Emissary of Bristlebane in the Plane of Knowledge.

Bristlebane Day is Norrath's April Fools' Day. Bristlebane is the god of mischief.

For 2017, the quests returned March 22 at 00:00PDT and ended April 5 23:00PDT.

Mini Jokester, quest reward for group task This Ain't Right.

Quests[edit]

  • Achievement: The Gift of Laughter - This achievement gives you the suffix 'the Lunatic' and the painting: Haunting Laughter. At this time the exact details are unknown how to get this achievement. It appears to be that on April 1st some characters randomly get a Gift of Laughter buff. Upon zoning with the buff, they get the achievement. A thread on this is on the Daybreak forum here.

2016[edit]

For 2016, the quests returned March 23 at 00:00PDT and ended April 4 23:00PDT.

In 2016, the achievement The Gift of Laughter was added. See Quests above.

On April 1, most characters in the Guild Lobby are invisible, except for their primary / secondary items and their name (Shadowman illusion). Some are tumbleweeds, vases, or treasure chests.

Bristlebane tells you, 'You'll be MUCH easier to draw like this!'

2015[edit]

For 2015, the quests returned March 25 to April 8.

2014[edit]

For 2014, April 1st began with Bristlebane randomly changing the appearance of people in the Guild Lobby. It was the same as what happened in 2013.

Also, on April 1, the theme music you hear when EQ starts was changed. If you have the music off (like I do) you could have heard it by playing eqtheme.mp3 in your EverQuest folder. You can click here if you want to hear it.

For 2014, SOE has announced that the quests will return April 9 to April 23.

2013[edit]

April 1st is Bristlebane Day! Keep an eye out for an Emissary of Bristlebane in the Plane of Knowledge, who will have a task for adventurers level 55 and up starting on March 31st.

2009[edit]

Bristlebane Day, 2009 - Beastlord name change. (Image: massively.joystiq.com)

The classes got a rename.

The EverQuest team said this was "to correct some inconsistencies with many player's perception of class roles compared to their intended roles...[they] hope that the new names will help alleviate any confusion there might have been about their intended roles and class vision. We've also modified the various class titles as they change over levels in order to more accurately portray their progression through the game."
