Patch 5.1 PTR: Blizzard reserves the final Darkmoon word

Patch 51 PTR Darkmoon trinkets nerfed
With this morning's minor PTR patch, a few changes were datamined, most notably to the trinkets earned from the Darkmoon Faire. Another small addition revealed itself, an achievement associated with the Wrathion quest chain called A Test of Valor.

The Darkmoon Faire trinkets were said to have seen the stat levels of their procs altered considerably, indicating that they had all been nerfed down to a default value of 2,682 from their current positions.

But datamining isn't always accurate. Lead Systems Designer Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street has tweeted in the past about this, and reiterated his message today with this missive:

Blizzard Blue Daxxarri then added a similar message to the US forums:

No! Bad! Stop pointing to data-mined content as fact. The change that got picked up was actually an adjustment to Darkmoon Card trinkets for Challenge Mode stat scaling.

While it's important that the Darkmoon trinkets weren't nerfed, the big message here is that datamined content is not always fact. Yes, dataminers get a lot right, but always take their information with a pinch of salt.

Mists of Pandaria is here! The level cap has been raised to 90, many players have returned to Azeroth, and pet battles are taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out for all of the latest news, and check out our comprehensive guide to Mists of Pandaria for everything you'll ever need to know.

Darkmoon Faire Decks: An overview

Professor Paleo himself
As I've mentioned before, The Darkmoon Faire is currently in Terrokar Forest, just outside Shattrath City, so if you have decks to turn in or need to refill your private stock of Darkmoon Special Reserve, now's the time to get on it. But if you're still a little bit taken aback by the prospect of gathering all those cards, or wondering if the trinket at the end will really be worth it, we'd like to help you out.

In this post, we'll be looking at both the old and new decks and listing some pros and cons of each deck so you can figure out if you want to spend the next month tracking down cards before the Faire shows up in Elwynn Forest in March, or even if you just want to blow your epic flying mount fund on getting a deck before it leaves for the month.

We'll start in on everything after the jump.
