    1. Introduction.

    Hello, everyone. With the Darkmoon Faire looming around the corner, I thought it would be nice to have a brief guide on how to obtain all the Darkmoon Races’ rewards as well as the simpler daily quest rewards for Starter Edition players. I have gathered up some YouTube Videos (Not my own!) from other users in order to provide a single place of all the compiled information regarding Darkmoon Faire for those new to the event.


    2. What you will need.

    -Level 20 for the Racing Quests
    -Lots of http://www.wowhead.com/item=71083/darkmoon-game-tokens
    -Complete the http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37819/welcome-to-the-darkmoon-races Quest to open repeatable Racing Quests
    -Patience (as some of the Races can require precise jumps and multiple attempts)



    3. Daily Quest Rewards.
    There are six (6) Daily Quest Rewards from the Darkmoon Faire that may be acquired by Starter Edition players. I will be covering four (4) of them:


    1)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=29463/its-hammer-time
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9983/thats-whack
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=123862/hogs-studded-collar
    Goal: Reach Score of 45
    Description:
    This one is pretty straight forward: Just aim for Hoggers (over normal Gnolls) that have popped out of the barrel most recently. Avoid traveling far for Hoggers/Gnolls that have been up for more than 2 seconds.


    _______________________________________

    2)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=29434/tonk-commander
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9885/ace-tonk-commander
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122122/darkmoon-tonk-controller
    Goal: Reach Score of 45
    Description:
    You will notice that you can fire off a Tonk shot and start moving on to the next one before the cannonball reaches its target, this can shave some seconds off of your total time. Also be smart with your boosts: I often like to use them when surrounded by enemy tonks and zeppelins in order to avoid getting shot down.


    _______________________________________

    3)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=36481/firebirds-challenge
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9252/brood-of-alysrazor
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=116115/blazing-wings
    Goal: Reach Score of 50
    Description:
    There are a few optimal paths for hitting as many rings without running out of time between each ring. Check out the video below for an example of one.


    _______________________________________

    4)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=29455/target-turtle
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9894/triumphant-turtle-tossing
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122123/darkmoon-ring-flinger
    Goal: Reach Score of 10
    Description:
    The trick to this mini-game is to aim for the middle (where the turtle stops and changes direction) and to toss the ring as soon as the turtle reaches the outer ring and turns back around towards the center. The throwing animation and ring flight last as long as the turtle’s sprint back to the center.

    4. Race Rewards.
    There are eight (8) Race Rewards from the Darkmoon Faire that may be acquired by level 20+ characters:

    1)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37910/the-real-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9761/darkmoon-racer-roadhog
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122129/fire-eaters-vial
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 11 Tolls or less
    Description:
    The most important thing I have noticed on this race is to hit all the gates for maximum speed boost. Also some optimal angles and shortcuts are required to reach the finish line under 11 tolls. Utilize your https://www.wowhead.com/spell=179748 skill to shave seconds off your time. This will most likely take several attempts.

    2)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37911/the-real-big-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9799/big-race-roadhog
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122128/checkered-flag
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 20 Tolls or less
    Description:
    This one is tough. Requires precision jump to bypass a portion of the course, this can also be achieved if you have a friend sitting up top for you to use the Strider’s http://www.wowhead.com/spell=179804/jump-to-racer ability on him.


    _______________________________________

    3)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37910/the-real-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9764/rocketeer-gold
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122119/everlasting-darkmoon-firework
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 11 Tolls or less
    Description:
    Rocketeer achievements are pretty easy as this Darkmoon Faire mount has two (2) Dash abilities (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=150228/boosters + http://www.wowhead.com/spell=179533/giant-leap) along with a passive that lets you parachute at higher speed than normal run speed.

    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37911/the-real-big-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9805/big-rocketeer-gold
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122125/race-minizep-controller
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 20 Tolls or less
    Description:
    Rocketeer achievements are pretty easy as this Darkmoon Faire mount has two (2) Dash abilities (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=150228/boosters + http://www.wowhead.com/spell=179533/giant-leap) along with a passive that lets you parachute at higher speed than normal run speed. The part where you bypass a portion of the Big Race’s course is the easiest with the Rocketeer (You even have multiple options of how to do it).

    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37910/the-real-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9792/wanderluster-gold
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122126/attraction-sign
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 11 Tolls or less
    Description:
    This one is troublesome. Lots of people seem to have trouble with this one. I don’t have any suggestions other than to keep banging your head against the wall and practice timing for using http://www.wowhead.com/spell=153397/jump-to-hazard & http://www.wowhead.com/spell=152875/danger-zone. Good luck.

    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37911/the-real-big-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9811/big-wanderluster-gold
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122121/darkmoon-gazer
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 20 Tolls or less
    Description:
    Oddly enough the larger course is easier with the Wanderlust than the short course. The passive glide ability makes bypassing the first portion of the course very easy. http://www.wowhead.com/spell=153397/jump-to-hazard & http://www.wowhead.com/spell=152875/danger-zone help a lot too.

    7)
    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37910/the-real-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9785/powermonger-gold
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122120/gaze-of-the-darkmoon
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 11 Tolls or less
    Description:
    Seems daunting like the short course for the Wanderlust. http://www.wowhead.com/spell=152725/jump-to-powerup helps a little with boosts, but linking http://www.wowhead.com/spell=153026/battery storage with using the stored power-ups will improve your time the most.

    Quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=37911/the-real-big-race
    Achievement: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=9817/big-powermonger-gold
    Reward: http://www.wowhead.com/item=122124/darkmoon-cannon
    Goal: Reach Finish Line in 20 Tolls or less
    Description:
    The most important Darkmoon Race Reward. It opens up a lot of traveling options for low-level characters. The trick to getting this relatively easily is:
    -Start the Race
    -Pick up the Rocket Launch power-up using http://www.wowhead.com/spell=153026/battery
    -Cancel the Race Quest
    -Go back and begin the race again (Be careful not to accidently walk over other racing vehicles as you will lose the power up if you switch)
    -Skip the largest portion of the course at the very beginning by using the Rocket Launch power-up

    6. Conclusion.

    I wish you the best of luck in your Darkmoon Faire endeavors. Keep your head up, and don’t lose sight of your goal. Most importantly: enjoy these mini-games, as they are a nice break from grinding NPC mobs in dungeons or other Players in BGs.


    Cheers!

    -Fat Al

    It would seem that the Darkmoon Tinctures & Draughts have been revamped without me noticing. They are now souldbound, and have a 7-day expiration timer.

    I'll "do you one better" (er, "worse"?)... some of the racing-mounts have "lost" abilities, effectively making it impossible to earn fastest-time achievements like Big Race Roadhog or Big Rocketeer: Gold! :eek:

    I think it's just a bug, there is no reason they remove some abilities from the races ...
    But you know, Blibli often do things without reasons ^^

    But I think that if they really wanted to remove abilities, they would have removed the entire "slot" of the ability, and not just leave an empty slot with still the ability to click on it, but without any reaction when we do that ...

    I'll try to get a GM answer on that, once live chats are available :)

    I did all of the possible races today for nostalgic reasons, and I can confirm that you can get gold on all of them ^^
