for this year in order to get stave you have to give any TREAT OR SWEET to a "trick NPC"

Darksunx says he bought 15K in oranges to get his items. i bought a stack fo oranges for 1K, the NPCs wont accept them. Did you synth them into something else? everyone who posts is so vague. for once i wish some1 would write there findings so that someone else can understand what they did exactly.
I have the Pumpkin Head and the Trick Staff so far. i just stick to the strategy of one treat each day, and trade to a different NPC each time. I was wearing my pumpkin head when i got trick staff.

in the 2005 event you can only use the same kind of treat once per vana'diel day.

to get Pitchfork it looks like you get in a pt with someone and the two of you turn in to a Ghost and a skeleton and go under decorations till you get it.

for Pitchfork +1 you have to go to a dif nation than you got your pitchfork and find the person that gives the costume of the beastman that is the enemy of your nation (sandy-->orcs, windy-->yags, bastok-->quadav). If you wear your pitchfork while getting a costume from that person you will be turned in to a gob. Get in a pt and go under decorations as 2 gobs and you'll get the Pitchfork +1 (not all decorations work so you'll prolly have to run around).

How To Get Halloween Items
# Oct 28 2004 at 6:13 PM Rating: Excellent
It's a bit late, but I'm hoping this info can still help some. I finally figured out what I was doing wrong trying to get my items. You must equip, or not equip the items your given to get more. If you want Pumpkinhead I or II, or Trick staff I or II make sure you have no halloween gear equipped in your head or weapon slots. If you're wearing Pumpkinhead II, you will never recieve the first one. Instead you'll be given Horror Head II. What you want to wear is as follows...

To get:

Treat staff, wear the trick staff
Treat staff II, wear Trick staff II
Horror Head, wear Pumpkinhead
Horror Head II, wear Pumpkinhead II

Trick Staff - wear non halloween weapon or nothing
Trick Staff II - non halloween weapon/nothing
Pumpkinhead - non Halloween hat/nothing
Pumpkinhead II - non Halloween hat/nothing

Of course if you have the hat you want, but are still stuck on staves, you can equip either the Horror Head or Horror Head 2. They should stop giving you hats at that point, and only pass out Lanterns or staves. Same should work the other way, wear a Treat I or II staff and only get hats and lanterns.

It still takes some time to get them items knowing this, but it should work for everyone. I wasted 200k + trying to figure out my mistake on my main, and have gotten the items for at least 5 alts for less than 50k since figuring it out. I hope it's not too late for ppl to get this info and find their Halloween gear. Good luck to all~! ^-^

to get Treat staff wear Trick staff?

It does NOT work at all..

I've wasted over 50k on sweets running around for days trying to get the treat staff and I never EVER get it so this theory may have worked in 04 but it sure doesn't work this year.

About 1 hour 40 min after reading this post and
15k in Oranges i got the remaining 4 items i needed. (YAY ME 8/8) If some say that this isn't the only way it is done, then i would say it's still by far the fastest!

Also, i would like to add my findings. The last few items i collected were done by standing at 1 NPC till it paid off, even a "Jack-o-lantern". Soon as i got anything, i would move to another NPC that gave me a different costume. Before i made full circle of all costumes, i would obtain a rare/ex item.
Not saying only Yag costume NPCs give "Treat Staff II", but soon as NPC that give you a Yag costume pays off, dont do Yag costume again till you get one of your rare/ex items.

Anyways, helps pass time trading all those oranges if you have a plan. About 3 hours and 30k investment isn't to bad for 8 rare/ex's.
Thank you FrostAdora for you post, till i read it i thought i would have to wait till next year to get the rest of my items.

Still obtainable?

During the Harvest Festival, the activation requirements for certain items (such as the Trick Staff) will be adjusted. ^0^

It might suck, but you need it to get the Treat Staff, which does not suck.

As is the case with most Event quests in FFXI, you get a normal item first, then a +1 version which is neat.

Latent effect Warp

It would be nice to have one while coffer chest hunting.

This one does not have the warp latent effect. That's the Treat Staff, which was also a rare/ex halloween item.

Is there a hidden effect to this?
