I don’t know about you guys, but I think that Turbine has really created a wonderful Anniversary Festival! All the fireworks are awesome! Not only do they add to the festive feeling overall, they are just a lot of fun to launch and beautiful to watch. Somehow they redesigned the fireworks and made them look very real. I can almost smell the sulfur when I stand around in Bree. The Fireworks Laden Horse (or pony in this case) launches real fireworks every so often, which is an awesome detail on an already beautiful festival horse. It takes a little while to get the 40 tokens for it, but it’s well worth it!
So far I’ve been having an iffy with the RNG. It hates me for some reason and I hate it back, so I’m not getting any luck with the nice horses that drop from the Lost Invitations quest. My eye is set on the Lotro Store, perhaps some day some nice guy at Turbine decides to put them up for sale. However I did manage to loot the /toast emote (on my hobbit, who is the emotes collector), so I guess it’s unfair to call myself totally unlucky.
With still a while to go with the festival, I’m not giving up hope entirely. In any case I love this horse, and I ride it all the time!
I also think the eyepatch is appropriate for a hobbit playing with fireworks.
