Halloween has returned to Tyria and the Blood Prince has emerged to threaten the Mad Realm and our world! He must be stopped!


To Begin

blood-and-madness1. Open your mail and read the letter from Magister Tassi.  If you hit "Show Me" you will be directed to the Haunted Nolani Waypoint in the Black Citadel. Go there.

2. Once in the Black Citadel at the Haunted Nolani Waypoint, head North and speak with Venna Castblade who will allow you into the story instance, The Reliquary.

3. You'll be transported to the Nolani Academy Ruins. Read the note on the ground from Tassi and proceed down into the crypt to find Tassi. .

4. Talk to Tassi for a long time and the Blood Prince will appear. Kite the Blood Prince, throw candy corn at him, then fight his minions.

5. Tassi will then give you a golem and consumable Halloween finishers. Exit the instance.

6. Complete the achievement, A Sweet Friend, to progress Tassi's story. The golem provided by Tassi will update you as to her progress.


In the Open World

  • Go to Queensdale, Kessex Hills, and Gendarran Fields to the Haunted Doors that will appear.  The green doors are for the Mad King and the purple/red doors are for the Blood Prince. Click on the door and be ready! Completing these door events will progress the achievement, Shut the Doors.
  • carving-pumpkinCarve pumpkins, mine Candy Corn, and purchase Halloween themed items from vendors.

The Mad King will be at Lion's Arch (Grand Plaza or Mystic Plaza) on Halloween, October 30 at 9am to November 1 at 9am PDT. Play his Mad King games and you will earn the achievement, A Royal Tradition which also counts toward the achievement, A Sweet Friend.


Mad Realm

moonEnter the Mad Realm through one of the Haunted Doors and that will take you to the floating isle above the Mad King's Labyrinth. Talk to the Lunatic Boatmaster to go to the Lunatic Inquisition or the Mad King's Clock Tower. You can also use the portal on the ground to take you to the Labyrinth. To get out of the Mad Realm exit through one of the portals behind the waypoints.



Lunatic Inquisition

Just outside home cities is a tent with a pumpkin icon on top. The ghost there, Rasmus, will also transport you to the Lunatic Inquisition. The Lunatic Inquisition pits players against one another inside the Labyrinth.  In there you will need to survive the night by completing events using found items and other secrets. The game starts with 20 Villagers and 1 Lunatic. Villagers are converted to Lunatics if they die so as the game progresses the number of Lunatics increases and Villagers decrease.


1. Watch out for the Alarms that alert Lunatics to your location. They are faces on the walls so avoid them or run away if you trigger one.

2. Watch your buff bar for Mad King Commands and do what he says (ponder, cower, shrug, salute, or dance).

3. Collect the items below:

  • Get bones for Maise located in the NW.
  • Get torches for Portia located in the NE.
  • Get black goo for Samson located in the SW.
  • Get spider webs for Ewan located in the SE.

Scoring - at the top of the screen are numbers. The number on the left is your score and the number on the right is the top player's score. See the scoring chart below:

Type Action Points
Survive Don't Die 1 point/minute
Items Discovered Number of Items Handed to NPC 5 points/item
Narrow Escape Dodge Lunatic Attacks 10 points/successful dodge
Commands Obeyed Obey Lunatic Commands 25 points/successful obey
Courtiers Stopped Pwn Lunatics 25 points


1. Convert Villagers to Lunatics.

2. If a Villager is running away plant a Scarecrow in their path and use the Mad King Says ability to make Villagers do what you say (ponder, cower, shrug, salute, or dance).

3. Use the 4 teleport pads on the ground in the north, south, east, and west for faster travel. When standing on the teleport pad, the red dots on your mini-map indicate where the Villagers are currently located.
