Step Right Up! Try Your Luck!

A gathering of the exotic from around Azeroth (and beyond!), the Darkmoon Faire is a celebration of the wondrous and mysterious. This mist-shrouded island is a conundrum wrapped in an enigma, accessible at the beginning of each month for one week only. Don’t be shy now, don’t be bashful—step right up for a tantalizing glimpse of what Faire founder Silas Darkmoon has in store for you!New Attractions and Prizes!

The Darkmoon Faire returns this Sunday, April 7 with a brand-new roller coaster ride, new balloon-themed pets, and the latest haute couture fashion accessories: severed fish heads!


The Darkmoon Faire Roller Coaster is the longest, tallest, and fastest wooden roller coaster in Azeroth! Grip the edge of your seat as you get tossed around swerving through curves and taking terrifying plunges on this rickety track of twisting timber. There's no height requirement, so dwarves, gnomes, and goblins can ride without having to measure up.

Brave riders will be granted the WHEE! buff, which increases experience and reputation earned for one hour. The experience gain will lend itself to collecting Heritage Armor sets and for unlocking Allied Races, including the recently released Kul Tiran humans and Zandalari trolls.


Darkmoon Prize Tickets burning a hole in your pocket? For 90 tickets, Carl Goodup will sell you three new pets to commemorate your visit—the Horse Balloon Horse Balloon, Murloc Balloon Murloc Balloon, and Wolf Balloon Wolf Balloon. Just make sure to keep them away from pointy objects.


Darkmoon Island offers 360 degrees of seas full of interesting finds. Cast a line and maybe you’ll reel in a Severed Crimsonscale Head Severed Crimsonscale Head or Severed Azurefin Head Severed Azurefin Head. Wearing them is all the rage at the faire this season.


Starting on the first Sunday of each month, lasting one week.


Darkmoon Island, accessible from portals in Elwynn Forest (Alliance) and Mulgore (Horde). You can easily reach the portals located in Elwynn Forest and Mulgore by paying a Darkmoon Faire Mystic Mage (located in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, and Dalaran) to teleport you there.

Reward: 1 Darkmoon Pet Supplies

      You can never really have enough alts it seems and leveling them can be annoying for a lot of players. Redditor skybeuter pointed out a cheaper way to boost your alts to level 110, considering the regular char boost service costs around 53 Euro.
      What you do is set up a secondary Battle.net account under your main one and set it up as a trial account. You then then take advantage of the current 44% sale on the regular edition of Battle for Azeroth, which includes a character level boost and costs 25E.

      Since the two accounts are linked the level boost can be applied to your main account as well, saving you 28 Euro in the process! The sale ends on July 8th.

      Here comes the big entry point into the new patch as Azshara welcomes both the Alliance and Horde into her domain in an appropriately flashy manner.
      Only the Alliance version is available at the moment, but the differences should be minimal based on what's we've seen and we'll update the post once the Horde one is posted.
