Not a lot that’s new this year, except for a new round of Candy Buckets to collect around Pandaria. It really didn’t take too long, especially if you can fly. Not to mention the easy XP for your alts, plus all that Guild rep – bonus!
Once a day, you’ll be able to kill The Headless Horseman which drops the Loot-Filled Pumpkin. The loot has been upgraded to 470 which includes the usual 4 rings, Horseman’s Horrific Helm and agility sword as well as a chance at the following novelty items. Too bad the brooms are only available for the duration of the event.
You can also purchase a Little Wickerman which doubles as a campfire, although it takes up a bag spot.
By the way, don’t forget to get the Wickerman buff for a nice XP and rep boost.
It didn’t take long before we had completed the storylines in Townlong Steppes although we slowed down with the questing once we reached 90. But since there were only two storylines to go, we set out to do them over two days.
Still one of my favourite book/movie references in WoW. The first time I saw these, I couldn’t help but take a picture of the huge swamp rodents that brought me back to one of my many memories of The Princess Bride. In fact, it was the first movie I had ever bought in VHS format.
When I heard about a great spot for farming Black Prince rep, greens, cloth and motes of harmony we headed out to this spot in the island and had a go. However, it seems the spot had been hotfixed the night before to prevent this but we did walk away with a nice achievement – albeit unexpected.
I went through a couple of quests not really reading what we were doing so after a big pull I started torching all the corpses. We ended up with a pretty huge bonfire…
This series of quests started out fun, until you had to find a more docile yak after 8 or so tries… luckily we managed to get group credit for this one :P
After one particular day of questing, we took a moment to relax as Hozen Pirates for while, well 30secs to be exact.
