Halloween Arrives In Wurm Online

Recommended Posts

Hey all you ghouls and goblins, it’s time to celebrate the season of creepiness! Slay your way through the forests, mountains, and deserts for your chance to find some new Halloween drops, and grab your shovel or trowel to dig up some grave- errrr, spooky themed archaeology fragments.

Note: The Spooktacular Skill Gain Event is not yet active and will begin with the scheduled update

Here I was looking forward to 30% skillgain bonus and now I am abandoning all of that to dig up spooky bits from the ground.  I really like this idea!

When is the scheduled update? Can't see that anywhere. The skillgain event was announced for the 28th, it's now the 28th GMT, so what's up?

Edit, I see the fountain update, I guess later today. They usually update around the same time right? Anyone know what that is GMT?

The update will be at around 2pm server time, which is about 9 hours and 15 minutes from now.

Just a quick question, because I've never been around for when there's an event like this --

 

Is it any mob (or just hostiles) that drops the new Halloween themed drops?

And do you have to butcher them or will the item just automatically go in your inventory?

 

Thanks!

I can answer one of those questions.  It goes straight into inventory.  I got a troll mask from a troll.  but unsure if you can get the other places.

Thanks! I'm assuming it's just hostile mobs, but hoping someone knows for sure XD

hostile non-bred mobs only, higher cr = more chance and uniques are 100% to drop a random item.

I'll work with Demona to get an update on this out tomorrow post-patch. It's changed, for example it's a straight chance now - not CR-based. I found that to be punishing for folks who couldn't take tougher creatures. The intention for this event is to be fun for everyone, not just those with high skill, therefore drop rates in both the combat and the spooky archaeology finds have been set accordingly.

Rejoice! It's time to grind :D

On side note, will we have darkened skies/eclipses or something of the sort? Seems a bit off-theme to have Sol shine bright in the sky meanwhile the Halloweens shadow descend upon wurm haha.

So the new mob-drops and arch-fragments arent ingame yet, right?

Correct - they'll be out after the weekly restart.

I wish I'd known this before murdering everything with a pulse within 500 tiles.
