Brewday Festival Feedback and Bugs 2023

    Brewday Festival is now active on Test!

    Make this Brewday Festival a memorable one! Follow the commotion of rowdy revelers located near every player city, and they’ll lead you 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.

    Of course, the festivities aren’t just limited to The Bar of Brell, as there are spirited celebrations and opportunities to raise a stein to Brell across Norrath, including Antonica, Kaladim, Loping Plains, Butcherblock Mountains, Enchanted Lands, and Thundering Steppes!

    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 drinks and bar bites to collect along the way.

    Please note that the Chronoportal Phenomenon and Brewday Festival are active at the same time on Test right now, and there are going to be a few days of these events overlapping on live, too. So, if you note any conflict between the two events occurring, please let us know!

    I just had a weird bug while serving beers in the basement. On the last round, last mob to serve, 2 beers short from getting the final update, every NPC lost the color cone for drunkenness (that being the one I was getting beer for and the last one I never touched). I spoke to Sam once again to get some beers back and they all got their cone back (including the ones I had sobered up already). I gave the one I was on his last 2 beers and could complete the quest without problems but it was weird, having all of them deactivate then reactivate like if I was starting a new phase.
    (I do have 600/625 alcohol tolerance, but I don't think you can sober up on that quest)
    (I swear I only drank one beer and no whisky!)

    going to be busy, busy, busy.

    thank you for all the nice things we got for Brewday, Kaitheel, but I wished we had gotten at least one outfit too.
    Sigh, maybe next TLE server will get one.

    Where are the Brew Day merchants on Varsoon? I'm looking all over Qeynos Capitol District with no luck.

    I thought for sure I would find them in Irontoes East, but no... and not in Lion's Mane Inn, either.

    I found the merchant in Freeport, but no luck at all in Qeynos.

    I asked a guard for "brew" and he was happy to point me to the spot in the Lion's Mane Inn where the "a boozy celebrator" is standing and drinking a pint or five. :D
  13. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    and in Freeport she is inside the "Seafarers Roost".

    Hope this is the right spot - I am trying to finish buying brews :
    1. Enter the city and purchase Gorowyn Pepper Swill from bartender Eurkon Al'ouz ( 2598, 86, 1325 ) COPY. If you don't fly, take the ramp up and then go left across three platforms to the bartender. ([COLOR=var(--theme-link-color)]Black Swill for Blackswell[/COLOR])
    It is not listed and I have tried for two days logging in and double checking but it is not listed so I can't complete the quest. If that can be addressed please. Or if someone else has had that problem that can help.
    love these events just not when they overlap. :)

    ok nvm I hadn't picked up the quest like I thought I had.
  16. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    that's what happens when so many festivals are all lumped together, you get mixed up with what quest comes from what festival, and did I pick it up or was that a different one? I am getting mixed up in my hat just thinking about it, and all that beer and such does not help.

    Pity poor Kaitheel; I remember reading once in his "Meet Your Devs! :D" interview that he was horrified when someone suggested a holiday every month... X-P

    Erollisi Day->Brewday->Chronoportal Day->Bristlebane's Day->Beast'r whatever->[back in the day; I miss that schedule: Oceansfull->Scorched Sky->Tinkerfest]->Nights of the Dead->Heroes' Festival->Frostfell.

    And some of them concurrent... X-P

    About the only time the poor sod gets nowadays is, I think, the month of September... :-/
