We're coming to the end of two months of non-stop "holiday magic." It started with the 15th Anniversary events and ends with everything going away January 7.
We haven't really seen anything new added to the Hallow's End event in World of Warcraft's Scarlet Monastery graveyard in a very long time now.
Look forward to another year without a Big Love Rocket, because it's about to get harder to get your holiday mounts.
In the latest hotfix notes, this little item caught my eye.
For some of us, the holidays are a quiet time when we can indulge in our favorite games to our heart's content.
It's Winter Veil time in the World of Warcraft! The halls have been decked, toys wrapped, and Great Father Winter is ready to hear your Winter Veil wishes -- have you been good this year?
Because I'm traveling at the end of the week, this year's Thanksgiving "feast" at my house will be frozen pizza and beer and whatever looks good when I'm wandering the aisles at the grocery.
Maybe it's just because World of Warcraft is a 14-year-old game and Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm are much newer, but it feels like WoW could definitely learn a few things from its younger siblings when it comes to in-game holiday events.
Hallow’s End has a wealth of lore behind it — and Blizzard should use that as the foundation of an overhaul to the holiday
In my opinion, Hallow's End has been a casualty of the increasing hostility between the Horde and the Alliance since Cataclysm. In particular, the holiday suffers from two problems -- a tendency toward stagnation and a removal of its in-game cultural significance that renders it effectively meaningless.
So Hallow's End is done but you still crave some macabre goodness.
