Pumpkin Buffer

Introduced during the Tricks and Treats event in October 2005.

Was originally located only in Glenden Wood, however, during the Dance of the Dead event, a Pumpkin Buffer can also be found in Sanamar, Holtburg, Shoushi, and Yaraq.

Some rewards include Candy Corn, Gummy Ghouls, Gummy Golems, Chocolate Gromnies, Licorice Rats, Rock Candy Knaths, Caramel Kukuurs, Floating Candles and a Festival Shirt.

Originally, the Pumpkin Buffer casted level II spells. Nowadays, he buffs randomly beneficial level 7 spells.

Lore & Dialogue

The Pumpkin Buffer bursts open spraying treats.

Items dropped

(Note, when the Buffer spawned at the end of the Risks and Rewards patch in 2008, some of the candy got an expiring dateof 30 days. However, this seems to be corrected when the next patch Seeds of Corruption went live.)
