LOTRO April Fools Day

LOTRO April Fools Day Event Guide

Am I really writing a mini-guide at 10.45pm on the 31st March? Why yes I am, because tomorrow is April Fools Day and LOTRO have decided to run something “a bit weird”! There are a couple of titles up for grabs for your characters and a random bit of fun too. So what’s this LOTRO April Fools Day Event thing?

When Does It Run?

Per this tweetExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab), it runs from 10am /servertime on March 31st 2024, and ends at 3am /servertime on April 2nd.

Unlike last year, the April Fools chicken run featured in the LOTRO Events Schedule. Hopefully they will keep it there as it’s a great little bit of fun.

How Do I Take Part?

There are two parts to the April Fools weekend. You can grab a title simply by logging your characters in during the time the event is running. And the second is for following the quest – and completing it.

Right, well, I failed the first time through no fault of my own. So I learned afterwards!

Your Aim

As a chicken, your aim is to get from your starting point to the settlement of Glân Vraig:

  • Within 15 minutes
  • Without being defeated.

You are a chicken! If you’ve never done Chicken Play before, know that getting hit by anything is almost certainly your doom. You have a few speed and evasion skills, along with a Possum-like action. But don’t go near anything enemy-like!

Here are the steps you need to know.

Have a fun Diversion with the LOTRO April Fools Day Event!

With two titles up for grabs and a random session play, it’s worth taking a break from questing for a laugh or two. So lay down your arms and pick up your chicken feet and go have the best April Fools Day you can. “FibroJedi, Fool” – yeah, sounds about right! Well at least the LOTRO Anniversary is coming, where I can redeem myself. Maybe.
