I’ll be honest. If this update had only been the costumes and the adjustments that we got yesterday, I think that would have been plenty! My game is running better than ever. Pirate Mickey is adorable and I’m loving all the new decor to search for in chests. Yet today we have the beginning of our event which just adds even more awesome to an already solid update. So with my timer set to 11AM EDT, and my characters free of tasks or leveling up, I sat down to welcome Halloween to my Kingdom. Boys and girls of every age, wouldn’t you like to see something strange?
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST DMK EVENT
There are a few things to know if this is your first event.
Events are timed, so make sure to keep an eye on the timers in the menu that can be opened at the bottom of the screen. This will let you know when the event ends but also when milestones become available.
This time around we also have a bit of a roadmap to let us know the stages of the event. This is great as it will allow you to track your progress.
Event Currency is a special coin used only for the event. In this case, the Pumpkin King coins are what will help you open things in the vent. Collect them early and often.
The Color Purple denotes any quests that have to do with the Event. In general, these quests help with tokens and also drop event currency. They are clearly marked with a different color for your convenience.
Now that you know a little more about events, let’s check out this one!
Starting the Event
After a minor hiccup with getting the event to start up, we were greeted with Mickey needing to run off and start dressing up for Halloween. First world problems Mickey.
Getting his costume is easy enough. It doesn’t require much and if you have some chests cued up, you might even be lucky enough to grab one of the cloth pieces you need right off the bat.
As soon as you have his costume, it’s time to run off and start handing out candy.
Donald will also get a quest for his costume, but keep in mind, this one will probably take some time. Fortunately it is not limited time only. Thank goodness, because that would be super stressful.
Pretty soon, Mickey will realize that handing out candy alone is kind of lonely…and sort of creepy. So he’ll invite his best friend Goofy (Sorry Donald, you’re not forgiven for last Thanksgiving’s incident) over to his house to come up with a plan.
And to non one’s surprise, Goofy wants to have a sandwich eating contest. Can we just take a moment to talk about this guy’s metabolism? How does he not gain weight? All this guy does is eat. All. The. Time.
I got very excited as I was asked to clear some curse, but I’m guessing this is for land that has already been cleared, which is unfortunate as I need space. The quest simply auto completed for me.
With that completed…sort of…it was time to build Jack’s House, which came in at 1500 of the event currency, which I had just barely obtained. The building has a 6 hour wait time…but I couldn’t help but skip that so you guys could check it out.
And then, out of nowhere, Woody decided to get involved randomly. Okay cowboy. Do your thing I guess. Umm, do you need help or…no, you’re right. I’ll just wait over here.
And then Goofy and Mickey are ready to split up and start handing out candy to the kiddos. Honestly, I think Mickey just got tired of watching Goofy gorge himself on sandwiches. It’s okay Mickey, we don’t judge.
This is where I leave you for the day. We’ll catch up with these two over the weekend. The quest chain seems like plenty to keep us busy for at least a couple of days for sure!
We have two sales of note so make sure to check these out before you go buying away. I am pleasantly surprised at how these are not crazy over priced. They seem very reasonable and a great way to jump into the event.
New Parade Float
The new float will surely help you out with the event by dropping tokens and event currency.
Thanks to the promo, I was able to quickly snag Zero. He’s pretty adorable but also will help you to more quickly unlock the Nightmare characters faster, so if you’re going to get him, do it near the beginning of the event to save yourself some time and effort.
While many of them are not up for grabs yet, we have a handful of new attractions that we’ll be adding over the coming weeks. I have no idea where I’ll put them, but I’m glad to have them.
New Concessions and Decor
We also have a new concession stand to get us working towards event currency as well as plenty of new decorations, most of which will be found in your friendly neighborhood chests.
What’s to Come
It looks like we won’t be unlocking anything more until Saturday morning at 11AM, when we’ll get to start working on ol’ Jack. We also have a certain baddie to face in the coming weeks.
Not to mention that eerie stage which is just begging for a good fight to happen on it.
The event ends on November 1, so the next couple of weeks are going to be packed. So far I am really liking this event and it seems like there is more variety than with the Incredibles. What do you guys think so far? Let me know in the comments and happy candy giving!
