Can't wait to see what the bonus might be; Though I assume it's just more ToTs ~~Excited

Yeah, it's more ToTs. Also, it didn't get removed from me after the event, it got removed after I left the ring, so I'm changing the note. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 07:33, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Nice... giving everybody a chance to get their thousands of ToTs any way they want. xD I like this hex. 13:48, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Is it worth noting that losing at Rock Paper Scissors forfeits this hex? --Focomotive 16:25, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Can someone add that it gives 1 gamer point when you answer correctly to mad king with this hex?? 16:34, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
added. --Craz1 16:38, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
You get more points for completing the whole routine (25?) with the hex still on and even more from winning RPS (not sure how many but i think you get more than 1) 19:31, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
True, you get 25 bonus points when mad king leaves, still i didn't check while playing RPS... 22:36, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Visibility Bug[edit]

I have a lvl 19 char. The hex does appear in the party window (purple arrow) but does not appear on my effects monitor. Anyone else noticed this? I don't know if it would still reward the bonus. --User Karasu sig.png Karasu (talk) 22:07, 31 October 2011 (UTC)


Is there any way to find out the natural duration of this hex? Much like "I Am the Strongest!", it has a duration that it counts down, though it is unspecified. I finished the last Mad King's visit with it still on me, and I never left the circle afterwards, and now two hours later, it's still on me, with the bar slightly ticked down (maybe a third of the way, but I'm rubbish at estimating). I heard something once about a way to measure super long duration skills like this by counting pixels or something. Anyone have any information on that? Ailina (talk) 21:27, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Lets guess it lasts the same duration as IAtS and go afk for 7 hrs 29 min... -Chieftain Alex 21:32, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
If Mad King's Fan is still active on your character (i.e. you haven't left the district or left the glowing circle), see if it is reapplied or not (i.e. if the duration is reset) at the next finale that starts in 3 minutes. --Silver Edge 21:57, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
It was reapplied, and the counter reset. Ailina (talk) 22:36, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
So if one wanted to test its duration by AFKing, they would have to maintain Mad King's Fan at the very last finale and never leave the glowing circle for 7 hours and 30 minutes. --Silver Edge 22:50, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

this is crystal that offered to help last night, it's been over 9 hours and still going strong, i'll post some screenshots later but it looks like 12 hours might be a reasonable guess --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 16:17, 1 November 2013 (UTC).

Nice work... if its not too late already, could you also press F10 and click on the link to Mad King's Fan under recently encountered skills? it should direct you to a game link page that needs filling in - could you tell us what page it links to (this is the skill id, which we're currently missing) got it off guildwiki, and it turned out we already had the game link setup. -Chieftain Alex 17:14, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
According to awesome researcher Crystal Mosaic, the above anon who was hanging out in LA to test this, it lasts 12 hours. Is this enough of a confirmation to add it to the page? Ailina (talk) 20:42, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
