The only real holiday I enjoy is “Holiday” by Madonna. I suppose that’s not entirely true… but still. The surge of recent holidays in-game is both fun and frustrating at the same time. I’ll review them both quickly with my reasons why I do and do not like them.
1) Pros – Minipets and no requirements for PvP or max level.
2) Cons – Limited egg spawning locations = high competition over just one week duration. Too much reliance on RNG–my paladin opened over 350 eggs and never got a rabbit foot, tuxedo pants, or elegant dress. I gave up on the holiday after foolishly spending hours collecting eggs.
1) Pros – Lots of Minipets! Adorable bastard children everywhere! No RNG.
2) Cons – PvP and dungeon requirements for meta-achievement. If it were simply win or participate in the BGs I would be more satisfied, but because they are asking you to do very specific things that are sometimes easier for one class or one faction than the other(s) it is very annoying.
I’ll spend lots of time getting the mini-pets again this year for Children’s week. Elgar was the only one lucky enough to finish Noblegarden this year, my druid did it last year. And Elgar is the only one to have completed Children’s week as those PvP achievements basically made me want to cry so hard last year. Elgar to this day wears his Patron title because IMO, it was worse than getting Kingslayer.
