Bobbing for Pumpkins

The Fall Festival is in swing in the Shire, the Ered Luin, and in Bree.  You can almost smell the harvest brews and just about taste the baked treats.  Okay, that’s more than an exaggeration.

The Festival really consists of running around and knocking out a few quests each day, emoting at some NPCs and using objects here and there.  It’s not rocket science, but it will keep interested parties busy for about an hour each day.  I’m trying this out, just for grins.  You can get a statue or maybe another horse, nothing to so excited that you wet yourself.  Unless, maybe, you’re the type who has to redecorate your house every season, or has to own one of every horse in the game.

I don’t want anyone to misunderstand – I like the fact that the festival is in the game.  It adds a little depth, and offers some nice non-combat things to do.  It’s just not my thing.  However, I would suggest that anyone who wants to try out a festival get it in gear and explore this one, because the winter festival will probably coincide with the Siege of Mirkwood expansion.
