For the instance, you can sign up with one to four people and the duty finder will fill in any vacant spots. There is no class limit or requirement because it is not a battle instance. You will get any three of the following quests. Note: There is a Sanity Meter. It is depleted when you are spotted by one of the minions.

  • Skinchanger: Use smokebomb on pumpkins (Suspicious Pumpkin) to revealed the transformed imp. Even just one player will do. If the chest glows blue, that is the imp. Click it.
