Darkness has once again befallen Ramsgate. As the city is plunged into eleven days of perpetual darkness this Dark Harvest, the Unseen have become bolder than ever before. This diabolical band of cultists has found a stronger foothold in the city and they are up to no good. What are their nefarious plans this year?

In a bold show of defiance and growing power, the Unseen have begun their skulduggery early this year. Since the start of October, cult members have begun placing ghoulish-looking Unseen Gifts in spots all over the city of Ramsgate.

Find these six hidden gifts and be rewarded with unique Unseen cosmetics when you complete the rumours from each gift.

For hints, look out for cryptic clues the cult has been issuing on Twitter.

Eerie Events

Eerie events abound during this time of persistent darkness. Explore Ramsgate for clues that will help you uncover more details about the Unseen’s unholy motivations and plans.

Mysterious Notes

Visit the sacrilegious Unseen ritual area behind Dr. Priyani’s abode to embark on quests and rumours outlined in the Mysterious Notes.

Completing these quests and rumours will unlock limited-time rewards, including access to a variety of Unseen cosmetics, a complete set of Unseen weapon skins, and a free event pass that grants you a full set of new Unseen armour skins on completion.

Harvest coins

Harvest coins are a limited-time currency you can earn and redeem during Dark Harvest.

Visit Honest Ozz to redeem these for new Dark Harvest items in the Event Store this year, including the Midnight Observer transformation, a new Unseen flare, and more.

Here’s how you can get a chance to earn Harvest coins during Dark Harvest:

  • Break parts on any Behemoth. (Umbral Behemoths will drop more.)
  • Destroy Shrowd effigies in the Hunting Grounds.
  • Complete the Unseen Summons event missions.

Unseen Summons

The Unseen have unleashed a Shrowd upon a nearby isle, infusing the Behemoth with the aetheric power of their mysterious umbral braziers. Every brazier that is alight increases the Shrowd’s damage and improves its defense, but also increases your reward when the Shrowd is defeated. If all eight braziers ignite, the Unseen ritual will be completed and the Shrowd will overwhelm your party!

Your mission is to defeat the Shrowd while preventing umbral braziers from being lit by the Unseen.

Be sure to unlock Slayer’s Path node IX (Edge of the Isles) to gain access to the Unseen Summons event in the “Event” tab of the hunt screen.

Spooky Style

Celebrate Dark Harvest in style with a plethora of spooky gear cosmetics, curiosities, and other items from the store. Be sure to check out new items like the Debt Collector axe skin, Harbinger glider skin, Grinning Phantom lantern skin, and more.

These items will only be available until November 1, so get them before time runs out.

The Dark Harvest Finale

As Dark Harvest draws to a close, a frightful faction of the Unseen has arisen. The “Bloodshot” Unseen are an overzealous and deadly group of Unseen cultists who vow to “get the job done, at any cost.”

With their Unseen Summons ritual complete, this faction has managed to summon a new dire Behemoth to the Shattered Isles. Keep your eyes peeled for the Bloodshot Shrowd on October 28 in 1.8.1 — it arrives as part of a brand new Island Event.

Battle this bloodthirsty beast and you may discover clue drops for a new rumour that will unlock the Shadow Scythe axe skin.
