Gold Capped: How to get a MoP Darkmoon trinket

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Gold Capped, in which Basil "Euripides" Berntsen and Fox Van Allen aim to show you how to make money on the Auction House. Check out Basil's re-reboot of Call To Auction, and email Basil with your questions, comments, or hate mail!

The Darkmoon Faire comes to town once a month, and if you want to get one of those amazingly good darkmoon trinkets, you're going to need a fairly large pile of gold. There are a couple of ways of going about it with varying levels of cost and effort.

Interestingly, our own Fox Van Allen became a "Darkmoon Mogul" last expansion when he made his first million gold. At the time, you could simply make as many cards as you were willing to mill the ink for, and people willing to make those cards could profit in spades. There's still money to be made in this, however don't walk in with your eyes closed -- the system has changed, and there's more risk now than ever.

Getting one the hard way

Getting a deck for yourself can be expensive and simple, or cheap and complicated. You basically have two choices: hustle for cards to make your own deck, or buy a finished deck or trinket.

Mists Darkmoon Card Trinkets, and how to get them

Darkmoon Card Trinkets, and how to get them
A new expansion brings with it a new set of Darkmoon Cards. The current batch are item level 476, unique-equipped, bind-on-equip, and created in a very similar fashion to previous Darkmoon Cards.

The cards themselves, of which there are 32, are created by Inscription from Darkmoon Card of Mists, which is available from level 600 and requires Scroll of Wisdom. This has a daily cooldown, severely limiting the number of cards which can be made. [Corrected, thanks to commenters. Original post was written based on database relics]

The cards are bind on equip just like before, so can be traded and sold as previously. The cards are created randomly, and therefore unless you're very lucky, some trading will be necessary. As previously, there are four decks, Tiger, Ox, Serpent and Crane. Once you have all eight cards, the Ace through the Eight, right-click them to combine into the Deck.

These decks then allow you to start a quest, which asks that you hand in the deck at the Darkmoon Faire. All steps up to this point can be carried out at any time, but the quest hand-in can only be completed when the Darkmoon Faire is in town.

Handing in the four decks awards four different cards, with the exception of the Tiger Deck, which awards two. The trinkets and decks are as follows:
As previously, these cards are bind-on-equip, so can be sold. When completing the Tiger Deck quest, players can choose between the two relics trinkets. These trinkets are unique equipped, and players can't equip more than one Darkmoon Card trinket.

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.
