Purple shiny

A purple shiny!

Starting the Collection

Most Collection Quests begin by examining any of the members of that collection, which are harvested from special, random ground spawning nodes using the Collecting harvesting skill. Members of this collection can be found as follows:

  • Special Purple: Purple shiny sparkles named ?, only found visible to all during Nights of the Dead.

Collection Members

  • Aura of Foreboding(Freeport/Qeynos)
  • Cadaverous Breath (Freeport/Qeynos)
  • Sudden Fright (Village of Somborn/Nektulos Forest)
  • Spine Tingle (Village of Somborn/Nektulos Forest)
  • Growing Suspense (Neriak/Kelethin)
  • Undying Ardor (Neriak/Kelethin)
  • Overwhelming Terror (Gorowyn/New Halas/Maj'dul)
  • Essence of Putrescence (Gorowyn/New Halas/Maj'dul)


Special Notes

Picking up these shinies will yield either a Nights of the Dead Treat or a collectible.

  • Excess candy treats can be exchanged for Candy Corn (which creates a single stack in your inventory) by visiting Grabby Gigglegibber. The treats are both a currency that can be spent at the NotD merchants or used to craft NotD items.
  • The shinies for this collection are found only around the event NPCs.
  • You may need to visit each city for your character's alignment to get all of the collectibles and the Village of Somborn (needs to be verified).
