Darkmoon Faire 2.0

So for those sitting around in Stormwind or Orgrimmar bored out of their wits, fear not for the Darkmoon Fair is making a comeback with a vengeance.

If you’ve been to the Darkmoon Fair before, you’re probably brushing off the announcement at its return but if you are, you likely aren’t aware of the revamps coming its way.

There’s already been a fair amount of news on the PTR regarding the upgraded Darkmoon Fair and for those of you wondering how big of a change we’re talking, keep in mind that the Darkmoon Fair is also being given it’s entire zone from this Fair onward.

So again, if you’re bored with the repetitive dungeon grinding, why not kick back a while? Spend some time at the Fair to recharge those raiding batteries and by the time you get back into the swing of things, it won’t seem quite so much like work.

There are a lot of new events to try your hand at this time around including things from harmless little minigames (the human cannon is making a return as well), to even PvP of sorts as they’re including an arena zone (think of places like the Nagrand or Gurubashi arenas).

It’s also not to say that there aren’t any permanent benefits to spending some time at the new and updated fair.

They’re also releasing blank stat replicas of the tier 0 dungeon gear from vanilla WoW for transmogrification purposes as well as a mount, pets and little fun trinkets like things that look like the foam sword from the collectible card game.

Trying out the new events can be fun at all but a little lonely…

That’s why I’d recommend dragging in some friends along for the fun.

It’d be a fun way to collectively take a break from raiding together if you grab up a group of your guildies or fellow raiders and heading over to the Fair together.

The only thing that could really make little minigames such as these more amusing is if you’re competing with your friends (or enemies!) for high scores and the like.

So then the next patch drops, take some time off, grab your guildies and enjoy the new and updated Fair.
