What is the timer on a fellowship fire? Most in general chat are saying 4 hours, some are saying 6hours. Mine is over 5 hours now and some are saying maybe I did a quest to extend it. Ive never heard of that. Is there a way to extend fires? Are fire duration timers affected by the zone it's in? And how long does a fire really last?

Quick Googling, I can't find a definitive answer, or any answer, really. Someone should test it out! Suffice to say the basic campfire lasts a long time, longer than the average grind camp, methinks. The special campfires are a lot shorter-lived, such that I stopped using them because the buffs they provide now are pretty trivial and I stopped counting how many times after a wipe I tried to click back to the campfire only to discover it had burned out unbeknownst to me. Special campfires are another one of many older EQ features which should be upgraded but never will be.

I've never had one go away while I was using it. But my searches keep finding variations of this info:
Depending on how many members are in the zone and near it, the Fellowship of Honor campfire last many hours (4 hours or so with just 1-2 members near it). Other campfires will only last around 1 hour before expiring.

Only one campfire can exist in the world per fellowship at any particular time. Trying to create a new campfire while one already exists will give an error message. The person who created a campfire can remove the campfire at any time from anywhere in the world. In addition, campfires will naturally fade away after one hour.

which matches my experience: I've never had one fade while I was hanging around, but I usually play in couple of hour chunks.

Went to Thuliasaur tonight, did a couple hours of solo tasks and dropped a basic fire and ported out to the lobby before I left to run errands. When I got back and sat down to more EQ, 5hours and 33 minutes had gone by and the fire was still up. I think 6 hours is my answer :)
