Quest Involvement

The Festival Races

How does the race work?

  • The races are run by four contestants in the Shire and at Thorin's Hall. You may place wagers on which contestant you think will win by accepting a quest associated with the contestant you favour.
  • The races will run approximately every nine minutes, and you have a one-in-four chance of winning!
  • To truly place a wager, you must first turn in a Race Token to me. Read my next comment to find out about Race Tokens.

Where do I get Race Tokens to wager?

  • Race Tokens are used to place wagers on the racing contestants.
  • These tokens can be obtained from Race Traders:
  • The Race Traders will give you a quest, and turning in that quest gives you a reward of 2 Race Tokens to be spent at the races.
  • The token-giving quests can be completed once every two hours.

Note: Tokens can also be acquired with LOTRO Points in the LOTRO Store.
