Mythic announced their Halloween even today which will run from October 29 until November 2.Â This time of year is when many mmorpgs have events in-game to celebrate the various holidays and, as usual, the event offers some form of aesthetic goodies for the player.Â The Witching Night as they call it will offer players the chance to get various masks, capes, and other goodies usable at all levels by all races.
There’s one interesting bit of information here that really catches my interest.Â To obtain these items you must participate in the public quests placed in the RvR lakes.Â It’s not the most covert method of drawing players out of the shadows (or scenarios) and bringing them into the RvR lakes but at this point I’ll take it and I’m sure many of you out there will agree.Â I think this Halloween event is going to be the perfect opportunity to test the waters for future changes in the game.Â Mythic obviously needs a means of drawing players into the RvR lakes to promote O-RvR and the players obviously want incentives. Â If this is any indication, and I really believe it is, then we can expect that Mythic is listening and ready to take action.Â I expect that, if all goes well with this little Halloween event, Mythic will add permanent PQ fictures to the RvR lakes with rewards enticing enough to matter. Combine this with the already-on-the-way RvR Influence system and there’s lots of potential
I’m looking forward to the RvR action starting tomorrow!Â My goal is to take all my characters to the RvR lakes and get them their goodies.Â Hopefully it won’t be too difficult a process. Tomorrow is also the 1.0.4 patch which, according to the tidbits of info out there, holds some fixes for RvR. *crosses fingers*
