Guild Wars 2 Halloween Event Guide (Spoilers)


The Halloween Event of Guild Wars 2 starts in Lion's Arch (LA) and takes place in a few different areas of the world. There are quite a few things to do for the event but not all of these things are currently added into the game. At the current point in time only Part 1 is available which has you collect 6 different clues to combine together to create a book. Which will most likely be used in the future parts. You will need to gather Candy Corn, a mineable node throughout the world to fuel the Candy-Powered Matter Meter for this quest.

Before i go any further I want to say that if you want to see pictures for this guide you will need to use the initial posting on my website:

http://www.almarsgui...rted/Halloween/

Candy Corn Farming Locations: http://www.almarsgui...ween/candycorn/


Pumpkin Carver Achievement/Title: http://www.almarsgui.../pumpkincarver/

However the entire text version will be here, I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Step 1:

To get started you will want to speak to Magister Tassi who is located in central Lion's Arch in the Grand Piazza. Also known as the huge area where the what seems to be a bugged event takes place. It could get quite laggy in this area so be warned!

The First Clue: Serene The Ghost(Gate Hub Plaza)

Serene is standing right next to Magister Tassi who gives you the Candy-Powered Matter Meter which is used for every part of this quest. Use the Etheric Field next to Magister Tassi to expose Serene (but chances are someone already exposed her so just look around, someone might be standing on her). Talk to her once she is visible to collect the first clue.

Mad Memories I: Boyhood

The Second Clue: Samson, Thorn's boyhood friend

To reach this ghost you need to jump into the water off the southern dock near Trader's Forum (where I am on the map). From here swim through the sewage tunnel (Where the arrow is pointing on my map). When you reach the junction in the tunnel swim down below. Follow the tunnel until you reach the end almost directly under where the Trading Post is above. Use your Candy Matter Meter Aqueous Scan to uncover Samson. Speak to him to collect the next piece.

A picture of where Samson is on the map can be found on my website.

Mad Memories II: Friendship

The Third Clue: Tynna (Diverse Ledges Waypoint)

For this part you need to swim out into the water of Lion's Arch just southwest of Sanctum Hallows on the map. Once you reach Tynna's location use the Etheric Scan on the Candy-Powered Matter Meter to expose Tynna. Speak to her for the third clue.

Mad Memories III: Young Love

The Fourth Clue: (Queensdale) Shaemoor Waypoint

For this ghost you're going to be leaving Lion's Arch and traveling to Queensdale, just south of Divinity's Reach. The waypoint you'll want to pick is at the Village of Shaemor, Shaemoor Waypoint. From Shaemoor Waypoint you will want to run far east through the graveyard until you reach the northern most tomb at the far eastern end of the Graveyard. As seen in the picture on my website. Use the Gaseous Scan on the Candy-Powered Matter Meter to expose Prince Ewan Thorn and then speak to him for the clue.

Mad Memories IV: Deadly Adventures

The Fifth Clue: Kessex Hills - Delanian Waypoint

This clue is in the eastern end of Kessex Hills just north of Delanian Waypoint. It's just a short run north of the waypoint, just above the second "o" in Blackroot Cut. A picture of the location can be found below. To uncover the ghost here you will want to use the Candy-Powered Matter Meter: Corporeal Scan to uncover Lady Lyrica. Speak to her to receive the fifth clue.

Mad Memories V: Betrothed

The Sixth Clue: Gendarran Fields (Provern Shore Waypoint)

For this clue you need to port to Gendarran Fields, the Provern Shore Waypoint and head west from here. You'll find an entrance to the Provernic Crypt just south of the "Pr" in the word Provernic, I have a picture of it on my map below. Once inside the Crypt follow it all the way back until you reach the Heavy Door. Be careful of all the traps and dangerous things throughout this crypt. If you're not careful you can quickly die from the things in this cave.

This door is locked but in order to open it you need to put Boulders on the Pressure Plates to spawn a Champion Spider, kill her and then the door will open. Lord Humphrey Fallen is who you need to speak to for the clue, hug the right wall when you enter and he spawns around the corner. He can also spawn in other locations in the room so just watch where the train of people are going to find him. Also there is a Grand Chest inside this room that has loot similar to what the World Dragons have. Be sure to grab this!

To leave click on the Mysterious Rock which will port you back to the entrance of Provernic Crypt.

The Pressure Plate Puzzle:

Alright so there are a few different Boulders around this cave. Grab anyone that you come across because you will need it for the Pressure Plate if the door is not already open. The Pressure Plates are little plates on the ground as seen in the picture below. They can be found in a "Hidden", I use that word loosely, part of the cave off the southwestern end of the large room leading to the door which leads to Lord Humphrey. It may sound confusing at first but once you find the area leading to the Pressure Plates room it will be a cake walk from there.

After you collect all six of the clues return to Magister Tassi and turn them all into her. She will then mail you the completed book which can be finished via the next parts of the Halloween Event which are going to be added in as time goes on (a few days between each as far as I know).

maybe you should put a spoiler button/warning on what to do after you get the first clue. I found it was pretty fun trying to figure out the clues and where to go....

when you are using the meter, the icon on the number 5 slot will change when you are in an area that needs scanning. But other then that, great guide on how to get started.

That would be unnecessary, since the starter NPC actually tells you exactly how to get the first clue xD. If someone wanted to figure it out for themselves then there would be absolutely not point to go to a guide.

I put a warning in at the top but either way when you're clicking on posts like this I think people expect spoilers to be in them. =P

Thank you thank you thank you. I'm not sure if it was reading comprehension fail, or just me being derpy, but I could not for the life of me find the first ghost. (might have been all the "noise" in that area of LA too. This guide has explained it to me.

I'm glad I could be of assistance to you! ;D

Also I am working on more Halloween guides including a little bit about Haunted Doors and great locations to farm up some candy corns!

Sorry but how does one not know that there would be some spoilers in a "how to" guide?

Until Friday I don't think there is much more we can do. There are Haunted Doors and Candy Corn to farm but aside from that not much to do! =(

I hope they give us a reason to use the Candy corns and even other stuff acquired through cooking other than what we've already seen

So far for farming Candy corn I have found Dredgehaunt Cliffs, Blazeridge Steppes, Cursed Shore and Frostgorge to be pretty good. Dredgehaunt and Blazeridge both also have gold and seasoned wood logs so that really adds up with bonus money quick. and Cursed Shore and Frostgorge are two of the endgame zones so, well you probably know about them if you're max ;D

Added a Candy Corn Farming Guide - http://www.almarsgui...ween/candycorn/

It may not be worth much right now but who knows what other goodies are to come for Halloween! Couldn't hurt to stock up and get more!

I created both a written and video guide for Haunted Doors since I have been getting a lot of questions involving them such as are they used for achievements? is there any point to hunting for them? What do they give? and things of that nature. If you're interested in learning about these haunted doors take a look at my guides!

Video guide explaining them:

Part 2 is up and on my website now. I will create a post on the forums here in a little bit once I better organize the layout and add some finishing touches. Or if you'd prefer the link to the official gw2 forums for my part 2 post:
