Special event ghosts
Special event ghosts are ghosts that can only appear in one of the special event locations during a special event. These are not the only ghosts that can appear in special event locations. These are the ghosts that appear only in special event locations.
To see the other ghosts that can be captured in special event locations as well as other normal locations, please see the individual special event location pages: Castle McIngverson, Castle McIngverson nightmare mode, Castle McDoyle, Castle McMahon, McWallace winter residence, McDuff lighthouse and Winter wonderland.
You can sort this table by the contents of each column. To use a column as a sort criteria, please click on the little arrow in the heading box next to the name. Clicking on that arrow twice reverses the sort (from low-to-high to high-to-low).
If you want to sort the table based on two criteria, sort the primary column first and then sort the secondary column (without leaving the sorted view from the primary column). (This method is not foolproof, but it will give you the bulk of the information you are interested in first.)
Currently the locations sort in alphabetical order. We will in the future be adding code to allow those columns (region and location) to sort in the order players can encounter them,
The (first?) batch of Christmas stars were released at the beginning of Celebration week 8, 2016.
- Each of the Christmas star monsters in the Winter wonderland uses a different type of plasma and a different type of cauldron. Once you have acquired the loot from one of those monsters, change your cauldron type and put the appropriate new plasma into it.
Minimize midnight attraction
Make sure that you have the lowest possible midnight attraction stat in your setup when hunting the Special event ghosts: These are very much anti-midnight ghosts! (You may see the Special event ghosts during your midnight hour by chance, but there is no point in relying on that fact, since their occurrence is rare. On the other hand, if you have much of the midnight attraction stat in your setup, that will ensure that you see few or none of the stars.
If you own the spotlight special item, make sure that it is enabled
Most of the Special event ghosts can be attracted with bait that has low to medium-level attraction.
Plan to shift setups
The major factor to keep in mind when hunting the Special event ghosts is that you will need multiple setups to successfully trap the Special event ghosts.
At the North Pole
You will need setups that include:
)You need the light to attract a particular ghost, the mechanism type shown to catch it (or the appropriate companion modifier to help you catch ghosts that require that type of mechanism), and extinguish or thawing, as indicated, for ghosts that are either on fire or frozen.
You will also need a strong brute force setup
Planning for next year
If you've struggled with the Special event ghosts when they first appear, there are things you can do to strengthen your setup both generally and for futre Celebration weeks:
- Request S.C.O.T.C.H. badge gifts from other players regularly, and return the favor to those who ask you for help.
