Halloween Hullaballoo or the King's Kerfuffle[edit | edit source]

A petulant lord
Belligerently bemoans
And sobbingly roams.
Helpless ornate shriek
And serenely giggling knives
You'll laugh for your lives!
Glumly impatient
Smiling with menacing grace
Maniacal face.

Halloween Event[edit | edit source]

Guild Battle Changes[edit | edit source]

  • The brief damage immunity that players have when resurrecting at the shrine now protects against lifestealing effects.
