WoW Classic Darkmoon Faire Now Live

11 Feb 826 views World of Warcraft Classic
The faire is coming a little earlier than the rest of the part 2 phase 3 Classic content, showing up this Monday, February 10th, with NPCs and preparations starting on Friday, and Blizzard have given us an overview of what we can expect (and where). From the Darkmoon Decks, to the buffs and activities, it's a great addition to Classic.

Darkmoon Faire was introduced in patch 1.6 (July 2005), with few changes made to it during the vanilla period. The Humanoid Cannonball game was added in patch 1.9 (January 2006) and Tank Battle Simulator was added in patch 1.10 (March 2006), but other than that, the Faire remained the same until after the launch of Burning Crusade.

In Burning Crusade, Patch 2.2 (September 2007), a third location was added near Shattrath City in Terrokar, and some +60 items were added to make it more useful to the new 60-70 bracket. During Wrath of the Lich King, patch 3.1 (April 2009), Darkmoon Faire achievements were added, including adding exalted Darkmoon Faire reputation to the requirements for “the Insane” title.

Cataclysm and patch 4.3 (November 2011) introduced most of the features of Darkmoon Faire that we take for granted in Retail, with the introduction of the separate Darkmoon Island. This includes most of the games, Darkmoon Card: Twisting Nether most items sold by vendors, the +5 profession quests, the arena, dailies, island mobs, and NPCs that teleport you directly to the Faire from capital cities. You will experience the vanilla version of Darkmoon Faire in WoW Classic, not the 4.3 content.

A gathering of the exotic from around the world and beyond, the Darkmoon Faire is a celebration of the wondrous and mysterious found in Azeroth. While the Faire spends most of its time in parts unknown, Silas Darkmoon and his enigmatic employees do stop from time to time in Mulgore and Elwynn Forest. When the Faire is on its way, barkers will stop by Orgrimmar and Ironforge to announce its arrival.

Hear ye! Hear ye! The first Darkmoon Faire in WoW Classic begins set up Friday, February 7 in Mulgore, with barkers appearing in Ironforge and Orgrimmar to share the news. Festivities begin on Monday, February 10 and will be available to visitors for a week before shutting down until the following month.

Visitors will be able to access the Faire in alternating months either from Elwynn Forest or Mulgore and serves as a neutral location for both the Horde and Alliance. While there are no guards to stop you from traveling through the portal, those on PvP realms will need to exercise caution when entering into enemy territory to get to the Faire.

When: February 10–February 16, Mulgore
March 9–March 15, Elwynn Forest

Visitors will also be able to enjoy food, drink, and rare item vendors offering additional exotic goods.

Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets and Prizes

Completing games and quests for the Darkmoon Faire will generally reward you with Darkmoon Prize Tickets. Tickets can also be earned by offering trade goods to Chronos, Kerri Hicks, Rinling, or Yebb Neblegear.

Speak to Gelvas Grimegate to redeem Darkmoon Faire Tickets for various prizes, including some epic-quality pieces of gear. You’ll also be able to trade in Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets toward reputation.

Darkmoon Cards

Darkmoon Cards can now be collected from across Azeroth. Once a deck is completed, players can turn it in to Professor Thaddeus Paleo for an epic-quality Trinket.

Darkmoon Cards now drop in both regions in WoW Classic, exactly as outlined by Blizzard in the Phase 3 unlock schedule. The festivities will be opening on February 10.

Darkmoon Faire – Coming Earlier in February

A gathering of the exotic from around the world and beyond, Silas Darkmoon has brought together the Darkmoon Faire as a celebration of the wondrous and mysterious found in Azeroth. While the Faire spends most of their time in parts unknown, they do stop from time to time in Mulgore and Elwynn Forest. When the faire is on its way barkers will stop by Orgrimmar and Ironforge to announce its arrival.

The first Darkmoon Faire in WoW Classic will get underway in early February, with barkers and the Faire setup appearing on Friday, February 7, and the festivities opening on Monday, February 10. Look for the many Darkmoon Cards that make up the beasts, elementals, portals, and warlords sets to begin dropping from enemies and bosses on Wednesday, February 5.

I have played WoW for about 12 years. I have seen many companies come and go, a lot of which seem a little shady. This is not one of those. Excellent service, very quick and easy to use. Extremely well spoken staff, ultra professional. I highly recommend this service. Originally posted from Trustpilot

In a game where leveling alternate characters is draining enough, getting the baseline gear to start getting groups sounded like a headache. The ShineBoost team took me through the content I wouldn't have been able to tackle for another month, after grinding. Because of them, I'm now self-sufficient and able to play the content I want to. The team was on-time and quick to get me back to playing the game. I would highly recommend them. Originally posted from Trustpilot

I have been playing WOW since Vanilla. I travel often for work, but when I am home I like to play in premades vs raid finder. I have used other services before, but this one has been super easy and professional to work with. Things start on time and they deliver what they promise. Will continue to work with.

Incredible Service! It's very rare I find a team that will work as diligently to make sure that everything runs smoothly. I have used their various services throughout Battle for Azeroth, and I am incredibly pleased. They do everything to make the customer happy and I've managed to get a large number of achievements with them. Everything is done in a timely manner and I have no regrets.

Very friendly staff and exceptional services. Very smooth raid run and fast leveling services. In additions, they do accept reasonable requests to tailor with one's needs and go from there. Strongly recommend to anyone that looking for a great boosting services. Will definitely reach out to them for more services in the future, i.e., PVP boosting. Originally posted from Ownedcore

100% the best I was hesitant to buy the service as I have never been the one to purchase a carry before, but I'm so glad I tried it out. Amazing support on discord, and the speed of the run was outstanding. Originally posted from Trustpilot

Cam Puertas

Great service. Found them in game and they offered a full heroic self play. I couldn't resist. Then i bought a mythic key run with the guaranteed timer. Got they key done and they were still generous enough to give me two pieces of 430 loot, an i got nothing personally might i add. This was also all in the same day within finding them. Who ever runs the discord is very generous and informative and is willing to answer any questions regardless of them having a FAQ on their website.They made the experience the first day a whole lot better for me, and that's why i will continue to spend my money with them.

Vouch for Shine Boost, They got me in for a raid within a few hours. The run went very smooth. I got the x3 Package and was not disappointed! I got more than I bargained for! It was a great experience all around! Originally posted from Ownedcore

I have had great experiences with several groups arranged by ShineBoost. They have been attentive to my needs and very accommodating. I recommend them for all needs PvE and PvP (great coaches.) Originally posted from Trustpilot

What an experience. From the outset, everything is easy. The intial contact and set up is straight forward and if you are not sure help is on the hand. What a run, as it say's on the tin spreings to mind. Friendly and proffesional. Top job ShineBoost... see you soon ;) Originally posted from Trustpilot

If your looking for any services....Look no further. ShineBoost has been my go to service for many tiers of content between raid boosts and m+'s they have basically anything you could want! Stop taking a risk and go with a sure thing. Originally posted from Trustpilot

After years of playing the game another rep grind is beyond painful however a must have for flying in the new expansions. The team was beyond helpful and completely flexible around my gaming times and work times. totally worth it, service and the experience is beyond simple and trustworthy. Couldn't recommend more especially over stupidly expensive alternatives. Originally posted from Trustpilot
