Did you think that this month in Black Desert Online would go without a Halloween event? We all know that there’s an unwritten rule somewhere that states that every MMORPG needs to have a Halloween-themed event, and the newest patch notes have highlighted just that.
The patch notes are quite big, so you probably want to take a look at them yourself, as we will be focusing on the Halloween event, the prizes for participating, and why they are worth it.
As always, the Halloween spirit gets celebrated with the increase of the spookiness factor, like the red moon that gives birth to eerie, mysterious cracks that can be found all over the world of Black Desert Online. You get this uneasy feeling when you walk the land as if this world is starting to merge with another. Don’t worry, there is nothing terrible going on, it’s just a way to get the atmosphere just right for this event. The event will last until November 1st, 08:59 UTC, and during this time expect to see a lot of Halloween-themed decorations, a huge and beautiful crimson moon can be seen while the event lasts, ominous music will send chills down your spine in Velia, Heidel, Calpheon City, Altinova, and Valencia City, and a certain White Witch will have a mission for you.
Players can find Gueldia the White Witch at Alejandro Farm, and if you speak to her she will ask you to capture and defeat the vile Black Witch, Isabella. This quest is only available once per Family, and your reward is the Halloween Gift Box. The Halloween Gift Box includes various items like Tungrad Earring, Red Nose’s Armor, Magic Crystal of Infinity – Experience, Tree Spirit Belt, Witch’s Earring, Mark of Shadow, and so on. Defeating Isabella can also give you a Pumpkin Gift Box and a Halloween Pumpkin Cookie.
There are many event-related quests that can be done in order to receive unique Halloween head-gear like the Scarecrow Mask, Undamaged Pumpkin, Wolf Nose, Devil Horn Headband, and so on. Awakening Skills, Halloween Costumes, and Pets got Halloween effects, and you will see a special Bat effect when you use your Awakening skills that consume Black Spirit’s Rage 100%.
