How to Win at Hallow's End: Achievement Guide - Happy Halloween!

Tarou's WoW Blog SQ

To get started, look at which achievements you haven't done and try to focus on them first.

The new updates to 2012 will be added soon.

First up, I just do some easy trick or treating. This is mainly for the Tricks and Treats of Azeroth achievement which you can complete by going to all the towns listed and trick or treating by clicking on the pumpkins typically inside the Inns. It'll also help you to complete several other achievements so I suggest doing it first.

  • With Tricks and Treats you don't need to do Northrend, Cataclysm, or Pandaria to complete the meta achievement for the title but they're worth doing for gathering Tricky Treats to purchase items to complete other achievements or buy fun items like pets as well as getting gold and guild rep.
  • Once you complete all the Tricks and Treats you'll have tons of items to complete the rest of the achievements and even have a very good chance of getting the Sinister Squashling pet. Hell I got six of them and I only did Northrend and Cataclysm Inns mostly. I can't even imagine if you did all the Inns possible. Needless to say, don't bother buying it from the vendor.
  • Next up, I complete the quests available just outside of Undercity or Stormwind for Alliance. You can do the dailys there first if you like and then work on the main quests. They're extremely easy and don't take long at all to do. I also found a little trick while doing "Stink Bombs Away!". Since you also need to douse the wickerman outside of Stormwind, just log out after you finish it, log back in and you'll be at a closeby graveyard, alive. Then, just fly over, douse the wickerman and hearthback to Org. Then, you can do your mint quests for Orcs and Trolls inside Org and fly over to Thunderbluff or get a port to get that one as well. Next, take the zep back to Undercity or get a port, head inside, do "Clean Up in Undercity" and grab the mint there. Finally, go outside and turn everything in. Bam, done.
  • The next thing I'm going to do is "The Savior of Hallow's End". It's super easy to do and shouldn't take you but a few minutes to complete. Towards the end of Hallow's End players start to thin out and it can be a bit more difficult to complete especially if you're on a low population server. To avoid that, try completely this achievement early on. Also, do it outside your major hub like at Razor Hill just south of Org.
  • After that, queue up for the Headless Horseman and have your luck at the Headless Horsman's Reins. You'll have a chance at it everyday so good luck. It'll also let you complete the achievement "Bring Me The Head of... Oh Wait" and help with "Sinister Calling", "Check Your Head", among others.
  • Ok, so after you get all your Tricks and Treats done along with all the quests you can start on knocking out the easy achievements like "The Masquerade". Just ask in trade to trade Hallowed Wand casts. Remember you have to be in a party for it to work. If you try doing this towards the end you may have to tip to get the wand transformations you need so doing it early on pays off.
  • Between waiting on wand cast trades, queue for a BG like Alterac Valley, Tol Barad if it's about to start, or Isle of Conquest, pop a G.N.E.R.D candy and kill 10 players. It use to be 50 which was semi-difficult but now is only 10 players so you should be able to do it without dying very often. If you die, you'll have to eat another candy. This is also a good time to complete "Check Your Head". If you're somehow short on the Jack-o'-Lanterns used to complete it, you can get them from friends or the Auction House but don't expect them to be cheap early on.
  • Once all those are done, use your left over candy to complete "Out With It". Just eat candy until you get sick. Kinda like what you would've likely done when you were 10 or if you are 10, what you plan to do this Halloween.
  • This is also a good time to use a Tooth Pick and get the "That Sparkling Smile" achievement.
  • "Sinister Calling" and "The Mask Task" should've been completed while you did the Tricks and Treats. If for some reason you had insanely bad luck with getting the Sinister Squashling and Hallowed Helm, don't sweat it. Just do the Headless Horseman everyday and the dailys and you'll either get it as a drop or have enough Tricky Treats to buy them. I wouldn't buy them though until the last day of the holiday since it's a waste unless you have all the items you want and masks already.
  • "Trick or Treat!" is another one you would've already completed so we'll skip that one and lastly you might have "A Mask for All Occasions" left to do. This one isn't part of the meta achievement so you don't need to do it but, if you really want it, I suggest waiting until the last day of the holiday when you've done all your trick or treating and quests and then use your left Tricky Treats to buy the masks you need. Make sure you buy whatever you want from the vendor before this though since I myself would rather have the Feline Familiar than complete this achievement.
  • So, that's pretty much it and you should now have a few pets, some fun items, and a shiny new title, "The Hallowed" from completely all the achievements and doing the quests. I have videos of the new pets and how to do the quest line for the Creepy Crate Pet on my YouTube channel so check those out. Grats to all and enjoy Halloween in and out of the game.
  • That's it for my "How to Win at Hallow's End" video holiday achievement guide and I hope you liked it.
