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

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

    Add to that the fact that one-handed weapons SUCK for hunters regardless. A pair of one-handers has a lot fewer stats than a similar level twohanded weapon, on top of that there is no enchant for one-handers that even remotely compares to 130 agility for two-handers.

    The agility sword from the event IS only suitable for combat rogues. Even if a hunter is lucky enough to get two of them to drop and the expertise was changed into a useful stat, any 346 polearm or staff with agility will be significantly better.

    Great, love the plate helmet. It will look great in my priest/mage/warlocks bag alongside the bottle agi daggers from Brewfest.

    I was lucky enough to get the Horseman's Mount on 4 of my 6 80's last year (one being my main ) and I even got one for my friend who was out of town and without a computer during Hallow's End. RNG was my friend, hoping to get the mount this year on my newly leveled hunter.

    Shouldnt it be, WTF is a meter? Blizzard is in the U.S. and here, we use inches, feet, yards. A yard is 3 feet long which is 36 inches long.

    Meter is standart unit used in science, 1m = 100cm = 10dm, 1km = 1000m, speed of light is 300.000km per second. Rest of world moved on to mesure unit that makes sence, there are only 2 or 3 countries using old system, 1 is USA, other 2 are in Africa. Just sayin'.

    Seems there are some inkeepers in Northrend where you can still do the hour trick or treat thing .

    Well, look at it from the perspective of someone who really put in a lot of time to the mask achievement. I was missing one mask (then they added 4 new, but never mind that). I logged in every hour to "Trick or Treat" an inn keeper. I was expecting to get it this year, and I did. But so does everyone else now.

    Why, why, why, can't somethings, even simple things, require some time and effort? Geez... It saddens me, a lot.

    RNG isnt a good thing and certainly nothing to be proud over...
