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!

    No Panda mask though....

    People moaning about the sword? It's ALWAYS been an agility 1 hander. All blizz do is scale the stats on items based on ilvl each year. You really should know better by now! While I'm here, anyone else stuck on "Missing Heirlooms" quest? I'm in the cabin but now what?!

    Fuck no, it was just stupid RNG and wasnt even accounted in the meta who cares, difficult was shendralar THAT was difficult.

    Those masks cost five treats, and come in stacks of 5, so they seem to have nothing to do with playable races. BUUUUT, Murlocs and Ogres in FEMALE form? Would this be a sign that Blizzard will finally make those models? Although I always thought that both genders of murlocs looked the same in the outside.

    This is insanely off-topic, but if the next expansion follows the pattern, it will be a new hero class, not a new race.

    Yeah, because the Night Elves love for Naga and The Vrykul love for Humans are well known. Hell, Trolls love for Naga and Murloc too... Yeah, they totally fit the factions.
    Of all those races only Ogre have a cut in Horde.

    So will we get to see the story unfold between Undead and Worgen or is that scrapped? Is it just HH farming and thats it?

    They took it off the meta because it was stupid difficult to get, especially when the first year it mattered they didn't have the masks drop in the daily bags from the HH, and the years after the event always started off not working properly and the masks still didn't appear until a week into it.

    Indeed, the halloween event in WoW is by FAR the most fun happening in WoW, no competition whatsoever.

    Hahahaha I love the fact that they're acknoledging the cataclysm leak with the masks. Even though it does make me very, very sad that we're not going to get playable murlocs in MoP .
