Contest of Liars!

By Nitocris | Mon 17 Oct 2022 07:00:00 AM PDT

Greetings Adventurers,

The time has come, once again, for the most fiendish of creatures to invade the Enclave - bringing with them a celebration of deception, lies, and a little competition. This year, 3 factions are once again vying for your attention, each with their own agenda and rewards!

The Contest of Liars will take place throughout the Masquerade of Liars event – October 21 to November 4! 

The fifth annual Contest of Liars begins this week and we have a feeling it will be absolutely frightful! “What is the Contest of Liars?” you ask. Well, it is a race for treats like none you have ever seen before. 

Participation in this contest is simple:

Step 1 - choose a team
Step 2 - gather some tasty treats from all over the sword coast
Step 3 - profit.



NOTE: Starting this year, Teams are no longer split on platforms based on prior years winning teams. Each year the oldest team will be removed and a new team introduced.

This year’s new team is the Clan of the Fallen, led by Felseah the Artful. They will be joined by the Madcap Mashers, led by D’Mond Ichor and Toil & Trouble, led by Witchy Wanda. All three teams can now be found in the main event dais in Protector’s Enclave.

Note: Team choice is account-wide. Once you've chosen a team on one character, that choice extends to all other characters on that account.


Now that you have a team, the next step is pretty straightforward. Complete daily quests and add to your team’s stockpile of treats. When the contest ends, the team that has gathered the most treats wins the contest. Any members of that team, who have contributed the minimum amount, will qualify for a free gift and additional bonuses. 

The minimum required contribution can be tracked on the UI in the event tracker. This value is account wide so you can participate with any number of characters. The tallies for each team are hidden and the winner will not be revealed until the last day.

The daily tasks available for each team ask you to gather a variety of different treats in 2 ways. First, you must visit all of our hub areas and seek out Spectral Tricksters. While wearing your team’s mask you must ask them for a trick or a treat and hope that they are in a treat giving mood, because the tricks can be rather ghoulish.


The second task involves acquiring treats from the corpses of the enemies you defeat. This must also be done with the mask equipped. A word of warning: The mask uses the head slot so you must be extra careful when doing this kind of trick or treating.



So after all this work, what nifty prizes will be available? Unlike previous years, the winning team’s illusion mask will not be awarded directly. Instead, a Masquerade Veil Choice Pack containing masks of the three active teams for that year will be available at the event vendor to claim by members of the winning team. Players not on the winning team will receive a Consolation Prize, which includes 200 Masquerade Tokens and will be able to purchase the Mask of the Fallen for 1200 tokens.

Note: A prior version of this blog incorrectly indicated that the Masquerade Veil Choice Pack would be available for purchase by players who were not part of the winning team. We apologize for the confusion this error caused and we hope to have past team masks available in the Zen Market in future runs of the event. 

New this year with Clan of the Fallen is the Mask of the Fallen. Masquerade events and rewards will also be active – you can read up on those here!

We hope that you have a terrifyingly wonderful time during this year’s Contest of Liars! Which team will you choose?
