Overview

The Yule Festival 2013 is a continuation in the tradition of previous Yuletide Festivals with the main activities being the festival celebrations in Frostbluff. There are additional activities to earn tokens or emotes in each of the other Festival Grounds.

The festival has changed little from the previous year, with the Festival Tokens currency and The More the Merrier deeds continued from Yule Festival 2012. Additions to the event include a new deed (The Bard), three new costmetic pieces, a new horse and war-steed appearance, and a consumable Map to Winter-home[1]. A Mount Vendor has been introduced, bartering horses from previous Yule Festivals in exchange for Mithril Coins.

The Honoured Yule-friend deed was reset prior to the festival as part of Update 12.1 to allow players a chance to experience the alternate ending to the deed if they've previously completed it[2].

Yule Festival 2013 commenced on December 18, 2013 and will conclude on January 14, 2014[3].

Festival Grounds


Festivities

Winter-home

Winter-home Festival Square

Main article: Winter-home

You are cordially invited to join our Yule Festival celebration in Winter-Home. We have many events to suit your taste, whether you like eating contests, snowball-fights, the theater, or simply helping folks around town.

General Festival Events

Festival Dances

Main article: Dance of the Races
During all seasonal Festivals, Dance Leaders will teach characters up to eight special racial dances (two from each Race) by completing dance lessons. There is one Dance Leader located in each of the festival grounds of Thorin's Hall Inn and The Festival Garden in Ered Luin, The Party Tree in The Shire, and the Festival Grounds in Bree-land.

Dance lessons take place approximately every 20 minutes, and the quests are available for about 5 minutes before the dance begins. As of U20, the quest start times are random.

When the Dance Leader starts, target the leader and follow their instructions using the commands /dance1, /dance2, or /dance3 as they instruct you. The time to perform each step decreases with the quest's progression.

At the end of the lesson, the Dance Leader returns to their original position and you are able to select your reward: either the first or second dance emote from that race. Complete the lessons again to learn all the dances!

Festival Horse Races

Main article: Festival Horse Races
The Bree Derby
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
Beginning with Yule Festival 2012, Festival Horse Races no longer award special festival race tokens and are not necessary for obtaining festival mounts.
Race locations:
All-Shire Run - The Shire, just north of the Shire Homesteads
The Bree Derby - Bree-land at the Festival Grounds

A Bit of Drinking

Main articles: The Inn League and The Ale Association
The Inn League and The Ale Association are looking for a few good drinkers. Are you wishing to cause mischief at the smug inns of the realm or grant the wishes of those lonely drinkers who are simply in need of a good brew. Either way raise your mug and toast the festivities!
