Halloween Voyage Log Tasks (2017 Event)
This event is held in Seville where everyone kills a large jack-o-lantern pumpkin and then small pumpkin chests are spawned. "Character fragments" and other items/coin are items in the pumpkin chests.
The big pumpkin spawns the pumpkin chests when it's hp is at 75%, 50%, 25% and 0.
but his HP is 500 million (500,000,000) so it takes quite a few strong people to make this happen.
Only 1 large pumpkin is spawned during the event. (at least so far)
The event has only been run for 1 hour on 3 different days:
Tuesday Oct 31st , and 2 different consecutive Saturdays. (11/4 & 11/11/2017)
(Following is from the official announcement)
During the event, there will a huge pumpkin head in the Seville Suburb, picking up the Pumpkins chest by attacking it, open the Pumpkins chest and you may receive the Halloween Character set. Open the Halloween Character set, you may receive one character of 'Wan’ ‘Sheng’ ‘Jie’ ‘Kuai’ ‘Le’ (means Happy Halloween). You can exchange the Pumpkin Mike Whistle by gathering all five characters "Wan""Sheng""Jie""Kuai""Le".
Other items can also come from the chests. But as i did not personally attend the events I do not have a list.
Character fragments can also be picked up as drops during the week in: English Channel, North Sea Battlefield, Battle Forest, Golden Tower, and Portobello Bay.
The character fragments from the Event are NOT bound and can be traded
The Character fragments from English Channel, North Sea Battlefield , Battle Forest, Golden Tower, and Portobello Bay ARE Bound.
