... but if something goes bump in the night, Mum is breaking out the RPoD!!
This event was released on October 22, 2008 and will continue through November 3, 2008.
It isonce again time for Norrath to celebrate the Nights of the Dead. Trick or Treating, haunted houses, and crafted goodies.
You read that right! This year, the crafters of Norrath get to make many items in celebration of the Nights of the Dead. This isn't some little pumpkin carving bit, folks, but much more solid items to wear and to decorate with.
How It Works
Much like the Erollisi Day crafting, you will need a specially-purchased recipe book. The book is sold at crafting faction society headquarters, such as the Ironforge Exchange, for a modest fee, and requires Artisan level 2 to scribe. The recipes themselves are level 29, and will use cross-skill reaction arts. This allows pretty much anyone a chance to make the items, though low-level crafters will understandably have more of a struggle to finish the items to pristine due to the level. Yield on all items is 1-2 (2 each on pristine).
Again, like Erollisi Day crafting, the items can be made year-round. However, the drops needed for the primary ingredient will be a limited-time drop while the event is going on. The drops are body drops (so can drop off grey mobs), and they all work interchangeably for the Nights of the Dead recipes. Here is what we know so far regarding the drops: (List updated Oct. 31 with new drop info)
*Centipede-types, etc in the sewers were mentioned
|Cubes (Vermin's Snye, etc.)||Candy Corn|
|Flesh Feeders||Candy Corn|
|Golems||Nutty Chocolate Bar|
|Gorgers (LP, etc.)||Cherry Gumdrops|
|Harpies||Fruit Flavored Hard Candy|
|Lamia||Green Chocolate Buttons|
|Shadowed Men||Licorice Candy|
|Spectres (SS, Silent City)||Fudge
|Spinechillers (Void storms, etc.)||popcorn balls|
Notice the pattern? Creepy, crawly, spooky sorts of mobs!
In addition to these mob-dropped treats, you will need common tier 2 resources (tubers, maple, iron, etc.)
Firstly, there is one cloth clothing set, the Sinister set, that is purely decorative (no stats). This set includes both a robe and a vest, for more versatile looks.
Then there's all the lovely furniture. All of these pieces will be difficulty level 28, and use tier 2 resources. The exact resources needed, as well as the fuel and equipment used, will vary based on the item. (Forge, loom, woodworking table, chemistry table, work bench and stove & keg are all used for different items.)
||Shackled Human Skeleton
||Sinister Spider Eggs
||Orb of Death
||Shackled Elf Skeleton

This section will be for any updates since this article was published.
To start it off, I'd like to note that while the haunted house instance from the past few years will be making a return, there is a second, very different, heroic haunted house event this year as well.
