    Default night revels candy already bad?!

    Is this WAI or something that happened with the new patch? I thought they were good at least until the next event or for the full year after. I was not expecting them all to go bad so soon.

    They had mentioned in the update 42.4 release notes:

    Items

    Night Revels Ingredients have crumbled to dust.
    I thought that meant that the Night Revels challenge crafting ingredients (cinnamon, almond, apple, caramel), but it looks like it applied to the temporary festival candies as well.

    just so you know though, those candies are really meant to only last for about a month after the Night Revels event ends in November (by the end of the year if you read the candy description). Cordovan said they overlook the expiration date as a courtesy/favor to the community (the first year that the Night Revels debuted, it was more of an oversight that they did not degrade those candies by the end of the year, and Cordovan just winked and said he would not remind the person in charge of it).

    personally, I think they should explicitly make the candies last for a year - I do like them.

    Then you have not read the description properly. It very clearly says they will go bad at the end of the year. SSG have always been nice and let us use them until just before the next halloween event, so we almost get a full year out of them, instead of a couple of months.

    The description that always has the wrong year listed? Hard to see why that would be confusing

    There goes my extra dodge

    On the other hand, I free up 3 spaces in my inventory...

    Question: If I keep it till Halloween, does that mean I dont need to buy it again? It will auto unbad candy itself?

    The description said it would go bad at the end of last year...so clear as mud from what I can see.

    Night Revels Candy is meant to go bad at the end of the year you get it in. Sometimes we let it last a lot longer, but it'll always go bad before the next Night Revels, which is coming up Soon.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    Will it un-bad itself when the night revels come? Or do I need to buy new ones?

    Soon always has to be capitalized in context with DDO I love it.

    I appreciate that the candies last as long as they do. Mabar is close.

    Please continue the tradition of letting it last "a lot longer". Fizzling out after a few months would kind of suck... Not the stick again, Daddy!!!
