Don't believe it is released. There is very little knowledge on the wikis as to how to obtain it, and its not currently part of any hand out, sooooo....good question

Could not finish the Lara daily yesterday, because only 2 candys dropped out of mobs (bad RNG).
Today I got a second cookie and the items don't stack, they are eating up 2 inventory spaces.

Is there a failsafe? For example exchanging 2 cookies and 6 candys, when RNG is better on the next day?

Or is the limitation fixed, that only 1 cookie and 3 candys can be exchanged through the daily on each day?
That would be really bad..

Because when players can't finish the Lara daily because of bad RNG, the second cookie would be complete useless.
You could basically throw it away, because it only eats up inventory space..

A GM clarification would be nice.

Actually it does matter. It matters a lot. You need to fill out your knowledge wheel. You can do the halloween quest because you dont have knowledge of Lara NPC.....you need to talk to Bobby Lauren first, and get his knowledge (he may require you to get knowledge from someone else first.

I think there must be some other requirement too.

I've only been playing for a week, so I'd never even been to Heidel before. On getting there though, I just needed to talk to Bobby Lauren to unlock Lara (didn't even need to accept his quest) but she doesn't offer the Candies for Children quest.

Please increase the drop rate of the candies. 

If anybody wants to participate in the event, there should be a fair enough chance for everyone to get a gift box every day. What you get in the box is the fun part so I won't mind the rate of the box itself. 

3-4 hours of grinding and 1-2 candies is too ridiculous. As someone already have mentioned, you are locked with one box per day due to one cookie per day through challenge. Also, Lara gives out only candy basket anyway. 

I would really appreciate Kakao to consider the fact that this is an event and also you guys already have set the chance of getting boss item from gift boxes to be so low. i do not see the reason why not giving everyone a fair enough chance to get a gift box. 

Please increase the drop rate!

ps. I do honor those who spent long enough of their time to participate in the event. However, this is an event. Shorter time to grind for candies applies to everyone. You can spend more time on other significant matters you have in your hand if drop rate increases. 1-2 hours of grinding can assure that I can get at least three candies? That I can spare and I will do it gladly.

Yeah drop rate of candies is total bollocks.  Had to kill 900 mobs to get 3 and I'm sure it's only going to get worse on less lucky days

(exact amount known b/c I still had Many of Mickle quests queued up counting them for me)

 

pretty sure this is a you problem, yep nobody but you is at fault for owning a subpar computer and still deciding to spend time playing BDO.

trust me on this one.

It's not a sub Par PC if it runs 60FPS everywhere else but Heidel.  This is LITERALLY THE LIMITATIONS OF AN SSD harddrive and RAM bussing.  And I guarantee I know more about Optimization than you do.  The game's own engine just wasn't designed to have this many people crowded into a single STREET.

Hitching is not solely the domain of your CPU and it definitely has nothing to do with Graphic Cards.  It's a flaw in the game Resource optimization & loading / Scaling   (and also of course, it still being 32 bit device/OS & DirectX_9.0 compatible instead of 100% 64bit)

no reason to eat those 8 candy, save them, it just means you already have your 3 for the next basket.

no, you have to get the basket from Lara

you have stumped me, good job. Have you tried doing a recheck on your client? Something else is wrong here as everyone else who gained Lara's knowledge got their quest. Did you try relog? Or perhaps maybe try doing her amity quests?

Also have the other Halloween quests showed up for you?

i know that most MMOs come with a GM command to increase drop rate server wide, but its not limited to any particular item or event, just drop rate in general. But with BDOs RNG setup, it is unknown if that type of command is included in BDOs admin console.

All I can suggest for you is to try farming other areas. Find mobs that are in high groupings that die fairly easy....the faster you kill the higher chance of dropping something from the loot table

I've logged in and out a few times in the last couple of days, but still no quest.

I have a quest to turn in to her later on, so will check again.

All I can think is that there is some kind of level restriction, as I've only been playing for a short time. I guess most players are usually higher level by the time they reach Heidel.

i don't believe there is a level restriction, but there may be a quest or knowledge restriction......I know when I hit Heidel, first thing I did was gain knowledge on all the NPCs and complete all the non daily & life skill quests ....I may have been level 20 to 30 can't remember

If Catfish area is not crowded enough, please let me know elsewhere.

I can kill them without much of issue within good enough of time...That is where I got three candies easily on the first day probably within an hour or two. but yesterday was just not. 

Can this drop rate be fluctuating so much within a day? I do not think it is a matter of killing more mobs in shorter time. 

If expectation is 6 hours to get 3 candies...I do not know about this event...

I've been wondering this for a few days now but are the halloween cookies that you get for playing 2 hours a day different from the ones you need for the reward? I have 2 baskets and 2 cookies ( which I obtained by playing 2 hours a day ) but I am unable to 'combine' them. How does this work?

uncheck the AutoSort in your inventory. Then put them in order [Basket][Cookie] you should see a little button appear on the basket. Click the button to combine for event box.

i am unsure as to what you mean by she won't accept them....can you provide a screenshot? Did she take the first 3 candies? Or do you see the option to turn in the candy but she won't take them?

So now into day 3 of the event.  I have been grinding or working on guild missions for several hours each day.  And not one single candy has dropped for me.  the only two candies I have in my inventory are from other players drops who didn't collect them.  (1 purposefully.)  A the same time, at the same place, at the same node level, other players were able to collect as many as 10 within the same. 
Several other players are also reporting that they cannot get any drops or only ridiculously low drops.
Furthermore, many different players are unable to turn what candies they did get in.    thus we have a good portion of the population that has been in the game the last three days and unable to get even one of the daily boxes.
EVERY report and ticket on this issue is being ignored.  EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.  Can the GMs please just step up and admit these events are bugged, disable them and fix them so it is fair for everyone?

Too bad there wasn't costume to make players actually look like monsters, like zombies, or skeletons, or have an event at a couple of major cities where undead fill the streets at night & you could hunt them down for rewards

This is not Neverwinter
