    Halloween Event

    The Halloween Event has 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. He is back, and he is more powerful than ever! With this new power come greater rewards! 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. And last but not least the Tower of Trickery makes its return with a variety of new challenges inside, defeat it multiple times to earn the Broom Riders and Night Spell sets!

     

    The Halloween Event will end on November 4th at 11:59PM [Server Time - PST]

    • Town Invasion: Gain Halloween Coins.
    • Mysterious Coffin: Collect Organic Agriculture Pumpkins and Halloween Coins to complete the quest and exchange 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!

    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 Pumpkins: Can be given to the Mysterious Coffin.

     

    Each section of the games have their own unique headgears and costumes, while Halloween Coins (obtained by playing any game) 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 the Little Devil Wings and the Great Devil Wings, as well as preparing you for the Trickster King's fight!
      • Selim will recolor the wings you get from Hector, if you so desire.
    • Mysterious Coffin is a small quest that gives you headgears.
    • Tricky Ghost generates the Tower of Trickery instance.
    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 actually 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, their 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 having 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 this will make the mobs easier, decrease your rewards and you will not be able to farm Spirit Shard either. You can revert this setting by speaking with Loki once more. 

    Town Invasion

    Every now and then, a town will be invaded! The invasion progresses as follow:

    • You will get a 2-minute warning.
    • Mobs will appear throughout the indicated map, these will drop Halloween Coins. There will also be multiple Wandering Spirits spawning.
    • Another wave of monsters will spawn after a few minutes.
    • After 5 minutes, the Tricker's King will appear. Killing him will reward you with Halloween Coins if you are within its range. MVPer has a chance to get the Costume Witch's Hat.
    • You have 20 minutes to kill this MVP.
    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 Prontera, near the bottom left of the fountain.
    • 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 Prontera by talking to Tricky Ghost (prontera,162,185) and requires a party of 2-4 players.

     

    You have to complete several minigames within 15 minutes. For each game completed, you're given 3 Halloween Coins. You are also given 120 Halloween Coins as a reward for finishing the whole tower. The top three fastest parties to clear the tower are placed in the leaderboard and will receive exclusive rewards after 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 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. Here's a list of all the minigames and some tricks to help you go through them more easily.

      @NovaAfter testing how the new SLS Union skill , I must say you have made it worse.

       

      You must haven't thought about the situation when we need change from union state to normal state !when soloing! . I do this change when I need to use heat. Now, since you made the skill only be granted during link, I cant use the skill to cancel union unless I am able to get a new link .  Yes, I only need to cancel the union occasionally, but I would like to still have that option.  

       

      I dont know if your intention was just  fixing the Union's  lvling bug or what. if yes , the fix just make me :th_e1:/wah/e28

      This is how the skill works, if you want to disable it in the middle of anything, cast lv5 spirit after use union and the skill will be there until the link expires.

      While we generally agree with the sentiment, you also need to understand that we cannot design literally every piece of content to be all inclusive.
      We strive towards including as many players as possible in most of our events, as displayed by the design philosophy behind the Summer Festival, the Tower of Trickery, Creepy Critter hunting and even the Twisted/Trickster Realm.

      Our long-time players deserve new and exciting experiences as much as the next guy, and this is a Ragnarok Online server after all. While mini-games with completely unique gameplay such as those displayed in the Summer Festivals are fun to play, it would be a wasted opportunity to not explore event ideas revolving around the actual gameplay of Ragnarok Online.

      In addition to all of this, the rewards behind the Twisted Trickster King are purely cosmetic, you are not missing out on a best in slot piece of equipment by being unable to participate, and if you're a new player, you will have another opportunity to obtain these items next year.

      I'm all for making room for new players, and again, if you take a look at the design behind the event overall, you will find that the majority of it is newbie-friendly.
      I will not starve my players from challenging custom content just because some people dislike a challenge.

      I understand the idea, I started saying that I like the difficult, just to be clear about that. 

       

      But I also have conflicting feelings about that, I think the instance its great because of the difficult and I enjoy that, but that makes it exclusive too, and that Its what I dont like. 

       

      But I understand your point ...

       

      Just please dont think costumes are not important for players just because are cosmetic stuff.

      We care about that too much, u can see it just comparing the prices of some costumes to the equipement prices, and pple pay for that, and pple will play the event for that cosmetics things. 

       

      Just to finish the idea, I understand pple needs challenges. I just think the entire format of the event could be a little bit more friendly with everyone. 

       

      Anyway thanks I'll try to enjoy it.

      Please up the spawn rate in mid and upper gramps. Mid gramps spawn rate is horrific. I dunno if the maps just too big or what, but its like 1-2 mobs every 50 feet. I've run both a few times now and its a complete bummer to play due to the low spawns. I honestly feel like you could kill the tatacho 10x faster on their actual map than in the gramps map. Plus the arclouse in mid gramps is horrible. Makes it a nightmare for tankers to pull mobs for the group due to the ridiculous movement speed/attack speed/hit rate., and theyre also REALLY hard to click on due to their size, speed, and blending in with the map colors

       

      Also, you forgot to even mention where to go to do any of the Halloween events. Since these arnt official quests, I cant just go check irowiki or something

      I understand your point that Nova cannot design literally every piece of content to be all inclusive. Like I said many times earlier, difficulties is not really a major issue. The bigger issue is certain skill restriction and LFM being discriminative towards other classes other than Cat, WL, RG and Mins. And forming our own party doesn't completely solve that issue. While I agree that the incentives behind TTK are purely cosmetics, I would argue that this is the ONLY motivation behind doing the event. Although costume may be optional and will not affect gameplay, I believe the impact of costume in NovaRO is quite significant. Looking at market history, we can see a lot of people are willing to invest in those costumes. In addition, TTK rewards us with a garment-slot costume, which is really scarce in Nova. The concept of the event is great itself but I wish all players have an equal opportunity to enjoy the event, thus why I proposed an alternative method of obtaining King's Essence and Stone. But ultimately you are the one who runs the server, we as players can only give feedback and suggestion on area of improvement. Anyway, thanks for reading this I suppose I can only do this much.

      They are in the middle of Prontera, this could of simply been asked in-game via #main. Not to mention The notes specify that the coffin and Selim are both in Prontera right next to any other NPC involved with HW.

       

      We'll make sure to make it more clear next time, apologies!

      If you need a guide there is last year guide on novawiki that you can use. I'll just link it here https://www.novaragnarok.com/wiki/Trickster_King's_Invasion_(2017_Halloween). If you just type novaro trickster king on your search engine you could find those easily, it might not be official but novawiki have several guides for those. And as @Panicmentioned, I'm pretty sure everyone would have answered if you asked in #main.
