He doesn't drop it currently because he usually only drops it during Halloween.

Oddly during questing we have a Pirate Pumpkin and a Clover Leaf wand in our back packs, not sure where the pumpkin came from but think the wand came from Trial of Spheres? I don't remember collecting off holiday items while not around that holiday before. This was recent questing right after the last batch of updates where all our houses are crated up and have to reload.

Maybe a glitch? Normally holiday items are only available for drops around the holiday they are for.

As others have said, it is only available at Halloween. Then you can also buy it from Spooky Bob in the shopping area.

If you must have it now, you could try buying the nightmare packs during Pack a Palooza, as it is possible to get it there -- although buying packs is a gamble, you never know for sure what you will get.

Thank you. I don't rely on Twitter. That's why I come to this Message Board. I did check on Facebook, and this is what Wizard101 posted on Jan. 31:

"Good news for our players! While holiday items are not intended to drop in the off-season it would appear that they are!

We will change these drop rates in a future game update, however in the meantime -- enjoy the increased holiday item drop rates!"

Once again, I don't follow Twitter, but I did find this update on wizard101central.com:

http://www.wizard101central.com/forums/showthread.php?399053-Holiday-Item-drop-rates-fixed

Post #10 on that thread (from today, 2/5) says:

From KingsIsle on Twitter:



"I can confirm that the off-season holiday drops have been removed but when Valentina returns later this week, her items will be available."

Hench that explains the Pirate Pumkin head and 4 leaf clover in our back packs recently.
