The Spooky Festival is an event that takes place from Autumn 29-31 (in-game time) and lasts for 1 hour (real life time), during which every monster will have a chance to drop either Green or Purple Candy. In real life, the time between Spooky festivals is 5 days and 4 hours.
All Mobs have a 10% chance to drop Green Candy when killed during a Spooky Festival. The chance can be increased with certain items. Green Candy has a chance to be converted into Purple Candy when it drops from a mob, which is calculated with this formula:
Spooky Mobs only appear in the night time during the Spooky Festival in certain areas such as the Graveyard. They drop Candy and other drops related to the festival (like Ectoplasm). There are 6 Spooky Mobs. These mobs only take one damage per hit on normal circumstances, although they have a very small amount of Health. To be more efficient, it is recommended to use a weapon with high Bonus Attack Speed like the Livid Dagger or to reforge your weapon to fast. Another option is to use the Ghoul Buster as it deals +100% Damage to Spooky Mobs. The best pet to use for the Spooky Mobs is the Bat Pet.
While the Spooky Festival only occurs from Autumn 29-31, The Fear Mongerer NPC and his shop will be available for three hours. They will arrive one hour before the event begins and depart one hour after the event ends.
The Headless Horseman is a boss related to the Spooky Festival. Spawning it requires the Horseman's Candle to be bought from the Fear Mongerer during the event, but it can be used at any time (during the night hours).
