I miss having neutral cities. You know what a pain in the rumpus it is to track down every race of the opposite faction?! I found 3 when I was dousing their poorly constructed Wickerman, another in Brill blithely doing quests, a Blood Elf in the Ghostlands (where you still have to putter around on your ground mount), and a Tauren… well, in the middle of Orgrimmar. I would have lived too if that pesky Death Knight hadn’t spotted me.
I just love Hallow’s End, which I don’t find that surprising since I always loved Halloween as a kid. I mean, what kid doesn’t want to be a pumpkin, or a ghost, or a swashbuckling bucaneer? It is awesome. What does surprise me is that I’m actually pursuing the achievements. I’ve done Hallow’s End on a few of my characters, and I promised myself I wouldn’t get all caught up in the achievement game on Terri, yet here I am, happily thrusting my hand into buckets of candy, achieving a sparkling smile and puking my guts out for eating that one. last. candy. The whole experience leaves me wanting to work on some of the other achievements that I’ve completed over the years, on a bevy of characters and in a number of different locales. Could it really be oh so bad to stop being an alt, and for once, maybe have a main?
And just a friendly reminder, if a town has an inn, it probably has a candy bucket. Don’t believe that skimpy achievement list! If you don’t want to explore, just check out Angelya’s list of all the candy buckets.
What’s your favorite in-game event? If you’re not already an achievement junkie, is there some special achieve that you just must have?
Bonus question: Why is there always that one dps who can’t beat out the healer? I’m not a disc priest son, I’m a tree.
So, I don’t care if its a mockery — I love Hallowee…. *cough, cough* Hallow’s End in WoW.
Husband Turned Into Effeminate Pirate Gnome… Check
The Fight for the Headless Horseman’s… Head?
And the costumes… O.M.G. /girlish glee
And for those altoholics attempting to finish their achievements for the season, be sure to check out Tis the Season. It’s a pretty nifty addon that tracks how long until your next candy grab is available across your characters. How nifty is that?
Happy Trick or Treating!
