World of Warcraft Hallow's Eve 2021: Start Date, Times, Cosmetics & More

Once again it's the time of year where we start to look towards the Hallow's Eve event in World of Warcraft. The annual Halloween event brings us brand new pets, cosmetics, mounts, transmogs and much more!

The appeal of the event is aided by the fact that much of the content is only available during the two-week event. Nothing gets players interested like limited-time content!

In WoW canon, Hallow's Eve is the celebration of the end of the harvest season but also a nod to the date that the Forsaken were freed from the control of the nefarious Lich King.

Hallow's Eve Start Date

Last year, Hallow's Even began on 18 October and ended on 1 November. We expect the 2021 edition to use similar dates if not exactly the same.

Again, we expect the event to last for two weeks which would make the exact dates Monday, 18 October to Monday, 1 November.


Content for Shadowlands and Classic / TBC

Content for Hallow's Eve will come not only to the more recent version of Wow but also the Classic / TBC servers although likely not to the same degree.

Players from Shadowlands can expect the full experience including new quests, achievements, cosmetics, mounts, pets and much more. The Shade of the Horseman event could also return which was a random real-time event.

Each hour, a Shade of the Horseman would attack Goldshire, Kharanos or Azure Watch for Alliance players. Horde players would need to keep an eye on Razor Hill, Falconwing Square or Brill.

During the attack, you can try and reduce the amount of damage and destruction carried out by the Horseman. If successful, you can earn special gifts with Hallow's Eve themed rewards.

For those of you in Classic / TBC servers, new quests and content will be available but don't expect things to get too out of hand. Unique loot may be available from certain high-level monsters but this is yet to be confirmed.
