    So what exactly is 25% of the Summer festival? 25% chance it will be on those days?

    Thumbs up Summerfestival hurra!

    Dear Frelorn,

    Thank you for the Summer Events schedule. It is a great help to me. Keep it up with the good communication to the players.

    The 25% seems to be a mistake "25% Hobnanigans" & ""25% Summer festival".

    I am sure we get 100% Hobnanigans and 100% Summer festival.

    Meaning 2x 100% fun to me.

    He he. Something didn't make it when the publish button was hit. I read that as 25% xp boost, Summer Festival

    At least we only have one weekend of hobspam per month. Those 10 day periods were maddening.

    Maybe, but I've not seen any announcements anywhere.

    Will there be no Farmer's Faire this year? Or perhaps that will be in September?

    If I recall correct, it's been in September the past two years. So I'm thinking yes it will be this time around too.

    Nice to see the dates for Summer Fest!

    Thank you, Frelorn! (And thanks for locking last year's thread. May it now rest in peace since some of us made it do double duty.)

    Only four my 19 main account characters don't have a full stack of hob field maps by now--that's just crazy to me, and I do play hobnans when I have time to.

    I still hold out hope that they'll knock the in game notifications down to the level they have for the Treasure Camp. Time will tell.

    Riding through the Shire yesterday I saw one of the NPC's for the Bingo Boffin episodes so I suspect 16.2 is coming monday.

    I decline the quest each time, and thus have no maps. 'Crazy' is collecting all the maps for no reason. I thought bag space was premium.

    Thanks for the update

    Are we likely to see the Tale of the Shipwrecked Mariners this year, or any time in the future? It's one I've never done, missed it last time because I didn't know about it.

    That small event is in September during International Pirate Day.

    Around Sept 19th for several days.

    I didn't collect them for no reason. I've used the hob maps as a free insta travel for many reasons. I never said that full stack of maps was getting dusty--it's partly why having the full stack even with the frequent use I sometimes put them to made it seem all the more outrageous (though in my favor).

    One thing I want to point out is they only recently added the swift travel from Bree to the festival grounds. I initially thought it was going to be a during festivals only option like the other festival grounds' steeds. When I was in Bree last week and noticed it was still available, I started dumping maps on my alts that can get to Bree easily as I've logged into them.

    I can see why it would seem crazy if one:
    - no longer has any quests or deeds left to do in the nearby areas the hob map can insta travel you closer to
    - doesn't/need to help friends/kinnies do the same
    - only ever goes to the entirety of the festival area when festivals are active
    - doesn't have the auto accept toggled on for quests *
    - has the race, class or rep related Bree travel skill, or even Bree milestoned
    - isn't a VIP
    - hasn't bought more bag/vault space (easier to do with sales and/or the "free" 500 TP one gets as a VIP each month)
    - doesn't RP
    - other reasons I can't think of off the top of my head at the moment.

    * If you're not familiar with how auto accept works, declining isn't an option because the hob quest is auto added so long as there is an open quest slot in one's log. It's more steps to cancel than it is to either take the map to vendor/destroy, or "finish later" so the quest sits in your log preventing later triggers until next log/level or the festival is over.

    The Bingo Boffin episodic storyline is something that will continue to evolve. July 22nd is the starting date but it will evolve over time as part of the game. It isn't really an event with a set end date.
