Faerie Dragon Circle

In the western part of Tirisfal Glades, you’ll find a magical ring of mushrooms at the heart of the Whispering Forest. The mushrooms emit a faint glow and every so often, a number of Fey-Drunk Darters will appear. They spawn individually at approximately ten to fifteen minute intervals so you’ll be in for a wait, but if you decide to hang around, you won’t be disappointed.

Once all the Fey-Drunk Darters have spawned, it will be another hour or so before they start to move in unison. Magical golden notes appear above their heads as if they are singing.

While the music is playing, beams of golden light shine from each Darter, converging in the centre of the mushroom ring – known as the Faerie Circle. The deer, fawn and stags in the area seem enchanted by the music as they slowly gather around the circle. The event lasts ~2mins ending when the Darters slowly turn to fly away, perhaps fading out to the Emerald Dream. The curious animals similarly walk away as if nothing had happened.

The event appears to happen every six hours or so but it’s more impressive at night.

For those who haven’t experienced the magic of the Faerie Circle yet, you’re really missing out on something special.

I’m not the first to write about this event, in fact I’ve mentioned it before but I thought it deserved another feature because of the video.

I’m going to have to make a sightseeing list. This is definitely one place I’d like to see again.

After seeing some posts on this I finally went and hung out to check it out one evening. Well worth the really long wait! Makes me so curious about whether it will ever tie in to anything in game in the future.

I love this place…have gone to watch this numerous times since I discovered it & have taken friends along to show it to them too.

I remember a while ago camping this for a couple weeks trying to catch the event. I had seen a video and wanted to experience it first hand. I never did, but the video makes it look so spectacular! Maybe it’s time to go camp again :)

    Definitely! You could always log an alt there and check in every so often. If you see at least one sprite, you know you’re that much closer to seeing the event.

    ENJOY! :)
