DC Universe Online Wiki

The Witching Hour is a Halloween-themed seasonal event that occurs throughout the month of October. It replaced the Spooktacular event.

The event showcases Halloween throughout Gotham City and features Halloween-themed items and unique missions and locations for the Player Character to explore.


All hell has broken loose in the streets of Gotham City and inside The Midnight Masquerade Nightclub!

Visit the foyer of the House of Legends or go to the East End safehouse in Gotham City and speak to the Phantom Stranger (Heroes) or The Tap Room in Burnley and speak to Tala (Villains) to receive further instructions.

Each day of the event, look for The Witching Hour in your Mission Journal to complete and earn Spooky Bites! To queue for The Midnight Masquerade, go into your On Duty UI and look under the Events Tab. The mission and the event are available to players at or above Level 10.

The Vault has gotten a bit spookier during The Witching Hour Event. Don't be afraid to check it out!

  • The first appearance of this event Eat, Drink and be Scary in 2011, which featured only special items and a beginner-level instance with increased difficulty, was so badly received that SOE revised and restructured the entire event for its next release in 2012.
  • Batwoman's original appearance in DC Universe Online was based off of her original appearance in 2006, however, as of the 2018 seasonal Halloween Event, Batwoman's look was updated to her 2009 "Post-Final Crisis" appearance. The update is possibly to celebrate the character's appearance in three crossover episodes of CW's The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl on December 9th to December 11th, 2018.
