There are several new additions to the Darkmoon Faire including a new challenger for pet battlers. In some regards, he’s Jeremy Feasel‘s twin but there are clear differences.
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!
The battle wasn’t too bad, in fact it was rather amusing at the end but having to listen to the sound of that cow >.<
Tomorrow I’ll work on another team and probably use the opportunity to level up a certain familial pet each month after it hits live servers, just like his relative.
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, you’ll be competing with other players so timing is everything.
There are three achievements associated with the daily:
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.
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.
Also of note is the new vendor called Chester who sells vestments and oddities. At the moment he only stocks two items:
I’ll be sure to buy both items when the time comes. I may even wear it with my High Society Top Hat.
As the nights get cooler on this side of the world, what better time to warm yourselves against a virtual flame? Midsummer Fire Festival is just revving up and although there’s nothing new to do if you’ve completed all your achievements already, you can still pick up a Crown of the Fire Festival if you’ve previously completed A Thief’s Reward. If you’re like me, you destroy yours every year just so you can save a bag slot.
This year, Cool was kind enough to create a banner just for the occasion so check out the one on his site if you’d like to see a higher resolution.
Oh and if you haven’t picked up a Qiraji Guardling yet, they’ve already been spotted outside the gates and ruins of AQ.
I’m not sure if anything is in the cards for this years Noblegarden event but whether there is or there isn’t, I’d like to wish everyone a wonderful and peaceful Easter celebration.
A very special thanks to Coolidge for illustrating this event for me. He did a great job capturing Cymre (in my chosen outfit) and I had fun adding these background elements. As always, if you’d like to see a higher resolution, check out his blog.
It just dawned on me that I didn’t get to try any Easter themed chocolate this year so please have an extra egg or bunny for me.
