Holiday Achievements

Postby Dane » Sun Dec 14, 2008 12:52 pm

So...Feast of Winter Vail is coming up, and I plan on pursuing the Achievement, mostly so I can get the mount in a year or so. (No, I don't plan on running around as "Daain, the Merrymaker.")

One of the things you have to do is get 50 HKs while disguised as a Helper.

I'm planning on doing this in the BG's, but I'm wondering, does anyone know if the effect persists through death? Anyone able to think of a better way to do this? (Keep in mind, I'm on a PvE server.)

On a similar note, anyone have any ideas how the hell to do the Orphan's Week achievement for HK's on a PvE server? The only thing I can think of is to pull my Orphan out in a BG, and hope everyone else does as well, just to help each other out.

If the disguise is anything like G.N.E.R.D.S, they will not persist through death - but the nice thing is, you don't need KBs for the achievement, just HKs. So any BG is fine and you can just absorb local HKs for the achievement without having to break your back to get the last hit in.

And, yes, people will run around with their orphans all over the place when the time comes.

If they are just HK's, just go to wintergrasp during a round. You can get a bucket of HK's by manning a cannon and be pretty safe from reprisal.

I'm right there with you.

On the other hand, it should be a breeze now, right? Even at 70, since 3.0...At least, I should think so.

Except it'll take some convincing to get 2-3 people to help you summon the boss.

The Abominable Greench is almost impossible to tag at the moment because of the slow spawn timer and the sheer number of people camping it. I wouldn't like to see what it's like on a pvp server...


Also: someone stole all our server's Undead Rogues.

For the snowflakes?

When the holiday event is nearing a close, I'll just create alts on my wifes and my accounts for what we need, and take turns sprinkling them.

Cheap? Sure. But effective too.

Myself and a friend are getting our HKs by killing 72's in Dragonblight. It's much safer and easier than doing it in a BG. Finally a benefit (to me) for being on a PvP server.

iunno about ganking lowbies, but I joined an AV and there was all-out war in the Field of Strife. Got the achievement done in a minute helping out the mass mayhem with heals and dispels then went and tanked Vanndar and 3 lieutenants O.o

But yah, costume doesn't persist through death.

Wintergrasp turrets = Plenty of HKs with relatively low chance of dying.
