The harvest season is upon us and with it comes ArcheAge’s first in-game holiday event: Hallowtide! This Halloween-themed festival will be held from October 21 to November 4 when the Conquest of Auroria begins.
To set the mood, Austera and Ezna, the two major port cities of Erenor, have been decked out in the colors and sights of the season with jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin balloons, party tables, tombstones, and more. Adventurers will also discover Large Pumpkin Lanterns appearing for a short time on Halloween in central locations of both port cities. These decorations will be announced when they appear and will grant a unique holiday buff.
Want to help with the festivities? The Daru are in need of more pumpkins to decorate the event! Complete the Hallowtide Preparations daily quest to earn a Hallowtide Goodie Bag with a random selection of consumables and special event candies such as Greedy Goblin Gummies, Frankenflavor Jawbreakers, and Marshmallow Sugar Pumpkins. We also have Hallowtide cosmetic items for you and your home coming to the Marketplace, so keep your eyes peeled.
Enjoy Hallowtide, adventurers!
