Resetting pumpkins is actually a technical problem and not something that was meant to be relied upon. There are about 30 pumpkins in each of the following areas:

  • Lion’s Arch
  • Queensdale
  • Kessex Hills
  • Gendarren Fields
  • Metrica Province
  • Wayfarer Foothills
  • Caledon Forest
  • Plains of Ashford

And then some more elsewhere as well.

Some of them are rather devious.

I now feel proud for having found all 30 in Lion’s Arch. I initially thought I needed to find them all… so I did. Now it turns out, that was exactly the idea all along. Shame I got the achievement the easy way now, by reusing the same pumpkins in Lion’s Arch. Would have been fun to hunt for them in the other areas.

I’ve found quite a number out in the world. They’re generally in & around outposts or those little NPC manned farms and such. But it’s definitely easier finding them in LA as opposed to a big world zone.

Bah! How dare Anet not put all the pumpkins in the middle of LA so I can get instant gratification?!?

Joking aside, pumpkin hunting has seriously become one of my favourite things in the game right now

would be cool if you could spend candy corn on an item that helped you find pumpkins

Yeah, I agree, for sure. I thought the resetting pumpkin thing was deliberate at first. But I don’t care if people get the achievement before me, so long as I get the achievement! I love pumpkin hunting

So they aren’t supposed to reset? The official reply wasn’t clear on if resetting was the bug or not resetting was the bug.

Thanks for the clarification. So far I have been running into enough that I feel like I’m progressing. Of course will see how it goes as I get towards the end of the amount needed.
