It's Like Christmas For Dead People... Well Undead People Anyway.

Hallow's End is here and I've been pretty busy trying to get those achievements checked off the list. Sadly I won't be able to get the "Hallowed" title because the new characters my wife and I are playing are only level 52 at the moment. We can't exactly spend our days farming the Headless Horseman. That little disappointment aside I've been having a lot of fun.

The best part so far has been the candy buckets. Funeral and Rytes started off at level 48 and after getting all the buckets in The Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor we hit level 52. This recruit a friend bonus xp is awesome, giving us between 9300 and 10500xp for each one we did. We've been doing the dailies but haven't had a chance to check out the wickerman or do the rotten egg quest yet. We'll probably get to it tonight.

It's pretty cool running around all over the world and seeing the decorations and people populating areas that are usually ghost towns. It's a pretty massive celebration for what is essentially the Forsaken independence day, which makes me wonder why any race of Alliance would celebrate it. Heck, it doesn't even seem like the rest of the Horde would, but the Alliance? Yeah sure, I know it's your traditional "harvest festival" but let's be serious... jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, the trouble coming out of Scarlet Monastery... it's all about us Forsaken baby. Remember to thank us the next time you're gobbling up some treats.

I think this has been my favorite Event yet. I was on another toon and my boyfriend's account for the Christmas one last year and that was fun but I wasn't high enough to do anything but open presents. This year I've been more involved.

Of course, having the Zombie World Event is only making this Hallow's End that much better. Perfect timing Blizz! Perfect timing!
