Spring Festival Goodies


When I was a younger elf, as festivals arrived, I would take a vacation from questing and adventuring and spend time soaking in everything there was to do at festival. Now, as a slightly older elf… I find that I do the same. :D My two 2012 posts that went into more detail about the events of Spring festival (including Shrews, Flowers, Maze, Bullroarer’s Run) are at Steed-of-jester and Spring-shrews-shrews-shrews!.

For certain, Spring festival has a lot of goodies to acquire! Looking at the list from the vendor, I think that everything that has ever been available during Spring festival might still be there, minus all the horses from every year. For interest, this article will be a check list of all the goodies.

New goodies for 2013 include Warsteed Cosmetics, a Horse, 4 Cosmetic pieces, 3 Cook recipes.

There are two barter places for Spring festival: the Bree flower guy and the Spring Rewards Vendors (who are in the festival dance areas). All the vendors, not the flower guy, have the same goodies. There is so much stuff available from the Spring Rewards Vendor that I will break the list into (1) Horses, (2) Cosmetics, (3) Craft Recipes, (4) Housing and Yard, (5) Misc Emotes and Consumables.


Goodies from the Bree Flower guy:
The Flower guy’s list is fairly short. He has 2 pieces of Lissuin Warsteed cosmetics, the Steed of the Jester (which was found only in the random boxes last year), and 3 gift boxes. The gift boxes have random stuff in them, including the low tier cook tart recipes and other forgettable odds-and-ends. The gift boxes also have randomly available a FULL set of Lissuin Cosmetics and the Steed of the Jester. I have no idea what the odds are because I avoid random if I can help it.

Spring Rewards Vendor (Horses):
The other two pieces of the Warsteed are bartered with Spring Leaves. The 2013 horse is the Lissuin; the 2012 horse is the Simbelmyne. You can see all of the festival steeds at All the Steeds /festival-steeds. The Lissuin Warsteed pictures were in the article last week at Spring-lissuin-warsteed.

Spring Rewards Vendor (Craft Recipes):
The three cook recipes listed here are new. They are tarts for the top three tiers. The lower tier recipes can be found as fairly common random loot in the flower gift boxes mentioned above.
The farmer potted flower recipes make housing decoration items.

Spring Rewards Vendor (Housing and Yard):
So many housing items… so little house.

Good-to-know information for these 4 maps: These four maps are part of a “map collecting deed”. You don’t have to keep the map; you only have to hold it in inventory a moment to advance the deed. The maps are not bound. The deed completion has rewards, including ~10 TP. These four maps are only available during Spring. Each festival has maps that contribute toward the deed. The maps have been around for more than a year so it is likely someone might have a map that you can borrow to help finish the deed.

Spring Rewards Vendor (Misc Emotes and Consumables):
Yeah… a few things didn’t fit neatly into the previous categories.

At Anniversary festival, there were scholar recipes to make fireworks. A material requirement is “Piles of Mysterious Powder”. It would be simpler to just buy the fireworks from a vendor for a few silver. However, to be fair, fireworks are only sold during Anniversary festival so if you absolutely had to have fireworks now and no one would give you stockpiled ones, this is one way to get them.

DRAGON and Doom-shrooms are both consumable deeds. Consume 300 of these and you can learn the emote/action as a permanent skill.

Sack of Petals throws petals at your target; this version is a permanent reusable sack in your inventory. It is also available as a deed reward during Yule festival.

Springfest Brew Mug is a force emote on those around you. This one is not a consumable deed like the previous ones.

Extra Delicious Tasty Biscuits, when used, open up a fortune, like a fortune-cookie. The item is a piece of paper in your inventory. There are 50 fortunes total and make up 5 deeds of 10 fortunes each. The fortunes are not Bound and can be traded. Once held in inventory the deed advances. Look to your friends and the AH if you are embarking on trying to get the 50 randomly selected fortunes for deed. Each deed rewards a special title.

Cold Fish grants the emote /fishslap

Slapper Fish is a weapon slotted item. It looks like a fish.

Danania! In the photo under "bree flower guy stuff" what are you wearing? It's a lovely outfit!

Tomeoric said...

@Alysia - that is the Harvest-Brew dress... that will (hopefully) be back at the Harvest/Fall festival later this year.

Danania Darzil said...

I would NOT want to go up against Tomeoric in a lotro fashion trivia contest. He is right of course. :)

Danadelion is wearing
* Harvest-Brew Dress, dyed red - bartered at Fall festival 2012
* Extravagant Festival Cap, dyed red - Yule Festival quest reward for Helping the Rich
* Basket of Apples - bartered at Fall festival

Zyngor said...

Tomeoric is always trying to "borrow" my dresses. When he actually does return them, they often have cherry tart stains all over!

Nice job with charting out the rewards. I still need to pick up the new cook recipes, for craft completionist sake. I might try to get a Jester or two for lowbies.

Tomeoric said...

@Zyngor - only because I don't want to get stains on my nice armor. Your dresses make nice bibs. The question should be: what are you doing with so many? =)

Lilikate Buggins said...

Thanks for posting this guide Supergirl! I see you had more success than I, For every time I go to visit the Enormous Pesky Shrew some kind soul puts the boot in.

Danania Darzil said...

@ Anonymous... ywvm!

Danania Darzil said...

lol @ Zyngor and Tomeoric. :D
Cat fight! rawrrr...
Yall are a hoot and a half.

Danania Darzil said...

@ Lilkate ... I'm glad if it could be of help to others.

I lured the Enormous Pesky Shrew over with my giant pretzel. Gotta be careful as he doesn't know when to stop chomping and he might take off a finger ;)

Alysia said...

Thanks Tomeoric and Danania! Now to wait until I can get my own...

Cari Mac said...

@Tomeoric and @Zyngor you can never have too many dresses, and using them as a bib is really mean.

Tomeoric said...

*panics* Zyngor made me do it!

Danania Darzil said...

Don't you believe it. No one can make a hobbit warden do anything he doesn't want to do. :)
