    I don't mind if he steals my candy, or turns me into maggots, but I hate when he teleports me.

    Anyone get other tricks besides the Twin or the blood trail?

    Ooooh... skulls! Can we still get the webs? I know someone mentioned that they got one of "last year's items" but not sure if they were referring to the semi-rares...

    adding it to the list after I asked ;)

    Grim warning is pretty neat too! Glad I finally GM'd begging this year! :D

    Well if they are handing out cool things like those things for GM Beggars, I think that I will have have to GM Begging for next year. (I would for this year but I haven't got it started lol). When this publish goes to Origin and if there are any GM Beggars there, I would love to buy at least one of each of these things, if not more.

    There's time yet. I didn't push to GM until a week before the end of last year's event. If you can create a new character with 50 begging, and get to heartwood.
    Or if you want to power game it you can hire and strand 6 fighters on heart island, and create a macro to beg them all and just grind away repeating it to GM. Bring a boat though. I ended up with well over 20k last year going from mid to high 80's to GM.

    THERE'S STILL HOPE!

    I Gmed it the hard way, went to Luna (over the last 2 weeks), and got every Begging SoT there. About 56 full points, people sell them cheap. Also you gain fast early on so raise it to what you need then SoT your way to GM.

    Does anyone know when this will go live? I originally thought it would be on Halloween, but after reading some posts I'm not so sure anymore...

    Just keep in mind that's just my best guess. I have no special knowledge on the subject.

    Hopefully it won't tomorrow...I'm hoping to grind begging this weekend (and maybe some the coming week). Hopefully the Halloween stuff will still be going on long enough for me to GM and get a couple things.
    Or maybe I'm delusional, and I won't be able to GM in time to beg for treats, no matter when it goes live :p I'll give it a good try though.

    Aaah...that would be much better than the week or 2 I was assuming it would be... o.0 I hope it's that long.
     
  22. Question from a new beggar......

    Do you get the rares and semi rares just from saying trick or treat? I've been at it for a little while on Origin and have a ton of candy, but nothing else? I do have GM begging...

    *edit* just got a pumpkin pizza from an npc in Brit

    Just say trick or treat. The begging gives you a chance at the rare items.

    Sent by nasty twin to TC1's Magincia moongate as well. Managed to quickly recall home alive. Initially was a tad annoyed, but thinking back, it's probably a great afk/scripters deterrent.
     
  29. as long as you don't crash I can live with that, but hate when I crash during recalling.

    Unless I messed up something along the way (hopes not!!) you shouldn't be teleported to Magincia anymore.

    Awesome thanks.

    I also want to say this is one of the best halloweens ever. Between the quest, pumpkins and new trick or treat items I am having a blast. You guys did an awesome job this year. :thumbup:

    If you have GM begging and you say Trick or Treat to an NPC you have a small (5% or less) chance to get a special item. Pictures of the 3 that GM beggars only get are in my first post in this thread. Without GM begging you have no chance to get those items.

    Thought I'd toss this out there to make Trick or Treating a bit easier.

    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=164641

    Astryl has posted an awesome macro for working begging that could easily be adapted for Trick or Treating. Just replace the Use Skill > Begging with Say > Trick or Treat.

    Only hitch is the macro will only work if you are using the new targeting system. I have turned it on for my beggar because it makes working Heartwood about 10,000 times easier. No more missed clicks and having to wait out a timer because I targeted the floor by mistake when the NPC moved at the last second.

    !!!!

    *code tweak*

    If ( isTrickOrTreating AND (player == Gareth))
    {
    dropHandHeldItem; // hopefully it was good and he'll cry for losing it
    teleportChances = 105%; // just to be sure!
    teleportToDestination = Somewhere no one can come rez him; // he asked for it!
    killPlayer; // owned 1v1!
    lootPlayerDry; // Cuz I have no shame!
    talkSmackToPlayersGhost; // Yes, I'm also a griefer!
    }

    Woot! The refugees brought their candy!

    A little tip: Start at the West gate. Mark a rune and work your way South. Recall back when you get to the end of the camp. They will be reset by then. Even if you get teleported you always get kicked to the Ter Mur moongate. Smack dab in the middle of.... more refugees! You'll be reelin in the loot as fast you you can thump the macro :)

    NOT a biggie, but I have also received a North/South small web on my GM beggar. Not sure if that's a difference between GM and non-GM, but I do have one compared to four of the other East/West ones.

    Got two small webs today from my beggar at 93..3.

    On a side note, I have not gained in forever. Is this the wall or was there a change with the patch yesterday? I am talking about 10 hours without a gain.

    Just keep at it. One will drop eventually. Its less than a 5% chance to get one of the rare items (provided they didn't change things from last year).

    Two grim warnings in @3000 trick or treats for me so far. Hard to keep track with my bro nabbing my candy.
