In order to save his Realm from the incoming hordes of adventurers, Oryx must create a horde of his own. With this purpose in mind he turns to Skuld, who has taken the souls of brave departed heroes and corrupted them to fight for the Mad God. For years, Skuld has been slowly building an army, and this Halloween he will finally be ready to release his creations into the world. Will you be ready to fend off legions of the undead? Or will you be the next to join their ranks? (Official Announcement)
The Zombie Horde Halloween event during which a large amount of zombies spawn, which can happen a few times per realm. The zombies spawn at a seemingly random location on the map - as sometimes they end up as far as the beach or as far into the realm as the Godlands. Watch out for Oryx threatening to send his ‘zombie horde’ to know when the horde is coming.
As of Release 27.7.X7 (Halloween 2016), the Zombie Horde spawned in realms again as an event that appears usually once or twice a realm. Also, it has a new boss, Bonegrind the Undead Butcher.
Zombie Samurai began arising from the Horde in Halloween 2018.
The drops from each zombie include all T11 Halloween reskin weapons, Candy Corn, and the Infected skin. The soulbound threshold seems quite low. The zombies that the Zombie Horde spawns are exactly the same as when a player with Cursed Amulet of Zombification dies (note that this does not happen anymore and the item is now the Amulet of Dispersion).
|Halloween Reskin T11 Weapons|
|Corrupted Cleaver||Staff of Horrific Knowledge|
|Dagger of the Terrible Talon||Skull-splitter Sword|
|Wand of Ancient Terror||Bow of Nightmares|
Bring piercing weapons to hit the boss and to get soulbound on more enemies. High DPS is always encouraged because often these zombies die as soon as you turn your fire upon them nowadays.
