Festive Frostfell to all, and stuff.

Lucan and Antonia wish you all a Festive Frostfell. 8D

Each year, around this time, for better or for worse, there are a lot of changes. This is a time to reflect on the achievements you have made during the year. Additionally, this is a time to, temporarily, put aside differences, suppress enmity, and join together in the Festive Spirit. Continue reading ‘Festive Frostfell to all, and stuff.’

The Bookbinder, Rings, and Things

This past week has seen many changes. With the advent of GU 52, another questline opened, the Order of Rime (which I mentioned previously), Player-written books (with a quest for Sages) became available, and, today, the monthly “ring” event happened.

An Order of the Flame – To go.

I have spent a good majority of the time, since my last post, that I have been online trying to get that awesome looking flaming carpet. Unfortunately, due to the bug which prevents you from updating the Elemental Mystery questline, I haven’t been able to achieve the 50K Faction needed with the Order of the Flame (Not to be confused with the Order of the Blue Flame – which is something completely different and not associated with EQ2 in any way) in order to purchase it.

And without further ado, I bring you: GU51

You may no doubt have already realized, by the way your patcher seems to be taking forever to load, that SOE has snuck in the much awaited Game Update 51.

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane strikes again

The 31st of March marks the beginning of another seasonal Event: Bristlebane Day (week is more like it).

Bristlebane Day Impossible Items Collection

Bristlebane Day Impossible Items Collection

Bristlebane Day is the yearly occurrence which corresponds to April Fools Day. It is named after Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane, the patron diety of Thieves and Tricksters.

In celebration of Bristlebane Day, there will be several quests, each with its own unique reward. Some quests will only be available on April 1st. There will also be a collection quest, so look for purple “shinies” in Antonica, The Commonlands, Darklight Wood, Timorous Deep, or Greater Faydark. (See picture on right)

The Bristlebane Day celebration begins on March 31st and ends on April 9th. So head out, have fun and don’t be afraid to prank at least one person. Unless that person is me. In that case, be afraid. Be very afraid.

For more information about Bristlebane Day, head to EQ2Players.

Tilt one back with me.

As you may be aware Brewday, the yearly festival in Norrath which corresponds to St. Patrick’s Day, went live today and will continue until March 19th. Do the quests or just head out to Antonica to stare at Brell, the Avatar of Below.

And for those in need of a laugh, check out Mum’s humorous story over at EQ2 Traders.

Cheers!
