I ***love*** festivals!!!!
I am a festival junkie!!! I ***LOVE*** them!!! But there are several things that bother me...
One is that the quests don't change. Could u make up some new quests for all of them, and then rotate them every 3 years or something to keep them fresh for us? Doing the same thing every year is static, and makes it hard to keep the excitement going.
Next, I believe it is the summer fest (with the drinking/food races). That fest is so stinkin' hard to get tokens for!!!!!!!!! WAY too hard!!! Many other fests give u gobs easily, but spending 13 hours in a day at the races to try to pick winners to get only a few tokens is rotten!!! And I did spend an exorbitant amount of time at them trying to get tokens for my 8 characters, but when all was said and done, I think only one or two of them had enough to buy the 300 items needed for the skill deed *sigh*. And as a result, I am dreading it this year :'(
Thirdly, could u plz fix it so that when we are in a fellowship, and we are collecting items at the fests, we don't have to click on the items to claim them? Ie. flowers we pick, snowballs, etc.
Fourthly, could u plz change the amount of mithril coins u are requiring to repeat a festival quest to one? It is just too expensive to use them to repeat quests the way they are now. I would gladly spend 10 mithril coins on 10 more tries to get a striped egg, but not on only two tries.
Fifthly, it would be so fantastic if u could give us more than one new cosmetic outfit/steed (like the yule fest steeds in 2012) at each fest? I am crazy about cosmetics too!! And am pretty disappointed that Lalia's market and the mannequins are just reusing cosmetics that u already have in other areas of the game :( So the only place to get "new" stuff is festivals. Hence, having like 3+ new outfits per fest would be grand! U could also then make more cosmetic vault space available too... Then u guys would make more money :D It would be a win/win!!
And I don't know what thread to post it, so I will post it here. In relation to cosmetics, I love that u gave us walnut brown dye with Helm's Deep!!! Could u please give us some for the Westfold and Eastemnet tiers too? Soooo many are on the Supreme tier that u can only get 5 every 18 hrs... maybe u could adjust those so that they are broken to the next highest tier to make in 5's like u did with the rest of the lvls, and just give us one new color for Eastement? I also am thrilled that different cosmetics dye to different strengths of color :D Great thinkin' there!
I would soooo enjoy seeing a new fest every month to two months!!! I know a lot of ppl can't stand them, and that's okay... they don't have to attend :) But it is so much fun for so many of us to go to them and get new cosmetics and steeds, and skill deeds as well as home items, and other goodies!! :D
Also... ***GREAT THINKING*** to so many of u that have posted previously on ur ideas for new fests and events!!! Boy oh boy, so much creativity!!! I hope LOTRO follows up on them!
Come on people, lets joust.
hear me out before you tear me apart about lore, we all ride horses and pony's, then war steeds further on, A side event, in a Rohan tournament theme, set up to battle each other on horse back and various other ways would be fun and kind of in the Rohirrim ball park, this would market Riders of Rohan expac's to the lowbies .
After all festivals are about taking a break from the grind,And A Rohirrim festival, having some fun and winning something new, would be cool.
and it would be interactive, like sparing (if it were able to be built of course).
