It’s a surreal view isn’t it? The Darkmoon Faire just doesn’t look right empty. It isn’t as though I just snapped a shot at a quiet hour or that moment where no one was going by. Look closely, there isn’t even any NPC’s. Now you’re no doubt asking yourself the same questions I was, and others who saw me online (such as Kamalia), and that is how am I even there? Well it was legit. I had hopped onto Carrera last night to grab her for the pet battle circuit for some experience and knowing she was logged out at the Faire I expected Elwynn Forest to be perfect since I could start the circuit there. Except that isn’t what happened.
When I logged in, there I was on an abandoned island. It wasn’t a character fluke as Saintvache was there as well and the same thing happened when I logged on with him. The simplest explanation I can come up with is that it’s so close to the Faire opening up once more that the servers have the location as being live, there’s just no one in it. Normally it wouldn’t be an issue because the entry portals in Elwynn and Thunder Bluff aren’t up yet. But if you’re on the other side of the portal it’s a whole different story. Needless to say with both the Tauren and the Draenei I took the opportunity to shutterbug a little bit. I’m keeping what I post to a relative minimum. Enjoy!
