It's Halloween time on HEX!

Get out those green thumbs and dust off your gardening gear - it's pumpkin-growing time! For an entire month, you can plant pumpkin seeds and care for your pumpkins from seedlings to giant Hagrid-sized pumpkins. The best part about growing pumpkins? Reaping the rewards, of course!

The better you care for your pumpkin, the bigger it will grow. The bigger the pumpkin, the more Holiday Booth Tickets and Wheel Spins you'll receive! Wheel Spins will be used to spin The Wheel of Fortune. When you spin the wheel, you'll have a chance of receiving either Galleons or items (no Holiday Booth Tickets in the wheel this year!) to reward you for your hard work. The Holiday Booth Tickets can be spent in the Holiday Prize Booth to purchase all kinds of incredible items, each level of items varying in both cost and rarity. These tickets are the official Holiday currency, so if you don't see something you want to buy at the Booth during Halloween, you can save your tickets for the next time the Booth opens for prizes!

The Holiday Prize Booth is now open, so come see the awesome prizes that are available in there. We know you won't be disappointed!

This year, we are trying something new, so after the event has wrapped, we hope you'll stop by the Feedback Booth in the Atrium to give us some constructive feedback on whether or not you like it!

This Halloween, we encourage people to try and grow as many Hagrid-sized pumpkins as possible. The more giant pumpkins you grow, the larger your rewards! But never fear, for those of us that don’t have a green thumb, you can also acquire an item or two for growing smaller pumpkins. We, and Hagrid, love ALL pumpkins, so we want everyone who puts forth the effort to receive something.

All of the items are EXCLUSIVE to this event and will not be released by us, in any way, for at least twenty-four (24) months. Guaranteeing a certain amount of desirability!

Now, let’s explain a little bit how this will work. There will be several tiers and each tier will have an item. As you climb through the tiers, you will get all lower-tier items as well. So if you grow all Hagrid-sized pumpkins and sell enough of them, you will get the top-tier item (tier 4) and all other items as well, for a total of four prizes. The items and tiers are as follows:


Tier 1:
Poisonous Toadstool Charm


Tier 2:
Dobby's Tea Cosy


Tier 3:
Hagrid's Giant Tea Cup


Tier 4:
Animal Model - Runespoor

You will have until the end of the day on November 12th to plant pumpkins. The patch will remain open after planting ends for an additional week, until the end of the day on November 18th, so you have time to tend one final batch of pumpkins that are planted by the last day. Don't forget to take a look at the Pumpkin FAQs and Pumpkin Guide before you start your growing!

Lastly, if you run into any technical issues or glitches specifically related to pumpkin-growing, please head over to the Pumpkin-Growing Errors & Glitches thread for assistance!

Frequently Asked Pumpkins Questions

- How many Hagrid-sized pumpkins do I need to grow for the tier prizes?

- Do I have to sell my pumpkins for Galleons to be eligible for the tier prizes?
Nope! You can sell your pumpkins for Wheel Spins or for Galleons, both will count.

- The item I wanted is sold out in the Holiday Booth! Will it be restocked?
Items that sell out from the booth will not be restocked, but since holiday booth tickets can be saved for all holidays, you never know what will pop up into the booth for the next holiday!

Bobbing for Apples!

Want even more Halloween fun? This year, you'll have an opportunity to go Bobbing for Apples! Users who are active around the site may receive an Apple Bobbing Ticket as an event. You'll use this ticket to go Bobbing for Apples.

How will this work? Take your ticket over to the Apple Bobbing Barrel and click one of the three floating apples, then choose how you're gonna bob. You'll receive either galleons or an item - every ticket is a winner!

Have fun chatting and exploring the site, but please remember to read our RE Abuse thread as well. You'll only make it to next Halloween if you're an honest hunter! Users can receive a maximum of twelve (12) tickets per day - up to one every two hours - but we will not be stating what the requirements are to be considered 'active.' Go out and have some fun!

The very last day to go Bobbing for Apples is November 4th.

so two questions I am wondering

Quote:
So if you grow all Hagrid-sized pumpkins and sell enough of them



by sell does this mean for galleons and wheel spins or holiday booth tickets.... or both?


and do we get to know how many we have to grow and sell to reach each tier?

Another question - Holiday Booth tickets. The post says

'(no Holiday Booth Tickets in the wheel this year!)'


Will we have an opportunity to earn the tickets in some other way if they don't come off the wheel?

There is a chance to get tickets from selling your pumpkins.

Let's see if i got this straight. Let's say P3 reaches HS and i sell it to Hagrid. I will get both wheel spins and tickets, correct?
Also, when i go to spin the wheel i will have the chance to get items from all tiers as mentioned above, right? But what if I decide to keep my spins for later use? Will the system recognize that these spins come from a HS pumpkin and allow me to get items from all tiers?

@Keyla You will have the option to receive wheel spins + booth tickets, or galleons + booth tickets, when you sell your pumpkin. The items in the tiers listed above are not related to the Wheel of Fortune - those items shown are specifically for if you sell enough pumpkins over the course of the entire pumpkin growing season.

And how exactly will we have the chance to win one of them if not from the wheel?
Sorry for bombarding you with questions, i just want to make sure I understood well.

@keyla By growing and selling enough pumpkins. So if you grow Hagrid-sized pumpkins and sell enough of them, you will get the top-tier item and all other items as well, for a total of four prizes. If you only grow smaller pumpkins, you'll only be eligible for lower tiers.
