Rules & Notes
Time Limit
Each participant is limited to a maximum of 40 hours in the Halloween event instances. This 40 hour limit applies to combined time in any of the Halloween instances, not each individual instance level.

Event participants must keep track of their time spent in the event instances, since the current instance system unfortunately does not track time spent across multiple login/instance sessions.

Note that the 60 minute timer that appears once you enter one of the Halloween Mayhem instances is not an official event time tracking feature.

This event is intended for solo hunters. Any attempt at abusing team mechanics or any other Entropia Universe systems or features in order to gain an unfair advantage over other participants will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.

Do not abandon the mission! If you abandon the mission for any reason, either intentionally or accidentally, all points earned up to that point will be lost forever. Support cannot and will not restore points for abandoned missions, regardless of the situation.

The Essence of Evil items required to spawn Count Vamp of Boorum bosses are now restricted to the instance level from which they are looted as follows:

  • Chipped Essence of Evil - Level 1 Instance
  • Flawed Essence of Evil - Level 2 Instance
  • Average Essence of Evil - Level 3 Instance
  • Flawless Essence of Evil - Level 4 Instance
  • Perfect Essence of Evil - Level 5 Instance

Happy hunting and Happy Halloween!
