— In-game description

Candy-Powered Matter Meter is a device used during Act 1, and Act 2 of Halloween 2012 to locate the stories of the Mad Memoires, and Mad Memoires: Complete Edition. Using the device consumes a Piece of Candy Corn and will give you a bundle that functions similar to a Conjure, with a unique set of skills.


Talking to Magister Tassi in Lion's Arch during Halloween 2012 and telling her you're ready would result in the following mail:


Magister Tassi

Your Very Own Candy-Powered Matter Meter

Using a kernel as a focus, you can scan four different frequencies: aqueous, gaseous, etheric, and corporeal. There are suspicious locations on all four frequencies, and it's up to you to discover them.

Try it with the little ghost standing right next to me. She's hiding behind an etheric veil, so use the etheric frequency!

You'll notice, on your journey, that each page from the Mad King's past contains clues on how to proceed. Pay close attention to these clues, for they are the only way you will piece together the past and complete our volume of the Mad Memoires.

We're missing six stories. Now get moving! We only have so long before the energies of the Mad Realm vanish again!

You will gain a Uses Remaining effect lasting 60 minutes with 4 charges. Using any of the scan skills will send out a sonar pulse and reveal Suspicious Locations if they are close by. As you only have 4 charges, you can use each scan once before losing the bundle.
