The Highest of Silly Days - April 1st Only!

April Fools Day marks the Highest of Silly Days for the Bristlebane Day celebration. Two quests are only available on this day, both given by the sphinx Imenand just off the dock in the Enchanted Lands. Test your brain by trying to solve his many riddles and take a gamble at your choice of house pet rewards.

You may have noticed the bunnies that have appearaed all over Norrath. Today, and only today can you collect the silly wabbits and earn three Bunny Achievements!

Players can also harvest from the Jester's Superior Gardens on this day, which are found in Enchanted Lands. These gardens give harvests from every holiday event that has crafting, so be sure you have a lot of backpack space to spare! Those wanting to sneak in some mid-year Frostfell crafting can do so as well. Check the Marketplace for some special Bristlebane Day promotional items!

The Highest of Silly Days starts as soon as it's April 1 in Pacific time, and goes until 11:59pm PDT on April 1st. Enjoy today's special loading song as well after the jump!

The City Festival Starts Tonight!

Tomorrow is the beginning of April, bringing us the Qeynos City Festival! The festival begins on April 1st at 12:01am PDT and runs until April 7th at 11:59pm PDT. You can find the Far Seas Caravan in Antonica just beyond the bridge to North Qeynos.

There are no new items available this month. Visit the Far Seas caravan merchants to see all of the local specialities and other festival goods.

An Aether Race will also be available in Antonica during the festival. Participate and achieve a time of 134 seconds or less to earn the Bridge Buzzer prefix title! Begin the race by speaking to the referee near the Coldwind Point Lighthouse.

As a reminder, April 1st is also the Highest of the Silly Days and there are special Bristlebane Day events happening, including bunny collections!

The Joke is on Norrath.. Bristlebane Day Returns!

Bristlebane Day returns tomorrow, Friday, March 28th, and runs through Thursday, April 10th. There's new recipes, new rewards, and a new event currency! Keep your eye out for interesting Patchcraft mobs all over Norrath and earn your Patchcraft Slayer achievements! All your favorites from last year return, some with new rewards.  

On April 1st things really get hopping! New this year... bunnies. Everywhere, bunnies. You may have been stumbling over them around the world, and on April 1st you can collect them for three new achievements. Returning are the Jester's superior gardens in Enchanted Lands, giving harvestables from all holidays. Frostfell crafting stations will also pop up in Enchanted Lands on the Highest of Silly Days. There are two quests offered exclusively on April Fool's Day, so you'd best like riddles if you want to add to your dice collection!

Read all about it in our Bristlebane Day Guide! And if you've got a lot of alts, use our Bristlebane Day Quest Tracker to help keep track of them during the event.

Restored High Keep Guild Hall on Test

While running around on Test yesterday, we were notified by Kuulei that there was a new guild hall available for touring on the Antonica and Commonlands guild hall bells: Restored High Keep.

Not much is known about it yet, aside from the fact that it is the entirety of the High Keep zone. Afista of EQ2 Design Gallery has posted images of the entire place over on her site. We did ask Senior Producer Holly Longdale about it and she responded "It's coming out the end of April. We're working on the details of how it's acquired at the moment."

Could it be a Marketplace-sold prestige guild hall, akin to the Palatial halls on EverQuest? Looks like we'll find out sometime in April! In the meantime, you can tour this hall on the Test server, but the exit doesn't function so have your Call to Home spell ready to get out!
