*Prizes: [[Bristlebane's Celebrative Courier]] Uniform parts.

''Each year, the previous years' content (quests, notes about event changes, new items) should be incorporated into the main body of the page, in each sub-header category. Only new content should only occupy the New in <nowiki> <Current Year> </nowiki> section below. This prevents redundant information and an unnecessarily long page. Retired quests and notes about changes can be moved to Event History section if necessary.''

  +
Every year and only on April 1st (12:01am PST - 11:59pm), extra quests are available and more can be found in [[Enchanted Lands]].
   
  +
The info below is based on the previous year and can change, so keep your eyes out for anything unusual on that day!
   
'''Collections:'''
+
===Riddled Quest Series===
  +
Three quests are available. These are offered consecutively and begin with:
  +
*[[Riddled Throughout the Land]] is the first in a series of three quests offered by the sphinx, [[Imenand]], in the [[Enchanted Lands]].

  +
* [[Frostfell Crafting Stations]] will also appear in [[The Sinking Sands]]. Climb the wall by the [[Croc Hunter Camp]] to reach the stations at the airship docks. Stop and hail the goblin at {{Loc|-1,398|-163|-764}} to stock up on Frostfell Fuels too.

+
==Event Hub==

Most (but not all) of the quests can be found in [[Enchanted Lands]], close to the docks, with the exception of:
  +
*[[The Grand Prankster]] (also found masquerading as [[Blat Berisen]]) can be found in multiple zones. While a single quest is offered one-time only, he started offering a new quest in 2016, so keep and eye out for him. See the [[Blat Berisen]] page for all of the zones in which he may be found.

**[[Bristlebane Day Snack Snatcher: Enchanted Lands]] - a race that's common to [[Live Events|live events]]. It is a ground-based race.
  +
**[[Bristlebane Bounce: Sinking Sands]] - instead of the usual ground-based race, you launch in the air to get points.
  +
''Note'' - Players with [[Free-To-Play|All Access]] (subscription) accounts earn double the event currency.
   
* On the docks of [[Enchanted Lands]], visit the [[Gigglegibber Hunt Master]] for the [[Ratical]] quest as well as to purchase the Gigglegibber Scavenger Hunt List.
+
==Tradeskill Recipes==
* The one-time-only quest [[Tin Metal Protection]] is available again for those who have not yet completed it.
+
No matter which [[Tradeskill|tradeskill]] you begin or master, any crafter can make the items in the recipe books.
* Additionally, for those who have completed the collection quest [[Impossibly Rare Objects]] you may once again speak with [[The Grand Prankster]] to have him "bless" your reward. If you recevied the reward in previous years but forgot (or didn't realise!) go pick it up from your home and bring it out to him and he will oblige you just the same!
+
*The {{PAGENAME}} recipes can be purchased ''only'' while {{PAGENAME}} is live. The previous year's recipes are always offered and (typically) new recipes are added annually.
  +
*You will also need a variety of harvestables from [[Jester's garden]] bushes in specific zones that you can ''only'' gather during the event. See the section, Special Crafting Materials below for more details.
  +
*Unlike Frostfell, which requires [[Frostfell Crafting Stations|special crafting stations]], you can make these items all year if you stock up holiday themed materials.
  +

* [[Riddled Again]] (new for 2011) is available after you've completed [[Riddled Throughout the Land]].
+
While [[Brew Day]] recipes books feature tons of booze-themed items, this event is heavy on [[:Category:Food (Item Subtype)|food]] to place in [[Housing|player housing]] and all things vibrant or silly.
* Also, [[Jester's Superior Gardens]] will appear throughout [[Enchanted Lands]], offering an unexpected supply of crafting goodies from [[Frostfell]], [[Erollisi Day]], [[Tinkerfest]], [[Brew Day]] and [[Nights of the Dead]].

Keep in mind that the start date and end of (most) events is midnight PST, due to the location of the main office of Daybreak Games.

A Note for Wiki EditorsEdit

Each year, the previous years' content (quests, notes about event changes, new items) should be incorporated into the main body of the page, in each sub-header category. Only new content should only occupy the New in <Current Year> section below. This prevents redundant information and an unnecessarily long page. Retired quests and notes about changes can be moved to Event History section if necessary.

Added in 2020Edit

This event will be active on Live servers in 2020 on March 27th.

Like most other annual live events it will automatically start and end without server downtime. NPCs and special locations will simply appear.

The Highest of High Silly Days... ONE DAY ONLY!Edit

Jesters-superior-garden-example

Jester's Superior Garden bushes appear ONLY on April 1st. This bush differs from the normal Jester's gardens during the rest of the event.

Every year and only on April 1st (12:01am PST - 11:59pm), extra quests are available and more can be found in Enchanted Lands.

The info below is based on the previous year and can change, so keep your eyes out for anything unusual on that day!

Riddled Quest SeriesEdit

Three quests are available. These are offered consecutively and begin with:

CollectionEdit

Tradeskill Materials, Frostfell Stations and FuelEdit

AchievementEdit

  • Earn the achievement Fur Finder by hunting 25 an ironbelly rabbits. These rabbits replace the standard unnamed rabbits seen hopping around most areas, especially in Antonica, are trackable and are in no way related to the An ironbelly rabbits from the live October event from 2015.

Event HubEdit

Most (but not all) of the quests can be found in Enchanted Lands, close to the docks, with the exception of:

  • The Grand Prankster (also found masquerading as Blat Berisen) can be found in multiple zones. While a single quest is offered one-time only, he started offering a new quest in 2016, so keep and eye out for him. See the Blat Berisen page for all of the zones in which he may be found.
  • The event merchants (see next section).

MerchantsEdit

Bristlebane-dey-merchant

A Bristle Bane Day merchant in West Freeport

Though they look different from city to city, the merchants for this event are easy to spot because of their brightly colored robes. You will find them near the tradeskill area of each city.

Bristlebane Day merchants are mischievous halflings found in the following locations:
See the Bristlebane Day Merchant Items page for a list of items you can purchase.

Event CurrencyEdit

To check the amount of event currency you have on hand, press C to open the Character window and click on the Currency tab.

  • Fool's Gold Coin is obtained when you kill various monsters, complete quests, and compete in the races.

Tips and Tricks to Obtain Fool's GoldEdit

Note - Players with All Access (subscription) accounts earn double the event currency.

Tradeskill RecipesEdit

No matter which tradeskill you begin or master, any crafter can make the items in the recipe books.

  • The Bristlebane Day recipes can be purchased only while Bristlebane Day is live. The previous year's recipes are always offered and (typically) new recipes are added annually.
  • You will also need a variety of harvestables from Jester's garden bushes in specific zones that you can only gather during the event. See the section, Special Crafting Materials below for more details.
  • Unlike Frostfell, which requires special crafting stations, you can make these items all year if you stock up holiday themed materials.
  • Like most holiday-themed live events, the recipes are primarily items for use in player housing.

Available RecipesEdit

Bristlebane-crafted-example

Examples of colorful crafted items found in various Perfectly Serious Items to Craft recipe books.

While Brew Day recipes books feature tons of booze-themed items, this event is heavy on food to place in player housing and all things vibrant or silly.

Special Crafting MaterialsEdit

Jesters garden

This shrub has Bristlebane Day recipe ingredients.

In order to craft items from the holiday-themed recipes, you must gather materials from Jester's garden, a small, pale bush with a red particle effect.

  • All of the materials have humorous names like High Elf Funny Bone and so on. See the Jester's garden page for the full list.
  • The harvests from these nodes are tradeable, so check the broker if you need to stock up.
  • If you have completed the Gathering Obsession Timeline and have the Artisan's Fully Trained Pack Pony, it can be sent out to get the holiday-themed materials for you too.
  • See the ONE DAY ONLY section above for special materials that can be gathered only on April 1st.

Locations:Edit

These can be found throughout most of the zones listed, but the following areas have high concentrations with easy access from adjacent zones:

From: A Fan of Frivolous Folly

Subject: Bristlebane Day!

Good day,

Jesters, thieves, bards, or simply fans of mischief and frivolity, are all encouraged to enjoy these holy days honoring Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane! Begin your celebration in Enchanted Lands, where you will find plenty of laughs and pranks that await you amongst the congregation of revelers, like Zruk, a troll interested in items of luck. I've also heard there are now patchcraft creatures on Luclin and in Obulus Frontiers! Of course, you can get even more involved by crafting your very own items in celebration of this wonderful holiday. Visit your local tradeskill house to purchase these special recipes!

P.S. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for special events, especially in Enchanted Lands, occurring only on the highest of silly days, April 1st!
