Description

Bingo Boffin is mostly-ordinary hobbit of the Shire who lives in his hobbit-hole in the northern district of Michel Delving.
He is the protagonist of the Ballad of Bingo Boffin, a series of quests related to Episodic Content. Every Wednesday during the original questline release, a new quest involving Bingo was unlocked and sees him start an adventure of his own. Today, all of the quests can be played without a weekly delay, although there are still mentions of "every Wednesday" in the quest text.
  • The message you receive in the mail - Letter 3 (quest)-icon.png Request for Assistance! - will get you started.
  • Bingo's Hobbit Hole - Boffin Manor - is found in Michel Delving, just north of the Town Hall.
  • Note that Bingo will only appear if you have NOT completed that weeks quest. Once you have completed the quest he will "phase out" -- not be visible to your character, but he will be visible to others who have not completed the Episode.
  • The episodic quests will always be available, so in case you missed one on its release day, you can pick it up whenever you want to. You could even decide to wait for some time and "save up" some quests and then play them all in a row.
  • As Bingo's adventures continue, he will be found in many different locations throughout Middle-earth. He will, however, never change his location stated in one of his quests, e.g. quests can always be picked up at the given starting location. See the quest pages for their respective starting positions.
  • If you are unsure where to find Bingo at any time, Bert Bartleby will provide information on his current location. He can be found near the stable in Michel Delving, at the western gate of Bree, next to the stable master in Ost Guruth, near the stables in Rivendell, Glóin's Camp, Gwingris, the Dolven-view, Caras Galadhon, the Haunted Inn, Haldirith, Harwick, Forlaw, Woodhurst, Avardin, Lhanuch, the Andrath and finally just outside Boffin Manor.
  • If you go inside Boffin Manor, you should be able to find Bingo's Notes, which allow you to relive any of the instances he encountered, including 'The Perfect Recipe' in Week 52.
