    Every national Talk Like a Pirate Day, which is September 19. So I expect it once the servers come up from maintenance this coming Monday.

    The quest is lame. It took a long time to collect the debris, was too dangerous for my L16 Hobbit Minstel, and was not worth the cosmetic reward of of pirate hat and eyepatch. I threw away 46 bottles of ale and 23 crates of cram because I could not even sell the flotsam. It was not worth doing.

    This was certainly active yesterday, as i was swimming across the Brandywine, and when i reached the coast, the bottles of cram or whatever, and treasure chests were all active, and i remembered this quest.

    L16? I started a bunch of toons on a new server, none were higher than lvl 6, so I was stuck doing this quest on a lvl 6 Burg. It took me 2 hours to complete it. No problem collecting crates Shire-side of the river... until I crossed into Evendim... everything targeted me from half way across the map after that. I died four times total while swimming up the middle of that river on my way up to the NPC.

    Oh yeah, and something to file under "really odd": When I clicked on Revive after dying the first time, instead of popping me back up where I died like a normal Revive is supposed to do, it teleported me 2 maps away instead, from Evendim all the way back to the milestone I had set in ARCHET (yeah, lag is nothing compared to essentially rubberbanding across 2 maps!). And worse, IT STILL USED UP MY REVIVE FOR THE HOUR. Guys... come on now... I'm sorry, but if I'm teleported 2 maps away from where I died, that's NOT a revive... that's a defeat and a teleport.

    If I thought I'd have gotten a response of anything other than WAI, I probably would've /bugged it...

    In any case, though it took 2 hours and 5 repeated and unbelievably aggravating one-way trips, my lvl 6 Burg got the loot in the end... so... /happyface =)

    WAI.


    Because you were in a 'red zone', that is a zone which is SIGNIFICANTLY higher level than you are. Deaths in a red zone do not give you a revive option, and you are forced to either retreat directly to your RACIAL starter (do not pass go, do not collect 200 copper.), or get rezed by a healer in person.

    Yes, those are hooded versions of the Inn of the Forsaken cloaks currently available via skirmish barter. If would-be pirates want their pirate hats to show though, the non-hooded versions are better. That means parting with a few IoF marks though, arr.

    So they do the special event on the day of maintenance? Seems unlikely to me. You're sure they won't do it on Sunday, like they did last year?

    It is active now, the cargo is strewn along the Brandywine, and the quest to start the search is near the Brandywine bridge in Buckland.

    Yes, he's there. Wasn't there a few hours ago. Thanks for letting me know!

    Thanks!

    I had no idea this quest existed. I now have a spiffy blue item level 45 BoA pirate hat, and the hat and eyepatch, and the separate eyepatch (which I'm currently wearing) from the quest reward vendor.

    I'd encourage everyone to take part in the event. This is the only way to get these the 4 cosmetic pirate items outside of the lotro store until next year
