Grand Chase - 10/21 Patch Notes

Halloween Extravaganza event has been added until November 3rd
Receive a Creepy Pumpkin Roll game board at first login
Creepy Pumpkin Roll is a board game within Grand Chase that is played by rolling two six-sided dice
One roll is earned for every hour of gameplay, up to a maximum of five rolls per day
Up to three additional rolls per day may be purchased from the shop
Prizes will be given based on the space your marker lands on
Try to get around the board as many times as you can for special prizes at the end!
The Park has been redecorated for Halloween
A cursed Jiang Shi lower armor accessory will be given as a timed 2-day item every day you log in during the event.
If you log in at least once each day for 10 days or more, the Jiang Shi will be yours to keep once the event ends!
Special brand new Halloween sets Jiang Shi and Zombie will be sold in the shop
The popular team PvP mode "Smashing Pumpkins" has been temporarily re-added during the event with special rewards to the victors.
The Kanavan Colosseum is open for BATTLE!
Kanavan Colosseum is a world premiere system of competitive PvP ranking that utilizes skill-based ratings similar to the "King of the Hill" tournament.
This feature may only be accessed from the Colosseum server, a special new server in which there is no shop, no dungeon, no chat, just BATTLE!
To enhance the competition and increase the pool of available competitiors, this server will only be open from 1 PM to 10 PM PST/PDT each day. However, during this open beta, the server will be available ALL THE TIME for testing, so get in there and BATTLE! (notice a recurring theme?)
To play, click the BATTLE! button; this will place you in a room with a randomly seleced opponent. You will not be able to see your opponent's character or stats.
All matches are fought on a random map with a format similar to tag match which requires players to select three characters (you can pick the same character multiple times though).
Ratings will be reset every week, with prizes given to the best gladiators and gladiatrices.
For this inaugural event, ratings will NOT be reset, so to recognize the achievement of being on top after TWO weeks, extra-special prizes have been arranged:
First Place:
Any 1 weapon (limited event weapons will be timed for 30 days).
Any 1 armor set (includes sets in the Shop, Gacha sets; limited sale sets will be timed for 30 days).
Any 1 accessory (includes accessories in the Shop, no longer available accessories, mission accessories; limited accessories will be timed for 30 days).
Any pet (includes pets in the Shop, Seal Breaker Gacha, Refer-a-Friend, and Gacha pets, including those no longer available, all permanent).
Second Place:
Black Champion Armor Set (30 Days)
Warrior Weapon (10 Days) [Based on your ranking character]
GC Club (7 Days)
Third Place:
White Champion Armor Set (30 Days)
Warrior Weapon (10 Days) [Based on your ranking character]
GC Club (7 Days)
4th~10th Place:
Warrior Weapon (10 Days) [Based on your ranking character]
GC Club (7 Days)
Please refer to the website for more details.
The Refer-a-Friend event has been re-added until November 3rd
Players who participated in the previous Refer-a-Friend event have had their referral records cleared and may participate again.
New and Returning Knights will have an option when logging in to name the friend who referred them.
A "Returning Knight" is any player who has not logged in since September 1st, 2009.
A "New Knight" is any account created during the event period.
Prizes will be given out upon login to new, returning, and existing knights.
The player who refers a new or returning Knight will receive prizes when that Knight performs an attendance check.
New and Returning Knights will also receive prizes for their first attendance check.
A player can refer up to 12 new or returning Knights, and will receive progressively better prizes for each one that performs an attendance check.
As an added bonus, friends receive a 30% bonus to XP and GP when playing on the same team in PvP or Dungeons for 45 days.
For a full explanation of the event, please visit the event page on the official website.
A new character, Sieghart the Gladiator is coming!
Sieghart NPCs have been added to the park to promote the new character's upcoming release!
Sieghart's Big Head (7 Days) will be distributed to all players on first login until October 27th

Creepy Pumpkin Roll Coins have been added during the event. Only three may be purchased per day.
The special level 55 Zombie armor set has been added for all characters until November 3rd.
The special level 25 Jiang Shi armor set has been added for all characters until November 3rd.

UPDATE: The following items have been moved to next week's patch, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
If every player in a full dungeon or PvP room types in "trick or treat" (all lower case) after readying up, EXP and GP will be doubled.
Inside dungeons, a mysterious witch will periodically fly overhead and drop pumpkin treats with power-ups inside!
Elven Forest and Outer Wall of Serdin PvP maps have been redecorated for Halloween
