:jack_o_lantern: SECRET WORLD LEGENDS PUMPKIN HUNT :jack_o_lantern:

When/Where: Sunday October 28th, 2018 12:00pm (EST) in Agartha by the Station Master
Be sure to tune in with The Cape Radio for some extra Halloween good listenings!

How it works:
Teams of up to 4 people will hunt and collect up to 10 pumpkins scattered through a specific zone clues POSTED HERE. Find all pumpkins faster than other teams in your zone and you’ll win! This event will be streamed on Twitch by Funcom.

  • Your team will be randomly assigned a zone for the pumpkin hunt.

  • Please meet in Agartha at 12:00pm (EST) on October 28th. Once your team is gathered, we will transfer you to your assigned zone. DO NOT MOVE AFTER YOU ARE ZONED.

  • This forum post will be edited to show hints for your zone at exactly 13:00(EST). You can simply click on the arrow to show hints for your zone.

  • YOU MAY BEGIN AFTER YOU RECEIVE THE PUMPKIN HUNTER BUFF. You cannot pick up pumpkins without this buff. I will start buffing you at 1pm EST but you may get it shortly after since I will need to zone to you.

  • There will be 10 hints per zone for the locations on the pumpkins. How you choose to find them is then up to you and your teamwork!

  • EACH TEAMMATE MUST INTERACT WITH THE PUMPKINS. Once you find a pumpkin, each member needs to interact with it to pick it up.

  • There are decoy pumpkins. A message will tell you if you interacted with the wrong one. :slight_smile:

  • So if you have a team of 4, you will have 40 pumpkins by the end. If you have a team of two, you will have 20.

  • To win, the pumpkins need to be traded to your team leader. The team leader must then go back to Agartha and trade the stack of pumpkins to Spynosaur, who will be there waiting for you by the Station Master. She will then mark your team’s completion.

  • There will be one winner per zone (one in Blue Mountain, one in Savage Coast, and so on). The fastest team in your zone will win.

  • Even if a winner has been announced for your zone, keep going! We’ll post team completion places.

  • Once you trade in your pumpkins, you’re free to stick around and party it up at The Rooted Groove in Agartha with DJ Nexus. We’ll be movin’ and groovin’ to their station!

Rules:

  • No more than 4 people to a team. You may have less than 4.
  • Your team can communicate through Discord, tells, or however you wish.
  • We discourage giving hints or location answers to other teams in your playfield.
  • Do not not leave your zone to find other pumpkins in different zones. Pumpkins in each zone are labeled and named per zone, so it’ll be obvious in any case.
  • YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN
  • This is just a fun event, so please be a team player and play nicely/don’t cheat.

The Prize(s):

Participation:
One (1) Haunted Grin t-shirt, White (cosmetic item) (no retail value)
And a small item memento (does not take inventory space)(no retail value)

Playfield winner(s):
One (1) Jack Boone Agent

Odds of winning will be determined by number of entries.
