As cold winds blow across the Dreamsmoke Prairie and leaves turn in the Sutherlands, young from all over Entrath gather around their campfires to tell stories. You see, the veil is closer on this night of nights and the spirits of the dead roam freely. Some believe that the only way to stay safe is to make a maze of your words, to trap the spirits until the sun rises again and they can be laid to rest once more.
So coyotle and shin’hare pups shiver, only in part from the cold, as they swap stories of the deep and dark. One of the tales they tell is that of Stingy Jack.
Some say he is a harvest spirit driven mad by the unholy energies of zombies as they tromped through a pumpkin patch. Others say he is the result of the primal of greed, Marbaras, whose sickly energies pooled too heavy on the land.
His origins a mystery, his arrival is oft heralded by thin voices raising in chorus as children all across Entrath chant these words:
He wants your blood, your breath, your bones
Your light, your life, your warmth, your soul
Hello child, now answer me
Trick or Treat, you cannot flee
During the haunted nights in Entrath, you will receive the treat of the Stingy Jack Sleeve just for being brave enough to roam the streets in the dark. (Simply log in and you will automatically receive the sleeve!)
As the other half of the saying goes, a well-played trick deserves its own rewards. Show off your plays – and tricks – and you can earn the Dread Harvest AA card. (This means you have to play tournaments!)
Playing in dungeons across Entrath can reward players with the Stingy Jack card and its equipment pieces, the Scarecrow’s Scythe and the Corn Huskers. In the harvest season, a time of plenty, Stingy Jack wants everything. He wields his terrifying scythe and grabs hold of this treat or that with his ever-sticky gloves. Hide your harvest well, for ol’ Jack is a-coming to trick-or-treat.
To earn these rewards, champions must defeat any dungeon during the Haunted Harvest holiday:
Sleeve: The first time a player logs in during this holiday, they will receive the Stingy Jack sleeve.
Alternate Art Card: All tournaments will have a participation prize of an AA Dread Harvest card. Basically, enter a tournament, get the card.
Players that win a constructed ranked ladder match will have a 25% chance of earning an AA Dread Harvest card.
PvE Card and Equipment: Players can earn PvE items by playing in the Campaign dungeons. There is one card and two equipment items to earn. By defeating any dungeon you will earn one of the three items at random. Each of them has a percent chance to drop: 15% on the Rare Equipment, 25% on the Uncommon Equipment, and 60% on the Card.
Join the spooky-scary campfire between October 18 at 19:00 CET (10 AM PST) and November 1 at 18:59 CET (9:59am PST) to gather your harvest. Happy Haunted Harvest!
