Spring Festival 2012 starts on May 24, 2012 and ends June 11, 2012. This year introduces the Simbelmynë Steed (and matching cosmetics) and welcomes back the Springtime Steed from last year. New cosmetic and housing items are also introduced.

Lore

'Look!' said Gandalf. 'How fair are the bright eyes in the grass! Evermind they are called, simbelmynë in this land of Men, for they blossom in all the seasons of the year, and grow where dead men rest." - The Two Towers

The namesake for the festival's new items, Simbelmynë (or "Evermind"), is the Rohirric name for a certain species of small white flower. It grew in particular abundance on graves and tombs, but most famously on the Barrowfield of the Kings of Rohan, beneath the walls of Edoras.

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 that was introduced in Spring Festival 2011, and Simbelmynë Steed the new steed for 2012.

Race locations:

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.

Festival Mounts

The new Simbelmynë steed

The festival mounts are obtained by bartering items with Will Peartree at the Festival Horse Trader at Hengstacer Farm in Bree-land.
