New Hallow's End content for 2011

Hallow's End is nearly upon us, and this year looks like it's going to have a whole bunch of fun new things to keep us occupied, from new pets to new loot to new quests.

To start with, the famous wickerman of Undercity will now have a Stormwind equivalent, maintained by the Gilneans. Alliance and Horde will have a chance to honor their own wickerman or douse the one that belongs to the opposing faction. In addition, you'll be able to go on a stink bomb run over Stormwind or Undercity, or clean up after the other sides' bombing. You can read up on all of these quests, which are dailies, in Allison's Hallow's End Achievement Guide.

The Headless Horseman will once again lurk in the Scarlet Monastery graveyard, with his usual outlay of rings, his helm (perfect for transmogrification), and his sword, all of which will now be ilevel 365. His Reins will also be a possible reward from the first kill each day, of course. Again, you can find a complete list of his loot in our Hallow's End Achievement Guide.

Tricky Treats, those annoying things that you couldn't destroy fast enough in years past, will now buy you stuff. Vendors this year will sell every single Halloween mask for two Tricky Treats each, and two different pets, the Feline Familiar and the Little Wickerman, for 150 Tricky Treats each. Tricky Treats will be awarded from various quests or Hands of Treats from trick-or-treat buckets in inns around the world.

The holiday officially starts Oct. 18, so get ready! There's lots of new stuff to do this year, and not much time to do it in, especially if you're not about to tear yourself away from BlizzCon, even for a flying horse.

Patch 4.2 PTR: New vanity pets

As was mentioned in our patch 4.2 patch notes post earlier this week, this patch is light on patch notes but heavy on data. It's going to keep dataminers busy for quite some time, considering there are over 800 new items in this first build alone.

Among those 800 new items are a few new vanity pets, which should keep pet collectors on their toes:

I'm willing to bet that both the Hyjal Bear Cub and the Fire Lasher will be rewards from the new daily quests in the Regrowth and Molten Front. The same likely applies to the new Trampoline item that appeared in the patch 4.2 data.

Dragonwrath will be the guild reward for completing the new caster legendary, so the origin of that pet isn't a mystery at all.

The Feline Familiar's origin is currently an unknown, but I'm willing to take a guess and say that it will be a part of the revamped Hallow's End event. We started to see pieces of a new Hallow's End in patch 4.1, so it's not a surprise that we might see more of it in patch 4.2. Update: A broomstick for the Feline Familiar is also in the datafiles, so perhaps that's what will set this cat apart from the others?

Lastly, there's an icon for a baby version of the upcoming Winged Guardian microtransaction mount. It's unknown how you get it, though it very likely involves the Blizzard store one way or the other.
