    Halloween Event

    The Halloween Event has once again begun! Creepy Critters are being spotted all throughout Rune-Midgard and legions of monsters are invading the cities of the world! Defeat them to obtain rewards, including many exclusive headgears. Rumors pass from soul to soul about the one responsible for all of this, the mysterious Trickster King. What terrors will the Trickster King and his army of the dead unleash upon Rune-Midgard? Only time will tell...

     

    Creepy Critters will spawn in most field and dungeon maps. Kill them for Pumpkins and exchange them to the Coffin in Prontera for Halloween Coins. You can also earn Halloween Coins by participating in the town invasions. You can then exchange your Halloween Coins to Loki for either headgears or one of his boxes. Defeat the Trickster King in order to obtain Little Devil Wings and Great Devil Wings. Continue to defeat him for Chromatic Stones, which you can bring to Selim in Prontera for Devil Wing recolors. With so many recolor tasks, Selim has been going around Prontera recruiting new test subjects to help her fulfill her creepy food orders for her loyal clients, the Deadly Sins. And last but not least, the Tower of Trickery makes its return!

     

    The Halloween Event will end on November 7th at 11:59PM [Server Time - PST]

     

     

    Halloween Event

    The event is divided into multiple sections with a wide range of challenges and unique mechanics for all to enjoy! For more information, check our wiki page!

    • Trickster Realm: Visit another world, where you can farm Halloween Coins and Spirit Shards.
    • Mysterious Coffin: Collect Organic Agriculture Pumpkins and Halloween Coins to complete the quest and be rewarded with costumes!
    • Tower of Trickery: Go through a series of mini-games and collect Halloween Coins. You also get a chance at getting unique headgears from completing it!
    • Trickster King: This fight is for the brave and consist of a real challenge! Fighting the King will require a strong team and Spirit Shards from each participating player.
    • Cooking with Selim: Help Selim cook up spooky meals to satiate the hunger of the Hungry Hungry Sins and earn Phantom Favors.
    • Haunted Harvest: Complete a variety of seasonal quests for exclusive costumes, pets and more.
    • Halloween Weeklies: Similar to regular weekly quests, obtain coins and complete Trickster Realm rooms for extra Trick-or-Treat bags.

     

    Currencies:

    • image.pngSpirit Shards: Used to enter the hard Trickster King's Keep (they are obtained from the Twisted Realm).
    • image.png Halloween Coins: Used to purchase several items and hats from Loki.
    • image.png Organic Agriculture Pumpkins: Can be given to the pumpkin-devouring Mysterious Coffin.
    • wyq54e4.png Selim's Paints: Used to recolor various Halloween-themed hats.

     

    Each section of the event has its own unique headgears and costumes attached to it, while Halloween Coins (obtained by participating in any Halloween content) can be exchanged for a shared list of goodies. All the NPCs can be found in Prontera, near @navi prontera 143 171.

    • Loki will exchange your Halloween Coins into items and headgears.
    • Demon Hunter Hector will craft Little Devil Wings and Great Devil Wings, as well as prepare you for the Trickster King's fight!
      • Selim can recolor the wings you obtain through Hector, if you so desire.
    • Mysterious Coffin is a small quest that gives you headgears.
    • Tricky Ghosts generate the Tower of Trickery instance.
    Cooking With Selim
    RkOxKvP.png

    You can find the visiting Selim and her Bad Monkey hanging around on the Hallowed Square (hallohub, 139, 205).

     

    Selim's coloring tasks are eating up her time, so she won't say no if someone were to help her handle the food orders this year. Her most loyal clients, the Deadly Sins, are particularly hungry, because scaring people all the time is draining, and there is a lot of bloodcurdling cooking to be done.


    Every day you will obtain a list of three meals, one main course and two side dishes, so roll up your sleeves, lest Bad Monkey be forced to do the work for you. Additionally, you are to collect Spiritual Seasonings from the parallel world to aid digestion of material particles.


    The finished meals can be brought to spoil any Deadly Sin on your choosing. Through the process of being devoured, they become human and Doram-friendly, and you get a little something for yourself. Return to Selim to get your Phantom Favor. You may also repeat the cooking process as many times as you like.

    Trickster Realm
    300px-Hw_img_06.png

    In any dungeon of field map, you may find a Wandering Spirit which you need to kill. They will remain on the field as an NPC and talking to him will lead you to the Trickster Realm.

    SOF4Oxc.gif

    The Trickster Realm is a small room with various monsters, whose difficulty scales depending on your character's level. These all drop Halloween Coins on death and there's a 5 minutes time limit to clearing the room. You can freely re-enter after death, but so can anyone else who sees the NPC, regardless of their affiliation with you.

     

    When you reach level 175, the Wandering Spirit will open the Twisted Realm instead of the regular Trickster Realm. You'll find harder monsters inside, as well as a chance of meeting a mob that drops a Spirit Shard.

     

    You can lower the difficulty of the Trickster Realm by speaking with Loki and selecting Escape the Twisted Realm. Please note that while this will make the mobs easier, it will also decrease your rewards and make you unable to farm Spirit Shards. You can revert this setting anytime by speaking with Loki once more. 

     

    Twisted Mobs will drop Cookie's Bats, which are used to evolve the Skellion Pet.

    Mysterious Coffin
    vBaZObh.png

    The Mysterious Coffin will exchange 25 Organic Agriculture Pumpkins for 50 Halloween Coins. To begin this quest...

    • Speak with the Mysterious Coffin in the Hallowed Square (@go 54).
    • You will be asked to bring 30 Organic Agriculture Pumpkins and be rewarded with a Costume Executioner Hood.
    • You can now exchange 25 Organic Agriculture Pumpkins for 50 Halloween Coins as many times as you want.
    Tower of Trickery
    hxWBRNb.png

    The Tower of Trickery can be found in the Hallowed Square by talking to Tricky Ghost (hallohub,255,203) and requires a party of 2-4 players.

     

    You have to complete several mini-games within 15 minutes. For each game completed, you're given 5 Halloween Coins. You are also given 100 Halloween Coins as a reward for finishing the whole tower. Every day, the top three fastest parties to clear the tower are placed in the leaderboard and will receive bonus rewards at midnight. The top 3 fastest parties over the course of the entire event will receive exclusive rewards when the event is over. The same party cannot win more than once, however, so if all the top 3 runs have been made by the same group, the 4th and 5th parties will be rewarded instead.

     

    Before starting a game in the Tower of Trickery, you will always be given a choice between the left or right portal. Each one has a different game, so if your party struggles with a specific one, consider simply skipping it. 

    Twisted Trickster King
    GdFxvaM.png

    Freed from his slumber, the Twisted Trickster King has once again made his return!
    Without any power restraints, the regular Trickster King fight is no longer available.


    Adventurers reported hearing strange sounds when entering the Twisted Realm, some of which would remind them of a caw.

     

    Any adventurer who defeats the Twisted Trickster King for the first time ever will obtain the following rewards :

    • King's Crown
    • Achievement containing the following title: Revenant

     
    Regular Drops:

    • Vampire Familiar - 100% drop rate
    • Banshee Master - 20% drop rate
    • Brown Ribbon Scarf - 2% drop rate
    • Black Eremes Scarf - 2% drop rate
    • 5 Cursed Ruby - 100% drop rate

     

    Script Based Drops (Individually rolled):

    • Chromatic Stone - 90% drop rate
    • Great Chromatic Stone - 60% drop rate

     

     Much like last year's Halloween Event, players will be able to craft Little Devil Wings and Great Devil Wings using exclusive drops: King's Essence and King's Stone.

    • Crafting a Little Devil Wings now only costs 6 King's Stones down from 18
    • Crafting a Great Devil Wings now only costs 10 King's Stones down from 30
    • The 3 kill requirement for obtaining King's Stone and King's Essence was reduced to 1.
      • This reward still has a limit of one per day, per account.

     

    Refer to Demon Hunter Hector in the Hallowed Square for more information.
