Good News Everyone! (Darkmoon Faire)

#1 Unread post by Kurasu » Sat Nov 12, 2011 9:09 am

On the last day of the Faire, I was sitting on 200 tickets. Now, we got an extra day due to a shutdown, I'm pretty sure (I won't guarantee but that's how it seemed). Also, there was the one day when the turtle ring-toss wasn't working at all (grumble grumble waste of 10 whole tokens). You get 25 per day (5 x 5 dailies) as well as tickets from the 6 monthly 'profession quests'. Therefore, that means that it is possible to get, without any of the Darkmoon Artifacts, 180 tickets every faire. This means that as long as you do your dailies, you can buy one Darkmoon mount or two Darkmoon pets every time the faire is in town!

... and for the record, here's a dwarf on a Forest Strider.

Yay!

I decided to try a tallstrider on Gypsi last night and went for the blue, but my friend was unimpressed and insisted that I go pick up the purple. I'll have to make that mount my first one from the fair on Gypsi.

(now I just have to get her those last three levels...)

I am ridiculously excited to get my Kevin mount. :D (Kevin's my purple strider) It will definitely be the first thing I work towards. ^^

It's disappointing that they didn't update textures or even give them a saddle, but I'm glad to finally have tallstrider mounts! Good work on earning one.

I too got my tallstrider! I did the dailies once a day (minus the turtle daily for those days when the turtle daily was broken) and ended up with 190 tokens.

Now if only they had their old run back... :(

Oh, and I was going to get the bear on Espen, but I forgot to do the dailies one day so I was short :(

But here's a kitty! :D

Sadly, there is only one Tallstrider mount at the faire. And it's the purple one. There may be others elsewhere, though I don't know where for sure!

The TCG Tallstrider mount uses the brown skin I believe.

Yeah, it's this one:

So if you're really keen on a duller colour on one you'd have to spend roughly US $100 on it. :(

As far as I know there are only 4 mounts added to the database. I presume the "love bird" one will be pink, which means the white and grey models haven't been used. We can always hope they'll make it into the game later.

Judging from its name and likely colour, I bet the Lovebird mount will be a new Love is in the Air reward this year.

That would be nice. I have yet to see anyone with the rocket.

Maybe the drop rate will go up and the birdie will be a vendor mount. :D

Lets hope so! I'd like both.
