Darkmoon Faire (Archive)

The Darkmoon Faire

The Darkmoon Faire:

The Darkmoon Faire is a World Event that visits Azeroth on the first Sunday of each month. Horde players can find the Darkmoon Faire entrance in Mulgore, and Alliance players can find the Darkmoon Faire entrance in Elwynn Forrest.

Alternatively, speak to a Mystic Mage (standing beside a Darkmoon Banner) within one of your faction’s cities and be teleported to the entrance for a minimal fee, depending on your level.

Remember, this event will only last for one week, then will depart.

What Can I Do?

There is plenty to do while the Darkmoon Faire is in town. If you’re a gold-maker like me, you’ll be interested in this post and the accompanying guides aimed explicitly at gold-making. I’ve added topics and links to individual guides to help keep this post as concise as possible.

Darkmoon Artifacts: 

There are nine Darkmoon Artifacts available. These can be obtained from killing players or bosses from PvP, Dungeons, or Raids. You must have a Darkmoon Adventurers Guide within your inventory to loot these Artifacts.

Alternatively, you can purchase the Artifacts from the Auction House. Be aware these Artifacts increase in value during the event. It’s best to purchase these when the Darkmoon Faire is out of town!

Once finished, these quests will reward Darkmoon Prize Tickets.

Check out my Darkmoon Artifacts Guide below.

Silas’ Secret Stash:

This is a quest that you can only complete once per character. But it rewards you with 100 Darkmoon Prize Tickets. If you’re like me, and purchase a lot of Replica Transmog or Companion Pets with the tickets, then you must complete this quest on all your characters!

Check out my guide below.

Profession Quests (Dragonflight):

With the release of Dragonflight and the Profession System Revamp, be aware of the new changes to the rewards for completing the Profession Quests within the Darkmoon Faire.

If you’re completing these quests with Dragonflight Professions, you will earn the following:

If you’ve reached maximum skill points with your respected Dragonflight Profession, you will earn skill points towards the previous expansion if you’ve not maximized them. Here’s an image of the rewards available for completing the Leatherworking profession quest.

Scattered around Darkmoon Isle are many mini-games. They all reward a Darkmoon Prize Ticket upon completion. The mini-games can be completed once per day, so be sure to return the following day! 

When you’ve earned enough Darkmoon Prize Tickets, you can use them to purchase Mounts, Transmog, Replica Transmog, or Companion Pets.

Darkmoon Rares: 

There two rares on Darkmoon Island. The Darkmoon Rabbit and Moonfang. They most notably drop a Companion Pet each, but the drop rate is extremely low. I hope you’re a lot luckier than me!

Check out my Companion Pets Guide for more information about the rares.

Darkmoon Daggermaw: 

If Fishing is your forté, what better time to cast out that fishing line and reel in some Darkmoon Daggermaw? These are a currency used to purchase MountsPets, and Recipes from the vendor, Galissa Sundew

Furthermore, they are also a valuable commodity for six Cooking Recipes. Check out my Darkmoon Daggermaw Guide for more info.

These items are great for flipping on the Auction House, as they’re often undervalued!

Replica Transmog: 

I’ve mentioned Replica Transmog a lot within my gold-making blog and social media platforms because the profit I’ve made is incredible. There have been several changes recently that have made this market very appealing. More importantly, these items are now cosmetic.

Thankfully, the level restrictions were loosened by Blizzard; more players will have access to this market. I’ve made sales of between 40k-75k per piece. In some realms, I have even recorded some sales at 100k; this is because of supply and demand.

Check out my Replica Transmog Guide for more info.

Companion Pets:

If you’re below level 22 and cannot purchase any Replica Transmog, I’d suggest spending your Darkmoon Prize Tickets on Companion Pets. The pets aren’t as valuable as the Transmog, but it’s the next best thing.

Alternatively, the Darkmoon Hammer is an option, but due to the vast interest in this market, I believe it to be worthless. Check out my blog post: The Darkmoon Hammer Market, for my reasoning.

Please read my Companion Pets Guide for more info.

Darkmoon Faire Pet Battles:

Also, during the week, we have the ability to pit our wits against the Pet Tamers, Jeremy Feasel, and Christoph VonFeasel. These Pet Battles can be straightforward to complete.

Once they’re defeated (and if you’re lucky), we can obtain some nice Battle Pets.

Upon defeating Jeremy Feasel, we get Darkmoon Pet Supplies, which can contain a Darkmoon Eye. Once we defeat Christoph VonFeasel, we obtain the Greater Darkmoon Pet Supplies, which can contain Syd the Squid. These can be sold at the Auction House!

Darkmoon Prize Tickets:

As I’m sure you’re aware by now, the Darkmoon Prize Tickets are the currency of value. The tickets are needed to purchase Replica Transmog and Companion Pets.

The more tasks and activities you do within the Darkmoon Faire, the greater the amount of Darkmoon Prize Tickets you’ll have to spend

Darkmoon Firewater:

Darkmoon Firewater is a potion that gives the user a buff that allows faster gathering of resources and slightly increases their size for one hour. This is an excellent item if you’re a gatherer (HerbalismMining, and Skinning). 

These items are great for flipping on the Auction House, as they’re often undervalued!
