New Headless Horseman loot shows up on the PTR

As we mentioned the other day, The Hallow's End event is now live for testing on the 2.4.3 PTR. As seems to be the general case, Kisirani's world event team hasn't been resting on their laurels, but has been relatively steadily upgrading and fleshing out holidays as they come up. Hallow's End looks to be the latest holiday to get a change or two in the form of some new Headless Horseman loot, discovered by MMO-Champion.

A new Sword called The Horseman's Blade looks to take the center stage for the new loot. It should be pretty good for a lot of Rogues and Warriors, with 2.70 speed, 308 top damage, and 87.6 DPS, as well as a few stats. The most intriguing part, however, is that it has a use ability that will summon Pumpkin Soldiers to fight for you every 10 minutes. Heck, if you have the helmet from last year, the sword, and one of the new mounts, you can practically take the place of the Horseman, it looks like!

There also looks to be some new mounts this year as well. Instead of Brooms, it looks like the Horseman may be dropping the whole Horse. You can get both an "Unruly" ground steed and a full-fledged flying steed. The horse itself looks like a heavily armored black horse with hooves of green fel flame like those of the Warlock Dreadsteed.

There may be more loot yet to come, but of course, as this is test, none of it may make it live either. Still, it's nice to see the possibility of more fun and variety for those of us who think we've seen it all at the holidays. We'll keep an eye out for any more Hallow's End changes, and let you know what's happening.
