Lotro Yule Festival Guide 2014

This was first published on Dec. 17th, 2014.

The Yule Festival lasts this year from December 16th to January 15th. Here’s to some good holiday cheer, and enjoy the guide.

Quest List
Bree Quests

1. The Bree-fields Yule Run
Rewards: 3 festival tokens
Questgiver: Sally Threshing
Horse races are always fun!

  1. More Boar for Bree
    Rewards: 2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Sally Blackwort
    All I can say is that the Bree-folk love their meat. The festival cook got drunk and has lost the special boar meat for the festival. It’s up to you to go battle wolves to get it. The real question is this. How will the cook clean it? Surely it’s half eaten and covered in mud by the time you give it back to her…
  2. An Ailing Tradition of Ale
    Rewards:  2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Wim Wheatsheaf
    Yet again, the Bree-folk have had their provisions stolen. Only this time it’s ale. Go fetch.

Thorin’s Hall Quests
1. To the Horse-races
Rewards: coin scaled to lvl
Questgiver: Annar
This is one of those ping-pong quests.

  1. Snow for a White Yule
    Rewards: 2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Gloi
    Gloi is a very nice dwarf. A very kind and benevolent dwarf. Bree is all weird and sunny this winter (evidently climate change is a fearsome foe) so Gloi has decided that he will simply bring snow to Bree in his handy cart. Kind, but dumb. What he really needs is someone to go and collect snow for him. That someone is you.
  2. Dwarf-ice
    Rewards: 2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Imi
    Imi is the cook, and he has made a large number of desserts for the festival. Of course he ate them all, so he needs you to fetch some ingredients for him. Crossing a frozen lake this early in the winter shouldn’t be too hard, right?

Shire Quests
1. Yuletide Woes
Rewards: coin scaled to lvl
Questgiver: Bogo Chubb
The stableboy is terrified that Yule celebrations will be ruined because the dread Lobelia has managed to grab the position of party planner. A quick investigation will reveal that the dread Lobelia can be stopped! Taking this storyline will make Lobelia angry and we all know how fun that is. She jumps up and down, and her brow scrunches together, and sometimes she roars and breathes fire! 😀 It should be noted that completing this quest line will grant a Yule Tree for your yard.

  1. To the Horse-races
    Rewards: coin scaled to lvl
    Questgiver:  Baldo Mudfoot
    Another ping pong.
  2. Good Cheer and Warm Cider
    Rewards: 2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Samfast Longburrow
    Samfast is all set to make his special cider, only he has no apples.
  3. Ribbons and Bows
    Rewards: 2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Daisy Boffin
    It’s an official disaster! With no ribbons, how can anyone give out presents? What she needs is a hero to fetch her some ribbons and berries to dye it.
  4. The Delving Fields Yule Run
    Rewards: 3 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Carl Proudfoot
    Who doesn’t like horses? Watch out for that pine tree.

Ered Luin Quests
1. To the Horse Races
Rewards: coin scaled to lvl
Questgiver: Gelirdur
Ping pong!

  1. Wreathed in Fir
    Rewards: 2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Anglalaith
    This wreath maker has run out of branches. Can’t be Yule without wreaths!
  2. The Season of Merry-Making
    Rewards: 2 festival tokens
    Questgiver: Saervereth
    Saervereth is feeling sad this year. With so much to do, she can’t gather mistletoe, which sucks for everyone. She has decided to delegate the task to you.

Winter-home
Ah, welcome to Lotro’s most morally ambiguous town ever. Winter-home is all about one thing. Grinding. You better love those festival quests, because you’re going to do a lot of them if you want those tier three rewards. After completing 120 quests you will have unlocked all of the rewards possible, and a new character frame to put around your portrait. Yule frame is as shown below.
