Anniversary Celebration 2016.png

April 24, 2016, marks the ninth anniversary of the Lord of the Rings Online and as such special events will take place from April 22 - May 8.[1] Jointly with the celebration, Turbine will continue giving out anniversary gifts to reward players based on their sign-up date. The festival repeats the events from previous Anniversary Festivals, with the addition of new items, including a Windfells Goat, Fire Flower Cloak, White Tree Fireworks, blue orb emote and the ability to barter for Star-lit Crystals [2]. LOTRO held a Ninth Anniversary Livestream on their Twitch channel. At the end of the stream, Frelorn gave away two codes worth 1,000 LOTRO Points each in Twitch raffles. For the "grand prize" Twitch raffle, he gave away The One Ring "on a nice chain," an artbook and soundtrack from the original release of the collector's edition of the game, and a cloth map of the Mines of Moria.[3]

Festivities

Fireworks shows

Main article: Fireworks

There are two fireworks show areas, one in The Shire at the Methel-stage and one at Bree Fireworks Area, in northern Bree.

At the Methel-stage, the object of this fireworks show is to shoot off as many rockets as possible within the time limit to appease the crowd. This quest repeats roughly every 10 minutes night or day, much like the dancing quests. You will also find an old friend who suggests that you celebrate by shooting fireworks in many different locations of Eriador.

In Bree, this fireworks show takes place only at night. The player is given four colours of fireworks and the Fireworks Announcer will call out phrases directing which type of fireworks to shoot. You will fail the quest if you fire off the wrong colour firework. During the day, two young Hobbits request that you find good spots to fire off rockets to gather support for the fireworks show.


Gift giving

Many of the citizens of Eriador are in a gift-giving mood. They request that you deliver a certain item to a person, and in turn, that person asks you to return the favor and give a gift to another person forming a circle of quests that leads you back to the first person. You can pick up the quest at any point and the quests are repeatable every 3 days 15 hours.

Lost Invitations

A strong wind blew away all the invitations that Percy Bywood was supposed to deliver for the Anniversary Celebrations. The quest Lost Invitations is available daily, but can be repeated more often by spending 5 Mithril Coins each time to reset the quest. Envelopes are scattered throughout Bree, both stuck to walls and other objects as well as envelopes blowing in the wind. Envelopes may contain a variety of items including Festival Invitations, Unwanted Messages, Anniversary Tokens, a war-steed cosmetic set and an emote.

The Battle for Glorious Beer

Main article: The Battle for Glorious Beer

Duke it out in the Festival Arena for a chance to grab the Glorious Beer. Use your Dwarf-club of Unimaginable Power to knock your competitors out of the way. Watch out because your quest for the glorious beer will be over if you get knocked out of the arena.


Horse Races

The stables at the Bree Derby

Main article: Festival Horse Races

Each festival brings exciting horse races to The Shire Race-track and the Bree-land Festival Grounds. By completing a race in time, players can win festival tokens which can be exchanged for festival rewards. Starting with Yule Festival 2012, you no longer must win a horse race to purchase exclusive festival mounts from Will Peartree at Hengstacer Farm. At the Anniversary Festival, festival mounts can also be purchased from Henry Peartree at the Bree Market Square
