How I hate the RNG.

Today is Wednesday. Five days after the launch of the Hallows End event. I have been part of no less than 45 Headless Horseman kills. I have trick-or-treated once per hour every non-working hour, including getting out of bed in the middle of the night, and hearthing away from raids to trick-or-treat then be summoned back to complete the raid. I have not seen a single drop of the Sinister Squashling. I did much the same last year. In two years, my relationship with the RNG has not improved. I fear I will finish this years event with still no pet. I never really tried for the What a long strange trip it has been achievement, mostly because I planed a romantic get-away with the wife during duration of one of the in-game holidays (I know, why oh why did real life trump a game?) that made the achievement impossible last year, but this year I want to complete it.

Every day when I am online, I see 3-5 guild members with the achievement pop up exclaiming they received the squashling, as well as completing Hallowed Be Thy Name meta achievement. Including one group that I just missed out on joining who saw 4 out of 5 Headless Horseman kills yield a Squashling.

That is why I hate the RNG.
