    Is it just that there's more stuff to spend on, or am I getting far less candy this year?

      There's a ton of extra stuff to spend stuff on this year. It wasn't really our intention to let you get everything, it's stuff to work towards in the future and I expect our Winter event this year will be much the same. I believe giving people more options is nice because they can pick their own priorities of what is the coolest to them and that means we might end up seeing quite a bit of variety across the site for the next year. 

      Everyone who participated every day should have been able to earn over 1000 candy, which is enough for all 3 borders and a couple of extra things. The Little Devil Teemo stuff sitting at 666 candy was there as an "ultra-rare" fun thing to do and I would not have expected many people to go for it.

      So here's the Candy breakdown (Oozefest lasts 28 days):

      • 560 Candy from Trick or Treating
        • Everyone was able to visit 20 houses per day. (28x20)
      • 400 from Scavenger Hunt
        • 40 clues in total x 10 Candy each. (Last year we did 1 Candy per)
      • ~80 from Random Events
        • This one would definitely vary for folks but the very active people should have received around 80 Candy in total by the end of the event from just random events.
      • 140 from Daily Tasks
        • 5 Daily Tasks x 28 days.
      •  

      On Halloween, October 31, we ran a "Big Bar" event where all Candy gains were doubled on the site so it was like having a 29th day and I didn't include it in the calculations above. Also, folks who participated in our Card Design Competition received some Candy too.

      So that's 1180 with full completion every day.


      On Wordsearches

      Word searches rewarded gold instead of candy so there was some potential candy there but we didn't do it. The reason being is these word searches are available year-round but our candy purchases in the shop will not be so we can't really give out candy for them. And I think it would be unfair to change the currency rewarded after the events ends.


      Last year's Candy earning breakdown was:

      • 20 per day for passively browsing the site.
      • 64 clues that could be solved for 1 Candy each.
      • 2 daily tasks.

      The event ran from October 25 until November 3 which was 9 days of gains. 

      That was 180 Candy for browsing, 64 Candy for clues, and 18 Candy for daily tasks for a total of 262 Candy. (Borders were 75 Candy each or ~1/3 of your candy earned. Was about ~1/4 this time).


      Things We Could Have Done Better

      One of our biggest failures IMO was being more transparent about your progression. I would have loved to do a little "story line" showing the houses you visited throughout the day and how much more "energy" you had to visit more. I wanted to push something out for this during the event but stuff just gets too busy to reliably get stuff done. Maybe if Hearthstone hadn't of dropped that huge patch.

      I think we should have allowed for passive gains as well as the active gains through Trick or Treating. I think it was a very cool flavor thing to do and the possibility of increased community interaction was neat, but some folks who are more passive users on the site lost out since our random events although flavorful, didn't exactly bring in enough Candy. Balancing the two together would be a good idea for next year.

      Also, things should have started in October and stayed in October. Wasn't much we could do about that one, but I laugh a bit each time we push out a spooky-themed word search and its clearly November.


      Things I'd Love to Know

      • Did the event feel too grindy relative to previous events?
        • There was certainly more interaction required on everyone's behalf rather than the passive gains of last year.
      • Was there any aspect you felt could have been communicated better?
      • Was the event too long?
      • What sucked? What rocked?

      We'll do another post-event survey to collect feedback so I'm not too worried about being responding here (and if you do, please do our survey when we post it as well so feedback can be collected in a central location).

        Not for me :) 

        • Was there any aspect you felt could have been communicated better?

        Not realy, i think it was good!

        • Was the event too long?

        Nope, could be longer because i like those riddles and word searches :) :) 

        • What sucked? What rocked?

        Those riddles (even tough some of them are hard if you do not play certain games) were AWESOME! Love it and maybe you could implement riddles like that for new expansions or other events etc!

        There doesn't seem to be an easy way to keep track of your earnings during the event. I've been clicking on a few profiles under houses of interest and lights are on, maybe 3-5 a day. As for site travel, I'm not active much on the forums, but I do visit the site every day and read the Hearthstone news. So I'm missing out on a ton of trick-or-treat candy, but I find visiting that many profiles for just 1 candy each too time consuming.

        I've been buying all the Hearthstone related profile banners. I have all but 2 now. I'm not seeing anything on this page about when the event ends, so who knows how much candy we'll end up getting.

      Ok some hints in the order of riddle you posted

       

      Show Spoiler

      - Think of explosions…. BIG ONES!!

      -It's a card released in a recent expansion, he obviously likes metal and death(maybe)

      -She is either summoning a demon or just plain old people giberish

      - It's a reference to an older series of games, try diving into the water cards

      - Should probably look for someone who would bring ruin, sadly not the darkest dungeon narrator

      - Think of someone who always arrives too soon because they called him hours ahead.

      - Hang ten is a surf term, if you fail you might join the rest of the souls

      - We are currently on the second iteration of the event

    That last set of eggs hunting was spicier than before - took me a while, and many hints from the community - but tonight I solved the last remaining ones! As a reward, I had patiently waited to complete the word search; That was a good evening!

    Stuck on the cavalry one and the heavy metal. Looked at everything horseyish and spooky, and musical in recent expansions, but so far nothing.

      For the HS one there's a graphic look-a-like one that, for sure, you miss when seeing recent expansions and for the cavalry is hard to spot what they are referring to HIM as a cavalry if you don't know the character but adding some extra info to the already wrote hints on this thread I would said that

      Show Spoiler
      Both card you're looking for have the higher rarity of their respective games

        Wow. that cavalry card was unobvious, except for maybe the attack effect. Would never have gotten it without the tip. Thanks!

    For the lucky number 13 I think I found the card (3 of them) but seems like it didn't work at all. Are we speaking about a fear or what?

      This is someone who is obsessed with the number 13, not fears it.

      Edit: forgot to spoiler it.

          I just want to mention there's five versions of that card, and I had to click on three or four before I got credit for solving that clue.
