harvest festival hall

Harvest Festival Hall Continues

Harvest Festival Hall remains available until Thursday, November 5.

To get to Harvest Festival Hall, travel to Eldritch Academy from Pora Elinu or speak to Ellonia [Halloween Guide], found next to the pumpkin decorations in any town.

Once inside Eldritch Academy, speak to Titiana to enter the Hall, then speak to the witch Serena to begin, and use the cannons to repel waves of monsters intent on stealing every last bit of candy they can get their grubby paws on.

Serena rewards you with Halloween Candy for your efforts, and you can trade your Halloween Candy in to Ellonia [Halloween Guide] in most towns. Select “Accessories” to see what's offered in the Halloween Candy shop and exchange your candies for some fantastic special items!
