We here at Spiral HQ want to wish you a happy Gobble Day. In celebration, our plump little friends, the Gobble Snipes, have started their annual migration to...we're not really sure where. Hmm. To protect them in transit we Spiral HQ has enclosed them in Gobble Snipe Boxes Boxes. Rest assured I’ve been told there are air holes this time.
Should you wish to host one of these fluffy creatures in your Guild Hall, these boxes can be had through December 1, 2017. Check out the details here!
We have confirmed that the Apocrean Harvester has emerged for it's semiannual attempt to collect souls. Spiral HQ needs your help!
From now through November 30th, travel onto the Grasping Plateau full of trapped souls and phantom-like monsters. In a maze-like graveyard, knights will find the Apocrea trapping and collecting souls. This sinister being will pursue any who enter the Grasping Plateau hoping to add to the collection. Work together to free souls and find Apocrean Sigil tokens which can be used at the Obelisk of Creation to craft Obsidian weapons and the Grasping Aura.
You don't want to get caught out there alone--definitely bring your friends with you on this mission, and try not to lose sight of them! For a detailed brief on Cradle's previous encounters with this nefarious entity, go here.
In an effort to make it easier to give your knight the best look, the gremlins at Spiral HQ have created a Style Kit. Now you can easily swap between appearance modifiers (personal colors, eyes, and height) once you have added them to your Kit.
Access your Style Kit through the knight portrait in the upper left of the screen.
Once you have your kit, any modifier you use will be added to that kit.
You can swap between items you have used using the menu for a small fee. The fee is to help prevent people from spamming public areas with changes and would distracting to other players.
Vatel will now offer to sell height modifiers.
Modifiers you have previously used will not be added, only those you use after this point.
With fall here and knights using their Style Kits, Haven is bursting with color. But once a knight descends into the Clockworks their decisions aren't black and white, they're somewhere in the Grey. With this in mind, Spiral HQ has put together a box for knights with singular tastes.
Dig into a Grey Prize Box and find a grey costumes, accessories, a grey footstep aura, or sprite pods. Lucky knights might find a Silver Personal Color that they can add to their Style Kit. This silver color change will not be added to Vatel’s inventory in Haven.
The Grey Prize Box contains items such as:
Silver Personal Color
Maskeraith Pod (Grey), Drakon Pod (Grey), and Seraphynx Pod (Grey)
Grey Dragon and Valkyrie Wings
More information on the Grey Prize Box and its contents may be found here.
With the above release it is now possible to make a statue of your knight that actually looks like a statue! With that in mind we're reducing the price of statues through this month. If the statue you want is not on sale, please check back later. You'll know it's on sale by the "sale" tag on the icon before you purchase it.
The Dark Harvest Festival is Back! It’s no trick, the Punkin King and his gourdlings are causing sweet, sweet chaos in the Clockworks!
Find the Punkin King in the daily prestige mission, The Dark Harvest. However, don't let your guard down, because he could also show up elsewhere when you least expect it! Collect candy tokens, then trade with Maskwell in Haven Town Square for:
Harvest Prize Boxes - New Harvest Accessories!

Additional Patch Notes:

While collecting the roses for the Rose Regalia Reunion Spiral HQ received a communication from the monitoring station in the Ancient Grove. Recon Knights there report an increase in activity and suspect the Fiends have returned to the Grim Gates. Spiral HQ is sending you to investigate!
Gather intel and Fiendish Glyphs from Fiends in the Clockworks. Explore the Ancient Grove and collect Ancient Shell materials. Craft new Tortodrone handguns at the mysterious alchemy machine!
Below are a few additional changes:

We are declaring a state of emergency in the Moorcroft Manor Archives, as black kats are once again storming the area and consuming the precious tomes within! We need all knights of rank 4-1 and greater to gear up and retrieve Ancient Pages from these voracious vermin.
Do the Kataclysmic Confrontation prestige mission and/or fight through kat levels in the Clockworks to find black kats. Then, visit Montague in Moorcroft Manor, or the Mysterious Crafting Machine in Haven, with your collection of Ancient Pages, and craft stuff:
Kat Claw hood, mask, cowl
Kat Hiss hood, mask, cowl
Kat Eye hood, mask, cowl
If you happen to perform (accidentally, we assume) a Dark Ritual (yes, THAT dark ritual) and survive the encounter, you may find yourself in possession of a Black Kat Cowl or a Wicked Whisker. With Wicked Whiskers, dropped for all present party members, the following gear can be made:
Kat Claw cloak, mail, raiment
Kat Hiss cloak, mail, raiment
Kat Eye cloak, mail, raiment
Black Kat cloak, mail, raiment, hood, mask
If you have participated in a previous Kataclysmic Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, they are still valid! Ancient Page tokens do not expire.
Our new Kat Forecasting Intern predicts that the Kataclysmic Confrontation will run through August 3, 2017. Best of luck, knights!
