News Filter: Blizzard To Launch Darkmoon Faire 2.0

  • Via MMO-Champion, Blizzard posted a preview on their blog stating that Darkmoon Faire is being updated with Patch 4.3. Originally launched with Patch 1.6, the Faire has received some small updates over time, but hasn't received the attention is deserves until now.

  • With Patch 4.3, Darkmoon Faire will have its own island with new games, quests, and shows. And there will be new rewards which I'm just going to quote here:
    We have adorable companion pets includin’ a fez-wearing monkey, a plethora of profession recipes, toys, balloons, souvenirs, delectable carnival snacks and beverages, heirlooms for the little ones, and even replicas of long-lost suits of armor that we’re offering for your Transmogrification needs.

  • Did you see that, MMO Gamer Chick? Fez-wearing monkey. You know that you'll have to resubscribe now. As will I, I suppose.

  1. FFS...I thought I had gotten over my WoW pet obsession, when I stopped playing and stopped following up on the latest vanity pet additions. But damn, a fez wearing monkey is tempting. If you resub, maybe I will too...I also still have that 7 day free offer which I think expires soon.

  2. Pets are GC's kryptonite. They made her do dailies in Rift too.

  3. I have to admit I never made it very far with darkmoon fair activities. If there had been an island I could go to that didn't move around, I might have been more inclined.

  4. Nice. The Darkmoon Faire is something I've dabbled in a bit but mostly I just ignored it. That might be because I play primarily on a PvP server.

  5. "and even replicas of long-lost suits of armor that we’re offering for your Transmogrification needs."

    Man, they are really banking a lot on this transmorgification thing aren't they?

  6. @ MMOGC - Ha ha ha! I knew it! I'll be resubbing when 4.3 launches, so I'll see you there. :)

    @ Blue Kae - It's almost like Blizzard does it to make her come back.

    @ Yeebo - Darkmoon has always been pretty sad. I'm looking forward to seeing what they add.

    @ Jayedub - That could be bad. It's a good thing it will be a sanctuary now. At least, outside of the pit.

    @ Bronte - Considering how much people have been beating on them to add a cosmetic option, I'm glad to see them going for it so hard.
