Darkmoon Faire Profession Dailies Exploit

I finally got to access the Darkmoon Faire late tonight, after a lot of internet issues over the past couple of days and to my surprise, there’s been a further addition to the changes to level requirements. This time to Profession dailies.

Minimum Levels Required:

Character level 1*
Profession Skill level 1
*Actual character level needed: Level 5 (Profession Trainer requirement)


What’s Changed?

As you’ll remember, the Darkmoon Faire profession dailies, required that you had a minimum skill level of 75, before you could access the Profession daily. Now the changes mean, that all you need is the Profession at level 1 to get started. This is great for level 5 characters and above.

Example: Below of the Tailoring Daily on my fresh level 10 Highmountain Tauren. With Tailoring skill at 1/300 and being offered the daily quest.


What Does this Mean?

Well, as I’ve just checked, you could learn 2 professions, (for example Mining and Herbalism) go to the Darkmoon Faire, complete the two profession dailies. Now head back to a city of your faction, simply unlearn them and learn two new professions. head back to the Darkmoon Faire and complete the dailies for those and rinse and repeat until you’ve completed them all!

Due to the actual level restriction of level 5 to learn a profession from your Profession trainer, this would work best with an Allied Race character, as they start at level 10.


Is this an exploit?

I’d imagine that this would be regarded as an exploit, as I don’t believe the developers wanted players swapping professions in and out, to complete every profession daily. So if you consider doing this, or have already done it, be prepared for a hotfix and if they deem it an exploit, they could possibly hand-out punishments too. I’d recommend not doing this!


Conclusion:

Be aware, that players doing this already will have earn’t a lot of extra Darkmoon Prize Tickets, which will have a negative affect on the quantity of Replica Transmog and Companion Pets on your realms Auction House. I’ve only been in-game for approximately 45 minutes, so it’s too soon to say.


What do you think? should Blizzard hotfix this? is it an exploit? add your comments below.
