The annual Jester’s Festival is coming to The Elder Scrolls Online! During the festival, players can receive a uniquely mischievous task once per day after talking to each Jester. The Jester’s Festival kicks off on Thursday, March 23, at 10:00am EDT and concludes on Tuesday, April 4, at 10am EDT.
Each year, to celebrate absurdity, troupes of jesters and fools gather and encourage the people of Tamriel to toss aside their notions of status, honor, and class. It’s very common that the performers roam the streets mocking the rich and famous, towns celebrate with a variety of traditional festive pranks, and guests are encouraged to participate in silly games to win joke prizes.
Throughout the duration of the event, you can decorate yourself with Festival-themed items and show off your zany side to the pavilions that have been set up just outside the cities of Ebonheart, Vulkhel Guard, and Daggerfall. At each location, you will find one of three Jesters in extremely convincing dress up as either King Jorunn, Queen Ayrenn, or King Emeric.
Once completing a daily task for one of the Jesters, a Jester’s Festival Box is avaiable for players to get. Here’re some seriously silly rewards included in this special box:
- A new hat – The Crown of Misrule
- A host of fun new consumables
- Unique Jester’s Festival mementos: Cherry Blossom Branch and the Pie of Misrule which grant a two-hour buff to XP gains during the Jester’s Festival period
- New Jester’s Festival Housing items: Jester’s Large and Small Trees and Jester’s Standard
Except the Achievement that grants the completely legitimate title of Royal Jester, players can also earn other new Achievements. Moreover, some Jester’s Festival-themed items will be added to the Crown Store:
- Royal Court Jester costume
- Bi-Color Coxcomb Cap
- Fool’s Cap and Masque
- Ass-Ears Jester Cap
- The Jester personality
