Hello and welcome to the Gold Queen’s Darkmoon Faire Guide part one.

(please note, this guide was written in 2011 and is out of date. New guide coming soon!)

The DMF is a very under-used event in the gold-makers calender but can also be one of the most profitable. The Darkmoon Faire is held for a week, every month, on the first week. It takes 3 days to set up then opens on the Monday and stays for a week.  The location changes every month

You can visit a Darkmoon Faire in any location, whatever your allegiance, all factions start as neutral with the npcs.  Be careful if you are on a PVP server and you travel to a location deep inside enemy country.
The next Darkmoon Faire is happening in Shattrath on 6th February 2011.  You can find the dates of the next DMFs in your in-game calender.  [ Incidentally, meet my main auctioneer character.  He’s a dwarf who thinks he’s a blood elf! ]
The next Darkmoon Faire is going to be the most important in Cataclysm because it will be the peak time for turning DMF cards into decks and trinkets which are the best pre-raid trinkets for a lot of players. By next month there will be a lot more settled guilds and raiding will have taken off to such an extent that the value of the cards will be coming back down.
