HALLOWEEN FAQ Sheet

Well hello there all you Keymasters and Gatekeepers. Figured you will have a LOT of questions for this event. As usual. So I am putting the general FAQs in a nice lil tidy spot right here for you. Something to keep you tied over until all the details are confirmed in the Live Game. 😉

Ghostbusters icon

Here is the breakdown of the basics. We will go into each one in a LOT more detail in separate posts. So keep an eye out for them. So let’s jump into the FAQ’s from TinyCo…

 

WHAT LEVEL DO I NEED TO BE ON TO START THE GHOSTBUSTERS: QUAHOG HALLOWEEN EVENT?
You need to be up to date to Version 1.3 in your app market. You also need to have District 3 Completed.

 

WHAT IS THE START DATE FOR THE GHOSTBUSTERS: QUAHOG HALLOWEEN EVENT?
October 2nd, 2014

 

WHAT IS THE END DATE FOR THE GHOSTBUSTERS: QUAHOG HALLOWEEN EVENT?
November 7th, 2014 (You can view this information by tapping on the Witch’s Cauldron.

Portal

WHAT IS THE HALLOWEEN PORTAL? 
The Portal opens up into Quahog and demonic creatures spill out of it. You can use the Portal to earn Fright Points. Fright Points will increase your Fright Level. Fright Levels are an Upgrade to the Portal you can do each week to unlock lots of cool new Halloween Content as well as new kinds of ghosts to clear. Ghosts are good, they will drop items you need to progress this event.

Fright Point

HOW DO I GET FRIGHT POINTS? 
You can get Fright Points by completing actions, brewing prizes, collecting rent from the Ghostbusters Headquarters, or placing Halloween Decorations. You need the points to also Updgrade to new Fright Levels.

Spirit Vial

HOW DO I GET SPIRIT VIALS? 
In order to get Halloween prizes and unlock Ghostbuster Peter, you will need Spirit Vials. To get them, you will need to clear the ghosts taking over your Quahog. Each one cleared is a possible chance at the Spirit Vials. Just tap on the ghosts to clear them and watch for a Spirit Vial to drop.

There will also be the option to get Spirit Vials from actions, collecting rent from Ghostbusters Headquarters, and the Spirit Dispensaries (Spirit Vial Machine, Spirit Vial Wagon, and Spirit Vial Cart.)

Ghosts 2

WHAT IS THE SPAWN RATE FOR THE GHOSTS?
Locate the Portal and look for the “NEW GHOSTS TIMER” at the bottom. It will show you when the next ghost will spawn in YOUR town. Of course there will also be an option to speed up this process to instantly if you are willing to part with some Clams. (The Spawn Rate is still a work in progress so it will vary right now, but MORE Ghosts is a good thing. Lol.) You can have a total of 12 Ghosts in your town at one time. This rate will increase later on with your Soul Level.

 

WHAT ITEMS WILL THE GHOSTS DROP? 
You will either get Spirit Vials or Eggs. (And an occasional Clam.)

Witch's Cauldron

HOW DO I GET HALLOWEEN PRIZES FROM THE WITCHES CAULDRON?
Each prize will need to be brewed and brewed separately. You will require items to make the brew. These may include Spirit Vials, Terror Dog Bones, or Banshee Tears. Which can be earned by clearing the Terror Dogs.

If you REALLY like a Halloween item and want another, you can collect more items and brew that prize multiple times.

Terror Dog 1

HOW DO I CLEAR THE TERROR DOGS?
In order to get rid of the Terror Dogs, you will FIRST need to have created the Ghostbuster Peter Costume and have it unlocked. After that, you can then clear Terror Dogs as so…

*Tap on a Terror Dog

*Start Ghostbuster Peter on the task to “Zap Terror Dogs”

 

HOW OFTEN DO THE TERROR DOGS SPAWN? 
Much like the ghosts, just tap on the Portal and it will let you know when the next Terror Dog will arrive in YOUR town. (They start appearing the moment the Haunted House is repaired, just can’t tap til Peter is done.) 6 Terror Dogs MAX can be in your town at a time. This will increase later with your Soul Level.

Ghostbuster Peter 1

HOW DO I GET GHOSTBUSTER PETER?
In order to unlock Ghostbuster Peter, you need to start the Halloween event. Once you get to the questline for “I AIN’T AFRAID OF NO GHOST” Part 4, you will start to get the ability to earn items needed to unlock Ghostbuster Peter

Spirit Vial500 Spirt Vials : Actions, Ghosts, Dispensaries

Ghost Duster15 Ghost Dusters (Uncommon): Quagmire, Peter, Jerome, and Macabre Curiosities

Eggs15 Fried Eggs (Rare): Gray Ghosts, BoopityBop’s Joke Shop

Psychic Cards10 Psychic Cards (Rare): Chris, Bruce, Bonnie, and Madame Google’s Fortunes

You have until the end of the Halloween Event to unlock Ghostbuster Peter. As long as he is complete and walking around your town before the event ends, you get to keep him. If you are still collecting items by the end of the event, you will lose him.

Ghost Diane

HOW DO I GET DIANE SIMMONS?
In order to unlock Diane, you need to get to the questline “HELL HATH NO FURY” Part 1. At that point you will then start digging up Diane Simmons. Once you repair her gravestone, you will seven days live in game it shows five days to unlock her. Once unlocked and in the game, she is yours to keep. If the time expires before you unlock her, she will disappear from the game and will not return. You have til end of event to do this. (SIDE NOTE: If you have started to dig her up…DO NOT tap the check mark til you are ready to start collecting for her. Once that Headstone is repaired the timer starts.)

To unlock her you will need to Brew the Electricity Ball and Chomps the Zombie in the Witch’s Cauldron. This will require a total of 400 Spirit Vials and 30 Terror Dog Bones. So you may want to get the Terror Dogs Spawning and some Vials stocked up before you repair her tombstone and start the timer. (SIDE NOTE: If you start collection on the items BEFORE digging her up, they will still count towards her. So you can have them brewed already and then dig her up to get her fast.)

A Thank You to TinyCo for listening. They added a lil info to Diane’s grave pop up now when you tap it. Things like this is why I adore them as a company. Listening to their players concerns (and Addicts pestering them. Lol).

Slimer

HOW DO I GET SLIMER? 
Slimer is Exclusive to Android Devices, so in order to see him you will need to be playing on an Android Device. He will appear shortly after “I AIN’T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS” Part.  A pop up will appear in the game when he spawns, so you gotta watch for it so you can take him out quickly. He appears every 8 hours for only 2 mins at a time.

FYI…he is NOT a character. He is more like …another ghost. Just something to zap so far. Will update if it changes. For now, that is it.

Screenshot_2014-10-04-19-05-34-1

This is what he looks like in town. He does blend into the greenery, so keep an eye out. Also, just like characters, he sticks to roads so those hidden ones won’t be of any use to you if he is back there.

Slimer in Quahog 1 Slimer in Quahog

 

We are also seeing a glitch that speeds you through the 3 Slimer’s task. It has been reported. No worries, he will still spawn.

 

Just like in EVERY Event so far…. STOP… BREATH…DON’T PANIC!!! TinyCo and many many others put a lot of time and effort into this one. So don’t kill the event mood before it even starts. Don’t rush. Keep an eye on here for helpful hints. Wait to spend Clams til you have all the details and/or can make a confident decision. Above all… HAVE FUN!!! (Or I may send Stay Puft and Gozer the Gozerian after YOU! 😉 )

So there you have it. All the basics in a nutshell. What do you think of it all? Lots of excitement? Let us know.

Happy Haunting.

        • Similar to the Terror Dogs, a few will come out to “introduce” you to the new character, but you still need to complete unlocking Quagmire to get them to respawn and keep coming out of the portal. 😉

  9. Does anyone know the exact drop rate for spirit vials from ghosts? Also, has it changed since the start of the event? During the first week, every ghost dropped either spirit vials or occasionally bones, now most of my ghosts drop nothing, but also seem to drop clams and bones more often. I really need more spirit vials, but I seem to never get them from grey ghosts now. Did they make it so they only drop from characters/buildings and Terror Dogs/Banshees? This is getting frustrating since I can’t afford the spirit vial machines, and I need a sh!tload of vials for Ghostbuster Quagmire. Any help?

    Like

    • In order to NOT mess with other drops…the drops are still pretty close to same, it is just once you no longer need or get the other items…there is kinda a blank space…so it may give the illusion of less drops. We had them check into it too and verify. They were looking into it and by last reports they should be dropping as set.

  14. A little confused here, I accidentally clicked on Diane before I got GB Peter, but I got the bones I needed for the first bubble anyway. Now it says I need 3 banshee tears to get the last thing to unlock her, but those are not available yet. Her timer runs out for me in a little over a day, so this basically means I either need to spend the money to get 200 clams or I won’t be getting her?

  17. Not sure if this was answered somewhere else, but is there any significance to the items in my storage that have a “Halloween” info button and those that are regular? Since most of the Halloween items are from previous events, I can’t make rhyme or reason. For instance, the Nailgunner and Tri-Cycle are both Halloween, but the Fabu-bus and Fabu-jet are not.

    Will placing these Halloween items lead to any type of benefit?

      • So my question – do we keep having Peter zap the terror dogs and continue collecting the bones? I am wondering if I should stop collecting the bones and save up the dogs if they convert their drops to banshee tears or if the tears will come from a different portal character. At this point, we don’t know if we will need more terror bones down the road I suppose?

  28. I have a suggestion for those diehard people who accidentally dug up Dianne’s grave without Ghostbusters Peter. I did the same thing, but I have a plan to get her. Basically I dug her up and it took me a day to get Ghostbuster Peter. (This is with waking up in the middle of the night for psychic cards. Lol). What you do once you get Ghosterbuster peter is keep clearing the dogs and set (opinional) timers for two hours (even in the night) every time you clear a terror dog. This strategy is helping me a lot for getting Dianne and now I have a pretty good chance of getting her with about three and a half days left and 6/30 bones. Just a suggestion 🙂

  30. Im not sure if anyone else has said this but to rush Diane is 400 clams. 200 per decoration, regardless of bones or ghost vials. If you plan on rushing just one decoration do the zombie as they are more expensive than the electricity ball. I wonder if the graves are like flag poles, and might get other characters. Mutual would be good but the funniest would be Natalie with a quest for Quagmire to avoid her and try hide her from his friends.

The other one clearly says Save Diane in 5 Days? But I want to make sure that the first one doesn’t trigger the 2nd automatically since I have just started zapping terror dogs. Also I just got Mayor West and I’m on Mayor Runs the Town Pt 2. It’s a 24 hr task. I completely forgot to clear the Dawgs. (I’m so used to seeing them now). Should there have been a prompt from West or Stewie to start this? Thanks for all your help. You galso are great.

I remember I always talk crap about tinyco and how they make everything so expensive when I first start out the game but over time bunny, Alissa and tinyco really made me change my mind about them. They are a great company and they do listen to us unlike most others. Actually I don’t think any games ever try to fix my problem when I ask except for tinyco. Just like that little side note that they put on Dianne to warn people tells me the r listening to us. Well I give most of that credit to the addicts, and tinyco really have my respect now. So thank u girls.
