    History and Trivia

    Erollisi Day has underwent many evolutions over its long history.

    • 2005: Priest Aaronolis Swornlove offered the quest Love of Ages Past, which rewarded Erollisi’s Charm, an item that converted into a mounted house item version. This quest was later discontinued.
    • 2006: Goldie Hammerfall and Stinky Sideswiper offered the original Hearts a’Flutter contests.
    • 2009: Prelude to the opening of Shard of Love: A Moment of Valor. During Erollisi Day players could participate in the one-time quests, Seeking Love’s Fate through Valor or Seeking Love’s Fate in the City of Hate. In a GU53 world event the Shard of Love was opened up by completing Through the Gates of Bliss for Love or Through the Gates of Bliss for Hate. This also began furthering Erollisi Marr’s story.
    • 2009/2010: Landax Z’Torzin offered evil aligned players the quest Bouquet of Thorny Trust, which introduced citizens of Freeport, Neriak, and Gorowyn to the Swornlove siblings. The quest was discontinued in 2011 after New Halas was added to the game.
    • 2011: During the one-time quest Total Eclipse of the Heart, players discovered that Selena (aka Ullkorruuk) never passed into the Ethernere.
    • 2012: A prelude event to Erollisi Day, “A Goddess Risen“, introduced the quests Unbreak My Heart, Captive Heart, and Thief of Hearts. We learned that both Erollisi Marr and Ulkorruuk’s essences were trapped inside the Cairn of the Huntress, and returned them to Norrath at the end of the series. (Erollisi did not become worshippable until 2015; Ulkorruuk is still not worshippable.)
    • 2012: The Hearts a’Flutter contest got a modern revamp to its current version.

     

    Did You Know? Many Erollisi-related quest names are titles (or lyrics) of songs!

    *** Tainted Love was revamped with a different arrangement in 1981 by Soft Cell, a version that Marilyn Manson later covered in 2001

      How do you get the candy/love notes? I’ve been killing mobs from the list for half an hour but I still haven’t found any on them.

        Are there specific types you’re looking for (for the new achievements) or are you just trying to mass-gather for crafting?

            Sorry for the delayed response, been busy with classes.

            It may depend where you’re killing, or possibly the new achievements have affected drop rate. If you think a mob should be dropping love notes/candy and aren’t, make sure you report it over on the official forums.

      Obtaining holiday harvests from the pack poney was the easiest way to get the achievements – though I’m still working on them. Seems there area few that are hard to get… I cleared an entire zone of Brokenskull pirates – and nothing.
