Nah, it was earlier. I checked the in-game calendar because I thought I'd already missed it. Noticed there was still a couple of days left, so I started looking for one of the NPC guys that give the intro quest.
There was a noteworthy lack of such NPC guys, though.
I had this with some of my characters. The NPCs were there but no !
It didn't seem to relate to level or anything else. Certainly one of the characters who got no quest had no chance of ever having done the DMF before.
The teleport was available to all though.
And Maz, they were in bright green with pointy hats and labelled "Mystic Darkmoon Mage" or somesuch. They were in IF as well as two in SW. You must have had your shades on or something
More likely someone parked their dragon on one "for the lolz"
It was nice that the prices scaled with level so my lowbies got ported and bought tokens for a lot less than the 85s.
I'm afraid I got greedy with my last character there and thought "The next skillups are cheap - I'll pop back to SW and do them then use the +5 on the expensive bit" And of course the clock struck midnight and the fair closed just as I landed in Goldshire
I managed a few Sea Ponies until I came to my senses and realised that I don't collect pets.
The cannon nearly killed my 85 rogue from two launches without wings. I decided that the laptop was lagging and that had better wait till I got home.
The games were a bit bleh but ok I suppose if you like that sort of thing. I did like the atmosphere and the classic Blizz humour. All in all I'd say well done.
And my Engineer will be first in the queue when it returns
