Webkinz Insider Members Solve Trick or Treat Ghost Pattern!
 
A new front page story has been added:

Webkinz Insider Members Solve Trick or Treat Ghost Pattern!


Thanks to the Webkinz Insider members who have been working hard to track Ghost sightings in our Ghostbuster thread we can now tell you how to predict where the Ghost will appear on your personal account!

Once you see the Ghost once on your account, you should be able to figure out where he will be on that account for the rest of the week. When you see him the first time, make note of what color you were in and the exact time you saw him. When you return in three hours to try to find him again make sure you pick the same color. The Ghost will appear in 20 minute intervals in certain rooms.

If the Ghost showed up on your account at :08 after the hour,
he'll show up at :08, :28, & :48.

If the Ghost showed up on your account at :12 after the hour,
he'll show up at :12, :32, & :52.

UPATE: The timing has changed. The Ghost is now appearing at :08, :23, :38, & :53. If you just stay in the same room in the same color, you should have two chances an hour of finding the Ghost.

Now, figuring out what room he will be in is a little bit trickier, but as long as you stay in the same color zone, there is a pattern to follow that should have you getting candy in no time.

Party Room to Girls Rule Room to Garden Yard to Party Room, etc.
Games Room to Sports Room to Bowling Alley to Games Room, etc.
Go Fish Room, to Exercise Room to Trading Room to Go Fish Room, etc.
Collector Room to Reading Room to Super Chef Room to Collector Room, etc.

If the Ghost showed up on your account at :08 in the Collector Room, he is on this pattern:
:08 Collector Room to :28 Reading Room to :48 Super Chef Room to :08 Collector Room, etc.

If the Ghost showed up on your account at :12 in the Party Room, he is on this pattern:
:12 Party Room to :32 Girls Rule Room to :52 Garden Yard to :12 Party Room, etc.

Once you figure out what pattern your account is on, write it down so you won't forget!

Unfortunately, just like with Doug the Dog, the sometimes the Ghost doesn't show up in every room number of the type of room he's supposed to be in. This is the way it has been designed, each room instance has its own odds of having the ghost appear. To find the Ghost, you just have to be patient and keep trying.

Each server is on a different pattern and many people have been trying to figure out what server they are on to try to figure out the pattern. If you know your server, you can match up your pattern with other members who are on the same server, but this information is NOT necessary. As long as you spot him once on your account, you have all of the information you need to predict where he will be.

It is worth noting that once you get candy from the Ghost your internet browser will lock up and you will get kicked out of Webkinz World. Some members have reported being able to say logged in if they quickly switch rooms after getting candy. Either way, you get to keep your candy.

A special thank you goes out to to webkinzaddict and maypal for sorting out the pattern, to crnovak, jagular, and adrkmfdm for fine-tuning the details, and to webfamily for helping so many members figure out how the pattern applies to their accounts!

UPDATE: Ganz has also let us know that they've squashed the "freezing" / "locking" bug!!!

What about the people who have spent hours in various clubhouse rooms following all the advice and instead of ever seeing the ghost they are suddenly told the clubhouse is closed or they are changing channels without them doing anything to cause it?

I have two candies for each of my kids (from yesterday)... now I need to try and remember when and where I got them...

Yay! Just got a piece of candy! (and my computer just froze up, so I had to force-quit! :D )
Thank you all so much for this guide! Hopefully I'll be able to get that Jack-O-Lantern soon enough...

Thanks to everyone on the ghost thread! I found out which server I am on, what my pattern is, and I found the ghost!! :D
I never could have found the ghost the "Easy" way without WI!

I think it's a miraculous accomplishment, for you all to have figured this out, but is anyone else looking at this and screaming WHAT THE HECK IS GANZ THINKING?!

I mean, really. How is anyone (let alone any child?) supposed to just stumble upon the ghost and collect all 12 pieces of candy, with this kind of pattern? We've hung around the Clubhouse on 3 different days for more than an hour each, and have yet to see the ghost. Today is Monday. It's very unlikely we'll get 12 pieces at this rate.

Ganz, honest to Betsy, what are you thinking? The Fall Fest wasn't enough of a debacle? We invented a new one, and made this one even more frustrating?

Please. Next time? Make the frequency simple enough that everyone can complete the "quest" and get the prize. You are just setting up huge frustrations, the way you structure these events. Please make them easier, or just stop.

I could not agree more!!!!! I have found the ghost, but do not remember when or where. SIGH... I guess I am a proof ghost tracker :wallbash:
