Many Guild Wars players on the East Coast of the United States experienced a major storm over the Halloween weekend and in several cases, lost power to their homes. These outages prevented many from participating in the Halloween Event Finale, meaning they were not able to obtain this year’s Halloween hats from Mad King Thorn.

To address this situation, we intend to spawn a Halloween Festival Hat Giver in game, most likely next week. The Hat Giver will be in Lion’s Arch and Kamadan offering the hat that was offered in that particular town. The Hat Givers will remain in town for one week, just as they do following other holiday events. These kindly souls will offer this years Halloween hat — either the Tricorne or the Reaper’s Hood — in exchange for Halloween items.

While the details are not yet final, we wanted to give you a heads up about this. So save your Halloween items and we will share details as they become available.

And, if you’ll excuse the pun, “Hat’s off” to the Live Team for making this happen!

Here’s a little more information about the Hat Giver:

  • The Festival Hat Giver in Lion’s Arch will accept Candy Corns.
  • The Festival Hat Givern in Kamadan will accept Pumpkin Cookies.

The the magic number is 50 Candy Corns or Cookies to obtain the hat in that town.
