Yes, there has. It's even been posted in this thread - multiple times. Since you can't be bothered to scroll up to find it, I shall post the link again.

Then they could atleast state the change they made from 2 other events its a step backwards but i guess you have the mount and dont care ,Where as i and many others have been farming since TBC to get it .

I went through the posts. No need to get nasty.
Missed that one in all the other links.

Wasted some time on low lvls trying it then. Not pleased with that.

I'm really not being nasty, so I apologise if it comes across like that. I can appreciate the disappointment. I'm not sure I'll even bother trying to get the HH mount this year. I think I'll just get too frustrated.

Np m8 ;]
After 3 days doing it with 20 chars, im all ready thinking "why did i want that mount?". I prolly wont use it anyway, bc most of my chars ride/fly one of the panthers. I dont even use Ashes or invincible, which i do have. Its all for the counter and thinking about how much time that eats out of my life, i think i may give it a rest soon...

Its a game ... so it should be fun, but nowadays im more busy with getting stuff than having fun.
Anyway.... if u r going for it; good luck! ;]

Yikes! I definitely wouldn't have the patience on 20 characters! I can't be bothered on my 5 110s! :D

Good luck if you do go for it, and congrats on having Ashes. That's still one of my favourite mounts, and it is still eluding me!
Hey guys!

I just wanted to reiterate what Monqs said for visibility.

Indeed the seasonal mount is only available from the epic-quality box:

However, the epic box is currently the daily reward for level 98+ characters.

Best of luck in your farming!

"Both" -- the rare Loot-FILLED pumpkin is gone. People below 98 will be receiving the Loot-STUFFED pumpkin, those above getting the Loot-FILLED epic pumpkin.
I still believe it to be a communication mistake, maybe it still drops or was unintentionally removed.

Why were the other two events not changed (especially Brewfest, which also happened after 7.2.5, where the new Pumpkin was added)?
There is no logical reason, why the Headless Horsemen's mount should be treated differently. And I highly doubt a dev did purposely not add the Reins into the new Pumpkin, because of a bad day at work, or something.
(I assume the new Pumpkin was actually added to match the equipment droprates with the purple one)

They don't have to explain a change (or a mistake), but in this case it might be appropriate, to avoid confusion.
I dont get it, why make the mount be "gated" behind lvl 98+ ?

The event is from before 2008 (accounding to my achievement it seems), i am sure he always had the chance to drop the mount, so, bet that was a lvl 70+ event back then, so, why change the event drop to 98+ now?

It make less sense aswell, since you guys just gave ppl hope with "we unlocked the event for lvl 23+ aswell, go farm the headless houseman on your alts!", then slap ppl in the face a few day later "btw, you need 98+ to get the mount"...really?

Just seems silly to me, a easy fix is just to make the mount drop from any bag = all will be happy.
btw guys, dont give up. After 10 years and over 1000 kills I finally got it yesterday. So it does actually drop :)

On which character, below or above level 100 (blue or purple pumpkin)?

This one, purple pumpkin.
i wish level 30's who take up a spot and does 0 dps would see this thread
Personally I appreciate the presence of super rare mounts in the game, alongside those that are super easy and kind of hard. Sure it's frustrating, sometimes, but a game with no tough RNG, actually, would be pretty dull. The game of guaranteed drops isn't a game at all - it's just a mundane process of do this, get that. (No fun.)

Definitely I don't think there's any reason to make it accessible to lower level players. You may as well ask why transmog isn't accessible, or certain quests, or any of the other level restrictions in the game. And where is it written that all mounts for all world events should be available for farming at the same level?
