Tinkerfest (EQ2 Live Event)  

Tinkerfest 2015 will start July 17th and run through August 3rd.

Tinkerfest is the great annual gnomish festival of tinkering and all things tinkered. It's that time in the year when gnomes spend time with family, friends and clockworks, exchange gifts and celebrate the gnomish life. Battleclock matches and fireworks displays are just the start of the exciting events going on in the Gnomeland Security Headquarters.

Speaking Gnomish is necessary for this holiday!

In 2010 the shinies were extended to spawn in every zone with an unstable tinkered portal and in the Gnomeland Security Headquarters.

The yellow shinies are actually tiny gears which give a Shiny Tinkerfest Cog, which are used for purchasing items from the merchant, Myron, or for crafting Tinkered recipes from the Tinkerfest blueprints. They require a skill of 5 in Gathering.

The purple shinies will give pieces to the Tinkerfest event collection quest.

Occurs annually in late summer.
