Darkmoon Island is the location of the Darkmoon Faire. It is small, forested, and roughly circular. The Faire is the primary attraction on the island, although some wild animals live in the woods and water. The island is only accessible once each month, during the week of the Darkmoon Faire.
The Great Sea
Players can reach the island via the portal in the Darkmoon Faire Staging Grounds that are set up near one of their major cities:
To quickly get to the staging grounds you can pay a Darkmoon Faire Mystic Mage located in each major city to teleport you - the price is low and varies by character level.
Other than using a or other personal teleportation methods, players need only travel to the southernmost point of the island to theDarkmoon Boardwalk where a Portal Back is under a small tent. Taking the portal will take you back to the staging grounds in either Elwynn Forest or Mulgore, depending on your faction.
If you portaled to the island and immediately remembered you forgot something, you can just turn around and use the Portal Back to your faction's staging ground.
The Darkmoon Faire itself is the biggest feature of the zone, situated in the flat, south-central part of the Island and occupying nearly half of that region. The Faire borders the beach in the south, which extends around to the east and northwest until it runs into cliffs. Darkmoon Island's most prominent geographical feature is a high ridge, inaccessible in places, running along the north and east sides of the island. Portals from Elwynn Forest and Mulgore deposit players on the ridge in the north, where they can follow a path south down the ridge to the Faire. The entire interior of the island, aside from the Faire itself, is heavily forested.
