Hallow's End.My birthday is in October, so halloween has always been my fav holiday, both in and out of wow!Trick or treat wowhead!
Midsummer FestivalFor the stealth operations in enemy faction cities to steal the flame :D
Winter's Veil is definitely one of my favorite holidays in World of Warcraft.What better holiday then to turn into a snowman and throw snowballs at each other (especially in MC). :)The atmosphere in WoW is just amazing during Winter's Veil, and the quests are never disappointed.Plus Winter's Veil was the first holiday I experienced in WoW after buying the game for Christmas after launch.
I like the new Hallow's End. I love how The Headless Horseman speaks in rhyme and the quest chain to get the creepy crate, as well as the new dailies to stink bomb cities and light the wickerman. The speeches are an awesome lore addition to the holiday and they also added in the best pet ever made: Feline Familiar. Trick or treating is pretty fun, mostly because you can run around as mini-diablo when you get tricked (the other trick costumes are cool too.).
Hallow's End is most definitely my favourite holiday. I always seem to reactivate WoW when Hallow's End begins, despite the never-ending looming cloud of papers and articles I have to write for school. It's the most interesting and most fun of them all and I STILL haven't been able to get the Headless Horseman mount on 2/3 of my 85s after however many years >:( So it gives me something to work towards (as frustrating as it is...). I do, however, miss how the Headless Horseman boss used to be, with five summons. But the new vanity pet they tossed in this year makes up for my disappointment!
Without a doubt, I'd have to say Hallow's End, for whatever reason its caught my fancy these many years. Probably simply fond memories of playing while it was ongoing. It's quite ironic really, cuz I've liked the real thing, so every year I'd look forward to Hallow's End, but then groan when the 31st actually came around, lol.
Listen to my story: When I started playing WoW back in 2009, I used to play in a role-playing realm, because I thought it would add more variables to the game and hence not make it that simple. That was until I realized most of the people I played with were keyboard turners... Anyway, when I was in this RP realm, everyone in my guild was well-known for having "X" vanity item or because they could role-play amazingly well. I wanted to be someone known in my guild as well, because they used to organize special meetings for certain guild members and they wouldn't allow everyone in, and since english is not my native language I really couldn't stand a chance if I had to be compared with other RPers from my guild. By the way, it wasn't a huge guild, it used to have only 20ish online members most of the time. Then a guildy suggested me to start farming vanity items from World Event holidays so I could compete against my fellows, and thus be cool enough to get invited to those meetings and more.So I checked the calendar and the next World Event was Pilgrim's Bounty. While I waited for the holiday, I concluded that I wanted to be a PvPer, so I chose Engineering and Mining as my professions and I leveled them a little while I did some PvP. When Pilgrim's Bounty came, I farmed all the pilgrim clothes and the Turkey Cage, but as soon as I got them everyone in my guild got them as well, so I wasn't more special than anyone else.After Pilgrim's Bounty happened, I planned to get more vanity items, so I checked the calendar again and the next World Event was Feast of Winter Veil. While I waited for the next holiday to come, I finished leveling both Engineering and Mining to 450 and I was beginning to get good at PvP by that time. Then Feast of Winter Veil came and it was definitely more fun than Pilgrim's Bounty. People were not only happy because of the presents inside the game but also for the ones outside, so guild chat became as friendly as ever, and pretty much everyone was getting invited to those special role-playing meetings, even though we were still downrated by the other "better" RPers to a certain degree. Me and some others found this "downrating" a bit unpleasant and we also got shocked about how boring those "special meetings" actually were.While being unnoticed by the officers of the guild, the guild itself was beginning to split in half. After Feast of Winter Veil there was a group who did RP with the officers (and not everyone was invited) and another group who started dedicating time to PvP with me, and everyone was invited (even one officer who wasn't as arrogant as the others joined). I started somewhat leading the PvP group and we used to get to Ventrilo to organize premades and arenas without the other group. Not that they would have cared anyway. Guild chat began to be unfriendly and arrogant as it used to be before, and sometimes even worse.That was until Lunar Festival popped up. As an engineer, I got all the schematics of the fireworks. Surprisingly, I was the only engineer in the guild. "This is it!" I thought. "This is what can make me special!". But then I realized I could use this opportunity for a better purpose than the original: I started hosting an event outside Stormwind, where I would give anyone who could beat me in a duel 10 of each firework, which in other words ended being like 140 fireworks to whoever beated me. I didn't have so many fireworks with me, of course. Then I started to brag about how fun they were. Later I gave some of my friends some fireworks and started calling on guild chat stuff like: "Ok, Robert just beated me. Here are 140 fireworks for Robert! Have fun, bro". Next Robert replied: "OMG, thanks dude!". Everyone on the guild came to SW. I acted like I lost some duels against some of the people from my group, and gave those people some fireworks to show off. Then all the people from the RP group started dueling me and for their surprise, none of then was being able to beat me. The guild leader tried to beat me like 10 times and then I said on guild chat: "Ok, 10 times is all the attempts you got. Sorry pal, you gotta practice some PvP". Then he began to nerd-rage and threatened me to kick me out of the guild. I replied to that thread: "Don't worry. I won't make you kick me. I will leave the guild on my own...". Then I left the guild.Moments later I got all the whispers from the people from my group: "Hey dude, we gotta get our own guild now". And so we did. We all moved to a PvP realm and it was unbelievable better, because we didn't have to depend from other people who we couldn't get on with. And that's why among all holidays Lunar Festival is my favorite one. It's because it also means something to me and my guild: it means that we don't have to let others step on us when we want to be part of something bigger, we have to let others step in.
Hallow's End! because I just won this contest ;D
Love is in the Air, because i still dont have the Big Love Rocket mount.
My favorite WoW Holiday would be The Winter Veil because you can make your mount look like a awesome reindeer and get some awesome pets!
For me, my favorite holiday in World of Warcraft is Children's Week--or Week of the Wardens. There is a truth that we have in us a tendency to take the smallest and largest things for granted, that we forget the beauty of this world, and the magnificence of the people who surround us. We forget the idle breeze, or the melody of the songbird, or the empathetic listener. Children's Week will always remind me of how our world outside of Azeroth needs us too. The greatest casualties of war are those fatherless or motherless children. And the hole that death leaves behind.And in the same way the Horde and Alliance's children suffer, our real world conflicts leave behind orphans on both sides. We may disagree with our enemies, loathe them, but taking a moment to honor and celebrate our children has the capacity to give our minds one more fragment upon which to build a mosaic of greater understanding and tolerance. In the end, we are dust--and the memory of our lives is legacy beyond all victories.If anything, Children's Week has taught me to close my laptop and try my best to change the world.
Winter Veil. It relates so much to christmas and even though it's not that exciting, I really like opening the presents under the tree in Ironforge :D
My favorite holiday is probably Winter's Veil. What could be better than a holiday where you get free stuff in game while also getting free stuff IRL?
Brewfest is my favorite because it was my first. You always remember your first.
For me it is definitely Hallows End. Headless horseman encounter has been my favorite holiday boss by far and was the first one I had encountered.
