always good to see additions to event's i just fear that this will be the last addition in a long time again since lets be honest they rarely ever add or improve on events like they just did here for WoD so i think we will see no changes the next 1-3 years again... hopefully i am wrong and blizzard will now frequently add new pets and features to events.
Yep, those are permanent.
Was quite excited to see the contenders outfits... massively disappointed that they're just recoloured mageweave sets.Would it have killed them to do some proper mexican wrestler outfits? Make one, recolour it 5 times and baddaboom. Something fresh!
Don't see why the contender outfits aren't toy box items. 5 bag slots already cluttered up with fluff again =(
Get a raid group. Have a couple people to rez, everyone else in costumes. Go to Halaa, pile against a wall, and have one person attack while the rest stand there.With eight people in the raid (1 attacker, 2 rezzers, 5 target dummies) we got the 170 Halaa tokens needed to buy both mounts in under 20 minutes. And we got everyone the 50 kill achievement in about half an hour (all total).Just have everyone but the rezzers take their gear off so it goes faster. Great way to grind out those tokens if you still need those two Halaa talbuks.
Really wish the contender's costumed didn't silence you and just made you look like that. Would a been nice to look like that and still play the game. Oh well, back to lvling up tailoring so my Belf mage can not wear pants like every other Belf you see.
FASTEST WAY TO EARN ACHIEVEMENT OF THE CALAVERA AND OTHERS.First don't do the same mistake as I did, don't get all exited and buy all the costumes.. you just need one =PA excellent way to do this is by getting in a group of 5 and if you cant get 5 people, just get at least one more other than you haha.Go to Shadowfang Keep (you spawn pretty much at the door when you die)As you spawn in, to your left you'll see a wall and some barrels.Have your party stand on top of each other and on top of the barrels and you will be facing them below the barrels.Make sure all of them are wearing the costumes; including you. (any color would do).Proceed to attack them against the wall. The reason you are doing this against the wall, is because when you get the jump ability you wont have to back up to jump, you'll simply just press it and you'll land on them and they will take damage. As they release and walk back in the dungeon, during the time you'll keep pressing your ability till you get jump again and luckily when they are all position and ready you would have the jump attack.If you do it this way, they will have low HP when they walk in, and in two attacks you can finish them off. So if you do a Jump and a sweep attack, instant kill. But some times it may take 3 ability hits if you get a jab haha.Doing this will speed up the process even if you were only two people doing this. Kill your friend, he releases, quickly try to get jump attack ready to go so when he goes up against the wall it will take about two hits to kill him, he release again, comes back with low HP, rinse and repeat. Once that person gets the achievement switch. You'll be done fairly quickly trust me. Hope this helps, Sorry for horrible grammar and spelling.Special thanks to DoonGon from BlackRock server for helping me get this Achievements and test everything out to cut time =]
Hi, I just finished my Calavera achievement and I am so happy. I was even able to get it in the heart of the festivities in Durotar. For those of you who want to be able to complete the achievement and be around all the other celebrators here are some tips. 1. Stash all your items with durability in the bank.2. Be ready to be defeated.3. Use the angel to res yourself after you are defeated for instant respawn.4. Rez sickness lowers you hp and makes food heal you quicker.5. All the moves do percentage based health damage so your hp pool doesn't matter.6. Now go fight to the death with all the others contenders.7. Let yourself be defeated so that all the other people are able to get the credit that they deserve. :)
Gotta have to say that I really like the additions to the events, but the Calavera achievement can be a pain to do I must say.While I tried to do it solo there were people just grouping up and basically banking people and other people taking off the buff before their health were reduced to Zero.I think that Blizzard should change this to make it a 1 on 1 duel to the death instead of everybody trying to attack everyone!
It appears that The Grateful Dead can only be done once per server, but you can run it on multiple servers to collect more marionettes. They can also be caged.Edit: wasn't looking at the correct graveyards
Not sure if mentioned yet, but Soul Link will mitigate the damage you take from other contenders and Cauterize Master will still heal you while costumed.
Words for the wise. As of 11/1/14, the contender's costume kills qualify for Halaa Battle TokenMake a raid and rake in the tokens.
