2017 fall festival event - shopping spree!

so sorry it has taken this long, guys, but i was occupied with preparing for and undergoing surgery.  hopefully, all is well and i can get back to bizniz!

we have our candy and we are back to the event vendors to go shopping.  as noted in previous posts, the vendors are:
  1. jacques allantyrn the mask seller
  2. alice the event treat seller
  3. alistair the costume seller
i already had the pieces i wanted from alistair, even with all the choices he offers, so he got no trade with me.
 
alice has treats, which are confectioner recipes.  as recipes, there is a beginner formula, an intermediate formula, and an expert formula.  the beginner formula enables a confectioner to make candied apples and pumpkin pie.  the expert formula allows you to make all the recipes from the lower tiers, as well as: gummi maggots, granny nuffle's punch, and granny nuffle's festival cookies.  when buying the recipes, you may get a level warning, indicating that you do not have the required skill level to make at least one tier of the recipes you are buying.  just continue on with the trade, and you will find the recipes in your inventory.
 
do you remember the 'trick or treat' quest jacques give?  i did it before i bought anything from him, so i stopped by the vault to get my gnomekindle costume.  i thought it might help, but it didn't.  lol
 
so anyway, i decided to get some masks, so i returned to jacques and opened a trade to see his inventory.  first thing i noticed was the harvest shirt, so i pulled that icon from jacques' inventory to my 'items receiving' area after choosing the quantity (usually 1) i wanted to buy.  continue moving items until you have the ones you want to buy.  remember, the vendors only take candy, so switch to your inventory window and start moving candy to the 'items giving' area.  chances are that you will overpay at least a cp, and jacques will remind you that the vendors do not make change.  when you are ready, complete the trade and find your purchases in your inventory.
 
once you have your loot, you will want to try them on.  the following fashion show is to show you a little detail of different masks.
and here we are at the end of the our exploration of the fall festival.  i hope you enjoyed it!  we will be heading to the dragon city of chiconis next, which will require an attunement tour.  see you soon to show you how to get there.

2017 fall festival event - hunting, part 2

when last we met about the fall festival, we had reached the entrance to the main hunting grounds.  we had already met the spiders, so now to meet the rest of the gang!

starting at the north end (yellow area on the map) - this is the 'shrine' area, called for the edifice that resembles a city shrine.  not so many spiders around - but the area is inhabited heavily by 2 other big threats - really scary zombies and spine chilling skeletons.  both are tough - zombies are easier than skellies (they pack quite a punch) - but they both like to gang up and join the fun.

and they both roam the main hunting area, in addition to shrine area and the graveyard area, east of the shrine area (apple green area on the map).  standing at the gate, you can see the nasties roaming around the tomb and monuments.  approach and enter the tomb, where you will see sir onedra.

the poor knight has been traumatized by his experiences in the haunted hunting grounds, and he will tell you his sad tale if you greet him.  accept his quest to hear the sad, and very long, story (part one, part two, part three).

across the hunting grounds from the graveyard area is the canyon of the maggots (west end of the main hunting grounds in blue on the map).  fight your way thru the spiders and zombies and skellies until you get to the canyon, where the huge maggots await your attention.  they are just a bit tougher than the spiders, but they travel in packs and love to gang up.  you will surround yourself with dead white slime before you head out of the canyon for our last big hunt.

at the east central end of the main hunting grounds, just south of the graveyard, there is a platform overlooking a long canyon that runs north to south, literally crawling with spiders (blue green area of map).  go over the platform and into the canyon.  to the north of the platform, and after a longish run thru swarms of spiders, you will come upon a shrine.  you can explore it, but there is nothing really of interest here.

the story is quite different at the southern end of the canyon.  that is where the big spider nest is, and the home of belohs the big spider mama.  of course, the nest is guarded by a massive swarm of spiders with belohs leading them.  even at my level, this fight requires teamwork.

once you have defeated the spiders, you have successfully hunted the haunted hunting grounds.  time to head back to the vendors for the shopping spree.  head back to the area below the platform, run up the hill and back over the platform, and make for the canyon pass to go thru the tunnel next to the storyteller's tomb.  turn left at the end of the tunnel to be back in the vendor area.

now, before we start the shopping, we should see what we have to trade.  the vendors only take candy, so hopefully we have plenty of: hard candy (worth 1 cp), dead mice (1 cp), peppermint taffy (2 cp), gummi gruoks (the really good stuff, 6 cp), choco beet legs (2 cp), marzipan skulls (2 cp), and maggot chews (1 cp).  when next we meet, i will show you what i spent all my candy on!

 

hope to see you soon for the goodies.  here is the link for the hunting album.
