In this year's event, a Death Druid seeks your help in rekindling ancient stories. Listen carefully as she regales you with dark tales, taking you on this year's spooky questline. With the help of the old Librarian, she will offer you 52 quests in total.
You'll receive 30 rush quests, and then 22 quests, with one appearing each day. Quester beware, you're in for a scare!
This year's Halloween season, we've transformed the skeletal questline of past years into a monster event. An old ghastly library has to be uncovered, so this time you'll need to exchange candies for special tools in order to get rid of thick cobwebs blocking your path to some rare treasures.
Upon opening the event window, you will see the dusty library filled with bookshelves and cobwebs. Make your way through it, cleaning the cobwebs with the tools available on the left side of your event screen: A wand, a broomstick, and a cauldron.
Use the wand to clear a single cobweb tile at a time. A broomstick can be used on an empty tile to clear an entire column unless there is a bookshelf in the way. A cauldron clears all surrounding tiles, but like the broomstick, cannot clear bookshelves, so use your tools wisely!
Trick or Treat isn’t the only way to earn candies at Halloween! Complete event quests and you will be rewarded with candies that you can use to exchange in the Witch’s Shop, in order to get more tools to help you to uncover hidden prizes. Use them wisely, as each tool has a specific area of effect that helps you to make your way through the library, where you'll find hidden Pumpkins that contain rewards of different values, as well as coveted Potion Vials.
You can also find candies in regular incidents around or in the outskirts of your city.
Getting more tools
You can find more tools in the library itself, but there is also a way to exchange your candies for more tools. Press the -Button to open the Tool Shop. Here, you can either purchase single tools for your candies or buy bundles that give you a better deal!
For the first time in an event, you will now collect multiple short questlines (books) as rewards within the tile mini-game (these are in addition to the conventional questline), and at the end of each questline, a special reward should be granted to you. This also means that you'll be able to potentially work on multiple quests simultaneously.
These Storybooks can be found while advancing through the lost library, and whenever you collect one of them, it will be available to activate in your library, which can be accessed in the main event window. You can activate simultaneously as many questlines you want, as long as they're not the same! When you finish one, a check-mark is shown next to that book. You can find and collect more than one of each book, and their chance of appearance may vary depending on their rareness (there are regular, silver and golden books).
Many different rewards await you on your way through the library, but they are hidden behind cobwebs. To see them, you will need to dust them away. If they're still covered, you won't be able to see if a cobweb hides rewards.
As you uncover tiles, you will be in with a chance to unveil a Pumpkin, more tools (Wands, Broomsticks and Cauldrons) to aid your progress, Avatars, Potion Vials, or Books. Hover your mouse over Pumpkins to find out what is on offer in each one. Once you've uncovered a reward fully, click on it to claim your prize. Be careful! Make sure you don't advance deeper into the library without uncovering the rewards you want. Once you go too far, there is no going back, and you'll lose sight of the reward.
|Potion Vials are a special prize to uncover that will bring you closer to the Grand Prize reward. Once you reach 20 Potion Vials, you will receive the Grand Prize which is displayed at the top of the event window.|
|Tools can also be found among the cobwebs. You can find all the tools of the event!|
|Pumpkins come in a variety of different styles. Once uncovered, they will have a random reward for you and provide the chance to win the Daily Special. Tapping the pumpkin or hovering the mouse over it also reveals what it may contain.|
|Avatars are available from previous Halloween Events and can also be uncovered on your journey.|
|Books can also be revealed and collected, providing you with mini quests to complete. Solve one of every book's questline to receive the Librarian Reward.|
