Keeping all of this in mind we don’t feel the current ticket acquisition rates or reward costs are out of hand, but we’re interested to hear your thoughts after reading this information and considering the longevity of the content, as well as the ‘once a month’ format of the faire. We’ll be continually evaluating it, and we’re looking forward to incorporating more goodies to be won, and more activities to the faire, in the future.
Unfortunately, the 145 ticket number will only be available to people who do their dailies every day, have time to raid (and get lucky, because the raid drop is not guaranteed), have time to grind through old dungeons, PVP a bunch, AND grind through the new heroics until they get lucky. I already play this game way too much, and I'm nowhere near the 145 ticket number for this week. The time investment to get even 90 tickets to get a pet in a single month is just way too high, much less to max out your monthly tickets.
Increasing the number of tickets from the dailies to the PTR rate would give people a reason to go to the Faire every day, allow people a reasonable way to acquire tickets (shouldn't you earn the majority of your tickets AT the Faire?), and still allow the more hardcore people to acquire items faster by grinding through dungeons, PVP, etc for the extra tickets.
Agreed wholeheartedly... allowing people who raid and pvp to get the stuff FASTER makes perfect sense... but at 1 ticket per daily, the common folk who play are going to be painfully cut out of the transmogs/pets/mounts from this faire...
Perhaps if it were made to where your rep with the Darkmoon Faire would actually reduce ticket costs??? Then as people did it, it would becomes easier and easier?? Or increase ticket rewards per daily as your rep gets higher?? Either of those seems to be a feasible path... keep it tough to begin with, but then easier and easier as you go... and include a DMF purchasable Tabard that add rep gain too!!!!
