Darkmoon Underwater Cavern

In the southern part of Darkmoon Island you may be surprised to find an underwater cavern, located just beneath a shipwreck that acts as a visual landmark to the cavern entrance. I first found out about this otherwise hidden area after seeing it on Pando’s site.

She also mentioned the cave on the Island where I recently wrote about the Darkmoon Rabbit in the upcoming Mists of Pandaria, I was excited to have the opportunity to go on another exploration mission; especially since the Faire is up for another few days.

Darkmoon Cavern

The Cavern Entrance may be found in The Great Sea at the co-ordinates: 74.34.

Here’s the easiest way to get there:

Once on the Island, be sure to hit a sharp left just as you’re about to head down the hill.

Darkmoon Cavern path down

After a few seconds, you’ll come to a path zigzagging down towards the sea.

This is where my Poseidus mount and underwater ring came in handy :)

Darkmoon Cavern entrance

Once you reach the entrance, you’ll hit fatigue for a bit but don’t worry as it dissipates the further you move inside the cavern entrance.

Just have a look at what you’ll find inside…

I thought I’d do a spot of fishing but didn’t get anything out of the ordinary. Although I’ve read that players have been pretty lucky fishing up the Sea Pony here so why not try your luck if you haven’t managed to do so yet?

After that I had a closer look at my surroundings and found it to be a visually stunning place.

On your way back out, head towards 61, 22 to find the same path leading back up to the Faire.

It makes me wonder what’s in store for this spot as there’s lots of room to add some cool things to the Faire and surrounding areas. Only time will tell…

Adventures of Cymre Jones

It’s been a couple of months since I had my wild adventure in the Dawning Woods Catacombs. From the beginning, I had a few close calls with a Writhing Terror and some nasty looking rats but with my trusty creepy crate in tow, they were no match. Little did I know that I would be walking into a den of ghouls. Once I was spotted by a particularly disease-riddled ghoul, I made a hasty retreat but ended up hiding out, (err I mean) waiting in a secluded corner for a good opportunity to make my escape.

Replay my adventure below:

What will I discover today?

I sense something is close

It doesn't appear to be too friendly

Luckily they are not too fond of fire

Creepy Crate to the rescue

Trusty Crate 2, Rats 0

Dag nabbit , it's a dead end!

It appears I've been spotted

I need to make a run for it

They're gaining on me

I think I can outrun them

I'll just wait here a while...

It was sometime later Cymre was seen safe and sound back to the hustle and bustle of the big City.

Hallow’s End Contests

Pretty early on I had the idea to do a Hallow’s End costume contest. My original idea was to do a fencing costume after looking through the AH and finding what was on offer. However, after finding some pants and top for the uniform I realised I wouldn’t be able to wield a sword so was forced to scrap that idea. Over the years I have managed to accumulate numerous outfits from past world events, dungeons and made items. But I still wanted to do something a little different, so I decided to do an archaeology outfit; like Harrison Jones (otherwise known as Indiana Jones played by Harrison Ford).

Archaeology Outfit - First attempt

Archaeology Outfit – First try

For my first attempt, I was quite pleased as I was going for a more sexy, female version of an archaeology outfit. However the first comment I received stated that I looked more like a zombie from the Antiseptic-Soaked Dressing. Looking at the shirt there may be a point. That led me to try the look again after doing some more research. After spending a week trying to farm the Foreman Vest, this proved more difficult than I had anticipated. So here is my second attempt with one of my two backup vests ;P

Oh and I also entered the contest offered by Kirina’s Closet. Apparently this is the third one she’s hosted but the first I’ve entered. I’m pleased to say that my entry won me Waddell’s Honorable Mention. Have a look at some of her entries; they are quite impressive. I personally like the Spartan, Spiderman and Elektra screenies.
