How to Earn Fireworks

If you are a role-player or one who enjoys getting your hands on some fireworks this quest is right up your alley. In every MMOG people love the fireworks. These nice colorful explosives provide a nice view in the night sky of Middle-earth and can make you the life of the party when set off at the right moment. Supplies of Fireworks are somewhat limited in Middle-earth, but there is one quest line that will allow you to earn some of your very own.

 

Lobelia's Fireworks

Quest Level:
9

The first step to earning your fireworks is like most other things. You have to do someone a favor. Lobelia Sackville-Baggins birthday is drawing near and to make the festivities as grand as that of Bilbo Baggins she wants a large order of fireworks. You will need to seek out Hyacinth Took just west of the Great Smials in Tuckborough.

When you reach Hyacinth Took she will inform you that she is out of fireworks and ingredients. She will then tell you to return to Lobelia Sackville-Baggins and make sure she understands she will have to cover the cost. Return to Lobelia Sackville-Baggins and tell her what was said.

Lobelia Sackville-Baggins still wants the fireworks. A mere price will not stop her from outdoing that Bilbo Baggins. Return to Hyacinth Took and tell her what Lobelia has said. Tired of running yet? I hope not.

Lobelia's Location: 29.36s, 71.33w at Bag End on the Hill within the Shire.

Hyacinth Took's location: 33.44s, 71.42w just west of the Great Smials in Tuckborough.

Seeking Saltpetre

Quest Level:
9

Now that Lobelia has agreed to pay for the fireworks Hyacinth Took can start sending for ingredients. Care to take a guess at who just volunteered to play messenger? Your first stop will be Cam Puddifoot a pig-farmer in Budgeford. He has biggest manure-pits in all the Shire. Hope you brought a solid container. Make your way east to Cam's farm in Budgeford.

Cam Puddifoot's location: 31.19s, 65.54w in Budgeford.

Wolves in the Fields

Quest Level:
9

Cam is willing to deliver the Saltpetre, but first you must do him a favor. (Bet you didn't see that one coming.) Wolves have overrun Cam's field to the east and his pigs are terrified. He wants you to head over to his field and rid him of the wolves terrorizing his bacon bits. Slay the six wolves inhabiting Cam's field and return to him in Budgeford. With the wolves out of the way Cam will make the delivery. Return to Hyancinth Took in Tuckborogh and speak with her.

Hart Holeman's location: 28.08s, 70.10w

 

The Big Black Bear

Quest Level:

By now you have probably guessed that Hart needs a favor. It seems a big black bear has taken up residence on Hart's wood pile just to the north. He wants you to slay the creature so that he can once again have his stock of wood. Slay the bear and speak with Hart again. Now that the bear has been dealt with he will send the charcoal to Hyancinth Took. Return to Hyacinth and speak with her again.

Brimstone and Sparks

Quest Level:

Now that you have collected the first two ingredients you need brimstone and iron filings. Hyancinth will tell you a Dwarf in Needlehole named Onar is the one to see. Make your way to Needlehole and speak to Onar. Needlehole lies to the northwest and rest on the border between the Shire and Erud Luin. Speak with Onar and you will find he makes a quick and fair trade and he didn't even want a favor. Return to and speak with Hyancinth Took.

By Hook or By Crook

Lobelia will tell you to speak with Shirriff Smallburrow and help retrieve the fireworks from the thieves.

Shirriff Smallburrow will tell you the matter is outside his jurisdiction and that you should speak with Paladin Took in the Great Smials located in Tuckborough about the location of the fireworks.
