Missed your chance to get some Jack o' Lanterns in the Halloween Event? Need another Halo Soul to finish off your costumes? Well fear not, for your characters can all get a Lantern any time of year and enjoy some delicious sweets at the same time. The quest Pioneer Halloween (Ep 2 Event category) can reward players with Jack o' Lanterns, though you'll have to work together with others to complete it. The heartless Principal Tyrell has banned all sweets from Pioneer 2, forcing growing children to sup on meager monomate rations. You have been hired to smuggle special goods from the notorious fugitive Naura sister's hideout on Gal da Val island. You will need to head to Ragol and clear out a path to the cake sisters, and bring their latest confectionery creations back for all the children, and of course, you too will be able to partake in the cake (I promise it's not a lie!), and there is also a special secret party prepared for you to celebrate your generosity. Your goal will be to collect 8 different types of Cakes to get the reward. You'll need to find some friends to run this with you, as which style of cake you get is tied to your account, though there is a special bonus cake to get as well. It can be quickly completed in 2 runs of the quest, with people changing to another account for the 2nd run (7 different accounts needed), and then all 4 participants can receive a lantern. Cake Type Info: Pioneer Halloween takes the players through either Jungle North and East, OR through Mountain and Seaside (randomized which map set you get). The Jungle maps seems to be slightly faster, but neither takes very long and it can be done on normal difficulty. Jungle Maps: Mountain/Seaside Maps: One thing to avoid in the quest is the Prankster Rappy; he shows up as the first rappy just after you warp to the 2nd map, and if you speak to him he will ask you "Trick or Treat?" and open your inventory. If you give him a cake, then he just eats it (wasting one of your cakes), but if you don't give him anything, he plays a trick on you and temporarily shrinks your character for a minute or two. Simply ignore him and don't speak to him and nothing will happen. There is also a 4switch door halfway through Mountain to open (switches stay pressed). Switches: Once you reach the cake sisters, they will give you "A Lot of Cake", but don't immediately take it back to the quest giver. Instead, you'll need to backtrack a short ways to find the hidden warp to the Secret Rappy Party. For Seaside this is off in the small side room from the large beach areas, and for Jungle it is early in the second area near the first warp, hidden away in some shrubbery. Jungle Rappy Party: Seaside Rappy Party: At the Secret Rappy Party you can get the special bonus cake (a lemon cake with lemon frosting shaped like a rappy) if you come here before returning to the quest giver, while you still have the quest board item 'a lot of cake' instead of the inventory item 'cake'. One of the side rappies at the party will ask you how many rappies are in the quest, and if you give the correct answer of 25, you get the bonus lemon rappy cake. After you get this bonus cake, then you can go return to Pioneer 2 and go to the quest giver. She will take the 'a lot of cake' from you, and divide it up for the children, and give you the leftover pieces to enjoy yourself. You will receive as many 'cake' items as there are players in the game, so once you do the run you should share your cakes with everyone else who ran with you (and they should share theirs with you) so that everyone has one of each type. If you have 8 different cake types(i.e. on the second run or whatever), then return to the Secret Rappy Party and speak to the lead rappy. Give him the 8 different cakes and for your generosity he will reward you with a Jack o' Lantern! This is actually fairly easy to do, even if it does require a small group of players helping each other, but it's a really cool and unique quest. I hope you guys have fun exploring it and enjoy getting some extra Jack O' Lanterns!
