The Haunted Manor

Enter The Haunted Manor instance by speaking to the Harlequin Guide where you can obtain pumpkin cookies. You have to complete the quests of the imps in the manor to obtain the cookies as a reward. 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.
  • Arcane Circles: Four arcane circles are scattered all over the manor. All four players must stand on each one at the same time.ffxiv_19102016_185413
  • Pumpkin Hunt: Find and open all six pumpkins (pumpkin chest).
  • Light the Lanterns: Obtain Smoldering Coals and light four Jack o Lanterns.
  • Jack in the Box: Use the hints (which you can find in the Manor) to find and open two untrapped Pumpkin Chests. Opening a trapped chest will lower your sanity!
  • Coffercracker: Discover the combination and /say the numbers to the coffer. So far the one I played needed 5 numbers.
  • Cookie Hunt: Obtain a total of fifteen cookies. Bronze baskets have 1 cookie, silver baskets have 3 cookies, gold baskets have 5 cookies.
  • Other Info: Occasionally you will find an Obfuscation Charm. Use it to turn “invisible” for a few seconds so that you can just run past the imps and such. After completing the third task given by the Imp, you will complete the instance.ffxiv_19102016_190131
