Unfortunately, that last achievement for Hallow’s End is a bit of a pain. This will be my third year on it and it is simple a matter of luck as to whether it gets done or not.
Right now though, rather like Gordon, I am feeling a bit of WoW malaise. Cataclysm is a month away. I’ve been on, read up on my specs, tried out the new skills on a few characters, but am generally in a holding pattern until Cataclysm hits and the instance group returns to Azeroth.
So I am not on enough, or interested in logging on enough, to go do a trick or treat every hour in hopes of getting those last two masks. Blood Elf masks. Damn Blood Elves.
I do get on to do the Headless Horseman once a day. I was having a problem with WoW locking up during the Headless Horseman event. Fortunately, Larisa was having the same issue, and a comment on her post pointed me to an addon that fixes a tool tip crash that seems to be afflicting WoW of late.
The addon basically suppresses tool tips and prints them out in your chat window instead. A simple fix.
Not that my locking up seemed to slow down the demise of the Headless Horseman. Even with a disconnected Ret Pally, three groups I was in killed him and I logged back on to find I had the daily quest done.
So I suspect that I won’t finish this achievement again, despite this being my third run through Hallow’s End. We shall see.
