The high-quality latex World of Warcraft masks return, and are ready to order in time for your favorite Halloween party. New in 2009, you can make a splash with the deluxe draenei mask, or tell trick-or-treaters that they are not prepared as Illidan the Betrayer himself. Check out the full catalogue or visit a retailer near you.
If you’re having trouble finding what you’re looking for, we also now have limited mask quantities in the Blizzard Store.
Buying gold makes baby murlocs cry. If that isn’t enough to dissuade you, then check out the informational webpage we put together to make sure everyone has the facts about the negative impact of buying gold and using power-leveling services. Our goal is to shed light on how these companies operate, share some of the measures we’re constantly taking to combat them, raise awareness of the effects these services have on all players — not just the buyers — and help protect members of the community from being targeted by them. So give it a read — it’ll only take a few minutes. And don’t buy gold. Because you wouldn’t want little Murky’s tears on your conscience, would you?
Observed by both the Horde and the Alliance, Hallow’s End is the celebration of the break between the Forsaken and the Scourge. Many tricks and treats await adventurers seeking holiday fun, including defeating the Headless Horseman, visiting inns and cities for fun items such as masks and costumes, and eating way too much candy in one sitting. Hallow’s End begins October 18 and continues until November 2.
For this installment of WoW Stories we’ve found a couple of interesting and touching tales of how their authors were first introduced to the lands of Azeroth. In World of Warcraft, the adventures begin in vastly different ways from person to person. Check out how such adventures took shape for two of your fellow players.
If you’re inspired by these stories and want to share your own, don’t forget to head over to our submission page. We’ve quickly dipped into autumn and are looking for some wonderful stories to help usher in the transformative season with its celebrations of festive holidays. We’d love for you to share with the community your World of Warcraft experiences.

The Royal Photographic Society of Azeroth is renewing its competition in celebration of Halloween. In a longstanding Blizzard Entertainment tradition, this year we’re proud to announce our seventh annual pumpkin-carving contest.
Between 12:00 a.m. PDT on October 13 and 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 28, the RPSA will be accepting submissions for the pumpkin contest. The shutterbugs who submit the most outstanding photos of their work will have their pictures proudly displayed on WorldofWarcraft.com and Blizzard.com on Halloween. In addition, the crafters of the five most interesting, original, and well-carved pumpkin designs will each be recognized for their merits with a 32 GB iPod touch! Special thanks go out to Apple for this fantastic prize!
Pumpkin submission tips:
The winning entries will display high levels of originality, craftsmanship, and possibly humor.
Your pumpkin must be lit up by a candle or other light source in your photo entry. You can show another photo of the pumpkin unlit if you wish.
Pumpkins must be related to World of Warcraft or another Blizzard Entertainment title.
Try to take the best picture possible, as picture quality helps make a good impression on the judges.
Make sure you tell us what the pumpkin is supposed to be in the caption, just in case it’s not clear.
