Grab your shorts and shades, slap on the factor 50, Summerfest is up for test on the PTS
This is the World Event for 1.9 and it certainly has a lot happening which will have you running around every zone on mainland Telara, date seems to be 27th June......
The quests for Summerfest have all been moved to a new area in Sanctum, remember that pic of all the Auctioneers and Drinks vendor gone? that's where it is, in the shape of a maze, which will definitely cause some people to nerd rage
(note how different Planetouched Wilds is starting to look in the background)
Too many quests and stuff to individually list, so here's how your quest tracker will look...
What are those Scavenger Hunts i hear you ask? these are puzzles for each zone which you'll either solve straight away or will have you running around like a headless chicken
As an example here's an easy one for Silverwood..
Without saying spoilers or where to find items, here's each quests description when you accept them...
Little Scavenger Hunt Part 1:
Freemarch: Find and kiss Jakub the Morose
Silverwood: Find and Give Hylas a hug
Stonefield: Find Troll Treasure
Gloamwood: Find the Tree of Wisdom
Scarlet Gorge: Jump through glowing rings along the falls (0/10)
Great Scavenger Hunt Part 1:
Scarwood Reach: Plant trees in Scarwood (0/5)
Moonshade: Swim with the fishes
Droughtlands: Seek out something underground that squirms and is near flames
Iron Pines Peak: Find the missing mountaineer
Shimmersand: Deliver ice cream
Stillmoor: Take a lap around Stillmoor
A vendor is up but seems to only have titles for now
Someone seems to have a corgi fetish
Finally.... Trapping seems to be up in a rough form on the PTS, trapped my first companion earlier
When you're near a trappable pet, you will see the name appear on your screen and a "temporary ability" net to use...
Simply get into melee range and 'use' the net, voila, the pet is now yours, best of all it does not despawn so no need to camp it if it was just caught by somebody else, yes you can catch it again and no, it's not BoE, it's soulbound
I've also come across a few names that appeared but no mob was there like Green Cobra and a few more so most likely not added yet
