  • Opal Goodbody at the ovens near the party tree. It involves Lobelia's posting as official Yule-planner.
  • If you have harvestmath tokens, make sure you have 12 instead of the 8 advertised during the festival. If you turned them in to the Vendor at the Horse Track it was the higher amount. If you walked 50 yards to the Horse Farm it was the lower amount. Sometimes you have to pay a little extra for the added convenience.
  • the Yule-tide Woes quest chain to get the Yule-tree yard decoration is also back on, talk to Hal Hornblower standing next to the Hobbiton Stable-master.
  • They implemented a 24 hour timer on the horse races
  • So with the time limits you can get 14 tokens a day per character 30+ (8 quests, 2 horse races) -> (11 tokens and horse token on your first day)
    8 tokens a day on characters under 30 (8 quests)
  • 19 hours so you can do all 8 quests again
