Hey Beans, it's spooky season and we are excited to bring you a new Halloween quest! And of course it wouldn't be Halloween on JellyRO without some of the classic Pumpkin Festival minigames. As usual we've changed up the prizes a bit, so check it out and see what you can spend your Pumpkin Festival Certificates on this year. 

Just a side note that Real Life has been hitting all of us on the staff pretty hard lately, but we're still dedicated to making JellyRO a fun place to be. While we deal with change and various matters in our lives, progress may be slow, but we will get our bearings and find a way forward.

 

The Lost Treasures of Doom

When some travelers from Payon never made it to Alberta, rumors quickly spread of a spooky path leading into a dense forest south of Payon (/navi pay_fild01 346/136) that had not been there last month. Many brave explorers wanted to be the first to chart this unknown trail, but few returned. They spoke of a twisted labyrinth with the ruins of an old manor house near its center. When asked how they made it out of the forest, most could not remember, but one adventurer recalled what he could only describe as a menacing darkness that devours souls. What ancient evil lurks in the manor? Is there a way out of the Forest of Lost Souls? And how has this nightmarish realm found its way into ours? 

 

We may never have all the answers, but an eccentric old man who recently showed up in Payon (/navi payon 142/228) seems to know something about the manor and what lies inside of it. However, he is mostly interested in treasure and promises to reward anyone crazy brave enough to retrieve it for him. You're not afraid of the dark, are you?

 

Pumpkin Festival

If that quest is 2spooky4u, we also have many of the usual Halloween festivities with a fresh batch of rewards for you to enjoy. 

 

Earn Pumpkin Festival Certificates by participating in various mini-games and exchange them for spooktacular rewards from Hermann, the Ticket Master in Alberta (/navi alberta 118/70). Visit him to see what he offers!

 

  • Powerful Pumpkin Pies: Monsters will sometimes drop Edible Pumpkin or Raw Dough which can be used to make pumpkin pies that give you a temporary stat boost. Bring these items to Casper, the Traveling Cook (/navi alberta 114/71) to get some pies and earn one Pumpkin Festival Certificate each day.
  • Mischievous Ghosts: Every so often, Mysterious Pumpkins will appear in the towns of Payon, Aldebaran, and Yuno. Some of the pumpkins are actually ghosts in disguise! Catch them and claim the Certificates they stole!
  • Trick or Treat: Available in Alberta, Geffen, Izlude, Niflheim, and Rachel. Find a mask salesman in town, gather the required items, and put on a mask before you knock on a door. Each house will give you a Certificate and maybe something else too. Trick or treating is limited to 10 houses each day per character. Be careful in Niflheim... they may have treats, but also plenty of tricks.
  • Old Cobby's Spirit: Find the great pumpkin trolling the field south of Prontera.

 

New Halloween Suits

You may be familiar with the Summer Suits and Santa Suits that make annual appearances. Ever wanted to see how you'd look as one of those legendary Third Job characters? Now you can! We made some Halloween costumes that look just like the outfits worn by two different Third Jobs. Players will have many opportunities to earn special boxes (Event C. Box 1 & Event C. Box 2) that contain these costumes. You may recall that we featured Guillotine Cross and Minstrel/Wanderer when we introduced these full-body costumes last year. Which Third Jobs will be featured this year? You'll just have to find out!

The boxes work just like Summer/Santa Suits. When you use/open it, your character's outfit is immediately changed and you cannot attack or use skills. The costume and effects disappear after 10 minutes. If you obtain these boxes, make sure you use them while you can because they will be removed during the next maintenance.  

 

Niff Race

Who's up for a thrilling race through Niflheim? Players will have a chance to participate in this minigame during various hosted events this month. You can bring any character, but keep in mind that this is not an event for novices. To enter the race you must be wearing one of the Halloween Suits mentioned above, but you don't need to bring your own because it will be provided, as will a small supply of healing and speed potions. As you run for your life, look for the Energy spots we have placed throughout the map to get aggressive monsters off your tail. As is tradition, the winner of the race will earn a Costume Niflheim Bunny Hat

 

Event content will disappear on November 1, 2021!

Halloween Event Update

 

We have heard the cries of those lost in the forest and decided it was time to give players a shortcut to finishing the Lost Treasures of Doom quest, since the event will be over by tomorrow evening (November 1st). You can find a Friendly Ghost near pay_fild01 346, 136 that will quickly guide you to the haunted house hidden within the forest.

 

We appreciate your feedback and valiant attempts to get through the forest maze. Only a couple players completed the quest before the shortcut was added. Parceero was the first to find the lost treasures and bring them back to the Collector. For that, he has been given a bonus reward of 1 Special Item Ticket!

 

Though no more Special Item Tickets will be given out for this event, we hope this update will motivate a few more players to finish the quest and earn 100 Pumpkin Festival Certificates, which is enough to get some of the mid-tier prizes from Herman (alberta 118, 70).

 

 

The Lost Treasures of Doom Quest Guide

 

Here is a quick guide to help you get through the quest. It may contain some minor spoilers, but it's not a complete walkthrough. You will still need to locate the items in the manor on your own.

Spoiler

  • Find the Collector at Payon 142, 228
    • Choose "How can I help?"
      • He tells you about the forest and warns that you won't be able to teleport out of it or use items.
      • He also warns you that none of your skills will work in the house, and you will have to avoid ghosts that will try to slow you down.
      • You need to find a Bronze Cup, Silver Box, and Gold Necklace inside the house.
      • You will only have 4 minutes inside the house before it kicks you out and you'll have to go back and try again.
      • He says he will give 100 Pumpkin Festival Certificates for retrieving the treasures.
    • When he asks if you agree to retrieve the items for a reward, choose "Yes"

  • Find the Spooky Path and the Friendly Ghost near pay_fild01 346, 136
    • [HARD MODE] If you choose to take the spooky path by yourself, be sure to take notes as you go. A strategy guide for the maze would take a while to put together so I'll skip over that and assume most of you will use the shortcut.
      • The minimap pictured below shows the section you are trying to reach. Everyone's personal maze ends there. If you manage to get there, click on the dark portal to enter the house.
      • If all else fails, you can use the Reset Position tool on our website to get out of the forest. First logout from the game, login on cp.jellyro.com, go to My Account, select the character, click Reset Position in the menu just above "Viewing Character".
    • [EASY MODE] If you want to be guided (warped) to the house, talk to the Friendly Ghost.
      • When the ghost mentions showing you the way to the house, choose "Yes please!"
        • You will be warped to the entrance of the house, which is a dark portal. If you don't see it, it might just be covered by fog. Move your mouse near the bottom edge of that map section to find it.
        • Click the dark portal to get a description of the house and choose Enter to go inside.

  • Once you are inside the house, a descriptive dialog will pop up. The timer does not start until the dialog closes.
    • You will find the treasures by looking for various clickable objects and getting close enough to investigate them. Most of the time you will find nothing. When you find a treasure, remember where you found it because if you fail to find all three in time, you will have to get it from the same place again.
    • Be careful where you walk because certain spaces trigger a ghost to pop up as an illustration in the middle of your screen for a couple seconds, as well as Curse status for 10 seconds. These ghost triggers reset after 30 seconds so most of the time you can avoid hitting the same one again.
    • If you run out of time, you will eventually be warped out.
  • When you are warped back to pay_fild01, you'll have a dialog pop up. Choose either "Challenge accepted!" or "Think it over", and then talk to the Friendly Ghost to go back and try again.
    • It may take a few tries to get all the treasures, but once you know where they are, it will be much easier.
    • Once you get all three, you will be teleported to safety.
  • Go back to the Collector for your reward!
