This task was introduced in October 2006 and is available every year around Halloween.

This task is offered by various NPCs. Each starting city has a quest NPC titled "the Bonecollector" who gives the task.

You say, 'Hail, Uzek the Bonecollector'

Uzek the Bonecollector says 'Greetings, _____. You look familiar, but now is not the time for pleasantries. A skeleton uprising has began to overwhelm this area. If we don't [act fast] we will be out of a home in no time at all.'

You say, 'Act fast?'

Uzek the Bonecollector says 'If you are willing to [lend a hand] we just might be able to expel the wretches back to their graves.'

You say, 'I will lend a hand'

Uzek the Bonecollector says 'Excellent. Your efforts will not go unnoticed.'

You have been assigned the task 'Skeleton Zapping'.

A recent uprising must be dealt with! Use the Scythe of Skeletal Expulsion to destroy as many of them as you can.



Expel 10 skeletons with the Scythe of Skeletal Expulsion 0/10 (ALL)

Use the scythe's effect to kill 10 enraged skeletons.

This effect will not work on every single skeleton type.

It will work on :
- a skeletal ogre in Crescent Reach
- an accursed lookout in Blightfire Moors
- an enraged dwarf skeleton at the haunted tower in Butcherblock Mountains

It has been reported to NOTt work on :
- a halfling skeleton in Misty Thicket
- a grimling skeleton in Shar Vahl

Reward (received after you kill the last one):
5x Ginormous Jawbreaker

The scythe works on the undead fishermen in Crescent Reach. I don't understand why it doesn't work on decaying skeletons though. Undead fishermen are level 1 and most decaying skeletons are 1-2.
Repeatable?

It looks like this one might not be repeatable anymore. I completed it once but going back to the quest giver, I got the "I don't have anything for someone with your abilities" message. No mention of a lockout timer. And after three hours, there was no change. Anyone else experiencing this?

I went into Qeynos and the decaying skeletons were immune. Field of Bone and Kurns worked; even on the yellow ones; level 7 I did this at. Received over 30% experience. .

Tried this with a few different toons. Level does not seem important except that you cannot zap the skeletons under level 10; However, the quest NPC will not give to some toons, no matter the level . He says "Sorry (toon's name), I don't have anything for someone with your abilities". Tried with level 13, 21 and lvl 110 toons that could not get the quest. However, he gave it to a couple of lvl 1 toons that could not zap the skeletons..

Any ideas please anyone ?

That message about not having something for someone of your abilities can also come up if you have already done the quest/task/mission. Check under your Achievements -Events - Holiday -Nights of the Dead: The Monster Mash

I tried this quest in the newbie areas outside of Halas and outside of Firiona Vie. The effect on the scythe would not work.

The scythe effect wouldn't work on the 'a halfling skeletons' in Misty Thicket, but it does work on the level 16 'a skeletal ogre' npcs in Crescent Reach, just to the north, in the hunting grounds area.

The scythe won't work on every skeleton but Kordulaf the Bonecollector's (in Butcherblock) scythe worked fine on the enraged skeletons found by their tower and near the dwarf merchants on the beach near the aqua goblins.

Tried this in Nektulos off of the DEF Bonecollector. The scythe was bugged and would not work on any undead in the zone. Ran all over the place, even to Kithikor to try it there and nothing. All mobs were immune and I got a message back about it.

Deleted quest/scythe and tried it in Crescent Reach and it worked just fine.

This task is repeatable. When completing it : "You have received a replay timer for 'Skeleton Zapping' 0d:3h:0m remaining." Also, it can be done at level 100, therefore "Maximum level: 90" should be adjusted, just like all Halloween tasks.

This is a quick and easy quest to do for newbie toons. I did discover that you do not have to zap the skellies in the same newbie zone you pick up the quest in. As an example I picked up the quest in Crescent Reach and went to Freeport where there are lots of decaying skellies. So if you find there are to much competition for decaying skeletons; just find another zone; I took a level 3 and gained a level just by zapping; they were dark blue. Happy hunting.
Wouldn't give me the task

As a level 75 Ranger, Rentila the Bonecollector in Surefall Glade would not give me this task. After saying "I will lend a hand" she replied "Sorry __________, I don't have anything for someone with your abilities." Perhaps this is level limited...
