The Mystery of the Halloween Event 2017

The Mystery of the Halloween Event 2017

This year seems to be a Mystery for what the Halloween Event 2017 will be and who will get what quests. Mine starts with the first quest in the Witch’s Athenaeum quest string.

We have had this quest string for 2 years already so we are doomed to repeat it again this year.

I do have the Witch’s Athenaeum open to search in the upper left corner of my first floor. I also have Pumpkinshadow Castle in the lower right corner of my first floor. However, it is not accessible and tells me I need to reach the Rumble in the Pumpkin Field quest, which is 4 in the list. Pumpkinshadow Castle quest string also says I must complete the Witch’s Athenaeum quest string before getting these quests.

We had a quest string for Lord of Despair in 2016 but I don’t have it in my game. It did not require another quest string and was independent.

My only new right side quest is Trick or Treat to banish roamers which the count is where I left it last year.

If anyone has a new quest string or something different please let me know so I can work on updates.

I know I finished the Witch’s Athenaeum quest string last year and I was exploring Pumpkinshadow Castle.

All of the previous pages are listed in the Searching -> Events -> Halloween part of the main menu. I’ll update things as I learn about them.

Remember that Ghost Mode can only go into 3 rooms at a time. I know it messes with our Zodiac mode searches for the Zodiac Fortress: The Dark Lord. If I remember Ghost Mode can go in ANY room of the Manor. Lock it into 3 you don’t need for the Zodiac searches.

Dark Oculars can be found in any room (that’s what I have from last year, has anyone gotten them to drop?). Also if you are having trouble finding oculars there is a collection (Alice’s Friends) that Dolly and Halloweenie give you items for and charging gives you 40 oculars.

This event is 34 days long so will end November 20, 2017. I’m guessing it will overlap with Thanksgiving quests but they may hold them until this one ends.

When do the bibliophiles & living books start appearing. I’m up to the professional level of the Witch’s Athenaum & they still haven’t appeared. What am I doing wrong, or what step have I missed?
Any advice would be much appreciated,
Cheers

    There’s a quest that tells you to banish them. That’s when mine appeared. Did you get the quest string?

    You should be able to find them in your friends manor.

Rumble in the pumpkin patch is after you complete witch’s quests
GI has now fixed the counter for trading too

With regard to the Dark Oculars dropping, thus far I’ve only gotten them from banishing roamers. A new room, the punkin castle you mentioned maybe, has appeared in my manor. Trouble is, the quest string “Rumble in the Pumpkin patch” is no where to be found,
I am having the same issue anon commented on, my dog roamer seems to be resetting to zero every time I leave the manor. I’ve banished him a dozen or more time today & I’m back to zero.
Also, the Halloween event is negating the Dark Lord quests. No matter how many zodiac mode rooms I search, no banisters drop. However, I did get a single scorpion from the fortune telling room in night. The 31 subsequent searches of that room and multiple searches other rooms on all floors have yielded no weapons.
Hope this info helps.

    I do tell you in the post where the Rumble in the Pumpkin Field quest comes in.

my ghost and dolly are maxed out, however dog stopped adding up at 6.
After you finish witch’s quest, pumpkin shadow castle quests begin. I am thinking if you finish castle, last year’s quests will begin too

I’ve raised a ticket about this too. They asked for screen shots – very difficult to show what isn’t happening!!

    Should have said, my post is about banishing Halloween ghosts and them not counting towards Trick or Treat event

      juliamould

      My issue has now been resolved and the ghosts are now counting. I have asked if there is going to be any compensation for all the monsters zapped that did not count though. Yet to hear back.

        juliamould

        They have now sent enough weapons direct to my game to zap 10 Halloweenies – ok but a bit mean??

    MM_Admin

    Try a screen shot of you count in the trick or treat event, one of the ghost you are Banishing and then another to,show the count hasn’t increased. I know it’s nuts but it works!

I had also completed the Witches Athenaeum from last year, plus was on the last step of part one of the Pumpkinshadow Castle……are they really making everyone start over at the beginning?

    MM_Admin

    Maybe they’ll give us something new in a couple of days. I’ll send a message and ask.

    Mine came back from where I was last year.

Valli

alert : Banishing the Halloweenie, Dolly etc today did not count towards the right hand side wuest for the chest – am putting a ticket in 🙁

    MM_Admin

    Thanks for letting me know. I haven’t tried it yet. Everyone make sure you take screen shots before and after. You can trash them if you don’t need them.

    The same thing is happening to me. Please post what you find out!
