this is the only event all year that rewards ancient treasure keys in the monster run, i currently need about 60 and don't want to spend tokens on them! But the event is still bugged. The only way I'll wait around is if i see the pumpkin person at varanas bridge.

For those doing malatina: the rewards are always at the same pattern, as if on black fields of a black-and-white checkboard. If you start by digging out these you have much bigger chance of uncovering everything.

See here for a screenshot - pay attention to where the entrance is on this screenshot (so that you did not start wrong).

Is Little Annie in Central Varanas Missing?
She was there for a few days at the beginning of the festival. Then she vanished on all channels. After maintenance yesteray she was back (@Saoraid at least).

I don't expect the girl would just change her ways: expect her to run away anytime now... until the next maintenance.

The quests by Dorian's Farm (Shalson NPC) have a chance of giving a Pumpkin Pie during this event. Has anyone been able to get a ribbon from the pie this year? Is it just a Reni server issue? I've had 3 chances now and each time I used it I got nothing...

So much for the title this year too I guess.

Bug Reports for this exist on EU forums - seems to be global :(.

This is a somewhat shorter post of what I posted earlier today on DE.


Hello, although this is not a bug report thread it seems to be the most active one about the Pumpkin Festival and the information can be combined in here.
I would like to try to take a shortcut and get as much information as possible about ALL the problems the Pumpkin festival currently has.
Once everything is complete it will be archived in the bugforum. But every new reproducable bug from the festival or important information to the already known and isolated problems will go straight to QA.

What we gathered so far:
Pumpkin Prankster: Works. Temporarily deactivated™ due to other issues, a fix is already in the working, but we have no ETA yet.

Monster parade: Breaks at some point after maint. We tried a fix on live but it seems only to work in 50% of the cases (although the NPCs started moving again at some point again even if they were reset and stuck at the starting position). Reason it breaks seems so far "AOE spam on mob spawnpoints so the mobs die before the NPCs get any aggro from them" => NPCs wait for mobs that will not come and locks up. (Sometimes fights randomly other red mobs, especially in front of FA).
Anything else known that breaks it?

Little Annie: sometimes the NPC is available but blocked. "NPC is busy". Sometimes there are 3-4 Annies at the same time all over the festival area, but only two appear to work and do the Trick or Treat part. Sometimes again there is no Annie at all to be found in the whole festival area on all channels. Are any other states/situations known where Annie is broken?

Kaz-Event in Tagena/Silverspring: seems working. Any Problems?

Pumpkin Pie: does not give ribbons when used but ribbon exchange is part of the festival according to patch notes. Any other source of ribbons? Only the deactivated pumpkin prankster?

Mr. and Mrs. Pumpkin: Seem working, but some players reported problems. Any details available ?


We're looking into the other events of the Pumpkin festival today. Any input and details of events not working and what you observe what might cause it are welcome.

PS: Please spare us the "nothing ever gets fixed" attitude if you don't have anything to contribute to nailing down the problems. This post entirely exists to get as much information and details as possible about the problems with the pumpkin festival events so they will not appear again. This does not mean we will see the fixes already before this years' festival ends nor does it mean that we can promise the event will not have any bugs next year. Just that we're trying to nail down and eliminate as much of them as possible ;-) So if you have information, post it here.

Based on the post I just sent, what does the pumpkin prankster have to do with this one? This particular issue is new this year as we could get the ribbons from the pies last year. Now, as we can't get the ribbons this year (seems to be confirmed now), can the title either be sent to all active characters or put in the item shop during one of your specials?

No idea about putting the titles anywhere atm. What I want from this thread and posts is as much bugs from the festival as possible ;-)

That you cannot obtain titles from events that you cannot complete is only logical but not an additional bug.

The pumpkin pranksters were reported to also give ribbons. Pumpkin pie does not. The pumpkin prankster NPC, at least the one who exchanges items for candies, is currently disabled.

Now, are these the only sources for ribbons so there is no ribbon exchange possible at all? [Due to no one being able to obtain ribbons] - Then I'd just have to check if the exchange is working technically by getting some ribbons as GM. Or are there any ribbons obtainable elsewhere, and if so, does ribbon exchange as part of the festival work, just with a lower volume of exchanges due to a shortage of ribbons? Pie IS the only source. "Pumpkin Eater" title unavailable due to that. noted.

It's a matter of detailed reporting bascially.
