Spring Festival 2012

Turbine finally released the spring festival, so I decided to have a look at the new horse, see if the last maps for the Cartographile deed were there and see if there are any new cosmetics.  I was pleasantly surprised by the cosmetics!  I’ve been on a Lotro hiatus due to dissatisfaction with aspects of the game, but this will be enough to draw me back for a bit. 🙂

They’ve come out with aSimbelmynë theme, which is appropriate as we head towards Rohan.  I’m a bit ambivalent about the horse but am pleased to see a proper saddle back.  The detailing is also quite nice.  Luckily I had some leftover leaf tokens so was able to buy the dress right away:

They also made a new flower circlet which I like quite a bit more than the old one.  I had to use Lotro’s standard dressing room to get a screenshot so the quality isn’t very good. (I really ought to stop being lazy and get a plug in for a larger dressing room window!)  Though taking screenies of cosmetics always makes me want a better computer and a bigger monitor as others out there get some really sharp pictures ingame. 😛  There’s also a matching tunic, cloak and floppy sun hat plus last year’s spring cosmetics.

The final maps are there, so the Eriador Cartographile deed will finally come to an end, yay.  i’ve yet to check out any of the quests and see if there is anything new.  The shrew stomping has returned as well and I shall be spending a fair bit of time there, finishing out my deed.  There do not appear to be any new consumables thankfully so none of those to grind out!
