Hoarders: Azeroth Edition - Bring Me The Head Of...Oh Wait

Happy Thursday hoarders! It is time for a week long overdue Hoarders post. What is this week's topic all about? Well, if you haven't guessed it by now, it's all about witches, pumpkins, and the Headless Horseman himself. That's right, this week's post is all about Hallow's End.


Hallow's End in Azeroth is that special time of year when the Headless Horseman comes out of hiding to plague us all with fire and his rhythmic rhymes. This year is no different, though this time around we have new ways of getting out Masks for all Occasions achievement, new pets and items, and actual currency to buy our missing items with (masks, that damn cloth pumpkin helm, and the Sinister Squashling). What all can you add to your collection this year? Well read on down the list and see what you're missing.



Title
The Hallowed


Mount(s)
The Horseman's Reins - This item can be found in a Loot-Filled Pumpkin, which you get for killing the Headless Horseman via the Looking For Dungeon tool once daily (.4% drop rate). Very sinister and slick looking horse model mount. It even flies!

Magic Broom - Want to scoot around on a broom like the Wicked Witch of the West? This item can be found in a Loot-Filled Pumpkin, which you get for killing the Headless Horseman via the Looking For Dungeon tool once daily, or gained from a Crudely Wrapped Gift received when you successfully put out the fires in starting zone villages, to be completed once daily. If your RNG sucks you can purchase one from Chub and Dorothy for 150 Tricky Treats but beware, this item only lasts for the duration of the Hallow's End festival. Any other ride-able broom to be found in game suffers the same, sad fate.


Currency
Tricky Treat - Collect these from Hallow's End related quests and dailies. This item can be found in a Loot-Filled Pumpkin, which you get for killing the Headless Horseman via the Looking For Dungeon tool once daily. It is also contained in a Handful of Treats. Handful of Treats is gathered from the candy buckets located in various inns around Azeroth and Outland


Pet(s)
Feline Familiar - May be purchased from Chub and Dorothy for 150 Tricky Treats. Cute little black cat pet that sports a witch's hat. It will even mount up on its own broom when you hop onto a flying mount!

Creepy Crate - This is a crate. Not any ordinary crate however, oh no. This crate is CREEPY MAN. It burps out smoke and causes little animals to mysteriously disappear. If you'd like a Creepy Crate of your own, simply start the questline with Missing Heirlooms (A)/Missing Heirlooms (H) and follow it to the end.


Gear
Hallowed Helm - Required for the achievement Sinister Calling. Often found in a Loot-Filled Pumpkin, which you get for killing the Headless Horseman via the Looking For Dungeon tool once daily (36% drop rate). It is often also contained in a Handful of Treats. Handful of Treats is gathered from the candy buckets located in various inns around Azeroth and Outland (5% drop rate). May also be found in the Crudely Wrapped Gift received when you successfully put out the fires in starting zone villages, to be completed once daily (.08% drop rate). If your RNG luck is completely dismal, you may purchase this helm from Chub and Dorothy for 150 Tricky Treats.

The Horseman's Horrific Helmet - Drops from the Loot-Filled Pumpkin, which you get for killing the Headless Horseman via the Looking For Dungeon tool once daily (3% drop rate).

Band of Ghoulish Glee - Agility ring (23%)
Seal of the Petrified Pumpkin - Strength ring (23%)
The Horseman's Signet - Hit caster ring (23%)
Wicked Witch's Ring - Spirit caster ring (23%)

Rings all drop from the Headless Horseman himself upon his defeat. It is possible to repeatedly farm him for these items. While these items are unique, you may wear The Horseman's Signet and Wicked Witch's Ring together.


Fun Items
Penny Pouch - Has a .01% chance to drop from the Headless Horseman himself according to Wowhead.com, but is often contained in a Handful of Treats. Handful of Treats is gathered from the candy buckets located in various inns around Azeroth and Outland.

Tooth Pick - Required for That Sparkling Smile. Drops from Handful of Treats, or if you have terrible RNG luck you may purchase this item from Chub and Dorothy for 2 Tricky Treats.

Weighted Jack-o'-Lantern - Needed for the achievement Check Your Head. Reward from the quests "Let the Fires Come!" and Stop the Fires! Also can be gained from a Crudely Wrapped Gift and from looting the Headless Horseman's corpse (40% drop). Can be used all year 'round. Have fun plaguing your friends with the plopping pumpkins onto their heads!


Wands
Wands needed for the achievement The Masquerade. In the event that all of the wands that are needed haven't been received through various Handful of Treats drops, they may be purchased from Darla and Stymie for 2 Tricky Treats a piece. Group up with a friend and have them zap you (or you may zap them) with the following:

Bat, Ghost, Leper Gnome, Ninja, Pirate, Random*, Skeleton, Wisp

*The "Random" wand does not need to be used to complete the achievement.


Masks
You must collect 24 different masks for the achievement A Mask for All Occasions and The Mask Task. Each mask has a random drop chance from Handful of Treats, which are gathered from the candy buckets located in various inns around Azeroth and Outland. They may also be found in a Loot-Filled Pumpkin, which you get for killing the Headless Horseman via the Looking for Dungeon tool once daily. If your RNG luck is particularly horrible for a few of the masks, you may purchase them from Farina and Spanky for 2 Tricky Treats a piece.

See A Mask for All Occasions for the complete list of masks necessary for the achievement. Yes I'm being lazy and not linking all 24 separate masks.

Buff Masks - These are new and may be purchased from Farina and Spanky for 5 Tricky Treats a piece.
Murloc Female Mask/Murloc Male Mask - Agility boost
Naga Female Mask/Naga Male Mask - Intellect boost
Ogre Female Mask/Ogre Male Mask - Stamina boost
Vrykul Female Mask/Vrykul Male Mask - Strength boost

G.N.E.R.D.S. - Once a buff food, now just something to make you look "intelligent." Sold by Farina and Spanky for 2 Tricky Treats a piece and has a random drop chance from Handful of Treats, which are gathered from the candy buckets located in various inns around Azeroth and Outland. Still required for the achievement G.N.E.R.D. Rage.

Pyroblast Cinnamon Ball - Once a buff food, now just something to make you look "hot." Sold by Farina and Spanky for 2 Tricky Treats a piece and has a random drop chance from Handful of Treats, which are gathered from the candy buckets located in various inns around Azeroth and Outland.

Soothing Spearmint Candy - Once a buff food, now just something to make you look "cool." Sold by Farina and Spanky for 2 Tricky Treats a piece and has a random drop chance from Handful of Treats, which are gathered from the candy buckets located in various inns around Azeroth and Outland.



And that is more or less all of the available goodies for this holiday folks. If you haven't started looking for that Halloween costume for your favorite character or began your journey across Azeroth in search of those oh so tricky treats, I suggest you get a move on. Hallow's End finishes up this coming Monday, October 31st. Time is getting short, so get to hoarding!

  1. I've been trying to get that mount on my paladin for three years now. Probably 150 Horseman kills thus far. My Worgen Druid kills the Horseman for the first time, gets the mount, the pet, the cloth helm, and a mask. Got four achievements at once. The mount that I so covet on my main went to my druid. It's the only actual mount my druid has.

  2. Funny enough, I'm much in the same boat. My druid actually got the mount a few days ago, though it wasn't her first run by far. I've been running the darn thing near 6 times daily this year (I've been trying for 3 or so years now as well), and I have seen a grand total of 2 mounts drop for me, one of which went to a guildy oh so many years ago now. My shaman just doesn't have the hax loot rolls or something.

    RNG is a killer man.
