AAAH

The thunderous sounds of the Headless Horseman’s approach grow louder by the day. The Heroes of the Storm Hallow’s End event is nearly upon us!

OOOOH SCARY! I may be a wuss, but hot damn am I down for some Halloween action, particularly in Blizzard’s MOBA. There’s a bunch of new bonuses and cosmetics on the way to the Nexus, including the following:

New Mount and Skin

  • Headless Horseman’s Charger Mount
  • Buccaneer Falstad Skin

Week-long Bonus XP Event

  • Starting at 10:00 a.m. PDT on October 27 and ending at 10:00 a.m. PST on November 3, games played that award XP will grant an additional 50% in all regions.

Jack-O’-Lantern Portrait

  • Play 25 games during the Hallow’s End event to earn the new “Jack-O’-Lantern” portrait.
  • This event will persist until November 17.
  • Event progress can be tracked through an Event Quest in your quest log.

I for one, would never say no to bonus XP, and the Hallow End Event will be providing an additional and rather juicy 50% extra for the whole week! Thanks to that, the coins will be flying into my purse a lot faster, though I’ll have to pull out some real money if I want to buy the following bundles:

Hallow’s End Ultimate Bundle – $53.04 USD

  • Kerrigan
  • Countess Kerrigan Skin
  • Abathur
  • Skelethur Abathur Skin
  • Falstad
  • Buccaneer Falstad Skin
  • Headless Horseman’s Charger Mount
Read  The next three Steam Sale dates have leaked

Hallow’s End Bundle – $21.35 USD

  • Falstad
  • Buccaneer Falstad Skin
  • Headless Horseman’s Charger Mount

According to NecruN in the comment section of the announcement post, the Ultimate Bundle is actually quite the deal:

Kerrigan = $8.49
Countess Kerrigan Skin = $9.99
Abathur = $9.99
Skelethur Abathur Skin = $9.99
Falstad = $8.49
Buccaneer Falstad Skin = $9.99
Total = $56.94
Hallow’s End Ultimate Bundle – $53.04
$56.94 – $53.04 = $3.9
so you are saving $3.9 and getting a mount for free!!!

Still, $53.04 for a bunch of cosmetics? Look Blizzard, I love you and everything, but that’s just a little bit too expensive for my liking! Can’t we just pretend this is Christmas, meaning you give me all of the above for free instead? No? Fine!

At least there’s a “free” portrait up for grabs. All it requires is a casual grind of playing 25 games in three weeks. Thanks to the power of maths, I’ve calculated that that’s a little over a game a day, which shouldn’t be a tall ask considering that a typical round in Heroes of the Storm is normally quick.

What do you think about the event? Are you excited to join in on the festivities? Will you be buying any of the bundles?

    From reddit:https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthestorm/comments/3pwoik/psa_how_to_get_the_hallows_end_ultimate_bundle_at/

    With
    Blizzard’s recent release of sale schedule, I’ve been amused to see
    some of the rather strange decisions Blizzard has made regarding
    differing discount rates between bundles. Because of these strange
    decisions, you can receive every item in the Hallow’s End Ultimate Bundle for less than $53.04

    I’ll show the math.

    The total undiscounted price of the items in the Hallow’s End
    Ultimate Bundle is $66.98 (this is assuming the headless horseman’s
    charger and buccaneer falstad skin are released at $10 standalone). The
    discounted rate of the bundle is $53.04, coming to roughly a 20.75%
    discount.

    Now let’s take a look at the normal Hallow’s End Bundle. This bundle,
    including falstad, buccaneer falstad, and the headless horseman’s
    charger (once again assuming both sell at $10) sells at $28.49 without
    discount. Blizzard’s listed bundle price is $21.35, making for a 25%
    discount.

    If you were to buy the first Hallow’s End bundle first at the 25%
    rate, then buy the ultimate Hallow’s End Bundle at the 20.75% discount
    rate factoring in the reduction in price due to dynamic bundling, you
    will be paying only $51.85 for the whole bundle.

    But that’s not all. Abathur is on sale the same week as the
    bundles. Abathur is on sale at 50% standalone, with his price at $4.99.
    If you were to buy abathur first at 50% off, then buy the hallow’s end
    bundle, then buy the Ultimate Hallow’s End Bundle, you will be paying a
    total of $48.92, $4.12 less than what you would pay normally (I’d show
    the math, but it gets a bit messy in post format). I know it’s not a
    whole lot, but for some it may be the difference between buying and not.
    Also, I’m hoping Blizzard sees this post and realizes that the bigger
    bundle should probably be at a higher discounted rate than the smaller
    ones. Just seems like common sense to me.

    I won’t get into whether these prices are fair or not, but I do
    believe strongly that people shouldn’t have to pay more than they need
    to! I hope you enjoy that extra $4.12 in your abathur symbiote hat fund.
