Blade & Soul’s ‘Blade & Ghoul’ Halloween event takes players into Zaiwei Ruins October 17

Yeah, I feel like this Halloween event name doesn’t quite work with the rhyme, but it does look cute on paper. “The veil to the Dark Realm is wavering over the Zaiwei Ruins, and its ghastly inhabitants have begun to seep into our realm,” NCsoft says in its promo for Blade & Soul’s big October shindig. “As Halloween looms ever closer, the time to defeat eerie enemies and earn delightful rewards has arrived!”

From October 17th through November 7th, level 50-plus toons will be zipping through the Zaiwei Ruins, which has been buffed with the power of darkness and infused with really sweet themed costumery. Of course, you’re getting a buff too, in the form of a 50% experience boost.

Not level 50? That’s OK; there are daily quests and challenges and bosses to take on too, all with the goal of collecting event tokens to exchange for sweet loot, both themed and not.

Cool. Zaiwei Ruins has been obsolete for almost a year. It is supposed to be a deadly zone with high rewards, but it became irrelevant as progression out paced the content.

So, I’m curious how well this will be implemented. Last time they tried to repurpose content in a similar manner, they ended up with a dungeon so incredibly hard that no one ran it. Even the leets were complaining here. (But since Korea had no issues as their progression is faster we just had to grin and bear it.)

Any Lyn Warden option dropping from the Trick or Treat Daily Dash on this? o.O

Not yet. I think that will be a Yuletide treat. But as you know, we are in large part beholden to the priorities in Korea.

In this case, I don’t see why it should be so. The work is basically done, Lyn isn’t a new race, and the Warden and the Lyn are wildly popular. Why not take the money on the table now?

Two things are painfully obvious. 1. Development for BnS in the West has been relegated to localization only. NA/EU can’t resolve their own issues or implement simple bug fixes. 2. Our schedule is 3 months behind Korea, while APAC regions are in sync.
