October Login Campaign

While these items are rewards from the Harvest Festival they are part of this month's Repeat Login Campaign harvest theme.

You may pick them up at your will for 300 login points each:

  • Picking up two and synergizing them will create a Kakai Cap +1 icon.png Kakai Cap +1Kakai Cap +1 description.png which will turn you into a random ghoul costume.

Trick or Treat!

NPCs are dressed in costumes. Trade them sweets to obtain items.

♦Costumed NPCs:

Bastok-Flag.jpg Bastok Mines / Bastok Markets
Windurst-Flag.jpg Windurst Waters / Windurst Woods

  • NPCs will accept most sweets, with certain exceptions that do not appeal to their finicky palates.

Recommended "Sweets"

  • If Windurst is in 2nd then Cinna-cookies work and are cheaper, but just use crackers.
  • Trade via the macro /item "Item Name" <t>
  • /item "Garlic Cracker" <t>

Trick or Treat Rewards

Trade roaming costumed NPCs sweets over and over again to obtain the following NQ items.
To obtain the HQ variant you must equip that item, and not any of the other Trick or Treat items and trade the NPCs more.

Your Purple-winged Partners

See one of the moogles below to begin and sync to level one. You must begin charging your enlight lazer via defeating bats as your ordinary melee attacks do nothing to Pyracmon.

Each bat you defeat will give you an enlight effect of 1 damage. There is no notification that your lazer charged or your current strength. The effect caps at 30 damage.

Return to the moogle after defeating bats to gain the enlight effect.

  • NQ items do not need to be worn in order to obtain the HQ.
    • After obtaining the HQ, the bats do not return and try to leech your Enlight.

Pyracmon Cap description.png Obtained after obtaining the NQ.
Defeat 30 bats.

Pyracmon Rewards

If you do not relinquish your light, face off against the spooky Ahriman Pyracmon. If he is defeated, you can earn the prizes below.

  • Pyracmon will try to dispel this en-light via it's only TP move Monocular Scowl. This is a gaze move and may be evaded simply by facing away while it is used.
  • If you are hit by this you will need to zone and start over.
    • He will not regenerate health if you zone.
  • You may use the regen bonus from the grounds of valor book after syncing to make this easier.

After defeating the Ahriman, return to the moogle to receive your reward.

Bomb Decorations

Throughout the festivities, players will be able to enjoy the illumination of the now-famous bomb decorations. As in previous Harvest Festivals this will reward Pitchforks, and now a mount.

Pitchfork icon.png Pitchfork

To obtain the PitchforkPitchfork description.png you must make a two-person party and meet under specific Bomb Decorations with two specific costumes. Which costumes are based on area. Below is a list of the correct combinations and which NPCs can give them to you. The NPCs will not accept every type of sweet to turn you into a costume. If you get "Thank you..." with nothing else, try another sweet or wait a game-day to reset and try again. Once you get a costume, you must wait a game-day if trying to get the same costume from the same NPC with the same sweet. Alternatively, try another sweet if it's on the same day.

Pitchfork +1 icon.png Pitchfork +1

Obtaining the Pitchfork +1Pitchfork +1 description.png is somewhat similar. You must again make a 2-person party, but this time you both must have the Pitchfork and both be in a nation different where both of you first obtained it.

This time around you will need to get the costume of the Beastmen that lives near your home nation(Bastok = Quadav, San d'Oria = Orc, and Windurst = Yagudo). If done correctly, instead of getting that Beastmen's form, you will instead get a Goblin costume. Meet under bomb decorations and you will receive your reward.

  • Bastok Markets: Orc(Trick Spirit), Quadav(Trick Phantom), and Yagudo(Trick Skeleton).
  • Northern San d'Oria: Orc(Trick Shadow), Quadav(Trick Bones), and Yagudo(Trick Ghast).
  • Windurst Waters: Orc(Trick Bones), Quadav(Trick Shade), and Yagudo(Trick Ghost).

NPC and Costume List

Since all NPC's always give the same type of costume, it can be convenient to know which to use for obtaining the Pitchfork items.
There are both special event roaming NPC's, and pre-existing NPC's that have been dressed up just for the event. Stationary NPC's can often be indoors and more difficult to use seeing as how costumes do not allow interaction with doors.

Spectral Mount

Cyhiraeth, Corpselight

Form a party of two people and only two party members. Find the NPC dressed as a Cyhiraeth (the floating skull) and then both party members trade a sweet till turned into the same costume. You can get other rewards before becoming wearing the Cyhiraeth costume (which lasts 4 minutes). Once both members are a Cyhiraeth head to the bomb decoration and both stand under the bomb balloon decorations to receive the mount.

Note: If you fail for any reason, you have to wait till the next game day to start over again.

Note: Trading a different type of sweet will allow you to have another chance at getting the costume. I traded a ginger cookie and got an item, then traded an acorn cookie and got the costume.

For example:

  • The NPC at the Auction House in Southern San d'Oria is in this costume and will grant it for a sweet. Proceed to the bomb balloons in the costume near the Mog House at (L-7) to gain the mount:

Witch Hat icon.png Wake of the Lilies

There are two ghosts of the Dark Lilies in each city, in the areas listed below.
To begin this portion of the event simply talk to one of the above NPC. He will assign you one of them to follow. This will be the less difficult of the two. If you are successful, you will be given the Witch HatWitch Hat description.png.
If you talk to the exorcist again with the Witch HatWitch Hat description.png equipped, he will assign to the second and harder Dark Lily to follow. This time, if you are successful, you will be rewarded a Coven HatCoven Hat description.png.

Being spotted by the NPC remove your costume, and you must start over. When you have completed the task, you will be notified via the message: "Alright! It's time to collect your reward!"

Further successful attempts will be rewared with a random number of Papillions.

After the next conquest tally your moogle will reward you with the Pricket. If it does not then you must remove any conflicting items such as the Galley Kitchen first, and then wait for the next tally.
