Achievements in World of Warcraft are both a record of your accomplishments and a way to look forward to memorable moments that await you. Every Achievement tells a part of your story, and a few come with rewards such as pets, titles, and even mounts. You can see why so many people love to go Achievement hunting.
The Darkmoon Faire
Starting on May 1, the Darkmoon Faire is back in town, and there’s a lot to see and do and play and eat and drink out there. There are replica transmogrification pieces of gear, and mounts, and pets, and toys, and most importantly – there are Achievements galore! Here’s a rundown of a few of the more obtainable Faire Achievements that have some interesting rewards for you.
Triumphant Turtle Tossing
First up, it’s time to take your ring-tossing game to the next level! The precious Darkmoon Ring-Flinger toy is waiting for you if you can just score 10 rings out of 10 while that terrible terrapin tears around in front of you.
You can do it! And just think about how much fun you’ll have with this amazing toy. It flings rings everywhere!
If there’s one thing that gnolls are good for, it’s being whacked over the head. In the Darkmoon Faire’s whack-a-gnoll game, you’ll want to go for broke and notch a score of 45 points to earn the That’s Whack achievement. This one might take a bit of luck in addition to practice, as it’s all about maximizing your effort by going for the “Hogger”-type gnolls.
Your reward for this Achievement is the wonderful Hogs companion pet. That’s right: take home your very own mini-Hogger today!
The main attraction at the Darkmoon Faire is surely the timed racing event that starts down at the docks. Once you’ve completed the introductory training races, you can choose from different racing mounts – each with their own set of boosts and jumps – and start taking on The Real Race.
And when you complete The Real Race in fewer than 11 tolls on the Rocketeer mount, you’re rewarded with one of our favorite toys in the game!
Your reward is the Everlasting Darkmoon Firework, and it gives you the ability to send up a beautiful Faire-colored burst of colors every three minutes. Your days of carrying fireworks around in your bags are over!
