Hallow's End 2011 Updates and Changes
Hallow's End is going live today and the event received a couple of interesting upgrades ...


Masks are now sold by vendors
The masks required for A Mask for All Occasions are now sold by a vendor, it will obviously make the achievement considerably easier now that all you need to get a mask is 2 x Tricky Treat



Headless Horseman Loot
Like every year, the Headless Horseman is getting upgraded cataclysm-level loot!

Feline Familiar, Creepy Crate and Little Wickerman
The new Feline Familiar companion pet and Little Wickerman are available from vendors for 150 x Tricky Treat each!

It also seems that a new quest chain is available in Stormwind/Orgrimmar Inns, completing it will reward you with a nice Creepy Crate!

    Weird, you checked outside SW? (assuming your alliance if your horde I can only assume outside orgrimmar?) right outside the gates, there are NPC's and vendors and a huge burning wickerman.

    Or, you know, the fact that the expertise is useless to Hunters as well.

    Yay moar pets! 2 of them! Getting closer to my celestial dragon every day

    I dunno. I'm kinda sad to see the masks go away from the trick or treating. You didn't need that one for the meta one, why change it?

    The crate will put me at 150 pets, so that alone makes me happy. The cat is just an added bonus.

    Also, I got a couple toons who could use the helm, and the rings...not sure(most of my guys have 2 365 rings, so most of these are sidegrades more than upgrades, though my lesser played spriest can probably get most caster rings and have them be upgrades). And my mount collector would love the mount, so he'll be running it daily till he gets it or the event ends.

    Not only that, dual-wielding is awful for hunters right now. The +130 agi enchant for 2H weapons has no 1H equivalent.

    The masks were added TWO YEARS AGO when the Worgen and Goblin masks were added on accident. They were added as a failed attempt to cover up the accidental leakage of the new cataclysm races.

    Is everything but the HH mount from currency now? Also it seems like a waste to buy a temporary broom mount... Does any of the stuff drop from HH chest anymore?

    Why is that? Hallow's End was celebrated by the Alliance long before the Forsaken turned it into their anti-Scourge thing...

    Exactly the same feeling :/ Set an alarm for hourly trick-or-treating just so I wouldn't miss a cd, was down to one single mask for a whole year, and got it 3 hours before the event was over. In before flaming, but since it's not part of the meta achievement, I kinda wish they would leave at least *some* of the "chance" holiday achievements as is. I don't see the harm in it either as there is no perk or reward to completing them. Oh well...

    It's UC for Horde And I think there is a misunderstand with regions. It's out in Europe, but not yet in Americas.

    lol, ofcourse you don't see the harm in it because you already got it! It's a good thing that all RNG achievements that are tied to holiday events are now gone.
