The Hallowed

All my persistence at doing the Hallow's End achievements have paid off. With the new patch yesterday I was able to receive my new title: "Desdarii the Hallowed". I'm glad they removed the mask achievement. I was trying like heck and I did get 10 of the 20 required masks but there was no way I was going to be able to complete that.

The hardest part was probably my squashling. I was getting quite worried I wasn't going to get that and only did acquire it a day or two before the event ended. What was irritating was right after getting my squashling from the horseman an innkeeper gave me one for trick or treat.

Second hardest was the Rotten Hollow achievement since it depended on Horde coming to Southshore so I could complete the task. I spent quite a bit of time hanging around Southshore before I was lucky enough to clean up a stink bomb. I never even saw the Hordie who threw it but I love you little Hordie!

The thing that stinks about it was the inability to share items. Keste didn't get any toothpicks the entire time. I got stacks of the darn things but they were soulbound and I couldn't share them so he missed out on that piece.

From what I heard what most people missed out on was the G.N.E.R.D. Rage achievement. A lot of my friends don't spend any time with PvP. I know I had to force myself into battlegrounds to finish it. Funny enough I found it easier to get a bunch of G.N.E.R.D. kills in Warsong Gulch than any other BG. Luckily I enjoy WSG! I know. I'm weird.

Regarding the Rotten Hollow, it wasn't too difficult for many of my guildies. I maintain a stable of Horde characters in the Feathermoon US roleplaying server, so I was able to switch from one character to another to help them complete the quests. It worked well for us. And I loved the G.N/E.R.D. Rage one! So much fun!

Funny story. I got my G.N.E.R.D. rage achievement by camping AV bridge. I got most of the HK's all in 2 idiot horde rushes, and all within the same buff/life.

Grats.. and yeah the duplicate non-account bound thing sucks.

I ws dreaming I could at least send the masks around to my other toons if they weren't worn.. but it... well... you know.

I think I read somewhere on day one to rush down to Southshore on day one or 2... so that's what I did.. no need to wait around...well except for the fun of the chase.
