Hello everyone, my name is Tianlein and today we talk about the upcoming Holiday Event, the New Life Festival 2017 in the Elder Scrolls Online We still have to wait for an official announcement to know exactly in detail what will happen in the upcoming event but i wanted to share with you my experience from the last New Life Festival 2016 and show you all rewards that you could earn Since the last holiday events worked similar to to the events last year, i assume that the New Life Festival will probably not have many changes too In case you are only interested in a specific topic please take a look in the description. The most important question is probably when will the New Life Festival Start? After i read the descriptions of the upcoming crown store items, my guess is that the event will start on the 14th of December and last until the 2nd January.
Last year you had to acquire the free New Life Festival Scroll from the crown store to start the event After you read the scroll you have to travel to Breda which you can find in Eastmarch North of the Kynesgrove Wayshrine you will find Breda’s Tent There you will not only find Breda but also a keg with Breda’s Magnificent Mead If you drank from the Keg you got a double experience buff for two hours and you had to come back every two hours to refresh the xp buff We will see if xp buff process works this year similar To start the New Life Festival quests we have to speak to Breda She will offer you every day 9 unique New Life Festival quests which you can do once per day with each of your characters Breda gives you the quests in a random order, but you will be able to obtain every quest every day during the holiday event Each quest is themed for Tamriels different races and located in their respective zones The Castle Charm Challenge is a Breton tradition For that you have to travel to north western part of Stormhaven Here you have to visit Alcaire Castle and entertain the people at the marked areas on your map Last year you had to perfom in the Old Goat Inn, then at the Alcaire Marketplace and finally you had show your performance in the castle itself.
