The Darkmoon Faire:
This Saturday, 4th June at midnight, sees the return of the Darkmoon Faire to Azeroth. The Darkmoon Faire has some excellent opportunities to get involved with if you enjoy gold-making. Darkmoon Artifacts, Replica Transmog, Darkmoon Companions, Fishing, and farming Darkmoon Rares are a few of the things on offer to you. But, remember, The Darkmoon Faire is only in town for a week, so make good use of your time!
Darkmoon Artifacts are an essential commodity. These are quest starters that reward Darkmoon Prize Tickets and experience (or gold if you’re at max level). You can turn these Artifacts in once per Darkmoon Faire per character – so don’t forget those alts!
Mid-way throughout the month, when the Darkmoon Faire is out of town, these are posted very cheaply on the Auction House. So this is a great time to purchase these and store them ready for the Faire’s return. If you can’t turn anymore in, consider flipping them on the Auction House for other players.
Check out my blog post on Darkmoon Artifacts here.
The Replica Transmog market is something I post about frequently. These pieces can demand a high price on the Auction House. To purchase these items, you’ll need to acquire Darkmoon Prize Tickets. The easiest method to obtain these is by handing in Darkmoon Artifacts, which I’ve mentioned above.
Remember, Replica pieces have a level requirement you must meet to successfully purchase them from the vendor.
Don’t forget to complete the daily quests at stools scattered on the Island. Completing one of these rewards one Darkmoon Prize Ticket, but you can complete these once per day.
Here’s my blog post regarding Replica Transmog.
Darkmoon Companion Pets:
If Replica Transmog isn’t of interest to you, then maybe some of the companion pets are. These will set you back 90 Darkmoon Prize Tickets each and, if leveled to 25, can earn you approximately 10-15k each on the Auction House, realm dependant. Check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for prices on your realm!
Unsure what Companion Pets to buy, check my blog post here.
Sila’s Secret Stash:
One of the best ways to obtain Darkmoon Tickets is completing the quest Silas’ Secret Stash. This quest can only be completed once on any one character. Check out my post below for more information regarding Silas’ Secret Stash.
Fishing (Darkmoon Daggermaw):
Darkmoon Daggermaw is a fish you can catch along the shores of Darkmoon Isle. You’ll need to be on the lookout for Shipwreck Debris. You have a chance to successfully cast between 1-2 times, catching a Sealed Darkmoon Crate each time. Simply open the crate to loot Darkmoon Daggermaw and other potentially useful items.
I have success in selling Darkmoon Daggermaw between 25-50g each, depending on the realm. These are useful for the one-time quest Silas’ Secret Stash, a commodity for purchasing items from the vendor Galissa Sundew and a reagent for cooking. Check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) to see where the best value is for your Darkmoon Daggermaw.

Farming Darkmoon Rares:
There are two rares on Darkmoon Isle, the Darkmoon Rabbit, and Moonfang. They both drop a companion pet, a Darkmoon Rabbit and a Moon Moon, respectively.
The Darkmoon Rabbit is worth between 25-30k, but if learned and leveled to 25, you could demand upwards of 40-50k. Moon Moon is worth approximately 15k, but if you learn it and level it to 25, you could demand about 30-35k.
Always check The Undermine Journal (TUJ) for a comprehensive valuation for your item on your realm!
Don’t Neglect Your Professions:
The Darkmoon Faire also has profession quests. Although these have a blue quest marker, these are not dailies; instead, these can only be completed once per Darkmoon Faire visit. However, it would be best not to ignore these because they give you five skill points towards your profession.
These quests are ideal if you’re five points away from maxing your profession!
In Other News:
This week, I also completed my BoE Recipe groups. This project took me over seven days to complete and has information on every BoE recipe you can buy and sell on the Auction House. If you’ve ever considered getting involved within the BoE Recipe market, then check out my blog post here. It covers every profession and vendor BoE recipe.
I have created TSM groups that may be of interest to you, these do not have operations, and you can make changes however you wish. Be sure to backup your TSM Profile before importing.
