The NEW Darkmoon Faire!

Blizzard released some new information about the upcoming patch 4.3. They are revamping the Darkmoon Faire! I’m excited about this, it really needed to be done. I haven’t really done anything there since vanilla, besides turning in Darkmoon Card Decks. If you haven’t read about it there’s a detailed summary over at MMO-Champion.

But here’s a quick and dirty summary:

  • It’s on Darkmoon Faire Island now. Teleports will be available at previous fair locations and capitol cities.
  • New non-combat pets: Fez wearing monkey, etc.
  • New crafting recipes.
  • Some older “replica” armor sets available for use in mogging.
  • Gurubashi Arena style arena.
  • Games: Whack-a-Gnoll, the Tonk Battle Royale, the Cannon, Ring Toss, the Shooting Gallery, and more!
  • Quests that give you crafting skill ups. Up to 5 points in a week.
  • Darkmoon Faire Guide: Shows you where to find Darkmoon Artifacts which you can turn in for prizes, rep, xp, etc. The book will also teleport you to the Island. (Sounds a little like archaeology, only more fun).
  • Daily quests (at least daily while the fair is up).
I’ll definitely be checking on this when the PTR for patch 4.3 becomes available.
