Haunted Valour begins on Fri Oct 31 00:00:00 2014.

Synopsis:

Every year, Strythoween falls upon the day at which the barrier dividing
the Ether from our world grows weak. This particular year, the moon
Nunitari will be hidden by its sister moons in a perfect lunar eclipse,
leaving the Ether barrier in its most vulnerable state in centuries.

Fortunetellers suggest that the souls that have passed to the other side may
return...

Tiqa, as far as I know, it's just an event this year, no actual quest. Just do what your character would do and reap the benefits.

I'm trying to reap the benefits but:

- all the ghosts seem to do is stand around
- trying to kill one is pointless unless you're pinnacled and buffed

Am I missing something?

It's a 50s targeted event. I didn't have time to add all the other things I had had in mind because writing this took all the juice out of me and I won't be around for another few weeks.

To break it down, you can:
- kill the invading legions
- kill the invading knights
- kill errybody Banana

And you get to:
- see some ol folks getting honored
- feel like you're doing something for a cause
- gather items for 3 holiday-only sets

Yes, it's weird that they weren't actually fighting, but I didn't want the mobs to go and die before anyone got in there, and I don't have a way to have them fake fight right now.

To be honest I thought people would like this event. Apparently not.

I've enjoyed the event, but soloing them has been difficult and time consuming.

There seemed to be some confusion on my last post, so I wanted to clear a few things up.

First of all - This event is absolutely on of the best events we have ever had. The sets are good, the items are good and the killing is just like a winter boss but without certain death from fleeing.

Second of all - I said it was time consuming and difficult to solo, which isn't untrue, but that doesn't make it not worth it by any stretch of the imagination. These sets actually offer pretty good attributes for someone who isn't running around in level 50 unique items. Some of the items on their own are better then some difficult rares, with very few drawbacks.

Lastly - I appreciate the effort that went in to this. The behind the scenes work for this event had to have been time consuming and not at all easy. So -

Thank you very much to all who made this possible. Truly appreciated and a wonderful event.

For clarity, the Strythoween event with the count down on the forum etc. will be when the holiday double exp kicks in.

PostPosted: Fri Nov 01, 2019 7:33 pm    Post subject: Haunted Valour

I appreciate there being a Stryroween event and sets intended for level 50 characters are very tempting.

Spoiler alert - this is still an active event

I saved Valour, twice, messed up the balance a few times and even defiled the city until I got 36 items, so some spares, and finally had everything for all three sets.

Good- The back and forth yelling of ghosts is hillarious.

It is fun to see old faces and descriptions, this gives a very "players helped build this world" feel.

The "where ghost" tracking takes you to the next set of ghosts instead of getting stuck on the next closest.

Item drops were quick in the beginning.

You could jump into this event at any stage.

The ghosts had a nice mix of spells and abilities.

Bad- Some of those ghosts were very tough. 

The last set item I needed was picked up by another ghost, so I had to kill another and remember how much I dislike items stolen as soon as they drop, like a dirty Alhoon would, you know what did.

Item drops significantly slowed down after the initial run and I killed a lot of empty handed ghosts.

I did not figure out how to generate desired items (this one is on me) like how do I get that 1 ring or amulet. It seemed kinda random, but I feel like I missed the pattern.

Ugly- the net benefit of those sets. I am not posting the sets, but like the ring and amulet conquest in Timeran, they had a few drawbacks to balance out.

To summarize my opinion, I think you guys did great. 

I would like to see this event targeting like a level 40 who could solo. For example, those items dropped to level 40 and those ghosts drop about 10 levels. I believe that would put the sets about where they should be.

There are already areas for groups of level 50 characters, but if the event stays targeted to level 50, I suggest beefing up those sets to wash the drawbacks, that would make them something to murder over.

Haunted Valour is back again, but it seems that more than Valour is haunted this year...

We took some of Grayden's feedback into account for this year. Everyone should load with an item (if not, please report a bug), including the new ghosts. They have all been made a little easier, but many still retain the strength they had in life, so go in prepared. They should also be a little more lively.

I will also note that you can track for the ghosts by name or use WHERE GOODGHOST and WHERE EVILGHOST.

Feel free to report any bugs or feedback here or in game and most of all - ENJOY!

"many still retain the strength they had in life" <- does this mean Ygin is large size due to the time when she had the helm of domination and it increased size? Just curious if item bugfixes are taken into account should the stats of a ghost be based on what the character was actually like as a mortal walking the lands.

Ygin isn't size large and she isn't wearing a helm of domination.
