Love Is In The Air – Erollisi Day Festivities #EQ2
It’s that time of year once again, where we annoy and disgust our closest friends by drooling all over our latest love interests. EQ2 started their Valentines Day celebrations this week although it was not without glitches. There is a long list of patch notes for today about them, in fact. Just one problem, the issues that I was experiencing don’t seem to be common nor are they listed here. I use the streaming client and I am unable to see any of the new Erollisi Day items – this includes the gazebo, the new divider, the crafted books, tables, chairs, and candles. I posted on forums but no one got back to me about any of the issues nor did I see anyone mention that they had the same problem so I really have no idea how to fix this. I’ve scanned twice without any luck. Hopefully the patch today brings some light to the matter. The items are in my inventory, they’re just not able to be placed / seen.
If you’re interested in a rundown of the events for 2011 you can find some great write-ups over on Eq2.wikia:
Shortly after you log in this Erollisi season, you will receive the quest My Romantic Reputation.
New with 2011 Erollis Day festivities is the collection quest, Romantic Flower Petals.
The merchants (Douglas and Steven) are once again to be found next to the mailboxes outside the taverns in East Freeport and Qeynos Harbor. New items this year include Blushing Lover, Puppy Love Plushie, Shard of Love Stag Plushie, and the amazing Pink Unicorn steed.
The quest Find ’em a Find, Catch ’em a Catch! returns again to Norrath (see 2009 section below).
New for 2011, Priest Aaronolis Swornlove offers the quest Total Eclipse of the Heart in New Halas. You will find Aaronolis near the shrine of Erollisi. You will need to complete his previous questline (Bouquet of Trust, Harts Full of Trust, and Sacrificial Trust) before he will offer it to you.
Since I skipped Erollisi Day last year almost all of the quests were new to me, and I had a fun time completing them all. I didn’t experience any of the other bugs that players had such as crashing in Halas or having issues completing quests – but again I’d really like to be able to SEE my rewards.
Do you have any special in-game plans for this Erollisi Day? Let me know in comments!
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
