GW2 Halloween Minipets

GW2 Halloween Minipets

A guide to the four GW2 Halloween exclusive mini pets with screenshots and video of their animation. These pets are only purchasable from the gem store during the Halloween event.

The first three mini pets can be obtained from the gem store as part of the Miniature Spooky Trio (500 gems). The 4th pet requires combing the first three in the mystic forge with 250 candy corns (essentially another 500 gems). 1000 gems in total if you want all four mini pets. All of the mini pets are account bound and not tradeable

Mini Spooky Ghost

  • Has a very nice animation to it and it is probably the coolest mini pet out of the four (in my opinion)

Mini Spooky Skeleton

Mini Spooky Spider

Chainsaw the Skeleton

  • Obtained by combining Mini Spooky Ghost + Mini Spooky Skeleton + Mini Spooky Spider + 250 Candy Corn into the mystic forge. You will lose the three pets but gain this one
  • The chainsaws do move and make a buzzing sound

GW2 Chicken Scramble achievement guide

GW2 Chicken Scramble achievement guide

GW2 Chicken Scramble achievement guide with detailed walkthrough. Chicken Scramble is an explorer achievement introduced with the Halloween patch for an achievement obtainable in Bloodtide Coast, Queensdale, Gendarran Fields and Kessex Hills. This one involves opening chests in these zones to spawn Skritt burglars that will transform you into a chicken for this achievement. Like the other skritt burgler involving achievements, there isn’t one spot for the chest to spawn. Instead, there are a number of possible locations.

Tips

  • Press ctrl down while looking for these chests as it will highlight their names.
  • Best to do this with a friend so you can find the skritt burgler faster and reduce the waypoint costs
  • Do not use any pets/clones if possible as the skritt may transform your pet instead. This is especially a concern for rangers.
  • Focus on low damage attacks so you don’t kill the skritt burgler too quickly
