Clarification Edit

If you're interested, I was able to turn in 15 small paws and 10 leather boots to get my first 5 tickets... Each turn in earned me exactly 100 repuration points (for a total of 500).

  • Vendor value of 5 ticket prize: 9s60c
  • Vendor value of items needed for 5 tickets: 8s12c
  • Value of getting you to waste 6 hours gathering crap in a game you pay a monthly fee for: PRICELESS.

I returned later, and found that I could no longer turn in paws or boots. I don't know if it's limited to a single visit, bcause I actually claimed a prize, or if it was because I reached 500 points of reputation with the faire.But for whatever reason, only the next level of quests were available (5x Torn Bear Pelt and 3x Toughened Leather Armor). - Laisren 04:20, 14 Aug 2005 (EDT)

PvP flags Edit

The following lines seem not to be true:

However, while it is in the other faction's area you will be flagged PvP-enabled regardless of realm type, so be cautious. Enemy players will be able to attack you anytime.

On my PvE server (Eonar), Horde folks were not PvP flagged when they came to visit the Faire in Elwynn Forest.

I was pretty sure it works the way I described it, even more so after reading Laisren's comments about corpses on PR-realms, etc. But now I've checked the realm type guide and it seems that you are right. As I'm not playing on PvE/RP alot I cannot fully verify.
--ThrawnD 17:39, 9 Aug 2005 (EDT)
I can verify it: I've run through Horde 15The Barrens with my Alliance 15Druid and into Horde 15Mulgore or Horde 15Durotar when I was bored.
--Powerlord 19:34, 9 Aug 2005 (EDT)
You can verify...? I assume this means you were not flagged PvP on your journeys just by going through those regions?
-- Fandyllic 5:41 PM PDT 9 Aug 2005
I too can verify - I'm on a PvE server, and I remained unflagged. I did get attacked by one of the guards standing by the main entrance, so I just had to make sure I stayed away from the guard.
--FeldmanSkitzoid 23:27, 15 Aug 2005 (EDT)
I can confirm though that you get PvP flagged if you try to enter an enemy city. Even on PvE servers. Just tried it with my Alliance 15rogue going into the Undercity sewers. Jormungand01 (talk) 17:33, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
I'm a little shocked by the lack of PvE players here, but I would like to add the only places on a PvE server where you will be automatically PvP flagged is upon entering enemy cities, entering wintergrasp or having _some_ (a few of Grizzly Hills) PvP quests in your quest log. --catbeef (talk) 02:28, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Blizzard Post Edit

Blizzard Rep post, 2005-June-29: [1]

"At the beginning of each month, the Darkmoon NPC’s will begin setting up their tents in either Mulgore or 
Elwynn Forrest (sic.). The setup process takes a few days, after which the faire will be active 
for players to visit. The Darmoon Faire lasts for a week before leaving town. It changes locations between Mulgore 
and Elwynn Forrest each month. 

The Darkmoon Faire NPC’s are available for all players to interact with regardless of their location. However, Horde players and NPC’s may not be as happy to see the Alliance wandering through Mulgore, and vise versa. "

If you like this idea, please take the time to make a simple reply that says, "Good Idea."

I thought about this over night. The game is mostly centered around questing and fighting and team work with other players. Well what if there was a specific level that was nothing but a large fair ground with a medieval theme. You would have games and prizes and special events and tourneys. The place could be its own island. There could be archer tournaments, little booths that players could rent to sell their wares, special costumes that can only be purchased there, matching games, and a wide variety of assorted mini games. Similar to those we have at real fair grounds. Fighting tournaments, scavenger hunts throughout the whole Island, and diving for treasure games. The possibilities for this are nearly limitless and it gives all the players a place to go and have FUN! Prizes could include various clothing garments like sunglasses or paint to add a person design to armors or everything to teddy bears and little trinkets. For tourneys, you can have special titles given to characters that prove themselves worthy or special trophies.

All those who believe this would be a great idea, add a post in agreement. Also, if you have any suggestions for the fair grounds, go ahead and add them too. It'll be interesting to hear what everyone would like to play ^_^

(Think it's legit?) Laisren 02:13, 6 Jul 2005 (EDT)

This post is 3 months old, and doesn't seem to have anything to do with the faire as currently implemented.
--Powerlord 09:17, 6 Jul 2005 (EDT)
Quite a simlar idea though, no? Saying it's 3 months old seems to reinforce idea origination theory... [ Laisren 03:05, 18 Jul 2005 (EDT) ]
Just because someone had a similar idea, doesn't mean the idea originated there. I think anyone who's been to a Ren Fair, which have been going on for a decade or more, would have come up with the idea of putting it into a medieval-themed video game. Mozai 14:50, 9 October 2006 (EDT)

2008 Schedule Edit

I added a 2008 fair schedule --Bringtehpain 21:40, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Rep tiers Edit

Playing with a level 15 and a level 19 toon, found that after two turn-ins of tier 2 ticket quests, tier 1 disappeared as expected, but tier 3 did not become available. This must mean there is either a rep requirement or more likely a level requirement for the upper level ticket quests (more likely, because the current article focuses on rep.)

Also found that "Some ticket turn-ins have level limits set on them" is misleading; my impression is that all of the turn-ins probably have a level limit. With the same level 15 and level 19 toons, I'm only seeing three: the Darkmoon Flower which is cosmetic only, and is probably available at any level, the level appropriate Minor Darkmoon Prize, and the Darkmoon Storage Box. Removed the word 'some'.

"You can turn in the highest level turning items even if you do not have that profession. This is a change from past WoW versions." - You can do any of the turn-ins even if you do not have that profession. I've done it with 2nd tier leather. Using items purchased from the auction house works just fine. (I haven't tried this with Tier 1.)

"Another method of increasing your reputation past this point is by the quest "The Darkmoon Faire." The Horde and Alliance versions are available to any race of both factions, and are not mutually exclusive, although it will be difficult for an Alliance member to get the Horde quest, and vice versa. This quest is not repeatable, and most players will have done it before hitting this point in their reputation anyway." - Because doing this once yields only 75 rep, it will have no effect on the Darkmoon Ticket quest tier cutoffs, which are all in increments of 250. You could do both the Horde and Alliance versions before you ever started turning in items and still turn in the same items. (Is the Shattrath City "The Darkmoon Faire" quest a third quest, which can be completed separately? Even if it is, you could do all three, gaining 225 rep, and it still would not change the Darkmoon Ticket quest tier cutoffs. A fourth similar quest would, though.)

The Green Fireworks turn-in is now (2.4.x) 36 fireworks instead of 72. Which I discovered after buying some two-hundred fireworks and having to fill my inventory with them. --Gordal (talk) 15:24, 9 September 2008 (UTC)


Just went by the faire today, when i noticed the banner of the Scourge in the professor's tent! (The guy who collects the card sets). And in the other corner of his tent is the satyrs' flag. Conspiracy theorists welcome... --Hurax (talk) 17:26, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, he does make some reference to "the Master" as being the hiddeen personage who wants these various cards real bad... but I had just thought that was a Dr. Who reference.--ClemSnide (talk) 23:02, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Rep structure changed for the turn-insEdit

I did the green fireworks turn-ins with a level 25 rogue. Each turn in gave 275 DMF rep. (I updated the article, had 250.) The turn-in cut off early, when I reached 1732 rep; should have allowed one more, so the 1750 number must be wrong, too. Madkaugh (talk) 22:32, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

My bad; the rogue was a human, I forgot that I got a 10% reputation bonus. I updated the article to reflect the normal reputation gain and the reputation gain for humans.
The reputation cutoff numbers in the article are incorrect. First, there's a contradiction within the article:
"Tier 1 (Yields 1 DMF Ticket, requires level 1, cuts off at 500 reputation, you can do 2/2 turn-ins, 2/2 as a human) "
"For example, after gaining 440 reputation with the Darkmoon Faire, you can no longer do the Small Furry Paw turn-in."
Second, I had only 1732 rep, and could not do another Green Fireworks turn-in, so the reported 1750 rep cutoff was too high. I changed the value to 1700 in the article, but this is only a guess at a better value - better than 'clearly wrong'. I will research and try to replace this with a better number. Madkaugh (talk) 20:38, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
Allakhazam lists 1700 as the cutoff value for the 3rd Tier turn-ins, claims 3 of the 4 methods are 'confirmed' (by implication; actually states that the 4th is unconfirmed), but does not say how this determination was made. Also lists 1100 as the cutoff value for tier 2, rather than the 1250 WoWwiki lists. Tier 1 is listed as 500, tier 4 is listed as 2500, the same as WoWwiki (other than our contradiction, noted above.) Thottbot agrees with Allakhazam's cutoff schedule. Could not find a corresponding schedule on WoWhead. Madkaugh (talk) 21:11, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Took a pantload of Rogues Decks to the Faire, and confirmed that all the other sites are WRONG: Tier 1 quests become unavailable at 425 rep, not 500. Will try with human to try to get between 400 and 425 to further nail it down. Updating article. Keyesc (talk) 17:38, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Verified today on human toon: at 385 rep, Tier 1 was available; at 412 rep, Tier 1 becomes unavailable. I presume Blizz makes 400 the limit, so am updating article to indicate the cutoff is at 401. Keyesc (talk) 21:11, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Fortune timer Edit

"If you go to the fortune seeking Gnoll, Sayge, he will tell you your fortune by giving you a strong buff and a small note. You can receive a new buff only after at least two hours and if your buff has run out. " -- This doesn't seem accurate. The time between when Sayge will talk to you is at least 2 hours (possibly more) but it is possible to have multiple buffs. I am trying to get the rep up and am vising sayge repeatedly this week. Last night got my sayge buff... logged out, logged in today, got a 2nd Sayge buff on my toon stacking with the first. In truth it appears that the Sayge will only buff you every 2 hours (real time) but the buffs last for 2 hours (in game time). Not sure how better to clarify Trilless (talk) 21:36, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Rep Table Edit

I followed the table while I turned in items for my DMF rep today. I was able to turn in one more 'Tier 4' quest than suggested, taking me to 2750 rep. I then was able to turn in an extra 'Tier 5' quest, taking me to 5250 total rep. My limited knowledge of wikicode won't allow me to update the table to reflect this. Hope somebody else can fix it, ty :) --Grynd (talk) 12:39, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
