Changes are coming to the Darkmoon Faire schedule in Cataclysm Classic, similar to what we’ve seen in Season of Discovery: the Faire will now be available every two weeks instead of once every month. That means you’ll be able to visit the Darkmoon Faire again this weekend. So if you’ve been holding onto some Darkmoon Cards, you’ll soon have your chance to turn them in for your best-in-slot trinket. The increased frequency is a particularly welcome change given the sped-up pace of the expansion.

The Valor Point cap will also see some changes with the weekly reset tomorrow. Instead of a weekly cap, this currency will now have a rolling seasonal cap more akin to Conquest Points. So you will be able to catch up now if you have missed a week previously. The weekly cap on Valor Points earned through the Random Dungeon Finder has also been removed, so you can now earn all the way up to your seasonal cap through that method.

The following changes will be made to the Darkmoon Faire schedule and the Valor Points cap in Cataclysm Classic:

Darkmoon Faire

  • Starting this weekend, Darkmoon Faire will become available every two weeks, instead of once a month.

Valor Points

  • With regional realm restarts this week, Valor Points will behave like Conquest and the current weekly cap will be replaced with a rolling seasonal cap. If you’ve missed any Valor Points in previous weeks since Cataclysm Classic launched, you’ll now be able to catch up from those weeks.
  • There is no longer a cap to the number of times you may earn Valor Points from Random Dungeon Finder each week, up to your normal Valor Points cap.
