My favorite time in MMOs: Halloween

Jack O Lantern ArcheAge

I’m not a big MMO gamer. I played a bunch of ArcheAge and loved it, and I have played a few free ones on console like Neverwinter. I played Final Fantasy XIV on my PC for a while, but when I tried to activate the same account to play on PlayStation 4 instead, it said my birth date was wrong. I recently started over at what I consider the best time of the year in MMO games, Halloween!  I love Halloween more every year in general, partly because more stores such as Target are supplying the gothic style decor I want. I also love the Disney Haunted mansion ride if that frames this better.

Back to ArcheAge, the first MMO I really dug into.  I have a fond memory of decorating the house Shawn and I had with our friend MinKyung.  I thought I had photos of that, but I only found one.  I did get very nostalgic looking through all the posts on my tumblr though.  Good times.

Decorating with Minkyung

I got on this kick recently when I got an email about all the Final Fantasy XIV Halloween stuff on sale.  This may all be last year’s stuff but it’s new to me.  Strongly considering that broomstick mount and maybe the outfit with the bent tip witch’s hat.

    Definitely Halloween in MMOs. That and Christmas. FFXIV has the best Halloween decorations out of any of the other MMOs I’ve played, so you’re in for a treat. Typically any items you weren’t able to get from the previous year’s holiday will be available for purchase through the mogstation, but I recommend doing all available quests for the rewards even if you don’t really want/need the rewards juuuust in case. Because once it’s gone, you’ll have to wait a whole year and then fork out real money for it. Boo.

    We’ll do another article soon about decorating our house for Halloween, I’m sure 🙂

    • I have yet to see any Halloween stuff around or quests for it. I think I need to buy an expansion to be able to get that broomstick though.
