Starting tomorrow we’ll be celebrating World of Warcraft’s 13th anniversary. You can see a full write-up of what to expect here: https://www.wowhead.com/event=693/wows-13th-anniversary. The event concludes on November 30.

The Celebration Package, while great for your regular alts, is NOT ALLOWED for any Challenge character.

Blood Thirsty Challengers: When you open the gift you will have a quest that gets auto-accepted. This quest will count against your Quest Completion if you turn it in.

There are actually two daily quests available:

A Time to Reflect is available for ALL LEVELS. Irons and Tins should be able to do this quest (sorry Bloods, back to the blood-soaked fields you go). Pacifists should check the quest out first (or let us know) but I would think this quest should be okay as you are answering a question. One issue you may run into is proximity kills if someone starts killing critters beside the quest-giver. Beware.

The Originals is available only for Level 60 or higher characters. You are not allowed to join a group, so overall this quest would be a no-go for your Challenger. You can try to tag the world boss, but you do so at your own risk; I’m sure there will be some fairly deadly effects. Blood Thirsty and Pacifists most certainly cannot do this quest.

 

Two weeks ago, we were privileged to be a panelist Con Before the Storm’s World of Podcast Warcraft panel live at BlizzCon 2017. We truly appreciate all the support we’ve gotten from everyone in the community. Thank you all.

It is one thing to sit in front of a camera and talk to a chat room; it is a completely different experience to sit in front of a packed house with all eyes on you. I have a ton of respect for the professional podcasters we all know and love and now even more respect for those that are able to pull it off in front of a live audience.

You can find the audio for our Warcraft panel at the d20crit site: http://d20crit.com/podcasts/world-of-podcasts/cbts-2017-6-world-of-warcraft/.

This week Broximar joins Stone and Leeta to share his Challenge adventures. They also chat about their week with their challenge characters and as always run down the State of the Challengers and respond to community questions.

Congratulations to Towny, his Draenei Paladin Annabolic just dinged 110 as an Ironman Champion, the 24th champion since Legion came out.

You may know Towny from his past guest appearance on Episode 81 of the WoW Challenges Podcast and his famously named Pacifist named Snuffletips.  Pally Annabolic was born in February of this year and dinged today (October), 242 days later.   Next time Towny is on the podcast, we’ll ask him what his /played time is.

Annabolic was grand-fathered early on the Tinman list, meaning he played his Tin under the stricter ironman rules.  This is Towny’s 2nd max-level ironman, “Bazta” is #18 on the champion’s list, dinging that toon during the mid-summer festival.

So “grats” Towny, we wish you best of luck with Shnuffletips and look forward to your next visit to hear about your adventures!

Editor’s Note: ‘Ster is the original author, Stone edited and posted.

 

jackHallow’s End is upon us and I’ve written up a quick list of do’s and don’t’s to help guide you through the event. Hallow’s End runs from October 18 through November 1. Here’s Wowhead’s guide: https://www.wowhead.com/news=274251/hallows-end-2017-holiday-updates-and-guide

Blood Thirsty Warning: Generally events don’t apply to Bloods, Hallow’s End is no exception. Completing quests will count against you.

Candy Buckets – This is a great time to pick up some relatively easy XP. You can get free experience by going to inns all across the World of Warcraft and looting the candy buckets. A list of all candy buckets can be found here: https://www.wowhead.com/hallows-end-guide#candy-bucket-locations-and-maps

Candy in General – The candy themselves are probably not a good idea to you. The Tricky Treat candy, for example, gives your character a 4% bonus to your speed. Yes, you’ve earned that item on your character but it is giving you a buff…  it’s the same way as buying buff food… you’ve earned the gold for it yes, but the buff itself is not allowed. The Hallow’s End Candy also does give benefits that are not allowed for your challenger.

Apple Bobbing – Apples from the bucket are okay. They return 75% of your health over 25 seconds while eating, however, do not give any buffs. Please keep in mind these can only be used during the Hallow’s End event… after November 1, these items will disappear from your bags.

The Wicker Man – It is okay to do the Wicker Man quest only. In the process of doing the quest you will receive a buff that gives you a bonus to experience and reputation. The buff itself is NOT ALLOWED. Please right-click it off before turning in any other quests. This is similar to the Midsummer Fire Festival buff that was also not allowed.

Tricky Treats – You are allowed to collect the Tricky Treats and use them to buy pets, mounts and rewards, however, please keep in mind that any items purchased are still subject to the Challenge Rules. You can buy a battle pet no problem… you just can’t use it on that Challenge Character.

There are new items you can buy with your tricky treats in 2017:

Headless Horseman Defeated in Town – In Brill, Goldshire or wherever, you will be able to douse the fires of the headless horseman and defeat him. You are allowed to loot the pumpkin. However, you will receive a buff called “Victory!” that can’t be removed unless you’re out of the town. When it’s time to leave the town, simply right-click the buff off and you’ll be good to go. Fire Warning: the fire WILL kill your challenger. Take care when the Horseman is around.

Headless Horseman Dungeon – You are not allowed to queue for the Headless Horseman dungeon as this is against the rules of all challenges.

Hallowed Helm (Gear Exception)– This piece of gear is equipped on your head. Normally this would red-flag you since it’s a blue item, however, I’ve made an exception in the code to allow this gear since it provides no boosts or bonuses… it’s purely cosmetic.

Gear Warning: Hallow’s End Armor is now GREEN and will flag you!

All Other Quests – All other quests should be allowed. I don’t see anything in particular that would not be allowed.
