This is exciting! I'm so glad its a rather creepy atmosphere that reminds me of Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury instead of bright and cheery like a state fair :D

A question here: do the old Darkmoon tickets work for the new Darkmoon stuff? Because you could really stock up if they do! Just do a whole bunch of repeatables now on live.

I'm really loving the music of the island. After the initial quirky Faire theme, it mellows out into this fantastic atmospheric sound that honestly reminds me a lot of Danny Elfman's work from Tim Burton movies like Edward Scissorhands and Nightmare Before Christmas.

For those curious: the Darkmoon Tide Crawlers are (presently?) untameable, and come in a vast variety of colors. If they are, indeed, becoming tameable, they will probably be color-changers between blue, red, bronze, and white.

Wandering around, I happened to come across a character, Ellie Goodup. Most of the time, she's keeping an eye on the animals in her tent. Once in a while, though, she apparently takes her pet lioness out for a quick walk along the strip.

Also, for Dumbo fans, there is an elephant named 'Jumbo', and her baby, 'Jumbo Junior'. Loving it!

Would be neat if the crabs become different IDs and fill in all the unused rune crab models we have. So then we will have more than one stable green with blue runes and the color changer we have now. Rune crabs are too beautiful not to have more of.

EDIT: All the crabs do currently have the same NPCID of 55475. If they are made tameable they will color change. They are level 10-11.

That cave reminds me of that episode of Family Guy where they find the fish named Daggermouth in. It was be a great reference if they maybe add a beast named that in that cave. Maybe a hydra (unused orange skin if they become tameable later on *nudges Noah*).

The thing I'm most interested in is the tallstrider mount. *glee* I'm guessing it's the purple skin, not the teal skin, but I still want it!

i answered my own question posed above: no. Old tickets can *not* be used for Darkmoon Faire (surprise, surprise). They turned into 'tattered tickets' and are, apparently, only good for vending. I might wander a bit and try to find other uses for them, but for the moment I'd say that's the whole of it.

You can buy tokens with gold to play games to earn tickets. There are a couple dailies there. I couldn't do them though. Was too laggy, but from what I saw you get 5 tickets for some and 10 for others.

I think its just during the first week of the month like now.

And Jumbina! ;) Soooooo cute! <3

And they're across the way from the lion, lioness, and cubs. One of the cubs is <The Little Prince>. :D

This is definitely the highlight of the Faire, at least for me. :)

Ahahahaha, did not see the snot bubbles! Good catch!

Also, be sure to check out the "exotic" guests waiting for a "VIP tour" next to our sleeping buddy. They're part of the attraction and don't even know it! I've seen Arakkoa, Wolvar, and Oracles so far.
