Are they discontinuing Darkmoon Faire?

General Discussion
I notice Darkmoon Faire runs the first week of every month up through August, then it doesn't happen anymore in the game calendar at all, and I went several months ahead even though other events are scheduled.

Is the Darkmoon Faire being discontinued? I really like that feature and DO NOT want to see it go.

From what I can see, after August 2013 all the way through February 2014- Darkmoon Faire is no more.
Don't know about being discontinued, but they should probably get the health department to condemn that place. Getting to be a pretty crappy place, with all that trash laying around that never seems to get cleaned up.
I better hurry up and score as many DM Capes as I can for transmog on my toons and get my DM Zeppelin before they stop it for good in August.
They just haven't added it to the calendar yet that far in advance.

But I can go all the way to February 2014 and see all the scheduled holiday events, and the Stranglethorn Fishing thing is every Sunday from now until then. No more DM Faire-- means no more of that DM Special Reserve either to get my toon vomit-smashed on with just 3 swigs! lol!

All the other events for the next 12 months have been added to the calendar. Means I got until August to get everything I want from that place before it ends permanently in August.

It's just not added onto the calender yet.

So why are all the other events already added then? Admittedly I'm trying to see where you're coming from but hey, "Love is in the Air 2014" is already plotted on the calendar.

Because other events are based on a set day on the calendar. The DMF is not. Since the first sunday of the month is always a different date, they have to add it in manually. It seems that they don't have a "X days before and after date Y are world event Z" algorithm for the DMF, as they do for holidays and world events.

They'll add the DMF to those months later on.

Thank you for sharing. I like your response. :-)

If nothing else there's BOA gear, a couple companion pets, and a few items I want out of that place. But I've only been playing since October so it didn't make sense to me otherwise. But I was like "Oh, shoot! I only got until August to try to get all this stuff, I better put all my toons on this thing from now until then!" lol!

Seemed there was a lot of unused areas still on that feature. couldn't decide if that's just for prop-value or if those are in fact things for future development? Who knows.

Hey, If nothing else I'm looking forward to Brewfest too. Curious what Harvest Festival is all about but that's September. :D
they are trying to get people to participate a bit more in darkmoon faire, they aren't removing it.

with the addition of bonus bags that might contain useful hats.
Maybe they stopped showing it on the calender because there "might" be some new events coming round that time in one of a couple of those under construction tents.

When are they doing that?

Funny thing is, was working up my shaman's inscription so I can make those DM cards. I already have made 2 small decks and got a couple cool pieces of gear for transmog that way.

But so far got the DM Dancing Bear, DM Tonk, a piece of BOA on my Shaman. By the time I get done with what I want to do on this toon she's probably gonna look like a DM Faire "groupie" or something. lol! :-)

I've been wondering if those tents were really going to be used eventually or just "props" (scenery), etc.
I went forward in the calendar and saw the release date for Titan
Titan, is that the next xpac to follow Pandaria?
