Elder Scrolls Online New Life Festival

If you’re playing The Elder Scrolls Online then you’ll want to partake in the game’s New Life Festival. The in-game event began today and allows for players to get exclusive items and gain double experience for a limited time. The festival is set to last until Wednesday, January 4.

Wondering how to partake in the New Life Festival? Here’s the official instructions courtesy of Bethesda:

To partake in the festivities, players need to meet Breda outside Windhelm for their first quest, simply titled “The New Life Festival.” Once her requests are completed, players will have the opportunity to complete up to nine 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 near Breda) will net players double XP for two hours.

Players will want to complete as many quests as they can as players will receive a “New Life Gift Box” upon completion. These contain random goodies that are specifically themed as part of the festival. Here are the full details of what players can expect from these gift boxes:

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 receive one of a set of special rewards, including a Skinchanger Motif chapter, a New Life recipe of either green, blue or gold-quality, or a special New Life Collectible, which includes a Memento, a Costume, or one of two hats

Players that complete all of the quests from Breda will receive additional rewards including a special new dye – New Life Cerulean – and the New Life Celebrant achievement. Completing all the New Life-related achievements will grant the “Magnanimous” title.
