Halloween Event 2022

Trick-or-Treat Updates

  • Five new elite boss enemies have been added to the enemy roster when Trick-or-Treating above Level 25:
    • Ancient Vampires
    • Spectral Werewolves
    • Arisen Mummies
    • Crone Matriarchs
    • Hollow Reapers
  • These new elite bosses reward five times the influence and experience when defeated.
  • These new elite bosses defeats give credit for the new and old event defeat badges for their enemy type groups.
  • Spectral Werewolf defeats count as both a werewolf and a ghost defeat.
  • Halloween Werewolf enemies will throw coffins using their Hurl power instead of boulders.
  • All new Tier 1 prestige costume appearances have had Halloween temporary power versions added that drop from the event and are also sold by the Halloween salvage vendors.
  • Using a permanent prestige costume will count for all Halloween event criteria that requires you to be wearing a costume such as receiving the Whispered Rumor tip or earning the Tricked Out badge.
  • Halloween costume temporary powers have had 'Halloween' removed from their power names to make them easier to read in the power menu.
  • Halloween salvage vendors have began offering the Fir Bolg prestige costume reward for 10 Prismatic Aether Particles and 50 of each Halloween salvage type. This costume will be available each year for the duration of October.

  • Faultline changed the title to Patch Notes for October 3rd, 2022
  • Faultline unlocked this topic

I think the thread was either moved or copypasta'd from the beta patchnotes.

 

Either that, or time travel is involved. Can't be too sure around here =P

 

EDIT: Oh, they changed the thread title. Booooo!

these changes happened yesterday on live? Today is the 4th....at least here in the US.  I'm confused and I'm hungry.

 

Well there IS a patch today, so maybe you beat them to it?

I am curious. If I recall, the last time I tried to ToT in Atlas, last year, I was able to do so. But this year, I can't. I don't see that in these patch notes. Did I miss something?

EDIT: I just saw that Faultline posted on the discord that ToT may be broken in Atlas due to the seasonal variant map system they just installed, so ToT might not work in Atlas until the next patch.

 

Original post (which may have lost some relevance given the edit above):

 

Trick-or-Treating only works if your character is within the level range of the zone. There is a list of zones and their level ranges on the wiki:

 

https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Halloween_Event/Trick_or_Treat

 

Exemplaring down works too if you want to ToT in a zone that is lower than your normal level.

 

Speaking of Trick-or-Treating, I really like that the drop table was augmented with the costumes from the purchasable list. I haven't purchased any costumes yet (not really my thing), but I have been pleasantly surprised with how cool some of the costumes I've received have been.
