Trick or Treat!
Posted by: Mirriam - Sun Oct 23rd, 2005 01:48 am EDT
Those expecting "the same old" Halloween festival may have been pleasantly (or otherwise) surprised by a few added complications to this year's event. There are 2 new Halloween items, a Pitchfork and a Pitchfork +1. These items, unlike the traditional Halloween items that are also available (including the Trick Staff, Trick Staff II, Pumpkin Head, Pumpkin Head II, Treat Staff, Treat Staff II, Horror Head, Horror Head II), require a party to obtain. You and one other member, preferably from the same nation for the sake of convenience, will need to party up to obtain the Pitchfork, which must be obtained before you can obtain the Pitchfork +1.

Trick or Treat! To obtain the Pitchfork, grab a friend and head to Bastok, San d'Oria or Windurst. The recommended zones are Bastok Markets, North San d'Oria or Windurst Waters. This is because these zones each contain the specific Halloween NPCs that roam around. (Note that Bastok Mines, South San d'Oria and Windurst Woods all have decorations and regular NPCs in costume, but it can be more difficult to get a good match in these zones.) Speak first to the Moogle in the zone, and then head out to get your costume.

You can obtain a costume by trading a sweet to the NPC. A sweet is any type of sweet baked good. Note that unlike other Halloween events, items that are not crafted do not work. (This means that you can't use Faerie Apples, Saruta Oranges, Yagudo Cherries, etc.) If the sweet does not have a recipe, don't use it. (You can still buy them from an NPC, though, like Ginger Cookies.) For best results, switch NPCs frequently (especially if you also want the eight "standard" rewards listed above), and use a large variety of different sweet items when trading.

You and your partner will need to try different combinations of costumes in order to obtain the Pitchfork. A combination of hound and ghost worked for me in Bastok Mines. After you think you have a good combination (this may take some experimenting or checking with other players), try running together under the decorations. You may have to try all the decorations in order to get the right one. NOTE: you do not have to "check" the decorations. All you have to do is run under them.

To obtain the Pitchfork +1, you will need to head to a different city than the one where you received your Pitchfork. You may do this with the same partner, or a different partner. This is where being from the same nation as your partner comes in handy. You will need to find the NPC that normally turns characters into the enemy of their home nation. Equip your Pitchfork, and trade a sweet to this NPC. Instead of turning you into the enemy of your home nation, the NPC will instead turn you into a goblin. Once you and your partner have both turned into goblins, you must run around to the decorations, just like before, to try and obtain your Pitchfork +1. A Bastokan will need to find the NPC that normally turns players into a Quadav, a Windurstian will need to find the NPC that turns players into a Yagudo, and a San d'Orian will need to find the NPC that turns players into an Orc.

If you wish to obtain the other holiday events, you will have a much easier (though more costly) time, and you do not need a partner. Simply trade a sweet to one of the NPCs. The NPC will turn you into a monster, or give you a Halloween item. This may take a lot of different sweets, a lot of time trading different NPCs, and a lot of time waiting for new days and running around.

PlayOnline: Trick or Treat?
Posted by: Cuer - Fri Oct 14th, 2005 03:48 am EDT
From:FINAL FANTASY XI
Trick or Treat! Oct. 14, 2005 00:00 [PDT]

Trick or Treat?

Master, Master!
Vana'diel has been on fire with goldfish scooping, dancing, and wild buffalos! But all that's over now, kupo! No more trouble, and no more heat! But don't you miss all the activity, actually? Aren't you itching for more excitement?

I have some information fresh from the M.H.M.U. (Mog House Management Union) that just might scratch that itch, kupo! Harvest time in Bastok, San d'Oria, and Windurst is now over, and a bone-chilling, fearsome festival is in the works! The towns will use the festival as a means to express their enormous thanks to the adventurers for the safety they bring, and provide a means of revenge for the ever-so-few trifling troubles they cause.

That's right, kupo! It's the third incarnation of the Harvest Festival!

The other details given to me are vague because apparently, the festival planners didn't want any information leaked to the adventurers, kupo! Luckily, the M.H.M.U. had a few secret agents planted at their meetings! Apparently, there will be more than just the typical monster costumes! A certain hazardous-looking decoration(*) devised by the engineers of Bastok is scheduled to make an appearance. Oooh, scaaary... I'm shaking in my fur, kupo! The planners have also set up patrols during the preparation for the festival, so they must be hiding more spine-tingling secrets!

Do you like playing tricks? Then I have good news for you, kupo!
It seems they are planning to give away special costumes. Adventurers will roam the streets wearing the costumes and approach wary passers-by with calls of "Trick or Treat?"

What will the moogles be doing, you ask?
Eating candy and playing tricks, of course, kupo!

(*)
When questioned, Raibaht shouted, "What do you mean, 'It looks dangerous!?' Cid's inventions tend to have a unique look to them, but this was made from the same technology that allows airships to fly at great heights. It's perfectly safe!" I think I made him angry, kupo...

- - - - -


This event is scheduled to commence at Oct. 20, 2005 17:00 (PDT) and will last until Nov. 1, 2005 0:00 (PST).



-Trade a treat to a disguised NPC walking in Bastok, San d'Oria, or Windurst.

-The NPC will only accept certain treats.

-Players might be disguised as beastmen or monsters for a certain period of time after trading a treat to an NPC. Magic or items cannot be used while disguised. Costumed players also cannot perform actions that require a target, such as talking to NPCs or opening doors.

The effects of the monster costume may be canceled by changing to a new area or:
1. Windows version: Press the [+] key on the numeric keypad twice.
PlayStation 2 version: Press the triangle button twice.
2. Line up the selection box with the status icon entitled "Costume."
3. Windows version: Press the [Enter] key.
PlayStation 2 version: Press the X button.

-Talk to an event moogle during the festival to find out more. Perhaps a surprise awaits...

-Mistakes were found in the following synthesizing recipes, as well as the recipes given by the NPCs from the guild:
