"Safe? When was the last time you had any REAL fun doing anything safe?" - Maxima Blastenheimer [1] (TCG Darkmoon Faire 1)

The Blastenheimer 5000 Ultra Cannon is one of the attractions of the Darkmoon Faire. The ultra cannon can blast players into the air, giving them a fun ride.


When you talk to cannoneer Maxima Blastenheimer she will explain the workings of the cannon to you.

In short: to get a launch, right-click the cannon to activate it. You will be loaded into the barrel, the cannon is aimed and off you go. During the flight you will get a Spell magic featherfallMagic Wings buff which will make you glide until you deactivate the effect.

The Target

Near the end of the flight there is a target floating in the water. For extra fun you can try to drop yourself inside that target. Right click the Wings buff icon to remove the wings and drop. On hitting the water or the ground you will get a Spell nature acid 01Touchdown! buff for one second.

Landing close to the target will give you a buff that lasts for one hour. The buff has no effect apart from showing your accomplishment. Different buffs are given depending on the distance to the center of the target:

  • Inv misc map02Poor Shot! Your latest attempt at the cannon landed you near the target area. Better luck next time!
  • Ability hunter snipershotClose! Your latest attempt at the cannon was close to the center, but not close enough.
  • Ability hunter focusedaimBullseye! Your latest attempt at the cannon was dead on!

Beware when you drop that landing in the water is usually safe (apart from possible level 6-9 mobs nearby), but dropping on land will probably kill you. Especially in Thunder Bluff a slight overshoot or undershoot will smack your face mercilessly into the ground.

Riding the wings all the way to the end will put you down relatively safely.


The cannon travels with the Darkmoon Faire and can be found nearby.


The cannon was most likely created by cannoneer Maxima Blastenheimer and named after her.

In Thunder Bluff the cannon is a nice quick transport to Bloodhoof Village.
