I’m not going to lie — I have absolutely no idea what’s going on in these shorts. I mean, I get the general gist of it. They’re having Halloween hijinks and...

Hallow’s End comes with new tricks and treats this year Hallow’s End has returned, and while the event follows the same basic format — collect Tricky Treats at inns around the world, fight the Headless Horseman for his probably non-existent mount drop (if my luck has anything to say about it) — there are a few additions this year. A Grommash costume for 200 Tricky Treats. Daily Quest Under...

By and large, the event is the same as it ever was: Bash the Headless Horseman until loot falls out and Trick or Treat around the world for some free XP. However, the Headless Horseman drops baseline item level 835 rings and there’s a brand new (group)...

The hidden ghosts of World of Warcraft Azeroth, for all its fantastical locations and epic adventurers, is still a very dangerous world. Battles have been fought all over and have claimed many lives, catastrophes have struck unsuspecting locations, and sometimes fate was simply not on someone’s side. In most cases, the spirits of those lost are able to move on; in some,...
