Hallow’s End is here, my favorite event!
I started my first character during Hallow’s End 2007. My dear tauren warrior Syrcorax. I didn’t really know what Hallow’s End was back then and it was before all the achievements etc. But I had a lot of fun leveling him with a pumpkin on my head and trick or treating the innkeepers.
I also remember I met a guy with the pumpkin pet which was very rare back then and the headless horseman’s helm. I don’t remember any mount or the sword.
But the year after, I got the pet, sword and helm on my warrior. I never saw the mount drop. But I had seen other players with it, maybe three. And last year I didn’t see the mount drop either, and that was the year I farmed it on one char and people helped me summon it, not once.
This year we get the mount in the bag and can only get it once a day, like with Brewfest, and I’ve seen many people with the mount so maybe the drop rate increased. Hope I finally can get it on some char, been waiting for it so long.. There are enough of lucky bastards out there who get it on all their chars and on first day, twice in a row, even my bf got two yesterday on his alts. When is it my turn? Not sure if I want it as much as before, it’s not rare anymore, that was the fun thing about it, now it’s just a mount..
Here in Denmark we don’t celebrate Halloween, I think.. I know some people do in Norway, where I’m from, they have parties and decorate their houses, and the kids go trick or treat. I’m used to go “julebukk” similar to trick or treat on new years eve, when I was a kid. We wear costumes and go from door to door, ring their doorbells and sing a song, then we get candy. No tricks.
I wish I was going to a Halloween party cause I love to dress up in costumes, not to old for it yet, might never be. But as there is no party here I’ll just stay home and dress up my characters for Kirina at Kirina’s Closet‘s Hallow’s End costume contest.
EDIT: Yey, got the mount! On my main! :D Finally!
