    Nights of the Dead has been activated on Test server!

    Goblins and ghoulies emerge from the dark crevices across Norrath in celebration of Nights of the Dead!

    Whether you’re digging up a ghoulish good time in your favorite city, hunting ghosts in Antonica, or the Commonlands, setting up trick-or-treat stations in Freeport or Qeynos, or investigating any of the other haunted locations on this mortal plane, Terris-Thule is bound to have a good scare in store for you!

    Those inclined to celebrate the holiday with a few crafting tricks or treats will find a new book of recipes full of new house items to craft, sold by Lil’ Boo, one of the official event merchants, along with other new items, while Haint, another merchant, sells the returning must-have items. There’s enough between the two of them to create your own haunted house!

    Does Varsoon get body dropped candy and will the varsoon server merchant have the recipe books?

    Feedback: if you have time to add the recipe books and body drop candy loot to the Varsoon merchant it would allow us to decorate much more expansively and creatively.

    I know the quests hardlocked behind the expansions they take place in and that you are also in expansion quest building mode. So my expectations are realistic.Thanks so much for considering.

    No problems with the items from the new recipe books or the new merchant purchased items.

    I'm not sure the Furious Spirit in "An Abandoned Mansion" for "Broken Mirrors" scales perfectly to 125. It took a really long time to bring it down in each room and I don't think it took that long previously. It was always lengthy but not that much iirc.

    I haven't done the haunted houses for years now, so I ran the grave quests, the Qeynos HH then proceeded to Somborn. I didn't remember you could dual that house.
    Anyway, would it be possible to move the "Goulish Night Tapestry" reward from "This Won't End Well" to be an optional reward (might replace it with corn or just as an option). I remember now why I don't run this quest any more, too many tens of banners!

    I had problems with the Hedge Hollow. First time around, the cut-scenes didn't trigger (I typed again and again the escape button out of blackness) and it worked for the gnome but Altius didn't trigger. I crossed back the maze to him and it worked.
    Second run through the zone, cut-scene took a long time to load and unload but it worked on the first try.

    Anyway, I completed all the quests at 125 (except McQuibble 'cause well, nope, don't want to) and had no problems.
    I'll craft & buy stuff tomorrow *yawn*

    Question regarding "Trick or Treatskiller".
    Is there a despawn timer for the dispensers?
    I ran it with Yava earlier and placed the candies down and completed the quest while Leu was on the Qeynos HH. I then did Splitpaw, Somborn and a everything in Nek and thought "hey, I'll do that quest on Leu too". So it's been somewhere between 1h & 2h and the dispensers (all 3 of them) are still up so I cannot place mine down. My chars where grouped at the time but only Yava had the quest. There's only 6 of us on the server so I don't think anyone just rushed to do it. I tried camping to self but it's still there. It's too late to wait for a despawn right now so I'll go to sleep!

    uuuuuuuuuuuuhhh it's here

    Damm, Night of the Dead, new Panda quests, Prelude event and City fest, it's going to be a fun week.
    owe the catacomb building blocks were taken out :(

    I think I can answer some of your questions oakmisser , all Varsoon will get is a merchant with some NoD items,
    in Freeport or Qeynos.
    There will be no recipes on the merchant, so no need for candy dropping from mobs.

    I wonder if we could get the graves on Varsoon, pretty please.

    Large Gray Wastes Maple - floating a bit when initially placed

    Petamorph : Incensed Lich - bigger default size pls!

    all three types of bone barriers from the recipe - their default sizes are rather small

    Necromancer's Summoning Ceremony - can it be made a bit bigger?

    In game email did not arrive, even after zoning. Will check the guy in Mara. (nope, no mail)

    No! The Catacomb building blocks?! Those are the only ones we have for NotD! :(

    Well, okay, there are the various bone things, but that's only tiles and dividers; it doesn't have all the options the Catacomb stuff does. :(

    EDIT: If they're removing the Catacomb Brick stuff (bad idea, imho), what's the new building block set? Has anyone gotten it yet?

    Sometimes, like in the last couple of expacs, I've run into the problem of "Aw, you're only level 100? 110? 120, even? Aw... Well, I am LEVEL 100! LEVEL 110!! LEVEL 120!!! DIE, PUNY MORTAL WORM; YOU CAN NEVER, EVER DAMAGE ME ENOUGH! Muahahahahahahahahahah! >:->" a time or two, and the only thing that "cured" it was auto-mentoring down 5-10 levels below. :-/

    who wonders if that happens at 125 now, too... X-P

    the NotD neriak tree guy isn't in his usual spot. (Head scratch, ponders where to get new character the dead tree)

    It's the Unrest Stone building blocks, very beautiful brick set.

    Ok, Leucosia is bugged, I still have the dispenser showing in all 3 places. I deleted the quest and retook it and they spawn right away.
    I see in my "completed quest" tab that I completed it last today (10/01/2022) but I didn't complete it. Leucosia is the only character that did that quest in the past (last year), that's why I wanted to do it several times as I only had one of the plushies in stock. It might be a repeatability issue.

    I confirm that I didn't get it either (including on at least one char, Blanchette, who I checked doesn't have mails from previous years)

    Question: My second toon to get into the event today got hit with the Splodey Pumpkins like half a dozen times, often when I was in the process of picking up after the first two or three. ;-> What, exactly, is the proper etiquette for such? I know the one throwing them can't pick up anything from them; should we offer the collectibles we already have back to the thrower? Should we just thank them and be appreciative? :-/

  19. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    Just ask them ;p

    Will there be upgraded loot and some rare drops as the Horseman Hallow Belt as well or is it just the same as last year and the year before? It was very disappointing to see last year that nothing has changed...
