Darkmoon Faire

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 dependant on your level.

Remember, this event only lasts 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 will need to have a Darkmoon Adventurers Guide within your inventory to loot these Artifacts.

Alternatively, you can purchase the Artifacts from the Auction House. Be warned, 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, Companion Pets, with the tickets, then it’s imperative you complete this quest on all your characters!

Check out my guide below.

Profession Quests: 

As of 01.11.2020, there is no longer a required skill level to complete Profession Quests within the Darkmoon Faire. All profession quests used to require a minimum requirement of level 75 in that profession; this is no longer necessary. 

Completing these quests will reward 5 points to your profession and a Darkmoon Prize TicketThese profession quests are excellent if you’re 5 points away from maxing your profession

Reminder, be sure to collect any materials you need before you venture to Darkmoon Island; no vendors sell the materials you’ll need.


Mini-games: 

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

They are also a valuable material 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. On 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.

Please read my Companion Pets Guide for more info.

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!
