Sinister Moon Rising

Posted by John Thornhill | 2015 Oct 19 10:37 -0400 GMT
October is not just our favorite month because of the Anniversary, it's also Halloween! And that means haunted cities, candy and costumes, pumpkin patches in the Frontiers, and this year... a brand new, creepier-looking moon!

Festivities begin today, October 19th and will conclude Monday, November 2nd.


  • The Ghostly Harvest Quest offers players level 45 and up a dangerous adventure in the frontiers. Speak with John Tobin on the Cotswold Bridge, Foa Muldisson outside the Jordheim North Gates, or Nera by the road in Mag Mell to begin the quest. (Note: Players who completed this quest last year will now be offered it again.)
  • Jack, the grim reaper, has been spotted near the Agramon, Emain Macha, Hadrian's Wall, and Odin's Gate pumpkin patches. He's been heard muttering about the Otherworlds by passerby.
    • Jack's difficulty has been slightly increased and he now has a chance to drop the new Energy and Body Legendary Weapon specialty ingredients (Orb of Entropy and Pound of Flesh).
    • Jack can only spawn at one of the four possible pumpkin patches at a given time.
  • Treat sellers have been spotted selling sugary confections inside Meath, Erikstaad, and Caerwent.
  • The consignment merchants would like to show you their Halloween spirit! Pick up the merchant and place it back down on your house porch and he will change into a Halloween outfit for you!
  • Be aware adventurers! Ghosts haunt the streets of your capital cities as the pumpkin moon rises! Ghosts have also been spotted in Mag Mell, Aegirhamn, and Campacorentin Station.
  • The horses you once rode have joined the spirit realm. (This affects stable and merchant horses only - not player controlled horses.)
  • Something strange has happened to all of the puppies.
  • The pumpkins have been carved into jack o' lanterns!
  • A trio of crazy old women have been spotted selling costume potions inside Camelot, Jordheim, and Tir na Nog.
    • The costume potions last 15 minutes each and come in a variety of flavors.
    • The costume potions work best if you remove your helm and armor.
    • You cannot digest another costume potion if you are transformed into any of the monster forms.
    • The costume potions' magics are short-lived and the potions will be useless after the festivities end so don't horde them.
    • Some of the costume potions allow you to take the form of the enemy, so don't be scared if you see some in your capital city or housing zones, it's just your realm mates playing dress up!
    • The costumes and potions only work while you are in the capital cities or housing zones. You cannot use them outside of these zones and if you leave the zone while in costume, you will lose the effect.
    • As always, the days before, during, and after Halloween these potions can be used in RvR (With Exception to Pixies, and ghosts potions, which are not usable in the frontiers ever)
Developer's Note: Please remember to run the patcher in order to see the pumpkin loot bags and sinister moon.

The Traveling Merchants Project

Posted by Community | 2015 Oct 14 10:51 -0400 GMT
This time of year is full of candy-induced excitement and frightful practical jokes, and almost nothing is more exciting (or scary) than the traveling merchants and their prices! Stock up and get your items before these weary travelers vanish once more!

Several popular items have also made their return, including Darkness Falls Weapons and the Midwinter Frozen Medal of Honor.




Players can find the merchants at the below locations. Happy Shopping!


In Albion: Just outside of gates of Castle Sauvage in Camelot Hills
In Midgard: Just outside of Svasud Faste in the Vale of Mularn
In Hibernia: Just outside of Druim Ligen in Connacht

The merchants will remain through the 28th of October.
