Ancient Awakened Soldier’s Ring – Mad King’s Labyrinth

Found in Lost Belongs just SW of the NW waypoint in Mad King’s Labyrinth. This one is tricky because Mad King loves to teleport you when you get near that place so it is to fly really fast to it using griffon from the waypoint and just click F as fast as possible on the item.

SE corner of the Labyrinth. Easiest to just griffon from the NE waypoint.

  • Timóteo André

    The pumpkin mini is not even carved… Anet so lazy, tsk tsk tsk.

    • Alot

      On the other hand, if you could carve it once a day…

    • Rehjo

      This mini functions like the mini snowballs, you can combine multiples in mystic forge to create a carved one, and then combine multiple carved ones to get an on-flames carved one.
      They also drop from BL chests, so you can buy more from the TP.

      • Eth

        I.. don’t think they drop from BL chests.
        You can right click a black lion chest and preview the items that drop there and the pumpkin isn’t there. Not in the Bl chest and not in the Gnashblade bag that is a garanteed drop from Bl chest.

        However, they drop from Trick-or-Treat bags, and are in the “Rare” category.

  • Squatch

    I’m happy there is an homage to the feud between Joko and Thorn this patch, but I was hoping for a little more. Joko and Thorn are really unusual and interesting characters, and with Joko’s death I was hoping for some kind of way he’d return in the mists for a Halloween standoff.

  • Morbid Eel

    Typo. “Help Burran investigate the mysterious gate” should be ”
    Help Buuran investigate the mysterious gate

  • James A Beggs

    Ancient Awakened Soldier’s Ring is very clumsy. There is a better way. Just fly to the mad spirit on the same island instead, change to hopper, hop onto the raised edge, change to unmounted and walk to the item and claim it. Zero problems that way whatsoever.

    Small PSA for those that don’t have Jackal, but have Springer and Raptor with Canyon Jump. It is possible to jump through the small gap in the window very high up on the south side of the area where it is locked. Climb up the tall rock across from it using Springer, then use Raptor to jump into the hole. May take a few tries, but it is possible.
