I'm not entirely sure I like the new 'bag system' that they came up with for the holiday bosses. Sure, it makes it so that you don't have to roll against people for the pet or scythe but only having 1 chance a day instead of 5 seems meh to me. I ran it every day on all of my 6 80's and I saw 3 pets and 2 scythes. Of course I didn't get a pet on my main who's my pet collector which irritated me. Really wish they had made the pet BoA or something. QQ. This pet collector is a sad panda for sure. Other than that I liked how you could run it over and over again if you needed a cloak, that part was better.

It really doesn't make a difference since they increased the drop rates to match the 5 chances you got in the previous years.

Yeah, but it still seriously changed if I was able to seriously farm the pet or not. For the v-day event the group I ran with had almost 25 man raid full of alts and what not to use summons on so the pet was much easier to obtain on my main than relying completely on RNG. Which is bothersome if you're a pet collector.

I will be sad when I can't solo the HH using anyone willing to spare them's alt summons, that mount is probably my favorite thing ever and one of the few I've seriously tried for to elude me.

You aren't meant to farm. That's the point. With all the changes Blizzard are making in Cataclysm (10/25 man raid on same lock out, limit on badges you can get per week so that raiders don't feel compelled to do heroics, bags for holiday bosses) it is clear that Blizzard don't want people to farm like we used to.I guess they got sick of all the media about idiots wasting their lives playing WoW 24/7.

Well, regardless of what we are and aren't supposed to do. It's irritating that my main is stuck at 131 instead of 132 pets and I have it on alts I barely play. >.< I understand they want to make the game more casual in ways, but some aspects really are annoying. I'm happy about only having to do either 25 man or 10 man raids. Not doing both definitely makes me happy. Get burnt out on raiding really quick doing it twice or having to do it on alts as well.
@Vanz"It really doesn't make a difference since they increased the drop rates to match the 5 chances you got in the previous years."While there are posts saying they've increased the drop rate for items in the Hallow's End, I've never found a blue post saying that they actually had increased the drop rate for others including this one. Either way one still had less /chances/ to try for them regardless of the drop rate, especially if you were one of the servers that was down for an entire day.In any case they could've handled the method a bit differently, such as not including you in the RNG if you already had it as they do with other unique items. I got the Ice Chip two days in a row which means that the others in my group were excluded (I asked them)from getting something I could no longer use. Now it's just taking up bag space since it's soulbound. I'd rather have seen the Frostscythe drop.
