  • Gotta mark it on my calendar so I don't forget to play. I've only been to one Halloween event, and that was the very first one. Can't wait to see the Mad King, flippen love that guy.

  • Please let us get the Witch's Hat again this year. You returned the Wizard hat for 7 days earlier this year, so why not return the Witch hat for halloween?

    Are you going to remove content just like you did in past years? Or do you plan to implement them back and/or add new features? It's not exactly fun to repeat the very same events over and over again every year...

    All of these major annual events have been nerfed while others haven't seen the light of day since Season 1. Don't you want to keep players busy and happy while focusing on the bigger picture of brand-new content?

    Ah, this would also be the perfect opportunity to bring those School Uniforms as outfits, no? Or are you still going to leave us fans in the dark?

    Planned in doing so last year but... change of plans last minute.

    Anything dead related is always awesome! (Minus certain times with the Risen in Orr...)

    You're in for a treat then. There's a reason I call Halloween in GW2 Lootoberfest. :D

    I don't even care if it's rehashed content. Running the labyrinth is fun for me. :3

    Will you bring back the Lunatic Guard Outfit in the gemstore?

    Wishlist:
    Everything that kills me should be nerfed
    Remove all time gates - I play more than some people yet I receive the same rewards per day/week (PvP/WvW tickets etc)
    ANET developments/events and everything else should be in a schedule with the time I play

  • Will be my first Halloween in GW2!!
    Anything i can get except cash shop items ?

  • Ooooh boy rev up your candy gobblers!

  • @Gaile Gray.6029 Will there be a better version of the Labyrinth this year? 3 years ago there was a realy nice farm train, because loot and mobs really was worth it. The last 2 years the amount of Loot and Mobs decreased so much, that farming feels boring and not worth... Have you changed anything? Maybe even new content still dreams

  • Again...people qq about daily JP on mad king tower xD

    Yay, I cant wait to play the exact same event content we had for years!!! :blush:

    Copy+paste events suits ANet for their laziness.

"Keep Ascalon in your heart." "May the Gods protect you." "Be blessed by the Six."

    These seasonal events have been lacking since launch.

    There isnt much fun thing to do at all.
    You do a seasonal jumping puzzle, killed a few seasonal mobs, and then you're already bored.

    That's fine by me, since I rarely have time to play during holidays. If there was more to it, I probably wouldn't get it done in time.

    Here's hoping The Mad King's audio volume is fixed for Mad King Says. Love that event.

    and/or that he does not slam people further away than chat range

    New to the game? Feel free to give a yell if you need PVE help.

    what are the odds we'll see a boots version of the shackles?

    How is my necromancer supposed to live without a second set of shackles?

  • Can we have something new please and not the same event? it has been 5 years now always the same,can you change it by addind something new?

    Yes, the Halloween events all drop candy corn, which is used as a currency to buy minis, 20-slot bags, outfits or skins, and candy corn nodes for your home instance. You can see what has been offered before here.

    The events also drop utility boosts that are useful enough to be worth keeping a stack for year-round use.

    Good luck, have fun.

    I'm to scared to ask.... so i wont :S

  • In game events are my favorite; especially Halloween. I have a lot of fun every year. Please consider, if not this year, then in the future, bringing back Reaper's Rumble and The Lunatic Inquisition. It's what originally got me into trying PvP (the Reaper's Rumble map was awesome, it was like a mini DOTA inside an MMO) and I loved the villagers vs lunatics theme and running around the labyrinth playing manhunt, hide and go seek and survive the night. It was a very unique experience that I haven't seen other games do. I'll always remember them fondly. Looking forward to it either way.

    It was just a suggestion; not everyone knows about Halloween/Wintersday Outfits. If offering information is 'fun-sucking', sobeit.

    You are innocent nor blameless no longer, now I will have to think of you as Ludicrum Desicco.9234. Fun-Sucker now will have to be my word of the day I believe. :)

    It really is, though if we don't get any new content here is to hoping that we have new loot options and items of interest. Really do enjoy this festival but it is also one of those that the more the merrier and changes do draw people in.

    This. So much this.
    The Halloween event is by far my favourite event and is one of the only events that get me out of WvW and PvP.

    It is also a time where you get to hear commanders in the lab scream. :)

    "Hmm, the rest of the squad is not here yet but there are 2 doors right next to each other. I may as well open both of them before they get here to see what they are."

    I always told my squad to open the skeleton (?) first because I knew someone would always open the other door the moment they got there. The skeleton goes fast when you do not have to deal with the viscount but when you do it the other way around it takes forever. Plus that is almost always when Steve will show up then you have 3 things splitting the squad.

  • What a suspicious lack of candy corn in the announcement screenshots...

    ...I wonder who ate it all. HMMM

    Would be fun in WvW if mad king just started randomly going around different maps destroying everything for three weeks :) One thing I do miss though from gw1 was killing raptors for tot bags, pumpkin pie, and those cookies lol. I did always like the wintersday stuff from gw1 but sadly unless something has been done since last year but the ones with the grinches were always fun.

    3rd year and this time I hope there will be something really new and different ;p If not, then farming trick or treat bags is always , strangely fun 0.o but yeah, some , new activities would be greatly appreciated... .. it's today! uh-oh!

    Choya is love, Choya is life!

  • I am getting so excited. I can't wait. :)

    If Life gives you lemons, put the lemons in a sack and beat up Life for giving you lemons in the first place.

  • Many, many thanks to you Anet and all the development team!

    After 5 years of break with Tyria, my return was fanfares thanks to you.
    Shadow of the Mad King 2017 is, for me, very positive. I noted that the event ended on November 7th (source: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Game_updates October 17, 2017: Halloween will be active until November 7. Your Mad King says: Have a happy Halloween!), scoring me with 4/5 completed Eves. So, I would have been ready for next year. But yesterday, in the update note (https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Game_updates/2017-11-07), I discovered a one-day extension. Bam! 1 more weapon added to my small collection!
    Thank you so much!

    Here is my little record (knowing that I was away from the keyboard a short week):
    *4 weapons: 3 with the Thorn's Eves + 1 in a candy bag
    *1 set of Lunatic armor (including a piece in the tailor workshop)
    *The pain of reunion with the "amaizing" and "awesome Clocktower! :-D
    *3/4 Memoires back items
    *1 suit (thanks to candies)
    *3 Halloween Pail (2 thanks to PvP Reward Track)
    *1 mini (Tricks and Treats collection)
    *Hunting for the Palawa's Awakened, without having PoF, was more fun than expected (source of meetings in game)
    *The maze race, on foot (!!!), was an excellent challenge, but hey, no less than 3 minutes for me!
    *Not to mention the achievements points collected, wich unlocked 1 armor skin
    *I think I do not forget anything
    *These were nice moments and I can't wait the Wintersday return ... Except his puzzle! :-D

    A suggestion maybe, could you make the weapons found in the candy bags not account-bound.
    I luckyly found a hammer, but it's unsuitable for any of my 5 characters. Sad. Account-bound, I can't sell it in the Black Lion Marcket. If not, this weapon would have become the Top the Cake.

    Madly yours,
    MJ, Emissary of the Mad King.
