...which I never was. Good thing, too, because the Darkmoon Faire is loads of fun. Drive a little Tonk around and take potshots at others, get your fortune told, even shoot yourself out of a cannon! The only thing missing is copious amounts of cheap alcohol, oh wait, they have that too! Should you be lucky enough to have finished one of the Darkmoon Card decks, now's the time to turn them in and receive your awesome-sauce epic trinket. And to top it all off, two vendors sell much sought-after items in limited supply. My Paladin, in pre-BC days, once wore the Darkmoon Necklace, and for only 5 gold to boot! There are also potions, scrolls, herbs, leather, and rare-quality gems available for purchase on a timer.
The cutthroat nature of WoW gold, however, means that someone's always camping the vendor for the blue gems. It's a shame that some people simply cannot allow the less fortunate WoW players the joy of finding a blue on the Darkmoon vendors. On several visits to the Darkmoon Faire I spotted a level 1 bank toon from one of Thrall's more prestigious guilds staking out a spot right in front of the vendor. It's pathetic that a player actually exists out there who will sit for hours before a vendor just to buy the Noble Topaz (or whatever) when it spawns. (I mean I farm for gems and ore and stuff, but at least I'm not going out of my way to screw less fortunate players out of rares when I do it.)
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, don't be a prick. Buy the blue gem if you see it--lucky you--but shit, don't camp the vendor for it. Get a virtual life, c'mon!
