Town Crier Rumors

Free Rumors:

Town Crier tells you, "Another festival season, another offering from Dereth's mask makers... I wonder what the fashion will be this year?"
Town Crier tells you, "Festival season is upon us! The leaves are turning, the weather is cooling, and of course the pumpkins have taken over Glenden Wood."
Town Crier tells you, "News! The proprietors of the casinos have opened up a new gaming den! Go to Sanamar to see the exciting new game!"
Town Crier tells you, "News! The six ley line pyramids that Asheron cleansed are active again! More powerful monsters found, new rewards offered by Asheron! Go visit the six sites to see!"
Town Crier tells you, "News! The young Deru trees of Marae Lassel are under attack by some infestation sent by T'thuun!"
Town Crier tells you, "News! Those vile patriarchs that T'thuun raised up are scouring all Dereth for mysterious objects."

Pyreal Rumors:

Town Crier tells you, "Dereth's mask makers have rolled out their new designs, and they are quite impressive! Be on the alert for snake hides, they can be made into particularly impressive trophies..."
Town Crier tells you, "Happy festival season! Enjoy the treats from the festival merchants, and enjoy the anniversary celebration!"
Town Crier tells you, "It's true, the three young Deru trees of Marae Lassel are in a precarious state, being threatened by the demon T'thuun's corrupting touch. Dire consequences for us all if they were to be engulfed. Seek out Aun Kimintari in Timaru if you can help."
Town Crier tells you, "Not only are Pristine Mana Shards more common in wilderness hunting now, but also the keys you could get from trading them in now open a wider range of chests."
Town Crier tells you, "That's right, there are more powerful creatures hidden in lairs underneath those pyramids. Asheron has established a gatestone at each that allows adventurers into the hidden lairs, but beware! It is not an easily repeated passage."
Town Crier tells you, "Visit the pyramids in the Halaetan Islands, A'mun Desert, Linvak Mountains, Esper Mountains, Obsidian Plain, or Aerlinthe Island to see."
Town Crier tells you, "T'thuun's Patriarchs are raiding all over Dereth! Have you seen them and their awful minions here yet? There must be some method to their madness..."

Ulgrim Rumors

Free Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Deru trees of Marae Lassel are under attack, eh? I sure hope they don't wither and die. That's where I keep all my stuff!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Patriarchs? Where? Don't try and scare me like that, kid. Yeah, their raids are pretty scary. I'm afraid they may be after my secret stash of stout. No, wait, I don't have a secret stash, because I drink it all as it comes in. But if I did have one, I'd be pretty afraid of the Patriarchs taking it."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Something even juicier's been lurking underneath those six ley node pyramids, eh? Fascinating... I could have cleaned those tunnels out, if there had been enough stout in it for me. Blighted Mana shards aren't really what gets me going."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Everybody's on the hunt for those Pristine Mana Shards! I haven't had the heart to tell anyone that I found a great big chest full of those things on my last visit to Vissidal Island."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I had no idea that they were needed for these mana forge contraptions so I just gave them to my little Merwart friends, who like to bash them into powder and sprinkle them on food. I think it keeps their teeth and coats shiny... Or was I thinking of something else?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Seen the masks from this festival season? Scary! Intimidating! They'll haunt my dreams! While I'm sober, that is."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "That was a hint to get me some stout, kid."

Stout Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Does it strike you as unseemly that Asheron has given over all the node-cleansing work at those six pyramids to we frail humans? I thought that was his specialty, defeating archdemons with the power of the light and whatnot. I think Asheron's getting lazy in his old age."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Fall has come! See the leaves turn, see the pumpkins sprout around Glenden Wood, see the kids wandering past on their way to the disco... Eh, what was that?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Happy ninth anniversary! Ninth anniversary of what? You can't mean that. The ninth anniversary of my presence on this benighted island, of course. And, you know, humanity's freedom from Olthoi enslavement and things like that."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I do love the turn of the seasons. Cider's particularly tempting this time of year. And if I were the sort of sot who drank cider, I'd be particularly tempted to have some. Bring me more stout!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I saw Claude wander past the other day, wearing one of those new masks. Seeing that disembodied snake head dangling above the floating, cloaked void of a Virindi body is almost enough to put one off the drink. Almost."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Oh, a cool mug of delicious stout, how kind of you..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Hey, there was a Pristine Mana Shard in here! What luck!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "No, of course I was kidding. There wasn't any Pristine Mana Shard in my stout, that would just be unbelievable. Actually it was a whole Mana Forge Key."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Oh, the Deru Trees this, and the Deru Trees that. Dang Deru Trees, always fainting and wilting as soon as a ravening archdemon with acid for blood and a heart full of rot starts gnawing on their roots... what a bunch of nervous nellies!"

Updated Locations

Nodes now have a Gatestone that will transport you to a Blight Lord's Lair when given 20 Blighted Mana Crystals.

At the Moarsmen City there are now new spawns surrounding the Temple of T'thuun. The new spawns consist of Afessa Sclavus Soldiers, Moarsman Priors, Illu Sclavus, Sishalti Tentacles, and Blighted Moarsmen.

Also the spawn density all around the Moarsman City has been increased. The usual spawn now has about 4-5 Moarsmen rather than 2 like before the patch. The Moarsmen still don't drop regular loot but they do drop Pristine Shards at an increased rate.

Known Issues

The candies were never meant to be stored for year round use.

The timer was actually added last year to stop this, seeing as how many players wanted to hold on to some of these candies for fun past Halloween, a compromise was reached of making them non stackable but removing the timer. This way players can keep a few of these candies but can not store hundreds of them.

All previously collected candies will stay the way they were.

The monster fights still have a couple technical aspects to get right. So they were cut from this month to make sure they are fully functional when they are introduced. That town crier didn't get the memo.
