Halloween 2017 Rerun - Quick Walkthrough

Introduction

  • Welcome to the rerun of the first Halloween Event from 2017! The Event is relatively straightforward and retains the original's low difficulty, with a series of seven Main Quests that awards you a copy of Elisabeth Bathory (Halloween) upon completion of the final chapter. The remaining copies as well as her ascension items can be found in the Event Shop.
  • This Event is a great chance to stock up on Golden Fruit Golden Fruit! Be sure to complete all Party Quests to obtain the Golden Fruit completion rewards.
  • In the Event Shop, you can exchange each of the higher rarity Event Currencies for Petit Cakes. If a node drops both Petit Cakes and Pumpkin Lanterns, try to prioritize Pumpkin Lantern drop bonuses (either in your own lineup or when looking for a Support)! Just getting one extra Pumpkin Lantern is worth 50 Petit Cakes!
    • x1 : x50
    • x1 : x5
    • x1 : x2
  • Since Party Quests exclusively drop Mischievous Bats, it may be best to wait to do Party Quests until you've purchased a few copies of Maid in Halloween to maximize your drops. The Party Quests will stay until the end of the event, so they can be completed at any time.

The Pumpkin Lantern Farming Quest Opens at this point. The Pumpkin Lantern drop rate isn't much greater than the 40AP quest considering this quest costs 50AP, and this quest also doesn't drop Sweet Candles and instead drops more Petit Cakes (which can be exchanged for and isn't a farming priority). It may be best to farm the 40AP quest for Pumpkin Lanterns instead if Sweet Candles are still needed.

Will I need to use apples for this Event?

  • This event actually will provide the player with a large number of Golden Fruit (total 31 [10/12 Update: It looks like we are getting 16 max Golden Fruit during the rerun instead] if all quests are completed). For the most part, natural AP should be more than enough to nearly clear out the event shop. We can look at the total amount of AP that would be necessary to complete all one-time clear quests that are expected to appear throughout the event, and the average predicted number of drops (assuming no drop bonus CEs):

  • * Note drops are estimated using rates from the Kazemai datamine. The drops are an estimate, assuming no drop bonuses. In practice, your numbers may be slightly higher or lower.
  • Note: This table also does not include the flat reward of Pumpkin Lantern x2 from each Surprise Quest, which would total 132 [10/12 Update: 70 instead of 132 in rerun] Pumpkin Lanterns in addition to what is listed in the table. You should have approx. ~200 Pumpkin Lanterns by the time all quests are done, which is more than enough to clear out the Pumpkin Lantern shop items (170). The 30 leftover will equal ~1500 Petit Cakes, meaning you will have most of the shop cleared even before Free Quests are counted.
  • Farming a combination of Pumpkin Lanterns and Mischievous Bats is generally the best way to meet your Petit Cake quota due to the generous exchange rates (1 Pumpkin = 50 Petit Cakes; 1 Bat = 5 Petit Cakes). Sweet Candles, however, will likely be the limiting factor since the one-time clear quests are not as generous in handing those out.

What are the best Farming Locations?

Event Item Best Farm Location Avg Drops per 1AP

First Stage (10 AP) : 1.38
: 0.40

Sweet Candle
Second Stage (20 AP) : 0.82
: 0.51
: 0.09

Mischievous Bat
Third Stage (30 AP) : 0.38
: 0.43

Pumpkin Lantern
Encore Live (50 AP) : 0.09
: 0.42

  • * Note that drop rates do not include drop bonuses.
  • Update 10/5/18: Based on the Community Drop Log, it appears that drop rates are doubled for the rerun! The numbers are updated accordingly.
  • Either Final Curtain or Second Stage are generally the best areas to farm. Encore Live technically has the highest Pumpkin Lantern drop rate, but throughout completing Quests in the Event, Sweet Candles are likely the item you will have to farm the most for, which Encore Live does not drop.
  • Check out the Event Drop Calculator for more detailed drop rate information!
