    Halloween is coming!

    The WoW Halloween holiday starts on Monday which means the Headless Horseman is coming to town! What does this mean for you? Time to make some money, of course. Here's what we can expect from killing the Headless Horseman:

    - An extremely easy fight, similar to Coren Pinata

    - An iLevel 200 ring to drop for the group to roll

    - Something similar to and a bit of gold the first time you queue. This is where you will get your chance at the , and, most importantly,

    - Last year, he also dropped the and the (they also appeared in the ). This year, he may drop them, they may be in the once-daily treasure chest or the or any combination of those three. However, we don't care, we just want money.

    -Finally, you can expect everyone in your group to promptly drop, leaving you alone in the Scarlet Monastery Graveyard. This is where the potential for money starts.

    What we are really looking for here, however, are chests. The chests found in the Scarlet Monastery are of the correct level to contain many of the rare vanilla patterns we have listed here. As I have recently learned, many people farm the Scarlet Monastery for these chests. Many of you will only be able to profit from the chests that aren't locked. Rogues should be set. Blacksmiths and Engineers, this is your fair warning, make a stack of keys or seaforium so you can get those locked chests. So, take the extra minute after killing the Horseman for your chance at the rare pattern lottery. Happy hunting!

    Are the chest loot drop from the boss you mentioned, trash loot or just lying around in the instance?

    Just the ones lying around the instance. If memory serves, there are a couple possible spawn points back toward the entrance of the instance where all the Scarlet Crusade guys are. I don't know of any in the mausoleums or open area, but I'll be looking for them.

    I ran the dungeon three times last night and didnt see the rare spawns but I also didnt see the two bosses either so I am not sure it is possible to see the rare spawns. I did find two chest per run, one was usually locked (courtyard) and one unlocked (inside building). No worthwhile loot

    It does look like they emptied out the instance. So, there are no mobs, but that just removes distractions. I managed to go in without my keys on my blacksmith yesterday so I didn't test any chests. Hopefully someone here benefits from the idea, however.

    Good ideas. I haven't thought of any ways to really profit though.

    Except 2 of the 4 characters I ran it with last night got the mount from the bag back-to-back. Of course none were my main, so that's fitting.

    I got the Reigns last night on my main... first time I've ever seen it drop in 3 years. Another guildie got it as well. I think they upped the drop rate. Once I'm done with the Weighted Jack O Lanterns achievement, I'm going to start selling them.

    Also if you get any of the wands, people will pay you 5-10g just to use the wands on them.

    I'm convinced I will get the mount on every toon that I run through HH, except my main. I recently ran ZG for the first time with my pally and the raptor dropped. I have the brewfest kodo on two alts. 2x

    I am hopeful that I will be able to get something good from the chests in the instance, however. For any blacksmiths that need to make keys for the locked chests, wowhead.com is incorrect. There are some notes there that say silver keys will work. They most definitely do not. I ended up making because you get 10 keys for 4 bars, which was the most bang for the buck.

    I felt like that with the Ram on brewfest, finally got it last day on my main. Got the HH reigns first run and cackled manically.

    Thanks for the tip on the keys, I'll hammer out a few on my Smith later for my alts (main being a rogue)

    FYI - keys can only be used my blacksmiths...I guess you need to be pretty smart to put a key into a lock and turn it
