23 June to 14 July 2020
The Withering Blight
Due to unforeseen problems with the 3.3.0 Mid-Chapter Update, the Event was postponed until the 30th, meaning that the Event lasted from 30 October to 10 November 2019.
It kicked off the in-game celebrations in honour of Halloween 2019, albeit a bit late.
- 1 Overview
- 2 In-Game Changes
- 3 The Hallowed Catalyst Collection
- 4 Event Offering
- 5 The Lore
The Withering Blight is a Halloween-themed version of the Scorching Summer BBQ Event.
- Re-enabled the All Hallows' Eve Lunchbox Med-Kit.
- Re-enabled the Will O' Wisp Flashlight.
- Re-enabled the Pustula Petals Offering.
The Event Offering will increase the amount of Cankerous Hooks and Generators that spawn in the Trial Grounds and increase the Bonus Bloodpoints one receives from interacting with them. Not burning the Offering will still grant Bonus Bloodpoints, but fewer.
By completing challenges and progressing the Event-Rift in the Archives, Players will be rewarded with Putrid Serum , which can then be exchanged for cosmetics of either the older Hallowed Blight Collection or this year's Hallowed Catalyst Collection.
The Serum is available on the Free Track of The Rift and is capped at a maximum of 60, allowing for the purchase of 6 Cosmetic Pieces or up to 2 Outfits.
The Hallowed Catalyst Collection
|“||It is the season of night; a time of tricks and thrills. The Hallowed Blight infested the many Realms with putrid flowers whose nectar became the catalyst for horrific experiments. The Hallowed Catalyst Collection yields the morbid fruits of these experiments.||„|
The Nurse - Foul Nightingale
- This Outfit, while part of the Hallowed Catalyst Collection, can only be obtained from the Premium Track on The Rift.
The Hag - Scorched Harvester
The Clown - Seething Entertainer
The Spirit - Blazing Lineage
The Plague - Servant of the Serum
Jake Park - Vigo's Marauder
|Calls upon The Entity to generate 1 Cankerous Hook and 1 Cankerous Generator.

NOTE: During the Event, 1 default Cankerous Hook and 1 default Cankerous Generator will spawn on the Map.

"The Pustulas fill the air with a rancid odour that some may find enticing."
