Halloween Event 2019 [Finale]

Recommended Posts

I am aware of the issue regarding HoT giving away christmas loots, just wait on reboot/reload script and it will be fixed.

I just had an argument with someone. This person has been running all over the field collecting huge mobs using Warlock AOE spells. Which is fine, but they steamrolled me several times and I just got really pissed off because the last time, I was hammering on a Peculiar and they just spam-dropped Jupiter Thunder & Storm Gust all over me. It knocked my monster all over the place, disconnecting from it and just KS'd the hell out of me with no regard. This was the third time. They whip up 3-4 Peculiars into a circle with a zillion other monsters and it's extremely disrupting. I've seen other people using warlocks and they don't do it right on top of monsters you're working on. Also this guy is not standing still creating a mob, he's running from one side of the map to the other collecting huge mob trains. In the pic I it's right after he went over me (I'm in costume), he went from right to left. In his mob he's got three wraiths, how greedy can someone be?! So I told them to stop and they said holiday events "are always a free for all." I said they're not, the bosses are but not Peculiars and regular monsters, plus "free for all" doesn't mean acting like a complete jackass with no regard for other players. Can someone tell me please what the deal is? I would never drop AOE right on other players who are working on a monster or even a small mob. I've been playing here since 2013 and I've done a lot of events, and this kind of attitude and disregard for other players was never okay. Plus mobtraining like that is never okay, holiday event or not. So he basically told me to go ahead and report him, no one's going to do anything anyway.

I got a lot of 2 years ago halloween materials and they only can be "transformed" into potions (35% success, meh). They should be added in the point shop too in order to be sold, please 🙏

Most mobs in seasonal are free for all. Unfortunately we cannot force players to control their AOE so they could avoid what their AOE could hit, at best we can disable 3rd skill there. Especially in case of Peculiars. Peculiars are mini-boss, and just like field any other boss they are free for all. Perhaps in christmas we would have too.

Anwyay you can use @noks to try avoiding people from taking your mobs.

Also if a player is intentionally following you and killstealing each of your mobs, then that could be considered griefing and you can ask the GM to warn the player. However if it's unintentional there's really nothing much we can do about it.

again those materials aren't even supposed to be included in the event. Some players already had their advantage by having them and getting the chance to obtain items by crafting them and sending them to NPCs. Those items are never meant to be stored for years as they will lose their value. If you store them expect them to be useless. I am already kind enough to let you use them again.

Well it wasn't the KSing so much as the mobtrain thing. Most people stand by or walk past someone hitting a Peculiar, but if they join in while I'm hitting one I am not bothered by that.

Do anyone still play poison creation npc? XD i know vampire quest is really really worth it but the intimacy system for poison creation is not even worth even in high lvls, this is according to those high lvls that i ask about. the materials you need just to get a level is too much.

I think my vampire quest is stuck, but I didn't even know till now because I didn't realize that was how it worked. Every time I talk to the Witch she says "how's it going with that vampire hunt?" It's been like this since I started and I have killed a zillion vampires since then, I didn't even know it's broken to report it. I thought that was how it was supposed to be. But I got frustrated by the poison creation quest thing since it requires so much just for the hat, which I don't even want, and there's other stuff I want instead I'd rather focus on. Does the hat actually open up a quest to get other stuff? Or is the hat the point? Have I been missing out this whole time on the Vampire hunt quest?

The intimacy system seems painfully slow for what it yields. I'm doing the other intimacy quests and they're slowly going up, but the dolly has not given me anything worth doing it for so far. I just do it because I get the dolls while I'm farming the other stuff. The yield for the effort has not been worth it unless you get something spectacular near the end, but I have no way of knowing if that will pay off. The dolly hasn't given me anything more than a few trinkets, nothing rare or special. Neither has the other one, I'm just doing it for the 100 or so Hallo Tokens to buy something. It's literally all been war supplies and gjallerhorn. 

I also played the paragon gambling a lot (300+ candies worth) and I the best thing I got was enriched elunium. At one point I got near the end and it asked me if I wanted a Hylozoist Hat or to go one more step. I was thrilled I'd actually finally gotten that far. I alt-tabbed for one minute to look up what a Hylozoist hat looks like, and when I alt-tabbed back the dialogue box had gone blank! I hit return and it just shut off, so I didn't even get the hat!!! I was heartbroken. The dice/cards thing is very confusing to me, and glitched out on me while doing the fishing & froze. There isn't anything telling you what you get for collecting the cards or even where to cash them in, and on top of that you actually have to pay zeny to rent stuff or just to move on if you don't want to sit there waiting for 3 more people to come along! I guess I will miss out on whatever you will be able to get with the elite items. Without knowing what to aim for I have zero motivation to collect blank cards, and after the touchy glitches it's not worth the heartbreak of losing all my time & effort just to be disappointed.

I'm giving all my loot now so I can buy a pet (50,000) but I'm also wondering, what if something new is implemented after I spend all that on a pet, that I would have otherwise saved the loot for? I mean 50k has taken me days of hours upon hours to finally collect. I feel frustrated, like I'm being punished rather than rewarded.

You do realize that everything there is optional right? No one is forcing you to do this and that. You can farm for what you get.

I think you guys are missing the very purpose of seasonal events and that is to allow players to craft some seasonal gears that could help them through the years. Now we've been doing this event for the past few years and most of you already have most of the craftable items that's why there's no need for you to farm them. Now if you still want to farm then I am adding things that you could spend your "extra" items. You could get things that maybe worth it or not. But again farming is optional it's not mandatory. If you want to farm because you want to get something then it's your decision, I am not forcing you. If you farm too much either give it away or sell it to those who needs them.


Shaloshi NPC's main purpose is the vampire hunting quest. Her intimacy is always optional and that's because her mobs drop herbs. While doing vampire hunting quest you got an option, craft those items and increase your intimacy to her or just sell those drops or give them away to those who needs them. You already get your rewards by doing her quest and you are still looking for too much. Her rewards are completely random, you might get pure elunium that cost 10b+ or forging coupon that could give you another expensive armor or maybe a trash it's not my luck it's yours. If you forced it and you aren't lucky then it's your fault because it was never supposed to be forced. You could do a computation before even attempting on increasing her intimacy.

Dolly NPC is another optional NPC, you are farming and you get dolls as you've mentioned, no one is forcing you to increase your intimacy with her, you can farm and just give her your extra loots for helping in invasion, you get a small reward for it. If you are a hard core farmer, you'll get her at high level in time, which could yield better rewards. The very fact that it took less than a week for a player to reach level 30 to dolly should show you well the difference between a casual farmer and a hard core farmer. NPC like Dolly is created to give those "hard core" farmers extra rewards.

House of Trials - House of trials is another optional thing to do. Blank cards is only one of the few things you can get there. Even your first attempt is free everytime it loaded, if you still wanna do it then that's the only time you need to pay no one is forcing you to do it and pay for it. Let me tell you, some people spent 4b+ there everytime. Not everyone of them get too lucky every run but that's just how it is, yet they still keep on doing it. That's because they understand it well.

Maybe you should ask yourself, how come they understand it way more than you do. A good hint is reading npc dialogue if it's your first time.

I do understand that there's still some issues with house of trials but that's simply because it's one of the biggest dungeon and I am barely getting any reports on the issue when I in fact ask before to report them and I've been fixing issues with it as much as possible.

As for the issue of blank dialogue. Sigh that's something that always happen with every npc, it's not limited on paragon. Try talking to an NPC and tab for sometime and their dialogue would end up blank.

I understand your frustration but maybe it's not your day and there's nothing I can do about it. Even 300 pcs of candies doesn't necessarily mean you'll get a rare. Paragon is gambling.

if you are new, I believe the best thing you should do is craft those donation powered items, don't gamble your gears through intimacy, they are for extra item, though if you have those candies, you can try your luck with them at paragon. Though don't expect much as it really takes some luck, some people can get a rare with just 10 candies.

And brace yourself for the rare raffle, in the past events, there are lot of players who managed to get hundreds of ticket but end up with no rare at all, while other who only have a few ticket got lucky. There's nothing we can do about it, we cannot give away everything, the whole event is already a give away itself.

I'm sorry I didn't mean to sound so critical, I was very tired. If it wasn't fun I wouldn't play. I fully understand it's based on low percentages and in that aspect I'm not expecting to get rares for sure or anything. It can be a little frustrating though to pound on literally thousands of the same monsters to save up loot, especially the candy is so low drop, only to get "Whammy! Sorry not your day!" over & over. Or to kill the Halloween Poring 4x and yet never get any loot from it (???).

To be fair, if you calculate about how many drops of Halloween Token you can get by farming, literally non-stop monster killing, with the amount of times you can do the Peculiar Quest per hour (since it makes you sit out & "rest" no matter how fast you kill the 5 Peculiars) to score 100-140 tokens from that, it takes at the very least 20-something hours to get 5000 if you want to buy one of the better equips, and upwards of 40 hours at the worst. That's the equivalent hours of a full time job. LOL. For ONE headgear. 8-10 hours of play for 4-5 days is exhausting. If that's not "hardcore" then I guess I am just not hardcore. I feel bad for people who have much less free time than I do who want to get one or two equips that need 5000-7000 Hallo Tokens. Honestly I have played many holiday events over the years and this is the toughest one yet, although it's been 2 or 3 years since I did Halloween. I think the last one I played was when it had the door-to-door trick or treating and you could get the Bleach masks.

As for the issue of blank dialogue. Sigh that's something that always happen with every npc, it's not limited on paragon. Try talking to an NPC and tab for sometime and their dialogue would end up blank.

Honestly I tabbed out for less than a minute. I google images "hylozoist hat" and immediately tabbed back. This has happened to me before though so maybe it's my computer rather than the game. Just sucked that the one & only time I made it that far in the Paragon I lost it because of a glitch or error. 😕

Maybe you should ask yourself, how come they understand it way more than you do. A good hint is reading npc dialogue if it's your first time.

I did, over & over, as I always do. I was still confused. I guess I just didn't get it, I even asked other people. When someone bothered to answer I got some conflicting answers. With the vampire hunter quest as I mentioned, if I didn't know it was glitched I couldn't have asked to have it fixed. I just thought it was supposed to be like that. I dunno, I'm just stupid I guess, because I still don't know if it was just to get the hat, or if getting the hat means that it opens up another quest. I'm just ignoring it to focus on the other stuff.

The event is supposed to let players craft a donation gears, which takes days if not weeks for an average player to obtain. If one can get an end-game gears in 20 hours with 5K tokens i’d say its basically a giveaway, its a deal. 

I’ll let you in for a little secret, if Halloween is too easy it’ll affect the economy (there I said it lol), eventually the donation dynamic. If only getting a rare is as easy as gathering a few candies, no one would be interested to do the intimacy race, normal average people even don’t get a rare for months. It’s supposed to be end game— and what happen to the people who has thousands and thousands of candies on their disposal in storage? They would at least get away with how many rare? Theres a lot of things to consider in doing these kind of events, we need to close loopholes as many as possible. 

the whole point of the event is a quick donation gears crafting, 2-3 in the span of 3 weeks. Unless you have a plan on getting every each one of gears on the shop; which of course the devs wouldn’t let such thing to happen, because again— economy. But then if you have the time to farm non-stop, no sleep and completely sell your soul to the PC i’d say you probably deserve the things you would get. 

Sometimes along with time passing, the staff team will be reshuffled, they will have different ideas or different concept, so the current Halloween may or may not be harder than previous year, we can’t guarantee its gonna be the same each year. But its gonna be fun and that’s where you can craft one or two things.

ps. The trick or treat game with bleach mask you are talking about is on the closing of the event, which ideally is 3rd November. We’ll go from down caspen to the upper north trick or treating together. 

also, if there is anything you dont understand about the whole quest in the halloween you can use @request and if no one is answering you can DM me here on forum I would be glad to explain/ guide you through it.
