Halloween Event/Giant Monsters

Halloween Giant Monsters

There will be a spawn of either Eochai or Jack in Irons in every zone in which the event is active. Once one is defeated, another of the two will spawn in the same zone within a minute or two. Originally, for each spawn, there is a 90% chance that it will be Eochai, and a 10% chance that it will be Jack in Irons. The chance of Jack in Irons spawning was raised with the October 21, 2010 patch but the new chance of it spawning is unknown. Additionally, Jack in Irons only spawns in level 20 and up zones.

Faultline did not have any Giant Monster spawns during the 2007 event. The zone gained spawns during the 2008 event.

The Halloween GMs show up with small pumpkins marking their spawn site. This is the easiest way to tell a Halloween GM from a normal zone GM. Particle Physics in options must be set to at least Low to see the pumpkin patch.

Unseelie Court

The Unseelie Court was a new enemy group added for the 2006 event. They accompany the random zone spawns of Halloween Eochai and Jack in Irons.


Pumpkin-marked Eochai

These badges are awarded for defeating Halloween Giant Monsters and their attendant minions.

You have defeated the Halloween Jack in Irons.

You have defeated 20 of the Unseelie Court.

NOTE: The normal Croatoa Eochai and Jack in Irons still spawn during the Halloween Event and do not count toward their Halloween badges. They still reward their year round badges, Pumpkin King and Giant Killer.

Make sure you are fighting a GM within the pumpkin patch. If there are no pumpkins marking the spawn site, it is the zone GM and not the Halloween GM. Particle Physics in options must be set to at least Low to see the pumpkin patch.

  • After the release of Issue 21, Galaxy City was no longer accessible outside of the destroyed version in the tutorial or the Echo available via Ouroboros in which the Halloween GMs don't spawn (is this accurate?). Pictured are the locations were Eochai would spawn during the Halloween Event.
