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

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.
    Right, an achievement based on luck feels like you acocmplished something.

    Finally they made the achievement possible for people who do not bot (login and talk to innkeeper every hour), thank god.

    It was awfully nice of them to involve Gilneans for the Alliance, though it doesn't really forgive them for dropping their story like a hot rock after the Worgen head for Darnassus.

    The Feline Familiar follows you on your flying mount on a little broom, in case you guys haven't discovered that on your own yet

    Yes. Just like last year.

    Back to the OP, I want to know what the hell these murloc and ogre female masks are all about.
    Alot of people on this forum like to throw the "QQ" argument around I see. There's a difference between posting your opinion and whining about something. I merely stated that I liked the old system better.

    I have a concern about the tricky treats.As it is now I have completed everything but the outland candy buckets, and i am sitting at 170 tricky treats, giving me enough for the feline familiar, but nowhere near the little wickerman after that.

    Since the dailies only give 2 or 3 treats each day, I wonder if it's even possible to get those 300 treats needed for it, for as it looks now, I won't be able to get both

    Hey all!Has the Tricky Tricks been fixed now? Been hearing that they are disappearing upon logging off I'm scared to start collecting them to only lose them.

    It looks like every innkeeper has a candy bucket nearby, not just the ones listed in the achievements. Going by Wowhead, Horde has 124 Innkeepers (alliance has 125). Each bucket gives 2 or 3 treats so it shouldn't be too hard (just time consuming) to get enough for both.

    Not a pet collector but both of those are exceptionally good and i think are going to be got on most of my characters (even though it will be rather dull). Was SOOO bothered about the cat until someone mentioned it follows you on a broom while flying which is about the sweetest thing ever

    So you're telling me that if you bought a lottery ticket every single day and after 22 years you finally won...you wouldn't feel like you accomplished anything? That your diligence finally paid off? And for those who feel 'screw that no lifer who logged in every hour'....i think i'll punch the guy in front of me who can afford to blow $10 on lottery tickets when i can only have one, since it isn't fair.

    Could you elaborate on this? I see lots of people commenting in various places that there are "extra candy buckets" but I have yet to find a single one horde side.

    They should give out some more free 7 day play time things for these kind of events. would make it interesting for veterans to come back to the game and try em.
