As you can see, the event window contains 6 main elements. They are:
- This is the Candy Counter. You can look at the amount of Candy you currently have over here.
- This indicates the Grand Prize. It is obtained after collecting 20 Potion Vials from the cobwebs.
- The Daily Special may be found over here. At any given day, it is obtainable from all Pumpkins. It changes every day.
- This is the Tool Counter. You can see here how many tools of each kind, i.e. Wand, Broomstick and Cauldron you currently possess.
- Clicking on this opens the Tool Shop. Here, Candy can be exchanged for more Tools to continue exploring the room.
- This is the main Play Area. All the action takes place here. You have to clear the cobwebs, advance through the room and uncover lucrative prizes on the way.
- This opens the Library in which the books found in the Play Area are collected.
The mechanics of this event are similar to the Archaeology Event. To put it in a nutshell, the event involves playing a minigame, in which the player has to clean and explore the lost library which goes on infinitely. On the way you will encounter items hidden behind cobwebs which might be of value. Some of these are Potion Vials which help in progressing towards the Grand Prize. The player needs to use certain tools or implements for clearing cobwebs, which may be purchased using Candy. Each aspect is explained in detail in the following sections.
Clearing the Way- Tools
To progress on the event map, the player needs to clear cobwebs in the room. They can do this with the help of certain tools which clear different parts of the room. There are 3 tools, namely:
The Wand can clear only one tile of cobwebs at a time. It is useful if one wants to obtain a certain prize. It cannot work on bookshelves.
The Broomstick clears a column of cobweb tiles, provided there is at least one empty tile in that column. It only clears the tiles which are not blocked by a bookshelf, and are in line with the empty tile. If there is a bookshelf tile in the way, it will be blocked from reaching any tiles below or above it. The advantage of this is is that a large number of tiles can be cleared in one go, while the disadvantage is that if a bookshelf tile blocks its path, it cannot work beyond it.
The Cauldron is useful when one wants to clear tiles on a large scale. It can be placed only on an empty tile, and clears all adjacent 7 tiles. However, it doesn't clear those tiles which are bookshelves.
How do I get Tools?
One must remember that depending on the situation, one might have different preferences for the tool required to be used. Tools are distinctive in the fact that they cannot be obtained from the rewards of quests. Instead, they have to be bought using the event currency, Candy. Tools can be obtained from the Tool Shop, highlighted in the picture. The shop sells individual items as well as 2 sets of the tools, with differing costs. It is important to keep in mind that tools cannot be purchased using diamonds. The individual costs have been mentioned above and the prices and components of the sets are mentioned below.
- 7 Wands + 3 Broomsticks + 2 Cauldrons for 195 Pieces of Candy
- 20 Wands + 8 Broomsticks + 8 Cauldrons for 395 Pieces of Candy
Rewards and Prizes
The cobwebs contain several prizes and rewards of interest to the player. There are 4 kinds of prizes which are found behind the cobwebs, namely:
- Potion Vials - They contribute to the Grand Prize total. The player needs to collect 20 such vials in order to obtain the grand prize.
- Pumpkins - They are like the chests of other events. Different pumpkins contain different items and there are different chances of winning these items.
- Tools - Individual tools, i.e. Wand, Broomstick and Cauldron may be also obtained from the cobwebs.
- Portraits from previous Halloween events
- Quest Books - A chance to win additional Prizes
Two things to keep in mind. First, darkened areas, containing cobwebs, do not show prizes hidden beneath those cobwebs. However, cobwebs that have been fully exposed by using tools on adjacent tiles clearly show the prize that lies beneath. So it is not necessary to remove every cobweb in lit areas, only the ones with desired prizes and those directly obstructing your path forward. Second, after cleaning up a cobweb tile, the prize does not automatically fall into the inventory. The player has to manually click on the prize so that it is finally obtained. Also, as the player moves further in the room, the earlier cleared areas go out of sight and are finally left behind. Discovered prizes will then automatically fall into your inventory
Besides the above, a Grand Prize exists which is obtained upon collection of 20 Potion Vials. A Daily Special is also available which changes every day and is obtainable from all pumpkins. They are mentioned in detail in the Prize Systems section.
The player may find books when clearing the cobwebs in the lost library. These books are stored here.
Each of the found books presents the player with an additional quest line. The quest lines of different books may be activated at the same time. The quest line of the same book may be repeated as many times as the book was found. The additional quest lines have to get started manually by the player.
There are four different "Normal Books", three different "Silver Books" and one "Golden Book" to be found. The Silver Books hereby are rarer than the Normal Books and the Golden Book is rarer than the Silver Books.
All quest lines consist of 5 quests each.
If all quest lines have been completed at least once, the Librarian Reward may be collected.
The currency of this event is Candy. They are different from currencies of other events in the fact that Candy by itself is not used for clearing cobwebs. Over here, it plays an indirect role. It is used for buying the tools that clear the cobwebs.
They can also be bought using diamonds:
- 40 Pieces of Candy = 200 Diamonds (5.00 diamonds per 1 Candy)
- 150 Pieces of Candy = 700 Diamonds (4.66 diamonds per 1 Candy)
- 500 Pieces of Candy = 1995 Diamonds (3.99 diamonds per 1 Candy)
Expected Candies to receive during the Halloween Event
Beginning of the Event 120 Pieces of Candy
23 Daily Logins times 30 Pieces of Candy
Completing 52 Quests times 50 Pieces of Candy
(The last three Quests offer an extra 60 Pieces between them)
Milestone Bonus of 500 and 750 Pieces of Candy
Giving a possible Total of 4720 Pieces of Candy
The event features two questlines presented by the Death Druid. The Main Questline and the Daily Questline. Every solved quest grants the player some Candy. The quests have to be solved in the order they are presented and no quests are abortable. Additionally for this Event extra Quests can be found in every book that you collect, once a book is opened the Quest inside cannot be aborted.
The Daily Questline, you will give you one quest per day, for the 22 days of the event. These Quests will stack until you have completed the Main Questlines. So you will not miss any if you do not complete the Main Questlines on the first day. After completing the Main Questline, you will be able to complete stacked Daily Quests without any delay and after that, one quest per day.
Note: Where the word "some" appears in the quest text below, the amount differs depending on the Age the player is at. The Lower Numbers in brackets are for BA. The second number in brackets is for the ME unless stated otherwise[AGE].

InnoGames have used the 2019 Halloween Event to reintroduce some avatars from previous Halloween events. The avatars are obtained when a player clears a tile with a portrait frame while brushing away the cobwebs, in a manner similar to obtaining the pumpkins. Clicking on a clean avatar icon presents the player with an avatar. Please note you will only receive an avatar that you do not currently have, if you have all the Avatars then you are unlikely to find a buried portrait.
|Possible Portraits from Previous Halloween Events|
When every single one of the eight different book quest lines is completed, a special Librarian Reward may be collected, which consists of
The Librarian Reward may be collected for every full set of eight different completed library quest lines. The second and further rewards do not contain the Death Druid's avatar though.
Daily Special Prizes can be won when selecting Pumpkins. During this Event the Daily Special does not change at midnight like in other Events. It remains for exactly 24 hours of the Event before changing. The current Daily Special may be obtainable from all Pumpkins during its 24-hour period.
During this Event some Players will find that their local time will change (e.g. BST goes to GMT) The gaining of an hour in the northern hemisphere will not give any extra time in the game though, it may actually appear to finish an hour earlier on the last day than it started on the first day. The reverse is also true for those living in the southern hemisphere though some have already changed their clocks.
