The Stream Team: The lure of LOTRO’s Yule festival

    
8

MassivelyOP’s MJ can’t help it: She loves holiday festivals! And LOTRO’s Yule festival is full of fun winter activities that reward participants with tokens to buy housing items and mounts. Do you want to build a snowman? Or maybe star in a play? How about try to out-eat a Hobbit? MJ will do all this and more when she returns to Winter-home. Tune in live at 4:00 p.m. and she’ll show off an efficient way to earn tokens for your favorite holiday goodies.

What: Lord of the Rings Online
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 4:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, December 26th, 2015

The show is over now, but we’ve embedded it here just for you. Don’t forget to check out past streams and playlists posted to our videos collection!

teppic zoward Styopa My way still worked!  I couldn’t let those other yahoos get in front of me! =P But yah, you can wait for them to clear before you start, but then you feel like you are losing because they are ahead lol

One of the best MMO festivals ever. The guy who invented theatre event is genius.  Though i’d like more plays!

zoward Styopa A hint about the eating contest (which was wrong in the stream) – the first table has no timer, it starts when you hand in the first quest, so you can eat whatever food whenever you like and then wait until there’s no competition (even do other stuff to let the debuffs wear off). Without competition you can easily do it every time. Also, mount between tables and you’ll get around the slow moving debuff.

Styopa …And, after getting the mounts on two alts I settled back and watched the stream … which I should have done in the first place, as there were some good hints on how to approach some of the quests.  To this day, I’ve never successfully finished the pie-eating contest, which MJ nailed during the stream.  Well done!

Styopa Yeah, it’s really easy to get the mount, and the outfits too. Plus you can get last year’s mounts and cosmetics as well. The daily reward (which requires just one task) often gives away quite valuable stuff, like 500 marks or stat tombs.

Styopa  Thanks for posting this!  I had already earned this mount on my festival alt earlier this week, and didn’t realize it was a 68% mount!  I actually logged in to check right after reading your post just to verify, and you are correct.  For those who don’t follow LotRO, the 68% mounts are faster than the regular ones, and almost all of them are ~US$20 worth of currency in the store, and most of the ones you can get in-game are *really* hard to get in some of the larger festivals.  I’ll be getting this one for a few of my alts now that I know this.  …and I’ll be back to check out MJ’s stream!

If you play lotro you should do this, particularly if you’re f2p.
2 days of yule dailies gets you the “more the merrier” achievement, which allows you to buy with tokens (that you easily have accumulated in 2 days’ dailies) the +68% speed mount.  Easiest in the game. (Normal mount is +62%).
