lotro-anniversary-festival_header

LOTRO is celebrating five years and this year’s event has been revamped into a full blown festival with quests, deeds and rewards to earn! This year’s event is going on from April 16 – 30th.

The quests are mostly broken up into four major regions in Middle Earth.

  • Bree Firework Stand by North Gate (29.1S, 52.2W Bree-town)
  • Bree Boar Fountain (63.95N, 132.90W Bree-town)
  • Thorin’s Hall (13.48S, 103.2W Thorin’s Gate) – in the underground Tavern
  • Shire Methel Stage (32.68S, 69.92W)

Not included in this festival
Most festivals mean certain things are also available by default. The horse races are active for this festival but the other festival extras are not active in this festival. This means the following items are not available but they will return with the Spring Festival!


Deeds

  • The Mighest Arm: granted for clubbing 200 opponents in the beer battle and gives you the title “Clubber”
  • Why Your Head Hurts: granted for winning the beer fight 25 times on expert level and gives the title “Battered, Bruised and Contused”.
  • Fireworks: Launch Blue Fireworks: Granted for launching 50 blue fireworks. Gives you 1 anniversary token
  • Fireworks: Launch Red Fireworks: Granted for launching 50 red fireworks. Gives you 1 anniversary token
  • Fireworks: Launch Green Fireworks: Granted for launching 50 green fireworks. Gives you 1 anniversary token
  • Fireworks: Launch Yellow Fireworks: Granted for launching 50 yellow fireworks. Gives you 1 anniversary token
  • Fireworks: Launch Orange Fireworks: Granted for launching 50 orange fireworks. Gives you 1 anniversary token
  • Fireworks: Launch Purple Fireworks: Granted for launching 50 purple fireworks. Gives you 1 anniversary token
  • Fireworks: Master Firework Launcher: Granted for completing each of of the firework color deeds. Gives you 1 anniversary token and title of “Master Blaster”
  • Cartographile – Eriador: Collect all 21 maps of Eriador to obtain a Map of Eriador, the title “ Eriador Cartographile and 10 Turbine Points. See this post for more details on this deed. Only 8 of the 21 maps are available to pick up in this festival.
  • Cartographile – Moria: Collect all 11 maps of Moria to obtain a Map of Moria for your house, the title, “Moria Cartographile and 10 Turbine Points. This deed works exactly the same as the Eriador deed (maps are tradable etc) and all 11 maps are available to pick up in this festival.

Quests

The Anniversary Event

5th Anniversary CloakQuest Giver: Letter in your mailbox
Quest Level: 1+
Rewards:1 Anniversary Token, Cloak of the Fifth Spring, Anniversary Fireworks
Repeat: No

This quest starter is sent to you via the mail so check your mailbox. This quest sends you around to visit all the locations for the anniversary event.

  • Visit the beer-fight arena in Thorin’s Hall
  • Visit the site of the Shire race-track
  • Visit the site of the Bree race-track
  • Visit the fireworks area near Bree’s North-gate
  • Visit the Methel-stage in the Shire

After visiting all the locations you are to run to Percy Brywood in Bree to turn in and receive your reward.

Fireworks in the Shire

Stage FireworksQuest Giver: Milo Brockhouse
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards:1 Anniversary Token
Repeat: Every 10 minutes or so

This quest is available on fairly short reset timer of about 5 minutes between the end of the last event and the announcement of the next. This event happens regardless of time of day (Bree fireworks show is night-only). The show will not start unless there are “more than one or two participants” present.

Talk to Milo Brockhouse on the Methel-stage. Then wait until the show starts (when the firework launchers on the stage become active). Click on the launchers to participate in the show.

After the crowd has been suitably impressed (the NPCs watching will start cheering) you can speak to Milo to claim your reward. There is a 3 minute timer for the quest; if not enough fireworks are launched during that time, the quest will fail.

You may repeat this quest as often as it is available, assuming there are enough people present to make the show work.

Firework Explorer

GandalfQuest Giver: Gandalf
Quest Level: 30+
Rewards:1 Anniversary Token, Title: “Firecracker”
Repeat: No

This quest comes from an old familiar friend who is watching the fireworks show at the Methel-stage. Gandalf has asked you to travel to each of these locations and launch the appropriate fireworks:

  • Launch blue fireworks at the firework show in Bree, near the North-gate.
  • Launch red fireworks at Frérin’s Court outside of Thorin’s Hall.
  • Launch green fireworks at the Last Homely House in Rivendell.
  • Launch yellow fireworks at the Party Tree of Hobbiton in the Shire.
  • Launch orange fireworks at the summit of Weathertop in the Lone-lands.
  • Launch purple fireworks outside Tom Bombadil’s home in the Old Forest.

An announcement will appear on the screen when you are in the correct area to launch the firework and even reminds you which color.

Before you leave Gandalf, make sure you stop at one of the two Fireworks Vendors near him to pick up the fireworks you need to complete this quest. You only need one of each color to complete the quest but you’ll probably will want to pick up a stack to complete the deed associated with fireworks (see deed section above).

Note: This quest is listed as quest level 30 however my level 15 Lore-master was able to obtain it. I do not think there is any barrier to lower levels getting this quest.

Fireworks in Bree

Bree FireworksQuest Giver: Winston Peartree
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: 2 Anniversary Tokens
Repeat: Every 30 minutes (night-time only)

This quest is only available at night. The fireworks area is one of the farms on the north side of Bree. After you start this quest, an event panel will appear on your screen with fireworks in it. You use these to participate in the show.

The Fireworks Announcer will call out the fireworks for you to use, and you need to do this correctly 10 times to complete the quest. If you launch an incorrect firework, the quest is failed and you will need to start over. This quest can be repeated every 30 minutes (as long as it is night in-game).

Some instructions you may hear from the Fireworks Announcer:

“Quickly, launch a green firework high into the sky!”

“This is not the time for resting, launch your red fireworks!”

”Send up anything except a blue firework; this will be unexpected!”

”Send up a yellow firework, this is the perfect time for one!”

There is no set pattern that needs to be followed for this (you can choose not to launch a firework and will not fail the quest for inactivity), just random instructions to either use or not use a specific color.

Sparking an Interest

Ideal FireworksQuest Giver: Young Took or Young Brandybuck
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: 2 Anniversary Tokens
Repeat: Daily

These quest givers can be found in the Bree Fireworks location. During the day they’re standing in the middle of the fireworks field. In the evening these two young hobbits are off to the side watching the show.

This quest sends you around Bree looking for “Ideal places to launch fireworks” to spark the interest of the townsfolk in the firework show. There are approximately 15-20 “ideal locations” for this quest, but the place to click de-spawns after someone else uses it. Also, you sometimes you will see a spot that someone else can’t see and vice versa.

Ketani was awesome enough to map out the ideal locations on the map to help give you an idea where to look.

The quest almost looks like you should have small fireworks in you inventory but nothing is required. When you find an ideal location, simply click on it and the firework will launch. Find an launch 6 fireworks in ideal locations and collect your tokens.

Lost Invitations

EnvelopeQuest Giver: Percy Brywood
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: 2 Anniversary Tokens
Repeat: Daily (or more if you buy badges)

This quest requires you to have a [Honorary Postman's Badge] in order to do the quest. You can obtain one of these per day from the Bree Postmaster located next to this quest giver.

If you want to continue to repeat this quest without waiting until the next day, you’ll have to buy another Badge from the store (for 100 TP). It works a bit similarly to buying more picks during the Treasure-Hunt. You’re just buying a chance to pick up more envelopes.

envelopeYou are to search throughout Bree-town for envelopes, pick them up and find 6 invitations. You can continue to pick up envelopes until you receive all 6 invitations.

The envelopes could be sitting still on ledges, under bushes or sleeping people, stuck to the sides of walls or they can be free floating around and you can chase and catch them.

The quest completes when 6 invitations have been collected.

The envelopes could contain more than just invitations in them. Sometimes there’s some vendor trash an extra anniversary token or better like Horses or Emotes!

Lost Invitation Horses:

Envelope Horses
Balimbor on the Lossoth Steed and Goldenstar’s hunter on the Steed of the Dusk-watch (lists in my skill list as the “Warden’s Steed”). Both can be obtained randomly from opening envelopes. How’d they get those horses in the envelopes anyway?

These are 68% speed 250 morale horses. I assure you this is a completely random reward. It doesn’t matter if you catch a static or floating around envelope.

/Toast Emote:

I think was episode 125 where we talked about there being a /toast emote in Bullroarer build 5.2 release notes but I was so frustrated I couldn’t find it on bullroarer. Now we know why! It’s a randomly received reward from an envelope during this festival!

Also check out @Unvisible_Ork’s video of this emote being shown properly by a dwarf!

Gift Quest

Quest Giver: Can start from any NPC listed in the listing below
Quest Level: 10+
Rewards: 7 Anniversary Tokens
Repeat: Weekly resetting on Thursday

The following “Gift” quests have you deliver an item from one NPC to another. They are not difficult to get to and completing one of these quests grants you a 15 minute +10% out of combat run speed buff. These quests reward 1 anniversary token each, and the individual quests are on what appears to be a weekly timer (Thursday morning, 3am?).

You can pick up any of these quests from one of the NPCs listed below, the order of delivering gifts is set in a loop but you can start from anywhere.

Gift – A Pint of Ale

  • From Rúnulf in Thorin’s Hall Inn (the area near the door to the beer arena)
  • To Roger Hazeltwig in Bree (standing by the Boar Fountain)

Gift – A Delicate Bracelet

Gift – Delicious Pastries

Gift – Wooden Carving

Gift – New Hammer

  • From Esmerelda Burrows
  • To Dudo Chubb in Hobbiton (standing by the Task Bulletin Board)

Gift – Dwarf-shield

  • From Dudo Chubb
  • To Ormur in Frerin’s Court (east of the stable)

Gift – Lucky Goat’s Horn

Horse Races

The festival horse races have returned with special anniversary steeds for you to earn.

This event operates the same way as all other festival horse races. If you are new to the festival horse races you can read our General Festival Guide for the run down on this event.

The race quest rewards one of the following: 1 anniversary race token -or- .1 anniversary tokens. It is repeatable daily for both the Bree and Shire locations.

There are two mounts available at Hengstacer Farm from the festival horse trader Will Peartree

Anniversary Steed
Anniversary Steed
62% speed 100 morale

  • 1 Anniversary Race Tokens
  • 1 document of mount ownership
  • 20 Anniversary Tokens
Fireworks Laden Steed
Fireworks Laden Steed *NEW*
62% speed 200 morale
Cost:

  • 2 Anniversary Race Tokens
  • 1 document of mount ownership
  • 40 Anniversary Tokens

*Note: this steed randomly fires off fireworks as it runs.

 

Battle for Glorious Beer

dwarfclubThe Battle for Glorius Beer happens in Thorin’s Hall. There are two entrances to the festival arena. One is outside by the steps leading up to the gate and one is inside Thorin’s Hall down in the underground tavern on the back wall. Look for the door labeled “The Festival Arena”.

The Mightest Blow is the name of the quest you are given by Gisli Strongclub who hands you a Dwarf Club of Unimaginable Power. You should put this club in your action bar so you can easily use it.

There are now three difficulty levels for this quest. Basic, Intermediate and Expert. You must do the Basic quest before the other options are available to you, even if you have done the Beer Fight in previous festivals.

Basic

  • smack people around with your new bat 8 times
  • you will not fail the quest if you are knocked out of the arena
  • you do not need to pick up the mug of Glorious Beer
  • reward is 1 Anniversary Token

Intermediate

  • smack people around with your new bat 8 times
  • you will fail the quest if you are knocked out the arena
  • you do not need to pick up the mug of Glorious Beer
  • reward: 2 Anniversary Token

Expert

  • smack people around with your new bat 8 times
  • you will fail the quest if you are knocked out the arena
  • pick up the mug of Glorious Beer
  • reward: 3 Anniversary Token

Each round lasts 3 minutes and this event is repeatable each time a new round starts. The quest becomes available to pick up 3 minutes after the previous event ends so you’ll looking at about a 9-minute cycle for this event from start to end.


Gift Box Tokens

Just like previous years, monsters will be dropping level appropriate gift boxes randomly that will hold metal themed names. These are not the same as the anniversary tokens. You will not have to do anything special as these will just randomly drop as you are slaying your foes.

Token Types:

  • Calendard
  • Ancient Gold
  • Platinum
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Iron
  • Tin

The NPCs that do the token exchange are called “Keeper of Gifts”. Update 2 added these vendors to all the major hubs in each zone so they’re be easier to turn in this year. You can expect things like potions, hope tokens, skirmish marks, relics, food, and fun items like cosmetics and fireworks recipes to randomly drop from these gift boxes.

You can also trade in your tokens for Marks if you prefer those over the random gifts in the boxes.

See this post on the forums where folks are listing what they are picking up from each level of gift boxes.

This event is also available for monster players to participate in!

    Just wondering if anyone has found an unknown deed in the Lorebook (ie. Setting of fireworks 10 days in a row) or anything of the sort. Frostbluff had the ‘Such Generosity’ Deed = complete the quest “A Charitable Spirit” 10 times to receive the title “The Openhanded” and 50 frostbluff coins.

      There is a deed for launching 50 of each color of fireworks. I somehow forgot to include that one in my notes to GS. Ooops, I’ll get right on that!

        The Lost Invitation quest ends when you OPEN the envelopes, so you can collect them and keep them in your inventory until the next time you do the quest. I currently have 12 extra envelopes. I find it more efficient to make one run, grab a bunch then do it over and over.

        Also, pairing up with people in the Bar Fight makes it MUCH easier to complete on expert. Yesterday we had over 12 people paired churning through the Bar Fights…

    Sparking an interest seems to have an issue where it may take you quite some time to complete it after you’ve got 5 of 6. People are reporting that leaving Bree, and returning later (half an hour or more later,) is a workaround, but often, once you’ve got 5 of 6, you won’t see the sparklies. This did happen to me last night, but apparently, it doesn’t happen to everyone.

      You are assigned spots when you take the quest. Other people can take the spot, so you’ll have to be lucky and hope to ride by while it is up

      • Lykaenus Says:

        I noticed other people getting the spots I was headed to. However, I stayed at the spot where I saw “my node”, and after about one minute, it came up and I quickly grabbed it. If you see one, it is yours… if you weren’t able to get it at that moment, wait till it re-spawns.

        Reply

        • Xenophit Says:

          I had a similar issue at the beginning of the festival. I was at 5 of 6 and saw my last spot… but after waiting for a while (probably wasn’t a full minute) I noticed another spot appear. I’m of the opinion that you can’t use the same spot more than once per quest, but that if the final spot available to you is used, that a new spot is likely to respawn for your near by.

          Reply

    • Shardis Says:

      There are 6 different areas of town where you have to get the updates. You will only see a spot if you have not got the update for that area yet. Normally when a spot is used, a new spot is randomly chosen out of the possible ones for that area. It takes a few seconds for the new spot to spawn.

      Folks sometimes think this quest is bugged because the possible spots at Prancing Pony seem to be on a longer respawn timer than the other 5 areas.

    I have a question about the daily quest timer. When do the timers reset — is it by a certain server time (e.g., 10pm/3pm/5am/whatever) or something else?

    very expensive to get the firework-deeds. one firework costs 6silver. you need 50 of each of the 5 or 6 colors.

    • Cosmetic Lotro Says:

      It’s helpful to participate in the lotteries every week. I’ve won quite a few fireworks over the past year and had 3 out of 6 colours already done and the other colours over halfway. It was a piece of cake to finish the deed that way.

      Reply

    • brrmont Says:

      If you do it in a fellowship and have each of the fellowship members divvy up the ‘works, perhaps you can all get credit for each person’s launch. To whit, five-person fellowship, buy 10 of each color and shoot ‘em off together. Note: This is my plan for the last day or two of the fest…not sure if it’s legit or not.

    I ran two characters thru the Sparking and interest quest and had fits with both – took hours to finally get the 6th one to show up. Will definitely not be doing that quest again – life’s too short :)

    Thanks for the guide GS! Very complete as always.
    I noticed that you used last years’ images to feature the Cloak of the Shining Star, but it has since then changed appearance. It is now long for every character and its default colour is bright white (not washed anymore). Shame, because I thought that short cloak looked rather nice. :(

  8. Ike Illmore Says:

    I believe the Anniversary Steed only requires one Anniversary Race Token, not two. I haven’t got one yet but I visited Will Peartree at Hengstacer Farm yesterday and that was what was displayed in the dialog. Also it says one on the “Item:Anniversary Steed” page on LOTRO wiki.

      You don’t have to run with the fireworx pony for the fireworks to misfire, you can be stationary. So it’s a random timer, not random mileage for the riding.

  14. sonne Says:

    Something I noticed about the “Sparking an Interest” quest: It seems there are six zones in Breetown, you will need to find a glowy spot in each of the six zones. For example, if you find one near West Gate, there’s no point to looking there any longer, move on.

    The six zones are Near West Gate, the grass north of the road halfway to the Prancing Pony, the plaza outside the Prancing Pony, the plaza around the Boar Fountain, the area outside the Town Hall, and lastly, near South Gate.

    Reply

    • DancesInTrees Says:

      It’s not that simple: I picked up 2 by the west gate within a few seconds of each other.

      Reply

      • Shardis Says:

        Sonne is actually correct. The possible spots in each area are usually near a npc but 2 in jail-mayor plaza are not. The 6 areas are:
        South Gate
        plaza with jail and mayor’s house
        boar fountain plaza
        Prancing Pony
        area between West Gate and tavern focused on forges and Lily Sandheaver
        West Gate itself

        The West Gate area and forge-Liy area are so close that folks think they are getting 2 spots in the same area.

        Some spots people forget to check:
        farmer between West Gate and vault (part of West Gate area)
        a hobbit east of Lily (part of Lily-forge area)
        a spot just west of the Mayor’s house door (part of jail-mayor area)

    Are there any exclusive cosmetic items that are only available from the Keepers of Gifts when you turn in the metallic tokens?

    For instance, it used to be (and may still be the case) that the short-sleeved Elven dress was only available from a random box drop from the Keeper of Gifts in the Moors when you turned in ancient gold tokens.

    Reply

  17. Hatter_of_Bree Says:

    About the esparking interest. i feel, the Pony location is main culprit.

    Reasons are twofold.

    First, every other of the six areas has 4 spawning points for the quest, only Pony has three. It may be, that the fourht spawn point is sowmewhere not accessible, and this if you get unlucky enough to be assigned it, your only solution is to wait for it to reset to something bearable.

    Second. Pony is a crossroad of sorts. So one has bigger competition there. west gate is busy too.

    I agree with you. I don’t think there is a level requirement for Gandalf’s fireworks quest. A friendly hunter took one of my low level characters to Rivendell and Ost Guruth where she completed the quest. However, one of my other alts (level 8) couldn’t get a ride with a hunter, and she died in Trollshaws. She was planning on getting the Undying title, so it was a bit of a tragedy for the sake of a couple of tokens. Live and learn :D

    Love your site!

    Might be a wee bit late to add this in but the firework launch spots for sparking an interest are usually near to npc’s. Helped me find them instead of riding up and down the area looking vaguely about.

    They will react and go “ooh thats right there’s a fireworks display” (or similar) as if they’d been totally oblivious to the racket from the display area every night for the past week. Southbree stable guy tells you to go away and stop frightening the horses so their chatter is tied to the person and area.

    I’m starting to think the toast emote is only privey to Elves and Dwarves. lol I’ve managed to get it on every one of my elves, but try as I may on my Hobbits I just can’t seem to get it. It is such a Hobbity emote too!

    The “Sparking Interest” quest I’ve just stashed in my back pocket as something I’ll finish while working on my other quests. If I see a node, I grab it but I’m not actively looking for them.
