I will mirror everyone else here the event was amazing but the vendor was disappointing. Needed a bottom to match the top at least. The Witch's set from last year was complete. The idea of using a special version of an instance to do tasks instead of fates was nice, Buy FFXIV Gil but please no more "stealth mission" crap. I almost cried when I realized there was not broom this year since I started playing this year I couldn't get it last year.
it was fun, until i was paired up with 3 noobs who never sneaked in their life. if you get turned into a pumpkin 15 times, just put your controller on the ground please also they brought back lightning event like 3 times so yeah... This event is the best so far! It reminded me of the very first Summerfest on FFXI where we had to run around places like Den of Rancor as lvl 1s with invisible/sneak on ., you're not helping :/Then that dude started opening every chest he encountered on the "every chest is a trap except 2" mission. and yes, we explained him. Anyway i'm done, not farming that for extra tabletop meals and fireworks.
So happy this event is instanced. Makes it so much more fun and worth trying! The event is really good. Little disappointed by the rewards though compared to previous years. Usually love All Saints Wake (Gridania + Voidsent = <3), Cheap FFXIV Gil but not being able to do this one solo kills it for me. :\ Aether's duty finder community is toxic as hell and I don't have 3 friends online at the same time to do the manor with.
Great event and fun, but the rewards this year are a pale comparison frok years past. remember how last year, and the year before, and the year before, we got full sets and like... bardings or a mount? Now we get music and a shirt. Gee thanks. No need to be ungrateful.
Apparently the Xmas event is going to be bigger so that's why we didn't get a lot for Halloween which I'm okay with.Oh also you forgot that you get a minion too :'D Christmas is crap. Halloween is the best time of year!
