Greetings knights!

The Dark Harvest Festival makes its return! The Punkin King and his gourdlings are on the loose and causing sweet, sweet chaos in the Clockworks!

Find the Punkin King in the daily prestige mission, The Dark Harvest, but don't let down your guard elsewhere, because he could also show up when you least expect it! Collect candy tokens, then trade with Maskwell in Haven Town Square for:
  • Frankenzom masks
  • Spookat masks
  • Phantom masks
  • Scarab masks
  • Harvest Prize Boxes

Should you find yourself in possession of any interesting crafting material as a result of a Punkin King encounter, visit the Mysterious Alchemy Machine.

Greetings Knights!

A few select knights are brave and crazy enough to drop behind enemy lines. Lieutenant Desna and her elite Recon Rangers are the first line of attack. Dangerous Prize Boxes feature items favored by Desna and the Rangers. Not only is this gear is designed to intimidate, but also do as much damage to the enemy as possible. As requested by Desna, their armor is equipped with razor-sharp spikes and other hazardous features, because “Even a dead Ranger should make their foes bleed.”

Recon Rangers are trained never to give up. Each Ranger is outfitted with a shield known as The Bitter End--the name serves as a reminder to all as to precisely how far a Recon Ranger is willing to go.

Contents include:
* Dangerous Dragon Wings (new)
* The Bitter End
* Anti-Personnel Spikes
* Dangerous themed armor and helms
* Dangerous themed accessories (new)

Dangerous 2016 Prize Boxes are available from now through October 18th, 2016, and details on the box can be found here.
