Celebrate the Great Wedding of Aragorn and Arwen!
The LOTRO Midsummer Festival celebrates the wedding of Aragorn and Arwen, which took place some time after the overthrow of Sauron. Elessar, now finally King of Gondor and Arnor as Elrond mandated, can finally wed his fair Elven lady. So, throw off the armour and only raise your weapons in salute, for the Midsummer Festival is on!
If you need a guide in German, see Berrie’s Mittsommer im HdRO.
When Is the Midsummer Festival?
The 2023 event runs from 8th June at 10am /servertime to 5th July at 3am/servertime. So the last full day for most of us will be 4th July 2023.
What’s New This Year?
For that, skip to What’s New for 2023!
Please be aware that, unlike all other events, the Midsummer Festival has a token limit! You can hold 250 Tokens per Character. So ensure you spend some before you hit it.
How Do I Get Started?
Auto-Bestowed QuestPer the Official Guide:
- When you log in you will have an auto-bestowed quest.
- This contains a map to Minas Tirith (Midsummer)
- From there you can get the intro quest and begin exploring. The NPC you need is in the next screenshot.
…Midsummer Wedding-planners are located in Thorin’s Hall, Duillond, Bree-town, and the Party Tree to direct players to Midsummer quests in those areas.
Note: You can Swift-Travel to Minas Tirith (Midsummer) from major stablemasters.
So wherever you are at in Middle-Earth you can get to the special instance of Minas Tirith and start celebrating!
Also: the “Section Menu” buttons take you back up to the table of contents. You’ll want to use this if you’re flicking between different quests.
You pick up the Daily and the other wrapper from Faeleth. She is on the main path into Minas Tirith. The wrappers are:
1. In Celebration of MidsummerThe Daily 10 × Festival Quests wrapper. It awards
2. A Fondness for Festivity
To complete this, finish 5 × Daily Wrappers.
The first (intro) stage awards:
3. The Majesty of Midsummer
And finally, this reward is for completing whichever stage of A Fondness for Festivity you happen to be on.
The (Intro) stage grants:
- Midsummer Tokens × 5
- Figments of Splendour × 500
- Scrap of an Essence Reclamation Scroll
- Universal Optional Crafting Ingredient
- Legendary Item XP
Navigating Minas TirithSometimes in my guides, I put stuff in because I need it. This is one of those times!
On Foot, or Mount
Minas Tirith is built into a mountain, in concentric circles. If you’re on foot or mounted, you’ll need to keep looking for stairs, ramps, or passageways that go up. This should help find the next circle in. When I first entered the Citadel, I found the first such ramp was behind me.
Which is the Citadel Stable?You need the High Stables to reach the Citadel by Horse-taxi.
Stable MastersYou can find stable masters to many (though not all) of the circles. They do charge 1 silver, but everyone knows you have to take some coin when visiting a festival yes?
In MT the ramps going down to a lower level are always found near the stable-master on your current level. Ramps going up come out near the stable-master on the upper level and those stable-masters alternate which half of the circle they are on.
…the Sages’ Tier stable-master goes to the ring labeled “Master’s Ring”. There’s no stable-master for the ring labeled “Sages”. All of the other stable-masters go where they say they go.
All Quests & Quick Daily 10
Here are the quest-givers for the many and varied Midsummer activities in Minas Tirith. For quests elsewhere see my separate guide for Midsummer Quests Outside Minas Tirith and A Long-Awaited Banquet Quests.

Quick Daily Rotation
There is so much to do (I’m starting to sound like old Barliman) and enjoy at Midsummer, that my advice is to slow down and do that. If, however, you’re trying to get rewards on multiple characters or getting those Figments of Splendour, then a “quick 10” might be up your street.
So, a huge to @FFlunkies who published a post last year with their quick 10-quest rotation and have donated it to the guide for this year. I will simply summarise the post here as I’ve already written the non-banquet quests up.
Follow This Route@FFlunkies suggest taking this route around. The NPC names are the quest-giver locations, not necessarily where the quest itself takes place.

Minas Tirith QuestsUnless they have added more quests this year, here are all the LOTRO Midsummer Festival quests available within Minas Tirith.
Tasty Morsels3 × Midsummer Tokens
Othnoron, a Cook, wants you to deliver samples of his “experimental treats”. These are for the tactfully-described “loftier citizens”. Basically he’s using the tried-and-tested free sample to make sales. Well, don’t all vendors at festivals the world over do the same?
These need delivering to NPCs in the Players’ Tier (they are all marked on your map). I suggest you take the Stable-Master from the Citadel (High Stables).
Arastil (21.4N, 56.1W)
Brandion (21.3N, 56.2W)
Daghir (21.8N, 55.0W)
Gwàrben (21.3N, 55.7)
Pelnen (21.4N, 55.4W)
Lightning in a Bottle3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-Giver: Merilien (The Citadel: 22.5N, 55.8W)
When You Can Do Them
The four quests to catch fireflies for the lanterns at Minas Tirith are only available from Gloaming until Dawn. You can see this in your minimap or use Titanbar, one of the LOTRO Plugins I always have active.
You can also only have one firefly quest active at once. See the other tabs for information on catching the colour of firefly you’re looking for!
- Fireflies seem to spawn at random intervals (e.g. number of seconds)
- You may be “competing” with other players for them
- You have plenty of times to collect the fireflies
- Don’t chase one another player is heading for.
A tactic/strategy I have seen other players doing is to find a Firefly and stay by that spawn point. If others are around, be patient and wait for it to respawn. This saves chasing after fireflies and potentially annoying another players.
Amethyst Fireflies can be found in the Low-Lands of Ered Luin at The Grimwater.
You need to place these in lanterns in the Sixth Circle.
Emerald Fireflies can be found in the Midgewater Marshes at in Bree-land. The part of the marsh is East of Marshwater Fort.
Catch 12 × Emerald Fireflies, which appear as quest rings when they (re)spawn.
Placing the Lanterns
Merilien, who hates that you smell of the place she just sent you to, says you should: “places them about the stage in the Merry Swan”. This is found in the Craftsmans’ Tier.
Take the Stable-Master, then head South/West around the circle. The Merry Swan‘s entrance is at (21.0N, 56.6W). The stage is at the back of the Inn.
- Midsummer Token × 1
- Banner of the Newly-Wed Kit × 1
This is what the area looks like. I tried to get a screenshot with Ruby Fireflies in it, but as you can see, I wasn’t the only person there on this trip.
Remember: Fireflies only appear from Gloaming until Dawn.
Placing the Lanterns
These need to go to the Hall of Air on the Fifth Circle (the Sages’ Tier). The Hall of Air is at (23.1N, 56.3N), North of the Sages’ Tier Stable-Master.
They all go in the seating area to the left as you enter.
- Midsummer Token × 1
- Strawberry Bun Baking Kit × 1 (For A Celebratory Snack Cook crafting quest in Without a Hitch)
They can be collected from around this small pool of water. Again, because I went as soon as Gloaming hit, there were a few players also collecting Sapphire Fireflies. Be patient and be considerate.
Remember: Fireflies only appear from Gloaming until Dawn.
Placing the Lanterns
These need to go to the Court of Voronwëaut; in the Fourth Circle, the Players’ Tier. There are two locations you need to place Sapphire Firefly Lanterns. Both of them are near the Players’ Circle Stable-Master.
As you can see, one is near Pelnen, an NPC you talk to as part of Tasty Morsels. Rewards:
- Midsummer Token × 1
- Wedding Centrepiece Kit × 1 (For A Wedding Favor Jeweller crafting quest in Without a Hitch)
Something Floral3 × Midsummer TokensQuest-Giver: Merilien (The Citadel: 22.5N, 55.8W)
Merilien wants to liven up the Houses of Lore with flower arrangements. Apparently the “room with dead things” really needs it!
These need placing in the Fifth Tier, which is the Sage’s Tier. The Coordinates of the entrance are (21.7N, 56.3W). Take the stable-master to the Sage’s Tier then ride around the semi-circle, heading South.
Place 6 Floral Arrangements in the obviously-marked locations inside.
Love is in the Air3 × Midsummer TokensQuest-Giver: Colladan (Houses of Lore: 21.7N, 56.3W)
Catching Wayward VersesThe mechanic is the same as Lost Invitations in the LOTRO Anniversary Event. And other players will also be trying to catch them!
Who Opened the Window?If you speak to Lírveril while catching Wayward verses, you find out it was her who opened the window. On purpose. It is her that Colladan is trying to woo, and she knows it😁!
Toss a Coin3 × Midsummer TokensLocation: The Splintered Shield, Soldiers’ Tier (21.7N, 56.3W)
A very, very drunk flower merchant is faring worse than usual. Apart from having to check you’re not actually his wife, his main problem is a stonking headache. Hardly a surprise. He decides the source of it are badly-playing minstrels. Instead of leaving the inn for peace and quiet, he gives you some coins to toss at the instrumentalists to make them go away.
A bit harsh.
Toss a Coin to Noisy Minstrels × 6You can find various minstrels both upstairs and down in The Splintered Shield. The most obscure one appears to be in the sleeping quarters up the wooden steps. I’ve included that screenshot here. Simply right-click on them to hurl the insult and offend a musician.
Toss a Coin Emote/cointoss is available as one of the Midsummer rewards. I’ve put a video of it in the rewards emotes section below.
Artistic Direction3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-Giver: Borlach of Rimmon (Soldiers’ Tier 21.4N, 54.4W)
The artist Borlach, who would rather you got lost than him, has run out of painting materials. So, in true quest-giver style, sends of you, his errand-servant, to go find them. They are marked on your map, but what use a guide, without guidance?
CharcoalCharcoal can be obtained from Ciriel (21.0N, 55.3W)
ClayThe otherwise-nameless Potter is at (23.3N, 54.9W).
FlowersThe gardener Lebadar is just inside the Soldiers’ Tier, at the bottom of the ramp from the Craftsmen’s Tier. He is at (23.9N, 54.9W).
Sweet Treats3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Ciriel (Craftsmen’s Tier: 21.0N, 55.3W).
Guard MapClick/tap on the thumbnail to open the full version.
Honouring Healers3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Postmaster (House of the Craft, Craftsmen’s Tier: 23.2N, 55.0W) The Postmaster has a lovely errand for you, sending thank you notes to those that work in the Houses of Healing.
Where are the Houses of Healing?They are in the Citadel just down the ramp by the High Stables. The entrance to the House of Remedies can be found at (21.9N, 56.1W). Note: this is different to the High House for A Cure for All Ills.
Where Are the Healers?They are all over the House of Remedies, often walking around, but not always. So just check all parts of the building. I will try to make a map at a later point. But this place is stunning. See the NPC-chasing as an opportunity to #StopAndStare and enjoy the artwork of LOTRO designers and developers.
Growing Pains3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Lebadar, Soldiers’ Tier (23.9N, 54.9W)
Statue of Steward EgalmothThe “third circle” is the Craftsmen’s Tier but in the very North-West.
- Pull up 5 × Pesky Weeds
- Water 4 × Unwatered Plants
A Cure for All Ills3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Ioreth: The High Hall, Houses of Healing (21.9N, 55.8W)Ioreth is most put out by festival-goers forgetting that the Houses of Healing are supposed to be for rest. She enlists your aid in cleaning up mess made by “that rabble”, as she calls them!
- Dispose of Half-emptied bottles in the High Hall × 10
- Remove 6 × Noisy Revellers. Basically, you’re a bouncer.
- Beren’s Blood
- Falas Draught
- Pinnath Plum Wine
Aiding the Stable-Hands3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Loborís, City Stables: (21.9N, 55.8W) Unsurprisingly, the main way wedding celebration guests have arrived is by horse. This leads to very dedicated, but overworked stable-hands. Want to be a stable-hand for a shift? Don’t worry, no mucking-out needed! Just grooming and giving of apple treats.
Where is the Grooming Brush?The equipment crate and apples are at the back of the stables (in the North-West corner if you load the map). They’re just up a few steps:
Arranging Arrangements3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Florist, The Citadel (21.1N, 56.0W)Oh boy, the florist needs you to place 5 × Floral Arrangments “around the city”. You’d think these fine business-folk would learn they need to employ temporary staff during busy times of the year, right?Rant over, here are the three Event Locations:
Event Locations Map
The Merry SwanCraftsmen’s Tier: (21.0N, 56.6W) 2 × Floral Arrangements
The Blue TheatrePlayers’ Tier: (21.4N, 56.6W) 3 × Floral Arrangement
The Hall of Air (Outdoors)Sages’ Tier: (23.1N, 56.3W) 2 × Floral Arrangements
Floral Crowns3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Florist, The Citadel (21.1N, 56.0W)The florist’s “easily distracted” daughter has been sent to gather flowers to make into Floral Crowns (get your own Crown of Summer Flowers during Midsummer!). She’s likely somewhere around the First Circle. Thank the Valar for Festival Stable-Masters!
Find the Florist’s daughterTake the Stable-Master to “City Stables” in the First Circle. You can find her running around near (21.7N, 53.8W). She also appears as a quest ring in your mini-map.
Pick 10 × Summer BlossomsThe quest text reads “blossoms” but you’re looking for Summer Flowers in the areas marked on your map.
Make a Floral CrownWhile you were gone, the Florist’s daughter actually collected some flowers. As a Dad of one such easily-distracted girl I was surprised!
Something Misplaced, Something Blue3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Duillam, The Blue Theatre, Players’ Tier (21.5N, 56.6W)Duillam, who appears to despise the band name of a group he acknowledges as “fine enough musicians”, has lost the performers. Being dutiful, he has been waiting for a random visitor to Minas Tirith to go find them for him.
Cloudyheads MoveI have provided a map showing places I found members of the Cloudyheads. However, Musicians may/do appear in more than one location and can move. That’s why I’ve put more than six dots on the map. e.g. Here’s Gord Dunley’s two spawn points:
Cloudyheads Locations MapIt is highly likely that I do not have all spawn points recorded!
To The Last Drop3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Merilien, The Citadel (22.5N, 55.8W)
Where’s the Splintered Shield?Soldier’s Tier, in the South of the circle at 20.6N, 55.6W.
Where are the Wines?They are downstairs in the kitchen. Take the door on the left as you enter the Splintered Shield. The kitchen is the first right.
Samples of Wine – Get it Right First Time!Thanks to agentlangdon‘s method you can get the right glass first time! Below is a shot of all the incorrect glasses. Play “Spot the Difference” with your view in-game and find the right one!
…the Wine tasting seems to fix the correct wine goblet for the whole day (3am to 3am) as this works on multiple characters on different accounts so if you’re repeating it on an alt, remember which one it was from the first one.
What Ales You3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Merilien, The Citadel (22.5N, 55.8W)Not all the best drinks are fine wines – some are ale too! Merilien wants you to fetch 4 × Barrels of Ale from the best taverns in Minas Tirith.* Click/Tap images here to load the large one.
The Splintered ShieldSoldier’s Tier at 20.6N, 55.6W This is in the kitchen, as per To the Last Drop:
The Mûmak and KeepSoldier’s Tier at 20.8N, 55.9W Just head straight to the back of the small inn. The barrel is next to the enormous Mûmak skull.
The Merry SwanCraftsmen’s Tier at 21.0N, 56.6W As you enter, look left. There’s a raised bit where the stack of barrels is.
The Thirsty SeerSage’s Tier at 21.8N, 56.5W Go to this location inside The Thirsty Seer:
Wedding Supplies3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Merilien, The Citadel (22.5N, 55.8W)Merilien is in the business of making weddings the best possible memories. To that end, she has a special shipment of fine goods. The person who should have ensured safe delivery has gone AWOL. So who gets to go and fetch them? Muggins, of course. All Wedding Supplies are on the Craftsmen’s Tier.Note: these are not open-tapped so you may need to wait for respawn.
House of CraftCraftsmen’s Tier (23.3N, 54.9W) 3 × Wedding Supplies
The second one is close to the two quest givers.
Near CirielCraftsmen’s Tier (21.1N, 55.4W) 1 × Wedding Supplies Head behind Ciriel and turn right.
Raised Table/Eating AreaCraftsmen’s Tier (20.9N, 56.0W) 1 × Wedding Supplies As you head to the marked circle on your map, heading West, you can find this table area on your left.
Outside Middle StoresCraftsmen’s Tier (21.1N, 56.1W) 1 × Wedding Supplies If you have floaty names on you can see a plaque for Middle Stores. The Wedding Supplies are towards the door on the right:
Without a Hitch QuestsQuest-giver: Melthend (Marriage-Wright), House of Craft (23.3N, 54.9W)
- Relevant crafting profession started. Only Apprentice Level is needed, so these are good for new players and characters.
- Crafting Recipes: These can be acquired from Melthend for one Midsummer Token each.
- Relevant Crafting Kits: Completing a Lightning in a Bottle quest also grants one of these for free.
As with all crafting materials, these appear in your bags. Once you have 3 Kits, head to the relevant crafting facility to make it. 1 Kit Makes 1 Item.
- If you craft these with a “crit” then you will make 3 items from 1 Kit. If you have Universal Optional Crafting Ingredients, then this may be a good use of one.
- The recipes and kits are not bound, so your other characters can craft the items for you.
- You can craft all four items on two characters if you have Armourer and Tinker crafting professions.
Unhelpful Hounds3 × Midsummer Tokens
Quest-giver: Worried Woman, Soldiers’ Tier (24.1N, 55.1W)
A Long-Awaited BanquetA Celebration Without EndOnce you have attended the wedding you can access Merethrond to complete quests for the surviving members of the original Fellowship of the Ring. Find out more by clicking/tapping below to go to my guide!A Long-Awaited Banquet Quests
Festival Title Deeds
Flickering Flame TitleComplete each colour of fireflies twice in the Lightning in a Bottle quest.
Midsummer Merry-Maker TitleComplete 120 Festival Quests.
Midsummer Fireworks DeedsThere are four further deeds you can complete during the festival. These do not grant titles, but they do give you four permanent “social” actions. They are the same idea as the “Consume Consumables” deeds found elsewhere in LOTRO events.
LOTRO Midsummer Festival RewardsAs there are no shortage of quests during the LOTRO Midsummer Festival, there is no lack of rewards either! Enjoy!
What’s New for 2023?You have almost a full complement of items this year!
- Summer Concert Outfit Cosmetics
- Fab, quirky new mount
- A Green Firefly Pet
- And there are housing decorations too.
Most Recent CosmeticsBelow are the most recent Midsummer cosmetics I have on my guide. If it’s day 1 of a festival and there are new cosmetics, please give me a few hours to update this section!
Older CosmeticsTo see previous years’ cosmetics, or to see them organised by gear slot, please take a look at my:Midsummer Cosmetics Library
MountsThere are 6 Mounts available in total during Midsummer. Five are for tokens, and the other is for completing the questline.
Older MountsFor all the mounts, including ones not listed here, see my Midsummer Mounts List.
2023 Cosmetic Pets
Firefly pets also come in three other colours! I have linked to them from the Summer Concert Firefly page.
To browse all pets from this festival see the Midsummer tab of Pets from Festivals and Events!
Musical InstrumentsThere is a huge raft of musical instruments to be had. So many you could build a raft of them. I’ll get shots ASAP for you, but there are instruments that all start with Summer Celebration and all cost 10 Tokens. This list is in the order of the vendor.
- Mountain Harp
Musical Instrument Screenshots
EmotesEmotes will set you back 30 Midsummer Tokens, but there are only two standard “emotes”. One is a firework – see below!
FireworksIt’s a celebration after all, so why not set off some fireworks when night falls on Minas Tirith? Most of these are consumables, but one is not.
Fireworks (Consumables) Videos
Get the Permanent SkillEach firework costs 2 Tokens each. As you need to launch each one 25 times, you’ll need to use a total of 50 x Tokens to unlock the permanent skill.See Fireworks Deeds for more information.
Housing DecorationsI don’t provide details about housing decorations. That’s because I want you to go and visit Déco du Milieu’s fab collection instead!
