Off to the New Races
Starting on March 1, the Darkmoon Faire will unveil the first part of a new racing challenge to thrill and delight players of all sorts.Win yourself the new Hinweisschild, and point it at your favorite things.
Head down to the boardwalk and get started by accepting the quest ‘Willkommen beim Dunkelmond-Rennen
'. You'll learn how to race all over the countryside around the Dunkelmond-Jahrmarkt
, avoiding obstacles and using any tools and tricks you can to finish the course in the fastest time possible.Only the quickest racers will qualify for the achievements and rewards that come with them. Along the way, you'll want to use speed boosts, springboards, and a very careful aim all while avoiding boundaries which have been juiced up with a powerful stun.The Phiole des Feuerschluckers is the perfect reward if you've always wanted to make fire with your face.
This is but the first of several racing activities to come. When the Faire returns in April, a second race, new achievements, and associated rewards will be added to the first set. We expect Silas to keep adding twists and turns in future months until he has all of Azeroth running around his island:
That's right, friends! The new Unerschöpfliches Dunkelmond-Feuerwerk can be yours.
- March: ‘The Real Race', including the Rennschreiter racer and a set of achievements with rewards. (Rowdy des Dunkelmond-Rennens, Phiole des Feuerschluckers)
- April: ‘The Real Big Race', including a new Raketenrenner racer, more boosts and race buffs, and new achievements for beating the The Real Big Race with both racers. (Großer Raketenrenner: Gold, Steuerung des Renn-MiniZeps; Rowdy der Großen Sause, Karierte Flagge; Raketenrenner: Gold, Unerschöpfliches Dunkelmond-Feuerwerk)
- May: A new Zugvogel racer, new achievements for beating both races with the Zugvogel, and rewards. (Großer Zugvogel: Gold, Dunkelmond-Starrer; Zugvogel: Gold, Hinweisschild)

Updates are Best Dates
From now on, the Panzergeneral
game no longer has a maximum of 30 hits. You can now go for as many hits as possible in one minute, and scoring 45 hits earns you the ‘Panzerass
' achievement and the new Dunkelmond-Panzersteuerung
toy.Ring Toss has also been updated. The target turtle has gotten trickier than he used to be, and the rings are smaller, but winning will just take some practice on your part. It might take a lot of practice, but you'll want to give it a shot, since ten rings in a row earns you the new ‘Von Ringen und Schildkröten
' achievement and the Dunkelmond-Ringwerfer
toy. It's an explosion of rings from your victorious hands.
Don't Forget the Heirlooms
Silas asked us to remind everyone that beautiful selections of Heirloom items are available to make your very own, for only a few Gewinnlos des Dunkelmond-Jahrmarkts
s each. With the introduction of the new Heirloom collection system
in patch 6.1, there's no reason to not come play the games of the Faire and get closer to earning yourself that Chauferred Chopper!Step right up! The next Dunkelmond-Jahrmarkt
runs March 1 – March 8, and will return again on April 5. For a general overview of this unique event, check out our Dunkelmond-Jahrmarkt
