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

Pumpkin Buffer is shattered by your assault!
The Pumpkin Buffer bursts open spraying treats.

Items dropped

Special Candy

(Note, when the Buffer spawned at the end of the Risks and Rewards patch in 2008, some of the candy got an expiring date of 30 days. This seems to be corrected when the next patch Seeds of Corruption went live, however items picked up since are non-stackable. Old Candy keeps it non-expiring and/or stackable properties.)




And there is the rare drop of the Festival Shirt with 3 Crafting Majors: AL 50, Major Alchemical Prowess, Major Cooking Prowess, Major Fletching Prowess (inscribed: "Festival Season 07" -- Crafter's Guild (though a shirt was found in 2008).
