The Masquerade of Liars
Go to PE (Protectors Enclave)
Visit the Masquerade Master to collect quests.
Secret and lies: go to the Moonstone Mask, speak to the Masquerade Loremaster, and go back to PE to hand in the quest.
The contest master is a red ghost under the big tree, the Tree of Elemental Balance, in Protectors Enclave. The Cloaks Alliance is choosing the Knotty Roots so talk to Tom Thorn (aka Groot within the Alliance). You will receive a mask you have to wear as you talk to other ghosts (see the Daily ghost Quests section below). If you’re running Tom Thorn’s quests on a second character choose the option that says ‘I need a mask’.
Trade of treats: trade 5 Liar’s Charms with the masquerade illusionists in PE to receive Illusionist’s Bags, hand in the quest and then get Gathering lies quest that asks you do collect a Liar’s Charm outside of PE.
Note: the Secret and Lies quest, and the Trade of Treats and Gathering lies quests, are daily, but you only need to talk to the contest master once when you begin doing Masquerade activities.
Daily ghost quests
Make sure you have the mask on. Found in PE, Caer Konig, Port Nyanzaru, and Mantol Derith. Ghosts are big or small, red or blue/white. Be warned! Some give treats some transport you as a trick.
Daily Tasty Treats – make sure you are wearing the mask. This is a slow going daily quest and drop every 10-20 things you kill in areas 7 levels of yourself. It gives the same reward as the ghosts which is a bag of illusionist goods. Recommendation is not to stress if you don’t complete it.
Getting Masquerade tokens: Collect the pumpkins and trade them for Bags of Illusionist Goods. The bags will have the tokens and drop the occasional Beholder Piñata. They also drop the Illusionist Mask artifact and the Mask of Veils and Mask of Shadows which are needed to refine the Illusionist Mask artifact.
Illusionist Mask Artifact: There are two versions of this artifact. The first is the same mask you’ve received every year for the Masquerade. You have to fully level this version of the Mask to buy the Empowered version of the Mask, which makes a full artifact giving 1,000 Power and Recovery and 600 AP gain. As with each year, the first version of the Mask requires refining items that can only be received during the Masquerade by doing the daily quests for the Masquerade Master.
Artifact Progression Tip: When the first mask you level up is still blue, you can buy the Memento of Leira and Mask re-agents needed for the artifact mask from the masquerade store for Masks of Veil and Shadows (which drop from Illusionist Bags). Once you upgrade the Mask to purple, however, you can only get Mementos of Leira and Mask as a reward from the daily quests you do for the Masquerade Master.
Getting the Enchanted Broom: (bind on pickup to account, bind on equip to character)
- You need 200 liar charms to buy the knotty wood;
- You need to open Beholder Piñatas that drop the Enchanted witch’s sash (1), as well as;
- Twenty five (25) enchanted bristles (25) which drop from Illusionist’s Bags;
- Once you get all the parts and have 50k AD, you can purchase the broom from the store. As noted, the Broom is bind to Account until a character equips the mount.
Other goodies: Dyes, potions, Masks, Fashion and Companions as Splinters. Note, the Splinter broom companion can be great for new players given the three offensive slots and three ring slots.
