The season of spooks is approaching!
Our Halloween Event will start on 10/23/2019 and will last until 11/6/2019. We have prepared many scary attractions and free stuff will be on the menu so be sure to participate!
To get you in the mood, we will host a Heroic Weekend and tease some of the upcoming limited items! Starting today 10/16/2019, The Keyper will be back in the Realms with an updated dungeon pool featuring the Heroic Undead Lair and Heroic Abyss of Demons! His current pool is Heroic Abyss of Demons, Heroic Undead Lair, Lair of Draconis, Cnidarian Reef, and Secluded Thicket.
Furthermore, the Keyper event has received some light balance changes. HP scaling on all Emergent monsters has been removed, and all damage values have been approximately halved, making them overall much less lethal than their dungeon counterparts.
We will also have events for both heroic dungeons:
UDL - 10/17/2019 12:00 PM UTC - 10/20/2019 12:00 PM UTC
Abyss - 10/19/2019 12:00 PM UTC - 10/22/2019 12:00 PM UTC
During the time of the events, the Heroic Dungeon Portals will have a chance to spawn at the end of their respective normal dungeon. Heroic dungeons will be also dropping some extra stuff for the duration:
Each of them can drop Shard of the Mad God x1. As you know, you can transform 25 of these for a random weapon of the Agents of Oryx series!
Heroic UDL can drop Demon Pumpkin
Heroic Abyss can drop Witch's Skull
For Halloween, we prepared some scary reskins of existing ST sets. Each Mystery Item will transform into one out of 8 items from two sets:
Demon Pumpkin - Unholy Paladin Set, Scarecrow Trickster Set
Witch's Skull - Reanimated Archer Set, Totalia Mystic Set
You will be able to obtain these items via quests and as drops during the Halloween Event, but now we are giving you an opportunity to get some in advance! Furthermore, the top 50 openers of Heroic Keys (Heroic Abyss & Heroic UDL combined) will be rewarded with both Mystery Items for their altruism!
Additionally, we are deactivating the Beer God until the 21st of October, when he will make a special appearance. During our Octoberfest Event, he will be more common, have more HP, and have a few new tricks up his sleeves. He will spawn up to two times per realm and will also bring his signature items with him: The Mighty Stein and the Greaterhosen!
KIDDFORCE & TOASTRZ Q&A STREAM
This Thursday (10/17/2019) we have also something special for you! At 3 PM UTC our two famous designers Kiddforce & Toastrz will host a stream. Testing servers will be open for public so you can either join them or watch them on Twitch channel. They will be running a new version of Cemetery prepared to be released for Halloween Event and answering your questions. Join them in realm or on Twitch chat!
Note that in an upcoming release, all Halloween Haunted Cemetery keys will be converted to standard Haunted Cemetery keys as a part of our Haunted Cemetery revisions. The Pumpkin Master will still be accessible in this dungeon during the Halloween season, but if you would like direct access, we suggest that you use your keys soon.
The number of disconnections should be decreased with this release and we are working on more improvements in terms of lag and disconnection.
Fungal Cavern Key has been added to the Legendary Mystery Key Item
Tesla Coils in Mad Lab and Lanterns in Mountain Temple will now become visible on the minimap when you defeat Dr. Terrible/Daichi.
