    Default Hallow's End is Near!

    Hallow's End starts on Thursday and the Horseman drops a level 470 ring which should be a nice upgrade for everyone. Make sure you check it out.

    There is also a new achievement "Tricks and Treat of Pandaria"

    Nope. No one gets the mount. Only people coming back for trying for the mount who'll go: "lol. wun d mount. c u next year!!1!" and then log off.

    This buff from the daily is a must before doing your Mists dailies. 10% rep increase for 2 hours!

    I thought there was a buff attached to this event.
    Thanks for the heads up Bimble
    I'm sure it used to also only be 1 hour. 2 hours is a great chunk of time.

    That's because there's a big chunk of dailies now…

    Indeed. 2 hours is a much better buff time

    Actually you get the buff from looting the ashes so after you do that you can abandon the quest and pick it up again later for another 2 hour buff. Effectively you can have this buff permanently.

    It actually looks like you do not need the quest. I handed the quest in on my hunter and returned later as the buff had run out. I was able to throw another torch and loot the ashes. Not sure if this is the way it should work, but it did. I'll try and test it out again to confirm.

    Hallow's End will finish soon, so I thought I'd run one of my alts around to get the buckets and see how much xp he would get.
    Here are the results :

    Vanilla - 1,870,330xp - 49 buckets
    Outland - 572,550xp - 15 buckets
    Northrend - 916,080xp - 24 buckets
    Cata - 496,210xp - 13 buckets

    Total = 3,855,170 = 101 Buckets

    I may have missed some buckets, so there may be a few more about the place.
    This is at level 85, with the 10% xp/rep buff, and each bucket gave 38,170xp.
    This gives almost 30% of a level at 85.

    Takes about 4 hours in total. But I did it in the background while catching up on other stuff.
