Erollisi Day 2010

Still juggling your Frostfell, Kelethin City Festival and Moonlight Enchantments items? Think you have enough house space for all the new house items, at least until the expansion launches in a few short weeks? Think again, as the season of overlapping events is not yet over! {manic grin}

Along with another City Festival due at the beginning of February (1st through 7th, we suspect), February 4th marks the start of yet another holiday containing lovely crafted, quested and vendored goodies!

Ah, Erollisi Day - letters from secret admirers, fresh-cut roses to harvest and hand out in abundance, grown men and women making fools of themselves, love notes and candies to snag from unsuspecting mobs, pickup lines to practice, and more -- all in the name of the departed goddess of love, Erollisi Marr.

Various quests from past years will return, along with some new ones. Expect to see a new reward from the "Find 'em a Find ..." quest, as well as instructions for continuing on to some new (combat-required) quests that will grant you a couple lovely new house items.

Erollisi Day events will be activated on February 4 and turned off on the morning of February 16th (which is the pre-order launch date for the expansion), but the E-Day events can still be subject to change. As with last year's events, you can continue to craft these recipes after the event has ended, if you have managed to stockpile the love letters and hard candies (which will stop dropping when the events are turned off).

How It Works

Two vendors are found in Qeynos Harbor and East Freeport, named Steven and Douglas. They sell a lot of lovely romantic items at special prices (see below). In addition, Steven sells the level 2 artisan recipe books from past years events: "Romantic Gifts to Craft", which contains 14 recipes for any artisan to craft and 2 tinkered recipes, "Romantic Gifts to Craft II", featuring another 15 items (including one tinkered one),and, last but not least, the brand-new "Romantic Gifts to Craft III" which contains 18 amazing new items to craft. Trust me when I say the art department did a phenomenal job with these, especially considering all the other events on their overloaded plates right now!

Like the Nights of the Dead crafting at Halloween time, this crafting will require special dropped primary items as well as common (tier 1 & tier 2) resources.

Yep, once again, you get to run up to intelligent creatures that are cooing happily over love notes and candies ... and kill them so you can have them all for yourself!

Love Notes and Hard Candies

Candy hearts with cute messages on them, Valentine love notes written on small pieces of paper -- It seems that the intelligent/humanoid types in EQ2 have some similar ways of celebrating this holiday of love. Humanoid mobs (the same ones that drop status loot and lore & legend bits) have a chance drop a love note or hard candy as a body drop (this means the mob can be grey and still drop it). This year, however, there's a twist or two!

These little testaments of love have two uses, and this means you may be at war with yourself over whether you're going on a buying or a crafting spree. First, you can hand them in to Liannya Heartswell (the Romantic), for special coins that are used to buy many lovely romantic items sold by Steven and Douglas. The second use is, yep, you guessed it, as the primary ingredient for these special recipes.

Since I know most folks want to see the newest items first, I won't torment you any longer. Without further ado ...

Romantic Gifts to Craft III

Basic Info

This new recipe book is found on Erollisi Day vendor Steven for 1g 1s 50c, requires level 2 artisan to scribe, and is no-trade. Recipes are difficulty level 10, which should be doable by even a beginning artisan. Completing the pristine bar of the combine on these items will yield either 2 or 3 items, depending on the recipe. House items include 15 rent status reduction.

(Size comparisons of the items will follow later, as I still have to find time to drop in the recipes to link them to)

Romantic Gifts to Craft

Basic Info

The original recipe book, which is returning again this year, is called "Romantic Gifts to Craft" and it costs 1g 1s 50c from NPC Steven, one of the Erollisi Day Gifts vendors. It requires level 2 artisan to scribe and is no-trade. The fourteen artisan recipes are then scattered across several pieces of crafting equipment, based on item created, and will be a difficulty level 10 combine. The two tinkering recipes are skill 30 tinkering combines. Other than the requirement of any love note or any hard candy (interchangeable), these items will require tier 1 common ingredients and tier 1 fuels. Items created will be tradeable house items with 15 rent status reduction per item. Yields will be from 1 to 3, depending on item and quality. (The lounges are 1-2, the rest are 1-3.)

Other Little Details

  • The two tinkered items can be crafted by nontinkers, but since you will not have access to the tinkering reaction arts, and the difficulty is rated as "very hard", you will have difficulties crafting one of these if you are not a tinker.
  • The "blooming With Love" roses have a right-click option to make them "bloom", each with a unique particle effect.
  • Unlike the Frostfell food, you cannot "take a serving" of the cookies or Marrispan.
  • The cookies and Marrsipan require vanilla bean, a vendor-sold item.

Romantic Gifts to Craft II

(Folks who scribed the book in past years will find it in thier recipe books as "More Romantic Gifts to Craft!")

You want information on the new stuff, though, don't you? These will be a lot like the items from the other book, although some will require T2 common harvests instead of T1 commons.

No, I didn't miscount, that is only 13 items. The other two items are dress clothing items.

Added Notes

  • The Love Letters and Love Notes have a particle effect that can be turned on and off. Click on the icons above to see images of them with and without the effect activated
  • The Vial of Passion has a particle effect on it (it cannot be turned on/off)
  • The dressing room preview of the ring does not show the rust. As you can see if you click through for a larger view of the item, however, it is very rusty when placed. Durn gnomes. Also note that if you are not a tinker, you will not have any available reaction arts when you craft this item, so don't be surprised if you can't pristine it without being a tinker.
  • The rug has a visible bottom, and geometry. This means it will show a graphic from underneath, if it is raised above floor level, and that it can/will support players, furniture, etc., even when raised off the floor
  • The particle effect on the knolls doesn't display in the dressing room preview mode, but Kaisha tweaked the icons according to the actual look.
  • The tapestry is anchored so that it sticks out perpendicular to the wall instead of lying flat, like most of our tapestries
  • The Gift of the Libertine has a pink heart particle effect swirling around it when placed

But Wait, We have More Eye-Candy!
