“Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum! Cry for mercy; the reckoning has come!”

Our ghouls and goblins can delight while the rest of us will be cowering with fright! Hallow’s End has come round again and will be haunting us from October 18th through November 1st. For a full in-depth review of this event please feel free to check out WoWHead.com’s guide: Hallow’s End 2019

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the other challenge variants please see below.

New for 2019
Looks like the only thing new for this year was an update to the item level of the loot dropped by the Headless Horseman from the dungeon event and doesn’t really pertain to us.

Quests & Daily Quests
You may complete all of the quests and daily quests that are offered for this event.

Apple Bobbing
In the starting zone towns, you will find water barrels with apples in them where you can bob for apples. These apples will return 3% of your health and mana over 25 seconds while eating and do not provide any buffs. Feel free to stock up on them but do keep in mind this item will vanish from your bags once the event is over.

A Stinky Situation
You are ALLOWED to participate in the following quests: Stink Bombs Away! (Alliance), Clean Up in Stormwind, Stink Bombs Away! (Horde), and Clean Up in Undercity. Please do keep in might that these quests might cause you to be PVP flagged for a brief amount of time so exercise caution.

The Wickerman
You are ALLOWED to complete the Wickerman quest however the buff Unburdened (Alliance) or Grim Visage (Horde) is NOT ALLOWED. This buff provides a bonus to experience and reputation right-click it off immediately.
Additionally, every 4 hours an announcement will be made throughout Stormwind and Undercity signifying an RP event will be starting in 10 minutes that takes place by the Wickerman statue. At the end of the RP event, Genn or Sylvanas will buff nearby players with either Greymane’s Resolve or Decree of the Dark Lady. These buffs are NOT ALLOWED! Ideally, you should leave the area when the announcement is made about the event starting soon. If you do happen to get the buff on you it needs to be removed at once.

Headless Horseman Town Event
For this event, the Headless Horseman will rain down terror upon the starting zone towns setting the buildings on fire. You will need to grab a water bucket and try to put the flames out and then the Headless Horseman will descend to the ground where everyone can attack him. Once defeated a pumpkin will appear on the ground for you to loot. You are ALLOWED to participate in this event however there are two things to make note of. First off after the Headless Horseman has been defeated you’ll receive a buff called “Victory”. This buff should be removed but can only be done so after leaving town. Secondly, please take care when the Headless Horseman is around. The fires he sets can kill your challenger. Due to the risk of the Headless Horseman killing your challenger, it might be best to wait out the encounter and run in to loot the pumpkin after it’s over.

Candy Buckets
You are ALLOWED to utilize the candy buckets that are scattered across the inns throughout Azeroth. It’s a great way to pick up some relatively easy XP but it will up the mileage on your mounts as this is a travel heavy activity. WoWHead has put together a complete list of candy bucket locations which can be found here. Don’t forget if you are a higher level challenger you may need to find and speak with Zidormi to turn back time in order to access candy buckets in some zones.

 

Candy
You are ALLOWED to obtain Tricky Treats since they are used as currency to acquire special items available from the event vendors. You are NOT ALLOWED to consume them or the Hallow’s End candy as they grant buffs to your character.

Headless Horseman DungeonThe Scarlet Monastery dungeon encounter with the Headless Horseman is NOT ALLOWED. Solo Irons are not permitted to do dungeons.

Masks & Wands
Masks are NOT ALLOWED as some will give you a stat buff so best to just avoid them altogether. Wands are NOT ALLOWED due to the fact you need to group up with others to use the item.

Cosmetics, Pets & Toys
You are ALLOWED to obtain all of the pets and toys. Please remember that while you are allowed to pick up the pets are you NOT ALLOWED to take part in any pet battles. You will also need to remove any buffs the toys may give you. As far as cosmetic items are concerned just follow your gear rules.

Back in June Stone announced his departure from WoW Challenges (due to health reasons) and handed control to Ster and myself so we can steer WoW Challenges with the help of the community. As Stone’s health condition has plateaued he is back to join us as we guide WoW Challenges into the future.

What that means is Ster, Stone and myself will become what is affectionately known as “The Tribal Elders” (yes Stone a Survivor reference just for you) and therefore he becomes a Third Equal to help Ster and myself with decisions concerning the site and the community.

Welcome Back Stone.

Raise your tankards and get ready for fun, this year’s Brewfest has now begun! Brewfest will run from September 20th through October 6th. For a complete overview of the event feel free to check out WoWHead’s guide: Brewfest 2019

The following information is for the Iron Man Challenge. For information on the other challenge variants please see below.

New for 2019
Several new things have been added for this year’s Brewfest including new Allied Race alcohol vendors and a water elemental selling refreshing water. The apple barrel locations have been slightly shifted and the Down With The Dark Iron event has been removed from the requirements needed to obtain the Brewmaster title. Instead, there are different types of invasions such as Hozen Totem or Contained Alemental. It has been brought to our attention that there is an updated Dark Iron invasion. These NPCs are hostile, seem to scale, and will inflict damage upon you. You may want to sit this event out and wait for the quest item, Direbrew Cog, to become available to grab. It is also possible that you may only be able to turn in one of the three invasion daily quests in a day.

Quests and Daily Quests
You may complete all of the quests and daily quests for this event except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance). This quest drops from Coren Direbrew in Blackrock Depths and you are not allowed to participate in dungeons.

Coren Direbrew
Coren Direbrew is this event’s main boss and since he is located in Blackrock Depths you are Not Allowed to participate in his slaying.

Brewfest Enthusiast
At 6:15 AM & 6:15 PM Pacific time Mekkatorque and Saurfang will give speeches near their camps. At the end of the speech they will then cast the Brewfest Enthusiast buff on those in the area. This buff has a 2 hour duration and increases experience by 10%. This buff is NOT ALLOWED! If you are in the area when the buff is applied simply right-click it off.

Cosmetics, Toys, and Pets
Most of the cosmetic items have been turned to uncommon quality (green) so those are NOT ALLOWED. There are a few common quality (white) items still in place but please do be careful with these. Do not leave them on. Should you have them on and they get upgraded to uncommon quality (green) in the future you will get flagged.
There are several toys and a few pets available for you to spend your event tokens on. Remember while all toys may be allowed any buffs they give you need to be removed ASAP and even though you are allowed to pick up any missing pets from your collection you are NOT ALLOWED to pet battle with your challengers!

Tin Man:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are allowed except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance).
– Dungeons are NOT ALLOWED so you may not participate in the slaying of Coren Direbrew.
– The Brewfest Enthusiast buff is NOT ALLOWED.
– You are allowed to obtain the cosmetic items, toys, and pets but do remember to follow your gear rules, click off any buffs toys might give you, and no pet battles.

Working Man:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are allowed except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance).
– Dungeons are NOT ALLOWED so you may not participate in the slaying of Coren Direbrew.
– The Brewfest Enthusiast buff is NOT ALLOWED.
– You are allowed to obtain the cosmetic items, toys, and pets but do remember to follow your gear rules, click off any buffs toys might give you, and no pet battles.

Green Man:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are allowed except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance).

Blood Thirsty
– You are NOT ALLOWED to complete any of this event’s quests. Sorry, this event is not for you.

Pacifist:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are allowed except for Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance). The new Contained Alemental event did not seem to incur any kills to my testing character. At the time of this article going up, I had not encountered the Hozen Totem event. You may want to scout that one before trying it with your Pacifist. You do not need to actively participate in the alemental event from what I’ve seen as the item that gives you the daily quest shows up once the invasion has been successfully dealt with. You can run in when it’s over, grab the quest and be on your way. The Hozen event most likely works the same way.
– It has been brought to our attention that an updated Dark Iron invasion does exist. The Dark Iron NPCs are hostile, seem to scale, and will inflict damage against you. You may want to sit this one out and wait for the Direbrew Cog quest item to become available to grab. Watch out for prox kills here.
– You are NOT ALLOWED to kill anything so no, you may not participate in the slaying of Coren Direbrew.
– The Brewfest Enthusiast buff is NOT ALLOWED.
– You are allowed to obtain the cosmetic items, toys, and pets but do remember to follow your gear rules, click off any buffs toys might give you, and no pet battles.

Iron Teams:
– All of the event’s quests & daily quests are allowed. You are ALLOWED to complete the Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Horde) & Direbrew’s Dire Brew (Alliance) if you have a full 5 man Iron Team to enter the dungeon with. If you do not have a full 5 man team you are NOT ALLOWED to use dungeon finder to fill out your group.
– Dungeons are ALLOWED so you may participate in the slaying of Coren Direbrew if you have a full 5 man Iron Team. You are NOT ALLOWED to use dungeon finder to fill out your group.
– The Brewfest Enthusiast buff is NOT ALLOWED.

This year’s Harvest Festival will be running from September 10th through September 17th.

The Harvest Festival event has one quest that leads you to honor a specific hero based on your faction. Those who are part of the Alliance will be sent to the tomb of Uther Lightbringer in Western Plaguelands. If you are part of the Horde you will be sent to the tomb of Grom Hellscream in Ashenvale. A few days after completing the quest an item called Bounty of the Harvest will show up in your mailbox.

This event is a great opportunity to grab some nice food and is accessible without needing to complete the quest. Harvest Bread, Harvest Fish, and Harvest Boar will restore 4% of your health per second for 25 seconds. Harvest Nectar will restore 4% of your mana per second for 30 seconds. You will be able to carry a max stack of 20 of these items.

There are also 4 different types of spirit shards that players can get. They are an Anxious Spiritshard, Forlorn Spiritshard, a Peaceful Spiritshard, or a Vengeful Spiritshard. These items are NOT ALLOWED!

This quest will be allowed for Iron, Tin, Working Man, Green Man, Pacifist, Iron Team, and Green Team challengers. Sorry Blood Thirsty and Blood Thirsty Team challengers while you can not complete the quest you are allowed to restock your food supply.

For a more in-depth look at the event please refer to WoWHead’s guide.
