The best moment to obtain the rare World of Warcraft Headless Horseman’s mount

Blizzard has made it easier for World of Warcraft players to get the Headless Horseman’s Mount. But there’s a catch – these better odds only apply to the first daily defeat of the Headless Horseman, and your chances go up even more if you can get rid of the Horseman’s “curses” before the battle.

The Headless Horseman is a famous baddie in World of Warcraft. He used to be a good guy with the Scarlet Crusade but got cursed and turned into the Headless Horseman after he died. He thinks he’s alive, and everyone else is a zombie. Beating him can score you cool loot like rings, a sword, and his helmet. But what most players really want is to snag his awesome mount.

Blizzard’s community manager, Kaivax, says that if you can break the curses during your first daily fight, you’ll have a better shot at getting the Headless Horseman’s Mount from the Loot-Filled Pumpkin you get when you win.
