The subject of this article or section is part of Hallow's End, a seasonal event that lasts two weeks. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

Under the effects of Spearmint.


Soothing Spearmint Candy is one of the random drops from [Handful of Treats] during the Hallow's End event. A Handful of Treats can be obtained by looting the Candy Buckets during the associated quest or in a Inv misc gift 05 [Crudely Wrapped Gift] after freeing a town from the Shade of the Horseman.

The Spearmint is also sold by Official alliance mini-icon Dorothy and Official horde mini-icon Chub for 2 Achievement halloween candy 01.



Note that this section refers to the spell power buff that is no longer available.

The duration of this item was hotfixed during the 2008 Hallow's End event, and was increased from 1 day to 14 days.

However, prior to the hotfix, the duration of multiples of this item was determined by the first one obtained (the shortest remaining duration) after which they would disappear and the duration would reset for additional ones obtained. The system did not track individual candies from the stack, so had no way of knowing that you ate the oldest one and did not extend the timer when one was consumed. Basically, the clock started when you received your first one, and did not reset until they disappeared or you had consumed them all.

This aspect of how the item works has not changed. Your stack of these will still be treated as a lump that all expire at the same time. In fact, by trading all of your candies to another player and getting new ones from a Handful of Candy, your old candies' expiration timers will be set to equal the timers on your new candy when they are traded back to you.

This item does not bind and can be transferred. However, due to the timer issues already noted, this means that when you obtain one from another source, your whole combined stack will likely obtain the shortest remaining lifetime.

The effect of this item stacks 4 times and has a duration of 30 minutes

Patch changes

Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.2.2 (30-August-2011): Stat bonus removed; cosmetic effect added.
Patch 3.0.2 ?? changed:

  • Use: Increases healing done by magical spells by up to 11 for 30 min.
  • Use: Increases spell power by 11 for 30 min.

Although the new wording is similar to the new wording for [Pyroblast Cinnamon Ball] the two buffs can both be applied simultaneously to the same character and appear to stack.
