Good question. To participate, you must be wearing some type of Halloween item. This includes any of the special costumes from Spooky Bob, or Pumpkin Heads from boss drops, or the Black Cat pet. One item only is all that is required. That covers the Halloween part...
Now for the Havoc! All Hats, Robes, Shoes may not give ANY stats boost. All of the Halloween clothing is free of stats increases, so to keep if fair, NO STATS BOOSTS from these items. That means if you only have the Pumpkin Head to wear, you will have to wear your school robes and shoes that were issued to you when you enrolled. Yes that means no arena or crown gear.
The Halloween wands do not offer any bonus pips...so any wand used, may not have a bonus pip/power pip with it.
The Black Cat pet comes with one card. So any pet that comes with a single card is acceptable...IF it doesn't offer any other stats increases.
I have had several quests over the course of building my wizards that have had their turn atop my list of most despised quests.
Initially, it was the double trips through the Vault of Ice...
Then, it was the back and forth between the family tombs in the Temple of Storms...
Then I go to Marley Bone, and that snooty Doolittle took to prize....and she has held if for a very long time.
I think she has finally be dethroned however...by Mr. Freddy Ninelives. I've had to go through him before, but for some reason, this time it was different. Oh, I know why it was different...because I logged on planning to do a quick quest and log back off. My heart sank when I realized what the next item on my wizards agenda was. Already in a not so happy mood with the quest, I decided I would go ahead and get the agony over with...after all, I already had my level thirty-three spell, as I had been avoiding this one!
Somewhere around the third battle, I was banging my head on my desk from the monotony. After all, where is the thrill of battle when you only put the 4 cards in your deck you know you need to win (and that is overkill).
By the sixth battle I was almost in tears from the pain...both physical (my head was really hurting by then), and the emotional stress of knowing that I had to do it three more times after that.
So for the last three, I took out all the cards from my deck, with the exception of reshuffle, and a Satyr so I could heal myself before the next torture session started, and beat him to a pulp with nothing but wand cards. While it changed up the battle, and actually amused me, it also made the entire process MUCH longer.
Anyway, Mr. Ninelives...Welcome to the throne. I hope it is a long time before I have to deal with you again. Does anyone know if a Balance wizard has to deal with this guy?
Most of the younger crowd may not find any interest in this, but some of my fellow elderly wizards might.
The wife stumbled across this site today called Break It Apart. It is geared toward allowing quick digestion of the bills running through government. Their slogan is, "What Legislators won't do, We must do."
If you have any interest in politics, you should give this a look.
I promise, I'll go back to Wizard101 related content on my next post.
