Today 18th of 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 whoever asks. Hallow’s End, in my eyes, is a great event with a lot of gold-making potential, some of which may be well-known to most; but not to all. Halloween is an awesome public holiday as if players needed another excuse to dress up in World of Warcraft.
Apart from the Darkmoon Faire (which is more frequent), Hallow’s End is by far the most profitable event on the calendar for me. This is partly due to the number of Companion Pets, and Battle Pets on offer. Depending on your realm, some of these pets can demand upwards of 90k each.
What to DO!
When you’ve collected 150 Tricky Treats, you need to check out the vendors appropriate to your faction. These have been added below.
Here’s a list of Companion Pets 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 later! 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.
|Companion Pet||Tricky Treats||U.S (RMA)||E.U (RMA)|
|Feline Familiar||150 Tricky Treats||49,154g||39,999g|
|Cursed Birman||150 Tricky Treats||44.795g||40,000g|
|Widget the Departed||150 Tricky Treats||70,000g||62.017g|
|Naxxy||150 Tricky Treats||55,000g||65,000g|
Not to DO!
Do not purchase the Sinister Squashling. This costs the same Tricky Treats as the rest and can be looted from Loot-Filled Pumpkins (Level 35), Loot-Filled Pumpkins (level 40), and Handful of Treats, these do not hold a lot of value; due to the vast amount available.
Farming Candy Buckets:
For a comprehensive guide on farming Candy Buckets with efficient routes, check out my guide: Farming Candy Buckets.
Be sure to install the addon, Handynotes- Candy Buckets. This addon will show all the locations on your map 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, saving you a lot of time overall. Due to the Shadowlands pre-patch and the squish to leveling and experience gains, it isn’t easy to assess, at this early stage, how lucrative these are for leveling. I suppose it doesn’t harm to complete it while you’re traveling.
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 the second prize with the Magic Broom, and mount and dismount like a Druid.
As a final reminder, check out the guide from Wowhead to get a comprehensive guide to what to do during the Hallow’s End World Event.
I will update this post if there are any new additions to the vendors and loot tables for the event that have gold-making potential.
