I’m going to start with a little disclaimer her. While I got up to the point where Oogie can be welcomed in order to show his requirements here, I have not fully welcomed him yet. Even so, I wanted to get the info about him out as quickly as possible. I will probably do a separate celebration post where we toast to the end of the event and all get drunk on Witch’s Brew martinis. In the meantime, let’s pick up where we left off with Sally.
Leading up to the Fight
Apparently the way to bring out Oogie is to show a lot of public affection, which is a great way to upset those who don’t have any affection. Namely, big sacks of bugs. Also, I heard Mother Gothel is standing on the other side of the park with a grouchy face on.
You’ll finally get the Broomstick Graveyard, at which time, you can start the build. As a side note, if you ever get to a point where you aren’t sure what to do, always do the quest that is on the top in your quest log. And in a timed event, if you’re stuck and it won’t let you do anything or give you any quests, chances are that you simply have to wait until the next part is unlocked. I got a lot of questions about the Graveyard, but never fear, it is finally here.
It will cost you 20,000 tokens and will take 12 hours to build.
Once done, you can send the two lovebirds to go make sweet skeletal music atop its slopes
This is easily one of my favorite animations in the game. Not to mention that kid that just had to take a ride and ruin the moment.
But kid or no kid, these two were happy to sing about their love. Well, Jack was. I think Sally might have just spied that chest we weren’t able to find. Good job Sally!
This show of love has upset Oogie. He, after all, was trying to be the center of attention.
Taking credit for your bugs? No no, we were simply making out. Sally’s like, totally into me. Oh sorry, I was just channeling Teen Jack. Okay. The battle is afoot. With Jack and Sally full of loving embraces, they set out to take Oogie down. Before anyone asks (Queue 28 people asking in the comments) you do NOT NEED ZERO to complete this fight BUT he does help to make it go faster.
Each “round” that you send a character on will take 2 hours. That means that this round will take 8 hours total to complete.
This is a fantastic battle sequence. Jack runs the dice course, throwing an 8 ball at Oogie, which Zero barks menacingly and Sally unleashes hordes of bats. The only thing that’s missing is Sandy Claws yelling angrily in the background. While I usually play with no sound in the game as I play a lot on the subway to and from work, I turned up the sound to hear a fantastic battle theme here as well!
Stop scaring poor Zero!!
With the battle won, I found myself a bit disappointed that it didn’t seem very climactic. Boy, was I in for a treat. Or rather a trick. No sooner was Oogie dispatched than his bugs came back in force.
The bugs respawn at 10 every 2 minutes so this did not take long to dispatch all of them.
Battling Oogie Part 2
With his bugs gone, Oogie CAME BACK! Never before in DMK have we had a part two for a fight! I knew it had been too easy. It was time to jump back into the fray.
This time around, you’ll need to do quests to beat him 18 times. This time around, you’ll be looking at 12 hours to finally stop that dancing pile of sh…tuff? With the last quest complete, he’ll fall into his own track in a fiery explosion that cost a fortune from the VFX team.
Of course this wouldn’t be DMK if we didn’t let villains treat us badly, send spider after us and try to burn us alive just before we welcomed them to our kingdom with open arms.
Oh oh! Is the answer that it takes 3 weeks to get rid of and you don’t sleep for most of that time because you’re afraid you’ll run out of time?! Is that the answer Merlin? TELL US THE ANSWER. Ahem. Sorry. I’m a little tired.
Here are the unlock tokens for Oogie.
Coming in at even more than Sally, it seems Zurg will be doing what he does best, collecting pumpkins for me because all his other quests are useless at this point.
Sorry guys, but his Dice AND his hats are epic level. That being said, you only need 10 of each and several characters can collect them AND they don’t take a million years to do the quests. In fact, Zero can try for one of these every hour!
The hats will probably take the longest time to get, but even so, most of the quests come in around 4 hours and once again, Zero is a good bet. All in all, this seems much easier that Syndrome so far.
Alright everyone! You have your marching orders! Collect Oogie before the event ends. I for one will also be trying to finish up Donald’s costume His costume is not limited time but I would really like to have it before Halloween. It just seems right. Let me know how you are fairing in the comments!
