Event Timing and Basics

  • The Spooky Festival occurs from Autumn 29th to 31st in Skyblock time, roughly every 5 days and 4 hours in real-time, with times changing between various hours (UTC)​​.
  • During the event, spooky mobs spawn, and all mobs drop candies when defeated. Trick or Treat chests also spawn, with a 1% chance from normal mobs and 3% from spooky mobs​​.
  • The goal is to collect as many candies as possible, competing against the entire player base. Green candies are worth 1 point, and purple candies are worth 5 points​​.
  • Spooky Mobs Spawns at graveyards at the hub (where it topically spawns zombies). Note that only hub with over 50+ players spawns them


  • Armor: Full bat person armor with necrotic/candied reforge and Wisdom V. Witch mask is also recommended.
  • Weapons: AOE weapons like Spirit scepter, Bonzo staff, or Glacial Scythe. A Pumpkin Launcher with at least 2000 rounds is crucial.
  • Pet: A Bat Pet (Epic) is highly recommended.
  • Accessories: Candy Relic or Artifact, Lucky/Eternal Hoof, and as much Magical Power as possible with sighted or bizarre reforge. Spooky Sack is also essential for additional storage​​​​.
  • You can also buy a bat firework at the hub to summon a bat that will spawn a lot of candies around them, killing them will award you with a purple candy


  1. Nighttime Farming:
    • Go to a specific hill in the Spider’s Den (-261 94 -277) just before the event starts and use a Pumpkin Launcher on the spooky mobs.
    • At 6 am (in-game time), switch to killing spiders in the big cave, and then return to the hill at 7 pm​​.
  2. Daytime Farming:
    • Farm Wolves in the Ruins during the day. It’s advisable to buy a Travel Scroll to the Hub Castle for quicker movement between locations​​.
  3. Optimal Locations and Techniques:
    • Prepare by finding an empty hub lobby about 15 minutes before the event.
    • Group up skeletons efficiently using Jingle Bells and maintain a strategic distance to manage their aggro.
    • For the Hub strategy, focus on Night Respawning Skeletons and Wolves, which is considered the most consistent for high scores​​.
