The subject of this article or section is part of Darkmoon Faire, an ongoing event that lasts one week. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next month.

Darkmoon Cards are cards that can be collected and compiled into a Deck, which can then be turned in to the Darkmoon Faire for the reward of an item and Darkmoon Faire reputation. Higher-level decks, which are of most interest to players, award an epic trinket. Lower-level decks award a lower level uncommon or rare item, and a more modest amount of reputation. Neither the individual cards nor the decks are bind on pickup, and a character of any level can create a deck, though the reward will have level requirements.

Higher-level decks and trinkets

Each higher-level deck consists of an Ace and seven sequentially numbered cards, from two to eight. As of Patch 3.0.2, which added inscription, all of these cards may be created by scribes. In fact, the cards for level 80 decks may only be obtained this way. For level 60 and 70 decks, the cards numbered 2-4 may also drop from mobs outside instances and cards numbered 5-8 drop from elite mobs inside instances. The Aces for the level 70 decks can drop from any boss from a level 70 or Heroic instance, while the Aces for the level 60 decks drop from specific bosses:

Once a deck is assembled, it offers a quest to turn the deck in to Neutral Professor Thaddeus Paleo at the Darkmoon Faire for an epic trinket reward (refer to the table below) and 350 Darkmoon Faire reputation. This may only be done at times when the Darkmoon Faire is running.

Lower-level Decks

The cards which form the lesser decks are created only through inscription. As with the major decks, lesser decks are assembled from an Ace and sequential cards numbered two onwards. There are four decks. The  [Rogues Deck] consists of only three cards (Ace, Two and Three of Rogues). The  [Swords Deck] consists of four cards. The  [Mages Deck] and  [Demons Deck] consist of five cards each.

Once a deck is assembled, it offers a quest to summon a Neutral Darkmoon Fortune Teller. The deck may be turned in to the fortune teller, who awards a choice of item and 25 Darkmoon Faire reputation. This turn-in may done at any time and location, even when the Darkmoon Faire is not running.
