Age of Conan readies Night of Lost Souls event

Jef Reahard

Ready for Hyboria's version of Halloween? Funcom's take on traditional autumn MMORPG events is decidedly more John Carpenter than Robert E. Howard, but it's nevertheless a fair bit of fun. The annual Night of Lost Souls has proven a popular diversion with Age of Conan players over the last couple of years, and Funcom is bringing it back with a trio of quests and new reward items.

This year you'll be able to embark on two solo quests and a team quest, all designed to bring you face-to-face with three of Hyboria's gruesome lost souls. Speaking of faces, the new reward items include social items like a pictish weapon made of bone and a severed head, a gnarly skull armor helmet, and a spectral visage pet.

The blood-curdling festivities kick off on October 22nd and run through November 2nd. Log into Age of Conan and type /claim, then examine the resulting "partially-translated page" to kick off your first quest. You can also read more about the event on the official boards.
