You do know it's the same mechanic as the Gurubashi Arena Master achievement right?
So, apparently, I was incredibly wrong lol; if you have a server that has midnight before 12am PST, the faire is up early, so you can get some extra tickets the first night.
Apparently the achievements for turning in artifacts got reset at least for some people. I turned it about half of them on my alt and currently her achievements are completely fresh with no credit given for any artifacts I turned in last month. Also, some of the artifact quests didn't reset since last month's faire: I cannot start quests for two of the pvp artifacts this month.
haven't read through all the comments, but the rewards for the profession quests are not right: it says 2 prize tickets for all. It should be 3 for the secondary profs and 4 for the primary.I actually calculated my prognosis based on this guid wrong, but it was a pleasant surprise ;-).
