Darkmoon Faire Incoming 04.10.2020

On the 4th October at 12:01 am (tonight) brings the return of the Darkmoon Faire. The Faire is a very profitable event which turns up on the first Sunday of each month. What makes this more worthwhile is that it’s the last one before the release of the Shadowlands pre-patch (13th October) and the incoming level and item level squish.

I won’t go into great detail of the ins and outs of the Darkmoon Faire today; however, if you do want that information, I’ll redirect you to this post which delves into it in more detail.

Today, my post is concerning the elixir that’s discontinued in the Shadowlands pre-patch called Elixir of the Rapid Mind. You may be fortunate to have some left in your inventory and given the 15-minute usage; you may be apprehensive at how best to use it. If this is you, please consider using the elixir before handing in all your Darkmoon Faire quest items and dailies. Upon using this elixir, it will grant you: Increased experience gain by 300% for 15 minutes.

I must remind you that there’s a maximum level restriction of level 99this will not work for players above level 99! Also, be sure to have heirlooms equipped and any other experience buffs (e.g. Carousel buff – whee!) active.

Darkmoon Faire quest items:

Monstrous Egg (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Fallen Adventurer’s Journal (5  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Banner of the Fallen (5  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Captured Insignia (5  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Imbued Crystal (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Mysterious Grimoire (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Ornate Weapon (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
Soothsayer’s Runes (15  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)
A Treatise on Strategy (10  Darkmoon Prize Ticket)

TSM Import String:

I know using the elixirs whilst completing objectives (e.g. within Draenor) return incredible amounts of experience. My example today is just a more straightforward method that will produce a fair amount of experience, without the added fuss of trying to complete as many objectives as possible within the 15 minutes.

If you don’t have any elixirs in your inventory and want to power level your characters, you may be fortunate to find some on the Auction House. I think if you can find them up to 10k, then it’s well worth the return. I’ve been fortunate to see a lot around the 6k mark. If you have some alts that you want to level quickly, then it’s worth considering this method.

If this method is of no interest to you, and you have elixirs at your disposal, consider placing them on the Auction House for the benefit of other players to use. You have until the pre-patch releases to use them or sell them, before they’re discontinued and turn in to a grey painful looking item. As of the date of this post, you have 10 days till pre-patch releases!

Using Gold for a Wow Token to Cover Costs of a Guild Transfer

Ive had the dilema for a while now, whether to transfer the remainder of my alts to my main server, as I wanted all my characters on one realm. The aim for this, is to have every profession at max level, a vast range of different classes at my disposal and more importantly they’ll all be together. Now, all these alts have Guild banks already, so Ive taken the choice to do Guild Transfers. As you’ll know, this will set me back £25 per transfer, so I need to make sure, that if I want to cover these costs, I need to make as much gold as possible, so that I can recoup that £25 back via wow tokens, for future subscriptions to the game.

So with that said, I looked on The Undermine Journal and to see what is of high value and see if I can buy those items a lot cheaper on the realm I’m looking to leave. You may have noticed today (04/03/16) via Twitter, that Ive sold a large amount of  Champion’s Honor. I have been selling these for approximately 18-25k each! I bought these for 10k on the realm I left. I managed to buy 60 of them, so for a 600k investment, I can see a return of 1.08m minimum and up to 1.5m maximum. With the price at 74k for a wow token, this will earn me a minimum of £59. So Ive easilly covered my expenses in the long run!

Champions Honor sales

I have 25 left on the auction house as of writing this post and these will likely sell before the end of the weekend, as a higher volume of players are able to play. I’ve been fortunate, not to limit myself just to  Champion’s Honor tokens though, Ive also invested in cheap  Medallion of the Legion,  Frozen Arms of a Hero tokens and  Elixir of the Rapid Mind. These all sell extremely well on my main server, as people look to power level alts, earn their flying or max out their Garrisons before the nerf bat swings ready for Legion.

The morale of all this is, look at all the opportunities available to you, see what markets you can manipulate, especially with items transfered from one realm to another and at the end, this will make it viable to pay for your Guild or Character transfer, via a WoW Token.

Thanks for reading… good luck!
