Hallow's End is one of my favorite holidays in World of Warcraft. Running from from
October 18 - October 31
, the holiday invites players to gather candy, wands, food, masks, and even vanity pets from inn keepers all over the in-game world.
While there weren't as many changes in 2012 as there were in 2011, there's a few new things this holiday season.
Much like the Brewfest items had been, all Hallow's End rings (plus the helmet and sword) have been upgraded to ilevel 470 making them pretty useful this time around!
The Horseman's Horrific Hood
The Horseman's Sinister Slicer
Wicked Witch's Signet
Band of the Petrified Pumpkin
Seal of Ghoulish Glee
The Horseman's Ring
There's one new achievement:

News Round Up: Weapon Enchant Changes, Heart of the Wild, WoWkemon

Blizzard posted a ton of information today on several enchants that players have been puzzled about--

Recent blue posts have also addressed Heart of the Wild Changes, misconceptions about
Gara'jal the Spiritbinder

On a lighter note, our friends at WoW Insider wrote a great article on

5.1 PTR: Brawler's Guild and New Krasarang Wilds PvP Hubs
2012/10/14 at 10:36 AM
Level 90 characters are working once again on the PTR, so we took a look at the new developments in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, and Krasarang Wilds. There's two major features that we found:
Krasarang Wilds PvP Hubs
. From what we've seen, it looks like the Alliance is getting a lot of love when it comes to these new areas that show off combat and PvP skills--their areas show that they've rebounded from Theramore.
Krasarang Wilds: New PvP Hubs
A large part of 5.1 is about the Alliance and Horde conflict escalating to the point where they've set up military bases on the shores of Krasarang Wilds.
Two new reputations have been added as a result:
for the Alliance and
for the Horde.
The Alliance hub is located at
in the east, and the Horde hub is located at
to the far west.
Each base has objectives for the enemy team to capture like graveyards and towers, commissions to earn that can recruit guards to protect your new territory, and daily quests.

Pet Battles: Leveling by Zone, October 12th Hotfixes
2012/10/13 at 10:00 AM
Continuing with our pet battle coverage, we'll be focusing on the leveling flow today, sorting each zone by their wild battle pet levels. Pet battle progression through zones roughly follows the same path you'd take questing, with a few minor deviations. Each zone in the tables below takes you to that zone's battle pet map, with a list of all the pets found in the zone and the pet locations marked on the map.
Here's some basics about capturing wild pets:
You can capture a wild battle pet when it is below 35%.
At 35%, you can use the
ability to attempt to capture the pet.
This takes up a turn and there is a chance it can miss--which diminishes with each failed capture.
You can only capture one companion pet when fighting a team of three wild pets. You must also win the battle to retain your captured pet!
Captured wild pets may have their level decay when captured (still much better than leveling one from scratch):
Level 16-20 pets lose one level.
Level 21-25 pets lose 2 levels.
