Actually, I’m a trap.
This year for Bristlebane Day, the prank in EQ1 takes place in the guild lobby. On zoning in, you receive a tell from Bristlebane, “You’ll be MUCH easier to draw like this.” This spike trap is one of a few possibilities for appearances. (Casting spells causes the spikes to shoot up.) Other folks appear as claw traps, chests, gelatinous cubes or invisible with only their weapons showing. The funny thing is it actually helped cut down on the lag in this zone.
Happy Bristlebane Day!
