Anniversary Celebration.jpg

April 24, 2012, marks the fifth anniversary of the Lord of the Rings Online and as such special events took place from April 16 - May 9. In addition to returning events from previous years such as the Battle for Glorious Beer and Festival Horse Races, the fifth anniversary introduced several new events most of which centering on the theme of fireworks. Jointly with the celebration, Turbine introduced fifth anniversary gifts to reward players based on their sign-up date and a "Who is the Biggest LOTRO Fan Video Contest?"


Festival Grounds

Fifth Anniversary Gifts

Gifts are bestowed to accounts based on when they first went Premium or VIP. The gift boxes are automatically placed in the inventories of all characters on the account.

Festivities

Fireworks shows

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 periodically, 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 few days.

Honorary Postman

A strong wind blew away all the invitations that Percy Bywood was supposed to deliver for the Anniversary Celebrations. You must first obtain an Honorary Postman's Badge from the Bree Postmaster by completing A Postman's Badge. This quest is only available daily and additional badges are available in the LOTRO Store. Then Percy Bywood will offer you the Lost Invitations 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, two steeds and emotes.

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.


Keepers of Gifts

During this celebration, most creatures will randomly drop tokens which can be bartered for either gift boxes or Marks. The type of token that drops is related to the level of the creature that dropped it. The gift boxes contain rewards such as cosmetic items, food and potions.
