Picking Flowers

Picking a patch of flowers

One of the more predominant activities during Spring Festival is to run around picking flowers. If you take the time to do so then you will be rewarded with different colored gift boxes. Inside those boxes are special items!


Flowers and Locations:

Marigolds from the stone circle north of Michel Delving.

Violets from the stone circle outside Bree's West Gate.

Primrose flowers from above Celondim.



Horse Races

The Bree Derby

Join the Springfest Horse Races at the Shire or Bree-land festival grounds to earn Springfest Race Tokens that can be bartered for two different mounts: the Springtime Steed, and the Blue Roan Steed.

Race locations:

The Delving Fields Spring Festival Run - The Delving Fields, just north of the Shire Homesteads
The Bree-fields Spring Festival Run - The Festival Grounds in the Horsefields

The quest will appear above the race-master's head, and you will be directed to choose whatever horse/pony you like to use for the race. You race against the clock. Gallop around the track as fast as you can. If you do not reach the end in time and fail the quest, the quest will be available again in an hour.
