Recommended Posts

The Mechafun Arcade has been added to the Darkmoon Faire in Visions of N'Zoth, allowing you to play some of your favorite mini-games for the duration of the event.

How to Get There

On your way to the Cauldron of Rock, take the first turn right. The Mechaful Arcade can be found just behind the Darkmoon Faire roller coaster.

Unlock the Darkmoon Arcade Console for the day (requires 1 Darkmoon Game Token Darkmoon Game Token).

Then, you can choose between one of six mini-games. All games will place a buff on you. Right-click it to stop playing a game.

Hexsweeper

The game is a throwback to the popular Minesweeper video game.

This mysterious arcane console lights up under the touch of your hand. Page after page of instructions flitter across the central panel. The language is unclear, but the iconography is self-apparent: Lots of skulls.

This is HexSweeper, a most dangerous game wherein one must traverse an arcane minefield and identify all of the booby-trapped areas. Instant death rewards the slightest misstep.

You wonder why anyone would want to do this for fun.

Rules

You do your best to interpret the pictographs and ignore the persistent warnings about instantaneous death. The HexSweeper console will generate a hexagonal grid, sensitive to one's footsteps. Several of the hexagons are "mined" and will obliterate the player. Alternatively, stepping on a "safe" tile will reveal the count of adjacent mines. The object is to "clear" the field by revealing all of the safe tiles and by marking all of the dangerous ones with the little white flags provided. It's unclear why the game feels it necessary to murder players who step on the wrong tile. Multiple levels are available.

Click a tile once to place the flag or twice when you're not 100% sure there's a mine (a gray question mark "?" will appear above the selected field).

If you step on the wrong tile, you will die (Stepped on a Mine Stepped on a Mine) revealing all the mines.

Rune Matching

Rules

The rules are simple! Match 3 or more runes for points. More than 3 and you get bonus points! If you manage to get 100,000 points, you unlock an additional level of difficulty. If this is set up correctly...

The following difficulties are available:

The game can be reset anytime by clicking on the cube and you win when you earn 100,000 points.

BULL-E (throwback to WALL-E)

Rules

The idea is simple. The game is hard! Uncross the wires to fix poor BULL-E's circuits. There is only one difficulty level: Pretty easy to insane-o hard! Give up and you have to start from the beginning!

The game gets increasingly difficulty depending on the number of wires you uncross.

Barrels o' Fun

Rules

Keep your eye on the barrel! One barrel will flash at the start of each round. Remember which one it is, and pick it when they're all done moving around.

Click on Start a Round Start a Round and remember which barrel flashed at the beginning of a round to move to the next round.

The number of barrels and their speed will increase with rounds.

Remembery (also known as Shell Game, a Tortollan Seekers World Quest in BfA)

Rules

Flip the shells. Remember where they are, and match the pairs.

Only one difficulty of Remembery is available.

Totemic Matrix

To develop harmony with the elements, one must study and understand the interactions between them. The totem matrix is an ancient training method, a puzzle that will challenge one's mind and spirit.

The object of the exercise is to water totems. Simply touch a totem to invoke it. Know that all things are connected, a lesson invaluable in this puzzle... as in life!

Rules

You will be presented with a five-by-five matrix of elemental totems. Some are fire, some water. Your objective is to change them all to water totems. Simply touch a totem to flip its elemental alignment. Ah, but the elements are connected to one another! Flipping a totem will also change the four totems adjacent to it. Through patience, trial, and error, you should be able to coax all of the totems into water totems. You can reset the puzzle if you fond yourself completely lost.

The goal is to transform all fire into water totems. Multiple stages are available.

      This week's second 9.1.5 build is a Release Candidate, and with it, Blizzard banned another type of "borrowed power" spells from the Timewalking Mage Tower.
      In Build #40738, Blizzard restricted the use of Soulbind Powers in the Timewalking Mage Tower. For clarity, we're posting a list of all banned spells and gear below:
      Runecarving (Legendary) Powers; Shards of Domination procs; Covenant Signature and Class Abilities; Soulbind Powers and Conduit procs; Other item procs from previous expansions, like Spellbound Runic Band of Unrelenting Slaughter [10-15% Primary stat increase] from Warlords, and Wrathion's sockets from MoP (Capacitive Primal Diamond, Courageous Primal Diamond, Indomitable Primal Diamond, Sinister Primal Diamond). Legion Legendaries obviously won’t work because they were disabled in BfA.  The Heart of Azeroth and Azerite Powers won’t work.

      With the many new cosmetic options coming to Allied Races in 9.1.5, Luoren felt inspired to add even more for Void Elves, creating some very impressive fan-made looks for both male and female characters! Today we have some new male hairstyles as well as beard options, with added void tentacle.

      Source.
      And then there's the female options from a while ago, which also come with a version without the tentacle.
      You can find more of Luoren's work over on twitter, and if you were looking for the male options without the tentacle, they should be coming soon!

      Reddit user diozy created a minimalistic map of Azeroth.
      In the past, we covered various fan creations including a proportional map of Azeroth, Azeroth as a kids' playground, Azeroth's map created using Inkarnate, and more. Here's yet another different take on the map of Azeroth.
