Brewday 2017 - Blending In?

Scarletwing had rather expected a lot of odd projects when she asked to be Niami DenMother's understudy in the fine art of Mischief. However, she had rather expected she would be watching Mum at work a bit more, rather than sent off "undercover" without any additional guidance. But when "Mum" says go, you go ... even when the outfit you are given to wear looks utterly ridiculous on you!

(Story to be continued/completed in the next day or two. I want to get the images up right away, and let the rest of the tale percolate a bit.)

Welcome to Brewday 2017! This celebration of Brell and the many brews that are found across Norrath will run from March 3 through March 17. (As "usual" with events other than Frostfell, the event should start at 1 minute after midnight Pacific on the start date, and should end at 1 minute before midnight Pacific on the end date.)

New Crafted

There are twelve new crafted items to be found in "Brewday Accoutrements to Craft VIII", which is sold in the Bar of Brell by Balin Copperfoot. The recipes will require a primary ingredient from either your upgraded pack pony or the "bountiful Brewday garden", which can only be seen when wearing the Improved Ale Goggles. (More details will be included in a below section regarding the gardens for those who are new to them.) The remaining ingredients for these items will all be tier 1 common harvests.

And yes, some of them are reskins (recolors) of items we already have -- because some folks have asked for things like that. :D

New Buyables

These twelve items are sold by Balin Copperfoot in the Bar of Brell for Beer Tokens:
Ashenfall Terramancer Plushie
4 tokens
Ashenfall Weaponsmith Plushie

Calcite Stalagmaw
(no-trade housepet)

Miner's Illuminating Gem*

Petamorph Wand: Malduran Slug

Seal of Maldura

*If you are too far zoomed in when you are previewing these items in-game, the "Miner's Illuminating Gem" isn't so illuminating! The gem part, which is actually a bright azure, looks dark and molten in a zoomed in preview, so be sure you zoom out for the full effect!

Brewcrew Appearance Set:

  • Brewcrew Buccaneer Boots - 3 tokens
  • Brewcrew Buccaneer Cap - 6 tokens
  • Brewcrew Buccaneer Shirt - 8 tokens
  • Brewcrew Buccaneer Sleeves - 6 tokens
  • Brewcrew Buccaneer Trousers - 8 tokens
  • Brewcrew Captain's Hat - 8 tokens

New Quest

There is one new quest this year, found next to the docks in Thundering Steppes. The reward is your choice of 10 beer tokens or a Captain's Serving Horn. While it can be done by any level of adventurer, be aware that if you've not obtained access to the Kunark sokokar posts (level 65+ crafter or adventurer quest), you'll have a bit of a swim in front of you in one of the zones you are sent to. :D

If you need additional information on all Brewday quests, the wiki's Brewday page has a good rundown, including which repeatable quests you can do for additional beer tokens. Casdoe of Maj'Dul has also updated her a Brewday quest tracker spreadsheet for folks to download. This year she has also added a .pdf version for those who prefer that to XLS files. This quest tracker is a godsend for those of us with multiple alts!


Good news for the TLE server! This year, all of the Brewday event is available, except for the "More Brews is Good News" collection, since it requires access to Maldura. Enjoy!

For Those New To Brewday

The Bar of Brell is located in several spots near major cities:

  • Antonica: Near the North Qeynos Gate
  • The Commonlands:: By the Freeport gates
  • Greater Faydark: At the stable near Green Knoll
  • Timorous Deep: In Gorowyn, on the docks, at 2362, 7, 1385
  • Frostfang Sea: In New Halas at -72, 147, -33

Inside the bar you will find a number of NPC questgivers, and a merchant, Balin Copperfoot. In addition to items sold for Beer Tokens (earned from the various quests, including the repeatable quests), Balin sells recipe books that are only available during this event. The all-class heirloom recipes require not only low-level (T1 & T2) harvestables, but also special Brewday harvestables as primary ingredients.

In addition to being able to obtain these harvestables from your Upgraded Pack Pony, once you have completed the Ale Goggles quest from Gillin Rockbreath (inside the Bar of Brell), you can wear these goggles to see special Bountiful Brewday gardens in Commonlands, Antonica, Greater Faydark, Darklight Wood, Timorous Deep, and Frostfang Sea. (Gardens are only available while Brewday is running.)
