Greetings foolish mortals! We’re hauntingly tickled to announce our Haunted Harvest to be celebrated throughout Entrath. This ghoulishly delightful event takes place starting on Monday, October 26 at 10AM Pacific /6PM CET (Worldclock) and ends on Monday, November 9 at 10AM Pacific/7PM CET (Worldclock). Please be aware, my lovelies, that there is a timezone change for CEST to CET on October 25 and the US will change from Daylight Savings to Standard time on November 1st.

Here we present two delectable cards, one PvP AA card and one new PvE card, and a Haunted Harvest sleeve! All are exclusive to Haunted Harvest 2015.

Edit:

Quick update, we apologize for the confusion, but the Bow of Soul's Chill equipment for Harvester's Reaper will not function until the next patch.

I first read the Bow of Soul's Chill as Bowl of Soul Chili and then I realized it was lunch time

Also, those cards look great and I LOVE the Ethereal Caller AA/sleeves, can't wait to get these! :D

Love the Halloween theme :) Questions:
1. 1 copy of the PvE card is guaranteed to drop from every boss? DC perk does not apply?
2. Does DC perk increase the chances of getting those equips from the 2nd and 4th tier bosses?
3. Does the Rare equipment have a lower chance to drop than the Uncommon equipment?

Love those sleeves!!! By the way, you seem to have forgotten about the AA Phantom in the update ;)

The cards looks great! So long as the Bow isn't another Stormcoat it should be a fun event!

Ghosts are always difficult in the way they flicker in and out, but we've now shackled him to this world so all can see him.

Cool, and thanks for making the drop chance not be a nightmare (as far as we can tell).

Let the AA Phantoms be a surprise :)

Also, I just want to say how epic those sleeves are. (I like that they stray from saying HEX - We all know what game we are playing :))

Both the AAs and the sleeve look fantastic. Nice that these holiday cards/equipment are easy to get.

Awesome stuff. Can't wait to get a playset of each.

I especially love that you've made the PvE card so easy to get, very generous.

Look at the Regular and AA Caller art side by side. It's very cool how all of the visual elements from the original have been maintained, but in the holiday theme.

Great AA and sleeves but also great to see pve cards from this type of events.

I thought the orange rarity on PvE cards meant that the card was AI-only. How can we differentiate between an AI-only card and a player obtainable AA PvE card?

Good spot.
I noticed in the card manager this was rare, ie blue, pve colour, so maybe it got changed?

Ahhh, those pesky spirits...

Nice touch, I wouldn't have noticed by myself. Maybe, just maybe, when the veil thins during the haunted harvest, ethereal callers become somewhat witch-like from tampering too much with the afterworld...or it's just how Entrath is perceived from across the veil that separates the living from the dead.

Edit: fixed a quote's author...you may have heard of him.

Well Harvester's Reaper not an AA as he never existed till this week.

Will happily get a aa playset of caller. Could be a serious reanimator card some day.

So is Harvester's Reaper a promo card and we need gold dust or a rare? Make up your minds :s

I think I know what my new favorite sleeve is going to be. While I don't intend to get a playset of Ethereal Caller, I'll definitely be after those Reapers and their equipment.

Good catch. That was wrong. I guess there were some tricks in our treats.

You'll now see the card rarity is blue, and in case anyone is wondering we'll also eventually change our promo card color so it's not overlapping with AI-only card colors.

Great art, great consistency of art, and spectacular sleeves - really like festival logo putting in appearance (a first in Hex?). :cool:

Nice to see no 'chase' items, though perhaps a bit too easy - if there's such a thing with lovely free gifts!
I intend to get a complete set of the PvE rewards on the first night, but I'm sure Hex data hoarders no what % of the overall playerbase completes T2 twice a fortnight currently - couldn't ask for a better start to a working week, regardless. :D

If the equipment is given at random after Tier 2 boss and after Tier 4 boss, why do they have different rarity? Unless you meant random based on a drop rate like 4 uncommon to 1 rare, etc?

I think we would definitely prefer to have a specific color designation for AA cards. Perhaps, they could retain their original card rarity color, but on AA the symbol could GLOW. We're digital after all, why stick to convention.

I like this. It is actually a little annoying having the AA color overwrite the original rarity color. Perhaps make the container for the rarity color be a hexagon instead of a circle?

Could be just me, but wouldn't it make more sense to change the AI-only color? Players are familiar with the orange color for promos, and changing it will require changes to all the promo cards already released, whereas none of us has seen an AI-only card in the wild, and their art assests are (presumably) still being assembled so there would be less. revision of exisiting items.

(Plus, wouldn't this be the third thing the orange color has meant in the game's lifetime? Poor thing just can't settle down.)

There is a detail on AA cards there is a bronze border around the rarity color and faction

Yes, I must keep my Orange AA shinies! (Don't take my orange away!) But Spiredore is mistaken - all the unique PvE cards that the AI plays (Word of Xentoth, for example) already use the same colour, which makes things a little confusing for some. Just change the PvE card colour and we are golden.

Does dungeon crawler work with these drops or are you seriously going to make me complete an entire arena run for a playset

10 fights isn't much (15 if you are paranoid about Uruunaz.) Plus you may have to go again anyway for the equips, you never know how rare they are.

I'll have to double-check on Monday. But I believe so. Though, don't quote me on that just yet.
