Party Business

For those who might not have gotten the news, Turbine has released the schedule for the 2013 6th Anniversary and Spring Festivals. The Anniversary runs from Tuesday, April 16th until Tuesday, April 30th. Spring runs from Tuesday, May 31 until Tuesday, June 4th. I don't understand why Turbine has gotten into the habit of celebrating Spring so close to Summer, especially with the festival calendar the way it is - the 2013 festivals seem like they're going to stack on top of each other, just like they did last year. Not that I'm complaining (hey, free stuff is always good), but by the time it's all said and done, everyone is usually quite fatigued. I've been preparing for the inevitable load of free, cosmetic stuff headed our way by sorting out my vault and stocking up on other things I'll probably need. You know - Party Business!

All of my characters seem to be suffering from slit throats. One of the numerous cosmetic glitches that have weaseled their way into the game, it occurs when wearing headpieces of any kind and a gash opens up on the right side of the neck. I really hope this is addressed and fixed sometime soon, along with the "spaghetti legs" bug that occurs when wearing certain crafted Rohan  gear. They are nearly impossible to cover up and are in general very annoying - get this fixed, Turbine!

Enjoy the outfit!

  • Head: Voice of the West Hat, dyed Red (Ost Dunnoth Armor set)
  • Chest: Short-sleeved Summer Dress, dyed Red (Summer Festival Reward)
  • Back: Ceremonial Cloak of Mordirith's Bane, cannot be dyed (Epic Book Vol. 1 Reward, Lotro Store, Lock-Box Reward)

  1. Hehe, I got a good chuckle out of reading that you were preparing for festival... then seeing the next picture of you trying to guzzle the remains of a keg at the Party Tree. :)
