This annual live event occurs in November each year, typically as Nights of the Dead ends. To see the exact date while in-game, click the EQ2 radial button on the bottom left of your screen and select the Calendar option from the menu.

Like other live events it offers event-themed quests, achievements, and special monsters to battle. Unlike other events, there are no event-themed tradeskill recipes, though players can buy a variety of useful armor and weapons, appearance gear, and house items from the event merchants.

New in 2021[]

The 2021 Heroes' Festival is scheduled to be active on live & TLE servers from 11/5/2021 at 12:01 am until 11/15/2021 at 11:59pm Pacific time.

Live servers[]

TLE Servers[]

  • Kaladim - the event is active, with the following exceptions (due to expansion availability):
  • Tarinax - the event is active, with the following exceptions (due to expansion availability):
    • Mischeva's Clothworks (associated quests and collections)
    • Thumore's quest line
    • One Afterlife to Live
    • Heroes' Festival Merchant prices have been adjusted specifically for TLE due to the lack of Mischeva's Clothworks event.
    • In-Game mail to announce TLE event

Currency and Merchants[]


An example of the Heroes Fest armor (cloth), purchased with the event currency.

Unlike most Live Events, that have a single event-themed currency, Heroes' Fest rewards two types, both of which can be spent at the same merchants.

Currency Types
  1. Tokens of Heroism - the quests typically offer this currency as a reward option. The items offered for this currency are typically items used in housing.
  2. Mischeva's Tribute - these tokens are awarded for defeating the various "patchwork" bosses tied to the event achievements. This currency can be used to purchase attractive armor and weapons with stats and some appearance items.

A Heroes' Festival merchant - these merchants are found in the event hubs of both Freeport and the Qyenos Capitol District and offer the same items in both locations.

Quests and Event Hubs[]


The markers for placing event decorations is a green sparkle.

The quests are identical in both locations, so travel to the event hub that suits your alignment to begin celebrating.

Celebrators, happy to share in the festivities, can be found in:

Tips and Tricks:
  • All of the decoration locations are marked with a green sparkle that looks similar to a collection "shiny" from a distance.
  • All of the Feast decor locations will be on or near the tables.
  • If working on Festive Flames and Missing Decorations, you may have to pass by the same general areas a few times, as the refresh between setting the Ro Candle and the paper lanterns may have a considerable time gap.

Overseer Quests[]

Worldwide Quests[]


Look for Mischeva and her players in select locations to battle epic monsters.

  • The Play's the Thing - Mischeva and her band of play-actors have been seen traveling around Norrath. Where they set up camp, they bring to life the stories of Norrath's past. Travel to these locations to battle the "patchwork bosses".
  • Defeating these Heroes' Festival Named Monsters is a group effort for which everyone can earn rewards and get credit for participating.
  • Though all of the battles with the event-only monsters are difficult, players of all levels can participate in to earn Mischeva's Tribute (event currency); lower level players will just earn less currency than those closer to the level of the monsters.
  • All of the bosses are tied to the achievements for this event.
  • Look for Mischeva in the Freeport and Qeynos event hubs for each city and neat the locations for each event-only monster.
  • Once you have the quest, travel to the various locations and check for the patchwork bosses and/or communicate with other players on your server to find out where they may be active.


The "patchwork puppet" version of Trakanon.

The following pages describe the locations of each "patchwork puppet boss" and how to travel to them:

Patchwork Monsters
Monster Name Travel Method Location
Darathar (Heroes' Festival) - Antonica Use the world "bell" (globe) Antonica: near the Frontier Farm at ( -910, -32, 235 ) Copy
Darathar (Heroes' Festival) - Commonlands Use the world "bell" (globe), or use the Ulteran Spires The Commonlands: near the The Crossroads at ( -588, -47, -340 ) Copy
The Djinn Master (Heroes Festival) Use the world "bell" (globe) The Sinking Sands and head toward the Croc Hunter Camp (right side of the beach) at ( -1426, -229, -527 ) Copy
Trakanon (Heroes' Festival) Use the world "bell" (globe) Kylong Plains and head straight back from the docks. The event will be to the left side of and behind Dreg's Landing, just beyond the sokokar post, near ( 842, 10, 64 ) Copy.
Roehn Theer (Heroes' Festival) Use the Ulteran Spires When using the Ulteran Spires, you'll enter The Stonebrunt Highlands in Quel'ule. Look for the large platform just outside of Quel'ule and hail the a Temporal guide-522, 378, 576 ) Copy to automatically fly to Intercontinental Temporal Station.
If using the Druid Rings, you'll enter The Stonebrunt Highlands near The Deepwater Pavilion. Hail a Temporal guide-285, 193, -324 ) Copy to automatically fly to Intercontinental Temporal Station.
The event takes place near ( -448, 373, 1445 ) Copy.
Baelon (Heroes Festival) Use a Drinalian Whisper Column and select the The Fearcreep, or go to The Feerrott and use the portal in the area with the Ulteran Spire. If using the Drinalian Whisper Column and selecting The Fearcreep, you'll be placed very close to the event.
If that is not an option, near the Spire in The Feerrott is a rift that allows for travel to The Eidolon Jungle. Once in the jungle, then use a flying mount to head up to the Feercreep.
The event takes place near ( -1631, 221, 750 ) Copy.

Alternate travel methods to consider:

  • Call of the Veteran (CoV) - ask someone who is at the location to use CoV to bring you to them
  • Guild Strategist - if your guild has this amenity for the guild hall, a higher level member can travel and plant the flag for other members.
  • Use the Druid Ring to Obol Plains and run/leap to the Tourbillion which will transport you to the Eidolon Jungle. From there you can run/leap to the mob.

Annual Quests, Repeatable Once per Year[]

In addition to the world event locations above, players will some find simple quests in the following locations:

The Thumore's Quest series starts in Freeport at ( -18, -7, -153 ) Copy (away from the main quest hub) but is near still Claymore Plaza in Qeynos ( 320, -20, 12 ) Copy.

  1. Thumore's Absence - this is completed only once, but is required to unlock the following annual quests:
  2. Shattered Remains
