The Elder Scrolls Online Kicks Off Tamriel’s New Life Festival

The Elder Scrolls Online kicks off an amazing end of year celebration across Tamriel, the New Life Festival. This event is filled with limited time quests taking players across the continent to snag fun and festive rewards as well as a special mead that allows players to earn Double XP. The New Life Festival is live now and will end on Wednesday January 4th at 10 AM EST.

** Also a quick reminder that entries for the “Trip of a Lifetime” Giveaway close December 16, so this is the last week for players to register to win one of five Grand Prize travel packages to awe-inspiring exotic destinations around the world, including air, accommodations and special excursions led by local guides. Entering is easy: players just need to log in and play The Elder Scrolls Online and then register on the web site at

All players need to do in order to join in on the fun is meet Breda outside Windhelm for their first quest, entitled “The New Life Festival.” Once players complete that, they can complete up to nine more daily quests, each themed for Tamriel’s different races and located in their respective zones. In addition, drinking Breda’s Magnificent Mead (located in a keg nearby her) will net players double XP for two hours.

As a reward for completing each quest, players will get a New Life Gift Box, which contains a random assortment of New Life Festival-themed goodies. Each New Life Gift Box will always contain a random crafting material (Provisioning ingredient, Alchemy reagent, or Health glyph), a consumable version of a New Life-themed Memento, and a Skinchanger style item (Wolfsbane Incense). In addition, players will get one of a set of special rewards, including a Skinchanger Motif chapter, a New Life recipe or either green, blue, or gold quality, or a special New Life Collectible, which includes a Memento, a costume, or one of two hats.

Those who complete all of Breda’s quests will receive additional rewards including a special new dye, New Life Cerulean, and the New Life Celebrant achievement. Completing all New Life-related achievements will grant the “Magnanimous” title.
