DETAILS:  MU ONLINE is teaming up with various MMO sites to host a spooktacular Trick or Treat Event for All Hallow’s Eve, otherwise known to mere mortals as “Halloween.” Starting October 18, players can visit WEBZEN’s media partners to receive a special treat – a candy code that will unlock in-game rewards. Citizens of MU can trick-or-treat at different sites in order to collect all five candy codes (Chocolate, Lollipop, Bubblegum, Jawbreaker and Taffy). Once they’ve gathered all five sweets, they can redeem them for FREE in-game items by visiting the MU ONLINE Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MUWEBZEN. (Only one set of rewards per account.

START DATE: October 23, 2013 after maintenance (GST)

END DATE: November 6, 2013 before maintenance (GST)

DETAILS:  Blood-thirsty monsters lurk the dark corners of MU during the month of October. Those who are courageous enough to defeat two of the game’s frightening creatures (the WereRabbit and Fire Flame Ghost) will be rewarded with Jewels, Zen or Excellent Grade items. In addition, players can hunt any monsters that are Level 68 and above to collect pumpkins. These ghoulish gourds can be redeemed for scrolls, sustenance or a rare transformation ring that will change their characters into the hellish Jack-O-Lantern Monster. Track down these elusive creatures before they vanish into the night on November 6!
