Event General Strategy

The first F/GO event with a dedicated event map, this event is more or less a normal farming event - with a twist. That is, there are two additional quest types - Party Time and Guerrilla quests, both of which will be detailed further below.

There are four types of materials in this event - Cupcakes, Sweet Candles, Trick Bats, and Pumpkin Lanterns. There are event CEs allowing additional drops for the first three, which should be obtained as soon as possible.

While only the *5 gacha CE (Halloween Petit Devil) grants bonus drops for Pumpkin Lanterns, this fact is mitigated somewhat by the existence of Guerrilla quests, which give Pumpkin Lanterns as rewards.

Party Time Quest

These quests appear twice per day, at 12:00 and 20:00 UTC respectively. Party Time Quests have a higher chance to drop the event CE Halloween Princess and Trick Bats. They also grant Golden Apples as rewards.These can be completed at any time before the event ends, and you do not need to clear the preceding Party Time quests in order to get a new one.

Guerrilla Quest

These quests appear four times in a day, the exact time of which would be hidden somewhere in the event map. Guerrilla quests have a higher chance to drop various event items, as well as the event CE Maid in Halloween.These can be completed at any time before the event ends, and you do not need to clear the preceding Party Time quests in order to get a new one.

Event Shop

These are the amounts needed of each event item in order to fully clear the event shop:

  • 6850 Cupcakes
  • 2200 Sweet Candles
  • 830 Trick Bats
  • 170 Pumpkin Lanterns

Essentials (Elizabeth Bathory (Caster), Twinkle Candy, Maid in Halloween, Halloween Princess, Crystallized Lore):

  • 500 Cupcakes
  • 100 Sweet Candles
  • 530 Trick Bats
  • 110 Pumpkin Lanters

Notably, Sweet Candles, Trick Bats and Pumpkin Lanterns can be exchanged for Cupcakes, meaning that the player need not focus on farming Cupcakes.

Farming Guide

It is recommended to do some FP gacha rolls, in order to secure a 3★ event CE. The non-gacha event CEs for each event item may be obtained either through quest drops, or by exchanging event items. Each CE grants a drop bonus to the material one tier below what it was exchanged with (e.g. Maid in Halloween, which is exchanged with Pumpkin Lanterns, grants a bonus drop to Trick Bats). Due to this fact, the *3 CE Trick or Treat can be skipped, as it is much more effective to obtain Cupcakes by exchanging higher-tier materials.

Party Time and Guerrilla quests provide the best farming spots for Trick Bats and Pumpkin Lanterns, respectively, meaning that it’s recommended to equip the appropriate CEs when entering.

Challenge Quest Guide

There are two challenge quests for this Halloween event: One for the free quests, and another for Guerrilla quests - the player obtains a Crystallized Lore upon the completion of each quest.

Free Quest: Encore Live

1/2

3 Shadow Elizabeth Bathory - Lancer (40,928 HP)

2/2

1 Elizabeth Bathory - Lancer (415,450 HP)

Notes: Due to being an all-Lancer quest, a party consisting of exclusively Sabers should be able to clear it rather easily.

Guerrilla Quest: All Night Visitors

The Guerrilla challenge quest is a 5-stage quest, consisting of all boss stages from Guerrilla quests. Hence, it is recommended to form a party with the priority of countering every single stage.

The enemies for this challenge quest are as follows:

1/5
1 Pumpkin Leader - Lancer (4,692 HP)
1 Hassan of the Cursed Arm - Assassin (76,002 HP)
1 Divine Arm of Dawn - Lancer (28,975 HP)

Recommended Servants: Medea
Notes: Due to Hassan’s short NP charge, it is recommended to kill him as soon as possible.

2/5
1 Pumpkin Leader - Lancer (6,666 HP)
1 Siegfried - Saber (97,682 HP)
1 Amazoness Queen - Saber (29,330 HP)

Recommended Servants: Gilgamesh, Orion, Euryale, Robin Hood
Notes: Although a pretty straightforward fight, Siegfried’s AoE NP may be somewhat troublesome.

3/5
1 Pumpkin Leader - Archer (8,428 HP)
1 Kiyohime - Berserker (174,678 HP)
1 White Chimera - Berserker (38,880 HP)

Recommended Servants: Any hard-hitting non-Berserker Servant
Notes: These hard-hitting Berserkers are arguably the most dangerous opponents of all five stages, as a stray crit or two may eliminate the player’s Servant. Clear this wave as soon as possible.

4/5
1 Pumpkin Leader - Lancer (10,812 HP)
1 Medea - Caster (152,315 HP)
1 Daemon - Caster (58,503 HP)

Recommended Servants: Any Rider
Notes: At this stage it’s more of an endurance contest, meaning that any Rider with damaging Noble Phantasm would perform well. Still, pay attention to the opponents’ NP charges.

5/5
1 Pumpkin Leader - Saber (12,726 HP)
1 Tamamo no Mae - Caster (230,492 HP)

Recommended Servants: Any Rider, Healer
Notes: Due to Tamamo’s non-damaging Noble Phantasm, this wave is arguably the easiest in the stage. Even so, the player’s party would also be somewhat low on HP, meaning that sustain-oriented Servants would be valuable.

As far as I know, this should be a bug. All event CEs should boost event drops.
Anonymous 18days ago
Can confirm that event CE's don't increase the amount by which drops are increased. Apparently it is either a bug, or doesn't start until the event reruns next year?
Drake 29days ago
I keep getting the same guerrilla quest, when do they increase the difficulty?
Ravenleaf 30days ago
Jack-o-lantern maxed out still only drops +1 candle. Not sure if its a bug or intentional on NA's part

Most likely a bug. All event CE's double the drops when Max Limit Broken.

Using 2 or more of the same craft essences at the same time does give you the double+ drop increase? or is only 1 effective even if there are multiple of the same craft essences E.G 5 "Halloween Petit Devil"

It stacks. I'm using 3 Jack 'O lanterns and getting +3 candles.

Ty bro, I'll pull for that CE.

Dragon princess's live stage isn't coming up with a free quest. Does it become available later or is this a bug?
