Dark Harvest Returns

The Dark Harvest Festival makes its return! It’s no trick, the Punkin King and his gourdlings are causing sweet, sweet chaos in the Clockworks!

Find the Punkin King in the daily prestige mission, The Dark Harvest. However, don't let your guard down, because he could also show up elsewhere when you least expect it! Collect candy tokens, then trade with Maskwell in Haven Town Square for:

  • Frankenzom masks
  • Spookat masks
  • Phantom masks
  • Scarab masks
  • Harvest Prize Boxes

Should you find yourself in possession of any interesting crafting material as a result of a Punkin King encounter, visit the Mysterious Alchemy Machine.

The Dark Harvest Prize Box contains costumes and accessories within the Dark Harvest theme. Trade in your tokens to discover the offerings. This year, the festival runs through November 4, 2019. Your candy tokens and Maskwell will stick around through November 7, 2019.

Another Cue from Nature


TO: All Knights

SUBJECT: Taking Another Cue From Nature

In order that we may better survive while on Cradle, Spiral HQ science teams continue to gather data on ways to blend in with local flora and fauna. Study and analysis are ongoing, and as part of that, we ask for your assistance again with field testing.

Volunteers for OPERATION MIMIC TWO will receive, as part of the Vile Prize Box, items that mimic some of the most toxic creatures on this planet. For example:

* Venom Fiend Wings

* Venom Fiend Mail

* Venom Fiend Mask

* Venomous Aura

* Vile Helms and Armors

* Vile Accessories

SUMMARY: OPERATION MIMIC is go! Please remember to report your findings to Spiral HQ.

Tortodrone Migration!

Since the troubles with the last Tortodrone Migration, Spiral HQ established a monitoring station in the Ancient Grove. Recon Knights there report an increase in activity and suspect the Fiends have returned to the Grim Gates. Spiral HQ is sending you to investigate!

Gather intel and Fiendish Glyphs from Fiends in the Clockworks. Explore the Ancient Grove and collect Ancient Shell materials. Craft new Tortodrone handguns at the mysterious alchemy machine!

Katastrophe Returns!


Black kats are once again storming the Moorcroft Manor Archives and consuming the precious tomes within! We need all knights of rank 4-1 and greater to gear up and retrieve Ancient Pages from these nefarious creatures. The event will run through August 28th.

Accept the Kataclysmic Confrontation prestige mission and/or fight through kat levels in the Clockworks to find black kats. Then, visit Montague in Moorcroft Manor, or the Mysterious Alchemy Machine in Haven, with your collection of Ancient Pages, to craft some Kat related gear.

If you dare to perform a Dark Ritual and survive the encounter, you may find yourself in possession of a Black Kat Cowl or a Wicked Whisker which allow you to craft the following gear:

  • Kat Claw cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Hiss cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Eye cloak, mail, raiment
  • Black Kat cloak, mail, raiment, hood, mask

If you have participated in a previous Kataclysmic Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, they are still valid! Ancient Page tokens do not expire.

- Kat Suit Costumes
