Darkmoon Faire Has the Hind Teat

It is the first week of the month, time for Darkmoon Faire! One of the longest running world events in World of Warcraft, and now that it has been relocated to its own island and expanded to be the kind of event it always should have been, I really make a point to spend some time on the island each month. This is mostly for the reason that I can get five points for each in-game profession without having to make something with rare or impossible to find materials in-game. It is fun, and you get payback for spending time at the faire. Win-win.

Not in this expansion. I went into the Darkmoon Faire for the first time in Battle for Azeroth (BfA) and the profession quests don’t give 5 points anymore. Well, Archeology still gives 5 points, the rest of the professions do not. The fact that Archeology is the only profession that still shows a total points level (950) for the profession as a whole, when all the other professions show expansion points for each expansion of the game separately, is illustrative of the oversight that was part of skill-ups in BfA.

As is typical for Blizzard and World of Warcraft, professions end up working differently based on the different plans of the programmers for the different professions. It would be nice if the left hand told the right hand what it was doing, Blizzard. Can we get this fixed? Eventually?

Tab target seems to work for the first time ever, so I don’t want to divert y’alls attention from the important things, like making sure fight mechanics work properly. It would be nice though if professions felt like they were finished products.

Editor’s note. This glitch was fixed the next month, and tab target still worked after that patch. So, they appear to be fixing things and not breaking things at the same time. Fingers crossed that this trend continues.
