BRISTLEBANE DAY EVENTS

Where to find them and how to do them!

Sometimes, we get taken to school. Sometimes, we all just play the fool! - Bonzz

BRISTLEBANE DAY

The first Bristlebane Day Event was introduced circa 2011, with new ones added in 2013 & 2022.

These events resurface every year, in conjunction with April Fool's Day (April 1st), some of which remain active for about two (2) weeks.

Originally, on April 1st (and only on April 1st), there were expansion-wide pranks played on the Players by the Dev's. Normally this was in the form of changing your character... such as changing everyone's race; changing the name of your class (i.e. Paladin's became Boy Scouts); changing everyone's sex; changing the music you hear when you launch EQ; and... one time... changing everyone into a red stick figure (believe it or not, it reduce lag significantly)!

These days, the 'Dev Pranks' are limited to just the Guild Lobby, where these 'pranks' rotate all day long, on April 1st (and only on April 1st).

Achievement: Bristlebane Day - The Gift of Laughter

1) APRIL 1ST: This is, sort of, a secret quest / achievement.

This quest is not given by an NPC, it just happens... and it can ONLY happen on APRIL 1ST!

Yes, you read that correctly! You can only do this on April 1st (on the real life calendar, not the Norrath Calendar).

So, all you need to do is log in on April 1st, and then literally just start zoning around.

Head zone-to-zone-to-zone and at some point, you will randomly get a buff called the 'Gift of Laughter.' This buff should stay on you until midnight, Pacific time (real time). Otherwise, you should not be able to remove the buff.

You should see emotes such as...

You let out a hearty chuckle.
You light a firework. Weeeee!

Once you get the buff, you get this Achievement.

The reward is a suffix, 'the Lunatic,' and a Painting: Haunting Laughter.

The Painting: Haunting Laughter is placeable. If you right click it, you can select 'Stare Into Madness." If you do, you will either hear one (1) of three (3) types of laughter... or you will be Teleported to Shard's Landing. You will likely have to 'Stare Into Madness" many, many times before you actually get Teleported.

NOTE: Year round... not just on April 1st... if you have access to a Painting: Haunting Laughter that has been placed by another Player... and you do not yet have the Achievement: Bristlebane Day - The Gift of Laughter... you can "Stare Into Madness" until you get Teleported to Shard's Landing. When that happens, you will get the noted Achievement and your own Painting: Haunting Laughter! However, you can only get the suffix, 'the Lunatic,' from the zoning on April 1st (until you get the 'Gift of Laughter' buff, which you can still do / get the next time April 1st rolls around).
