World Event Updates and Shadowlands Release Date

Apologies for the late post tonight; internet issues delayed this post from getting published. Hopefully, things will pick up from hereon. It’s been an exciting week thus far. We finally got confirmation of the new release date for Shadowlands (23rd/24th November). The cherry on the cake, we finally got the official date for the pre-launch Scourge invasion for 10th November. I have many alts that need that catch-up gear, so this is music to my ears.

Hallow’s End:

If you’ve been collecting all the Tricky Treats during the Hallow’s End World Event, be aware that the end is nigh! If you’re reading this and haven’t taken part yet, there’s still time. The Hallow’s End event finishes Sunday, 1st November. Be sure to spend any Tricky Treats that you’ve earnt up to this point; any treats left within your bag will be consumed and forever lost once the deadline hits.

To make flying to all the Candy Buckets effortless, check out the addon, HandyNotes_Hallow’s End this highlights where all the Candy Buckets are on the map. An added bonus is TomCat’s Tours: Hallow’s End. This addon, will automatically open the Handful of Treats when looted, this will save you a lot of time overall.

Check out my recent post regarding Hallow’s End if you want to take part. There are some expensive Companion Pets of interest if you can collect 150 Tricky Treats before Sunday! Naxxy and the Widget the Departed are my favoured Companion Pets to buy to sell on the Auction House.

Darkmoon Faire:

Sunday will also see the return of the Darkmoon Faire. I hope you’ve either been saving up your Darkmoon Artifacts or purchasing them from the Auction House in prior to its reopening. Prices will spike once it’s opened! With the pre-patch finally here, I’m intrigued to see how the Replica Transmog market will reflect with the recent changes.

It will be the first Darkmoon Faire since the pre-patch released, so it will be interesting to see how players adjust to the new level requirements. If you weren’t already aware, there has been considerable changes to many of the items’ level requirements, which has forced me to rewrite my Darkmoon Faire Guide. The main Darkmoon Faire page now has helpful links to separate topics/pages of interest, helping to keep the main page short and concise. This page is a work in progress, so it will develop further over the coming weeks.

For more info on the Darkmoon Faire, check out my guide.

Tankard’s O’ Profit (Brewfest):

Here’s another update on the Tankards O’ Profit that I purchased from the World Event: Brewfest. Due to the delay to the pre-patch, the tankards had a lot of value, due to their 82 item level being greater than the Uncanny weapons, so this mean’t the Tankards were a viable option for fresh level 50’s.

Sadly, this will only last until the release of the Scourge invasion as the incoming catch-up gear of item level 100 will be far better. It was great whilst it lasted.

World Event: Hallow’s End

Today 18th October, sees the start of the World Event: Hallow’s End, an event where fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever ask. Hallow’s End in my eyes, is another cracking event with a lot of gold-making potential, some of which may be well known to most; but not to all, so I’ll add this nonetheless.

Our aim during the event, is to collect a currency called Tricky Treat, which can be collected via a number of methods. I recommend this complete and comprehensive guide, Wowheads: Hallow’s End guide!

When you’ve collected 150 Tricky Treats, you need to check out the vendors appropriate of your faction. These have been added below.

Horde – Undercity:
Woim (Companion Pets)

Alliance – Stormwind City:
Pippi (Companion Pets)

Here’s a list of Companion Pets to purchase from the vendors mentioned above. These will become very profitable, once the event has finished. As ever, purchase these from the Auction House during the event, if they’re cheap enough – to resell at a later date! I’ve added Region Market Average (RMA) prices from The Undermine Journal. These prices are averages and will inflate and deflate during the World Event, find the (RMA) which reflects your Region.

Widget the Departed150 Tricky Treats70,000g62.017g
Naxxy150 Tricky Treats55,000g65,000g

Do not purchase the Sinister Squashling. This costs the same amount of Tricky Treats as the rest and can be looted from: Loot-Filled Pumpkins (Level 35) and Loot-Filled Pumpkins (level 40) and from Handful of Treats, these do not hold a lot of value, due to the vast amount available.

Be sure to install the addon, Handynotes- Candy Buckets. This addon will show all the locations on your map, that have an Inn with a Candy Bucket. I’d also include TomCat’s Tours: Hallow’s End. This addon, will automatically open the Handful of Treats when looted, this will save you a lot of time overall. Due to the Shadowlands pre-patch and the squish to levelling and experience gains, it’s difficult to assess at this early stage, how lucrative these are for levelling. I suppose it doesn’t harm to complete whilst you’re on your travels.

Don’t forget to queue for the dungeon, to fight the Headless Horseman to get that opportunity to loot The Headless Horseman. If you’re unlucky to get the mount, you could get second-prize with the Magic Broom, and feel like a Druid.

As a final reminder, to get a comprehensive guide to what to do during the Hallow’s End World Event, check out the guide from Wowhead.

I will update this post if there’s any new additions to the vendors, loot tables for the event that have gold-making potential.

Holiday Pets

Anyone looking to dip their fingers into the pet market, will be interested to know a few tips regarding holiday pets. Holiday pets can be a real gold maker and knowing when to buy and sell them can make you an absolute mint… hell, if anyone would know, it’s me! What an ideal time to create this post, with Hallow’s End here and the Feast of Winter Veil on the horizon.

It’s safe to say, if the price is right, you can buy a holiday pet at any given time, but the prime time is when the event is available, as the market is always flooded with them. With TSM3, I can set up a group and assign pets to a set price, so when I make searches, it will find a pet within that price source and then I have the decision whether to buy it or not.  As ever, each server will have its own price for any given holiday pet. It’s down to your ability to find out what’s the best price and then buy up any cheap pets that you think will net you a profit.

What we want to do, is buy up these pets and store them. You can either learn them and keep them in your collection, or simply cage them and store in your Bank or Guild Bank. Essentially, we’re looking at stocking these up and waiting for the supply to die down, then once there’s a demand, we then start to sell them. This will sometimes vary from a couple of Weeks to a couple of Months, but the longer the better.

Here’s an example of holiday pets to buy and pets to ignore, this Hallow’s End.

Widget the Departed
Feline Familiar
Cursed Birman

Sinister Squashling

The reason I ignore the Sinister Squashling, is there’s just so many of them, that they never really die down from the Auction House meaning that there’s never ever any demand for them. They also drop from the Headless Horseman. However, the previous 3 pets are always in demand. The Feline Familiar is needed for an achievement, [Crazy for Cats] so will always be wanted. The Cursed Birman and Widget the Departed are very good sellers and at level 25, could net you around the 15k-20k mark depending on your server. These are only obtained via the Tricky Treat vendor during Hallow’s End for 150 tricky Treats.

The best way to get these treats, is doing The Headless Horseman daily Dungeon and flying to all the Candy Buckets. There are 129 Candy Buckets scattered around and each one will offer you between 0-3 Treats. I managed to get 241 after looting them all. You might get lucky and get 300+ thus getting you 2 pets, but it depends if the RNG gods are looking down on you…lol.

Remember, if you buy level 1 pets, you can power level them to level 22 in 6 minutes or level 25 in 10 minutes, battling Squirt from your Level 3 Menagerie. Squirt is available every 15 days. Read my post HERE for a guide on power leveling with Squirt.

I hope you found this post helpful. If you have any questions, please post below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Good luck!
