Story[edit | edit source]

While celebrating Halloween, the gang heard a familiar voice... "Don't you worry, I know how to handle strong women." Doesn't that sound like something Rain would say? Willing to do anything to get Rain back, and convinced he might be trapped in the vortex, the gang storm the castle in search of him. However, it ended up being an elaborate trap set up by the Pumpking Reaper to get his revenge for last year's Halloween...and this time he's brought along a new friend, the Skeleton King!

With the Halloween castle locked up tight, Lasswell and the gang must find a way forward if they've any hopes of rescuing Rain...

  • Castle Keep - ADV
    • Drops gil snappers worth 44,500 gil, which is 1168.1 gil/NRG.
    • Drops metal cactuars worth 275,000 exp, which is 7,218 exp/NRG.
      • This is less than Cactuar Dunes - Paradise (average 9333.3 exp/NRG), although this event is up for longer.
      • This is less than a full clear of Timber Tracks - Exploration (8362.5 exp/NRG), although this event takes less time than a full clear of Timber Tracks.
  • Castle Inner Chamber - ELT
    • Dispel does not remove Death Declaration, but the countdown can be increased using Survivor's Flask (obtained from last year Halloween event). Salve works with this item.
    • Death immunity (Safety Bit, Genji Shield) does not prevent your unit from dying to Death Declaration.
    • Fatal damage ignoring skills such as Zargabaath's Safety can prevent your unit from dying to Death Declaration, and reduce hp to 1, but will most likely die on other attacks since Death Declaration trigger at the end of player's turn.
    • Using a jump move will allow you to avoid receiving the Death Declaration on that unit. Use of Wind Drake Horn on your reviving unit can help so long as it can survive long enough to use party revive.
    • You can also use Rikku's LB to be able to resurrect after dying from Death Declaration skill.
    • The damage of Reap Blood will not exceed a unit's current HP, so be on the defensive when it is active as it will take no more than 50% of a unit's current HP.
  • Castle Inner Chamber - NIGHTMARE
    • After 26/10 maintenance, the fight has been nerfed:
      • Reduced ATK from 800 to 700.
      • Wailing Swipe's DEF/SPR break reduced from 45% to 20%.
      • The chance of him using MP absorption/restoration skills are reduced.
      • He can't cast Dream Stealer, Shadow Storm, and Accursed Flames after casting MP absorption/restoration skills.
      • Fire/dark imperil reduced from 80% to 50%.
    • Very high chance to do Wailing Swipe every turn, which is the only physical damage it does aside from normal attacks. Use a cover tank to minimize damage. The DEF/SPR break effect cannot be covered, so you will have to rely on break immunity skills. He has 0.78% or 1.5% chance of not using a swipe per turn.
    • Most of his magic damage use their current MP for damage calculation, meaning you can drain the skeleton king' MP using Osmose, Lance or similar skills to reduce their damage output. Once drained to 0, he'll practically deal no magic damage.
    • Since most of his skills relied on the MP mechanics, breaking his MAG will do nothing except reduce MP damage from Soul Siphon below 60% HP.
    • Once you have handled his physical attacks, and drained all of its MP, he'll become harmless from 100% to 60%.
    • Make sure to get him as close to 60% as possible while collecting esper orbs for the mission.
    • The real fight starts from 60%. This is where he'll able to use Soul Siphon to drain your MP. Below 40% he can use Eternal Torment, which will also restore his MP. However, once he cast either of these, it will lock out all of his magic attacks, with the exception of Hailfire, for the rest of his turn. If you absorb all of his MP every turn, he can only deal damage with physical attacks and Hailfire, which can be resisted with fire resistance.
    • In addition, he can decrease your dark and fire resistance by 50% below 60% and 40% HP respectively.
    • Below 60% HP he'll start using confuse to your party. Use confuse immunity gear/skill.
