Quite a while ago, I splurged and bought the Darkmoon Eye from the Auction House as I’ve had no luck from doing the battles each month. Then after my latest trouble with a rabbit raid several weeks ago, I wasn’t looking forward to another week of trying but then today, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a Darkmoon Rabbit for just 2K in the Auction House.
I know, I couldn’t believe it either – especially since I’ve been trying to generate money on other servers just to buy one but it never worked out… until today.
I was a little worried about the AH pet bug I read about earlier as I didn’t want my gold going down the virtual drain. Apparently some people experienced some pets in the AH coming up as ‘Pet Cage’ and having empty cages in their bags but a rabbit for 2k was too good to pass up so after a few seconds of hesitation, I bought and learnt it immediately. After the run of bad luck I had last night, I figured I was due some good luck or rather good karma.
I can’t believe I have my very own rabbit (ever since I saw my first one on the beta) and the eye completes the set!
Now with the new additions to the Darkmoon Faire, I’ve been doing my dailies on several toons in the hopes of getting my Brawler’s item from the Darkmoon Game Prize. So far, I’ve managed to get quite a few of the Darkmoon Top Hats and Carousel rides like the Darkmoon “Rocket”. One day I’ll even fish up the Darkmoon Fishing Cap.
Now to level up my latest additions… where are some rissoles when I need them? I guess the hot dogs will have to do :P

The Darkmoon Faire is here for another month with a lot of exciting changes from Patch 5.1. A new Pet Tamer to defeat, wild pets and vendor pet.
First off is the Darkmoon Glowfly which may be captured on the outskirts of the island. Note that the level of pet can vary between 1-10 but may be seen in all quality levels (after a recent hotfix).
The Crow is a little more elusive as it only appears as one of several possible secondary pets to the Glowfly. Due to the level of the Darkmoon Glowfly, you’ll also find the crow in a wide variety of levels and qualities. However as the level of the Darkmoon Glowfly dictates whether you’ll have a secondary pet or not, you will need to spend a lot of time and effort to camp for a rare.
You can also try your luck with the very snazzy looking Tamer of the Faire. Each day he will offer the quest – Darkmoon Pet Battle! for the price of a game token. Completing the quest will reward you with the Darkmoon Pet Supplies which has a chance to include a Darkmoon Eye – currently seen as a member of his team.

Location: On the west side of the lane between the shooting gallery and souvenir stalls – 47, 62
Level 25 Epic Pets: Fezwixk (Beast), Honky-Tonk (Mechanical) and Judgement (Magic)
The fight itself was fairly easy compared to the Pandaren Spirit Tamers – unless of course you forget to switch out your low level pet first :P
But if you’re looking to spend your stash of tickets, look no further than Lhara who has the Darkmoon Hatchling on offer for 90 tickets.
OK, this is new.
I’ve done this daily countless times before and I’ve even hoped that Blizzard would implement an achievement for when we get 10 bullseyes. Except for the times when I need about 7 tickets to complete said daily. Luckily, that doesn’t happen too often. On a positive note, I think I’d have the achievement by now so that’s something.
A few months ago, I mentioned during my Twisted Nether interview, a certain mishap that happened on my way to the targeting ring. After one attempt, I levitated myself as I made my way to shore, using the instant teleport for a quick return and paid for another go at the cannon. Things were going fine, as I drew closer to the targeting ring, I hit the button to release but I kept going… and going… and going – past the ring – and hit fatigue.
Unfortunately, hitting any of my buttons didn’t do anything. I actually thought I was going to die once my fatigue bar hit zero but a few seconds after hitting the dark section of the water, I slowly felt myself declining.
After a few more seconds, I hit the water without dying.
In the past, you may have had the bug where you get shot from the cannon, only to start falling in the direction of the trees (just before you reach the water). This has happened to me twice before.
Today, something even weirder happened.
I had hardly left the cannon when I just appeared to be hovering a few feet past the blast zone. Notice the sand pit and tigers just to my left? At first I thought I had a lag spike, until I started hearing the 5sec countdown. Uh oh, Houston, I think we have a problem and I’m not in Kansas any more.
I ended up hitting the pile of cannonballs right next to the cannon. Talk about a painful landing… don’t get me started on those. Let’s just say my body part in question is now green.
Has this happened to anyone else out there or am I just unlucky?
