The Headless Horseman is making a big return to Azeroth bringing with him the chance for World of Warcraft players to win the invaluable Hearthstone.
Halloween is just around the corner in the real world but on Azeroth, it’s already in full swing. But for this year’s Halloween event, World of Warcraft players will once again come face to face with the terrifying Headless Horseman.
Annual World of Warcraft Halloween event
World of Warcraft events are always something to look forward to. Players always get interesting prizes and rewards just by participating in events. The game is already in its 16th year and as such, many of these events have become a yearly tradition.
Blizzard usually has a lot in store during Halloween. Hallow’s End is one of Blizzard’s favorite events as evidenced by its yearly return. Hallow’s End allows players access to a number of features and item rewards.
This year, they’re bringing back the Headless Horseman and with it, the chance to win the Hearthstone.
All about Hallow’s End
Hallow’s End is basically an event commemorating the Forsaken’s freedom from the Lich King’s control. However, this event is not exclusive to the Forsaken or even the Horde. Players of all races can participate in this event.
What makes this year’s Hallow’s End more special is that the next expansion will feature a lot of the undead. If one can remember, Sylvanas had destroyed the helm of domination that keeps the Undead Scourge in check. And now that it is gone, the Scourge is about to unleash mayhem upon the realm of the living.
This is an event that would mark the arrival of the next expansion, Shadowlands.
Hearthstones: what are they?
Hearthstones are teleportation devices that allow players to move from one location to another. However, they can only teleport to a location that the Hearthstone is bound to. This is definitely an invaluable item to have especially during difficult missions where players have no choice but to retreat.
Azeroth is definitely scarce of events right now that players can enjoy. Luckily, they now have this Hallow’s End event to play through until the next event arrives.
The Hallow’s End event runs from October 13 to November 1, 2020.
When will the next expansion start?
It’s hard to say. Blizzard had previously delayed the arrival of Shadowlands and they are yet to give an official launch date for the expansion. However, the pre-patch is already available for players to start. This may be an indication that Shadowlands is not that far away.
Furthermore, Blizzard continuously releases new World of Warcraft Shadowlands updates. Just recently, the game has released a new cinematic following Sylvanas‘ defeat of Bolvar. On their YouTube channel, they also released the opening music for Shadowlands.
With all this, it’s safe to assume that World of Warcraft Shadowlands expansion may arrive any day now.
