    There hasn't been too much said about it and I am a little worried that Grimm isn't around this year, but I am still looking forward to it.

    Something like the Conjurer's Garb Arc, that was really fun.
    Maybe add a new item...invulnerable Character Token....that would really improve my gameplay.:danceb:

    Hey Devs.... maybe a little spoiler action here......

    I'm excited. We just returned a couple months ago so I have never done the fighting pumpkins/masks before. Really looking forward to it. :)

    Anything that gets it so the screen gets a little laggy (just a little bit). I like seeing tons of other people around. Bennu did an impromtu event last Saturday I think; no rewards, but still cool to partake.

    Please bring back conjurer's items (the 10 hci undead talisman and the mr2 dci5 robe!)

    It's been 3-4 years, there should be another chance of getting it.

    UO shouldn't have any rares as far as equipment goes.

    Wouldn't mind if those decoration rares in the billions range are not showing up anymore. But having equipments not showing up forever are really unacceptable.

    Possibly a Non Undead trinket :eek:

    Yea but some of us doesn't have one. So lets add put it back for us to get as its been many years already.

    I dont mind it is whether an undead trinket or a random slayer trinket.

    As long as its being put back as having the same mod " 10 hci, 20 di, hpr 2, str 1, (random slayer)"

    I am fine with this.

    EX-CI-TED!!! Hopefully, the quests are soloable. And hopefully, not only deco again. Deco is nice - but... GARBS are nicer ;) Last year I did 2-3 days killing Killer Pumpkins, but I became a bit boring soon. This year I really hope for something like mini-undead-champs on the graveyards with chances for deco- and artie-drops and perhaps challenging PvM-Battles (not only endless hitpoints...). But I think they will indeed bring something really nice, I have trust in them...

    Best would be to bring back all Helloween-Items that ever appeared + some new ones on the top. Its 15th anni, folks - time for something REALLY awesome!

    I'm looking forward to seeing what's going to happen this year, but with a certain degree of caution. Different people have a totally different definition of 'nice' and whatever the team have in store for us this year, someone, somewhere is going to hate it and consider it 'lame'.

    If I were a dev,I'd run a limited time halloween themed champ spawn. The champion would be a skeletal dragon that I would rehue to a charcoal color. The power of Rikktor times three. Possible levels of the spawn:

    Level One: Zombies,skeletons,dire wolves,giant spider,and mummies.

    Level Two: Banshee,Lich,Skeletal Knight(powered up),Rotting Corpse(Paragon powered).

    Level Three: Rehued Treefellow(evil),Revenant Lion,Werewolf(would look the same as if a player was wearing the bloody sash),Lich Lord(paragon powered).

    Level Four: Succubus,Ancient Lich Lord,Dread Spider,normal skeletal dragons.

    Champ level: Skeletal Dragon that is rehued and powered up.

    As for the reward for those that finished the spawn,I would get the art team to flesh out a staff and shield that looked like it was fashoned from bone. It would have decent mods but not overpowering in any way.

    Where would you locate that?
    And I have to admit, if that was the halloween event, I wouldn't be doing it.

    There is all that room in Malas that is empty and that no one can place housing. I am sure that would be large enough to play with. Why wouldn't you join in that halloween champ event? I would say that a champ spawn would only be one of a few offerings for halloween.

    I would also add a couple of harpischord rolls/Music box gears that would have a halloween theme to it. Erie music to fit into the season. Something like this,perhaps.

    hehe, because I'm a wimp, because I spend most of my time alone. Too damn scared of letting people down and not pulling my weight to even try to be part of a group. I've always admitted I'm not a very good player.

    Champ spawn would be good. Just not in Fel. I get so pissed off with doing a spawn then the reds roll in butcher everyone and steal them! I know that's part of the game and I'm not moaning about it. I just think for event like this is should be in tram.

    I solo play 100% of my time now as well. I work late so I get home well after everyone one else is sleeping. I understand where you are coming from. As far as being a good player,I'm not either. My niche has always been the healer/rezzer. I have a mystic/SW/mage that is pretty well geared and can keep a group alive throughout a champ spawn if my targets don't panic and run off screen.

    When I saw the Champ-Outline I thought the same: Not soloable, FAR to mighty :). I am not a good player too, loosing orientation soon and tending to panic. Wimps of the world, unite!

    Petra...Petra...Petra...you, of all people know how we are....

    If the Devs handed out Solid Gold Bars, some would complain how heavy they are...

    But the finicky UO base is what makes UO....UO....

    Simple solution..on login you receive a super uber artifact..there's an event..and they make trick or treating awesome..there! gOD I'd be an awesome dev..lmao no in all seriousness let's do a weekend cross shard Halloween competition like the Britain invasion way back when but in Malas with some undead stuff..items should be limited to robes sashes apron cloaks..maybe sandals/boots..how about an single mod whetstone not just for DI..anything under Max intensity can be removed a 1 use deed..and only can use one per item..then sell them in clean up to suppress the RNG whiners..

    Well, they already promised +5 stats for later so its just a matter of time.

    That cure quest is the one where the Dev just refuse to respond and waited for all the pissed off people to get tired of posting and pretended it was a success and nothing was wrong. So I am going to bring it up every chance I can.

    Im not getting my hopes up... i thought maybe they would do something great for 15th anniv but they just give us alittle backpack gift and dungeon revamp that has nothing to do with the anniv.

    You know what gets me now... if they gave us Heritage tokens because some folk cried about not having a ladder...

    Why can't they return to give us the Conjurers Trinket, Grimoire and Robes since there are MANY folk who don't have those... and they are actually USEFUL and a big part of many peoples gear...

    As well there are now tons of Tamers out there who don't have a dread warhorse either.... something I also thing NEEDS to be remedied.... and not by giving us a lame pet the like the Bane Dragon which honestly while an interesting pet is NO SUBSTITUTE for the Warhorse...

    It's the best event ever if they have the Conjurer's this year, otherwise it'd be another boring year only hunting for masks. :sad3:

    I would (speaking as a tamer back from a 5-6 year break) love the chance for a nice Dread, cloak or trinket, especially tied in with a hunt/quest

    All i like to see is a 24 hours or maybe even 2 days Event on all shards with hundrets of people running around, screaming in pain or joy, lots of fighting, and some new rewards that either are usefull and/or have nice hues for the blink..blink factor...and have no class outsided pls...just make it so its HARD but still soloable for every class...some people just dont want to need 5 friends to have a chance for a HW gift ;)

    And yeah, i dont mind if you introduce old armor/weps again as drops - but DONT make them ephemeral plz lol

    And something for All Classes ...
    As well as a great mage/Mystic cloak or Sampire/fighter trinket, maybe something for BARDS or maybe a tameable skelly dragon for us TAMERS..
