This is the specific treasure chest that spawns every three hours, starting at midnight during the new Darkmoon Faire, at the Deathmatch Pavilion.
This chest will spawn daily at 12:00am, 3:00am, 6:00am, 9:00am, 12:00pm, 3:00pm, 6:00pm, and 9:00pm while the Darkmoon Faire is active. However, even when no chest is spawned, you can still enter the area for Free-For-All PVP, similar to Gurubashi Arena or the Dire Maul Arena of old.
Don't mess around in the arena right before the event is about to start. Every time you die you'll have to wait longer to resurrect (this is true outside this event too). The event will start and you'll die once and not be able to res and get back in for 45 seconds or more.
Try to die near the gate, because you have to res from the outside and it takes longer if you have to run around the back of the arena as a ghost.
per Darkmoon Faire to get this prize.
The chest appears at 3 hour intervals: 3am, 6am, 9am, 12pm, etc.
It won't be accessible either Sunday at midnight, when the Faire arrives or leaves.
Do not bother to wait around in the ring before the chest appears, you will be teleported out to the entrance when it starts, to provide a fairer chance to everyone.
If you manage to loot this chest and get the
, you will also receive the following:
x 5 (
, roughly. Exact amount may vary.
Remember that realm events have standard times now based on PST. So if you are on a central time zone server, you're going to want to arrive at 2 am instead of midnight, and so on.
The chest took around 6 minutes to spawn after the event was announced at noon server time. I was alone at the time, so I don't know if how many people are there has any effect on the timer, but I doubt it.
I can't remember who said it, but the chest can be loot by multiple players with a simple trick : leave something, anything, in it (preferably a random potion) (also it means to disable the "autoloot" function).
The first player looting will have gold, tickets, the tricket and potions in it. If they leave 1 item, a potion, then another player can loot the chest, and find gold, tickets, the tricket and potions in it, like if nothing happened before.
This can be done for 5 minutes, as the chest will despawn 5 minutes after the first player has looted it.
Another trick, if the faire is busy on your realms, try changing time, be in another phase, like classic or BC. The chest pops independantly in different times.
I've tried with a friend who was in present and I was in classic, present was busy so we phased in my time, leave 1 item in the chest, and we both got all we needed ! Then my alts have looted it, just works fine ! ^^
