Finally got a chance to get some time in around Azeroth this morning, so I took a few toons to the Darkmoon Faire. The profession quests are an easy 5 points (Saintvache needed it to hit 325 and start Disenchanting a bunch of gear he’s had for ages), to say nothing of ridiculous xp at low levels (well, it’s good xp at any level to be honest).
Saintvache had the Monstrous Egg and Ornate Weapon from dungeons and I was going to sell them for some easy gold. Then while puttering around I hit the heirloom vendor just to see what the damage is for shoulders, as I don’t have any on my Horde server. 110 tickets? Hrm…well, those two quests are 20, so I kept them and did the quests rather quickly. I also decided to do two easy games: the ring toss and the humanoid cannonball.
Now, granted, I’ve not done any of the carny games in a couple months but it would seem to me they’ve gotten more difficult. The ring toss used to take me 3-4 tosses and today it seemed to take all my rings. Then there’s the cannonball venture. Seemed each time I clicked the descent button I fell at a different rate. Probably just my imagination from taking more than once or twice to complete. This time it took six times.
So, is it just me or did they make the games harder than when the Faire first opened?
