The first of The Secret World’s seasonal events kicks off with “Samhain” The Halloween Event.  The event includes 3 missions (2 Investigation, 1 Dungeon), 5 Achievements, 5 Lore, and an array of items!

Below is the compiled list of information on the event!


The missions for the Halloween event work as a chain, one must be completed to move on to the other.


TSW Halloween Event - Achievements

At time of writing, still haven’t found a bloody pumpkin head!  It comes randomly from a “Bag of Tricks and Treats!”

  • Hop-tu-naa, Trol-la-laa – Complete all Samhain Achievements
  • Harvester of Horror – Fill out all lore entries in the Samhain Section (See The Lore Locations)
  • Tails from the Crypt – Complete the seasonal mission The Cat God  (See The Mission Start)
  • Head Start – Find a Head-O-Lantern
  • Dead Ahead – Find a Bloody Pumpkinhead



(That We’ve Found….)

There are mobs all over in Blue Mountain that will have a buff, “Haunted” (identifiable by an orange swirl around them.)  When killed, they will spawn a “Kitty of Ulthar“, kill this kitty and get a “Bag of Tricks and Treats!”

The best spot we found to farm these is at coordinates (208,762), the cemetery north of the Wabanaki Trailer Park.

    Which one is the dungeon mission? Do you really need a group for it? Or can it be done solo with purple QL10 gear? Can you describe the missions a little bit?

    • The mission data will go live on the site in the next day or so. The dungeon really does require a few people to go smoothly. While I think it would be an interesting challenge for a solo player, there’s not much reason to aggravate yourself attempting it solo! You can also see the fight here!

    • Lasse

      It will be very though (and SLOW) to solo it. I tried to duo it with a friend of mine (he’s full Q10 epic with some Q10.X pieces) and I’m full Q10 Blue (with two 10.X epics) and we failed at his last ‘minion’ phase :/

      If you two-man it, and one of you die – the guy who died can respawn and join back in the fight.

  • Illandir

    With the “haunted” mobs in Blue Mountain, are they just random or condensed in areas? And are there only these mobs in blue mountain? No other zone?

    • Volaric

      Random. Can be any mob in the zone. We only found them in Blue Mountain.

  • RMC

    so where is the mission start?

    • The missions will start from a phone call when you log in, once the event is made live on the server. We’ll be posting our guides with all the details as soon as Funcom mentions when they’ll be activating the content on the live servers.

    The funeral Wrappings are the brown hand wraps available in Pangaea. Just a more holloween-y name for them.

    • Good to know. I’ve not really changed my outfit since the start of the game, so I don’t frequent the clothing store too often.

  • Agent “Drursion” Zero

    In order to get the Head-O-Lantern You must kill Incognito and click on his sack to receive it. I think he spawns in various locations. I found him at 175, 242 in Kingsmouth.

    • Cthugha

      he was at 128,82 for me

    • He does appear in different locations. But, thanks for getting some coordinates for people to check. Sadly the Bloody Pumpkin Head is completely random from the “Bag of Tricks and Treats” so, depending on your level of luck… You may get one quickly!

    • Nitachi

      Just found him at 470, 790 in Kingsmouth

    • Eveolene

      555, 797. Found him by running around the map, keeping off the roads and sticking to wooded areas. Not sure if he can spawn on beaches, though.
