There is no duration on this item :) just got it.
does this or anyother blue drop from boss (not icnluding brooms) are addition to 1 epic ring or are they taking rings place?
Since there is no level requirement on this item, if you can 4-man the boss, I'd say that it's a pretty cool helmet for a twink. There are better helm options, but this one would probably give the most "wow" factor. (no pun intended)
Then again, 4-manning him can't be easy, and the item has a low drop chance. *shrug*
This is a fun drop off the Headless Horseman (Lvl 70) Hallow's End quest for the seasonal event.
Item has no limited duration and IS BOP.
Ran the event probably approximately 15 times today. There is a good write up on the basics on the fight on wowwiki, so I will not repeat it here, will wait for Wowhead to have the boss up to comment on. I will say however that DPS is a good thing, a healer is probably a must, and let the tank care of the adds! It's not a hard fight but there is a definite rhythm to the fight.
However, from what I observed, ONE of the 4 brooms drops
time. In addition to that, at
one of the 'elite' items will drop (we occassionally had two) including several rings (healy, spell damage, dps, etc) , a plate helm, a non-combat pet, and this hat. It's a FUN fight, really and easily repeated over and over again.
thottbot ses this has a 8% drop from HH (headless horseman) iv seen this drop 4 times with my rogue well looking for the pet first 1 that droped i won lol. oh 1 more thing wowwiki ses that HH can be raided in a max grp of 25 ppl but iv only bin in 3 10-man raids lol.
Basically a Permanent version of Weighted Jack-o-Lantern
This item is no longer just for fun, it now also has a use.
It is part of an achievement.
Violetta is right, i can confirm this, just check the screenshots of the item, i putted one myself. This item drops from Trick or Treat to any Innkeeper, and probably the Sinister Squashling may also drop.
I'll just wanna say that I got this as loot in my treatbag from an innkeeper just 5 min ago, I was a little bit suprised when my Sinister Calling achivement flashed before my eyes. I'm so happy hehehe
trick or treat now offers this item too... finally
in response to loria, you only need one mask, the 20 mask achievement is being taken out next patch
The sinister squashling cannot be obtained through the Trick or Treating. Can anyone confirm?
Hoping to snag this in a bag or off the HH. Its all i need left for the title. But i have had no luck so far.
Wicked helm! i got it in a Treat Bag that i got from the inn keeper in Undercity :D love it 20/20 Duro though gets damaged real easy! 3 armor :P
sooo i utterly hated this helm because my lvl1 bank got 3 of the helms and my other toons didn't get one
A guy on my server named Tomar, puts this on every night and runs around with this and the Picolo of Flaming Fire.
he wears nothing but a Loin cloth and these Items.
ive yet to find out why, but it proves that alot of people use this item even when not in Season.
it is a very fun helm, and i cannot wait to obtain it when Hallows End comes around!
what's the point of this helm when we have the jack'o'lanterns? :P
oh, i know what's the point. this helm lasts forever, and the lanterns dont :]
I know everyone thinks the achievment Sinister Calling is hard - but as of October 2nd 09 i just checked
this helm is 1% from a Treat bag and the same with the pet
This helm is now 7% from mr. Horse man and 5% for the pet from mr. Horseman
Edit: Typos and Mistakes
Sorry to lecture you but "hallow's End" comes from the proper pagan festival called "old hallows eve" which became comercialised and called "halloween" so nothing to do with being holy and what not.
unless there's some glitch you're finding yourself in, you cannot trade the hallowed helm and get the credit. I just tried it yesterday on an alt (one wasn't doing the achievement for and 3 squashlings and a helm dropped, talk about irony), and even put it on, but there was no indication of the achievement requirement being earned. So in reality, I think the helm may just be worse than the squashling since if someone fudges up and accidentally needs on it even though he has the achievement, there is no going back.
You do NOT need to win the roll, you can trade it to everyone in your group. In order to get credit for it you need to exit the insance and enter back.
correct. I just tried this, about 2 minutes ago, and it did
You do need to
Although, it's probably a good idea to ask first, who wants it for the achievement, and who wants it to have a pumpkin on their head. I've seen it like... 4 times (in seperate runs), and haven't won it ONCE.
: After about 15 kills, we've seen it 3 times. Along with 1 Squashling pet. Thankfully, both my alts got the helm, earning them both the "Hallowed Be Thy Name" title, and getting angry glares from my room mate. (Also cleared up some hazy text and fixed typos).
~ Cheers! (and good luck)
Pretty lame you need to rely on RNG to get the achievement done as none of the other holidays have really worked that way for the meta.
You must be new to WoW.
comes to mind.
Yes all I need is the Helm also and this idea of just luck to win something is terrible.
The drop rate is horrible and that people who already has the item can roll on it is even worse. This should not be able to get looted from someone who has it in his inventory or bank. I also need this to finish the meta, but so far I haven't seen it in any treat bag nor won the roll.
Holy &*!@ ! It's the Horseless Headman !
This is horrible the helm has dropped 2 times in 40+ runs ived been in and only 1 pet...
ived been doing trick'otreat ever hour on the hour and ived gotten nothing... t
if i dont get my meta because of this broken blizzard bull%^&* im done with this game... this is retarded.
Now I'm confused about trading it to everyone in said grp. Now to trade it an get it you have to leave the instance then come back in?
You can trade the Squashling, but apparently not the Helm. I had both traded to me inside the instance. I have credit for the pet but not the helm. This needs to be changed imo.
It hasn't dropped off of the horsemen in 5 days... I'm getting anxious.
"There's a hole for your head...and other things too."
im getting worried been trying for this for 2 years do the dailies every day trick or treat at least 13 times a day and do HH at least 4 times a day and i havent even seen this or the mount only 3 days left if i dont get it in 2 years there is gonna be a complaint.
ok so its the last day of hallows end and im not happy with the fact that i've pulled 6 god damn pets out of trick or treat bags this year since i've had the pet since last and since the halloed helm is the last thin i need and seems like i wont get getting a violet proto this year because of $%^&ty drop rates bs achievement gg blizz
so just did hh and no hallowed hell so $%^& off blizz now i get to wait another year for my proto yay
This Helm is the bane of existence for many WoW players.....
It only strengthen's my belief that there is a masochist of significant influence working among the blizzard quest/achievment programmers.
I recommend they be weeded out and proclaimed a heretic and be burned at the stake.
Hallowed helm is locking good with Haliscan Jacket and Haliscan Pantaloons:
I'm have uploaded a screenshot with this "set". Hope it's apper here in short time:
Possibly a reference to the pilot of "Babylon 5":
"There's a hole in your mind..."
when i was level 12 i got this helm... i did'nt realise how good it was... and i sold it =(
Armor has gone from 3 to 12, after the infamous patch 4.0.
(Posting as a reply to the first comment to increase visibility for patch 4.0/2010 version)
Just like the change to ahune and other holiday events, you can loot one bag from the horseman per day. Subsequent runs in the same day are pointless to obtain either the helm, the mount, or the pet. But they are good if you want the epic rings, pumpkins to put on the heads of other races (for
), or more tricky treats (for
You now have a chance to loot the helm from the item that you receive upon your first kill of the horseman everyday during the Hallows event.
Seems it has a nice healthy drop rate this year. 7% is pretty high compared to some holiday items.
For every other World Event so far this year, Blizzard has taken these "rare drop" pets and items and made them obtainable through some kind of
through a vendor, or removed the item from the meta-achievement requirements, or BOTH. So, why they decided not to make some kind of "Hallow's End" currency/vendors for this stuff
is beyond me
. It would have saved SOOOO much frustration for so many players!
I got this helm from last year, but I don't get credit for Sinister Calling this year.
Should I delete it?
Btw I just get it from the Treat Bag on another toon.
Edit: I get the helm again and need to delete the helm from last year to get credit.
I've been trying to get the helm on my 80 since the first day of the holiday this year, and nothing so far. It's the last thing I need to get the title. So frustrating!
I keep seeing this RNG term used. What's it stand for? *feels like a retard* --Anjalena
Don't downrank this, it's a legitimate question; it directly impacts her ability to understand the information given in the posts she was replying to. She even admitted that she felt bad for not knowing the answer. As the great American philosopher once
once said: "Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects." The next time you want to punish somebody for asking questions, think of all the things that you still don't know and wonder how much of it you'd ever learn if someone punished you every time you tried to ask a question.
Last... thing... I need... before... I... get... Hallowed title...

this is a reference to a youtube video i believe, not quite sure.
can't wait for transmogrification for this baby! say hello to my new raiding helm :D
NEED for transmog!
I don't think this item will be able to be transmoged.
Can be purchased with 150 Tricky Treat.
This helm can now be bought with 2011 year's Hallowed End's currency
. The price is 150 treats.
Just looted this from a 'Handful of Treats'. Nice that it doesn't just drop from the Halloween dungeon daily.
EXTREMELY SUPER COMMON in trick-or-treating in Candy Basket things. PLEASEEEE be reasonable and don't purchase it for the 150 currency unless for some reason you honestly cannot get rng to work with you.
Doing Cata-Northerend candy baskets alone, I swear, I deleted atleast 10.
Got 5 of these while looting every bucket in the game (and 6 squatchlings). The achievement is way easier now than then.
On a side note, does wearing this protect me from endermen?
I have about 40 of these (1 one each of 10 toons then about 4 in the bags that won't disappear unless I delete them) I wish blizz would make it stop dropping (same as pet) after you already have it on that toon.
Look you dont have to buy it or get it dropped from the scarlet monestary you can just keep going to the Jack-o-Lanterns in the inns around the place and just keep trying to get it. thats how my characters have got it
I have it, and i LOVE IT
just got off the phone with Blizzard and this item was stopping me from having my race change finalize. Not even joking on this one.
be used for transmogrification. I've tried it today and I it did not work, unfortunately...
can u transmog this head?
is it xmoggable
This helm needs to become transmogrifiable. Blizzard, hear my plea !
In 2014, ignore the drop rate from
replaced it. You have a very good chance the Hallowed Helm will drop for you during the event if you are either doing the Headless Horseman event every day or farming many
Blizzard shouldn't make this transmoggable, they should turn it into a toy that gives you a 1 hour buff like the
instead, like a permanent toy version that doesn't take up bag space.
This item would have been more awesome if it was truly transmoggable... I mean, come on! The helmet of the horseman can be transmogged, why can't this?
@ 20-29 bracket (Ilvl 34) scales to 8 Armor.
@ 10-19 bracket (Ilvl 24) scaling is not known. Please comment.
Thanks to Hashbrowns @
(20-29 Gear Scaling Index) for the 20-29 scaling.
It is "Cosmetic" now and can be transmogrified by anyone.
Just got it on my monk and was able to transmogrify it.
So today is 10/19/2017 and the hallows end event is going on, but im able to tmog this helm. Idk if thats a temporary thing or if its finally tmoggable, thought id contribute and see if anyone else knows anything about this
elder nightsaber need hallowed helm
Note that while the
of this appearance onto another helm only works
during the Hallow's End event
, you can
this item for the visual effect
all year long
. Right-clicking wont work because the use effect teaches you the appearance, so just drag it to your head slot. That's not useful for combat of course, and keeping it takes up another bag/bank slot, but around town it's what we all did before transmogrification was introduced in patch 4.3.
