    What about changes to the Alliance quest chain that involved cleaning up Southshore? Are we finally going to fight back?!

    LOL at everyone who thinks the mask achieve was owed to them because they've been unlucky. I myself had NOT gotten it yet, but you know what? I was looking forward to getting it the hard way and the sense of...lucky or not...ACHIEVEMENT. They are called achievement points guys...some take alot more skill than others...but straight buying them is stupid. Oh noes, you can't have every achievement point available at this moment so you might die. And those who use the 'i have a life and career', great, then don't act like you need the achievements to fulfill it. It's not an absolutely horrible thing that those who have a bit more time to spend can get a thing or two...and hell it didn't even have a reward. Your money and successful career should make up for the lack of 10 achievement points right? When a boss refuses to drop that piece of loot you really want, or you don't have time to raid...should blizzard eventually just sell it to you, because you 'have a life and career'? It's guys like you who stand on the pedestal and tote how much RL>WoW yet incessantly whine to blizzard that you can't have everything the game has to offer. Make up your mind.

    People still participate in the events for fun AND to get rewards. Just like it has always been. Its just you who are bored with the game.

The only difference is the theme and looks.

    I liked it better when every event was unique. You had the crazy skeleton costumes during Hallow's End back in Classic. (Those big skeleton warriors with the horned helmet) It was awesome to run around like one of those, but they changed it to the noggenfogger skeleton during TBC. People used to participate in the events simply for fun. Now I believe everyone does them for the free epics and rewards.

    I liked it better when everything wasn't QQ.

    Back to the OP, I want to know what the hell these murloc and ogre female masks are all about.

I don't see the harm in it either as there is no perk or reward to completing them. Oh well...
    so you wasted an entire week( bad sleep,no work/study, no going out etc) and do you think blizzard should keep this achievement for people like you?

    Not 100% sure if this question has already been asked or not, but is there a definite confirmation that the helm only drops from the loot filled pumpkin?

    I think the boss drops rings only

    I have gotten two of them out of the loot pumpkins on different characters, and all I've seen the Horseman drop are the rings. According to Wowhead, that's to be expected.
