Halloween Event 2020

October is not just our favorite month because of the Anniversary month and its crisp Autumn weather; it's also because it's time for the Pumpkin moon to rise again, haunted cities, candy and costumes, pumpkin patches in the Frontiers, and the return of the Mournful King instance! 

New prizes await those brave enough to venture into the Frontiers during these spooky times!

Festivities begin today, October 9th and will conclude on Tuesday, November 3rd.
