    After "about a week" (read: two weeks), we've finally pushed out the small update for Halloween.

    Like last year, there will now be a chance of gaining access to rare quests when you load the quest counter. When you have access to the rare quests, you will have access to them as long as you don't leave the ship or log off. Please note that there is a cooldown on the rare quest rolls.

    Unlike last year though, we've designed our own special quests.

    Unfortunately, due to time/work-constraints, there are only 3 quests for now:
    • Caves
    • Mines
    • CCA (this one is probably subject to change)
    The others will be added as they're finished over the course of the event. For now, due to this, there will be no set end time to the end of the event, although Pioneer Halloween and Hallo Rappies are still due to end on the 7th of November.

    We hope you enjoy!

    Feedback on the quests will be appreciated, as well! They're all open to tweaks should players dislike them in any way.

    For those who are new to the server like me, can you explain with more details on how this feature works? Do we have to update the client or something? And how do I know that I got the chance for this quests? Do they have to be played by 4 people by all means? If I remake the room, do I get another chance to get one of these rare quests?

    Sorry for so many questions and thanks in advance for all the hard work.

    No need to update the client, it's server-sided.

    You'll know you have the quest because you'll see the special category at the quest counter when you load it, and it can be played by any number of players (though 4 is recommended, of course!). If you remake the room, you will still have access to the quest, but they'll be lost if you log off or change ship (this should probably be changed in the future, but busy busy).

    Does this chance reset each time you log or relog?

    They appeared for me after a few solo runs of Ep1 MA S on hard. Since I was on my lvl 44 HUney I was trying to get a few extra lvls before going to vh. I already did a few full runs of the caves with the special Quest and the xp I got is pretty good. So many spawns for such a small room... SO MANY DROPS! O_O

    I agree 100% but people who want to do this must come prepared. The whole quest is taking place in the small room with waterfalls and the players are locked in with no way out. Cure/Paralysis and proper strategy is advised since it can quickly turn into a dead body fest with Megid being casted from every corners of the room. ;)

    Once you get the Special Quest, you can spam it as much as you like it seems. Of course u need to be the party leader but u wanna farm a specific ID, just make sure to create the room under that ID then set the player with the Special Quest unlocked as the leader.

    Another tip, if you are doing CCA Special Quest, Cure/Confuse will come handy too.

    ^ Is this intended? @Matt

    I would assume so @Melirei simply because Matt specifically stated that leaving the ship/changing blocks makes you lose the chance. I could be wrong though.
