Nights of the Dead 2023

The days are getting shorter
and it makes you very sleepy
But dark things are a'stirring
and the nights are getting creepy

Welcome to Nights of the Dead (NoTD) 2023, which will run from the start of October 13, 2023 through the end of November 7, 2023. (Somehow it seems really fitting that this Halloween event starts on Friday the 13th! ~Mum) The event will be available on all servers, although the special rules servers will not have access to the "Headless or Tails" Public Quest due to expansion availability. Note the end date for the event was changed from November 2 until November 7, 2023.

In addition to all the returning quests and content, the following new features will be available this year:

  • New recipe book

    New From Gravedigging

    When out and about gravedigging, watch for a "Mystic's Crystal Orb" to drop directly into your inventory that will need to be examined to start the quest "From Regions Beyond" Additional items needed for the quest will drop and automatically update the quest while you are gravedigging. Reward is the phenomenal animated Mysterial Spirit Board. Additionally, a new item can be found from the gifts obtained during gravedigging - the Golden Wrapped Mummy.
