PostSubject: Did you know about the Darkmoon Faire ?   Thu 11 Jan 2007, 17:01

The Darkmoon Faire begins set up on the first Friday of each month, and continues for 3 days. On the early morning of Monday (4am server time), the Faire will begin and last for one week. It alternates between Goldshire in Elwynn Forest (A) and just outside Thunder Bluff in Mulgore (H) each month.

You can buy weird and wonderful things from the travelling vendors, such as the Darkmoon Ring, pickled Kodo Foot or the Darkmoon Special Reserve.

Faire Quests
Darkmoon Faire Sets
As you'd expect from these colourful characters they have a few tricks up their sleaves and will happily send you on some pretty involved quests.

There are four Darkmoon Faire Sets of cards scattered around Azeroth which you must collect. Each deck comprises eight cards - Ace to Eight. Once you have a deck you return it to Professor Thaddeus Paleo at the Faire for a reputation bonus and one of the following trinkets (of which you can carry 2 in trinket slots). Click the drop locations for maps of where each card is dropping.

Deck Drop locations Trinket Reward Effect of Trinket
Beasts Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon 2% chance on successful spellcast to allow 100% of your Mana regeneration to continue while casting for 15 sec.
Portals Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Darkmoon Card: Twisting Nether Gives the wearer a 10% chance of being able to resurrect with 20% health and mana.
Elementals Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Darkmoon Card: Maelstrom Chance to strike your melee target with lightning for 200 to 300 Nature damage.
Warlords Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Darkmoon Card: Heroism Sometimes heals bearer of 120 to 180 damage when damaging an enemy in melee.

The trinkets require clvl 60 to wear.
Once the cards have been combined to make a deck it can not be separated.
Decks have been known to go for 500+ gold on some servers and you can also sell individual cards of a deck in the Auction House.

Tip from regular faire patron DrunkCajun:

"Don't bother collecting them (the decks) unless you come across an Ace for cheap. They're the hardest to find, apparently, and certainly the most expensive. I bought the Ace of Beasts for 250g and sold the deck for 400g. Turned a profit, but a narrow one. The deck I really made a chunk of change on was the Portals deck--I picked up the Ace for 25g. The deck sold for 800.

Still, like I said, don't bother collecting the cards until you have an ace. The rest are easy enough to come by. Without that, you'll just have a lot of used up bag space."

Darkmoon Prize Tickets
There are also Faire quests to collect varying quantities of tickets that will net you tasty prizes once handed in such as this Amulet of Darkmoon. You have to be level 60 to wear it but still, with stats like that it's worth the effort collecting the tickets. Or there's this handy 14 slot storage box.

Visit Yebb Neblegear who will tell you which items you should be collecting. Once collected return to him to exchange them for Darkmoon Tickets. The table below shows you what you can redeem and in return for how many Darkmoon Prize Tickets and the linked names will show you maps of where the items dropped.

Small Furry Paws 5 1
Torn Bear Pelts 5 4

Once you have enough Darkmoon Prize Tickets you can hand them into Gelvas Grimegate to exchange for items.

Mini Game
There's been a distinct lack of mini-games at the faire until patch 1.8 it seems when a cannon game was introduced. Here it is explained by Havoc Jack:

"On the eastern end of the faire (in Elwynn at the moment) there's a cannon that's useable. When you use it, it shoots you out over the crystal lake where there's a target floating. The cannon gives you a slow falling debuff, and if you cancel it at the right time, you can hit the target. Now here's the point that will turn most of you off; THERE'S NO REWARD! I haven't been pointed to it by anybody, and nobody will reward you if you hit the sweet spot."
