Leeta & Stone record a very special episode from their hotel room (tone it down, Stone!). We record in front a live “studio” audience and chat about some of the BlizzCon news that could potentially affect challengers. We have some pretty special folks come on and read our State of the Challengers. Audio may be a little glitchy at times as it’s taken directly from the stream audio (you live and learn).

jackHallow’s End is once again upon us! We’ve updated our 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/hallows-end-guide

Applicable Challenges: Generally Irons, Tins, Pacifists, Greens and Iron Teams may participate in Hallow’s End to some extent (depending on your specific challenge), however, Blood Thirsty and Blood Teams challengers may not participate due to their limited quest completion restrictions.

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-mapsAllowed: Irons, Pacifists, Tins, Greens, Iron Teams. Not Allowed: Bloods & Blood Teams.

Candy in General – The Tricky Treat candy and Hallow’s End Candy are NOT ALLOWED as they grant buffs to your character.

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. Once the event is over, these items will disappear from your bags. ALLOWED on all challengers.

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 immediately. Allowed: Irons, Pacifists, Tins, Greens, Iron Teams. Not Allowed: Bloods & Blood Teams.

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. ALLOWED on all challengers.

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. Allowed: Irons, Pacifists, Tins, Greens, Iron Teams. Not Allowed: Bloods & Blood Teams.

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

Hallowed Helm NOT ALLOWED: Cosmetic gear is no longer allowed to be equipped. This will red-flag your character.

Hallow’s End Themed Gear Warning: Hallow’s End Armor is now GREEN and will flag your Irons, Pacifists, Tins and Blood TEAMS challengers. Blood Thirsty (solo) and Green challengers can wear the Green / Uncommon armour.

Leeta & Stone (mostly Leeta) go waaaaay off topic this week.  We talk about the price of gasoline, the proper pronounciation of oui in French and unveil our new leveling contest: The Summoning!  This week’s news topics covered are: Hallow’s End Candy Buckets, The Summoning contest announcement, WoW Challenges BlizzCon Lunch, Con Before the Storm panels and Meet & Greet application and the Running of the Gnomes 2k18! As always we cover the State of the Challengers; Leeta & Stone review their weeks into the challenges; We read your comments, feedback and answer your questions.
