It’s impossible to complete witches anthenauem quest! Can’t get noctrunal eye charms to get witches phial.


I have used up all my nocturnal eye charms trying to get the witch’s phial. Does anyone know where they drop from?


I’m on quest 25. I previously charged the collection, I must have thought this quest string wouldn’t have returned. I need help getting the items again. Missing items are on my Wish List. Invitation code 4a40be


    Do u know where to get the black candles to play the the room witch’s Athenaeum


      Banish the dark Bibliophile


      Also from the Living Book or you can buy in the shop.


I need Veiled Lady Mushroom in Powerful Pumpkin collection. How do I find it?


    You can get the mushrooms and books searching rooms when you are using the Time Control Artifact number 15. Most players have a bunch so see if you can get a friend to send it to you.


Where to you find the pumpkins to banish the ghostly biker?


    They are Burning Pumpkins according to the quest but since I didn’t have any I checked and they are the Magic Pumpkins in your weapons used to banish the Headless Horseman! It takes 5 for each Biker! If you don’t have any they should drop from searching rooms.


      Thank you xx


I found the agaricus mushroom in the hotel in the yard.


    If you use Artifact #15 while searching, all of the mushrooms drop eventually…..


I lost the Witches Athenaeum from my game. Is that supposed to happen? Also lost the restaurant and kitchen of plenty.


    Yes, those are seasonal rooms and only come out for the events. They may be back next year if GI decides to use them again.

Any help with finding Sorcerer’s to get Witch’s Phial?


    I can’t find them either. Anyone know what gets them to appear?


      I don’t know why, but the priestess of chaos gave me the witches phial. Clicked on the show button in the quest box and it took me to her and I did get the phial from banishing her. Really messed up and confusing!

The hearts drop from rooms, very slowly, I gave up and put the feathers on my wish list


Quest #22. To find the mushroom in th hall, the mist curse isn’t showing the mushroom. Ive tried the mist, idol, willowisp, UFO…nothing is bringing this thing up. Anyone have any ideas what curse is the right one? The message keeps saying I have no rooms with the right curse.


    Can you get that mushroom as a gift from another player?


      I put it up on my Wl. Someone should send it. But it’s just frustrating…


    So you did play the hallway in mist mode and then the curse that was left from it did not show the mushroom?


      Yes I did play several times and the mushroom never showed up…


    I found the mushroom that was listed for the hall in the garden with the curse after the will o wisp. I was gifted the one that was listed for the garden, but tried it anyway and there was the one I needed from the hall!

    You can ask a friend for a mushroom on your wall request, I have plenty to give. 6CA555

Where do I find the hearts to banish the Amor Angel?
