How to Get to Darkmoon Island

To reach Darkmoon Island, find a Darkmoon Faire Mystic Mage in any capital city. They offer portals to Elwynn Forest (for Alliance) or Mulgore (for Horde) and provide an introductory quest that gives you 5 Darkmoon Prize Tickets and the essential Darkmoon Adventurer's Guide. After paying for the teleport, use the portal at the old fairgrounds to transport to the new island. Ride through the woods to discover the Faire at the bottom of the hill. Enjoy the attractions and rewards!
