Patch #9.1 details - Halloween event, new chat format & more!

This is quite a big patch - so big in fact that it’s technically split in two! From this patch tomorrow, players will start to collect Halloween candy. This candy can be used once Halloween starts on the 1st - with a new vendor at /event tp.

Players can buy a whole host of items, with new items being added periodically over the course of the event. Including, but not limited to EXCLUSIVE Halloween pets, common trade materials, and some super-secret items coming later in the month :eyes:

During the event, you will also be able to find Halloween clue scrolls - these clue scrolls have the same challenges as a special clue scroll, but give you a bonus chance to roll on some Halloween exclusive clue scroll items!

Also - logging in from tomorrow until the end of the event grants you the Pumpkin Slime pet for free! Just log in from tomorrow onwards to receive it.

NOTE: There may be a prize to the person who collects the most candy…
