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!

WoWScrnShot_110819_105240.jpg

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.

WoWScrnShot_110819_110425.jpg

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. 

WoWScrnShot_110819_112053.jpg

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.

WoWScrnShot_110819_112844.jpg

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

      The Dragon Isles truly are dangerous as it seems we're on the precipice of another Corrupted Blood incident! Many players are reporting a spreading disease, a little different and less deadly this time, but seemingly no less contagious!
      This time around we have a more psychological plague to deal with, as Contagious Cowardice is affecting NPCs and players alike! Many rare elites on the Dragon Isles use the debuff, and it seems something went wrong with limiting it, much the same was as the original Corrupted Blood incident years ago.
      This one is very different from the original, however, as the damaging part of the debuff doesn't seem to be working in sanctuaries like cities, so we most likely won't be seeing the seas of corpses we did back in the original plague. There is a new damaging effect this time though, and it's for your ears - as the debuff has a distinct and unpleasant sound, which gets amplified as more and more players around you have it.
      Plenty of players have been reporting the situation, and it seems mostly contained to Valdrakken at the moment, so it hasn't spread through portals... yet (and hopefully it can't), but some players have been spreading it around outside as well.
      It only doesn't do damage if you are within a sanctuary. Once you leave town with it the damage starts. With some guild assistance we managed to drag it to a few areas where crowds gather such as the Community Feast (though this is a sanctuary, it's fun seeing the mass circles) and to people waiting for the Siege of Dragonbane Keep. - Daevii
      ...
      Contagious Cowardice is a debuff applied by some rares around the Dragon Isles. It spreads from player to player, just like Corrupted Blood did all those years ago. Fortunately, Blizzard seemed to have learned from last time and it's not doing any damage if you're in a sanctuary - but it is jumping between people and spreading, and when it does so, it makes a huge noise! It gets pretty deafening somewhere full of afk people, like say, the auction house... : ( - Eschamali
       
      And here's a refresher on the original Corrupted Blood incident:

      So let's see just how far this particular plague gets and just how cowardly players can be!

      Update: the mystery has been solved! The mount and pet are actually a part of the new Race to World First Twitch drop program (which you can read more about here), and it seems there was a problem with the drops being awarded ahead of time for some players.
      ___________________________________________________
      Original story:
      Well here's a nice little surprise for players, as there are many reporting receiving a store mount they not only did not buy, but one that hasn't been available for years!
      A Mists of Pandaria mount, the Swift Windsteed was retired from the Blizzard store back in January 2019, and today a number of players have reported just receiving it in their mount collection as a gift box, despite never having bought it (even while it was available) - and yes, it is a flying mount.
      No idea. I got the mount too - KyleEverett
      ...
      Same. Freaked me out a little bit. - Cruelsader
      ...
      This happened to me too! Not the cenarion hatchling though, just the swift windsteed - treebalm
      ...
      I just got one too. Asked my spouse to check hers and she did not get one. I don’t mind the free mount but what is going on? - Kikjin This following player also received a Cenarion Hatchling in addition to the mount, on a different character, but they are the only one that reported getting two things.
      The official forums are also full of players reporting receiving the mount, as you can see in this thread:
      Just got a free Swift Windsteed?

      So, maybe check your mount journal if you were one of the lucky ones randomly receiving an old store mount and let us know!
