Shadow's Eve is Trove's Halloween event that will be held from mid-late October to early November as an annual event. During this Holiday pumpkin patch lairs will be found throughout the Cursed Vale biome. Players will be able to farm pumpkins either by breaking them in the pumpkin patches or by crafting Pumpkin Seeds at the Gardening Bench (requires a skill of 250 to craft). With Pumpkins players can craft various event items at the Shadowy Station in the Hub.
Shadow's Eve contains many Halloween themed items, and was the debut of the Nightmare, Spookytime and Haunted Mystery Boxes. Mystery Boxes can be crafted at the Shadowy Station using Candy Corn (earned from Pumpkin Lairs, which can replace Lairs in any non-elemental world, as well as from defeating Todstrom, who can replace any Lair chests in the Cursed Vale) and can contain Shadow's Eve Recipes or Shadow's Eve Adventurer Chests as a common drop, one of two themed masks as an uncommon drop, and various event collectibles as rare drops. The store was stocked with a special Shadow's Eve mag rider, the Caskart. Autumn Pinatas were also added, which have a chance to drop the Autumn Pinata mount. The Autumn themed pinatas will also drop Candy Corn but only during the event.
During the year 2017, many more additions were added including the content from the past few years. A new pack will be available for players in the store called the Gourdzilla Pack. The contents of the pack are as followed: The Gourdzilla mount, Gloomy Gloaming stellar aura, and Hardened Headgourd helmet. Several items will be craftable at the Shadowy Station along with a new mount, the Mobile Mummy, and a Giant Pumpkin Pie which was a part of a new Golden Thread questline. A new craftable lootbox will also be introduced called the Haunted Mystery Box, which is very similar to that of the past Shadow's Eve lootboxes but with two new mounts, the Colossal Chiropteran and the Uncanny Coffin. Additionally, Todstrom was able to replace the chests granted by bosses in Lairs, defeating him being an additional source of Candy Corn.
The event lasted from October 24 to November 6.

These Jack-O-Lantern lairs act like normal quests, and their chests will contain 2 Candy Corn, which can be used to craft Nightmare Mystery Boxes for Shadow's Eve themed recipes, helmets, and the rare Samantha ally.
There is also the addition of a new Lootbox called the Shadow's Eve Adventurer Chest. This was released the week of the event and acts similar to normal Adventure Boxes whereas they are dropped uncommonly through adventuring.
