Robe) and are only here to let you get that look when you transmogrify your gear.

    I could let most of you roam the internet to figure out how your armor set looks but I'm much nicer than that, here's a compilation! (Warlock Deathmist helm currently bugged)





    Rewards - Mounts
    Two mounts are available for 180 x Darkmoon Prize Ticket, the Darkmoon Dancing Bear and the Swift Forest Strider.





    Rewards - Companion Pets
    6 new companion pets are available from the Darkmoon Faire! You can buy them for 90 x Darkmoon Prize Ticket each.



    Rewards - Miscellaneous
    You can also collect miscellaneous items from the Darkmoon Faire, such as the Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Darkmoon "Sword", or the Darkmoon Hammer!



    Rewards - Heirlooms
    You can also exchange your tickets for Heirlooms.

    For anyone wondering, I just did all the quests on the PTR, they still give 250 rep each, even with revered DMF rep.

    And it's a blast, a bit crowded atm tbh. Heck the arena doesn't have a sandy floor it's just skeletons all over the floor .

    i hope they wont add so dailys give darkmoon rep, cause i just got my insane achievment and that would nerf it so badly.

    Woo, the old sets have returned, in all their low-res glory! Wish they'd update them with high-res textures.

  11. #11
    Ahh sweet. The Darkmoon bear looks really cool and the arena area is going to be a lot of fun..Excited!

    I'm wondering... What will the monk class get?

    The DK starting set will be in the DK starting area like the said a month or so ago.

    I hope they don't bring T3 back as skins. Let the people that earned it when it was out have it, and if you want something that looks like it go run Nax 25 for T7.
