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.
After countless battles at the Darkmoon Faire, it finally happened. There were FOUR items in my Darkmoon Pet Supplies with a Darkmoon Eye sitting in the prime spot. I couldn’t believe it. I mean, it only took thirteen months to get one after all. When you consider that it technically took 13 weeks, it doesn’t sound that bad but we all know the sad truth, don’t we?
According to WoWHead there’s only a 1.9% chance to see one but that’s only counting the players who upload content so it’s only as accurate as the member base allows.
I bought mine after months of disappointment but even after caving and buying the pet, I was still determined to find one the old-fashioned way – plus it’s still an excellent way to level up an additional pet (in addition to the six I do most days). Generally I like to use my Lil’ Deathwing and Darkmoon Zeppelin while I level up whatever elemental pet I’m levelling that week.
Looks like Cool will be getting something special the next time he logs on.
After countless Moonfang kills, I finally caved and bought Moon Moon from the AH. Sadly, it’s only one of several pets I’ve ended up purchasing lately but after getting everything other than the drop I really wanted, it’s one less thing to worry about. I did have the opportunity to try him out on the PTR but at the time I wasn’t aware of his dance emote. You really need to try it when you get a chance.
Make that two new pets today…
If only the other Porcupette was that easy.
