Slow grind? I've got the first pet yesterday and will get a new one everything... thats too slow? WTF?

just fyi: every artifact you find gives you 5 - 10 Prize Tokens and there are 9 of them... do the math yourself.

That's like 500 tickets per faire, I'm really bad at maths.

Several dungeon bosses later, I'll say 10+ I got another artifact to drop, and again, I was the only roller, this was AN normal instance..

This time it sold for 1500g.. maybe they are increasing the drop rate a bit, since the prices are now half from Sunday.. LOL

Still haven't seen it drop on the new heroics..

If you really pressed to get these run dungeons with your guildmates maybe pay em a bit, or offer them to tank them for the price of the drop. LOL

Charge them auction house prices (yes halabar even that has a story behind it).

Right now I'm taking gold from whoever purchased in the AH.. I could offer them at AH minus 10%, fair and square.

Almost getting 4K for my lowbie 71 for fast flying..

I've done that in most guilds, once they know the size of my nestegg, they expect handouts. :wink:

On the time required for a mount...

Done a few dailies, all the profession quests and returned already 6 artifacts (55 tickets), I'll probably farm the dungeon one I'm missing and some more pvp ones over the weekend, when I logged I was sitting at 103 tickets, so mounts are not that impossible, just looking at what is available now I've got 10 more incoming for the last dungeon, 10 potential for the raid one and 10 others for the missing pvp, means that in 10 days of dailies I could get to 180 and get my dancing bear. Not bad I'd say.


Just one question as I couldn't really understand, profession quests and artifacts are a one off or are available again at each fair? Because if it's the latter I might just go easy on the dailies and complete the mount via artifacts the next time the faire is around.

All quests can be repeated at least once each Faire, and the dungeon/raid/BG drops can be farmed at any time (even while Faire is not active) so long as you keep your Guide in your bags. With it also being possible to buy and sell a lot of stuff (the items for turn ins, and all the transmog gear is tradeable so doesn't necessarily have to be bought with your own tickets) you can really cut down how much you might need to farm the dailies.

So... is the island instanced? If not, what prevents people from just logging out a character there to continuously do the dailies?

Is definitely istanced, you have to go through the portal for that reason, else would be even easier, you could leave there an alt summon people when required.

They're probably going to shut down the area and whoever logs in during the period the faire is not active will be ported out.

EDIT:

Blues posting about it, reported by MMOchamp.

Apparently people have been complaining about the time it might take and blues reported what we've observed here, it ain't that long.

Tickets Per Faire

Dungeon: 40
Heroic Dungeon: 15
Raid: 10
Tradeskill quests (primary): 8
Tradeskill quests (secondary): 12
BGs: 15
Kill Quest: 10
Mini Games*: 35


Total Tickets per faire: 145

* 5 mini games, available daily: 7*5=35

As an example, here are some options that you can choose over the course of two Darkmoon Faires (2 weeks over 2 months):

Prioritizing mounts/pets: 1 mount + 1 pet, with 20 tickets to spare
Prioritizing pets: 3 pets, 20 tickets to spare
Prioritizing cosmetic armor: 4 pieces of cosmetic armor, with 30 tickets to spare
Prioritizing heirloom armor: 1 piece of heirloom armor + 1 heirloom weapon, with 20 tickets to spare

Yeah, it's really turning in the artifacts that give you the boost. The dailies are almost noise compared to that. I like the fact that they are BOE.

I haven't seen raid drops at all the whole week, those rates must be extremely rare, we have done 6/8 bosses on 25, if everybody has a guide, that's 150 chances to drop, so far, none..

I'm guessing LFR raid bosses don't drop any DMF stuff..

I guess 6 kills is still 6 chances, the fact that everyone can loot it doesn't improve the chances.

Remember the idea is, with this first time being the exception, that you have a full month to gather the drops for each Faire.
