RS Halloween Holiday Giveaways

Its become a tradition for Jagex to have an annual Halloween event. What is in store for players this year? Read and find out more about what to expect during the Runescape 2012 Halloween event.

Runescape 2012 Halloween Date

This year the event will be held from October 22, 2012 to November 4, 2012. This has been confirmed and the news is visible on the Runescape home page.

According to a livestream on the Runescape home page, Mod Tony W is creating the content for this year's event. Hints were also made that the 2012 content will include something about pirates.

Stay tuned for more information. This page will be updated as soon as more news is released.

Items, Costume and Emotes

For many, the most important thing is what goodies they will receive. Traditionally, all players will receive at least one item for free. Costumes or clothing sets are also given away on some years. Special scary emotes are also added and are available to be unlocked during the event.

The event itself is both similar and different from a quest. Players start it off by talking to a designated non-player character (NPC) who will generally give them the story behind this year's Halloween and why they need the player's help with something. Then players will need to figure out and complete some puzzles to finish the event and get the reward.

While this sounds very similar to the usual RS quest content, one key difference is that this event is one time. That is to say, it can only be done during the Halloween event. Afterwards it will no longer be available. Thus, new players will not be able to unlock any of the previous rewards.

Holiday Items

In previous years Halloween events have been quite fun and possibly the most fun was had way back in 2001 and 2002. Why those two years in particular?

That's because one those two occasions Runescape players received the first Halloween holiday items that were simply dropped on the ground. The first item (2001) was the pumpkin which is edible and used to heal 14 hitpoints. Today it heals 140. The other drop was the three different colored Halloween masks (red, blue and green). The masks are, of course, wearable.

The fun is in that these items are now so extremely rare that they cost over 100 million gold pieces in the Grand Exchange. So basically, those who were lucky enough to get them during the drop dates are now exceedingly rich!

Ever since 2003 Jagex had made all holiday items untradable so these days it seems players will just have to be content with using their free Halloween items and enjoying the emotes.
