Shadow of the Mad King 2012/Act 4
Mad King Thorn appears at the Grand Piazza in Lion's Arch and starts the Your Mad King says... dynamic event. At the end of this you will be transformed randomly for a Costume Brawl while Mad King Thorn starts walking around Lion's Arch, telling his questionably humorous jokes and a Magnificent Chest will appear at the Grand Piazza. Some time after the Mad King leaves a Haunted Door called Free candy! Yay! will appear at the Grand Piazza for a while. The Mad King will pop up just for a laugh and to transform you randomly again, at random intervals until the event starts all over again.
During the event, players have to follow what Mad King Thorn is asking them to do. Participating in the event for the first time will reward the player with a Witch's Hat, while subsequent participations will reward Trick-or-Treat Bags.
- Being in the Grand Piazza when the event ends without having participated in the event will result in being teleported into the Mystic Forge Cauldron located in Trader's Forum while the Mad King laughs at you.
- Act 4 also removed the Ascent to Madness dungeon that was introduced in Act 3.
