Recommended Posts

The faire is coming a little earlier than the rest of the part 2 phase 3 Classic content, showing up this Monday, February 10th, with NPCs and preparations starting on Friday, and Blizzard have given us an overview of what we can expect (and where). From the Darkmoon Decks, to the buffs and activities, it's a great addition to Classic.

A gathering of the exotic from around the world and beyond, the Darkmoon Faire is a celebration of the wondrous and mysterious found in Azeroth. While the Faire spends most of its time in parts unknown, Silas Darkmoon and his enigmatic employees do stop from time to time in Mulgore and Elwynn Forest. When the Faire is on its way, barkers will stop by Orgrimmar and Ironforge to announce its arrival.

Hear ye! Hear ye! The first Darkmoon Faire in WoW Classic begins set up Friday, February 7 in Mulgore, with barkers appearing in Ironforge and Orgrimmar to share the news. Festivities begin on Monday, February 10 and will be available to visitors for a week before shutting down until the following month.

Visitors will be able to access the Faire in alternating months either from Elwynn Forest or Mulgore and serves as a neutral location for both the Horde and Alliance. While there are no guards to stop you from traveling through the portal, those on PvP realms will need to exercise caution when entering into enemy territory to get to the Faire.  

When: February 10–February 16, Mulgore
            March 9–March 15, Elwynn Forest

Visitors will also be able to enjoy food, drink, and rare item vendors offering additional exotic goods.


Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets and Prizes

Completing games and quests for the Darkmoon Faire will generally reward you with Darkmoon Prize Tickets. Tickets can also be earned by offering trade goods to Chronos, Kerri Hicks, Rinling, or Yebb Neblegear.

Speak to Gelvas Grimegate to redeem Darkmoon Faire Tickets for various prizes, including some epic-quality pieces of gear. You’ll also be able to trade in Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets toward reputation.


Darkmoon Cards

Darkmoon Cards can now be collected from across Azeroth. Once a deck is completed, players can turn it in to Professor Thaddeus Paleo for an epic-quality Trinket.


Fortunes Told

Life is full of mystery and wonder; no two adventurer’s tales are alike. Seek out Azeroth-renowned fortune teller Sayge to discover your future. After answering two of Sayge’s questions, you will receive a powerful buff based on your responses.


Fun Faire Activities

The Humanoid Cannonball

The Blastenheimer 5000 Ultra Cannon launches Fairegoers through the air towards a target sitting in the waters near the boardwalk south of the fairground.

Damn, lost the coin toss. As alliance on a super Horde dominated server, I won't be getting the buffs for raiding until March for BWL. Might be able to get the blue dragon deck from TB because you can run up and hand it in not caring how many deaths though.

      Hardcore Self-Found Mode will launch on February 29 and here comes the official preview of the new mode.
      In the Self-Found Mode, players cannot trade, use the Auction House, or send and receive most mail.
      (Source)
      Survival is the name of the game in Classic Hardcore realms, and while you don’t always have to go it alone, you might just want to. You can take the leap into a new adventure in Classic Hardcore with Self-Found mode on February 29 beginning at 3:00 p.m. PDT (22:00 GMT) around the world.
      Players can choose to take on this new mode of play beginning at level 1 by selecting the option at character creation. While in this mode, players will be restricted from sending or receiving mail from other players, buying, or selling on the Auction House, or trading in any way (including giving or receiving items or enchantments.) While Self-Found mode is activated, you’ll see a new buff applied to your character. Characters with Self-Found mode on will also show a small icon in the character selection screen.
      Self-Found Adventurer
      Unable to trade, use the auction house, or send and receive most mail.
      To turn off this mode of play, Alliance players can visit an Apprentice Watcher in Ironforge (Hall of Explorers) or Darnassus (Moon Temple) and Horde players can visit an Apprentice Watcher in Orgrimmar (near the PvP vendors)  or in Undercity (The Apothecarium). Keep in mind that once you turn off Self-Found, you will not be able to turn it back on.
      It will all be up to you and your ability to explore, gather, and create everything you need to survive in Azeroth…all on your own.
      Getting Into Hardcore
      If you haven’t taken up the challenge yet, then don’t worry. We have everything you need to know to get started.
      If living life on the edge is for you, first, you'll need to do the following:
      Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date. Run the Battle.net desktop app—it may need to update itself if you haven't run it recently. First-time adventurers or those looking for a fresh start will need to create a new Battle.net account. Once Battle.net is installed and updated, select World of Warcraft from the list of games. Access to WoW Classic Hardcore is included and available to all players with an active World of Warcraft subscription—no additional purchase is required. You can subscribe by visiting the Battle.net Shop. In the Game Version drop-down menu above the Play button, choose the World of Warcraft Classic option, then click Install. Allow the installation to complete, click Play, and select from the available realms listed in the Hardcore tab. Create a new character. Enter the game and do your best to live.

      We're doing a hotfix combo today, as the Dragonflight part is pretty small and SoD has plenty of changes! Retail only brings two fixes, one for Rogues and one for Waycrest, while SoD has plenty of class changes, as well as quest XP buffs, PvP event improvements and more.
      February 21 (Source)
      Classes
      Rogue Outlaw Fixed an issue with Echoing Reprimand that allowed Slice and Dice to trigger effects like Ruthlessness and Restless Blades as if spending 7 combo points. Dungeons
      Waycrest Manor Fixed an issue where receiving Aura of Dread can interrupt a player's channel.  
      WoW Classic: Season of Discovery
      Elite and Dungeon Quests now grant additional bonus experience. The Dismantle enchant now procs more often for casters and melee. The vendor price of Ez-Thro Radiation Bombs and High-Yield Radiation Bomb has been reduced. Players in the Spirit World can now resurrect at Chained Spirits for up to 30 minutes after a Blood Moon ends. Spirit of Redemption Form will no longer instantly cancel if you attempt to cast spells not allowed in that form. Doing so now returns an error message. A Zandalarian Emissary can now be found atop the Durotar zeppelin tower. Mage Spell Power now benefits the critical strike damage of Spellfrost Bolt. Rogue Preparation now properly resets the cooldowns of Quick Draw, Between the Eyes, and Redirect. Shuriken Toss will no longer sometimes cause loss of combo points when a Rogue is talented into Seal Fate and a bounced Shuriken crits a secondary target. Shaman Offhand Stormstrike hits can now correctly trigger weapon procs, including Windfury Weapon and Flurry. Healing Rain no longer has a variant height for its animation. The Healing Rain cloud now always appears just above player's heads. Warlock Haunt will now properly increase the damage done by Siphon Life. Developers’ notes: Siphon Life behaves like Drain Life and will only be increased by Haunt if it is cast while Haunt is already active. These abilities do not dynamically update their values when Haunt is applied or falls off.

      A trinket from Gnomeregan has ported a player to somewhere they shouldn't be in Season of Discovery Phase 2...
      A Reddit user named SerrOleg recently shared an unusual experience with a Gnomeregan trinket known as "Aragriar's Whimsical World Warper." This unique item, dropped by Electrocutioner 6000, is designed to teleport players to random locations every four hours, thanks to its "Aragriar's Wild Ride" effect. 
      In some instances, you'll wind up somewhere you shouldn't be. In this specific scenario, the player got teleported to Northern Northshire and this is probably not an area where players should be, so they got affected with two spells/effects. The first one is called "TEST DEVELOPER DEBUG SPELL" and the tooltip says: "I don't think I'm supposed to be here..."
      However, adventures can sometimes take an unexpected turn. In a peculiar incident, SerrOleg found themselves teleported to Northern Northshire, a location presumably off-limits to players. Upon arrival, they were hit with two mysterious spells/effects. The first, "TEST DEVELOPER DEBUG SPELL," came with a tooltip message, "I don't think I'm supposed to be here...," hinting at the unintended nature of their visit.
      The second spell, named as "GM Freeze," is typically used by Game Masters to immobilize players in place, further indicating that this detour was far from ordinary.
      I recall this happening frequently during the Alpha/Beta PTR. Whenever you wandered into an area that hadn't been opened yet, you'd automatically get teleported back to your Hearthstone location after a short while. The trinket really brings a unique flavor to the Season of Discovery with its teleportation, don't you think?

      The class tuning has arrived and we have even more changes than initially announced, as well as buffs for Gnomeregan Salvage!
      February 20 (Source)
      WoW Classic: Season of Discovery
      Increased the number of crafting materials found in Boxes of Gnomeregan Salvage and slightly increased the drop rate of Grime-Encrusted Salvage throughout Gnomeregan. Druid Berserk now also increases the number of targets struck by Lacerate while it is active. Starsurge bonus damage to Starfire increased to 80% (was 66%). Corrected a bug causing this bonus damage to be lower than intended at level 40. Swipe now scales with attack power, gaining 10% of attack power as damage. Threat caused by Swipe greatly increased. Rip duration increased to 16 seconds (was 12 seconds). Hunter Raptor Strike damage when the Melee Specialist rune is active is now normalized weapon damage. Paladin Fixed an issue where Fiery Weapon enchantment and Seal of Martyrdom were triggering each other. Neither can be triggered by the other any longer. Fixed an issue where Fiery Blaze and Fiery Weapon enchantments could trigger or be triggered by Seal of Martyrdom. Those interactions do not happen anymore. Priest Mind Spike damage increased by 10%. Void Plague damage increased by 10%. Shadow Word: Death base damage before modifiers decreased by 40% and spellpower coefficient adusted to 42.9% (was 64.3%). Developers’ notes: Overall, this should result in a 33-40% damage reduction on Shadow Word: Death, depending on the amount of spellpower the priest has. Shadow Word: Death has been doing a larger percentage of overall priest damage than intended, and we feel like this could begin to put additional pressure on healers in PvE, as spellpower gear improves and the damage that priests inflict on themselves continues to scale upwards. It could also prove to be increasingly oppressive in PvP, as it’s an instant attack that can be used on the move, from range, with very little counterplay. Rogue Shuriken Toss bounce range reduced to 10 yards (was 15 yards). Developers’ notes: This should reduce the chance of it bouncing a little too far and pulling extra packs in dungeons. It now matches the range of other chain spells like Chain Lightning and Avenger’s Shield. Shaman Fixed an issue where Fire Nova did not benefit properly from Elemental Mastery. The Dual-Wield Specialization rune now provides 50% bonus damage to your offhand weapon swings. Lava Lash now gains 50% increased damage if Flametongue Weapon is imbued on your offhand. The proc chance of Maelstrom Weapon is now roughly 50% higher when your main hand weapon or your two-hand weapon is imbued with Windfury Weapon.

      Blizzard has acknowledged a bug related to the Gnomeregan raid lockout not resetting as it should after the weekly maintenance in Season of Discovery Phase 2. They're looking into the problem and will share more details shortly.
      (Source)
      Greetings,
      We are aware of an issue that caused some players who became saved to Gnomeregan between 7:00AM PST on Monday, Feb 19th and 7:00AM PST this morning (Tuesday Feb, 20th) to not properly have their raid lockout reset during today’s maintenance as expected.
      We are currently investigating this issue and hope to have more information very soon. We greatly appreciate your patience and we apologize for the inconvenience.
