Been told its 5 hours from start of one set to the start of the next, so as the first was at server time 8pm, the next should be server time 1 am

Been spamming the undead all day (while time permitted) and I have to say, it is a lot of fun to kill zombies over and over again. Plus the t15 weapon is super easy to get and super powerful. As a 1h+shield justi in pvp and pve this was useful to me both ways. Venan's holiday events have been fun all around with me and my friends that play. Keep it up guys!

Here are some thoughts I've had on how to maximize candy corn drops, for me at least.
1- used my elixir of luck that I got from Lucky.
2- wear all luck enchantment gear as I can
3- drop some initial e on toon I want going all the way (my sw), then do a little on other toons, back to sw.
4- burn EVERYTHING on one event. since there are higher drops at the higher levels in the event, the payout is far more worth it than having to burn to get to level 6 again.
5- focus on one toon for each event. don't bother burning on more than one toon at a time.
6- check free gs apps. I just picked up 36 tonight alone.
7- I had a fair amount of gs saved from drops (I'm very frugal on burning in raids when possible), so got the pumpkin shield for 1.5x corn drop rate. hurt paying that much gs, but I want the best weapon in the game, so I'll be there.

so far in 2 events I've burned all the pots I've had saved (like 9?), and I'm over 2500 candy corn already, for the toon I'm focused on. it's kind of unrealistic to expect all my toons to get the t15 weapon, that's just insane amounts of work.
good luck. results may vary :)

Also, I do not mind the events having a 4 hour off window. I can farm materials, complete my feats (pirate killer??), run gg MVP raids, or even eat dinner.

I say well done overall, venan. I'm not the most pleased with the weapon, as my main is wm, but I enjoy doing the events.

Seems the only way to the new weapon is spend gs, I am averaging around 200 candy corn per event per toon without spending, if I hit three events a a day for nine days that's only 5-6000 candy corn. A lot of gold shields to spend to get a weapon that May be obsolete in a few weeks when 2.0 comes out with t16 gear

During the last run through i paid more attention to the mechanics of the raid and learned the following.

phase 1, 8 waves, so 16e, reward 2 corn per wave = 16 corn
p2, 8 w, so 16e (32e so far) 4 corn pw = 32 c (48)
p3, 8 w, 16e (48e tot) 6 cpw = 48 c (96)
p4, 8w, 16e (64e tot) 8 cpw = 64 c (160 corn total)
p5, 8w, 16e (80e tot) 10 cpw = 80 c (240 c tot)
phase 6 maximum incursion, 14 corn per wave.

This shpuld help people work out what they need to do to get what they want !

Cheers,

Sharky
