Hallow's End

Hallow's End is a Halloween-style event that takes place at the mid-end of October.

When the decorations of Hallow's End light up Azeroth's cities, you know there's mischief afoot! Seek special vendors in Orgrimmar or Ironforge and get your hands on treats! Aid a sick orphan in a little trick-or-treating! Darkcaller Yanka, attending the Forsaken's Wickerman Festival, and Sergeant Hartman of Southshore are seeking your aid in keeping the enemy out of their holiday affairs - are you up to the challenge?


The day was once used for a festival near the end of harvest for humans of Lordaeron; the Forsaken later bastardized this practice, and now use the evening for their mysterious "Wickerman" rituals.[1] (APG 139)

Hallow's End marks the day the group of undead, who would later be known as the Forsaken, broke free of the Lich King's dominance and once again regained their free will. They celebrate this occasion by setting fire to a wickerman after a short speech from Sylvanas herself and smearing the ashes across their faces.

Why the Alliance or any other Horde race would celebrate Forsaken's version of the event is unclear. It seems some people will use any excuse to throw a party.

In the Warcraft book Arthas: Rise of the Lich King it its revealed that Hallow's End was celebrated by the Alliance before the Scourge even came to Lordaeron.

    • When defeated, a pumpkin is left on the ground which can be smashed for loot by every player.

Being a cat during Hallow's End isn't so bad...
