Later this month, Hallow’s End will begin. Several of my toons need an achievement or two [darn pet and helm!] to finish out their violet protos. Lots of people are working on finishing these achievements pre-Cataclysm. One of the achievements you can do now, with a little luck.
Check Your Head involves placing a pumpkin head on a person of each race. I had a bunch of [Weighted Jack’o’lanterns] from last year [Headless Horseman on 7 toons or so hee hee]. Anyway, I sent them to my husband’s alts and he ran around, with his pick of people to toss them on. There was no competition, no one with the 60min horseman buff not removing it so you can toss a pumpkin on them. It’s a minor annoyance to 10 people now and is one less person who’ll be throwing them that week.
I also did it on Askevar2. I bought a stack of 10 off the Auction House for 10g – which that cost of doing it now as opposed to struggling and begging for help that week is well worth it to me.
I got the idea for this the other day when someone was running around Dalaran and tossed a pumpkin on my toon’s head. Again, your competition is non-existent and people are more likely to shrug it off as someone running around with extra pumpkins having fun rather than screeching at you after the event starts.
