There are several new additions to the Darkmoon Faire including a new challenger for pet battlers. Let me introduce you to Jeremy Feasel‘s older brother.
Look at me, now look at my horse, now look back at me, are I not the most impressive battler of pets that you have ever seen?
Look now at my compatriot over there. Is he on a horse? Of course not! Is his hat made of fireworks? Not in a million years! Everything about me is more impressive, from my coat color to my last name, which I made myself.
Dare you step up to the might of Christoph Willikens Dennis Ragnaros VonFeasel the First?
I can see you trembling!
My initial battle on the beta wasn’t too bad, in fact it was rather amusing at the end but having to listen to the sound of that cow >.<
Today I decided to try another team which worked out pretty well but note that Syd is no longer an aquatic but magic pet. Best of all, I received the pet from my first bag!
A new daily requires you to fly through a series of rings (just like the Alysrazor fight in Firelands). The aim is to stack as many charges to your Wings of Flame buff before the buff falls off giving you only 10 seconds to reach the next ring. The challenge not only comes from knowing the route and anticipating which direction to go next so timing is everything.
There are three achievements associated with the daily:
Cavern of Lament
Head down into the Cavern of Lament at ~74, 38, right under the submerged shipwreck, previously known as the underwater cavern. Kill one of the elites named Erinys to loot Broken Promises where you’ll receive a Ring of Broken Promises as a reward (note you can only hand this in at level 100).
A new vendor called Chester sells vestments and oddities:
- Last Deck of Nemelex Xobeh (130 Tickets)
- Haunting Memento (90 Tickets)
- Noblewoman’s Finery (75 Tickets) – female specific
- Noblewoman’s Skirt (75 Tickets) – female specific
- Noble’s Fancy Boots (55 Tickets) – fe/male
- Nobleman’s Pantaloons (75 Tickets) – male specific
- Nobleman’s Coat (75 Tickets) – male specific
I’ll be sure to wear the set with my High Society Top Hat.
Several older items can now be added to the Toy Box:
The beta also had this racing circuit but it’s since been removed.
A racing circuit involves a series of quests like First Test Race: 1 Lap where you’re required to hit certain markers along the route. A number of spring and teleporting boosts can help you while zeppelins are designed to hinder. The Powerup Pitstop located next to the quest giver can even summon rabbits who taunt.
