The Darkmoon Faire is back in town once again, running from January 6 until January 12! During this time you can get a 10% experience and reputation buff, which is great for unlocking the Allied Races.

Starting with Patch 8.1, the Profession Quests now also award 5 skill points in the latest rank of a profession which can help you unlock achievements such as Working in Zandalar or Working in Kul Tiras.

Check out our Darkmoon Faire World Event Guide for a full list of rewards you can get during this event, including mounts, pets, toys, transmog and achievements!

In about 2 weeks a number of Feats of Strength Achievements from Raids, Dungeons and PvP will become unavailable. We have made a list of these time-limited achievements, as well as created a guide for all the Obtainable Feats of Strength in the game!

The Blood-Soaked Tome of Dark Whispers which allows Hunters to tame Blood Beasts has been found!

To get the Blood-Soaked Tome of Dark Whispers you have to defeat Zul on Normal, Heroic or Mythic difficulty!

Note that the previous method to obtain the tome has been hotfixed and no longer works. Initially, discord user Darethius#8990 has obtained the tome one week ago accidentally by hearthing during the Zul encounter in Uldir on Heroic difficulty. This was unintended and was quickly fixed by the devs. As stated above, to get the tome you now have to kill Zul on Normal, Heroic or Mythic difficulty!

How to Tame Crawgs and Blood Ticks

After using the tome you will be able to tame various Crawgs and Blood Ticks that can be found throughout Zuldazar and Nazmir. For a full list of tameable Crawgs and Blood Ticks, possible colors and spawn points check out the guide for Blood Beasts over at Petopia.
