Patch notes

  • MauricioCezar

    So… Any changes on ClockTower, or is exactly the same of last year?

  • turnquest

    you no longer see other people as selves. they are now small blue orbs. so no missing that platform cause you cant see around a norn

  • Madoka

    that wasn’t really an issue, since 90% drop out after the first couple jumps last year and then people begin to spread out, I guess they really need to help out those that couldn’t make out the first couple jumps…

    Update: this year’s reward is a pair of exotic gloves with Superior Rune of Mad King. Repeats 1st time only gives me 2 bag and second time 4, seems less then last year. Going to try with second character and see I can get another pair of gloves like last year or only 1 pair per account… and yes, the jumping puzzle itself is exactly the same, so no challenge at all for those pass it last year. (I failed the first 4 attempt then I get my feel back on it).

    More update: confirmed… only one per account for the gloves…

    • Ares Zax

      Damn, that really sucks. ๐Ÿ™ I was hoping to get another Exotic armor piece to go along with my boots from last year and the Aetherized shoulder piece.

  • Thar

    I was really looking forward to taking my big fat charr into the clock tower to really piss people off but now that won’t work ๐Ÿ™

  • narg

    btw any 1 know way where or how to farm candy corn fast ??

    • Try candy corn nodes inside the Labyrinth?

      • narg

        there are only 4 of them and give 3 corn each, dont know if they reset with leave of the instance or not, I check this tomorrow

        • They reset w/ map, I got into another overflow and they reappeared again

          • narg

            but still pretty long way to farm 20k+ of candy corn :/

        • Linxel

          Candycorn nodes now frequently re-spawn while you are running the labyrinth. counted at least 6 re-spawns in an hour farm last night. (oct 16th)

    • anon

      If you’re good at jumping puzzles, you can get about 30 trick or treat bags in 15 min, so 120 an hour if you run the clock tower. And the trick or treat bags have 1-2 candy corn each as far as i know.

      • Madoka

        Yes, if you good at the clock tower, with the change of the chest (instant click open of the chests on the way), each run you get 7 to 10 bags for opening all the chest and the clock room chest. And once you are done in the clock room, just exit to outside and join the clock tower again so you have all the chest each run (you can only open the chest every other run if you stay inside the same clock tower.

  • Faze

    I was so excited for this patch, it may be fun to alot of people but for those of us who were here last year it is a major letdown. The only new thing in this patch is the new story and some ugly weapon skins (Not including the staff.)

  • Kolzi

    Is there any way to get the town clothes from last year?

    • Don’t think so, but wait till next Tuesday and see

  • Guest

    Has anyone actually gotten credit for Shut the Doors achievement outside of the Labyrinth? Running around Gendarran Fields and all of the doors are just trick or treat doors and aren’t counting towards the achievement for me.

    • I got credit for one in Gendarran one hmm, this was before the hotfix patch though

      • Xaldorna

        I got a few proper event doors in Kessex before bed last night, so either I was really unlucky before or they made GF the safe place to take your kids trick or treating.

        • DaGhostDS

          you need to get an event pop up, if the door close or just stay open with a bag dropped on the floor, go to the next one.

  • Avalia

    Hey Dulfy, not sure if this is of any use to you, but I made a video of the singing Minstrel in LA:

    • Thayet

      Anet also uploaded this on their soundcloud page.

  • dizzy

    Any idea how to get the paper-bag helm skins?

    • Gemstore items, next Tuesday

  • N7_Razor

    Doh…I didn’t get an achievement for completing the Clock Tower puzzle. ๐Ÿ™
    It was just counted toward a meta-ach.

    • Achievements from last year are no longer obtainable ๐Ÿ™

      • N7_Razor

        Thank you for the confirmation!

      • narg

        really ?? so I can finally fuck this then, hate this JP

  • Jano Ris

    fastest way i know off is doing the clocktower puzzle. Loot all 3 chests on the way up and after winning, you leave and rejoin. By rejoining you have a chance to skip the 2 min waiting time you have when you win, and the chests will be lootable again. Personally I get ~15 bags every 5 min.

  • The Spirit Molecule

    I hate temporary content…why does everything have to be temporary, why can’t they just find a way to make it all accessible always at all times permanently forever. Some kind of asura device that one would have in one’s inventory.

  • Madoka

    As of today… they added the fragments to the clockwork tower repeated chest, but only once a day… the chest is empty when you go there again, bag farming is over… And besides the activity achievement, no point of staying for the whole event…

    • Fuark

      Bag farming is back..
