    Brewday Festival is now active on Test!

    Make this Brewday Festival a memorable one! Follow the shouts of rowdy patrons located near every player city to the festival's official brew house, The Bar of Brell. Once inside you’ll find plenty of holiday themed rewards, crafts, and adventures, both new and familiar, including Steinmaster Borric, a cleric of Serilis, who’s looking for some help assembling an altar for the Duke of Below. And for those who plan on celebrating by patronizing as many of Norrath’s drinking holes as one can, this Brewday, keep an eye out for different bar bites to collect along the way.

    I've crafted each of the items in the new recipe book. All the items use the correct fuel for the crafting station they use, and they place and scale properly.

    Still wading through things, but here's the first ...

    The Brewday Reveler's Hat and Finery are tradeable, attuneable. The Brewday Reveler's Cloak is no-trade.
  4. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    yay I kept on looking at the forum to see if we get to start on Brewday yet :D

    Kaitheel ? what other zones do we need on Kaladim to get Brewday ?
    I thought EoF would be enough to get this festival on Kaladim , the relies is only delayed 5 days.

    Could we get an option to skip Snoogle's texts please? We've been doing his quest for years and well, I never read the text anymore and clicking and clicking and clicking is annoying.

    Could we get for Brewday a second vendor who sells only the new buyables like for Tinkerfest and NoTD, please? List isn't supra-long for Brewday yet but it's getting there!

    They already found everything while I was busy cleaning my IRL house so I'll check scaling to 120. Let you know if I have problems.

    When I zoned out of the bar, there was a ship in the trees outside of the bar. Giggle saw the same thing while going out of Qeynos. I went onto the ship then back to the ground and my char disappeared (I couldn't see it). Swimming to blackburrow fixed that. Niami's saying that once in a while the Kylong ship shows up in the trees outside of NQ. It's highly weird.

    To clarify this, the above is the buyable trio, and they should be consistent across the three. The Brewday Reveler's Cape is the collection reward and also no-trade, so the cloak being no-trade as well is likely a copy pasta issue :D

    "Slabberjaw" Hero? -- is that supposed to be a Slobberjaw? :D

    You say potato, I say... Oh yeah, that's a typo.

    Pressed into the Brewcrew - Requires Kylong Plains
    Black Swill for Blackswell - requires Timorous Deep
    Ale in a Day's Work – requires Moors of Ykesha
    Thurgadin Ice Brew – requires Moors of Ykesha

    Definitely not this year, but I'll add it to the feedback for the future. The NoTD and Tinkerfest lists had become very overwhelming, and this kind of polish certainly helped with that. I agree, but it's not always as easy to untangle older stuff.

    No biggie, list is still manageable for Brewday anyway but as events go old, list becomes more overwhelming and way, the "new npc-old npc" system is really nice.
  14. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    thanks for the answer Kaitheel sounds like next year if Kaladim still is here.
    But please don't forget us City Fest and Moonlight Enchantment .
  15. Kaitheel Developer


    I can confirm I've got Kaladim down for their first City Fest (Neriak) on 3/1 and Moonlight Enchantments on 3/20!

    Let me take a look, I think I can add a few options along the conversation that will trim it down.

    "Hammer Barrel Chambers", zone for "Deep Within Hammerhall".
    I, once more, forgot to harvest the hammer. I'm pretty sure it already happened to me during previous years but can't swear it 100%. Anyway, I zoned back in to get the hammer but the last chamber was closed (and every NPC was already dead so I couldn't open it again). I used my instance reset to enter it again and I killed everything to enter the last room again, but this time, Brewmaster Thifgur didn't aggro and I only had to gather the hammer to be done.
    If it did happen to me during previous years, I never had to reset the instance. it was really unsettling to have to do that. Could we have the last room unlocked if everything is dead, please?


    So far, between that quest and the "Rummage for Answers" quest, I only got coins from 120 NPC and bags.

    ooooh, thanks Kaitheel! he's driving me nuts! *hands out a plate of Dreamweaver's iksar gravlax (it's brand new! I hope you'll like it!)*

    The new prefix and suffix titles from this event both work fine.

    Overseer series completes properly and allows me to pick up the starter again right away.
  20. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    Caveat: I know this won't be fixed anytime soon, I'm just getting this in here so folks know it is a known cosmetic issue.

    Since they've not done character art specifically for event overseer agents the new agent looks like a kerra, not a gnoll :D

    (I love the flavor text!)
