Halloween 2016 brought back some popular Halloween-related activities from previous years as well as the pumpkin patch of Halloween 2011 and 2012. It went live on October 1st and is scheduled to end in early November.
Butchers can be found haunting graveyards around Britannia. In addition to casting high level Necromancy spells, they also summon hordes of undead to defend themselves. When defeated, a pumpkin carving kit can be found on their corpse roughly 50% of the time.
This can be used on Carvable Pumpkins to carve them into 1 of 9 designs for Orange Pumpkins or 1 of 2 designs for Green Gourd Carvable Pumkins
Once again farmers can harvest pumpkins this season. The larger pumpkins bear the names of Developers and Event Moderators. If one tries pick it up, it turns into a Killer Pumpkin. After defeating a Killer Pumpkin carvable pumpkins can be found in the corpse. These pumpkins can be carved using the carving kit found on Butchers. They can be Carved into 1 of 9 designs
