Gourdo’s Back for This Year’s Trick or Treat!


Gourdo has returned to TERA for Halloween! You’ll need to work together to take him down…but the rewards will be well worth the effort!

This Halloween season—starting Tuesday, October 22 and continuing until Tuesday, November 5—keep an eye peeled for Gourdo in most of TERA’s cities and major villages, such as Crescentia, Scythera Fae, and so on (but not in Velika or on Exodor).

During the event, Gourdo will appear on weekdays from 4 p.m. PDT until 9 p.m. PDT, and from noon to midnight on Saturdays and Sundays.

Once you spot him, it’s “smashing pumpkins” time! If your group takes him out, you’ll receive lots of awesome consumables, possibly including Squash Pie, Halloween-themed footsteps, or up to five Gourdo’s Moongourds!

Check out the possible rewards:

  • Squash Pie (100% HP)
  • Castanica Midnight Oil (+50% craft speed for 1 hour)
  • Ice Effect (consumable boost and character effect, not tradeable)
  • Fire Effect consumable boost and character effect, not tradeable)
  • Strongbox Key
  • [Event] Gourdo’s Moongourd ×2
  • [Event] Gourdo’s Moongourd ×5
  • Superior Noctenium Elixir
  • 10% Item XP Boost (2-hour)
  • Footsteps: Frightsteps

What could be easier? But here’s a curveball: There are also fake Gourdos! These phony pumpkinheads are invulnerable, and so no matter how much you beat them, they’ll never fall…and never drop any rewards. So even if you can take out a true Gourdo all by yourself, wailing on a Fake Gourdo will only make it angry.

If you manage to kill a real Gourdo and you pick up a Gourdo’s Moongourd, you’re in luck! Each day during the event, you’ll receive an [Event] Gourdo’s Campfire in your Parcel Post. Combine that with 100 Gourdo’s Moongourds to make a special Halloween Moongourd Pie—which you can then bust open to receive even more amazing rewards, such as autumn-themed Footsteps, a Moon pet, Skill Advancement Scrolls, Legacy Essences, or other items! And if you find yourself running out of event campfires, you can purchase more from the TERA Store.

Ready to get Gourdo? Then get going! He’s only around until November 5!
