Daily Quests

Participate in the Carnival games to earn Darkmoon Game Prizes. Playing most games costs a Darkmoon Game Token, which can be purchased from NPCs at the Faire grounds.

Profession Quests

Are you a skilled craftsman (or woman)? The Darkmoon Faire needs your help to keep its activities going! Use your skills to keep the Faire a fun place for everyone, and you will get more than just gratitude from it! Helping the faire gives you insight regarding your own skills, making you a better crafter in the long run. It doesn't hurt that you also get Game Tokens and Prize Tickets for your troubles!

Darkmoon Artifacts

Upon reaching the Faire, you can acquire a Darkmoon Adventurer's Guide. This guide will allow you to collect Darkmoon Artifacts such as the Captured Insignia or a Mysterious Grimoire while doing activities such as questing, dungeons, raids or PvP out in the world. Turn in those artifacts at the Faire for fabulous prizes!


Darkmoon Deathmatch Pit

Feeling lucky? How long can you last against impossible odds? Do you have what it takes to best all comers and take the pit fighter's prize? Every three hours, on the hour, you will have a chance to compete for the prize. But if wanton destruction is all you care about, the pit is always open.

ETC Band Concert

The Elite Tauren Chieftains (Samuro, Sig Nicious, Bergrisst, Mai'Kyl and Chief Thunder-Skins) play near the boardwalk at the Faire. They will be here all week long for your viewing pleasure so make sure to check it out and /dance to their amazing music.

Racing Challenge

Head down to the boardwalk and race all over the countryside around the Darkmoon Faire. Avoid the course's obstacles using speed boosts, springboards and other tools and tricks to finish the race as fast as you can. Only the fastest racers qualify to earn fabulous rewards!

Pet Battles

Challenge the Pet Battle Masters of the Darkmoon Faire. If you best them, you have a chance to earn the Darkmoon Eye and Syd the Squid!

Merchants & Vendors

You can use your hard-earned Darkmoon Prize Tickets to redeem all sorts of prizes!

The Darkmoon Faire offers a myriad of interesting items, transmog sets, pets and mounts.


Darkmoon Dancing Bear

A lot of people like bears. Even more of those like dancing bears. For the low, low price of 180 Darkmoon Prize Tickets, you too can forever own a rideable dancing bear. What else could you ask for?

Swift Forest Strider

From the dark woods surrounding the Faire grounds, comes the Swift Forest Strider. This mount can be acquired for 180 Darkmoon Prize Tickets from Lhara.


Several pets are available at the Darkmoon Faire from Lhara for 90 Darkmoon Prize Tickets each. They can also sometimes be found inside Darkmoon Game Prize boxes. Those include the Darkmoon Baloon, Darkmoon Monkey, Darkmoon Turtle, Darkmoon Tonk, Darkmoon Zeppelin, Darkmoon Cub and the Darkmoon Hatchling. Additionally, you can obtain the following pets from events at the faire:

Darkmoon Rabbit

If you defeat the vicious Darkmoon Rabbit, you have a chance to obtain this adorable (and dangerous!) companion.

Moon Moon

This cute little wolf must be taken care of by someone valorous, lest he become a monster like Moonfang.

Classic Dungeon Gear

Baruma offers complete replicas of Classic Dungeon sets. These replicas have no combat statistics, but can be used for transmogrification purposes. They can be redeemed for Darkmoon Prize Tickets (individual redemption values vary).
