    Hello people,

    As far as I can tell it's just straight up gambling.

    Right click bucket to put some candy in it (costs some labour). If it works, you can either cash it in at the coffin next to the quest npc, or you can gamble again and try and put more candy in the bucket.

    The End.

    No skill; just straight up gambling with your labour, and praying to RNGesus.

    Oh, and when you get 10 broken bucket pieces, you can have another free gamble! Yey.

    So I can totally see by the end of this event ending up with nothing. I've failed 4 times at heroic (the second bucket fill)...

    as an aside, I thought games were trying to remove gambling... think of the children!

    thank you for these explications, I thought I did everything wrong because I missed 5 times heroic too

    I do not know English and it is very difficult to have explications in French, I use google trad but it's not easy. thank you

    (Picture a businessman here that looks kinda like he just downed 3 bottles of mild hot sauce, explaining to you that if you get it without spending money it's not gambling, and since you have non-patron labor regeneration of 5LP/5min even the labor you use is free...)

    That's kinda what I expect the official response to your post would be.
    I shall be telling this with a sigh

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    *shrugs* It's just the same as regrading

    But along those lines, it would be nice to have the mirage isle casino to use up those spare event coins that are left over. I mean, if gambling is only defined by the spending of money, then 'playing games of chance with items we received for free with the hope of winning prizes' should be totally fine. Unless it's the setting that was the problem? In which case XL were smart not to make the regrade window look like a slot machine, eh?

    I gotta say, this is about the worst event I've seen so far in this game.

    Shamefully simple and brutally non-generous.

    Shame on you XL!

    Hard to see this as anything other than a giant FU from the developers. We all complained about not having a Halloween event. This was their response.

    You want a Halloween event? Here you go. Now quit your b*tching.

    I agree with Tinueda. Worst event I've ever done in an MMO.
