    Hallowtide events


    A new Halloween event, the Little Witch Race, has been added in Mirage Isle from 22 October - 5 November 2020.
    Like previous 'race' events there, it involves completing a timed course while avoiding obstables, in return for Little Witch tokens and achievements. Further details here.

    Little Witch tokens must be redeemed before November 12th, when the vendor will disappear.

    Hallowtide event

    The traditional Hallowtide event also returned to both Legacy and Unchained servers from 15 - 29 October 2020 (1 AM UTC), with a collection of rewards from past years including manastorm (1 for 10 tokens) the popular Windwraith Pipes and Sylvas Nocturne costume pieces. Further details here.

    Hallowtide event guide

    Start by taking the portal in your Hero Hall to the Sylvina Hot Springs in Solis, also accessible via portal at the Two Crowns Arena.

    In Solis, take the quest near the portal then head south-east across the pool towards the large tents, where you will find more quest npcs and a Travelling Merchant daru, who can sell you Blue Salt Knives the pumpkin carving activity at the nearby workbench. Once you have carved your pumpkin decoration, continue southeast to pick up a temporary Racing Snail mount for the 'Candy Hunter' quest (1 token). Use the snail's 'Sniff' skill to locate 3 purple candy bags scattered around the hot springs, while heading towards the final npcs located uphill, near another large tent and a large pumpkin.

    1. If you pick up yellow or azure candies, use them on your snail to increase its speed.
    2. You can complete the Sylvia Hot Springs exploration point by crossing the geyser near the finish line.
    After handing in your quests to the npcs near the finish line (1 token), take the nearby portal to the Two Crowns Arena to hand in your carved pumpkin decoration (1 token) and light 3 lanterns (1 token + 3 temporary candy combat buffs), for a total of 4 tokens.

    For additional tokens, attend the timed Troubled Spirits aka 'Candy Toss' event which occurs in the Arena three times daily. For North American servers, these times are exactly 5 hours before reset; at reset; and 5 hours after reset. For Europe, it occurs 2 hours before reset then 2 hours after it. The event supposedly lasts for 15 minutes but it is advisable to be there at the beginning when the quest npc appears. After taking the quest and touching the stone, you will be offered a quest which involves 'picking up candy' by interacting with nearby pumpkins on the ground, and 'tossing' it, by targeting one of two larger pumpkins on poles. After the large pumpkins are full, collect your reward from one of the two coffin chests at their base.

    Tips for the timed 'Candy Toss' event:
    1. Ensure you pick up the second quest from the npc after touching the soulstone.
    2. 'Candy Toss' participants are automatically assigned to one of two teams but it is not always clear which team you're on. If you are unable to interact with the candy pumpkins, move to the other team's area.
    3. If you are unable to receive any reward for the 'Candy Toss' event, abandon it. A failed quest still in your quest log will prevent you from re-accepting it.
