The 30 new special event quests consist of 5 collection sequences of 6 quests each. The first 5 quests of each sequence are to find each of the 5 items belonging to one new collection added by the update. The 6th quest is to combine that collection.

In keeping with the past 2 previous events, the Scary Pranks event also requires Players to complete an additional 6 quests before awarding the Gremlin Treasure chest and Halloween Charm casket. Known as 'Recipe Quests', these quests direct the Player to search the Lair to find ingredients for crafting the final banishment item at one of the Crafting Stations.

Listed below are the 5 collections players must gather to complete the event's quests. note a random artifact fixer is also awarded when a collection is combined for the first time.

Event CreaturesEdit

The Cheery Gang are the 3 new event creatures to banish.

Banishing the event creatures will award the new Fixers required to combine the new Event Collections. Banish 100 and collect the Gremlin Rings to complete the third stage of the timed challenge. Players may continue banishing the event creatures to achieve a high score on the Top 1000 Banishing Leaderboard.

The new Fixers required to combine the new Event Collections are:

Fixer Amount Needed to Complete Quests How to Obtain Item(s) Required to Banish Monster Can be WL/ Sent as Free Gift to Friends?

10 Banish The Lord of Illusions Bitter Lollipops x3 (won by banishing the 'King of Horror Stories' Monster) No

Although obtaining these Fixers sounds complicated, they can all be obtained in exactly the same way. In the end, 58 Licorice Medicine are needed to complete the event quests.

To banish the event creatures, you must first play the new Hidden Object Location Lair until you win some Licorice Medicine. You then use these Licorice Medicine to banish the new 'Master of Jokes' event creature, collecting the Enchanted Chalk and Raven Feather Fixers as you well as the Salty Jelly Candies needed to banish the next event creature 'King of Horror Stories'. Use the Salty Jelly Candies to banish the 'King of Horror Stories', collecting the Pumpkin Seeds Fixers and also the Bitter Lollipops needed to banish the 'Lord of Illusions' in order to get the Sorcerer's Amulet Fixers. Thus, as you play Lair in order to complete the 30 Special Quests and advance towards Virtuoso level, you will naturally collect all that you need to create the fixers required to combine the new event collections. Each banishment also awards the Gremlin Rings needed to complete the third part of the event challenge itself.

Dark Sacrament

The Dark Sacrament contains 1 random Collection Item and 1 random Fixer from the event

These creatures will disappear as soon as the event is over, either by the completion of the Scary Pranks challenge or by time running out for the event.

Once the event ends, these Fixers will no longer be winnable. However, the Fixers may be obtained from the Store by purchasing the Dark Sacrament chest. The chest costs 5 rubies and contains 1 random Collection Item and 1 random Fixer from the Scary Pranks special event.
