Heroic Darkmoon?

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.

Attempt No. 6

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?

    I’ve done the cannonball every month and every time with different results. I find the exact right time to release and the next time it gets me throw out to sea. This one costs me lots of tickets.

    The whack-a-mole one thankfully stays the same, it’s my only possible one ticket game!

      Sounds like I’m not alone then. If our perception is accurate, I have no beef with it to be honest. It’s carny games…you know they’re rigged. lol

        Lol! I feel better, I should have realized those darn carnies rig everything!

    I always need two tokens for the shooting game. I usually need two tokens, but sometimes manage to do it on just one, for whack-a-gnoll and tonks. I only need one token for the ring toss. The cannon, though? That’s a toss up. Sometimes, I nail it perfectly in one shot. More often, though, it takes me three or even four tries to collect five points.

    When the new Darkmoon Faire first came out, I hadn’t updated DBM for patch 4.3. I didn’t do that until after we’d killed Deathwing, in fact. When I did update DBM, finally, I found that it has timers for all of the carnival games, and watching the wings timer makes the cannon shot a lot easier. It feels kind of like cheating, actually, to just watch the timer.

      Not to be (at all) snarky, but to me that just seems…well, lazy (or as you put it, cheating). I mean, there’s a difference between a carny game and a raid boss. lol
