Fall Festival is running this year from [dunno yet]. This guide will help you find all the events available. The primary currency of this festival is Fall Festival Tokens. Collecting these can help you buy the goodies listed in the rewards section below.

If you plan to spend any time in The Haunted Burrow event, you may want to hold off buying a lot of items. There is a chance to earn them, from the special chest inside the burrow, freeing up your tokens to buy other goodies! The quests are mostly broken up into four major regions in Middle Earth.
  • Bree Festival Grounds (24.7S, 51.6W Breeland)
  • Thorin’s Hall (13.48S, 103.2W Thorin’s Gate) – in the underground Tavern
  • Duillond (24.6S, 93.1W Ered Luin)
  • Shire Party Tree (29.85S, 71.48W Shire)

Also the Fall Festival ends the quest of the Travelling Farmer. This is a quest for those with the farming profession and you had to have started this quest in the summer in order to collect your reward in the Fall Festival.

The Haunted Burrow
The Haunted House in the cellar of Bag End and is full decorated haunted house style. This is not to be missed! Before you can enter, there is a short quest chain you must complete.
  1. A Cellar Door Appears
  2. Quest Starter: Opal Goodbody (29.S, 71.6W, The Shire)
    -Level: 10
    -You are sent around the area to ask about the new door that has appeared going into the lower part of the Hill. You are first sent to Lobelia and then to Gaffer Gamgee.
  3. Bilbo’s Letter
  4. Quest Starter: Gaffer Gamgee (30.2S, 71.5W, The Shire)
    -Level 10
    -Pre-requisite: A Cellar Door Appears
    -Bilbo appears to have left a letter in the care of the Gaffer and you ask if you can share it with Lobelia. After basically bugging the snot out of Lobelia she tells you that the letter says Bilbo left her the spoons and they are the key to the cellar.
  5. The Haunted Burrow
  6. Quest Starter: Lobelia Sackville-Baggins (29.4S, 71.3W, The Shire)
    -Level: 10
    -Pre-requisite: Bilbo’s Letter
    Rewards: 3 Fall Festival Tokens
    -The entrance to the cellar is directly below Lobelia near Opal Goodbody at 29.6S, 71.6W, The Shire. Once inside you are transported into a haunted house. Things will pop out and scare you, bookshelves reveal secret passages and running into cobwebs will temporarily blind you. It really is very well done! Your goal is to find Lobelia in this maze of a cellar. She’s not far inside but can be easily missed if you take a wrong turn and get lost! When you enter turn right and she’s right around the corner cowering (she’s also marked on the map below). Lobelia runs off terrified and you are instructed to talk to Opal Goodbody outside about the Haunted Burrow.

Haunted Burrow Quest Map
After completing this chain a bunch of quests outside the burrow will open up that are daily and repeatable. Please refer to this map (click to view larger) of the cellar and locations of all the quest objectives.



The Haunted Burrow is made up of a Main Cellar (center portion of map) and 4 wings: Cobbwebbed, Creeping, Basement and Attic. There are entrances to all the wings from the Main Cellar, however only the Attic and the Basement exit back into the Main Cellar. The Cobbwebbed Wing connects to the Creeping Wing and the Creeping Wing connects to the Basement. That means if you need to just go to the Cobwebbed Wing for something, you will be forced to also go through the Creeping Wing and the Basement before you can get back out to the Main Cellar.

This makes it a bit tricky for timed quests if you don’t know the quickest route in and out. For timed quests like “Stroll through the Haunted Burrow” and “Race Through the Haunted Burrow”, it is suggested to take the following path:


Doing the Attic first is ideal as the exit back into the Main Cellar is near the Cobbwebbed Wing door and we already know that entering the Cobbwebbed Wing forces you to go through all the other wings in order to exit back into the Main Cellar. This is the fastest route through all the wings.

You are to go in and scare the 6 hobbits you previously saved with “The Great Hobbit Rescue”. Near the hobbit will be a bag/bucket/jar that you activate to scare the hobbit.See our guide on the Ale Association.

Treasure Hunting in the Burrow
There is a fifth wing that you can find in the burrow although no quests will take you there. You will find it behind the mystery door (see the above map). Inside there are chests containing bonus Fall Festival Tokens and sometimes festival items (not the mount). These can be opened for bonus tokens once per hour. A debuff will be placed on your character counting down the time until you can collect again.

There is also a secret treasure chest in the basement that contains random assortment of festival goodies. This chest can only be used once per day and a debuff will count down when you can gather more treats!

It’s because of this chest that I recommend you hold off from buying all of the goodies from the vendor with your tokens right away. If you do this chest daily you’ll earn a bit of everything. Use your tokens for the race masks or your mount first (keep reading to learn more).

This secret treasure chest also is the only place you can find the festival skeletal horse. This horse has a low drop rate so it will take determination and a good deal of luck to pick this up.

The steed from the chest is 100 morale and 62% speed.

Other options for this steed or a similar look:
  • Skeleton Painted Steed – available in the store for 1495 TP
  • 100 Morale, 62% Speed
  • Painted Skeleton Steed Glowing Green – available in the store for 1295 TP
  • 250 Morale, 68% Speed
  • Marrow Painted Steed – random reward from lootboxes
  • 250 Morale, 68% Steed

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apples, Pumpkins, Scrolls and Geodes
In each of the four festival areas there is a Game-Master that will have a barter icon over his or her head. These folks are not difficult to find. They’re generally in the middle of the festival area.

Directly next to the game master there will be some sort of item that when you mouse over it you will see your cursor change to a loot icon. In Bree this is a pumpkin patch, in Thorin’s Hall it’s a geode box, Duillond has a scroll box and the Shire you will find an apple tub.

When you loot this item you will randomly receive one of three items. Barter your item to the nearby Game-Master for Fall Festival Tokens. The smaller or lesser of the items are worth 1 token, medium are worth 2 and larger items are worth 3 tokens. These are based on luck so just cross your fingers and click!

After receiving your item, you will find a debuff applied to your character that prevents you from picking up another of the same item for an hour. You can run to all four places and do each of these items as each has their own hour long buff.

Troves and Trickery
Tricksters of Middle-Earth send you off to perform tricks for various people in the area in order to earn treats. Each of these 4 quests are repeatable daily .

The targets are regular townsfolk and farmers around the area. They will have an in-progress ring icon over their head and if you speak to them, they will give you a hint which “trick” (otherwise known as an emote) they wish to see you perform.

If you want to try to figure out the riddles yourself, do not look at the tables below as it will give away the answers!
