Samhain 2015 Event Guide



This is your guide to the Samhain 2015 Fall event in Celtic Heroes that lasted from October 28, 2015 to December 16 (Android) and December 21, 2015 (iOS). I'll be showing you new bosses, quests, chests, luxury items, mounts, fashion, and mobs along with maps and info about each part of the event.

Samhain is the Autumn event that falls between Beltane (Summer) and Yule (Winter). This event introduces the arrival of the Riders of Epona, and the Horsemen of Oblivion.


There are 4 Horsemen of Oblivion bosses this event. Each encounter is the same, but with more difficulty as the boss level gets higher. They come in 5* and 6* difficulties. The 5* Horsemen drop one item, and the 6* Horsement drop 3 items. See the map in the hat quest section below to see boss locations.

Respawn Times
  • 210 respawns 5 hours after he was killed in a 5 minute window. 
  • 160 respawns 3 hours after he's killed.
  • 110 respawns 2 hours after he's killed.
  • 60 respawns 1 hours after he's killed.
Osan Marach and his Horsemen of Oblivion used to be members of the Riders of Epona but were ticked by an evil sprite into giving their souls in return of everlasting life. However they quickly learned of the treachery and their souls were taken to Yoch Darach where they were conerted to become leaders of Donn's hoarde in Samhain.
