    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]

    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.

      You did the same thing last year, it was badly received, so this year you doubled down on the same idea and made it worse

       

      Except it wasn't. The negative reception last year was exclusive to the reward system, while reception to the actual fight itself was amazing. Go check out the thread if you'd like. Here you have a number of people being outraged over us not "listening to feedback", but it seems to me some of you may not be understanding the concept of feedback. I have taken the time to read your complaints, I'm most definitely listening to what you have to say, but I regret to say I disagree with the statements you're making. None of the suggestions presented in these comments would fix the perceived "issues" that are being pointed out.

      Events should be inclusive for everyone.

      Just going to have to agree to disagree. As I mentioned in my last post, I do believe most events should be all-inclusive, but we most certainly will explore some event ideas that will cater to our more experienced players from time to time. Far as I remember, the Twisted Trickster King is the first piece of event content that breaks the mold, and our experienced players are loving it. Yes, this particular part of Halloween is not as accessible for newer players as our other events, but the original design behind it was to cater to the veteran players specifically. There are plenty of other aspects of the Halloween Event all players can participate in. A Tower of Trickery run only requires you to be able to find ONE other player to play with.

      I do not really want to continue with this topic but as a suggestion:

       

      what if the TTK awards were not exclusive to this instance and could be acquired in some other way?


        That would leave the instance running for the enjoyment of those who want but without excluding  anyone from the prizes.

      Such a suggestion would require us to create an entirely new piece of content to add to the event whose sole reason of existing would be to skip the Twisted Trickster King fight.

      Well... I understand. 

      At least I did try XD 

       

      I like the challenge... the problem is this challenge is not including everyone. 

       

      (Only for the record, that does not mean that I'm not including, I have what it takes to do TTK, in my guild I am the only one that plays this instance, all abandoned for the reasons mentioned above)

      I think the event its ok, doing TTK hard only exclude ppl from getting wing. In my opinions thats ok, since not everyone works they butts really hard to get equipment, so is fair to the people that really works hard to get their gears to have some kinda of advantage.

       

      And  i think the problem to not include everyone is in the party leaders, it has always been like that, whenever you want to get an instance is hard to get there if you are not the classes they require, at least in my case, every time i do a party i give a chance to rebellions, mechanics,genetics to work as DPS, and it had work, so its up to the party leader NOT TO THE GMS. I have completed ttk hard almost 50 times already (im grinding to change my wings colors) so, the excuse that not everyone is included is not a problem of the event, its a problem of the people recruiting for partys.

       

      Finally you have to understand that to do TTK hard as DPS you need to be geared at least, so its clear for me that if you havent work to get that kinda of equipment you wont be able to get a party.

       

      EDIT: Just saying, but the events include everyone, since all of you have the chance to get coins, its up to you if you farm or not, and as i said before, wings is a reward for people that has work their but as hell to get gears, its true that some classes doesnt work here, but when you took the decision to play that class you should have know it that is like that in instances and events. My job is not suitable for the event so i just made a RG for the event, is not expensive neither hard to play. So IT IS UP TO YOU if you are willing to play the event or not.

      Suggestion: make Miles the Milliner in the second floor of the main office recognize the colored hats from the Selim's list to could change the position of them. :)
