Halloween!

It's that time of year again!

There is of course a lot of fun inbound this weekend in the shape of Halloween on Rubi-Ka! Every year around this time Rubi-Ka is visited by a number of strange creatures, from the enigmatic and evil Uncle Pumpkinheads, to the tricksters that are Frankenleet and Draculeet.

This year will also see a host of new exclusive collectibles available in game as rewards from the various halloween critters. We have also made sure that everyone will get their chance to grab some Halloween loot by offering special halloween missions so you don't have to go out and compete in the wilds of Rubi-Ka if you don't want to!

Check out our new teaser page here for all the details!

If this will be your first Halloween on Rubi-Ka make sure you don't miss it!

Aww, it would indeed be my first Halloween on RK, but I'll miss it due to a trip to Athens. No, not the old or west variants. *still stays on the lookout for clanners there though*

Time and again they cream your liquidation, your displacement, your torture and brutal execution with the ultimate insult that it's just business, it's politics, it's the way of the world, it's a tough life, and that it's nothing personal.

Well, f**k them. Make it personal.

I thought I heard that they're patching them in tomorrow with the downtime. A lot of the code is already active so all they have to do is activate the code again.

So mobs in those missions will drop all and same items as Pumpkinheads outside?

Or you should do both outside and inside mobs for chance of all items?
