    Halloween 2009. Did anyone else enjoy this event as much as I did? To me it had multiple positives:

    Multifaceted - There were so many things to do, from beginning to end. The phrases we had to get the little buggers to spit out at the beginning, collecting moon grass, getting essences, which leads to...

    Something for everyone - The rewards were great. Masks for the collector type, Luck Conj. Garb for the PvMers, non-luck for the PvPers. And the three different essences made it a real lottery, and gave you something to work for on every tier.

    Player Interaction - The places were constantly filled with people. I play Siege Perilous, and I juggled doing the quest with PKing those doing it, or trying to. Got in some great battles, died, killed, and had a great time.


    Why are there not more quests like this? Items weren't just handed out based on damage or luck, they were earned. New monster was handed to us in crystal form(very cool idea btw), and it was a grind at times, but when the grind got boring you could just spawn a Harbringer and get a group together to kill it.

    I hope something like this event is done soon. A little PvM, a little detective work, a little PvP, etc.

    I would have to pick the Ophid Invasion. Fact that the weapons tied in with use in later events. And leading into the event was the Repond Invasion. The use of both the event weapons in later events.

    I, personally, like there being a variety of kinds of events.

    I also think that, when designing new events, it's now appropriate for them to go back and pick and choose earlier mechanics to emulate and "rehue" (not the right term but you all know what I mean I think) into new ones.

    As long as they don't do the same mechanic in two successive events (a la the triumph of the Abyss housing quest followed by the failure of the Treasures of Ricardo event) I don't think we'll mind a mechanic being recycled.

    It'll save design time; they can focus on the content and can fix the Enhanced Client in their spare time.

    Sure someone will complain that it's derivative but....

    Is that the one w/ the colored bone armor we were told would be used later? waited over a year, threw it in the trash, but the event was Cool! I also liked the Halloween that first had the big lich.

    I missed Halloween 2009, heard all about it and had hoped it would be repeated in 2010 but no luck and from now on the holidays seem to be in the hands of the EMs.

    I agree with the OP but all the other events mentioned was great fun too. Lots of great parts in the Magincia event chain as well!

    I agree that the Halloween event was one of a kind, and many (if not all) global events that have followed it have paled in comparison.

    I also really enjoyed the Candle of Love quest.
