I Thought This Achievement Was Going to be More Difficult…

As I mentioned in the October in Review post, and which you probably missed since it was at the end of a wall of text, my daughter and I are back to playing WoW a bit, thanks in large part to the promise of Pandas.  And with Hallows End going on, I decided to try and get that mask achievement finished at last.

And then I got an unexpected achievement.


I barely got myself into Uldum before I got it too.  I went through the little intro event.

Zany, madcap adventures

And shortly ended up at Ramkahen, where I was promptly flamed by a passing epic dragon.

I am guessing they must have upped the Deathwing travel rate, since back when Cataclysm launched, I had my hunter out in Uldum for ages and never once saw him.  But Vikund, he was out there for a couple hours and Ramkahen got lit up three times.  And those flames last for a while.

And did they nerf flight routes while I was away as well?  Vikund seemed to have all the flight points in Cataclysm, even in zones he had never visited before.  Odd.

Anyway, I managed to visit all of the pumpkins in the new Cataclysm zones for that achievement, which only left me with the mask achievement… again.

Last year Hallow’s End finished up with me shy two masks.  Cataclysm added four more masks, so I had six to get.  I proceeded to hit every last pumpkin in Azeroth I could find and ended up with this.


Two damn masks left to go.  Again.  Ah well, next year in Stormwind, as they say.

At least I got the Creepy Crate pet for a few of my characters.  And the critters it eats count towards the Critter Kill Squad guild achievement, which is good, as we seem to need another 30K critters to finish it off.  Still, we have been progressing, and the last time I was paying attention to it, we needed 40K critters.  Every little bit helps.

And I am sure the Creepy Crate will make for an interesting companion pet when pet battles get introduced as part of Pandaclysm.
