Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, both in-game and out. There’s something about Fall that speaks to me- the steadily darkening days, the crisp feel of the air as you step out in the morning, the anticipation that snow isn’t long off. It’s the best time for cider, hiking, and the annual slew of horror movies and ghost specials that occupy October. I was delighted when I first started playing WoW in 2006 to find that Blizzard had their own version of All Hallow’s Eve; but somehow, even with world PvP at Southshore, giant pumpkins, and Treat-or-Treating at the Inns, as fun as it was, it lacked something. Everyone could feel it. The following year, I remember hearing that Blizzard was adding a seasonal boss within the Scarlet Monastery Graveyard for the upcoming Hallow’s End. When it rolled around, curious, I responded to a request in Trade Chat for a healer. I had no idea what to expect; but seeing that glowing, leering pumpkin for the first time, examining the suspiciously loose soil of Sir Thomas’ grave, and hesitantly lighting my first Dreary Candle, the pure anticipation sent a deliciously creepy shiver up my spine that I hadn’t felt since seeing The Nightmare Before Christmas as a kid, or reading my first Goosebumps book. THIS was going to be epic. THIS was what the Holiday had been missing. One by one, other groups nervously assembled. We’d all seen the Horseman racing across the skies above low-level villages, chucking down flaming pumpkins and taunting players trying to put out the blazing buildings. That first year he appeared, it wasn’t just a bored level 85 and a few confused lowbies showing up at Brill- EVERYONE that was online came. It was a sea of nameplates, level 70’s and below, forming water-lines to pass along buckets, racing around on mounts, feverishly working together in a way that I hadn’t seen except for the world dragon-bosses or organized large-scale raids. Tells went out in General Chat, and Horde raced from all corners of the world to save our towns from the Horseman’s ill will and badly-written poetry. It was spectacular, one of defining moments of the game which brought players of all levels together, and an event that would literally spawn other holiday-themed Big Bads. Later on, the holiday would be plagued with unscrupulous players attempting to scam summons for a better shot at the notoriously hard-to-get Reins (and at that time, the Squashling)- but that first year was something special. Now, each fall, I put on a monster-mash rerun, crack open an autumn ale, and log on, fondly returning to that now-all-too-familiar mound of disturbed earth- the pumpkin’s grin welcoming me back- for another face-to-face with Sir Thomas Thomson, the Headless Horseman of Hallow’s End.
My favorite holiday, by FAR, is Love is in the Air.
That would be Brewfest for me.Since i LOVE a good beer anytime no other holiday can trump this for me.
I'm really torn, because I really like all the holidays... as a player with Long, Strange Trip, I know all the holidays pretty much in and out.That being said, I think my favorite holiday isn't one of the major holidays, and it doesn't count towards the big achievement.My favorite would be Pirate's Day, for a myriad of reasons. For one, it was the very first holiday I experienced. I started playing WoW late August and didn't know enough about the game to join in Pilgrim's Day (did it even exist back in 2009? I don't remember...), so when Pirate's Day came along.... well, I just had to join in. Having very little knowledge about Azerothian geography and running my little level 20-something butt through STV was exciting and scary. I got lost in Booty Bay and fell into the water... but ultimately I found my prize, and got to run around as a pirate to boot. Man, I was so proud of myself, going from Ashenvale all the way to Booty Bay... It all feels so noobish now XDAdding on to that is the fact that I am a Pastafarianist (yes, we do exist), so International Speak Like a Pirate Day is very important to me (if just for the lulz). I do indeed speak like a pirate all day. So to have something analogous in my favorite game... adds to it being my favorite!Now all I need is Bloodsail Admiral... and I shall be a proper pirate!
My favorite World Event is Hallow's End, cause I finally got my mount after 3~4ish years! :D Also the buffs during Hallow's End are amazing. :)
All hail! the midsummer festival! so fun....burning everything and things.
I like the lunar festival. I love the fireworks and the festive feeling of the cities and all the party people lol
Darkmoon Faire, I just love my Jubling.
Favorit WoW holiday is easily Brewfest. Why? Because then I can pretend the not-so-intelligent players in my pugs have a reason for being stupid: they're all drunk as opposed to just being daft.
My favorite holiday is Hollows end because it has flames, death knights and buckets. what more could you ask for?
i like winter veil because i love presents =P and having to wait to 12 o clock ingame to open the presents is awesome =P
My favorite holiday is Pirate's Day because I know I don't need to log in everyday and hop I get a bag with the mount or pet that I'm after. I also don't feel bad when I can't get around to logging in each day since even if I miss Pirate's Day, I already have the achievements for it. Perfect holiday.
When I first started playing World of Warcraft it was during last summer right before the Midsummer Festival. Long story short, I had no idea what was going on and had quite a miserable time trying to find out what to do with all these flowers in my bags. The holiday ended and all the flowers went away. I was left flowerless and devastated. I realized that summer is completely void of any other holidays and I spent most my days leveling... running instances... building rep... and finally reaching the coveted level of 85! That all came to an end when the most epic of holidays arrived. You can smell the Stout from Storm Wind. Hell... the smell of malted barley traveled all the way to Nagrand! BREWFEST had arrived! I have never had so much fun getting my toon completely smashed and gaining all the achievements possible. With the help of Wowhead, I found out that you can jump into the Maw of the Void completely smashed and not die! So in short (well not quite /laugh) Brewfest so far is my favorite holiday and Im proud to call myself "Brewmaster Jamesworthy"P.S. Many Coren Direbrews died in the making of this postP.P.S Thanks for the Brewfest Kodo Mr. Direbrew!
Winter Veil. Love those reindeer mounts flooding Stormwind.
