Overview

During this event, Heroes could 'Trick or Treat' by clicking on doors in the various zones. Either a treat was awarded in the form of a random inspiration or a trick would spawn various enemies, who came out of the door. Eochai could also be found throughout Paragon City in different levels according to the zones. Eochai was of Monster rank; the Giant Monster rank had yet to be implemented.

Temporary Powers

One of the treats was the Rock temporary power. It is a one use, ranged attack that does minor smashing damage. Matt Miller was the developer behind this homage to It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. [1]
