The Darkmoon Faire is a source of great opportunity, especially for alts. If you have one, or are thinking of making another, please do during this wonderful time. Let’s talk about all the opportunities.
Buff to XP: For a few coins, you can purchase tickets to ride the Darkmoon Merry-go-round, which grants you up to 60 minutes of increased Experience and Reputation. The increase is only 10% but it’s better than nothing.
Free tickets: Once you get a character to level 6 you get a quest to go to the faire. It rewards you with 5 free Darkmoon Prize Tickets, which is the currency to purchase all kinds of items. You can use these to purchase a 16 slot bag which you can only equip 1 of. You can sell them for gold at 2g 50s per bag. You aren’t going to get rich, but this is especially good if you are on a new server, a new player, or on a trial account.
Profession quests: Profession quests allow you to get up to 5 profession points per quest, experience, and a few coins in your pocket. You can only do each profession quest once during the faire and need to have a minimum of 75 skill points in that profession. It’s a great place to level fishing because it goes fast and there is a trainer there who can train you once you hit skill level 50!
Heirlooms: If you are into alts, you should know that you can purchase a bunch of heirlooms at the darkmoon faire from the above pictured vendor. That’s where I got the bulk of my heirlooms from. Typically, I went chest > shoulders > weapon, but you can do it whichever way you see fit!
Pets and Mounts: There are 7 pets and 2 mounts you can purchase. In addition to that, there is the Darkmoon Glowfly which patrols the island. Be mindful of the level 100 mobs that roam just outside the sanctuary of the Faire!
Games: The games are where you earn the bulk of your Darkmoon Faire tickets to purchase things. So be sure to do those daily, while the Faire is “in-town”. They added a couple more games since Warlords has launched. Lots of fun and some achievements too!
Check out the Faire while it is still “in-town”. Usually hits the first Sunday of every month and runs through Saturday!
