Bring me his head... and those wands




It's that time again.   Hollow's End.    Tricks and treats,  masks and ghoulish delights.

But how do I make money on this?    Isn't that what always runs through our auction house dominated mind?  Show me the money.

We'll look at three ways to make money with Hollow's End.


Gimme Candy


There are candy stations at different points around Kalimdor,  Eastern Kingdoms,  Outlands and Northrend.   There are also changes to previous stations as well as additional stations.  Each stop
nets you 8g 27s plus a handful of treats.   It's the handful of treats where you can obtain the wands used for the next money making section.



Show me Your Wand


The money making opportunities circle around the achievement The Masquerade

You have different types of wands that will show up as you go through your trick and treats
over the holiday. (see the previous section).   Each wand has 5 charges that are cast on other players.   As the holiday goes on you will have more and more people looking to buy charges to finish up their achievement.    Don't be afraid to advertise that you have individual charges to sell.  Look for between 5g and 15g per charge depending on the "rarity" of the wand and also how much longer the warcraft holiday has to go.

Quests?   We Need Quests? 

With the new holiday, there is a new hub of quests in Undercity for the Horde,  and Stormwind for the Alliance.   The quests include desecrating the opposite sides wicker man, stink bombing the enemy's capital city,  and a chain quest that will reward you with a new companion pet.   Each of these legs include gold rewards at maximum level of 10-16g per turnin.   Included are feeder quests in the major cities as well as the normal headless horseman/water dousing quest in Brill or Goldshire depending on your Race.

I've included links to the achievements on wowhead.com.    All of them include a list of the coordinates
to find each of the inns.  Both for the achievement,  as well as some unlisted ones for bonus cash
and wands.

Don't forget to keep the candies to turn in for items this year.    It's candy,   everyone likes candy.

  1. Or you could just buy the wands from the vendor for 2 tricky treats each, way easier than flying around and hoping for the correct one to drop.

  2. I'm surprised you didn't list the first money maker I thought of. When you defend a town against the Headless Horseman you get Weighted Jack-o'-Lanterns. These are needed for the achievement Check Your Head. They are also able to be traded or listed on the auction house.

    Given that it will take multiple days of saving a town to get enough pumpkins, many will resort to buying off the AH. So if you have some stashed away from a previous year, now is the time to sell.

    Wands couldn't be used on self. could only be used on party members.
    And I had enough problems getting enough tricky treats to get everything I wanted from the vendor. Wanted the tiny wicker and the cat.

    @Thayer

    Your absolutely right. I should have mentioned the water run. I think they made that more difficult this year. I remember in years past being able to do it with 3-4 people. I saw 6 people working together and it still failed. Lots more places they had to dump water on.
