Halloween Event Begins! - This Week In RuneScape

Written by developer on . Posted in RuneScape News

The leaves are turning and spooky season approaches. It's time for this year's Halloween Event!

Pumpkin Pete's Halloween Event

This year's Halloween Event has arrived! Pumpkin Pete has set up a pumpkin patch in Fort Forinthry as he attempts to harness Necromantic energy to create a new look head for himself. Unfortunately, due to his paltry Necromancy skills, he's got it a little wrong and unleashed a swarm of Pumpkins across Gielinor...

Team up with fellow players to smash pumpkins at communal Pumpkin Parties, help Pumpkin Pete with his daily ritual to grow his new head, or destroy any rogue pumpkins that appear while skilling to find Halloween-y rewards!

  • Pick up the Rotten Pumpkin Head from Pumpkin Pete and smash 250 pumpkins to restore it to it's former glory. This new Mask has the added benefit that prevents Light Sources on T1 and T2 Ritual locations from degrading during Necromancy Rituals!
  • Smash pumpkins to find Sweet Enhancers with beneficial effects to use during the event
  • Find Halloween treats like the Ensouled Pumpkin Mask, Orange Hallowe'en Mask and other cosmetics!

We've reduced the H'oddment costs of Soul Surge & Soul Dive ability overrides and halved the number of pumpkins required for the Pumpkin Mask upgrade.

These changes were based on final testing and balancing throughout last week.

These changes are reflected in the Hallowe'en announcement post from last week, so please refer to the updated information in our announcement post.

Our Next Graphical Area Update
The Result of Your Votes

Last week, we asked you to vote on which part of Gielinor you would like to see graphically updated next.

The votes are in across our website, Reddit, Social Channels and email - and the winner is Rellekka! We'll be working to bring this new updated look for the area into the game before the end of the year. Stay tuned for more news on this update in the future.

Treasure Hunter Calendar
Grim Harvest Returns

Starts October 16th | Ends November 9th | Grim Harvest

The harvest is upon us! Smash Pumpkins in Grim Harvest for H'oddments, a seasonal currency earned with every key which can be exchanged for scarily good cosmetic rewards as well as Halloween themed items from the past!

Fill the Harvest Bonus bar as you smash pumpkins - when filled, choose between a modifier or a reward item!

Grim Harvest and the H'Oddments Store includes many of the rewards you can find smashing pumpkins in-game, including brand new "Overhead Emotes", brand new cosmetics for Fort Forinthry, the Soul ability override scrolls, the Orange Hallowe'en Mask and the Ensouled Pumpkin Mask!

All these and much, much more can be picked up throughout the Halloween Event, and tokens for these can be won through the Grim Harvest promotion running alongside the event until November 9th!

Patch Notes
Fixes and improvements in this week's game update

Fort Forinthry

  • When using a slayer trophy on the guardhouse wall, players are now presented with multiple options for where to place their choice of trophy.
  • Corrected the blueprint requirements for the Side Gate to Woodcutters' Grove. It now requires 50 Construction, since it requires the 'Unwelcome Guests' quest which also requires 50 Construction.
  • The Lodestone and Eastern Side Gate Blueprints are now hidden from the Fort Blueprint table once built.
  • Granny Rowan is back to her old self (don't call her old to her face, mind you!) and she can help prepare Overloads again once you've assembled your Tier 3 Workbench.


  • Fixed an issue where players who reset the 'Ghosts Ahoy' quest with Nastroth's Constitution and Prayer major reset now also resets Vessel of the Harbinger quest.
  • Malignius Mortifer can now be spoken to in the City of Um to complete the relevant Anagram Clue Scroll.


  • Hero Point drops and Menaphos reputation messages no longer overlap each other.
  • Fixed an issue with resetting the Croesus 'Encounter Contribution' score at the end of the encounter.
  • Fixed an issue where some players were unable to use fishing spots at the Giant Oyster.
  • Cave Nightshade seeds are now correctly named within the Seedicide settings interface.
  • Resolved an issue where weapon poisons did not apply correctly or leave an empty bottle when used.
  • The 'Triple Trouble' achievement now unlocks only after speaking to all 3 brothers in 'Tai Bwo Wannai Trio'.
  • On mobile, the Fight Kiln wave counter has moved from middle of screen to the side.
  • Fixed an issue where players were able to walk through a table in the Archaeology Exam Centre.
  • Resolved an issue where unavailable outfits in the wardrobe could be equipped.
  • The Black Necronium Kiteshield has been moved to the right category in the override category.
  • Adjusted the wardrobe camera position for keepsaked items to correctly focus on the area in question.
