It’s not as much wacky fun as the Harvestmath event set for later this fall, but the Farmers Faire does treat participants in the Bywater festivities to a round of goofy quests and challenges, including feeding the mayor, racing horses, trying not to fall down while you dance, and fishing in the Bywater pond. But the best is unquestionably Sandson’s Egg Scramble, which asks you to chase chickens to collect eggs. As one does.
The Farmers Faire in LOTRO actually made our top 10 list of MMO celebrations that didn’t rip off real-world holidays earlier this year: “Summer is a prime candidate for made-up MMO holidays, seeing as how few actual major holidays exist on our calendar in this span,” MOP’s Justin wrote. “And so LOTRO shoe-horned in a medium-sized event that revolves around Hobbits and (of course) food. Get on board with scrambled eggs and delicious mushrooms, and you’ll be in for a tasty treat of a festival.”
Standing Stone says this year’s event will conclude on September 9th.
