Darkmoon Underwater Cavern

In the southern part of Darkmoon Island you may be surprised to find an underwater cavern, located just beneath a shipwreck that acts as a visual landmark to the cavern entrance. I first found out about this otherwise hidden area after seeing it on Pando’s site.

She also mentioned the cave on the Island where I recently wrote about the Darkmoon Rabbit in the upcoming Mists of Pandaria, I was excited to have the opportunity to go on another exploration mission; especially since the Faire is up for another few days.

The Cavern Entrance may be found in The Great Sea at the co-ordinates: 74.34.

Here’s the easiest way to get there:

Once on the Island, be sure to hit a sharp left just as you’re about to head down the hill.

After a few seconds, you’ll come to a path zigzagging down towards the sea.

This is where my Poseidus mount and underwater ring came in handy :)

Once you reach the entrance, you’ll hit fatigue for a bit but don’t worry as it dissipates the further you move inside the cavern entrance.

Just have a look at what you’ll find inside…

I thought I’d do a spot of fishing but didn’t get anything out of the ordinary. Although I’ve read that players have been pretty lucky fishing up the Sea Pony here so why not try your luck if you haven’t managed to do so yet?

After that I had a closer look at my surroundings and found it to be a visually stunning place.

On your way back out, head towards 61, 22 to find the same path leading back up to the Faire.

It makes me wonder what’s in store for this spot as there’s lots of room to add some cool things to the Faire and surrounding areas. Only time will tell…

  1. Ooh, nice find! Heard of something down there but hadn’t explored. The first green shot from inside the cavern looks spookily like the yaw of Yogg-Saron.
