Some would call Erollisi Day, the celebration of love and Erollisi Marr, one of the best Norrathian holidays of the year. After all, you collect love notes, craft love-themed items and so on. Others, however, have called it the most evil holiday of the year.* Regardless of which point of view you hold, here is hoping that you can find some items of interest in this year's new Erollisi Day offerings.
*For the story "The Most Evil Holiday of the Year", check of the top part of the Erollisi Day article from 12 years ago.
Erollisi Day this year will run from February 8, 2024 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on February 21, 2024 on Live servers and Kael Drakkel. Varsoon has most of the event, except for Varsoon - The event is active with the following exceptions: Heal the Pain and Tainted Love (which become available with Shadow Odyssey mid content). Zarrakon will have special event merchants in Freeport and Qeynos with over 45 Erollisi Day themed house items and equipment pieces, including a mount.
Are You New?
If you're familiar with Erollisi Day, you can skip this section.
Various mobs around Norrath will drop love notes or hard candies. Generally, this tends to be mostly humanoid-type mobs, such as would be likely to have Lore and Legend quests, though there are a few odd ones, like shik'nar, that you wouldn't traditionally think of as intelligent. :D Additionally, a pack pony that has been upgraded via A Gathering Obsession Beyond the Grave" can bring back 100 mixed love notes and hard candies per 2-hour run.
The vendors for the event can be found in Qeynos Harbor and in East Freeport. In both cases, they are outside the building housing the city's mercenaries, and the NPCs in both cities have the same names.
The notes and hard candies can be: 1) used as-is as the primary ingredient in the holiday crafting recipes, 2) traded in to Heartgar MacInnes (Qeynos Harbor & East Freeport) for barbarian love notes, so they all can stack together for easier depot storage, 3) traded to Liannya Heartswell (also in Qeynos Harbor and East Freeport) to convert them to Erollisi Coins. Once they are converted to coins, they cannot be converted back to love notes, so make sure you're not mass-converting your entire stash into coins when you wanted to set some aside for crafting. Bank/depot the ones you want to craft with before you convert the desired number into coins.
The coins can then be spent at the two vendors, Douglas and Steven. (Imagine that, they are also in Qeynos Harbor and East Freeport!) While I am only presenting information on this year's new buyables, not the other offerings on the vendors, there are lots of lovely goodies from past years on them as well.
The wiki article contains more information on the various quests, collections, etc. and is a good guide for the overall event when paired with the quest tracker linked down near the bottom of the page.
Since there is already a large amount of returning content tied to this holiday, there is a mellow amount of new content for this year that includes: a new recipe book, a new drop quest, six new buyable items, one new achievement, and a couple new types of love notes and hard candies to go along with the achievement.
"Romantic Gifts to Craft XVII" is sold by the merchant Steven, and contains recipes for the following items:
|Lavender Splendor Fern
|Lover's Suite Circular Love
|Misty Pink Tile
|Mystic Magenta Blossom
|Pastel Stripes Curtain - Left
|Pastel Stripes Curtain - Right
|Purple Petal Honeycomb Block Set
|Tapestry of the Enthralled
|Tholuxe Paells House Floating Lantern
The merchant Douglas sells the following new items for Erollisi Coins.
|Bixel Honeyguard Illusion
|Blushbeak Stork (fluff pet)
|Crimson Mist Frame
|Paramour's Extra Large Woven Rug
|Passionate Plumedrake Patriarch (housepet)
|Wild Aeraquis Plushie
"Can't Fight This Feeling" is new drop quest available in the various versions of Shard of Love as well as Nektropos Castle: Love's Errand. As with other recent drop quests, you will have to watch your looting and examine the quest starter when it drops into your inventory. Once you accept the quest, the other updates will happen automatically as you loot mobs in the above-mentioned zones. Reward is this lovely Huntress' Mounted Quiver with a falling rose petal particle effect above the arrows:
Another year, another set of zones and new mobs to rob of their love notes! The achievement "Zimara to Love" will have you chasing notes and candies that can drop from mobs in Ballads of Zimara. Looting all of the required notes and candies will complete the achievement and grant you the suffix title of "the Love Sick"
Casdoe from Maj'Dul has once again updated her quest tracker with the new goodies for 2043. Snag it in XLS or PDF form and you will find it much easier to track the many quests and activities available to you during this limited-duration event.
